    I am hearing eyewitnesses reports at the moment, which are quite traumatic.


    'Several people have been killed and a number of others injured after an out-of-control bin lorry crashed into pedestrians in central Glasgow.

    The council vehicle then crashed into the Millennium Hotel, near Queen Street station in George Square, at 14:30.

    Eyewitnesses described emergency services battling to save the lives of injured people on the street.....'

    An emergency number has been issued for people worried their relatives may have been involved. For people within the UK it is 01786 289 070

    Anyone outside the UK will need to add the 44 country code.

    (number reported on BBC Radio)

    DM - lots of eyewitness statements and as usual lots of photos and a map
    Scary how far the wagon got before it hit a wall.

    Police have just confirmed officially there are six fatalities. I've seen reports of maybe seven seriously injured, but really not sure.

    From your link:

    'Shopper Melanie Greig told Sky News: 'The lorry just lost control, it just went along the pavement knocking people down like pinballs. There was a baby in a buggy, there were two little kids....

    Police were unable to say if any children were among the casualties, but a spokesman said there had been families in the area at the time.'

    I have just read a tweet suggesting 3 children died.

    I've also just realised how close this is to the Clutha Bar which had the helicopter tragedy before Xmas last year. Terrible.

    Thanks for all your condolences and updates this is a terrible tragedy and so close to home. You just think it could have been you, a relative or friend. One minute you are enjoying Christmas shopping and the next you are dead through no fault of your own.

    R.I.P to all who have died my thoughts and prayers are with their families. I will keep praying for the injured including the lorry driver who will be dealing with a lot in the time ahead.

    Such a tragic event. My thoughts are with everyone touched by this story. For anyone looking at the pictures, I can't help but think this could have been so much worse, if the truck had landed in George Square or hit the Millennium hotel with more force, doesn't really bare thinking about.
    I'l be close to the crash scene today as I am off to the Blood Donation Centre. I was already booked in for today, makes it all the more important that I go.

    Lorry Crash: Three Victims From One Family

    Three of the six victims killed when a bin lorry careered out of control through Glasgow were an elderly couple and their granddaughter.

    Jack Sweeney, his wife Lorraine, and Erin McQuade, understood to be in her teens, died on Monday after the council vehicle drove through a street full of Christmas shoppers.



    Heartbreaking
