The Leader of Glasgow City Council, Cllr Gordon Matheson, said: “Those who are already suffering physically and emotionally need time to recover and to grieve. Money will be very far from their thoughts, but Glasgow will not allow their suffering to be compounded by financial plight in their hour of need.

“There will be people who are unable to work, or who face a lengthy road to recovery. Families face uncertain times ahead without loved ones.

“We can and will help them in the days, weeks and months ahead – and we know many of our fellow Glaswegians will also want to lend their support.”
