Caroline Rennie Wiki – Caroline Rennie Bio
Caroline Rennie died in a tragic agricultural accident on her family’s farm. She is thought to have got into difficulty while working with farm machinery on Saturday afternoon in a field near her hometown of Turriff, Aberdeenshire.
She was 21 years old.
Emergency services went to the field just off the A947 Aberdeen to Banff road after being alerted to a serious ‘incident’, but she was pronounced dead at the scene.
Photographs from the scene showed a blue tent at the back of what appears to be a John Deere tractor.
Police cordoned off the field, which had several farming vehicles in, and were pictured guarding the area.
She died after an incident in a field off the A947 near Turriff at around 3.45 pm on Saturday.
Police are investigating the death alongside the Health and Safety Executive.
Miss Rennie, who came from one of Aberdeenshire’s well-known farming families, was the second daughter of Andrew and Annette Rennie, of Gask Farm, near Turriff, and the youngest of a close-knit group of 12 cousins.
In a statement released last night, family members said: ‘We are devastated by the loss of Caroline, who was so full of life, full of fun and much loved.
‘She was a great friend to everyone who knew her and will be much missed.’
Her death has devastated the area’s farming and local communities, who described her as a ‘passionate’ and ‘dynamic’ farmer and an ‘active, popular and much-loved member of Turriff Young Farmers’ Club.
In a statement issued through police, Ms. Rennie’s family said: “We are devastated by the loss of Caroline who was so full of life, full of fun, and much loved. She was a great friend to everyone who knew her and will be much missed.”
Detective Inspector John Lumsden said: “Our thoughts are very much with Caroline’s family at what is a very difficult time for all who knew her and officers are supporting her family.
“There are no suspicious circumstances and, as with all sudden deaths, a report will be sent to the Procurator Fiscal.”
Last night, Lorna Paterson, North-east regional manager for the National Farmers Union Scotland, called Miss Rennie’s death a ‘horrendously tragic situation’.
She said: ‘[Miss Rennie’s] passion for our industry was second to none. She had such a bright future ahead and was a real entrepreneurial and dynamic female within the farming locality.
‘This horrendously tragic situation is the cruelest of the cruel and everyone in farming is shocked.’
Banff and Buchan MP, David Duguid, said: ‘This tragic accident has shocked the local community here in Turriff. My thoughts are with the family and friends of the young woman involved, at what must be a very difficult time.’
