Two people have died after a road traffic collision in Glenrothes, Fife.

Police Scotland said the two pedestrians, a 59-year-old woman and a 61-year-old man, were pronounced dead at the scene.

The incident took place around 10.10am on Saturday on the A911 Leslie Road, Glenrothes between Rothes and Leslie roundabouts.

A grey Ford Fiesta travelling north-west was involved in the collision, and police said the 20-year-old male driver suffered minor injuries.

Sergeant Ewan Pearce from Fife's road policing unit said: "Tragically as a result of this collision two people have lost their lives and our thoughts are with their family and friends at this difficult time.

"I would ask anyone who may have been travelling on the A911 Leslie Road, Glenrothes, at the time of the collision on Saturday morning and who witnessed what happened to come forward to assist our investigation.

"I would specifically ask that the drivers of a blue Kia Sportage (or similar) and a vehicle drawing a horsebox who are believed to have been in the area at the time of the collision to contact the police.

"Anyone who may have dash-cam footage of the vehicle or pedestrians immediately prior to the collision, and has not yet spoken to officers, are asked to get in touch to provide this at their earliest opportunity."
