Police investigating a New Year's Day fire which killed a man

:01:16.:01:19.

and left his girlfriend critically injured say they want

:01:20.:01:21.

to trace the occupants of a car which was seen nearby.

:01:22.:01:24.

23-year-old Cameron Logan died in the fire which police

:01:25.:01:28.

say was started deliberately at the family home in Milngavie.

:01:29.:01:32.

Huw Williams is there for us this evening.

:01:33.:01:37.

Huw. Jackie, police have been giving us

:01:38.:01:44.

details of the fire here at the Logan family home in Milngavie and

:01:45.:01:48.

of their investigation to try and establish who started it

:01:49.:01:52.

deliberately and why. In particular, they have revealed details of that

:01:53.:01:55.

dark coloured car which you mentioned, seen parked in a nearby

:01:56.:01:59.

lay-by around the time the fire was started. They are keen to trace it

:02:00.:02:04.

and we have seen for ourselves evidence today that officers on the

:02:05.:02:07.

ground are widening the area that they are searching.

:02:08.:02:11.

Teams of police officers searching hedgerows, Ben Zand pavements along

:02:12.:02:16.

Teams of police officers searching the road where, half a mile or so

:02:17.:02:22.

from the scene of the fire, and detectives have revealed they are

:02:23.:02:23.

from the scene of the fire, and keen to trace a dark coloured car

:02:24.:02:30.

seen parked in a lay-by on this stretch of road at about the time

:02:31.:02:34.

the fire was started. Unusual was that the engine was running, the

:02:35.:02:37.

passenger door was opening. There could be a reasonable explanation

:02:38.:02:43.

why that vehicle was there, I am appealing for the owner of the

:02:44.:02:46.

vehicle or any occupants to come forward and tell us why it was

:02:47.:02:53.

there. Likewise, if you know who's car that was, please get in touch

:02:54.:02:58.

with us, give us that information. The fire which killed Cameron Logan

:02:59.:03:03.

has left his partner, Rebecca Williams, in a critical condition in

:03:04.:03:07.

a spittle. Her boss says the thoughts of everyone at the company

:03:08.:03:12.

with Rebecca and her family. Meanwhile, friends and investigators

:03:13.:03:14.

are continuing to work at the scene of the fire. They described as a

:03:15.:03:19.

complex crime scene, with officers also checking local CCTV and talking

:03:20.:03:23.

to neighbours. Detectives say the fire was started deliberately and

:03:24.:03:27.

was a targeted attack, but they will not say whether they think Cameron

:03:28.:03:31.

Logan was the intended victim. We are satisfied that it was not a

:03:32.:03:37.

wrong house that was picked. Given that we know that this is a

:03:38.:03:43.

deliberate fire, we are satisfied it was targeted. However, we are still

:03:44.:03:45.

working to try and establish who the intended victim more victims were.

:03:46.:03:49.

Police say they are doing everything they can to catch whoever was

:03:50.:03:52.

responsible and will be keeping a high-profile presence in the area.

:03:53.:03:59.

Police said today that whoever was responsible for what they called

:04:00.:04:03.

this despicable crime did not deserve to be protected. They have

:04:04.:04:07.

called for anyone who has any information or suspicions about

:04:08.:04:10.

whoever may have been involved to come forward with any information

:04:11.:04:14.

that they have. Jackie. Thank you very much for that update,

:04:15.:04:16.

phew Williams. Rescuers say a couple forced

:04:17.:04:20.

to spend a night in the Cairngorms were caught out when a planned

:04:21.:04:21.

hillwalk took longer than expected. They sheltered with their dog

:04:22.:04:27.

in survival bags in whiteout conditions before being found

:04:28.:04:29.

by a mountain rescue team. This was the moment members of the

:04:30.:04:42.

Cairngorm mountain rescue team came across Bob and Cathy Elmer, 4000

:04:43.:04:47.

feet up on a snow laden plateau. They had been hill walking in

:04:48.:04:51.

Scotland for 25 years, but they admit that despite their experience

:04:52.:04:53.

and equipment, they were unprepared admit that despite their experience

:04:54.:04:57.

for the conditions they were to face when they ventured out on the first

:04:58.:04:58.

for the conditions they were to face day of the year. We knew it was

:04:59.:05:03.

wintertime, we probably did not quite judge really how long it was

:05:04.:05:07.

going to take, the journey. It became an issue when I got two

:05:08.:05:13.

thirds of the way down, Cathy was struggling to keep up with me. So

:05:14.:05:18.

then I knew that it was going to take a lot longer than what I had

:05:19.:05:22.

anticipated. With their dog in tow, they found themselves in deep snow,

:05:23.:05:26.

in darkness, and with the batteries in their head torches having given

:05:27.:05:31.

