We've nothing on Local Talk yet so posting here for traffic.

My lot have only just finished our calls. It'll be a hectic night no doubt but if you can just give a nod here.

Can't believe this. My heart is breaking.

I was in my office five minutes from George Square when it happened, I had no idea until my auntie texted to ask if I was okay. It's just so awful.

Just horrific. Are you home now?

Not sure how many people know me here but this is a good idea. There's a thread in chat too. Heartbroken for our lovely city but especially those families

Yes also check on your family and friends if you're further afield. There's so little news atm.

Also post if you need anything logistical.

We left the office 20 minutes early as there was only two of us in and my colleague wasn't sure how busy the roads would be. She dropped me at the station and I got home on the train with no issues.

My husband walked past where the bin lorry crashed about 20mins before it happened as he was on his way back to his office after doing some last minute Christmas shopping. Makes you think. Prayers for all involved
