A 16-year-old boy who died after a car left a road and hit a tree has been named by police.

Front seat passenger Jack Frame, from Coalburn, South Lanarkshire, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The accident involved a blue BMW 1 series car and happened on New Trows Road, near Lesmahagow, at about 02:20 on Sunday.

The driver and two passengers - two men aged 20 and 18 and a 19-year-old woman - were also taken to hospital.
