Police Scotland are working with the Health and Safety Executive following the deaths of twin boys in Fife over the weekend.

Two-year-old Shaun Scott and his twin brother Rhys drowned in a fish pond at a home in Dalgety Bay on Saturday morning.

A Police Scotland spokesman said: “We are continuing with our enquiries into the tragic deaths of Rhys and Shaun on March 12.

“In this instance, we have consulted with the Health and Safety Executive as part of our on-going investigation.

“We are continuing to support the family with a specialist family liaison officer and enquiries are ongoing.”

On Sunday, the boys’ parents paid tribute to their ‘miracle babies’, commenting in a statement released through Police Scotland: “Both boys were long awaited little soldiers who were full of love, happiness, fun and cheek.

“Individually and together they have touched the lives of everyone they met.

“We along with our family and friends are still in shock and devastated at such a tragic loss from such a ‘freak’ accident. They have been taken from us far too early and will be forever missed and loved.”
