That's all from the BBC News at Six, so it's goodbye from me

:00:00.:00:00.

Nurse Pauline Cafferkey faces disciplinary action.

:00:00.:00:10.

It's claimed she concealed her temperature at an Ebola screening

:00:11.:00:13.

when she returned to the UK from Sierra Leone.

:00:14.:00:16.

From dust to development - 1,000 new council houses will be

:00:17.:00:18.

built in Lanarkshire, helping the thousands

:00:19.:00:22.

Don't get on with my life in that year-and-a-half. I was stuck in

:00:23.:00:36.

waiting an trying to get somewhere. I was stuck in waiting an trying

:00:37.:00:38.

to get somewhere. We'll be looking at how it should

:00:39.:00:40.

help tackle the housing shortage. Also on the programme. Why people

:00:41.:00:43.

from ethnic minorities in Scotland are more likely to live

:00:44.:00:45.

in overcrowded accommodation, It's a massive night for Eilidh

:00:46.:01:01.

Doyle adds she prepares for her first Olympic final. It comes from

:01:02.:01:05.

the audience tonight, ladies and gentlemen. And we catch up with the

:01:06.:01:11.

comedians trying to sell their shows on the Edinburgh Fringe.

:01:12.:01:26.

Nurse Pauline Cafferkey is facing charges that she concealed

:01:27.:01:29.

the fact that she had a high temperature when she returned

:01:30.:01:32.

to the UK from working with Ebola patients in Sierra Leone.

:01:33.:01:34.

Ms Cafferkey is expected to appear before a hearing of the Nursing

:01:35.:01:37.

Our social affairs correspondent, Reevel Alderson has

:01:38.:01:41.

We knew she was under investigation. It was in March last year that she

:01:42.:01:56.

appeared before the Nursing and Midwifery Council to decide if she

:01:57.:01:59.

could continue to practise as a nurse while other investigations

:02:00.:02:03.

went on. They were into allegations that she was unwell when she began

:02:04.:02:10.

her journey back to the UK, from Sierra Leone in Africa, and obscured

:02:11.:02:15.

her symptoms. Remember she was in Sierra Leone treating patients who

:02:16.:02:19.

were suffering from the Ebola virus epidemic out there. When she

:02:20.:02:25.

returned home in December of 2014, she quickly became unwell, she was

:02:26.:02:28.

treated at the Royal Free Hospital she quickly became unwell, she was

:02:29.:02:32.

in London in specialist isolation conditions and although she was

:02:33.:02:37.

declared free of the virus, she subsequently had a relapse, although

:02:38.:02:41.

she is now well, we understand. What exactly are the charged that she is

:02:42.:02:46.

facing? We, public health officials were monitoring everybody coming

:02:47.:02:50.

back into the UK, into Heathrow Airport from an Ebola zone, in 2014

:02:51.:02:55.

and 15. It is alleged that Pauline Cafferkey knew she had a raised

:02:56.:02:59.

temperature. That is one of the signs of the virus, when she came

:03:00.:03:04.

back into the UK and she took Paracetamol to depress the

:03:05.:03:08.

temperature. The NMC has drafted charges reflecting this, but it says

:03:09.:03:14.

it has received new evidence from Ms Cafferkey which it is considering.

:03:15.:03:18.

They have apologised to her, today they put briefly the charges she is

:03:19.:03:24.

facing on their website, in advance of a disciplinary panel next month.

:03:25.:03:28.

They have taken them down, they have apologised. They will be examining

:03:29.:03:33.

her fitness to practise as a nurse, in a statement, she said this

:03:34.:03:37.

evening that she hoped that after the case has been examined by the

:03:38.:03:41.

panel, the matter will finally be at an end. Thank you.

:03:42.:03:43.

Most of us used to live a home owned by the council,

:03:44.:03:48.

but for years the number of council houses in Scotland has been falling.

:03:49.:03:51.

Now plans have been announced for what's thought to be the biggest

:03:52.:03:54.

council housing development in Scotland for decades

:03:55.:03:57.

So is council housing on the way back?

:03:58.:03:58.

Here's our local government correspondent Jamie McIvor.

