Police Scotland have continued appeals for anyone with any information to come forward and are particularly asking for those with dashboard-mounted cameras to come forward.

Michael’s wife, Gaynor, said: “Michael was a wonderful, loving husband and a devoted father.”

Sergeant David Miller, of Police Scotland’s Road Policing Unit, said: “Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the deceased at this very difficult time.

“I would ask anyone who saw the vehicles immediately prior to the crash to come forward. I would also ask anyone with dash-cam footage who was in the area around the time of the crash to check their footage and provide anything relevant to us as soon as possible.

“A number of vehicles had passed the crash site before emergency services arrived and I would urge them to get in touch with anything useful.

“Those with information should contact Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident number 1362 of July 19.”
