England and Wales to segregate the most dangerous Islamist prisoners.

:00:00.:00:07.

Built with private money and closed on safety grounds,

:00:08.:00:10.

now a BBC investigation finds that many Scottish schools are owned

:00:11.:00:13.

There are an awful lot of people making very substantial sums of

:00:14.:00:26.

money out of it, which have got nothing to do with, and are of no

:00:27.:00:29.

benefit to Edinburgh schools. Also on the programme, salvage

:00:30.:00:31.

engineers prepare to try to refloat the oil rig which ran aground

:00:32.:00:34.

on the the Isle of Lewis. The leader of Scottish Labour says

:00:35.:00:37.

she's not supporting Jeremy Corbyn because he can't unite the party

:00:38.:00:40.

or win a general election. As Team GB heads home from Rio,

:00:41.:00:43.

we assess the success of Scottish And - he's climbing

:00:44.:00:47.

the pecking order. We find out why Edinburgh Zoo's

:00:48.:00:52.

best-known penguin has been promoted to the rank of Brigadier

:00:53.:00:55.

in the Norwegian army. More than 200 schools built

:00:56.:01:13.

in Scotland under private finance initiatives - or PFI schemes -

:01:14.:01:19.

are now at least partially owned by offshore investment funds,

:01:20.:01:22.

a BBC investigation has found. Parts of the projects can be traded

:01:23.:01:26.

in financial markets, like the 17 Edinburgh schools that

:01:27.:01:29.

closed earlier this year Our reporter Fiona Walker

:01:30.:01:31.

can tell us more. The inquiry into why the 17 schools

:01:32.:01:42.

in Edinburgh were found But in investigating why

:01:43.:01:44.

the defects happened... This is Oxgangs Primary

:01:45.:01:56.

when the wall collapsed. The BBC also looked at

:01:57.:01:57.

the role of PFI - the private finance initiative which enabled

:01:58.:02:00.

the schools to be built. A private company called

:02:01.:02:02.

the Edinburgh Schools Partnership. Well, it's been a shifting

:02:03.:02:08.

cast of characters - the original companies involved have

:02:09.:02:12.

sold their stakes. Parts of their original stakes have

:02:13.:02:15.

been bought and sold 13 times on financial markets,

:02:16.:02:20.

which has made those So the partnership is now made

:02:21.:02:23.

up of four companies - investment funds -

:02:24.:02:30.

and they are based offshore. But the Edinburgh project

:02:31.:02:32.

isn't the only one. There are over 300 PFI

:02:33.:02:36.

schools across Scotland. New research shows that 270 schools,

:02:37.:02:53.

the vast majority, are at least partially owned offshore in

:02:54.:02:53.

investment funds. These funds are regarded

:02:54.:02:57.

as attractive investments - This PFI analyst and critic says

:02:58.:03:00.

the profits extracted by investors are being put

:03:01.:03:03.

before children's education. The whole PFI machine is really a

:03:04.:03:17.

profit machine, a wealth machine, and there are an awful lot of people

:03:18.:03:22.

making very substantial sums of money out of it, which have got

:03:23.:03:26.

nothing to do with, and are of no benefit to Edinburgh's schools.

:03:27.:03:29.

So critics argue excess profits and lack of accountability are not

:03:30.:03:31.

in the best interests of the children.

:03:32.:03:33.

But Edinburgh City Council, for one, doesn't necessarily agree.

:03:34.:03:40.

As long as we have a contractual relationship that has a contract to

:03:41.:03:47.

do the right things by the schools, and that the pupils are in good

:03:48.:03:52.

schools, safe and are in good condition, that is something we

:03:53.:03:56.

decided ten or 15 years ago, and our job is to make sure that contract

:03:57.:03:58.

goes on as well as it can. That inquiry into the Edinburgh

:03:59.:04:01.

