Tribute has been paid to a "loving" grandmother killed in a crash in Aberdeenshire which left several relatives injured.

Retired teacher Muriel Duffy, 73, of Aberdeen, died after the two-car crash on the A90 near Blackdog on Sunday.

Six others, including her daughter and two grand-daughters, were injured.

A family spokesperson said: "Muriel was a loving wife, mother and grandmother who will be greatly missed. We are all shocked by her sudden loss which has left a huge hole."

Mrs Duffy had specialised in learning support at Northfield Academy.

'Great comfort'

The family tribute added: "We have been left with only the happiest of memories of a loving, hard-working person who made a huge difference to many people's lives.

"We've been heartened by the messages of support from friends and family which have been of great comfort at this difficult time."

She was married to emeritus Prof John Duffy, of the University of Aberdeen, and had two children and three grandchildren.

Three men travelling in the other car involved were also injured and were taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.

The road was closed for several hours while investigations were carried out.
