The family of a woman who died following a road traffic collision in Stow a fortnight ago has paid tribute to their loving mum, gran and great granny.

​Ninety-five-year-old Dorothea Logan from Edinburgh was a passenger in an Audi A6 which was in collision with a VW Polo on the A7, one mile north of Stow, on the afternoon of Tuesday, July 14. She passed away at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary the following day.

​The 67-year-old female driver of the Polo also sadly died, at the scene of the collision.​ Her family has asked that her details are not issued while they come to terms with their loss.

Mrs Logan’s family issued a statement which stated: “Dot Logan enjoyed a long, happy and fulfilled life, and the family would wish people to remember that, rather than the circumstances of her death ... the family are deeply grateful to all the emergency services and to the professional and committed staff of the ERI for their outstanding care and compassion.”

Police ​Sergeant Brian Smith of the Road Policing Unit said: “Our sincere condolences go to both families and friends at this sad time.

​“Enquiries into the full circumstances surrounding this collision are still ongoing, and anyone with information which can help with our enquiries is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101.”

z The week before the crash, local MP Calum Kerr attended his first A7 Action Group meeting.

Mr Kerr, the new co-chair of the group, said: “We are working on an action plan highlighting the priority upgrades required, to present to Government.

“I would welcome ideas and suggestions on areas you believe need work or improved.”
