A woman killed in a three-vehicle crash in Aberdeenshire last week has been named by police.

Andrewina Tait, 63, from Inverness, died after the accident on the A96 near Huntly at 1100 GMT on Thursday.

A statement released by her family said the "sudden and tragic loss" had been extremely hard to take.

Accident investigations are still taking place and officers appealed for any witnesses to the crash to contact the police.

Ms Tait's family said: "Andrewina was a wonderful sister and aunt to many and the whole family have been hit extremely hard by this sudden and tragic loss.

"Andrewina worked as a nurse and dedicated her time to helping others for many years before retiring. We cannot begin to express how we are feeling at this time."

A Grampian Police spokesman said: "Our thoughts are clearly with Ms Tait's family at this extremely difficult time."
