Tributes have poured in for a Rangers fan who was found dead on the Edinburgh city bypass.

The body of Craig Bruce, from Bilston, Midlothian, was found on the central reservation of the A720 between the Sheriffhall Roundabout and the Gilmerton Junction at around 8.20am on Thursday.

Messages of condolence have since covered the 37-year-old's Facebook page which shows him donning a Rangers top in photos.

Officers investigating the circumstances surrounding his death believe a white and black Fiat Ducato van, travelling westwards from Sheriffhall Roundabout, was involved in a collision and that this van was then overtaken by two HGVs before the Straiton junction.

They are urging the drivers of the two HGVs, or anyone who saw a white and black Fiat Ducato van travelling in the area at around 1am, to contact police.
