Police have said a man and boy killed in a road crash in Fife on Sunday were a father and son.

Bill Hawkes, 54, and 14-year-old Ciaran Hawkes were killed after their Mazda MX5 was involved in a collision with a Kia Optima on the A91 near Auchtermuchty.

Mr Hawkes and his son, who were from the Falkirk area, were travelling home from a classic car show.