Schools failures is due in December and is expected to have national,

:04:02.:04:04.

political and policy implications. And if you want to hear

:04:05.:04:06.

more on that story - BBC Scotland Investigates:

tonight at 7pm. The Isle of Lewis is tonight hoping

:04:12.:04:16.

to lose what's become a striking Two weeks after the drilling rig

:04:17.:04:19.

the Transocean Winner was blown ashore during a storm,

workers plan to float it free on Our reporter Angus Macdonald

is at the scene. How high are hopes

:04:27.:04:32.

that it can be done? Very high indeed. A lot of work has

:04:33.:04:48.

gone into the effort over the last couple of weeks. Men have moved onto

:04:49.:04:54.

the island, researchers have moved onto the island. We have to that you

:04:55.:04:58.

can see behind me already hooked up to the rig. Whole lot of work and

:04:59.:05:04.

effort has gone into it. Calculations have been made on how

:05:05.:05:09.

much it would take for this monster to float away. It is not just on

:05:10.:05:14.

this side of the island we have seen work today. There have been

:05:15.:05:18.

preparations coming on to receive the rig once it has been floated

:05:19.:05:26.

off. On the east side of Lewis, an anchorage for the rig is being

:05:27.:05:35.

prepared. Two tugs are headed -- hooked up. Pontoons under the rigs

:05:36.:05:42.

have been placed, and preparations have continued to ensure that the

:05:43.:05:47.

rig will float. We have 16 tanks pressurised. Two of the tanks

:05:48.:05:52.

yesterday we had difficulty with, getting the right level of pressure.

:05:53.:05:56.

A lot of work has been done, and we have confidence that there will be

:05:57.:06:01.

enough buoyancy to do the operation tonight. There is a chance the Red

:06:13.:06:17.

We will need to make sure everything is stable. We will need to make sure

:06:18.:06:22.

everything is upright, by shifting balance around the rig itself. We

:06:23.:06:27.

then have a passage plan. The rig will go round the coastline,

:06:28.:06:34.

approximately five miles offshore, with the two tugs towing it. It

:06:35.:06:43.

could be anything at between around 18 and 23 hours. A number of

:06:44.:06:51.

sightseers have gathered to say goodbye to the unexpected visitors,

:06:52.:06:55.

before a safe anchorage is found on the other side of the island. Thank

:06:56.:06:56.

you. You're watching Reporting

:06:57.:06:58.

Scotland from the BBC. Still to come on tonight's

:06:59.:07:00.

programme: Children's theatre goes on the

:07:01.:07:01.

road, and into the classroom. What happens when the leader

:07:02.:07:06.

of the Labour Party in Scotland says the leader of the UK party couldn't

:07:07.:07:09.

win a general election? Could it mean more division

:07:10.:07:12.

and uncertainty for an already Kezia Dugdale has said she will back

:07:13.:07:17.

Owen Smith in his leadership Our poiltical correspondent,

:07:18.:07:22.

Nick Eardly, reports. The Scottish Labour leader and her

:07:23.:07:36.

UK counterpart in better times. Kezia Dugdale had said Jeremy

:07:37.:07:41.

Corbyn's election at Labour leader marked a fresh start. Not now. She

:07:42.:07:46.

thinks this man is in a better position to unite the party and win

:07:47.:07:49.

thinks this man is in a better a general election. I think Owen

:07:50.:07:54.

Smith represents the best combination of radical policies,

:07:55.:07:58.

combined with a credible plan of how to achieve it. I came into politics

:07:59.:08:09.

to see a Labour government deliver a fairer and more equal United

:08:10.:08:12.

Kingdom. That isn't a view shared by everyone in Scottish Labour. Most

:08:13.:08:14.

local parties who backed the candidate are behind Jeremy Corbyn.

:08:15.:08:18.

His supporters thinks he has the backing of most members here. Jeremy

:08:19.:08:22.

offers the alternative that the country needs to have. It is looking

:08:23.:08:29.

good at the moment, from indications like canvassing and local meetings.

