A family today paid tribute to a 17-year-old boy who died in a North-east car crash.
Benjamin Waterfield, from the Aberdeen area, was killed in the accident on the A947 Dyce to Newmachar road at the weekend.
Today his family released a statement, saying: “We are devastated and heartbroken at the loss of Benjamin, a much-loved son, brother and grandson.
“We would like to thank all the emergency workers involved in the inquiry, and would particularly like to thank the staff at the Intensive Care Unit who fought just as hard as Benjamin did.
“We would request that our family be left as we try to come to terms with our loss. As a family we are thinking of everyone involved in the accident.”
The fatal incident involving a blue Seat Leon and a silver Citroen C2 happened at about 2.15am on Saturday.
Sergeant Neil Morrison of Road Policing said: “Our sympathy is with Benjamin’s family at this sad time.”
