Police investigating the murder of a mother-of-two near Dundee are examining mobile phone images of a crash which left her husband seriously injured.

Jane Cumming, 40, was found dead in her home in Longforgan by police officers on 15 July.

Detectives are waiting to question her 45-year-old husband Neil in connection with the death. He has been unconscious in hospital since the crash on the A90.

The photographs of the scene were taken from a passing vehicle.

Tayside Police have linked the murder with the collision of her husband's car with a lorry on the outskirts of Dundee on Friday morning.

Mrs Cumming's body was found about two hours later.

It is believed that the photographs of the crash scene were taken by a child sitting in the back of a passing car.

Detectives have been treating Mrs Cumming's death as murder since a post-mortem examination.

Tayside Police said they were carrying out "extensive" door-to-door inquiries in the village and were also examining private CCTV in a bid to piece together Mrs Cumming's movements in the hours before her death.
