A pensioner who died after being hit by a quad bike which mounted a kerb has been named.

Margaret Meldrum was walking along the pavement in Millbrix Avenue, Glasgow, when the incident happened at around 3.10pm on Saturday.

Emergency services attended, but the 75-year-old died at the scene in the Knightswood area of the city.

A 23-year-old man who was arrested in connection with the incident has been released pending further inquiries.

Police are appealing for information about the incident, which involved a red Honda quad bike.

Sergeant Nikki Taylor, of the Glasgow Road Policing Unit, said: "We are appealing for anyone who may have been in the Knightswood area yesterday afternoon and saw a quad bike being driven so we can establish exactly what happened here.

"We know there was a white van in the street at the time of the incident and we would appeal to the driver to get in touch, as they may have vital information.

"You may also have dash-cam or home CCTV that can help us, please look back. We urge you to get in touch."
