An inquiry into the death of a cyclist who fell off her bike while delivering phone books in Dumfries has been delayed until May.

Sheila Hyslop, 49, died of her injuries four days after the fall on Albert Road in Dumfries in March last year.

She was taken to the Western General Hospital in Edinburgh for treatment to a head injury but never recovered.

A fatal accident inquiry at Dumfries Sheriff Court was due this month but extra time has been allowed to prepare.
