The wreckage of the three-tonne Eurocopter was removed in a painstaking operation which allowed emergency services to begin searching the area inside the bar.

Nine bodies have been recovered following the crash.

Three people on board the helicopter died when it landed on the Clutha Vaults in Glasgow as it returned from a police operation on Friday night. Six people inside the pub were killed.

The footage was filmed by Strathclyde University's Digital Journalism masters student Luciano Graca, who was in a flat high above the site of the crash.
