Turns out, I know the band that were playing and a group of my friends were there! Glad to hear though, they're all ok if not a little shocked.

This will be the third one. The last one in the pic below crash landed in a field in Ayrshire in the 1990's and was written off with no major injuries though.  

In the meantime lets hold back on the black humor as there is likely to be tragic consequences yet to unfold.

I'm sure everyone's thoughts are with the victims of this accident.

I don't know if anyone else here is affected, but here is the new contact number:

Quote:
GLASGOW INCIDENT CASUALTY BUREAU NUMBER GOES LIVE

A telephone number for members of the public who are concerned about relatives who may have been involved in the Glasgow helicopter crash has been established.

The Police Scotland Casualty Bureau number 0800 092 0410 is now live.

Callers should ONLY contact the Casualty Bureau number if they have concerns for relatives who may have been in the Clutha Vaults pub or surrounding area at the time of the incident.

Thread tidied up guys.

Most of us know the pub on a Friday and it could have been one of us in there.


I know it is a sensitive subject but there is a report button on the forum if you think something is out of order.

It might take a wee bit of time for someone to get it but it saves all the arguing.

Let us just hope everyone is safe although watching the news it seems unlikely.