:03:59.:04:05.

Thank you. David and Eileen have moved into a brand-new council

:04:06.:04:14.

house. Eileen has been house bound since she had an accident. The new

:04:15.:04:18.

house is making a big difference to them The house for start, they have

:04:19.:04:24.

wider doors which helps... Me getting about in my wheelchair. And

:04:25.:04:30.

the bathroom is a massive size, there is no problem getting in. The

:04:31.:04:36.

15 floor in the last tower block. Their old home was at the top of a

:04:37.:04:41.

tower block. The once in is where a tower block used to stand. I seen it

:04:42.:04:48.

getting exploded as well. The tower dominated this part of

:04:49.:04:53.

Motherwell for nearly 50 years. Tower blocks and housing schemes

:04:54.:04:58.

defined Scotland's urban landscape. The plan in North Lanarkshire is

:04:59.:05:03.

very different. The plan isn't for massive new housing estates, instead

:05:04.:05:06.

the council is talking about maybe building ten new houses in one place

:05:07.:05:12.

and 15 somewhere else, all adding to existing communities. It is

:05:13.:05:17.

important the council does not build big estates with these new houses.

:05:18.:05:23.

They should be small groups of house, 15-20. Campaigner says the

:05:24.:05:29.

investment is welcome but 12,000 are still on the waiting list. And

:05:30.:05:33.

across Scotland it is more than ten times that number. There is 150,000

:05:34.:05:38.

people on waiting litss for a home in Scotland. To put that in

:05:39.:05:44.

perspective, that is like filling Hampden three times over. We know

:05:45.:05:50.

that last year there was about 35,000 people made homeless

:05:51.:05:52.

application, in Scotland, so there is a real housing crisis in

:05:53.:05:57.

Scotland. Nationally the Scottish Government wants 50,000 affordable

:05:58.:06:01.

homes built over the lifetime of this Parliament. 35,000 of them for

:06:02.:06:06.

rent by councils or housing association, the right to buy

:06:07.:06:10.

council houses was established recently so council houses now stay

:06:11.:06:14.

council houses. Joe knows what it is like to be in a housing waiting

:06:15.:06:19.

list. He stayed with friends for more than a year. Sofa to sofa with

:06:20.:06:27.

bag, my clothes in bags, just really couldn't really get on with my life

:06:28.:06:33.

during that kind of year-and-a-half. Back in Motherwell, the Irvines are

:06:34.:06:37.

enjoying their new home and while today's announcement is significant,

:06:38.:06:40.

nationally, council housing will never be as important again as it

:06:41.:06:44.

once was. This is all about how councils and others can help solve

:06:45.:06:50.

BBC Scotland has learnt that the Chief Executive

:06:51.:06:53.

of Aberdeen City Council excluded herself from an investigation

:06:54.:06:55.

into the way senior managers handled the baby ashes scandal.

:06:56.:06:59.

Angela Scott commissioned a secret report, but didn't include herself

:07:00.:07:03.

Our reporter Kevin Keane is at the council's headquarters now.

:07:04.:07:05.

Well, it is very surprising, and many people are surprised by it,

:07:06.:07:20.

because the impression that has been given and certainly some people have

:07:21.:07:25.

been stating is that this secret report covers senior managers, right

:07:26.:07:29.

up to the very top, but not very long ago we managed to get from the

:07:30.:07:32.

council the terms of reference set out by the chief executive, and it

:07:33.:07:37.

was from the crematorium manager, the person who was sacked, up to the

:07:38.:07:42.

director, the under fire director who is on annual leave. It did not

:07:43.:07:46.

include the chief executive herself, or any of her predecessors, now the

:07:47.:07:52.

explanation for that is that the chief executive was not specifically

:07:53.:07:55.

criticised in previous reports about this issue and that is why she was

:07:56.:07:59.

excluded but of course, remember, an external person has been brought in

:08:00.:08:03.

to carry out this review and the presumption by many is that was

:08:04.:08:08.

because that would enable them to investigate all levels of managers.

:08:09.:08:12.

