A cab driver offered free lifts to anyone affected by the Glasgow bin lorry crash this evening that tragically killed six people and injured ten more.

The council vehicle crashed into a building in George Square at around 2.30pm this afternoon, where hundreds of people were out doing some last minute Christmas shopping.

Horrific accidents like this often bring out the best in some people, and it didn’t take long for local cabbie David Farrell to hit Twitter with a kind-hearted request that quickly went viral.

And while police were quick to tell him his services weren’t needed and the situation was under control, it’s kind gestures like these that stand out.

Assistant Chief Constable Wayne Mawson said about the incident:
