Glasgow crash prosecution families: 'Law has fatally let our girls down'

Families bereaved by two Glasgow road death incidents have been told they cannot launch private prosecutions.

The Sweeney and McQuade families had been seeking a Bill of Criminal Letters to allow them to bring charges over the Glasgow 2014 bin lorry crash, which killed six people.

Judges also ruled against a similar bid from the relatives of Laura Stewart and Mhairi Convy who were killed in a crash in 2010.

Laura's aunt, Cate Cairney, said the "law has fatally let our girls down", while Alan Convy, Mhairi's father called for the law to be changed.
