VINTAGE tractors honoured a keen enthusiast at his funeral.

Hundreds attended the final farewell to Wilfred Bown, 53, of Ashover, who was known as ‘The Dancing Digger Man’ for his work entertaining at shows around the country.

His coffin was carried on a trailer pulled by a tractor, followed by another 21 vehicles through Brackenfield to the village’s church on Friday morning.
