Several people have been killed after a bin lorry crashed into pedestrians in George Square in central Glasgow. Police have not confirmed reports of up to six fatalities but described the crash, outside Queen Street station at about 14:30, as "very serious". Eyewitnesses reported the bin lorry moving at speed up Queen Street before hearing a bang as it crashed into the Millennium Hotel. Several people were seen lying on the ground following the crash.
this will be no consolation at all to the families of those who died....brings to mind now when my sister started having driving lesson in her late teens...all of sudden she had a couple of epilectic fits and they stopped soon after but she ditched the idea of driving..that was the sensible thing to do even though in her mid 50s she has never had a fit since..
That was the sensible thing to do Lyn. A secretary where I worked suddenly had an epileptic fit at work. She had been driving and her colleagues eventually persuaded her tp tell the DVLA, but it took a lot of effort to persuade her

it is mike and although my sister only ever had a couple of these attacks she felt it was just a risk not worth taking...people should take a long hard look at just what may happen if they do..it may have robbed her of driving but not of any lives lost which is something she would rather live with
