The Clutha to reopen

The Clutha is to open its doors tonight after a helicopter crash more than 18 months ago.

Ten people, including seven customers and three police helicopter crew, died in the tragedy on November 29, 2013, and the pub has remained closed since.

A new bar has been constructed in the former smoking area and a mural, featuring famous faces with links to the pub and local area such as Billy Connolly and Stan Laurel, has been created on the exterior walls. The interior of the old pub remains sealed off following the disaster.

Families of the victims, survivors and members of the emergency services have all been invited to a private event before the official opening, and First Minister Nicola Sturgeon is also expected to attend.

The pub will be open to the public from 8pm and local group The Black Triangles will play a set from 9.30pm.
