Detective Chief Inspector John Anderson from Fife CID said: “I would once again like to extend my deepest sympathies to the family of Scott Walker and to thank all of those who came forward to provide us with information.

“While an arrest has been made, we remain keen to hear from any members of the public who still believe they can assist with this investigation.

“In particular, we’d like to speak with the occupants of a dark Audi car, possibly a Q3 or Q5, with roof bars, which was travelling towards Elie from St Monans around the time of the collision. We believe these individuals may have witnessed what happened, but I’d like to stress they were in no way involved in this incident.

“If you believe you have any relevant information, but have yet to contact us, please do so immediately.”