One councillor has said this evening that it is wrong that the most

:08:13.:08:17.

senior manager who sets the culture of the organisation has been

:08:18.:08:22.

excluded, and the father, we heard from earlier this week, stated that

:08:23.:08:25.

it is surprising because it was meant to be an open and transparent

:08:26.:08:29.

investigation looking at everything. Thank you.

:08:30.:08:34.

People from ethnic minorities in Scotland are four times more

:08:35.:08:37.

likely than the general population to live in overcrowded

:08:38.:08:39.

accommodation, according to research published today.

:08:40.:08:40.

They are also twice as likely to be poor and out of work.

:08:41.:08:44.

But the Scottish Government says it's working to eradicating racism.

:08:45.:08:46.

He came to Glasgow from Afghanistan, as a 21-year-old. Back in 2001,

:08:47.:09:03.

teenage boy or a young boy, alone with no family support, for me the

:09:04.:09:12.

priority was my first of all need to know the people, the culture, the

:09:13.:09:17.

language, settle here. He took an accountancy degree but...

:09:18.:09:23.

When I qualified unfortunately the country was hit by recession, or

:09:24.:09:29.

unemployment, the entire country, but being a member of ethnic

:09:30.:09:35.

minority group, we are more disadvantaged. It was difficult for

:09:36.:09:40.

me, difficult for the public, but more difficult for me, to get

:09:41.:09:44.

employment, or full-time employment at the time. Today's report says in

:09:45.:09:51.

2013 more than 13% of ethnic minority people were unemployed

:09:52.:09:53.

compared with nearly 7% for the minority people were unemployed

:09:54.:09:57.

general population. Population. Ethnic minority people were twice as

:09:58.:10:04.

likely poor and 12% of ethnic minority households live in

:10:05.:10:07.

overcrowded accommodation, that is four times the rate for white Scots.

:10:08.:10:11.

We have known the overcrowding issue for 20 year, we are bringing the

:10:12.:10:15.

whole pile of information together, to hold a mirror up to Scotland, and

:10:16.:10:20.

place a challenge to local Government, central Government, the

:10:21.:10:23.

NHS, we have known the problems for a long time, we really need action

:10:24.:10:28.

on this now. The Scottish Government says racism

:10:29.:10:33.

has no place in Scotland. It says it already has ground-breaking policies

:10:34.:10:39.

in place. Through a framework we will undertake and are currently

:10:40.:10:43.

undertaking a range of actions to address inequality and race

:10:44.:10:48.

inequality in Scotland, because race inequality in disadvantage any form

:10:49.:10:53.

is unacceptable. Back at the two bedroom flat he shares with his wife

:10:54.:10:59.

and their five children, Abdul is making plans for their future in

:11:00.:11:06.

Scotland. My oldest one is getting 11 years of age. I don't want him to

:11:07.:11:13.

be unemployed, I don't want him to be treated differently, so I want

:11:14.:11:18.

him to have success in the life like any other children, the children

:11:19.:11:25.

they are, are the same school, class together.

:11:26.:11:28.

The inquiry into the Edinburgh trams fiaso could lead

:11:29.:11:31.

to criminal prosecutions, according to the judge

:11:32.:11:32.

The probe, chaired by Lord Hardie, has just started to gather evidence

:11:33.:11:36.

It is just around the corner from here, this tram stop at St Andrew

:11:37.:11:50.

ice square that Lord harry and the team have been sifting through

:11:51.:11:53.

millions of documents and for the first time talking to members of the

:11:54.:11:57.

public about how they were affected by the upheaval and disruption of

:11:58.:12:01.

the Edinburgh trams project. In fact he reminded us today there is a

:12:02.:12:06.

chance to come forward, if you have a contribution to make to his

:12:07.:12:08.

investigation. His job, of course, to find out how the project went so

:12:09.:12:16.

badly wrong. You will recall those months of structure, the dug up

:12:17.:12:21.

streets, the dispute between the council and contractors that went o

:12:22.:12:26.

on for years in fact. His job to find out why it ended up costing

:12:27.:12:31.

over three-quarters of a billion pounds to deliver half the line. He

:12:32.:12:35.

said today the scope of the inquiry goult be able to determine criminal

:12:36.:12:40.

or financial liability, but he did say that the evidence it uncovered

:12:41.:12:45.

and its findings could be used by the Crown Office and the Lord

:12:46.:12:48.

