Police have appealed for information following the death of a 79-year-old woman who was hit by a car in Aberdeen.

Lillian Morrison was struck by a Black Vauxhall Corsa on Queen's Road and died at the scene as a result of her injuries.

It happened on Thursday near the junction with Groats Road, closing both roads for about six hours while investigations took place.

Grampian Police has urged anyone with any information to come forward.

Officers are keen to speak to the driver of a small, white vehicle, possibly a Ford Fiesta, which was travelling west on Queen's Road just prior to the collision.

Insp Ian Wallace, Road Policing Department, said: "Our thoughts are with the family following the death of their loved one at this tragic time.

"As our investigation progresses we are keen to speak to anyone who was on Queens Road near Groats Road at the time of the collision and crucially anyone who saw the collision or those involved.

"If this is you, please contact us directly, even the smallest piece of information can assist us to establish the full circumstances."
