A Scottish tourist has died after being knocked off his bicycle on the Spanish island of Majorca.

Spanish officials said Graeme McGilvray, 49, died after he was hit by a truck on a busy road between Port D'alcudia and Alcudia on Tuesday.

Mr McGilvray, who was born in Glasgow, had been staying at a hotel in the tourist resort of Puerto Pollensa.

Majorca's year-round sunny climate and spectacular roads make it a popular cycling holiday destination.
