A large gathering observed a minute’s silence on Saturday evening at the scene of the Clutha helicopter crash in Glasgow a year after the tragedy.

Emergency service workers and people touched by the tragedy were joined by members of the public to remember those killed when a police helicopter crashed onto the roof of the pub on November 29 last year.

Dozens of floral tributes and candles were placed outside the Clutha to mark the anniversary.

Earlier, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon joined a crowd of hundreds at a memorial service at Glasgow cathedral.

Following the service Ms Sturgeon said Glasgow will never forget the tragedy.

She said: “I think it gave Glasgow the opportunity to say to all those affected by this dreadful tragedy that they are still in our thoughts, that we haven’t forgotten, and we want to show them our love and support at what will be an incredibly difficult time for them.”

On Friday night a benefit concert was held in Glasgow’s Barrowlands venue in aid of the Clutha Trust, established in the aftermath of the crash to help disadvantaged young people.
