A man has died after a crash involving a car and a motorbike in Angus.

The 27-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene on the A930 Barry Road, Carnoustie, on Friday afternoon.

Police Scotland, who were called to the scene shortly before 3pm, said the incident involved a black Volkswagen Golf and a motorcycle.

Officers are appealing for any witnesses who may have seen either vehicle before the crash to get in touch.

A driver who died after a car crashed into a wall in the Stirling area has been named by police.

Ryan Muir died following the collision on the A91 at Blairlogie, west of the junction with Manor Loan, at around 9.15pm on Wednesday.

The 26-year-old was driving a silver MG ZR car when it left the road and hit the wall of a property before striking a tree and coming to a stop.

Mr Muir, from Menstrie, was taken to Forth Valley Royal Hospital, where he later died.

A 27-year-old man, who was a passenger in the car, suffered minor injuries. He was taken to the same hospital before being released.

Officers said inquiries to establish the full circumstances surrounding the crash are continuing and anyone with information should contact them.

Sergeant David Ross, of the road policing unit at Stirling, said: "Our thoughts and sympathies are with Ryan's family at this time and we are continuing to provide them with all the necessary support and assistance they require.

"We are still eager to hear from any motorists who were on the A91 on Wednesday evening and witnessed exactly what happened.

"If you believe you have any information of use to this investigation then please contact police immediately."