Advocate to bring about prosecutions should they want to do so. In the

:12:49.:12:54.

meantime of course, it is up to him to get to the bottom of what went

:12:55.:12:58.

wrong, we are into the tenth month of this inquiry. It has cost ?3.7

:12:59.:13:04.

million of public money, and we still are a long way off finding out

:13:05.:13:06.

the answers as to what happened. Salvors working to refloat

:13:07.:13:12.

a drilling rig aground in the Western Isles say they plan

:13:13.:13:14.

to attach a second towline today. It's also hoped that tens

:13:15.:13:17.

of thousands of diesel fuel onboard the Transocean Winner will be

:13:18.:13:20.

transferred to a different section of the structure to prevent any more

:13:21.:13:22.

leaking into the sea. At the Olympics there

:13:23.:13:27.

have been more Scottish competitors in action today,

:13:28.:13:29.

as Team GB continue Eilidh Doyle, formerly

:13:30.:13:30.

Eilidh Child, goes in the final There's also Scottish interest

:13:31.:13:35.

in the golf. In Rio for us this evening

:13:36.:13:38.

is our Olympics reporter Jane Lewis. Thank you. We will bring you news of

:13:39.:13:56.

a great day on the golf course for that Scottish golfer, let us look

:13:57.:14:00.

ahead to a massive night for Eilidh Doyle. She goes in the final of the

:14:01.:14:06.

400 metres #4urdles final. It is her first Olympic final. Here are two

:14:07.:14:11.

quay questions, can she win, get a medal and the second one, how is she

:14:12.:14:16.

feeling right now? To get some insight into that, a short time ago

:14:17.:14:22.

I spoke to the former Scotland and British 400 metre runner Alison

:14:23.:14:27.

Curbishley. I never had a final, but yes, without doubt, she hasn't made

:14:28.:14:32.

it easy for herself, she had to go through as a fastest loser, no

:14:33.:14:36.

athlete wants to do that, her lane draw isn't as good as she would have

:14:37.:14:40.

hoped. But she is in the final, she has a lane. Lane one, it will be

:14:41.:14:46.

tough, but she has had so much confidence that she has got to be

:14:47.:14:51.

able to harness, she has beaten a lot of these girls not necessarily

:14:52.:14:55.

got the quickest time lining up but she has got the chance. Do you think

:14:56.:15:00.

she has a realistic chance? You talk about the fact she has done it in

:15:01.:15:04.

Diamond Leagues but this is the Olympics? She is up against a

:15:05.:15:08.

reigning World Champion, who is looking close back to her best,

:15:09.:15:14.

Mohammed from America is outside, the two lanes outside her, the

:15:15.:15:17.

favourite. A good second and a bit ahead of everyone. It's the minor

:15:18.:15:23.

medals. As long as she can nail her start, and her stride pattern from

:15:24.:15:27.

lane one there is a bronze there for her. She did that in the semi, we

:15:28.:15:33.

have seen her stuttering to the ends n the semi it was almost perfect.

:15:34.:15:38.

Technically, yes, the only questions were her coming off the barrier and

:15:39.:15:43.

started -- starting to fade. An adrenaline surge from being in the

:15:44.:15:46.

final, the backing of Malcolm ao told in who has been there and done

:15:47.:15:50.

it, he has a wealth of knowledge, he will be calming her down.

:16:06.:16:10.

