The driver of a bin lorry who collapsed at the wheel before the out-of-control vehicle killed six people in the centre of Glasgow is receiving counselling following the tragic accident, it has emerged.

Harry Clarke, 58, an experienced HGV driver, passed the regular medical exam needed to keep his driving licence two years before the crash on December 22.

Three other crew members in the lorry are understood to have been in the seats behind the driver but were unable to reach the handbrake after he “passed out”, apparently with his foot on the accelerator.

The vehicle careered along a pavement across George Square before hitting the Millennium Hotel on December 22. The city centre was crowded with Christmas shoppers at the time.

Six people, including three members of the same family, died in the incident and 10 were injured.
