Police have named a toddler who died when she was hit by a car which crashed on to the pavement while she was walking with her brother and sister.

Harlow Edwards, two, from Coupar Angus, Perthshire, sustained fatal injuries and her six-year-old brother and 17-year-old sister were seriously injured in the incident.

The three siblings were walking along the pavement of the A94 Forfar Road in Coupar Angus when two cars collided at the junction with Larghan Park at around 3.20pm on Thursday.

It is thought the vehicles then hit the children.

The brother and sister were taken to Ninewells Hospital in Dundee, where they continued to receive treatment on Friday evening.

The family of the victims have been informed and police are appealing for any witnesses.

A force spokesman said: ''Inquiries into the full set of circumstances of the incident are ongoing and Tayside division would appeal to anyone who may have information that could assist officers with their inquiries to contact 101, or speak to any officer.

"As with all sudden deaths, a report has been submitted to the procurator fiscal.''
