Police have named a man who died after his vehicle left the road and crashed in Fife.

Mark Kelbie, 35, from Edinburgh, was driving a silver BMW when the accident happened on the A915 between Upper Largo and Largoward at about 05:00 on Saturday.

It is thought that his car may have struck a wall before leaving the road.

Mr Kelbie was taken to Victoria Hospital in Kirkcaldy, where he later died.

In a statement issued through Police Scotland, his family said: "Mark was a loving son, father and husband who will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved him.

"The family are requesting privacy at this difficult time."
