and on BBC One we now join the BBC's news teams where you are.

The helicopter manufacturer, Sikorsky, grounds all of its S92

:00:07.:00:10.

aircraft after an incident on a North Sea platform last month.

:00:11.:00:16.

Confusion in the Labour party over immigration with mixed messages

on the free movement of people from the EU.

:00:20.:00:25.

Families coping with the effects of Type 1 diabetes call for more

research to find a cure for the condition...

:00:30.:00:36.

It was an absolute poster because we had no history of this in our family

:00:37.:00:39.

and we knew very little about it. Also on the programme,

:00:40.:00:44.

Could a change in the format of the World Cup improve Scotland's

:00:45.:00:47.

chances of reaching And it's hoop dreams

:00:48.:00:49.

for the Glasgow Rocks basketball team as they bid for cup glory

:00:50.:00:56.

and try to inspire the young. Good evening. Offshore helicopters

:00:57.:01:21.

were grounded today after urgent safety checks were ordered. It

:01:22.:01:29.

follows an incident on a North Sea platform.

:01:30.:01:33.

Our reporter Rebecca Curran is at Aberdeen Airport

:01:34.:01:35.

The skies above the north-east have been unusually quiet as much of the

:01:36.:01:50.

helicopter fleet has remained on the ground but there's been an awful lot

:01:51.:01:53.

of work ongoing in the hangers behind me as engineers undertake

:01:54.:02:02.

mandatory safety checks. It is expected those checks will be

:02:03.:02:08.

completed by midday tomorrow. It is hoped that in the next 24 hours the

:02:09.:02:15.

aircraft will return to the skies. Going nowhere fast. Every S 92

:02:16.:02:22.

helicopter around the world spent most of today on the ground. The

:02:23.:02:29.

manufacturer issued an alert over concerns about the tail rotor

:02:30.:02:34.

following an incident in the North Sea when an estimated two

:02:35.:02:41.

experienced a technical fault. Nobody was injured but it left

:02:42.:02:48.

significant marks on the deck. Operators were told to take out

:02:49.:02:57.

immediate safety checks before the helicopters could return to service.

:02:58.:03:00.

It will cause concern given the history of helicopters. I think the

:03:01.:03:05.

delays must be accepted for what they are, precautionary measure to

:03:06.:03:12.

ensure it is safe. I'd rather put up with the delay. We've got to make

:03:13.:03:23.

sure the aircraft are safe. Oil and gas UK cannot say how many workers

:03:24.:03:27.

have been affected by the delays but have described the restrictions as a

:03:28.:03:31.

precautionary measure to ensure the safety of them workforce. The safety

:03:32.:03:40.

group met in Aberdeen and say they will keep in touch with the

:03:41.:03:44.

operators at the manufacturer for any further updates. As these safety

:03:45.:03:49.

checks have been ongoing, in the background the investigation into

:03:50.:03:53.

exactly what happened on the platform on the 20th of December is

:03:54.:04:00.

also ongoing. In the last half an hour, the Maritime and coastal

:04:01.:04:06.

organisation have issued an update. They've confirmed that they are back

:04:07.:04:12.

in operation and they say the rest of the fleet is expected to fly

:04:13.:04:13.

soon. There's confusion tonight

:04:14.:04:16.

over Labour's position In a speech this afternoon,

:04:17.:04:17.

the UK leader Jeremy Corbyn said Labour wasn't wedded

:04:18.:04:21.

to the principle of free movement But he also said he

:04:22.:04:23.

wouldn't rule it out. Our political correspondent

:04:24.:04:31.

Andrew Kerr has been It's the first day back after the

:04:32.:04:48.

break at Holyrood. Coffee counter is doing a roaring trade as people look

:04:49.:04:53.

a New Year pick me up. The Ricoh. Jeremy Corbyn is looking for a

:04:54.:05:00.

boost. He attempted relaunch with a major on Brexit. He was due to say

:05:01.:05:08.

that his party is not wedded to freedom of movement, hardening his

:05:09.:05:12.

stance, hoping to appeal to traditional Labour voters. This

:05:13.:05:16.

morning, no new restrictions on immigrants. Undercutting payment

:05:17.:05:28.

restrictions and the directive... In the speech there was a caveat. We

:05:29.:05:32.

are not wedded to free movement of the EU as a point of principle but I

:05:33.:05:37.

