Police are appealing for witnesses following the death of a 35-year-old man who had been cycling on the B9126 , Kirkton of Skene, on Sunday

Members of the public stopped to assist and paramedics attended but the man died at the scene.

Inspector Lorraine Mackie, North East Road Policing Unit, said: "Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the man who died.

"Enquiries are ongoing to establish why the man came off his bike and so we are keen to speak to anyone who may have been on that road between 2pm and 3pm yesterday and who may have information or dash cam footage.

"In particular, we are keen to trace the driver of a dark coloured 4 x 4 vehicle which was travelling north at the time as their information may be of assistance to our investigation."

Details can be passed to Police Scotland via 101 quoting reference number 2053 of September 12, 2021.