out. The snow was at times up to our waste, so we decided that we

:05:32.:05:35.

couldn't go on any further, because we didn't really know where we were

:05:36.:05:40.

going. You could not see a hand in front of your face. So we decided to

:05:41.:05:44.

get the so Bible bags out and get down for the night in them. Mountain

:05:45.:05:48.

rescuers say that despite temperatures of minus six and high

:05:49.:05:52.

winds, their decision to stay put on a mountain and wait for daylight

:05:53.:05:58.

probably saved their lives. Whilst a night out on the Cairngorm plateau

:05:59.:06:03.

in Arctic conditions isn't that attractive, it probably was the

:06:04.:06:05.

decision that saved their lives. And the pair say that being prepared is

:06:06.:06:14.

key in the mountains. You can go up Ben Nevis on a summer's day and be

:06:15.:06:19.

knee-high in snow, you know? We have been there, we have done it. So

:06:20.:06:24.

yeah, you have to go equipped, you have to have the right kit, even if

:06:25.:06:29.

the sun is shining. We are now well into the winter climbing season, and

:06:30.:06:33.

while Scottish weather can be and with a double at the best of times,

:06:34.:06:37.

that is especially the case of here. That can be unpredictable. The hills

:06:38.:06:48.

is make sure you have the equipment, the skills, and always be prepared

:06:49.:06:51.

to turn back. Craig Anderson, Reporting Scotland, Cairngorm.

:06:52.:06:55.

with their arch-rivals, the SNP, to help defeat

:06:56.:06:57.

but nationalists say their door is always open to a deal.

:06:58.:07:02.

This comes as a Labour-leaning think-tank said the party was too

:07:03.:07:05.

Our political correspondent Andrew Kerr reports.

:07:06.:07:16.

Remember this man? It will be 20 years in May since Tony Blair swept

:07:17.:07:22.

to power, but now a think tank closely linked with the new labour

:07:23.:07:26.

movement warns that the party is too weak to win and too strong to be

:07:27.:07:31.

displaced as the UK's main party of opposition. Pollsters agree with

:07:32.:07:38.

that analysis. The position in the polls seems to be even weaker than

:07:39.:07:43.

it was back in 2015, and to that extent at least we are asking the

:07:44.:07:47.

question, how badly could Labour do? Not really whether it has any

:07:48.:07:52.

prospect of winning the election. So the idea from the Fabian Society is

:07:53.:07:55.

for leader Jeremy Corbyn to aim to win enough MPs to form a governing

:07:56.:08:01.

partnership with other parties. If Labour is able to gain some more

:08:02.:08:05.

MPs, but not a majority, it will have to think about working with the

:08:06.:08:10.

Lib Dems and even the SNP, because those parties would rather see a

:08:11.:08:15.

partnership between themselves that another Conservative government.

:08:16.:08:18.

Winning more seats might be a distant goal for one former Labour

:08:19.:08:24.

MP who was ousted in 2015, while a partnership with the SNP is ruled

:08:25.:08:28.

out. This is the party who hates the Labour Party, who views the

:08:29.:08:32.

destruction of the Labour Party as they way of gaining independence. We

:08:33.:08:36.

are a unified Labour Party that wants to heal the divide in the

:08:37.:08:39.

country, bring people together, and that message of solidarity needs to

:08:40.:08:43.

take old right across the United Kingdom. The Conservatives used this

:08:44.:08:48.

to warn about the SNP calling the tune in the 2015 election.

:08:49.:08:53.

Nationalists insist they are still ready and waiting - if Labour wants

:08:54.:08:58.

to come forward. As far as the SNP is concerned, that door is open, but

:08:59.:09:03.

it is a decision that Labour need to make, decide whether staying on

:09:04.:09:06.

their own is more important than forming progressive alliances to

:09:07.:09:10.

oppose the right wing Tory government that we see just now in

:09:11.:09:14.

Westminster. Labour says it comes down to a straight choice for the

:09:15.:09:19.

SNP, back either a Labour government or a Tory one. But as the Labour

:09:20.:09:25.

leaning think tank said, and polling evidence indicates, Labour in power

:09:26.:09:29.

is still a very distant prospect. Andrew Kerr, Reporting Scotland,

:09:30.:09:31.