:08:30.:08:34.

He is doing very well. Who are some of the key players backing? Mr Smith

:08:35.:08:42.

has the support of Scotland's only Labour MP, Ian Murray. The decision

:08:43.:08:50.

was criticised by Kezia Dugdale's elected deputy. He said plotters

:08:51.:08:54.

were putting self interest first. And the new Shadow Scottish

:08:55.:08:59.

Secretary says Kezia Dugdale needs to get behind Mr Corbyn if he wins

:09:00.:09:04.

again. Dave Anderson does not speak for the Scottish Labour Party,

:09:05.:09:09.

author Jeremy Corbyn either, on the issue of the Progressive Alliance of

:09:10.:09:14.

the SNP. I work with Jeremy Corbyn all the time. We are both grown-ups.

:09:15.:09:19.

It is possible to have a free and frank debate and come to a different

:09:20.:09:23.

conclusion on an issue like this, and still work together. We will

:09:24.:09:27.

hear more from these two men and what they are offering Scots when

:09:28.:09:29.

they visit Glasgow on Thursday. Nick, where does it leave

:09:30.:09:32.

Kezia Dugdale if Jeremy Corbyn wins? Some believe the Scottish Labour

:09:33.:09:44.

leader shouldn't have publicly endorsed the candidate in this race.

:09:45.:09:49.

They say she will have to work with whoever wins, and if it is Jeremy

:09:50.:09:52.

Corbyn, the relationship could be made more difficult by her comments.

:09:53.:09:58.

Kezia Dugdale says this race is so important that she couldn't just sit

:09:59.:10:03.

by and not give her opinion. There was some suggestion that she is

:10:04.:10:06.

prepared to work with Mr Corbyn again in the future, that there are

:10:07.:10:11.

splitting the party both here in Scotland and the UK. One of the key

:10:12.:10:17.

challenges for the new UK leader, and for Ms Dugdale, will be to try

:10:18.:10:22.

and heal some of those wounds. It is unlikely to be an easy task. Thank

:10:23.:10:23.

you. The headteacher of a young boy

:10:24.:10:25.

who died, along with his mother, after being swept out to sea

in Aberdeen has described him Six-year-old Lucas Walker

:10:29.:10:31.

was playing on the beach on Saturday His mother Julie, who tried

:10:32.:10:34.

to save him, also died. The youngster's 13-year-old brother

:10:35.:10:38.

Samuel, who also went to their rescue, is said

:10:39.:10:40.

to be recovering well. A lecturer has admitting

killing his wife after wrongly believing he was not the father

:10:44.:10:46.

of their two children. Robert Kerr stabbed Shin Shiin Liu

:10:47.:10:49.

at their home in Newton Mearns, He was originally charged

:10:50.:10:52.

with murder, but the Crown accepted his plea of culpable

:10:53.:10:57.

homicide on the grounds of diminished responsibility,

:10:58.:11:00.

after it emerged he suffered "an abnormality of the mind"

:11:01.:11:03.

at the time of the attack. Do you have Olympics

:11:04.:11:08.

withdrawal symptoms yet? Are you missing televised dressage

:11:09.:11:11.

and athletics every night - Team GB's athletes are on the way

:11:12.:11:14.

home, but our reporter, Jane Lewis, is still in Rio, holding

:11:15.:11:20.

on to the Olympic spirit. I would imagine so, for many,

:11:21.:11:41.

especially those who have medals. I imagine the flight home will be very

:11:42.:11:45.

pleasant indeed, and I'm sure they can't wait to get home to show off

:11:46.:11:50.

their gold, silver and bronze medals. These Olympics were

:11:51.:11:54.

phenomenally successful from a Team GB point of view. They won 67 medals

:11:55.:12:02.

and finished second top of the table, behind America and in front

:12:03.:12:05.

of China. These games were successful from a sporting

:12:06.:12:10.

achievement, to be honest, because if you look at some of the world and

:12:11.:12:15.

