The family of the 17-year-old male who died following a crash on the A90 south of Fraserburgh released a statement remembering their brother and son.

Jordan Gibbin’s parents, Carol and Kevin, and his brother Connor have paid tribute to the boy who will “leave a huge hole in so many people’s lives.”

The family statement reads: “Jordan attended Crimond Primary School then Stuartfield Primary then Mintlaw Academy.

“However Jordan had little interest in school, and could not wait to leave and join his Dad in the family business.

“He was at his happiest driving a digger or up to his elbows in grease fixing lorries and diggers.

“Jordan came from a large family and will be sorely missed by all.

“He along with his brother Connor were part of a huge close circle of friends and Jordan was the life and soul of many nights out.

“He liked nothing more than playing tricks on them.”

“Jordan loved fishing at Pitfour Lake and Waulkmill Fishery.

“He was also a good shot at clay pigeon shooting, and was very competitive with his Dad. He also loved his quad bikes, starting off with a 110CC and finished with a 750CC.

“Jordan was a member of Strichen Young Farmers’ Club and recently won a model tractor for being the closest to pricing a new tractor.

“Jordan will leave a huge hole in so many people’s lives, and will be missed by everyone who knew him. We would ask that we are left in private as we try to come to terms with our sad loss.”
