A married couple from Largs who died after being hit by a car in the North Ayrshire town at the weekend have been named as Bob and Rose Simpson.

Mr Simpson, 87, and his wife, 84, were crossing the A78 Greenock Road, at the town's sea front, when they were hit by a red Toyota at 09:15 on Saturday.

Mr Simpson died at the scene and his wife was airlifted to Glasgow's Southern General, where she later died.

The 34-year-old female driver was not injured in the crash.

She was taken to Inverclyde Hospital as a precaution.

Police have appealed for witnesses and said a report would be sent to the procurator fiscal.
