Good evening and welcome to BBC Newsline.

:00:09.:00:12.

The First Minister Arlene Foster says Sinn Fein's proposals

:00:13.:00:15.

into the controversial heat incentive scheme

:00:16.:00:19.

could provide a basis for moving forward on the issue.

:00:20.:00:22.

However, she again insisted she will not be stepping aside

:00:23.:00:25.

Our Political Correspondent Gareth Gordon reports.

:00:26.:00:30.

Everyday is a school day, even politicians need

:00:31.:00:37.

help getting answers to difficult problems and today Arlene Foster

:00:38.:00:41.

took time out from other pressing matters

:00:42.:00:47.

to attend the opening of a new school.

:00:48.:00:49.

On display, an ability to bend over backwards.

:00:50.:00:58.

Cash for ash continues to smoulder, about the

:00:59.:01:00.

only thing Sinn Fein and the DUP agree on is the need to avoid a

:01:01.:01:04.

Sinn Fein want a judge led panel to investigate the

:01:05.:01:11.

It would have the power to compel witnesses to appear and

:01:12.:01:17.

access documents, a preliminary report would be ready in one month.

:01:18.:01:20.

At the heart of the times of reference of

:01:21.:01:29.

the need for Arlene Foster to stand aside.

:01:30.:01:31.

They have clearly set out their stall in reference to that not

:01:32.:01:34.

Today the only place Arlene Foster was stepping away from

:01:35.:01:38.

Will you be accepting Sinn Fein's terms of reference?

:01:39.:01:44.

Tonight she said that with the exception

:01:45.:01:57.

of stepping aside, her party believed the Sinn Fein

:01:58.:01:59.

proposals provide the basis for taking an investigation forward.

:02:00.:02:01.

Officials had raised some technical issues but said the First Minister

:02:02.:02:08.

there don't appear any insuperable obstacles.

:02:09.:02:12.

In response, Sinn Fein said nothing had changed.

:02:13.:02:13.

The only member of the Executive who doesn't belong to

:02:14.:02:20.

the DUP or Sinn Fein today gave her verdict

:02:21.:02:22.

Her handling of this has been appalling.

:02:23.:02:28.

You're able to demonstrate humility without

:02:29.:02:30.

But Claire Sugden says she has no intention of resigning.

:02:31.:02:48.

The only mess being tangled at Stormont

:02:49.:02:51.

is the one left by its Christmas tree.

:02:52.:02:53.

Up to 83 jobs are under threat

:02:54.:02:55.

at an engineering factory in Londonderry.

:02:56.:02:57.

Administrators have been called in to Schivo NI

:02:58.:02:59.

which supplies major aircraft manufacturers.

:03:00.:03:01.

Our North-West reporter Keiron Tourish has more.

:03:02.:03:04.

The Schivo NI group bought the plant around 18 months ago and said

:03:05.:03:07.

that the time that it had plans for expansion.

:03:08.:03:09.

The plant, which makes part of the aviation industry and has

:03:10.:03:14.

aerospace company Bombardier amongst its clients,

:03:15.:03:16.

But now there are real fears for those jobs.

:03:17.:03:22.

The Waterford-based group says that, unfortunately,

:03:23.:03:24.

despite its best efforts and considerable investment,

:03:25.:03:29.

it was unable to turn things around here.

:03:30.:03:34.

The administrators have now been called in

:03:35.:03:38.

and they will carry out a thorough review of its operations

:03:39.:03:41.

here before advising on the best course of action.

:03:42.:03:43.

One union said the unions is yet another huge blow

:03:44.:03:46.

to the industrial base in the north-west,

:03:47.:03:48.

Judging by what's happened in this instance,

:03:49.:03:54.

The discrimination against the North West is in actual fact.

:03:55.:04:03.

Despite all the political changes, Derry is still at the tail end

:04:04.:04:09.

of the queue when it comes to investment and preferment

:04:10.:04:11.

While the plant could potentially be sold as a going concern,

:04:12.:04:19.

there remains a real fear over its future.

:04:20.:04:25.

Almost 9,000 homes and businesses were without electricity

:04:26.:04:28.

for several hours in Enniskillen earlier today

:04:29.:04:31.

after a swan brought down an overhead cable.

:04:32.:04:35.

The live power line hit cars parked in a petrol station forecourt.

:04:36.:04:38.

Our south west reporter Julian Fowler has more.

:04:39.:04:46.

Staff inside the shop in Enniskillen described a bang and a flash

:04:47.:04:50.

as the lights went out and a power line came down.

:04:51.:04:54.

They said one car park to the petrol station forecourt lit up

:04:55.:04:59.

It also struck a van with two men inside.

:05:00.:05:04.

until NIE engineers arrived to turn off the electricity.

:05:05.:05:13.

It happened after a swan struck an overhead power line.

:05:14.:05:16.

It was killed, but given the circumstances of a live power

:05:17.:05:18.

cable falling onto a petrol station, this was a dangerous situation

:05:19.:05:22.

which could have had catastrophic consequences.

:05:23.:05:30.

Rugby and Ulster have lost to the Scarlets in Wales

:05:31.:05:32.

They were beaten by 16-13. Nial Foster reports.

:05:33.:05:42.

It was almost a cruel sense of deja vu for Ulster. COMMENTATOR:

:06:32.:06:40.

try. Ulster fail to score in the second half and fell to another

defeat. The former Brazilian football

I like very much Belfast. Everywhere he has gone,

football fans have recognised him. They are good.

:07:44.:07:52.

I want to say thank you. My holidays have been

to high pressure sitting over as. Low cloud, possibly the odd bit of

thing on Saturday. We hold onto a lot of cloud and mainly dry

:08:38.:08:41.

conditions. The cloud will be thick enough to give a fuse box of wet

:08:42.:08:50.

weather. Some low cloud, missed and fog. It could cause some problems

early on the roads. A fuse scattered showers for south-west England,

maybe one or two coming into Ireland. Generally, it's a dry

of the afternoon, we hold onto cloudy conditions and missed the

weather as well. It's not going to amount to very much. Top

temperatures nine or even 10 degrees. Another mild night tomorrow

:09:26.:09:30.

night. Certainly no frost. A lot of cloud around. It should be much

:09:31.:09:37.

colder. As for Sunday, very little is going to change. A lot of cloud

:09:38.:09:43.

around, maybe the odd spot of light rain or drizzle.
