The second victim of a crash that killed two people earlier in the month has been named.

Howard Wilson, from Dumfries, died after colliding with another car on the A6094 in Midlothian on 2 October.

The driver of the other car, 68-year-old Irene Robson, from Peebles, was also killed in the crash.

Mr Wilson's family said the 41-year-old was a "much-loved son, brother and adored daddy". Police are still investigating the cause of the crash.

Officers said they were particularly keen to speak to those who stopped at the scene immediately after the collision if they had not already spoken to police.

The crash happened between Leadburn and Howgate at about 13:00 on 2 October.
