The driver of a bin lorry that careered out of control and crashed, killing six people in Glasgow has been arrested on a driving offence, STV News report.

It is alleged that Harry Clarke, 58, got behind the wheel of his car on 20th September without a driving licence.

The DVLA withdrew Mr Clarke's license and banned him from driving HGVs for 10 years.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: "A 58-year-old man was arrested in connection with alleged road traffic offences.

"A report will be sent to the procurator fiscal."

A fatal accident inquiry into the crash on 22nd December last year has heard Mr Clarke blacked out at the wheel while driving his bin lorry moments before the fatal crash.

The Glasgow bin lorry crash driver was accused of telling "a pack of lies" about his medical history.

Dorothy Bain QC, acting for relatives of victim Jacqueline Morton, accused Harry Clarke of deliberately misleading doctors by telling them he was safe to drive.

At a fatal accident inquiry, the 58 year old was also asked to imagine his own daughter had been killed.

"What would you hope those who might have some information about it would do at that public inquiry?" he was asked, but Mr Clarke refused to answer.

Ms Bain accused the council worker of lacking the "decency" to think of anyone but himself.

The mother of one of the Glasgow bin lorry crash victims stormed out of court this morning as the driver repeatedly refused to answer questions.

Harry Clarke is giving evidence for the second day at a fatal accident inquiry into the deaths of six people three days before Christmas last year.

Mr Clarke refused to answer a number of questions about his medical history.

Previously, the inquiry has heard that Mr Clarke has a history of dizzy spells and fainting which he failed to disclose to the DVLA and on job application forms. During the fatal incident, he slumped at the wheel of the truck as he drove through the city centre, causing it to veer out of control.
