The family of a 21-year-old man who was killed in a two-car crash in Fife on Thursday have said they are "devastated" by his death.

Liam Graham died after his Volkswagen Golf collided with a Toyota Hilux on Abernethy Road, near Newburgh, just before 07:00.

Two men in the other vehicle were taken to hospital.

Mr Graham's family said he lived in Newburgh with his fiancee and their daughter, who was one on Tuesday.

He was due to marry his fiancee next year and had set the date for the wedding just a few days earlier, on Valentine's Day.

The family statement said he had moved to Scotland from his native Wakefield in Yorkshire five years ago.

It said: "He was a deeply loved and devoted fiance of Karen, very proud and adoring dad to Ashlyn, supportive stepdad to the boys and loving brother to Maia and Georgia.

"He also leaves another four sisters and extended family members in Yorkshire and his in-laws Lynne and David, of Craigrothie.

"His loss has left them all devastated and they ask that they be given the peace and understanding to grieve at this very difficult time."

Police in Fife are continuing their appeal for witnesses.
