The family of a murdered Kirkcaldy man have paid tribute to him saying he will be "sorely missed".

Darren Adie, 42, was discovered unconscious at about 18:45 on Tweed Avenue, near its junction with Lawson Street, on Saturday.

He was taken to the town's Victoria Hospital but later died.

Police have renewed their appeal for information. Inquiries so far have established there were people in Tweed Avenue about the time of the stabbing.

Det Ch Insp Raymond Brown, of Police Scotland, said: "I want to thank the community for their cooperation and assistance so far.

"Darren was well known in the Gallatown area and I'm keen to speak to anyone who may have seen him on Saturday in the hours before he died.

"I would also ask anyone who was in the Gallatown area on Saturday and who may have seen something unusual or anyone acting suspiciously to please get in touch with us.

Mr Adie's family said: "Darren was a much loved son, brother and father who will be sorely missed.

"We are grateful for the support of our friends and family."
