HUNDREDS OF West Fifers turned out to pay their respects as the cortege containing Queen Elizabeth II's coffin made its way through West Fife yesterday (Sunday).

Close to 4pm, the cortege reached West Fife, having travelled down the M90 motorway from Perth, before then reaching the Queensferry Crossing, which Her Majesty opened in September 2017.

It then made its way to Edinburgh, and the Palace of Holyroodhouse, where the Queen's coffin now rests.

Hundreds of West Fife families came out to pay their respects on an overcast Sunday afternoon, with vantage points overlooking the morotway across the area crammed with wellwishers.

Many stood in the central reservation of the M90 motorway as the cortege passed the turn-offs for Dunfermline, Rosyth and Inverkeithing, keen to witness a moment of history and show their appreciation of Britain's longest-serving monarch.

The cortege had left Balmoral Castle, where the Queen died on Thursday, around 10am before travelling to Aberdeen, Dundee and Perth, before then heading down the M90 and towards the Queensferry Crossing. 

There will be more photographs, and tributes to Her Majesty, in Thursday's Dunfermline Press.
