Police have confirmed that a couple involved in a road accident on Christmas Day, in which the husband was killed, were from Edinburgh.

Malcolm Reid, 71, died in the crash on the A90 Forfar to Brechin road, despite the efforts of firefighters and a trauma team from Ninewells Hospital in Dundee.

His wife June, 73, was said to be in a stable condition in Ninewells Hospital.

The couple lived in Edinburgh's Moredun Park Drive.

The accident happened near a part of the A90 that had been closed earlier due to black ice.

No other vehicles were involved in the crash at about 1:15pm, 100 yards from the Parkford layby.
