A farming family is today celebrating after their incredible collection of almost 100 vintage tractors sold for a staggering £1million.<br />
<br />
Father and son duo Ian and Martin Liddell began hoarding the agricultural vehicles at their arable farm in the 1980s.<br />
<br />
Their fleet of tractors was so large that they had to be stored in three barns.<br />
<br />
The prized collection sparked a worldwide bidding war when it was sold with auctioneers Cheffins, of Cambridge, after the family decided to part with the tractors to free up space on their Essex farm to pursue other projects.
