His relatives have been made aware and a report has been submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.

The 48-year-old driver of the lorry was uninjured.

Sergeant Craig McDonald, Road Policing Unit, Motherwell who is appealing for any witnesses of the incident said: “I am keen to get a hold of any dash-cam footage drivers in the area at the time may have.

"From our enquiries so far, we know that there were a number of vehicles traveling east on Kirkshaws Road when the crash happened, so would ask any of those people, especially those with dash-cameras, to get in touch with police as soon as they can.

"We'd like to thank those who been in you touch so far, but if you haven't, and can assist, then please call officers at the Road Policing Unit at Motherwell via 101 quoting reference number 1025 of 2 March 2021."
