A pensioner has been charged after a cyclist died following an alleged hit-and-run in Fife.

Scott Walker was found on the A917 between Elie and St Monans at around 7.45pm on July 8.

The 34-year-old was taken to Ninewells Hospital in Dundee where he died the next day.

On Wednesday a 74-year-old man was arrested and held in custody.

He is expected to appear at Dundee Sheriff Court on Thursday.

Police are continuing to appeal for information, with the occupants of an Audi being sought as possible witnesses.

Detective Chief Inspector John Anderson said: "I would once again like to extend my deepest sympathies to the family of Scott Walker and to thank all of those who came forward to provide us with information.

"While an arrest has been made, we remain keen to hear from any members of the public who still believe they can assist with this investigation.

"In particular, we'd like to speak with the occupants of a dark Audi car, possibly a Q3 or Q5, with roof bars, which was travelling towards Elie from St Monans around the time of the collision.

"We believe these individuals may have witnessed what happened, but I'd like to stress they were in no way involved in this incident.

"If you believe you have any relevant information, but have yet to contact us, please do so immediately."

Those with information can contact Police Scotland on 101 and quote incident number 3910 of July 8 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
