The funeral of a teenage farmer who died in crash has been held, with tractors playing a large part in the ceremony.

William Sangster, 19, from Auchnagatt, was a passenger in a car which crashed near Mintlaw last month.

Friends were told that they could wear boiler suits and boots if they wished, due to the teenager's love of farming.

The coffin was carried behind a tractor and followed by other tractors.

Relatives had said farming was "what he lived for".
