Three people have died after a police helicopter crashed into a busy pub in Glasgow, the BBC understands.
Police Scotland have confirmed one death but said they expected the final number of fatalities would be higher. A rescue operation is continuing.
The crash happened at The Clutha in Stockwell Street at 22:25 on Friday.
There were three people on board the helicopter - two officers and a civilian pilot. Thirty-two people have been taken to local hospitals.

I was so sorry to hear of this early this morning.

There are a lot of Helicopters up there these days. I have at least 3 a day pass over my house.

Sad day for Glasgow and Scotland.

Very sad indeed