Olympic records that were broken, it was almost 100 of them. Sporting

:12:16.:12:21.

success in many venues across Rio. Athletes played their part in

:12:22.:12:27.

helping Team GB to that historic medal tally from Scotland. 13

:12:28.:12:33.

Scottish medals were won in Rio, their best performance in an away

:12:34.:12:36.

Olympics from a Scottish point of view, equalling their best

:12:37.:12:42.

performance in any Olympics. The final night of athletics at the

:12:43.:12:47.

Olympic Stadium, and a perfect way to end a special games for the Scots

:12:48.:12:54.

competing as part of Team GB in Rio. It was nice to be in that group that

:12:55.:13:00.

had done so well. There was a lot of morale in the team, and everybody

:13:01.:13:03.

supporting each other, and it was great to be part of it. I think

:13:04.:13:09.

that's why we had so much success. In all, Scottish athletes won 13

:13:10.:13:15.

medals in Rio, four Gold, seven silver and two bronze across eight

:13:16.:13:20.

sports. This is my fourth Olympics now, and I think this is the best

:13:21.:13:25.

ever performance I have seen by Scottish athletes. It helps that we

:13:26.:13:31.

have Andy Murray, who is our Usain Bolt, but he delivered on his gold

:13:32.:13:36.

medal. We have had so many spectacular successes. It has been a

:13:37.:13:41.

games to remember. Andy Murray is the double Olympic gold medallist.

:13:42.:13:47.

Andy Murray's gold was an incredible personal achievement, and a 12 medal

:13:48.:13:53.

won by a Scot for Team GB at these games. Scottish success started in

:13:54.:13:58.

the pool. Day five and a relay silver. Three Scots on the podium.

:13:59.:14:04.

Significant medals also came our way... Silver for Katherine

:14:05.:14:14.

Grainger, her fifth Olympic medal. If you crack it, you would have a

:14:15.:14:18.

special performance. We said the day before that we believed there was

:14:19.:14:20.

something special we could do. And before that we believed there was

:14:21.:14:26.

it came. There was another gold for Heather Stanning. They are fearless,

:14:27.:14:34.

they are history makers! She defended her Olympic title. And on

:14:35.:14:42.

their Olympic debuts, there was brilliant in the velodrome, and two

:14:43.:14:50.

more golds. I got home late last night, and Jo's name was -- light

:14:51.:14:57.

was on in her room, and she was awake with her medal lying next to

:14:58.:15:03.

her on her bed! There was a Scottish disappointment too. Hannah Miley

:15:04.:15:07.

came close, and Lauren Muir gave it her all, but it wasn't quite enough.

:15:08.:15:14.

But there was also promising signs for the future.

:15:15.:15:22.

Plenty of Scottish success of their on evidence here at Rio. The big

:15:23.:15:27.

question is how we hold onto that and build upon it for the next major

:15:28.:15:33.

events on the horizon, the Commonwealth Games only two years

:15:34.:15:36.

away, and then the next Olympics in Tokyo in four years' time. There are

:15:37.:15:41.

world champions and European champions in between, so the likes

:15:42.:15:46.

of Sport Scotland and other sporting governing bodies that try to hone

:15:47.:15:51.

these athletes have their work cut out. They do not just plan for one

:15:52.:15:57.

Olympics at a time. This is a long-term plan, maybe even going

:15:58.:16:01.

back ten or 20 years. They know what they have to do, and they know they

:16:02.:16:06.

want to continue making Scottish athletes at the heartbeat of British

:16:07.:16:13.

success. How did we hope a form? There were questions over its

:16:14.:16:19.

abilities to host the games? Where were a lot of concerns before the

:16:20.:16:22.

abilities to host the games? Where games. The Zika virus was talked

:16:23.:16:26.

about. Was the transport up to scratch, and where the venues ready?

:16:27.:16:32.

