The parents of a teenage cyclist who died after a collision with a car have paid tribute to their "wonderful boy".

Iain Wightman, who was 18, died after the crash on a rural road on the outskirts of Edinburgh on Monday.

The collision, between Dalmeny and Kirkliston, involved a silver Land Rover Discovery.

A statement from Iain's family said: "Iain was a wonderful, wonderful boy, much loved and missed by his brother Colin, sister Katie and mum and dad."

It continued: "He wanted to train to be an Olympic cyclist and was a great rugby player.

"He is a great loss in our lives and will never be forgotten by those that knew him and we wish he was back with us."

The incident happened on Standingstane Road at its junction with Burnshot Road at about 10:30 on Monday.
