Hundreds of mourners have attended the funeral of a student who died after a 4x4 car mounted a kerb in Glasgow.

Mhairi Convy, 18, from Lennoxtown, East Dunbartonshire, was with Laura Stewart, 20, when the Range Rover struck them in North Hanover Street on 17 December.

Both teenagers, who attended Glasgow College of Commerce, died in hospital.

Ms Convy's funeral was held in Dalnottar Crematorium, Clydebank. Ms Stewart's funeral was held in her home town of Cumbernauld on Wednesday.

Among the 400 mourners at Dalnottar Crematorium was 36-year-old Mark Hopwood, who was also injured after being struck by the vehicle.

He arrived with his arm in a sling and balanced on crutches.

The mourners lined the path to the crematorium before filing in for the funeral service followed by Ms Convy's coffin.

The 50-year-old male driver of the Range Rover was also injured in the crash and is still believed to be in hospital.

Strathclyde Police are investigating the incident.

Ms Stewart's funeral was held at Our Lady and St Helen's Parish Church in Cumbernauld, North Lanarkshire.