don't want to be misinterpreted, nor do we rule it out. So, not wedded to

:05:38.:05:47.

and not ruling it out. Jeremy Corbyn may have been hoping to make clear

:05:48.:05:56.

his stance today. As you've seen, perhaps there needs to be some more

:05:57.:06:05.

clarification. Scottish Labour are setting out their own position. We

:06:06.:06:11.

believe the freedom of movement in Scotland is good for Scotland but we

:06:12.:06:14.

understand concerns when they cannot get a house and they cannot get an

:06:15.:06:20.

appointment. The answer to that is not to blame free movement of people

:06:21.:06:29.

but to invest in public services. Opponents seized on the

:06:30.:06:39.

contradiction. Jeremy Corbyn is saying he is not sure whether he's

:06:40.:06:41.

in favour of freedom of movement or not but is in favour of the single

:06:42.:06:46.

market. You cannot be in the single market without freedom of movement.

:06:47.:06:51.

Back at the coffee shop, maybe Jeremy Corbyn is having his cake and

:06:52.:06:54.

eating it, wanting to mix it up on immigration but not change his

:06:55.:06:55.

views. Political parties should be fined

:06:56.:06:59.

if they fail to ensure just under half of their candidates at general

:07:00.:07:02.

elections are women, Less than a third of MPs

:07:03.:07:04.

are female and representation Our Political correspondent

:07:05.:07:10.

Nick Eardley reports. The Prime Minister and First

:07:11.:07:23.

Minister, two of the most important politicians and Age UK. But are

:07:24.:07:26.

there enough women in politics more generally? Kirsty Blackman was

:07:27.:07:32.

reprimanded for taking her kids to a committee meeting. It feels very

:07:33.:07:35.

male dominated. We've got that committee meeting. It feels very

:07:36.:07:41.

female as a figurehead but you don't see her kicking around the House of

:07:42.:07:44.

Commons, she's not in there with MPs most of the time. Less than a third

:07:45.:07:53.

in the House of Commons are women. The figure is slightly higher for

:07:54.:07:57.

MPs representing Scottish seats. The main parties had more men standing

:07:58.:08:05.

than women. A proportion would help improve gender balance. If there is

:08:06.:08:11.

not significant progress at the next general election, made major parties

:08:12.:08:21.

be required to have 45% of their candidates as women, then we believe

:08:22.:08:26.

there could be fines for parties. The Scottish Parliament fears only

:08:27.:08:31.

slightly better for gender balance. Campaigners said some parties have

:08:32.:08:35.

made efforts to address that what they want legislation at Holyrood as

:08:36.:08:43.

well. We only make up 35% of women MSPs and councillors and there is a

:08:44.:08:49.

long way to go. I think people see politics as guys in suits. It's not

:08:50.:08:54.

something I woman would naturally go far but personally, I would rather

:08:55.:08:59.

have got it on merit and got it because they needed a female to fill

:09:00.:09:03.

a role. That's a view shared some at Westminster. They think the best

:09:04.:09:08.

candidates should be chosen regardless of their gender. Even

:09:09.:09:19.

those who support S92 admit it won't solve the problem. But those on the

:09:20.:09:22.

committee think this is an important first step -- quotas admit it won't

:09:23.:09:25.

solve the problem. We are increasingly familiar with

:09:26.:09:34.

the problems with type two diabetes. But in Scotland we also face a major

:09:35.:09:39.

battle with Type 1 diabetes which is an auto-immune condition

:09:40.:09:43.

not caused by lifestyle factors. We have the third highest rate

:09:44.:09:45.

of the Type I in the world, and today families and people

:09:46.:09:48.

affected have been taking their case to Parliament to press for more

:09:49.:09:50.

to be done to find a cure. Here's our Health

:09:51.:09:54.

Correspondent, Lisa Summers This girl was diagnosed with type

:09:55.:09:58.

one diabetes when she was three years old. I check the CGM quite a

:09:59.:10:08.

lot to make sure my levels. Nobody in the family had any history of the

:10:09.:10:11.

disease and learning to live with it has been a roller-coaster for the

:10:12.:10:20.

family. Being that young, the insulin was too large so she was

:10:21.:10:28.

spiking. At night she is unaware so if she drops then she will not

:10:29.:10:33.

spiking. At night she is unaware so up. For two years we did not get it.

