Amber Cameron, eight, killed on bike in Elderslie

Police have released the name of an eight-year-old girl who died after being hit by a bus in Renfrewshire.

Amber Cameron was struck while riding her bike on Barclay Avenue, in Elderslie, near Johnstone, at about 10:55 on Tuesday.

Emergency services were called but she died at the scene.

Inquiries are continuing into the collision and police have urged anyone with information, or any witnesses to the crash, to get in touch.

Susan Carlton, head teacher of Wallace Primary, where Amber was a pupil, said: "This has been a very sad day for the school.

'Lovely girl'

"Amber was a lovely little girl who loved learning and thrived in all school activities, particularly arts, which she especially liked.

"She was very popular with classmates and will be sadly missed."

Ms Carlton said the school had been helping pupils talk about their loss and support and counselling was available if needed.

"The thoughts of the whole school community are with Amber's family," she said.

"At an appropriate time, and with the agreement of Amber's family, we will look to commemorate the time Amber had with us and the contribution she made to the life of the school."
