The Scottish, Union and EU flags are all flying at half mast outside the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh as a mark of respect to the victims of the helicopter crash in Glasgow.
Presiding Officer Tricia Marwick sent her sympathy on behalf of the Scottish Parliament to all those affected: "This is a truly tragic day. My thoughts and prayers are with those involved and with their families and friends.
"Our grateful thanks go to the emergency services from all over Scotland for their efforts and to the people of Glasgow who, with no thought for themselves, helped many to safety and comfort," she said.
