A family tribute has been paid to a "wonderful" woman who died in an Aberdeenshire crash.

Margaret Laing, 79, lived near the scene of Monday's crash on the B977 Dyce to Fintray road.

Her son, Alan Laing, said: "She was a wonderful mother, grandmother, aunt and friend."

He said his mother had devoted her life to caring for other people and was full-time carer for her husband.

Mr Laing explained: "She grew up in the Inverurie area before training as a nurse and working at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary and Aberdeen Children's Hospital.

"We are all absolutely devastated by her death. She will be sadly missed by all who knew her."

A 50-year-old man has appeared in court charged with causing death by dangerous driving in connection with the crash.

Edward Shaw, from Inverurie, was also charged with drink-driving.
