“While an arrest has been made, we remain keen to hear from any members of the public who still believe they can assist with this investigation.

“In particular, we’d like to speak with the occupants of a dark Audi car, possibly a Q3 or Q5, with roof bars, which was travelling towards Elie from St Monans around the time of the collision. We believe these individuals may have witnessed what happened, but I’d like to stress they were in no way involved in this incident.