Tonight great news from the golf course and a brilliant second day

:16:11.:16:14.

for Scottish golf Erika treenia Matthew. She started after the first

:16:15.:16:19.

round on level par but she has played out of her skin. Finished a

:16:20.:16:24.

short time ago, her second round, 5-under. Three shots off the leader

:16:25.:16:31.

who is Steacy Lewis of the USA. So, a traffic day for Scottish

:16:32.:16:34.

golfer, Catroina Matthew there. Let's hope that sets the tone for

:16:35.:16:39.

this evening, a massive night lies ahead for Eildh Doyle. She goes in

:16:40.:16:43.

her first Olympic final. Fingers crossed for her. Fingers crossed

:16:44.:16:45.

indeed. Thank you. It's 50 years today since

:16:46.:16:51.

the Tay Road Bridge opened. At the time it was the longest

:16:52.:16:53.

crossing of its kind in the UK. The bridge brought huge benefits

:16:54.:16:56.

to the people of Dundee and Fife, but as Andrew Anderson reports,

:16:57.:16:59.

for some that first day - it's 50 and the flags are flying

:17:00.:17:15.

once again, as it did when the Tay Road Bridge bridge opened. The Queen

:17:16.:17:18.

Mother was driven over the UK's longest road bridge. Nearly 1.5

:17:19.:17:22.

miles connecting Dundee and the north of Fife. The bridge was and

:17:23.:17:27.

remains vital to those communities It provides access to other

:17:28.:17:32.

infrastructure, such as hospitals. Incredibly important and we carry

:17:33.:17:38.

2,000 vehicles a day. To be able to create that link it's marvellous.

:17:39.:17:46.

The coming of the bridge meant the passion of the Fifees, the ferries

:17:47.:17:51.

that for decades, crossed the Tay. Margaret wliegt's father had been a

:17:52.:17:56.

ferry captain. On the day the bridge opened, they watched from here as

:17:57.:17:58.

the last ferry sailed. My dad was opened, they watched from here as

:17:59.:18:03.

able to throw the last rope on to the boat before it took off, yes. It

:18:04.:18:06.

must have been a really poignant moment. It must have been, yes.

:18:07.:18:10.

Building this bridge last tleed years, with the labours of hundreds

:18:11.:18:14.

of men. -- lasted three years. It took their sweat as well as blood

:18:15.:18:21.

and tears. This modest memorial on the Fife side commemorates the five

:18:22.:18:25.

men who died during the building of the bridge. Three were killed in one

:18:26.:18:31.

accident in 1965. This man, John McQueen had swapped his shift with

:18:32.:18:36.

another work. Better Smith's wife was ill. He had gone home to be with

:18:37.:18:41.

her. He was killed when it should have been me. It must have been a

:18:42.:18:46.

shock. It brings the hair up on the back of nigh neck, yet. It really

:18:47.:18:50.

does. I think about them every November. The bridge now carries

:18:51.:18:53.

nearly five times the traffic it did when it opened. 9 million vehicles a

:18:54.:18:59.

year. When bridges are designed they typically of a design life of what

:19:00.:19:08.

engineers call, 120 years we are only 50 into it. With maintenance

:19:09.:19:15.

and inspection, there is no reason why it can't go on forever. We could

:19:16.:19:20.

be back here in another 50 years. And now the home-based sporting news

:19:21.:19:22.

now. With Celtic on the verge of

:19:23.:19:24.

qualifying for the Champions League, their manager Brendan Rodgers

:19:25.:19:27.

admits his team is far However, Brendan Rodgers

:19:28.:19:28.

is praising their character and ability after beating

:19:29.:19:31.

Hapoel Beer Sheva of Israel 5-2 in the first leg of their

:19:32.:19:35.

final qualifying tie. The message from the Celtic fans was

:19:36.:19:48.

clear and the team, it appears, took it to heart. Under the guidance of

:19:49.:19:52.

Brendan Rodgers, Celtic looked like a team keen to make amends for two

:19:53.:19:56.

years without Champions' League football. By half-time, following a

:19:57.:20:00.

polished and at times scintillating display, they had one foot in the

:20:01.:20:04.

group stage. Only for a familiar failing to rear

:20:05.:20:10.

its head. We conceded two poor goals. A little bit of inexperience.

:20:11.:20:14.

Then there is a question asked of you - there will be periods that

:20:15.:20:18.

come under pressure. It is having the checkpoints in place it stay

:20:19.:20:21.

calm, get control of the game and look to shift the momentum again.

:20:22.:20:24.

