Dear Lord Provost,
My wife and I wanted to send our most heartfelt thoughts and sympathy to the families of those who were lost or injured in Friday's truly shocking helicopter accident in Glasgow.
Words can seem wholly inadequate in such circumstances, but in offering every possible healing thought to those who survived, we also wanted to pay tribute to the emergency services and their exemplary response.
Glasgow has had to endure a tragic episode but, knowing the city and its people as we do, we have every confidence that it will find the necessary strength to recover.
With our prayers and kindest wishes, The Duke and Duchess of Rothesay
