The wife of a man who died following a hit-and-run incident in South Ayrshire at the weekend has made an emotional appeal for information.

Ian Brown, 48, was struck by a vehicle as he walked home to Dailly after a night out at Girvan bowling club.

He was found dead on the B748 Dailly to Girvan road at 03:05 on Sunday.

In a public appeal, Mr Brown's wife Myra said his family had been devastated and urged anyone with information to come forward.

She said: "Ian was a loving husband and father. His death has left our whole family devastated and we will miss him dearly.

'Great loss'

"We live in a small community and are well known within that community - his death will be a great loss.

"I am asking anyone who knows anything, even if they think it's not relevant, to please pass it on to the police.

"It's so important to us that we find out what happened to Ian, so please, please come forward - only when we know what happened to Ian will we be able to begin the process of moving on and trying to come to terms with his death."

Police have said that Mr Brown had been enjoying a night out with friends before he died.

After leaving Girvan bowling club, he went to a local kebab shop which he left around midnight to begin his walk home.

Officers are trying to establish what happened to him over the next three hours.
