A woman pedestrian who was killed after being hit by at least one car on the A90 has been named by police.

Gillian Ancell was struck on the dual carriageway near Tipperty in Aberdeenshire at about 18:15 on Thursday.

Grampian Police said the 56-year-old was from the Ellon area.

The road, from Aberdeen to Ellon, was closed in both directions from Thursday evening until Friday afternoon for accident investigations.

Police said Ms Ancell had been struck by a Renault car on the northbound carriageway.

Officers said it was likely that she was then hit by other vehicles.

They have appealed for drivers who believe they may have struck Ms Ancell, or who saw what happened, to contact them.
