A woman survived the Glasgow lorry crash which killed her daughter and parents because she went to use a cashpoint seconds before the accident happened.

Jacqueline McQuade stepped out of the path of the lorry to withdraw cash, only to turn round and find two generations of her family had been hit by the vehicle.

McQuade heard a bang and ran over to where her daughter Erin and parents Jack and Lorraine Sweeney had been crushed to death.

Erin, 18, was a student at Glasgow University studying English literature, while Jack Sweeney was a former president of Bramalea Celtic supporters' club in Canada. He and wife Lorraine were childhood sweet-hearts.

Relative John Sweeney paid tribute to the couple on Facebook.

"No words can describe the pain. R.I.P. Jack, Lorraine and Erin," he wrote. "Thoughts and prayers go out to the other families that lost loved ones as well."

Also killed by the van were Stephenie Tait, 29, Jacqueline Morton, 51, and Gillian Ewing, 52,

Tait was a primary school teacher. Headteacher Catherine Gallagher hailed her work at St Philomena's Primary, saying: "Stephenie was an excellent young teacher, dedicated to the children. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends at this time.

"We will be supporting colleagues in every way possible. Stephenie made a wonderful contribution to the life of St Philomena's. She will be sadly missed by both pupils and staff."

Ten people were seriously injured when the bin lorry careered out of control on Queen Street. The driver of the lorry was reportedly seen slumped over the steering wheel of the vehicle as the crash happened. He remains in hospital.
