VILLAGERS in Elsdon have paid tribute to a “vibrant and enthusiastic” member of their community who was killed in a quad biking accident.
Liz McIntosh (64) died last Friday when her vehicle overturned on a road at her 700 acre sheep and cattle farm, West Todholes, which she ran with the help of a part-time shepherd.
The quad bike had overturned, trapping her underneath. She was pronounced dead at the scene and an inquest was opened and adjourned by North Northumberland coroner, Tony Brown on Tuesday.

AT a public meeting in Wylam Institute it was decided to split the remaining money in the village's peace celebration fund between the village schools and a planned war memorial to the Fallen.
A brass plaque bearing the names of 19 former students who died in the Great War was to be erected in the Wylam Council Schools at a cost of £20 and £30 was to be donated to the war memorial fund.
