However they wish to express their sincere gratitude to everyone who tried to help Mr Kerr after the incident.

Sergeant David Marr, from Forth Valley’s road policing unit, said: “I have to echo the sentiments of Graham’s family and praise the efforts of motorists who stopped and performed CPR before the arrival of emergency services, including those who had the presence of mind to collect a defibrillator from a church in Alva.

“Enquiries into the cause of this collision are ongoing and I am continuing to appeal for assistance from any witnesses who may have seen it take place, or passing motorists around the given time who have dash-cam footage we could review.”

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident number 4761 from Saturday, September 28.