There were talks of political unrest in the city, and many locals said

:16:33.:16:36.

they didn't want the games, and there were going to be a lot of

:16:37.:16:41.

protests. I think that those pregames issues, once the games were

:16:42.:16:47.

in full flow, they faded into the background, and as many of us

:16:48.:16:51.

expected, the sport became the main focus. From that point of view, Rio

:16:52.:16:56.

did deliver. You look at the backdrop here, there have been

:16:57.:17:00.

plenty of other stunning backdrops as well. These games will be

:17:01.:17:04.

remembered for a long time to come as being very special indeed. Thank

:17:05.:17:05.

you very much. Football fans still have the World

:17:06.:17:09.

Cup to look forward to, and the Scotland manager,

:17:10.:17:11.

Gordon Strachan, says "now is the time"

:17:12.:17:13.

for his young talent to shine. He's named his squad

:17:14.:17:16.

for the first of the qualifiers That game's against Malta

:17:17.:17:19.

in two weeks' time. Good afternoon, I'm great, very

:17:20.:17:35.

good. The Scotland manager in good fettle as a new campaign approaches

:17:36.:17:40.

and with its new blood. Callum Paterson, keirin Tierney, John

:17:41.:17:42.

McGinn and Barry Mackay each have just one cap. Oliver Bekker Steven

:17:43.:17:48.

but all could play a role as Scotland begin their quest to reach

:17:49.:17:55.

Russia 2018. Now is the time. They have proved to us on and off the

:17:56.:17:58.

pitch that we can rely on them to trust them. We hope over the next

:17:59.:18:06.

year that they will progress at their clubs and that will help us

:18:07.:18:12.

out. Those options were among a number of issues for Strachan to

:18:13.:18:14.

address with the media today. Some offer greater cause for optimism

:18:15.:18:19.

than others. Great options at left-back with Robinson and Tierney,

:18:20.:18:23.

but the same cannot be said of central defence or right back. A

:18:24.:18:29.

lack of a robust defender is an issue. I would say in the middle of

:18:30.:18:33.

the park with Scott Brown retiring and James McArthur still being

:18:34.:18:37.

unfit, that is an issue as well. Gordon Strachan wants the driving

:18:38.:18:41.

energy that Brown gave him, that is an issue he has to address, physical

:18:42.:18:45.

momentum in the middle of the park. It is not often we go into a

:18:46.:18:49.

qualifying campaign with a strike in such terrific form as Leigh

:18:50.:18:52.

Griffiths, so that is a real bonus for Gordon Strachan to have. Perhaps

:18:53.:18:58.

the one worried that the Tartan Army is Ross McCormack not being there.

:18:59.:19:03.

No McCormack and no Shaun Maloney either, the Hull City player was

:19:04.:19:07.

Scotland's top scorer in the last campaign but according to Strachan

:19:08.:19:09.

hasn't played enough recently to make the squad. It may not be his

:19:10.:19:15.

time, then, but this time would be a good time to wash away memories of

:19:16.:19:18.

nine consecutive failed qualifying campaigns.

:19:19.:19:21.

A look at other stories from across the country.

:19:22.:19:28.

The completion of a new children's hospital in Edinburgh is to be

:19:29.:19:33.

delayed after two construction firms in the build went bust. ?150 million

:19:34.:19:38.

Royal hospital for sick children was due to open next autumn but NHS

:19:39.:19:42.

Lothian says it will now be delayed until the spring of 2018. The firms

:19:43.:19:49.

involved were Dunne group and JB brick work. Some of Scotland's

:19:50.:19:52.

biggest local authorities are turning to take legal action against

:19:53.:19:56.

the government. The four including Glasgow and Aberdeen are angry they

:19:57.:20:00.

will not being colluded in final negotiations for next year's funding

:20:01.:20:04.

deal. The government says it only negotiates with the local government

:20:05.:20:08.

body, which these local authorities chose to leave, but the government

:20:09.:20:12.

says it will still consult with them. A small earthquake has been

:20:13.:20:16.

detected on the Isle of Mull in Argyll. The British Geological

:20:17.:20:21.

