A woman who was killed in a collision with a car in West Lothian has been named.

Gillian Mitchell, 65, from Kirknewton, was hit by a car on the A71 near Wilkieston on December 16 at around 7.05am.

The 20-year-old driver of the blue Ford Fiesta was not injured.

Police have asked a motorcyclist who was in the area and might have witnessed the collision to come forward as well as anyone else who can help.

Sergeant Peter Houston said: “I am appealing for anyone who may have been on the A71 around the time of the incident to contact us.

“I would ask motorists with dashcam devices to check their footage as it could provide us with significant details which would assist our investigation.
