Glasgow City Council leader Gordon Matheson has offered his thoughts and prayers to the families of victims involved in an accident involving a collection vehicle.
A bin lorry with council livery left the road and crashed into the front of a hotel in the city centre on 22 December, hitting a number of pedestrians. Six people were killed and several more injured.
Matheson said: “My priority now is to do what we can to support everyone involved, and to give every assistance to the police and other emergency services as they investigate this incident and care for those who are injured.”
Glasgow’s waste and recycling service is run in-house by the council.
Police Scotland have declared the event a major incident and cordoned off the street where it happened for forensic analysis.
