An 86-year-old man has died following a crash between two cars in Ayrshire.

His death came five days after the collision between a BMW and a Mercedes on the B743 near Auchencruive Agricultural College.

Police Scotland have not released the full name of the dead man but said his surname was Allan and he lived in the Mauchline area.

An 85-year-old woman, a man, 30, and two children aged five and seven were treated in hospital then released.

The collision was at about 17:25 on Saturday, 16 December, between Whitletts roundabout in Ayr and Mossblown.

A black BMW 116 travelling west and a silver Mercedes A150 travelling east were involved.

Police have made a fresh appeal for information.

Sgt Kevin Blackley said: "Although the road is a country road, it's only a couple of miles long and is on the outskirts of Ayr and near to the village of Mossblown.

"At this time of night it can be relatively busy, and indeed a number of people did stop to assist following the crash, however, we would appeal to anyone who saw the crash and who has not yet spoken to police, to get in touch.

"If you saw the crash, the vehicles prior to the crash or have any information that will assist officers with their investigation, then please contact Irvine road policing department."
