Police said the 27-year-old woman driver of the grey Renault Captur has been traced and inquiries are ongoing to establish the full circumstances surrounding the incident.

Sergeant Roy McCarney of the Road Policing Unit said: “We have now traced the driver who is assisting police with their inquiries, however it is still vital that we speak to any witnesses to this incident in order to confirm a full picture of the circumstances.

“This happened on a sunny afternoon at lunchtime, there will have been plenty of people around and I would appeal to anyone who saw anything to get in touch.

“I would also like to reiterate our plea for motorists with dashcams who were travelling through the area at the time to please check their footage in case they have captured the incident or a grey Renault Captur driving on the road before or afterwards.

“Anyone with information is asked to contact Police Scotland through 101, quoting incident number 1550 of Monday July 19.”
