A biker who died in a one-vehicle road accident on a “notorious” north-east road has been named by police.
Michael Reid, 29, from Peterhead, was driving on the A98 Banff to Portsoy road when the accident happened at the Banff RAF Memorial lay-by, near Boyndie, just before 2pm yesterday.
His blue Suzuki was the only vehicle involved.
Sergeant David Pirie said: “First and foremost our thoughts are with Mr Reid’s family and friends at this very sad time.
“Inquiries into the incident are still on-going and I would appeal to anyone who was in the area at the time and has not yet come forward with information to contact Police on 101.”
