A court bid to bring a rare private prosecution against Glasgow bin lorry crash driver Harry Clarke has been rejected by senior judges.

The 59-year-old blacked out behind the wheel of the vehicle in December 2014, killing six people.

The families of three victims took their case for Mr Clarke to be put on trial to the Appeal Court in Edinburgh earlier this year, following a controversial Crown Office decision not to prosecute him.

However judges Lady Dorrian, Lord Menzies and Lord Drummond Young dismissed their case on Friday.
