The cause of a quad bike crash that killed an Orkney farmer remains unexplained, a sheriff has determined during a Fatal Accident Inquiry.

Arnold Mathers died at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary following a fall from the Suzuki Quad Runner 250 which overturned.

He suffered extensive respiratory injuries on the morning of July 7 2020 at his Tormiston Farm near the village of Stenness.

The 53-year-old, who worked on the farm since the age of 16, passed away the next month on August 22.

A probe into the father-of-three’s accidental death was mandatory because Mr Mathers lost his life at his place of work.
