Gillian, 52, of Edinburgh, was among six killed by Harry Clarke's truck in 2014.

The family of one of the victims of the Glasgow bin lorry crash have agreed to a compensation deal, it has been reported.

She and her daughter Lucy, 24, had been out shopping when Gillian was hit by the 26 ton lorry driven by Harry Clarke as Lucy stood just inches away.

During a fatal accident inquiry, it was revealed Clarke had previously collapsed at the wheel while working as a driver for First Bus in April 2010.

Robyn - the eldest daughter of tragic Gillian, 52, from Mortonhall, had claimed against the local authority on the grounds of "vicarious liability" - where someone is held responsible for the actions or omissions of another person.

A spokesman for lawyers Digby Brown, which represents the family of Ms Ewing, said the family can now look to rebuild their lives.

"This has been a life-changing and traumatic three years for the family".

'Now at least they can hopefully start looking to the future and rebuilding their lives'.

"Our thoughts remain with with the bereaved families and those who were injured".

Jacqueline Morton, 51, Stephenie Tait, 29, both from Glasgow, Erin McQuade, 18, her grandparents Jack Sweeney, 68, and his 69-year-old wife Lorraine, from Dumbarton also died in the accident.