:10:34.:10:37.

Now she uses a pump and the monitor known as a CGM. It will connect to

:10:38.:10:42.

my phone so when she is at school, even though I know school take care

:10:43.:10:46.

of her, I can see what her levels are. They had to fight for it to be

:10:47.:10:51.

funded by the NHS. We would like everybody to be given access to this

:10:52.:10:56.

funded by the NHS. We would like technology, it is fantastic and I

:10:57.:10:59.

would like other parents to not go through the struggles we go through

:11:00.:11:01.

to get them. 30,000 people in through the struggles we go through

:11:02.:11:07.

Scotland have type one diabetes and the number is growing every year. It

:11:08.:11:12.

is not clear why Scotland has such a high prevalence of type one

:11:13.:11:18.

diabetes. It is up there with other North European countries. Charities

:11:19.:11:24.

believe Scotland is well placed to find a cure. We need to see some

:11:25.:11:31.

funding behind fellowships so we can attract the best researchers here.

:11:32.:11:38.

They were joined by families and people in parliament to press their

:11:39.:11:43.

case. We've put investment to help people cope with it but we will work

:11:44.:11:47.

with groups and people who have type one diabetes to make sure if there

:11:48.:11:49.

are further improvements we will see where we can make them. Technology

:11:50.:11:58.

has been vital to her quality of life. Her family hope it will not be

:11:59.:12:01.

too much longer before there's a cure.

:12:02.:12:11.

It's been just over a week since the first families

:12:12.:12:13.

received their baby boxes - the scheme where new parents receive

:12:14.:12:15.

a package of essential items from the Scottish Government.

:12:16.:12:17.

The initiative is costing six million pounds -

:12:18.:12:19.

but critics believe the money could be better targeted.

:12:20.:12:21.

Our reporter David Deldy has been finding out what parents think

:12:22.:12:24.

in one of the pilot areas for the scheme, Orkney.

:12:25.:12:27.

Little over a week old but already with plenty possessions. This baby

:12:28.:12:37.

and parents are the first to benefit from a baby box. Changing mat which

:12:38.:12:46.

is always handy. We've got clothes in all sizes, newborn, 0- three,

:12:47.:12:53.

3-6, 6-9. Over 50 items are included, from clothes to nappies

:12:54.:12:58.

and much more. We've got books, we've got a play mat. Things that he

:12:59.:13:09.

will use. And Alicia who is three and a half still loves a good toy in

:13:10.:13:14.

the bath. When this stuff has been cleared out of the box one of the

:13:15.:13:18.

main ideas is that the baby can sleep in it. But if that something

:13:19.:13:20.

main ideas is that the baby can parents in Orkney have been making

:13:21.:13:25.

use of? For this baby it is an old but it is a different story for

:13:26.:13:29.

Cameron. She slept in hers as everyday. The parents said the box

:13:30.:13:35.

itself has been handy but they won't use everything. For first-time mums

:13:36.:13:41.

there is a lot of things they will need but this is my fourth baby so

:13:42.:13:45.

there's a lot of stuff that we don't necessarily need. If they were

:13:46.:13:50.

giving it to parents that already had children they would need to have

:13:51.:13:54.

a scheme that you could return items they don't need. It is estimated it

:13:55.:13:59.

will cost ?6 million a year to run the scheme. The government say it

:14:00.:14:03.

will give every child and equal start but critics claim there are

:14:04.:14:06.

many parents who do not need this level of support. I would like to

:14:07.:14:12.

see the money targeted at those most in need. I understand the problem

:14:13.:14:17.

with stigmatising certain families but we need to be more imaginative

:14:18.:14:21.

how we deal with that, can we look at ways where accessing some kind of

:14:22.:14:25.

extra support doesn't involve lots of difficult form filling are being

:14:26.:14:31.

interrogated? What do new mums and dads think? It is for the child, not

:14:32.:14:37.

for the mums and dads, I think every child should get it.

:14:38.:14:42.

You're watching BBC Reporting Scotland.

The helicopter manufacturer, Sikorsky, grounds all of its S92

:14:46.:14:49.

aircraft after an incident on a North Sea platform last month.

:14:50.:14:56.

When Old Macdonald had a farm, I bet his cow didn't

:14:57.:15:01.

We look at the growing use of technology in agriculture.

