Karen Gillanders tribute after Aberdeen lorry collision death
Tribute has been paid to a 41-year-old woman who died after being hit by a lorry in Aberdeen.
Karen Gillanders was knocked down in the city's King Street on Monday morning.
Her mother Elizabeth said: "Karen was a beloved daughter, sister, sister-in-law, auntie, niece and cousin. She was a kind, caring and gentle person.
"In the last few years, she had carried out voluntary work at the Marie Curie charity shop."
She added:" "She was much loved by family, friends and everyone who knew her."
Insp Ian Kirkwood said: "We are keen to trace a male who may have witnessed the collision and who was crossing from the east pavement to the west pavement immediately prior to the collision.
"He was wearing a dark coloured, short-sleeved T-shirt and dark trousers, a rucksack and carrying a jacket in his right hand.
"We are also looking to speak to a female who was walking towards the pedestrian crossing on the west pavement around the time of the collision. She is described as wearing dark clothing and possibly carrying a small white bag."
