A group of police officers are to raise funds to recognise a charity's work at the scene of the Clutha Vaults helicopter crash.

The 11 officers will get on their marks for a fundraising run in Edinburgh to recognise The Salvation Army's work at the scene of the tragedy which left 10 people dead when a police helicopter crashed into the busy bar's roof in November last year.

They will compete in this Saturday's Great Winter Run to thank the church and charity for providing food, drink and support to emergency workers.

PC Craig Cameron, who is helping organise the fundraising event, said: "This tragic incident has had a profound impact on Greater Glasgow Division and the rest of the force.

"A number of people in the division said they would like to raise money for the voluntary groups that supported the emergency services at the scene."

A main appeal fund has amassed more than £220,000 worth of donations.