:15:02.:15:12.

Pioneering research carried out at St Andrews University could lead

:15:13.:15:16.

to a new generation of medical devices which prevent infection

:15:17.:15:17.

It involves coating them in a powder which can be

:15:18.:15:20.

loaded with antibacterial and healing agents.

:15:21.:15:22.

Here's our science correspondent, Ken MacDonald.

:15:23.:15:28.

Sometimes trying to make you well can make you ill. Science is

:15:29.:15:36.

fighting a constant battle against healthcare acquired infections. They

:15:37.:15:42.

have a new weapon, metal organic frame works or Mofs. This is what it

:15:43.:15:46.

looks like. It's full of holes, that's a good thing. The microscopic

:15:47.:15:53.

holes can be filled with substances that fight infections. They can take

:15:54.:15:57.

a healing gas where a gas couldn't otherwise go. They are metal organic

:15:58.:16:01.

frame works. They are porous materials. You can think of them as

:16:02.:16:09.

being sponges. What I can do now, I can put inside these a gas. It's by

:16:10.:16:26.

logically active gas. We would open this valve here. It changes colour.

:16:27.:16:30.

Solid with a gas inside can fight infections in new ways. These

:16:31.:16:36.

coatings will make a huge difference to people who use medical devices

:16:37.:16:43.

which are prone to infection, healthcare acquired infections and

:16:44.:16:47.

people with chronic and slow to heal rules. The delivery from the

:16:48.:16:56.

products will reduce these infections and increase healing

:16:57.:17:00.

routes. The company has been spung out from St Andrews University. It

:17:01.:17:07.

won an award and a big new investment to take it to the next

:17:08.:17:10.

stage. W-he are the first company who used this technology in the

:17:11.:17:15.

healthcare market. We are excited about this. This has got our

:17:16.:17:21.

investors excited well. They can be loaded with pay loads to turn back

:17:22.:17:26.

the tide of healthcare acquired infections.

:17:27.:17:30.

An amateur sailor, who grew up in Scotland, has been awarded

:17:31.:17:33.

the Yachting Journalists' Association Yachtsman

:17:34.:17:34.

of the Year Award after rescuing five crew from a stricken vessel

:17:35.:17:37.

28-year-old Gavin Reid was taking part in a Round the World Yacht Race

:17:38.:17:41.

Despite having no previous sailing experience and being deaf,

:17:42.:17:45.

he swam to help rescue four crew from the vessel and a fifth

:17:46.:17:48.

who had been trapped in the rigging for nine hours.

:17:49.:18:01.

you could be looking at its effects in a whole new light

:18:02.:18:04.

when you discover cows are being given something similar.

:18:05.:18:06.

That's because their walking activity has a direct corrolation

:18:07.:18:09.

It's another example of how technology is increasingly

:18:10.:18:15.

Our rural affairs correspondent, Kevin Keane, can tell us more.

:18:16.:18:24.

After the Christmas excesses none of us wants to put on an activity

:18:25.:18:31.

monitor. This is being higher. It's a better heat. This is about more

:18:32.:18:34.

than fitness. It tells the farmer when she's ready to be artificially

:18:35.:18:39.

inseminated. A text to his mobile phone tells him when the cow is

:18:40.:18:44.

ready and how long he's got. For me, when building my c o ow numbers up,

:18:45.:18:48.

I couldn't justify to have a bull about. So this way was a lot more

:18:49.:18:53.

efficient for the way I was working things. A lot more cost effective

:18:54.:18:58.

and a better management tool. Two years on and he is less reliant on

:18:59.:19:02.

and a better management tool. Two it. The neck collars provide lots of

:19:03.:19:07.

helpful data. My activity monitor is worn around my wrist and told me I

:19:08.:19:12.

have done 3,000 steps today. With these animals, it's much more

:19:13.:19:16.

sophisticated. It's on this strapped device here, the data is contained

:19:17.:19:20.

in this and they wear it around the neck. She's actually due to be

:19:21.:19:30.

served... The technology is more widely used in the dairy sector

:19:31.:19:31.

where the animals are kept indoors widely used in the dairy sector

:19:32.:19:43.

in a controlled environment. They are like the Usain Bolt's of the cow

:19:44.:19:47.

industry. Every technology we can are like the Usain Bolt's of the cow

:19:48.:19:52.

use to maximise and Ute lice the genetic potential in these cows, the

:19:53.:19:58.

more advantage for us. The technological potential doesn't just

:19:59.:20:02.

stop at pedometers according to those promoting what is available.

