A MAN has been charged after a crash in Moray earlier this year left a 76-year-old woman dead.

Great-grandmother Katrina Smith, from the Burghead area, died following the collision on the A96 Forres to Nairn road, near Brodie, at 5.55am on Sunday, April 28.

Police Scotland said a 26-year-old man had been charged in connection with the crash. A report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.

Sergeant Scott Deans, from the North East Road Policing team, said: "Our thoughts remain with Katrina's family following her tragic death. I would like to thank all those who came forward and helped our enquiries."

The speed limit through Brodie was extended on both sides of the village in January 2016.

This followed a long running campaign to force traffic to slow down after a fatality and several near misses in the area.