Survey recorded the 1.9 magnitude tremor at just after half past one

:20:22.:20:25.

on Friday afternoon. The epicentre was towards the south of the island.

:20:26.:20:31.

A summit has been held in Dunphy is to examine the key transport issues

:20:32.:20:36.

facing the South of Scotland. The transport minister has been urged to

:20:37.:20:40.

invest in the region's Road and rail links to boost the economy.

:20:41.:20:44.

Transport emerged as the major local issue during the election campaign.

:20:45.:20:50.

Upgrading the a 75 is seen as a priority. Wildlife experts have

:20:51.:20:54.

expressed concern that some of Scotland's best-known butterflies

:20:55.:20:56.

have failed to make an appearance this summer. Mid August is supposed

:20:57.:21:02.

to be peak season for species like a peacock, small tortoiseshell and

:21:03.:21:03.

to be peak season for species like a collar, but sightings have been

:21:04.:21:07.

rare. Conservationists say wet weather may be to blame.

:21:08.:21:09.

They are shows that have been around the world,

:21:10.:21:12.

but now school children will get a chance will get to see them

:21:13.:21:15.

A new project involving children's theatre makers and

:21:16.:21:18.

the National Theatre of Scotland is aiming to take the theatre

Our arts correspondent, Pauline McLean, reports.

:21:22.:21:30.

Hey, handsome, I'm home! for shoes is an award-winning piece

:21:31.:21:39.

of children's Theatre. It has already toured North America,

:21:40.:21:43.

Ireland and Germany, but this performance in an Edinburgh primary

:21:44.:21:45.

Ireland and Germany, but this school is one of the most important

:21:46.:21:48.

to date. We in Scotland produced some of the best theatre for

:21:49.:21:53.

children and young audiences in the world, and that is not just me

:21:54.:21:57.

saying that, it is the truth, it is recognised. But I want to see is

:21:58.:22:00.

more children in Scotland seeing that world-class work that is made

:22:01.:22:03.

here in Scotland, all across the country. And these shoes are made

:22:04.:22:12.

for walking. This is one of two plays that have been touring in 22

:22:13.:22:18.

local authority areas will stop some like Edinburgh may have plenty of

:22:19.:22:21.

Theatre on their doorstep, but bringing it into the school is

:22:22.:22:26.

important. Having the opportunity to have high-quality drama productions

:22:27.:22:30.

in school, it just opens up all possibilities for learning in the

:22:31.:22:33.

classroom, and it helps us to tackle themes that might otherwise be ready

:22:34.:22:38.

difficult. For others, it will be the first experience of theatre, so

:22:39.:22:41.

it is important they are equipped from the start. It was a fantastic

:22:42.:22:47.

show, I really enjoyed it, and probably my favourite bit was when

:22:48.:22:52.

Sean stepped in the pool, because he had really nice Nike trainers on and

:22:53.:22:56.

he stepped into, and he was ready upset and it was really funny. I

:22:57.:23:01.

really enjoyed it, and I have never seen anything like it. It is really

:23:02.:23:04.

clever the way they used the shoes in the boxes and I would be happy to

:23:05.:23:09.

see it again. But the tragedy is, the tragedy of it all is... This is

:23:10.:23:13.

just the beginning of how the programme should bring theatre to

:23:14.:23:17.

