The driver of a council bin lorry that killed six people in Glasgow city centre has left hospital.

The 57-year-old man had been treated at the city's Western Infirmary since the tragedy on Monday 22 December.

A 14-year-old girl, who was among 10 people injured in the tragedy, has also been discharged.

A 64-year-old woman remains in a stable condition at the city's Royal Infirmary. A police report into the crash is due out at the end of January.

Police investigation

Police Scotland said on Tuesday that officers investigating the crash would complete a formal private report by the end of the month.

Justice Secretary Michael Matheson said he expected the Crown Office to outline a timescale for any further investigation by the end of February.

It is for the Lord Advocate, Frank Mulholland, to decide if a Fatal Accident Inquiry (FAI) will be held.

There has been no suggestion at this stage of criminal charges against anyone involved in the accident.
