The family of a man who died following a car crash with a Ford Transit van in Fife has paid tribute to the "dearly devoted father" and "loving husband".

Alex Muirhead, 55, was the driver of a blue Ford Focus that collided with a Ford Transit on the B9157, outside Kirkcaldy, at 07:00 on Friday.

Mr Muirhead, from Inverkeithing, was taken to the ERI. Two other motorists suffered minor injuries.

His wife, Cathi, said he would be missed by his family and workmates.

She said: "Alex was a devoted father to Lee and Greg and dearly loved husband to me. He was also a loving son to Betty and brother to Sharon.

"Over the past couple of years Alex had been heavily involved with the local Air Training Cadets and its extended family.

"He will be missed by his workmates at Havelock Europa in Kirkcaldy.

"Our thought and prayers go out to the family of the passenger who had been travelling to work with him and stayed with Alex until he was airlifted to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary.

"Words cannot explain the thanks Alex's family would like to say to the various staff at the hospital and police who looked after him and the family."
