The 59-year-old driver of the van was uninjured in the crash.

Sergeant Colin Morrison, from Police Scotland's Road Policing Unit, said: “Our thoughts continue to be with Mr Lauder’s family and friends at this extremely difficult time.

“I’d ask anyone who witnessed the crash, or who may have dash cam footage of either the van or Mr Lauder before the collision happened, to provide any relevant information to officers at the earliest opportunity.”

Anyone with any information should contact police on 101, quoting incident 0154 of 5 November 2021.
