MAN died while making his way to bakery shift.

A DUNFERMLINE man has been killed while cycling on the notorious Grange Road between the city and Rosyth.

Brian Taylor (29) was heading south when he was involved in a collision with a car travelling in the opposite direction, at around 1am on Saturday.

It is believed he was heading to work at the new Stephen's bakery at Primrose Lane, Rosyth.

The driver of the silver Rover escaped with minor injuries, while Mr Taylor was pronounced dead at the scene.

A report is to be submitted to the procurator fiscal in Dunfermline.

A police spokesman has made an appeal for witnesses to come forward.

He added, "Investigation into the accident is still under way and any person with any knowledge of this road crash or who may have been travelling on Grange Road around 1am and saw either a cyclist or silver Rover are asked to call Fife police on 01592 251111 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."

There have been concerns about road safety on Grange Road for a number of years.

Fife Council had once considered closing the road and making it into a cycleway, but that proposal was dropped.
