Police are seeking witnesses after a tractor was stolen in Aberdeenshire.

The John Deere vehicle, registration SV14 XMZ, is valued at a mid five-figure sum of money.

It was taken from the Raemoir/Westhill area between 9pm on Sunday, October 9, and 7am the following day. It is believed the tractor would have been loaded onto another vehicle.

Constable Alan Denny said: "The farming community is a tight knit one and I would ask that anyone who saw anything unusual or suspicious at the time mentioned or in the previous days contact police.

"It is likely that the tractor was loaded onto another vehicle and transported out of the area. Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101."
