A teenager from County Durham was so determined not to miss his geography AS level exam, that he battled through the snow in the family tractor.

16-year-old Will Richardson got his tractor licence last May.

When the roads around his home in Hutton Magna were closed earlier this week, he jumped in the tractor and travelled the seven miles to school in Barnard Castle.
