Scottish police say at least one person has died from the crash of a police helicopter onto a crowded Glasgow pub.      

Chief constable Stephen House says the number of fatalities is expected to rise.   

He told reporters Saturday that 32 people were taken to hospitals after the crash on the roof of The Clutha pub in central Glasgow.     

House says specialist search and rescue teams are working to make sure everyone is recovered from the scene.      

Scotland's leader Alex Salmond called it a ``black day'' for the nation.
