A woman in her eighties has died following a crash involving a lorry in Aberdeen.

Emergency Services were called to the collision on King Street, at the St Machar roundabout, at 11.40am.

Roads policing Sergeant Scott Deans said: “Our thoughts are with this woman’s family and friends at this very sad and tragic time.

“I know some members of the public tried to help at the scene which would have been upsetting and I would like to thank them for their efforts.

“An investigation is ongoing into the circumstances of this incident and I would ask anyone who witnessed what happened but has not yet spoken to the police to please get in touch by calling 101 and quoting reference number 1256 of September 10.

“Road closures were in place at St Machar Drive and at King Street heading towards Bridge of Don.

“I would like to thank motorists for their patience.”

The roads have now reopened.
