One of two teenagers who died in a crash involving an e-bike and four cars has been named.

Marcus Beck, 17, was pronounced dead at the scene following the collision on the A941 Elgin to Lossiemouth road on Monday evening.

A 16-year-old boy was also killed in the incident, while the rider of the bike, aged 14, is in a stable condition in hospital.

Police have launched an investigation into the crash.

Marcus' family said they were in shock following his death and added that he would be "very much missed".

"Marcus was a young man who loved going out and about with his mates," a statement released through Police Scotland read.

"He will be missed so very much by all of his family and his friends.

"We cannot begin to explain what a shock this has been for everyone and we would like time to be able to come to terms with what has happened."
