A man accused of causing the death of a vet on Mull has won his fight to be released on bail.
Thomas Wainwright has been charged with death by dangerous driving after a crash near Craignure on October 28.
The 26-year-old is also accused of failing to provide a sample of breath.
He made no plea or declaration during his private hearings at Paisley Sheriff Court, and was remanded in custody.
But Wainwright, who lives in France, has now successfully appealed the decision to be remanded and has been released on bail until his next appearance.
His solicitor Edward Thornton said he had surrendered his passport.
The case comes after vet Theresa Wade died after her work van collided head-on with a Maserati on the A849 Craignure to Fishnish road.
The 29-year-old had been travelling home from work at the island’s only veterinary practice at Fishnish to the Kinloch Hotel at Pennyghael, where she lived with her partner Charles Pease, the owner of the hotel.
After her death, her family described her as “one of life’s bright stars” and said she was delighted to have secured a job back on Mull after a spell working in Fort William.
Mr Pease said: “Theresa was one of life’s bright stars that burned out all too soon.
“I feel absolutely beside myself because she was a young woman with great potential who was an exemplar for all that Mull, Oban, Argyll and even Scotland could present to the world.”
