A fatal lorry crash in Glasgow that has killed six people was not down to terrorism, police say.

Several people died after a waste disposal lorry careered on to the pavement in Queen Street and ploughed into pedestrians who were out Christmas shopping.

Witnesses described the scene of devastation as being like "something of a horror movie," as relatives of the dead grieved over bodies in the street.

Police Scotland said there was no evidence of a terrorism motive for the attack, which has caused such carnage.

A spokesman said: "While those investigations are continuing, we can confirm that this is not a terrorism-related incident."

The police also confirmed the death toll had reached six by 6pm. A spokesman said: "We can confirm that six people have been fatally injured as a result. A further update on casualties will be issued in due course."
