Officers from Highland and Islands Police Division have named an Inverness man who was killed in a road crash.

Enquiries are continuing following the fatal collision on the A98 near Tyrie.

The man can be named as 52-year-old Colin Drummond from the Inverness area.

A statement, which was released by his family, read: "Colin was a much loved father, grandfather, son and brother. He will be sadly missed and our lives won’t be the same without him.”

The incident was around 5.45am on Friday on the A98 Fraserburgh to Banff road and involved a white VW Crafter Van.

Road Policing Sergeant Steve Manson said: “Our thoughts remain with Colin’s family and friends as we continue with our enquiries into the incident.

"I would like to renew our appeal for anyone who was in the area around the time of the collision and has yet to contact police to get in touch.

"We believe Colin walked from the Rosehearty area towards the A98 and then along the A98 towards Banff. If anyone was in the area and may have relevant information to assist with the enquiry I would ask them to contact us."

Anyone with information is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident number 0433 of the October 8, 2021.
