The seven-year-old was struck at 11:15 on Monday by a Ford Ka on the A91 Low Road, near to the Burnside Auto Centre, in Auchtermuchty.

The boy was treated at Ninewells Hospital and released on Tuesday.

The 48-year-old female driver of the car stopped immediately at the scene and helped police officers with their inquiries.
