A DUMBARTON poet has written a tribute to those who lost their lives in the Clutha bar tragedy.

Rolf Campbell will read the piece at a special evening of poetry and song at the town's Community Hub in the Artizan Shopping Centre tonight.

The poem, entitled 'St Andrew's Eve', was previously read by singer Mary Kathleen Burke at a charity event for the victims of the disaster.

Ten people lost their lives when a helicopter crashed through the roof of the crowded pub, in Stockwell Street, on November 29, last year.

Rolf, 49, will be joined by singers Anne Donald and Pauline Bradley at the Dumbarton event.

He said: "The Clutha was so well known to everyone connected with the music scene in the West of Scotland, and it was such a shock and a tragedy when the crash happened.

"They had a book of my work in the gallery behind the bar there - it's probably still there in the wreckage."