:20:03.:20:09.

The temperature... Drones, satellites, virtual fencing and

:20:10.:20:12.

robots are being used to help the farmers. Not replace them. With the

:20:13.:20:18.

next generation of farmers coming along, most have a smartphone in

:20:19.:20:21.

their pocket. They are able to use apps and orbits of kit that helps

:20:22.:20:25.

them until their daily job. I think we will see a shift. There will be

:20:26.:20:29.

more of this technology used in the future. All of this is down to the

:20:30.:20:34.

bottom line, but the technology is getting cheaper and that is seeing

:20:35.:20:37.

uptake increase, albeit slowly. For Scotland football fans who dream

:20:38.:20:42.

that maybe, one day, the national team could join those

:20:43.:20:45.

greats holding the World Cup there From 2026, Fifa is to expand

:20:46.:20:48.

the finals from 32 to 48 teams. It's been welcomed by the SFA,

:20:49.:20:53.

but what effect might it have Alasdair Lamont has

:20:54.:20:56.

been finding out. At Fifa's headquarters today the

:20:57.:21:08.

first changes to the makeup of the World Cup in almost 20 years were

:21:09.:21:14.

agreed. The new format means an expansion from 32 to 48 teams. That

:21:15.:21:18.

will mean 16 Groups of three teams each. A minimum of two games per

:21:19.:21:23.

country. So what is the likelihood of one of those countries being

:21:24.:21:27.

Scotland? Well, Europe is likely to get an additional three places. That

:21:28.:21:30.

would take the total number of spots on offer to European nations to 16.

:21:31.:21:37.

Currently Scotland are ranked 33rd in Europe, which suggests it will

:21:38.:21:40.

take more than tournament expansion to lead to a World Cup return for

:21:41.:21:45.

the Scots. Nonetheless, the move has been welcomed here at Hampden. The

:21:46.:21:50.

SFA's Chief Executive For Scotland to make an impact on

:21:51.:22:05.

the world stage again, further changes appear necessary. There has

:22:06.:22:09.

been a lot of mistakes made over the years and, hopefully, now, they have

:22:10.:22:16.

a job to improve this aspect of developing the game, hopefully that

:22:17.:22:20.

will happen. I think a lot of good young players are there and they

:22:21.:22:23.

need to be brought along in the right fashion in order to develop

:22:24.:22:27.

them to the tlaefl you need for the highest level of football, which is

:22:28.:22:29.

both at World Cup and European level. Few Groups have missed that

:22:30.:22:33.

level of competition more than the Tartan Army. Do fans view this as a

:22:34.:22:40.

favourable move? On the surface, from a Scotland perspective, good

:22:41.:22:43.

news, more chance of qualifying. It comes with caveats. Those caveats

:22:44.:22:50.

are with that expansion there is potential only to travel far

:22:51.:22:55.

distance for only two games. A cost implication there for fans. The

:22:56.:22:59.

bigger picture here is that, what is going on at Fifa in terms of the

:23:00.:23:05.

politics. Critics of world football's governing body say

:23:06.:23:07.

today's decision is about power and money. Others feel tl dilutes the

:23:08.:23:14.

tournaments quality. Fifa believe it's a fairer deal for improving

:23:15.:23:20.

nations, many of whom have left Scotland in their wake.

:23:21.:23:24.

The Glasgow Rocks basketball team has reached the final

:23:25.:23:26.

of the British Cup, they play arch rivals Newcastle for

:23:27.:23:29.

But as well as excelling on the court, the Rocks are hoping

:23:30.:23:33.

to play a valuable part off the court too, helping young people

:23:34.:23:35.

