With a heavy heart, Glasgow remembers the victims of a Christmas tragedy on its sixth anniversary. 

On December 22, 2014, six people lost their lives and 15 people were injured after a bin lorry driver Harry Clarke blacked out and crashed in a city centre lane. 

The grief felt by Glasgow is embedded in the memory of every resident. 

Glasgow Times:

Erin McQuade, 18, and her grandparents Jack Sweeney, 68, and Lorraine Sweeney, 69, from Dumbarton; Stephenie Tait, 29, and Jacqueline Morton, 51, both from Glasgow; and Gillian Ewing, 52, from Edinburgh, died in the crash.

Glasgow Times:

The lorry had travelled along the pavement in Queen Street before crashing into the side of the Millennium Hotel in George Square.

An official inquiry blamed him for not revealing his medical history, including an episode where he was said to have fainted while working in a previous job as a bus driver.

The probe heard that it took just 19 seconds for the tragedy to unfold.

Six years later tributes have once again been paid across the city.
