Cllr John Blair said: “This is desperately sad news. I would like to offer my condolences to the family and friends of this man.
“We must do more to improve road safety to prevent any more lives being lost in the future. One life lost on the road will always be one too many.
“This death just again shows the dangers that all road users face when out on the road. I would urge everybody to take care when out on the roads.”
