Sergeant Ewan Pearce, from Fife’s Road Policing Unit, said: “Our thoughts and sympathies continue to be with Mr and Mrs Taggerty’s family and friends at this extremely difficult time and we have specially trained officers providing them with support.

“Our inquiries have identified a blue Vauxhall van, either a Movano or Vivaro model, in the area at the time of the collision and I’d urge the driver of this vehicle to contact us to assist our investigation.

“Similarly anyone with information, or relevant dash-cam footage, that has not yet spoken to, or provided this to officers, is asked to contact us as soon as possible.”
