Funeral For Family Killed By Bin Lorry

The funeral of a teenager and her grandparents who were killed in the Glasgow bin lorry crash takes place today.

Erin McQuade's mother Jacqueline had gone to take money out a cash machine, but witnessed her daughter and parents being hit.

A requiem mass will be led by Archbishop Philip Tartaglia at St Patrick’s RC Church in Dumbarton before the family's laid to rest at Dumbarton Cemetery.

The services will be held in private.

The 57-year-old lorry driver is still in hospital, along with a 14-year-old girl and a 64-year-old woman.

An 18-year-old woman was released on Tuesday.

An investigation into the cause of the crash is under way.

The lorry driver appeared to lose control near to Royal Exchange Square before careering north along Queen Street, bystanders said.

The lorry finally came to a stop when it collided with the Millennium Hotel, at the side entrance to Queen Street train station on the corner of George Square.
