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.

A Muslim taxi driver who travelled from Yorkshire to Glasgow to murder a shopkeeper for allegedly claiming he was a prophet will be sentenced today.
Tanveer Ahmed, 32, confronted 40-year-old Asad Shah at his store in Glasgow's Shawlands area and then stabbed him multiple times.
Ahmed claimed to have been offended by clips Shah had posted online which he said "disrespected the Prophet Muhammad".
Shah's brother and a shop assistant tried to fend Ahmed off as he launched his attack on the popular businessman, described by locals as a "pillar of the community".
Judge Lady Rae told Ahmed ahead of sentencing: "There's no justification whatsoever for what you did."
