A pedestrian who died after being hit by a bus has been named by police.
Graeme Innes, 52, collided with a Stagecoach Bluebird carrying 25 passengers southbound on the A96 on Sunday morning.
Police and paramedics were called to the incident, two miles south of Keith in Morayshire, but Mr Innes, who lived locally, could not be saved.
The driver of the bus was not injured but one passenger required treatment for shock.
The road was closed for eight hours to allow investigations to be carried out and local diversions were put in place.
Officers from Grampian Police are appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident, which took place at around 11.20am, to come forward.
Sergeant David Pirie of the Road Policing Department said: "Tragically, Mr Innes, a 52-year-old local man, was pronounced dead at the scene. Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this difficult time. Our enquiries are progressing; however, at this stage it is too early to establish the full circumstances surrounding the collision.
“Collision investigators have carried out a detailed examination of the scene and a number of enquiries are ongoing. I would ask anyone who may have seen a male pedestrian in that area around the time of the collision to get in touch with us."
Anyone with any information is asked to contact Grampian Police on 0845 600 5 700 or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
