The A915 Standing Stane Road, which connects Leven and Kirkcaldy, was shut by police after the incident around 5.20pm on Thursday.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: "We were called to a report of a two-car crash on the Standing Stane Road around 5.20pm on Thursday, 1 April, 2021. There were no reports of injuries.

"A 27-year-old man was issued with a fixed penalty notice for road traffic offences. The road was closed until 7.10pm to allow for vehicle recovery."

The Standing Stane Road is a known accident blackspot but it is hoped new measures to install electronic warning signs at the junction to the Checkbar Road and the entrance to Wellsgreen golf range, introduced by this summer, will make a difference.
