Housekeeper at Cameron House hotel one of six victims of Glasgow crash

One of the victims of yesterday's bin lorry crash in Glasgow has been named as an 18-year-old housekeeper at the 128-bedroom Cameron House hotel on Loch Lomond.

Erin McQuade, 18, died in the accident alongside her grandparents, Jack and Lorraine Sweeney.

Three other people also died when the lorry, operated by Glasgow City Council, appeared to lose control as it travelled along Queen Street and the side of George Square, before it crashed into the Millennium hotel, near the entrance to Queen Street station.

A statement from the management team at Cameron House praised McQuade for being "one of our brightest and most dedicated" members of the housekeeping team, adding: "We want to offer our deepest condolences and sympathies to the family of Erin and to all those who have been affected by the tragic events at George Square yesterday."

Cameron House belonged to the De Vere Group until it was sold to the owner of QHotels last month.
