Funeral for Glasgow crash victims

The funeral has been held for three members of the same family who died in the Glasgow bin lorry crash on 22 December.

More than 1,000 people attended the service at St Patrick’s RC Church in Dumbarton.

Jack and Lorraine Sweeney and their 18-year-old granddaughter Erin McQuade died after being struck by a collection vehicle which crashed in the city centre.

Three other people lost their lives and 10 others were injured, including the driver.

Glasgow City Council launched an appeal fund for people affected by the incident with a donation of £20,000, while £10,000 has been given by the Lord Provost’s Goodwill Fund.

In another incident in Scotland during the holiday period, a man died on New Year’s Day after a collision with a collection vehicle in Inverness. The lorry operator was Northern Recycling Solutions, based in Alness.
