THE condition of a 14-year-old girl seriously injured in the bin lorry crash in Glasgow is improving, according to doctors.

The girl, one of four people who remain in hospital, was yesterday said to be “stable” at Glasgow Royal Infirmary, where two other women injured in the crash were also being treated.

The 57-year-old man who was driving the lorry was also in a stable condition in the city’s Western Infirmary.

Prayers were said at Christmas morning church services across Scotland for the six people who died and ten who were injured in the crash on Monday afternoon.

Kelvin Holdsworth, of St Mary’s Cathedral in Glasgow, said: “It is significant that all the services that we’ve had this week have had increased numbers. People have been saying that they want to come together to pray and stand in solidarity with those who grieve and those who are traumatised.”

Christmas lights across the country were turned off on Christmas Eve after 72,000 people signed up to a Facebook campaign asking people to hold a two-minute silence at 9pm to reflect on the tragedy.
