Glasgow Lawyers Welcome Steps Taken Towards Answers On Bin Lorry Tragedy

Crown Office Expects To Respond To Incident Report By End Of February


Specialist lawyers representing victims of the Clutha helicopter tragedy have welcomed news that the Crown Office is to respond to a police report into the devastating bin lorry crash in Glasgow’s George Square next month, after being contacted by some of those affected by the incident.

Police Scotland has confirmed it is to submit a report into the city centre incident on December 22nd, in which six people were killed and ten others injured, with the Crown Office subsequently providing details on further investigations in February.

The tragedy happened little more than a year after the city was left devastated when a police helicopter crashed into the Clutha Pub, with ten people being killed in the incident.

Now, specialist lawyers at Irwin Mitchell who are representing victims of the Clutha tragedy have welcomed the swift steps being taken to provide answers regarding how the tragedy in George Street came to occur and urged that counselling support continues to be made available to the families of those affected and those who witnessed the accident and aftermath.
