Since lockdown began 103 days ago, there have been daily updates of the grim statistic that is the coronavirus death toll.

The death of Scotland's first COVID-19 victim was recorded on March 13, and the first reported death in Ayrshire was on March 17. Since then more than 4,000 people have been taken by the virus.

NHS Ayrshire and Arran has seen 293 people tragically die having contracted coronavirus.

132 of those deaths were of people in care homes across.

141 people were in hospitals at the time of their passing, and 20 were at home on in a non-institutional setting.

In East Ayrshire, 75 people have died with COVID-19, in North Ayrshire 106 have died and in South Ayrshire 112 have died.

Behind these statistics were real people who left behind grieving families and friends.

Ryan Storrie was a father-of-two in Scotland to celebrate his 40th birthday when he became ill.

He had travelled with his wife Hilary and their two children from their home in Dubai to Ryan's hometown of Ardrossan.

Ryan didn't think his asthma was enough to make the virus lethal and so didn't want to trouble the NHS or risk spreading it to those in hospital.

His wife found him dead in their hotel bedroom on March 30.
