A man has been arrested after a car being pursued by police struck a pedestrian who later died.

The vehicle had initially failed to stop for police in the Northfield area of Aberdeen, on Monday, August 16.

Officers then pursued the car, before it was involved in a collision with the pedestrian on Great Northern Road, shortly after 2pm.

The pedestrian, a 48-year-old man, was taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary with serious injuries, but died just over three weeks later on September 11.

Police Scotland confirmed they have arrested a 28-year-old man in connection with the incident.

He is due to appear at Aberdeen Sheriff Court on Tuesday.

A report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal, officers have said.

Police say that as is standard procedure, the matter has also been referred to the Police Investigations & Review Commissioner (PIRC) with respect to any prior police involvement.
