HELICOPTER CRASH UPDATE - 8 Confirmed Dead, Scotlands Deputy F.M. Give Statement


Eight people are now known to have died after a police helicopter crashed into a busy pub in Glasgow last night.

The three occupants of the aircraft - two police officers and a civilian pilot - were among those killed, Police Scotland said.

Five other people lost their lives in the Clutha bar after the helicopter came through the roof of the lively city nightspot.

The pub had been packed with more than 100 people watching a band when the crash happened at 10.25pm.

Police say a rescue and recovery operation - described as "very sensitive and complex" - is continuing at the premises - suggesting people may still be trapped in the building.

A major investigation is under way by police along with the Air Accident Investigation Branch and fourteen people remain seriously injured in hospitals in Glasgow.
