Tributes have been paid to a Fife man who died after his tractor overturned on a country road earlier this week.
Malcolm White, who lived in Pittenweem, was pronounced dead following the tragic accident in the Anstruther area on Wednesday evening.
The 53-year-old had been travelling in his red and black Case agricultural tractor when it overturned on the road from Ovenstone to Carnbee sometime between 8.25pm and 8.40pm.
Emergency services rushed to the scene after the accident was reported, but Mr White had passed away.
Investigations are continuing and police are looking into suggestions he may have fallen ill at the wheel.
His heartbroken family have released a statement through Police Scotland, which read: “Malcolm was a loving, caring and adoring husband, father, brother and son.
“He will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved him.
“We respectfully request privacy at this most difficult time.”
Mr White was said to have lived in the area for a long time with his wife Joanie and was well known locally.
He was a former employee of local firm Ovenstone Engineering and at the time of his death was understood to have been working for a farm near Carnbee.
Residents living in Colinsburgh reported hearing “sirens screaming through the village” after the alarm was raised.
Enquiries into the collision continue and anyone who may have witnessed this, or saw the tractor in the area beforehand, is urged to get in touch.
Sergeant Alastair Purvis said: “Sadly this incident has resulted in the death of the tractor driver and while we are satisfied no other vehicles were involved, we are keen to hear from anyone who witnessed what happened.
“Motorists or other members of the public who were on the Ovenstone to Carnbee road on Wednesday evening and who have information that can assist with our ongoing investigation should contact police immediately.”