Getting ready for one of the biggest games of the season. But when the

:23:36.:23:47.

day job is over, Glasgow Rocks mentor school children and

:23:48.:23:50.

vulnerable young people in themes which can be life saving. We will be

:23:51.:23:54.

here talking to you guys about healthy eating, staying away from

:23:55.:23:57.

smoking and drinking in order to become a combood athlete and also

:23:58.:24:03.

bouncing back from bad situations, all right. It can be school, home

:24:04.:24:09.

sport, I will talk anything. To you about not smoking and the effects it

:24:10.:24:13.

could have on your body from smoking. This is tar. Not a pretty

:24:14.:24:18.

sight at all. Disgusting. Terrible. Making a mistake is a bad thing true

:24:19.:24:22.

or false? Positive messages for our children. The Rocks head coach

:24:23.:24:27.

places great value on his players' work in communities. Because you

:24:28.:24:31.

learn from your Mistakes. Excellent. It's very important. I think with

:24:32.:24:33.

the amount of time our professional athletes have in a day, things like

:24:34.:24:37.

that put them in positions to be role models for these young kids. I

:24:38.:24:39.

think if you do that, that role models for these young kids. I

:24:40.:24:43.

them going in the right direction and us as an organisation as well.

:24:44.:24:47.

Who can tell me what alcohol is? Yeah. A drug. Yeah. Antidepressants.

:24:48.:24:55.

Right. Dangerous depressant. Definitely. One of the most

:24:56.:25:00.

important thing the Rocks said to me today is about drinking. If you

:25:01.:25:05.

drink you can't do a lot of sports. That's how I've learnt today. I will

:25:06.:25:09.

never drink. They tell us not to give up and some things are hard,

:25:10.:25:13.

you pick yourself up and bounce back. We come in here with 100%

:25:14.:25:18.

effort and mentality. We come here to have a positive change on what is

:25:19.:25:22.

going on and the kids react to us in such a way they want to give us a

:25:23.:25:27.

medal. Them feeling that, you know strongly about us, thatst poive way,

:25:28.:25:30.

I think that's the light we want to shone. The Rocks will look for more

:25:31.:25:42.

medals in Sunday's BBL Cup final. What an inspiring bunch. I wonder

:25:43.:25:46.

how #24e they will deal with the weather forecast, Christopher? Not

:25:47.:25:51.

much to cheer about. It was OK today, wasn't it? Cloud and rain,

:25:52.:25:57.

reasonably mild. The calm before things turn wintry and windy. This

:25:58.:26:09.

air will bring a cold snap as we head through the latter stages of

:26:10.:26:11.

Wednesday into Thursday. Warnings out for the strength of the wind and

:26:12.:26:18.

the risk of snow. Let us start with this evening, we have rain west to

:26:19.:26:23.

east, pushing through quickly and gone by midnight replaced by showers

:26:24.:26:26.

and the wind gusting to gale force, severe gales in the far north.

:26:27.:26:30.

Wintry really only over the mountains at this point.

:26:31.:26:34.

Temperatures around zero to four Celsius. Those high winds will mean

:26:35.:26:37.

tomorrow morning likely to be disruption on the bridges and

:26:38.:26:41.

potentially the ferries as well. It will be a windy day for all. The

:26:42.:26:44.

showers will be frequent. For most, the showers will be of rain, perhaps

:26:45.:26:49.

sleet or wet snow mixed in, certainly on the higher ground.

:26:50.:26:52.

Brightness with them at times, the best of which around the east coast.

:26:53.:26:58.

A windy showery day all today. Temperatures lower than today, four

:26:59.:27:00.

or five Celsius generally. As the showers come through the temperature

:27:01.:27:04.

will drop and add on the wind it will feel cold. Best of anything

:27:05.:27:09.

dryer and brighter around the east coast, East Lothian to Aberdeen. The

:27:10.:27:13.

showers will be frequent. Around the coast they will be of rain, inland

:27:14.:27:16.

more likely to be wintry. That is when it starts to bite. As we head

:27:17.:27:22.

through Wednesday evening those showers increase in number, as does

:27:23.:27:26.

the intensity. We will see snow to lower levels and higher parts of

:27:27.:27:30.

these roads likely to see a covering at times too. The heaviest of the

:27:31.:27:35.

showers will drive the snow down to sea levels. The showers nowhere the

:27:36.:27:38.

snow will occur, that's the tricky bit. Thursday, another windy and

:27:39.:27:41.

showery day. The warnings still in force. It will be cold, bitterly so,

:27:42.:27:48.

with the strength of the wind. That's the forecast for now. Jackie.

:27:49.:27:52.

That's us all terrified. Thank you very much, Christopher that's

:27:53.:27:57.

Reporting Scotland. We will be back with the headlines at 8.00pm and the

:27:58.:28:02.

jurs after the Ten