Like I say, they are nowhere near the finished article yet in terms of

:20:25.:20:28.

where I want them to be but I think they look a really exciting team,

:20:29.:20:31.

full of character. Both those attributes were to the foreas Celtic

:20:32.:20:37.

recovered their composure. Taking command of the tie once more,

:20:38.:20:43.

perhaps an indication that the new manager has instilled a new mind

:20:44.:20:48.

set. It is up here the mentality that sometimes gets you here. You

:20:49.:20:53.

can have the tactical ability, we can talk about it all day but if you

can get the mind right perform at this level under intense pressure,

:21:01.:21:03.

that's what matters. That's the difference between the top players

:21:04.:21:07.

and the aevenl players. Rodgers and his players won't believe the hype

:21:08.:21:10.

just yet but this was a big step towards mixing once more with

Europe's elite. The man at the top of

:21:25.:21:27.

us he knows who he wants to take Here are the two main characters in

:21:28.:21:38.

this story so star. Scotland head coach, Vern Cotter and the man who

:21:39.:21:42.

will replace him, Glasgow Warriors head coach, Gregor Townsend. As we

:21:43.:21:46.

understand why, we need to introduce a third man, their boss. He says

:21:47.:21:50.

Townsend is being promoted because otherwise, he might be lost to

:21:51.:21:55.

Scottish rugby. I think he felt it was probably in his interest to get

:21:56.:21:59.

experience elsewhere, rather than stay at Glasgow for what would have

:22:00.:22:02.

been six or seven years. His view was, if it is not now, I think I

:22:03.:22:07.

want to move on and we expected that and there's tonnes of interest. Our

:22:08.:22:11.

view was he was ready. Was Cotter ready to leave? And did he have any

:22:12.:22:17.

say in the matter? We never had that conversation. It was a case of this

:22:18.:22:22.

is what Scotland needed. We took the view and did our due diligence that

:22:23.:22:27.

this was the right time. We had a coach that was ready. Probably the

:22:28.:22:30.

most outstanding coach of his generation and this was the right

:22:31.:22:33.

time for us to make that move. With Townsend moving, who'll move into

:22:34.:22:38.

his job at the Pro 12 team Glasgow Warriors? We have movers on the

:22:39.:22:42.

market and are confident to be able to announce a highly successful

:22:43.:22:45.

coach. You know this person? We do. And that person is... Sorry, at the

:22:46.:22:52.

moment I don't know. As soon as I do know, I'll tell you.

Just a few days after becoming the first player to defend

:23:02.:23:04.

an Olympic Mens Singles title, Andy Murray cruised

:23:05.:23:06.

through his first round match at the Cincinatti Masters.

:23:07.:23:08.

Murray beat Juan Monaco in straight sets, 6-3,

:23:09.:23:10.

6-2 as he began preparations for the US Open.

:23:11.:23:14.

He plays South Africa's Kevin Anderson in the next round.

Some of the best-known comedians in the country started their careers

Robin Williams, Steve Coogan and John Cleese have

:23:27.:23:29.

And despite being regarded as one of the toughest places to play,

:23:30.:23:33.

there's no shortage of volunteers this year.

:23:34.:23:35.

Our arts correspondent Pauline McLean found a vantage point

:23:36.:23:37.

above the Royal Mile to talk to two Scottish comedians

:23:38.:23:39.

Hello. We are up here. We are avoiding everything that is

:23:40.:23:49.

happening. Escaping the Mele that is the Fringe and the Royal Mile at

:23:50.:23:53.

this time where thousands of shows are being sold and marketed. Almost

:23:54.:23:58.

one-third of them at the Fringe are comedy shows, and two belong to

:23:59.:24:04.

Susan Calman Daniel. Tell us what the Fringe means to you. You started

:24:05.:24:09.

here, this is where it began? Yes, I started when I was 16, I think. I

:24:10.:24:13.

did some weird awful comedy course, which if you want to get into

:24:14.:24:19.

stand-up don't ever do. First years, I sold fliers up and down here. Did

:24:20.:24:23.

you have big audiences? Yes it worked I had a lunch time show h 12.

:24:24.:24:29.

