A young woman who was found dead in a Scots field was killed in a ‘tragic’ farming accident, it has emerged. 

We told last night how police raced to a field next to the A947, near Turriff, Aberdeenshire just before 4pm yesterday after they were made aware of an “incident”. 

The 21-year-old woman was pronounced dead at the scene.

Roads were locked down for hours as cops investigated with drivers diverted down more minor rural roads.

Exact details of how she died are still not clear.

But a source said she had been killed in an agricultural accident.

On social media pals of the woman have been saying she died in a farming incident.
