The family of a teenage cyclist killed in a road crash said he was a “wonderful boy” who will never be forgotten.

Relatives paid tribute to 18-year-old Iain Wightman, who died in a collision with a Land Rover on a rural road on the outskirts of Edinburgh on Monday.

Mr Wightman, from the West Lothian area, wanted to train to be an Olympic cyclist and was a great rugby player, his family said.

A statement issued by them via police said: “Iain was a wonderful, wonderful boy, much-loved and missed by his brother Colin, sister Katie and mum and dad.

“He is a great loss in our lives and will never be forgotten by those that knew him, and we wish he was back with us.”

The accident happened at around 10.30am on Monday.

Iain was involved in a collision with a silver Land Rover Discovery at the Burnshot Road junction of Standing-stane Road between Dalmeny and Kirkliston.

The Land Rover Discovery was travelling from Kirkliston.
