The 79-year-old man died after being hit by an Audi in Glasgow Road, at the junction with Belmont Avenue, in Uddingston, near Glasgow, the force said.

A 28-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of traffic offences and released pending further inquiries, it added.

Officers have launched a search for witnesses to the crash, which happened at about 11am on Wednesday May 17.
