A man has died after being hit by a car in Burra late last night.

The pedestrian was struck and killed by the vehicle in Hamnavoe shortly before 2am this morning.

Police say the B9074 at Hamnavoe is currently restricted to traffic with one lane open.

Restrictions are also in place at the Tingwall valley, with access allowed only for properties in the area.

Police have requested any witnesses to contact them on 101 or, on Crimestoppers, on 0800 555 111.

A motorist has been taken into custody and is expected to appear in court tomorrow.
