An elderly man was found dead in a car after an apparent one-vehicle crash on a rural road near Perth.

A passing member of the public found the red Ford Ka by a bridge on an unclassified road between Pitcairngreen and Dalcrue at about 05:30.

Emergency services believe the crash could have happened much earlier in the morning, as the car's engine was cold when they arrived.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene, and investigations are ongoing.
