A statement issued on behalf of his family read: "Billy Peterkin, a well-loved and respected Glasgow businessman, was killed in a road accident last night in Puerto Banus, Marbella.

"The incident took place as he was crossing a busy road to return to his hotel.

A Foreign Office spokesman said: "We were made aware of the death of a British national in Spain on 3 May.

"We are providing consular assistance."

Mr Peterkin was engaged to be married to fiancée Emma Gallagher.

He had one daughter.
