The event, which saw 62 tractor drivers meander through Stebbing and Finchingfield on a 25-mile route, raised money for the Essex and Herts Air Ambulance.

Organiser, Mac Beanland says the event had beat the total raised last year, some £7,500.

Mr Beanland, who co-ordinated the event with Dick Hughes and David Hunt, said: "We think Essex and Herts Air Ambulance is an excellent charity for rural people to support because these day its such a job for ambulances to get to us. The air ambulance is a great thing."

Many villagers emerged from their houses to support the parade.

Mr Beanland added: "We tried to drive as much as we could on byways and private land, with the owner's permission, because we only travel at 12 miles per hour."
