Hundreds pay respects to Glasgow crash victim Arthur

Mourners have gathered in Paisley to pay their last respects to Gary Arthur, the first of the Glasgow helicpoter crash victims who was publicly named.

The humanist service at Woodside Crematorium was estimated to have been attended by 400 to 500 people, many of whom had to stand outside.

A floral wreath spelling out the word "Gary" lay by the coffin in the hearse.

In a statement released ahead of the funeral, Mr Arthur's family said: "We loved him dearly and always will, we will miss him so much.

"We will continue to make him proud. He always tried to do his best for us and to be there for us. He was the best dad and it's devastating that our dad has been taken from us in such a tragic way."
