Police want to trace two drivers in an inquiry into a road crash that killed a former Scotland rugby international.

Keri Holdsworth, 36, from Edinburgh, died after a collision with another car on the A19 near Hartlepool at the junction with Dalton Piercy on 13 June.

Police said they particularly wanted to trace the driver of a light-coloured or white van, which may have been using the junction at the time.

They also want to speak to a military medic who stopped to give first aid.

He was driving a military ambulance at the time.

Ms Holdsworth won 15 caps for Scotland and played at the 2010 Women's Rugby World Cup.

She played for Watsonians at club level and went on to work as a physiotherapist.
