Christmas lights switched off for Glasgow lorry crash victims

Thousands of people have switched off their Christmas lights as a mark of respect for the victims of the Glasgow bin lorry tragedy.

Around 72,000 people signed up to a Facebook page asking the public to turn off their decorations at 9pm and to hold a two-minute silence.

Six people were killed and 10 more injured when a lorry lost control and ploughed into pedestrians in the city's Queen Street and George Square on Monday.

Earlier, the Archbishop of Glasgow described how he cried with a woman who witnessed the death of her teenage daughter and both of her parents.

A 14-year-old girl remains in a ''serious but stable'' condition at Glasgow Royal Infirmary, one of five patients still in hospital.

Three women aged 18, 49 and 64 and a 57-year-old man - thought to be the driver - are all said to be in a stable condition.