45. We got people in their lunch breaks and harassed them until they

:24:30.:24:32.

came to the show. They enjoyed it. When did you first start coming? My

:24:33.:24:38.

tenth year, my first anniversary, like Daniel I started off fliering

:24:39.:24:42.

in the Royal Mile. Unlike Daniel no-one came to my first show for a

:24:43.:24:47.

whole month. It was terrible. Things have got better. I remember coming

:24:48.:24:53.

here in the '80s when my sister was a student and thinking it was the

:24:54.:24:57.

most exciting place in the world to. Perform here I think it is the most

:24:58.:25:00.

amazing thing possible as a comedian, it is tough. Tough, the

:25:01.:25:05.

comedy circuit is tough but you are putting yourself through it. It

:25:06.:25:10.

makes you a better comedian. If you have a bad gig, you don't have time

:25:11.:25:15.

to worry about it, you have to get back on stage the next night. You

:25:16.:25:19.

have to keep going throughout illness and stress. If you are a

:25:20.:25:23.

comedian here, it makes you better for the future I think doing one

:25:24.:25:27.

season here is the equivalent as two years on the circuit. You don't have

:25:28.:25:32.

someone opening for you or on after you. You have to keep their

:25:33.:25:35.

attention from 15 minutes to an hour. It is all on you, it is where

:25:36.:25:39.

you develop a personality on stage. Well thank you very much. Good luck

:25:40.:25:44.

with the best of the Fringe run. I guess we better head back down there

:25:45.:25:46.

again. That's Pauline McClean there. Now

:25:47.:25:49.

let's get the weather from Christopher.

:25:50.:25:53.

Good evening, a another lovely day for many parts of the country, but

:25:54.:25:57.

there is comang afoot. Low pressure on the way in through the next few

:25:58.:26:01.

days, Friday, Saturday and Sunday bringing bands on rain, heavy

:26:02.:26:04.

showers and some strengthening winds as well. That's what is to come.

:26:05.:26:09.

This is what has been. If we just get rid of the demroeb, you can see

:26:10.:26:13.

it was pretty decent weather across the south-west. Blue skies there in

:26:14.:26:18.

South Ayrshire, early 20s, 22, 23. But as we head through the course of

:26:19.:26:23.

the evening, we will see some low cloud and misreforming across the

:26:24.:26:28.

north-east. And indeed you can see on the chart there. It should be a

:26:29.:26:34.

dry night. Tomorrow, it starts dry, some

:26:35.:26:38.

sunshine further north that you are, looking south-west, the cloud

:26:39.:26:41.

building and rain arrives. That's that low pressure system we just

:26:42.:26:47.

saw. If we pull out we can see it pushing its way across Ireland,

:26:48.:26:50.

bricking this band of rain in across the south-west and the rain moving

:26:51.:26:53.

north, north-eastwards through the day. Turning wet through the central

:26:54.:26:59.

belt by early afternoon, and certainly by mid-afternoon across

:27:00.:27:03.

the south, the winds heavy and persistent. Winds fresher around the

:27:04.:27:08.

coast from the east to south-east. Dundee, Aberdeen still dry. Fairly

:27:09.:27:14.

cloudy. Towards Inverness and north-west sunshine in store andself

:27:15.:27:18.

tours could still be up to 22. Dry for Orkney and shelt land. Cloud and

:27:19.:27:24.

brightness. For the rest of the evening the wet weather working

:27:25.:27:27.

northwards reaching most parts of the mainland and heavy showers

:27:28.:27:30.

following. Certainly that's the weekend's weather really. Heavy rain

:27:31.:27:34.

with us across Orkney and Shetland, behind it for a time in the

:27:35.:27:40.

mainland. Some showers. Some thunder in the mix, difficult to pinpoint

:27:41.:27:44.

where they will be but cater for one or two heavy downpours at time. If

:27:45.:27:49.

you get the sunshine it'll be humid, certainly not a write-off but cater

:27:50.:27:51.

for one or two heavy Nurse Pauline Cafferty has been

:27:52.:28:08.

accused of concealing that she had a high temperature when coming back

:28:09.:28:13.

from Sierra Leone. That's it from us until the 10.00
