Police community 'feel loss' of Glasgow crash victims

The impact of the Glasgow helicopter tragedy will be felt by all the extended police family, the manager of the Police Roll of Honour Trust has said, after it was revealed that eight people had died in the incident.

Steve Lloyd of the trust, which remembers officers who lost their lives in the line of duty, said:

This is such a terrible loss of life. We know that it is so sad to lose a loved one at any time of year but I'm sure many of us will feel the loss is even harder to bear at a time when so many of us are preparing for Christmas with our loved ones.

No amount of sympathy can ease that loss.