Glasgow. Police Scotland paid out record

:09:32.:09:34.

levels of compensation last year, according to figures obtained

:09:35.:09:36.

through a freedom of In the year to the end

:09:37.:09:38.

of last March, the force spent ?1.27 million

:09:39.:09:41.

in damages claims. I'm joined by our home affairs

:09:42.:09:43.

correspondent Reevel Alderson. Reevel, why are the police

:09:44.:09:45.

paying out compensation? Well, these figures were obtained by

:09:46.:09:57.

the Scottish Conservatives, as you say, under freedom of information,

:09:58.:10:00.

and the pay-outs were for a variety of reasons, but the information

:10:01.:10:05.

released does not allow us to know what individual cases were. But we

:10:06.:10:09.

do know from the past that they can be for serious incidents, like a

:10:10.:10:13.

police car hitting a pedestrian, or a parked car. They can also be for a

:10:14.:10:19.

civil legal matter, such as unlawful detention, things like this --

:10:20.:10:26.

losing a person's properties when they are in custody. And they have

:10:27.:10:29.

to pay out for employer's liability they are in custody. And they have

:10:30.:10:33.

when a worker is injured at work, for instance. In total, in the year

:10:34.:10:42.

2015-16, they paid out just over ?1.25 million, ?100,000 more than

:10:43.:10:43.

the previous 12 months, and the average claim was ?2500 per

:10:44.:10:50.

claimant. Now, the Tories say that these figures are worrying, they are

:10:51.:10:54.

except of course that a large organisation like Police Scotland

:10:55.:10:57.

will have to make compensation claims, but they say pay-outs are

:10:58.:11:01.

worrying because of the pressures that Police Scotland is under. It is

:11:02.:11:06.

facing a black hole of something like ?70 million in this financial

:11:07.:11:11.

year alone. What is not clear is how many of these claims actually go

:11:12.:11:16.

back to that year, 2015-16, because you can make a claim for up to three

:11:17.:11:20.

years after the incident. And of course it takes a number of years

:11:21.:11:23.

possibly before they are settled, and cash is paid out. What the force

:11:24.:11:31.

itself says is that it does have money in its contingency reserves

:11:32.:11:33.

for exactly this sort of claim, because it knows it will have to

:11:34.:11:37.

meet compensation claims, and it points out that the figure it has

:11:38.:11:40.

paid out is a very small proportion of its overall ?1.1 billion

:11:41.:11:45.

spending. Thank you very much, Reevel.

:11:46.:11:47.

Nearly one year on, residents in a flood hit area of Aberdeenshire

:11:48.:11:50.

say they're living in fear it could happen again.

:11:51.:11:52.

Almost 100 residents in Inverurie and Port Elphinstone

:11:53.:11:54.

were evacuated when the River Don burst its banks last January.

:11:55.:11:57.

Rebecca Curran has been to meet some of them.

:11:58.:12:05.

For residence in Inverurie and Port Elphinstone, it was an unforgettable

:12:06.:12:13.

start to 2016. Heavy rain caused the river Don to burst its banks. Roads

:12:14.:12:18.

turned to rivers. Families were forced to flee their homes. The

:12:19.:12:24.

water was getting higher and higher, so we just had to get out. Kevin

:12:25.:12:29.

Adams family moved back home in so we just had to get out. Kevin

:12:30.:12:33.

July, but the past year has been hard. Even once we got back, it took

:12:34.:12:39.

a while to settle back here, especially my son, because every

:12:40.:12:43.

tiny bit of rain, he just went, it is going to flood again. There is no

:12:44.:12:51.

point talking to him, you are better leaving him to cry and come back

:12:52.:13:04.

when he is calmer. Vice Angela's home was badly hit. Her friend was

:13:05.:13:11.

trapped inside, surrounded by rising water. He stayed because the water

:13:12.:13:17.

was not in the house at this point, but he ended up having to evacuate

:13:18.:13:22.

as well, you cannot stay in that. This is where the water came from, a

:13:23.:13:27.

bank has now been installed to protect the area from a future

:13:28.:13:31.

flood. Some fear it is not enough. That is all they have really done. I

:13:32.:13:39.

mean, I think they need to be doing more, especially around by the canal

:13:40.:13:42.

and stuff. Quite a lot of land was taken away, it could easily happen

:13:43.:13:48.

again. I have no qualms about that. As rebuilding work here continues,

:13:49.:13:54.

Aberdeenshire Council say a study to identify further flood prevention

:13:55.:13:58.

options is under way. It is expected to be completed in summer 2019.

:13:59.:14:02.

You're watching BBC Reporting Scotland.

:14:03.:14:05.

Police investigating a fatal New Year's Day fire say

:14:06.:14:10.

the occupants of a car seen nearby may have vital evidence.

:14:11.:14:14.

And still to come, the efforts to give the oldest surviving music

:14:15.:14:17.

He's the man who helped bring the famous penguins to Edinburgh Zoo.

:14:18.:14:31.

Polar adventurer Bill Mitchell is one of the last surviving members

:14:32.:14:34.

of a team that set sail for Antarctica nearly 60 years ago.

