Police have identified a cyclist who died after a crash with a van in Fife.

The rider was involved in an accident with a white Volkswagen Crafter on the A913 Cupar to Newburgh road, half a mile east of the A92 Parbroath junction, at 06:45 on Thursday.

The man, believed to have been in his 40s, was taken to Ninewells Hospital in Dundee but later died.

Police appealed for help after initially being been unable to identify him.

Sgt Nicola Young, of the Fife road policing unit, said: "Following our earlier appeals for assistance from the public, we have now identified the cyclist and I would like to thank them for their assistance in this matter."
