Police have appealed for witnesses after two people died in a crash on the A90 south of Fraserburgh in Aberdeenshire.

The driver of a Honda Civic, named as John Richards, 22, from Peterhead, and his passenger, Dora Belk, 25, from Fraserburgh, died at the scene.

The collision, with a Fiat Ducato, happened at about 16:10 on Sunday.

The 24-year-old male driver of the Ducato was taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.

His injuries were said not to be life threatening.

Sgt David Pirie, of Grampian Police, said: "Tragically, two young people have died today as a result of this collision.

"This will obviously be a particularly difficult time for all of the family and friends of the two people who died, and my thoughts are with them at this sad time."

Distinctive car

He explained: "We'd obviously like to speak to anyone who witnessed the collision or its immediate aftermath.

"We're particularly keen to trace the occupants of a dark green or possibly silver saloon car, possibly an MG, that stopped at the scene.

"We'd also like to speak with anyone who saw a fairly distinctive dark blue Honda Civic being driven on the A90 between Peterhead and Fraserburgh during the late afternoon of Sunday."