:14:35.:14:37.

at life in one of the world's most hostile environments.

:14:38.:14:48.

It was actually an advert in the papers saying there was an

:14:49.:14:52.

expedition going to the Antarctic, and they were looking for some

:14:53.:14:56.

people do go on the expedition. So I thought, I quite fancy that! I got a

:14:57.:15:01.

letter saying I had to go down to thought, I quite fancy that! I got a

:15:02.:15:07.

Southampton and join the ship, the Royal Research Ship Shackleton. I

:15:08.:15:13.

started getting introduced to people you were well-known people, people

:15:14.:15:17.

who had been in previous expeditions, Vivian Fuchs was to be

:15:18.:15:21.

the leader of our expedition, and suddenly I realised, you know, this

:15:22.:15:25.

is a lot more than I expected. My first job was to go to a place in

:15:26.:15:31.

the south Orkney Islands called a Sydney island, and that is when I

:15:32.:15:35.

got this message about penguins. Could I collect 100 chinstrap

:15:36.:15:40.

penguins and 100 Adeli penguins they Could I collect 100 chinstrap

:15:41.:15:50.

were for Edinburgh Zoo. I was delighted when they took them away,

:15:51.:15:55.

because I had been looking after 200 penguins and feeding them strips of

:15:56.:15:58.

fish and also lots of bits. It is a lot of work. Of course, my

:15:59.:16:05.

experience of husky dogs was nil. And there was a little dog called

:16:06.:16:10.

Tim, and I started training him to be a lead dog, and he turned out to

:16:11.:16:16.

be a first-class lead dog. The sledge has no nails or screws in it,

:16:17.:16:19.

it is held together with Rawhide answering, believe it or not! --

:16:20.:16:26.

rawhide answering. Travelling most of the time would mean running

:16:27.:16:30.

alongside the sledge, rather than being on the sledge itself. On a

:16:31.:16:34.

good day, you could probably do about 25 miles.

:16:35.:16:39.

It was presented to me by the Queenen in 1965. It was a nice

:16:40.:16:46.

experience going to Buckingham Palace and meeting the Queen and

:16:47.:16:51.

getting presented with the medal. Memories there of Bill Mitchell.

:16:52.:16:56.

World Number One, Sir Andy Murray, has started the New Year

:16:57.:17:00.

just the way he wanted - with a new career best.

:17:01.:17:02.

He extended his unbeaten run of matches to 25 with a win.

:17:03.:17:05.

There are worst ways to see in the new year. Drenched in Doha sunshine,

:17:06.:17:11.

Andy Murray first footed his old new year. Drenched in Doha sunshine,

:17:12.:17:16.

Nemesis, Novak Djokovic. Great stuff. Well done. You played well.

:17:17.:17:22.

We played many big matches over the years and slams. Played at the

:17:23.:17:25.

Olympics and, you know, obviously the match at the end of last year

:17:26.:17:30.

for Number One ranking. We competed many timeses against each other for

:17:31.:17:34.

some of the biggest prizes. Yeah, hopefully it will be the same again

:17:35.:17:39.

this year. A new year, a new challenge for Andy Murray, who has

:17:40.:17:42.

never started a season as World Number One. He certainly began like

:17:43.:17:47.

the best player on the planet. Wrapping up the first set 6-0

:17:48.:17:49.

against Jeremy Chardy in 20 minutes. Wrapping up the first set 6-0

:17:50.:17:53.

The second set at least was a contest. Every time Chardy posed a

:17:54.:17:59.

problem, Murray had an answer. COMMENTATOR: That's why he's the

:18:00.:18:03.

world's best player. The new Knight of the Realm had to go into battle,

:18:04.:18:07.

but won the match in a second set tie-break to claim his 25th

:18:08.:18:11.

consecutive win. A fine start to 2017 in which there are four key

:18:12.:18:15.

targets. A week on Monday, the first Grand Slam of the new season will be

:18:16.:18:19.

underway in Melbourne, where Murray has contested and lost five finals.

:18:20.:18:23.

His next big goal will be to peak for the French Open at the end of

:18:24.:18:26.

May. Help was a hes Leesing finalist in Paris last year. The defence of

he beats his next opponent. A look at other stories

:18:59.:19:03.

from across the country. The number of oil and gas companies

:19:04.:19:07.

were none back in 2012. Edinburgh Airport has

:19:18.:19:19.

announced plans to further expand its retail offering this

:19:20.:19:21.

year, leading to about 100 new jobs. The news comes as the airport

continues to redevelop There's an increased confidence

in business in Scotland, according and it's higher here

than in England and Wales. A survey for the Bank of Scotland

:19:30.:19:33.

shows a sharp rise in business confidence

:19:34.:19:36.
