Bin Lorry Driver Out Of Hospital

The driver of a runaway bin lorry which killed six people has been discharged from hospital.

The 57-year-old council employee left hospital on Monday after two weeks of treatment.

A 14-year-old girl and woman aged 64 remain under doctors' care following the tragedy in Glasgow three days before Christmas.

Police are investigating what caused the driver to lose control of the refuse truck and plough into shoppers on Queen Street before crashing into the side of a hotel in George Square.

A full report into the incident on December 22 will be submitted to the Crown Office by the end of the month.

Justice Secretary Michael Matheson said yesterday: ''I have been advised that the Crown will consider that report, and by the end of February will provide further details as to the timescale for any further investigations that may be required.''
