The police have launched a murder inquiry after a man died

:00:00.:00:08.

in a house fire in Milngavie, north of Glasgow.

:00:09.:00:11.

A joint investigation by detectives and fire officers has established

:00:12.:00:13.

that the fire was deliberately set, and is said to have been targeted.

:00:14.:00:20.

The emergency services were called

:00:21.:00:21.

A 24-year-old woman was seriously injured in the fire.

:00:22.:00:25.

A man and woman in their 50s were also treated

:00:26.:00:28.

The man who died hasn't been formally identified.

:00:29.:00:35.

Organisers of Edinburgh's Hogmanay have described the event

:00:36.:00:36.

75,000 people from around the world came to see

:00:37.:00:41.

a spectacular fireworks and laser show bring in 2017.

:00:42.:00:48.

Activities continued into today with hundreds braving the cold

:00:49.:00:50.

to take part in the famous Loony Dook.

:00:51.:00:53.

January 1st, 2017, and little sign of the 75,000 people

:00:54.:01:00.

Only the trundle of suitcases as revellers think about

:01:01.:01:05.

heading home to where they came from.

:01:06.:01:09.

It is maybe no wonder the street cleaners have been out all night

:01:10.:01:12.

A matter of hours earlier, it took 1,000 hours to plan

:01:13.:01:26.

a spectacular light show and firework display.

:01:27.:01:37.

Organisers say 2017 was one of their most ambitious programmes.

:01:38.:01:43.

Last night's event was one of the best we have ever produced,

:01:44.:01:46.

everything fell into place, the crowds, the weather, the music, it

:01:47.:01:52.

was an amazing party atmosphere. And on a bright New Year's Day,

:01:53.:01:58.

hardy souls took to the water to clear their heads at the annual

:01:59.:02:03.

Loony Dook. There is 1200 people here, many of them pretty scantily

:02:04.:02:07.

clad, and Daft enough to dump themselves in the Firth of. Off you

:02:08.:02:14.

go. It is not that cold. Have you been in yet? How was it?

:02:15.:02:21.

Freezing! We flew from Australia, just purely

:02:22.:02:27.

for this, because we watch it every year on television in Australia, and

:02:28.:02:32.

we got here and we were like, what is wrong with the Scottish? While

:02:33.:02:37.

they doing this? Like Tony, who has been doing this

:02:38.:02:41.

for five years and still has not learned.

:02:42.:02:46.

At least the lifeguards were here to save the day.

:02:47.:02:51.

Parents of newborn babies in Orkney and Clackmannanshire will receive

:02:52.:02:54.

a box of essentials including clothes, nappies,

:02:55.:02:57.

The Scottish Government scheme's being piloted for three months,

:02:58.:03:01.

before being extended to the rest of Scotland

:03:02.:03:04.

The box itself doubles up as a cot,

:03:05.:03:08.

and comes with a mattress and sheets.

:03:09.:03:10.

Baby boxes were introduced in Finland in the 1930s,

:03:11.:03:12.

and they've been credited as part of the reason for a sharp fall

:03:13.:03:15.

It encourages parents to engage with health services,

:03:16.:03:20.

and that is one of the ways in which, in Finland, it has

:03:21.:03:24.

helped to improve child and maternal health.

:03:25.:03:27.

But it is also about trying to get every young person,

:03:28.:03:31.

regardless of their background, the best start in life.

:03:32.:03:37.

This is giving a level playing field to every newborn child.

:03:38.:03:41.

There is nothing that is not going to be useful, the boxes

:03:42.:03:45.

will be used in various different sizes, there are things that can be

:03:46.:03:48.

used immediately and things that can be put by for months to come.

:03:49.:03:59.
