A man who died in a car crash just minutes after a mum and her daughter were knifed to death has been named locally as Steven Robertson.

Police said three people died following a "series of incidents" in Kilmarnock on Thursday, February 5, including a mum and daughter.

Officers were called to three separate incidents, believed to be linked, including the fatal stabbing of a young woman.

Two victims have already been named as NHS worker Emma Robertson Coupland and her daughter Nicole Anderson, and the third is believed to be Mr Robertson.

Steven Robertson is understood to be the estranged husband of tragic hospital worker Emma, Daily Record reports.

Police confirmed a 39-year-old woman was found injured in the car park of Crosshouse Hospital at about 7.45pm.

The hospital was locked down by armed officers for more than three hours with dozens of emergency services rushing to the scene, but tragically Emma died.

It's understood she had been attacked at her work moments before takeaway worker Nicole was stabbed two miles away.

Specialist forensic teams were today seen scouring the wreckage of the vehicle, which collided with a tree.

Tributes to Emma and Nicole have been flooding in across social media, with one relative writing: "She was the most loving caring person in this world, and never had a smile off her face! You're gonna be one missed girl Nicole.

A friend replied: "Nicole was a great girl and she loved you and the wee man to bits. She will be sorely missed."

In a tribute to Emma, one of her colleagues said: "Heartbroken to hear of the tragic news last night and was hoping I would wake this morning and it wouldn't be true.

"One of the most genuine and caring people I've had the pleasure of working and being friends with."
