The driver of a bin lorry that careered out of control and crashed, killing six people in Glasgow has been arrested on a driving offence, STV News report.

It is alleged that Harry Clarke, 58, got behind the wheel of his car on 20th September without a driving licence.

The DVLA withdrew Mr Clarke's license and banned him from driving HGVs for 10 years.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: "A 58-year-old man was arrested in connection with alleged road traffic offences.

"A report will be sent to the procurator fiscal."

A fatal accident inquiry into the crash on 22nd December last year has heard Mr Clarke blacked out at the wheel while driving his bin lorry moments before the fatal crash.