15,000 children over the next few months. The ambition is for every

:23:18.:23:22.

child in Scotland to see at least one show like this in their nursery

:23:23.:23:30.

or primary school. This may sound like a bit of children's Theatre,

:23:31.:23:32.

but it's true! A King penguin at Edinburgh zoo has

:23:33.:23:34.

been made a Brigadier His first job in his promoted role

:23:35.:23:49.

of Brigadier. He inspected the soldiers of the King of Norway's

:23:50.:23:53.

guard who had taken the time out from the Edinburgh military Tattoo

:23:54.:23:57.

to present the award to him. An Edinburgh Penguin first became the

:23:58.:24:01.

mascot of the guards in 1972, because there was a certain

:24:02.:24:07.

affinity. The colours are the same, as is black-and-white, black and

:24:08.:24:10.

silver, and he is also black and silvery white in his colours, but he

:24:11.:24:14.

looks like our shoulders -- our soldiers, the stands firm and Paul,

:24:15.:24:18.

and some people say he also will looks a little bit funny like when

:24:19.:24:21.

and some people say he also will we march. During the soldiers last

:24:22.:24:24.

visit, the Penguin became a night, this time they are also making him

:24:25.:24:31.

Baron of a Norwegian island that he's not letting it go to his head.

:24:32.:24:37.

He'd not have any stardom, he has let go to his head. When he has the

:24:38.:24:41.

music or the singing of the Kings guard, he knows that is meant for

:24:42.:24:44.

him, or we think he knows that is meant to him and he walked right up

:24:45.:24:50.

to the front of the enclosure. So what is next, Emperor penguin? This

:24:51.:24:54.

is going to be a major challenge for the protocol in the royal Palace in

:24:55.:24:59.

Norway, I'm sure. But he has been promoted, the only Baron in Norway,

:25:00.:25:03.

so before they come in four years' time, they are going to have the

:25:04.:25:07.

work out what the next move up the chain is. After the excitement of

:25:08.:25:13.

today, now Brigadier and Aaron Penguin has been enjoying a relaxing

:25:14.:25:17.

swim, and we are told that later as a special treaty will be tucking

:25:18.:25:19.

into his favourite meal of sprats. It started off a bit miserable for

:25:20.:25:32.

many parts of the country, but it did improve. This was the scene in

:25:33.:25:36.

Berg Gallery this afternoon, some sunshine coming through and

:25:37.:25:41.

certainly lovely sunshine to end the day for most. You can see more

:25:42.:25:44.

clearly on the satellite and radar picture, the cloud will sing away,

:25:45.:25:49.

any showers fading. Probably the best of the weather right now.

:25:50.:25:55.

Tonight, it stays dry the most, some clear condition so chilly in the

:25:56.:25:58.

countryside but watch what happens in the south. The cloud builds and

:25:59.:26:01.

the rain arrives, a hint of what is on the way tomorrow. Overnight

:26:02.:26:04.

temperatures where we have the clear condition is perhaps down to 7

:26:05.:26:08.

degrees but elsewhere holding in double digits. And tomorrow is a

:26:09.:26:14.

soggy start across the South, heavy rain through Dumfries and Galloway

:26:15.:26:17.

in towards Lanarkshire and the Borders and moving northwards,

:26:18.:26:19.

though turning lighter and more patchy as it does so. For overall, a

:26:20.:26:26.

cloudy day, damp at times. By mid-afternoon, cloudy with continued

:26:27.:26:30.

outbreaks of rain. Temperatures around 17 to 19 Celsius, quite a

:26:31.:26:34.

humid feel at times. The further north you are, less likely to see as

:26:35.:26:38.

much rain as areas further south but still cloudy and damp and fairly

:26:39.:26:42.

extensive hill fog at times as well. For the Northern Isles, reasonably

:26:43.:26:45.

dry, brightness around, but some rain coming way later. In fact, as

:26:46.:26:50.

we head into the evening, a period of Thunder Remainer is likely across

:26:51.:26:53.

the South, pushing through the Borders, towards the capital, in

:26:54.:26:57.

towards Angus and indeed Aberdeenshire. It is brief but packs

:26:58.:27:04.

a punch for stock gone by Wednesday, lingering for a while to Shetland

:27:05.:27:08.

but it goes here to amend the most of the country Wednesday looks set

:27:09.:27:13.

fair, dry, bright and warm, 19 to 20 Celsius. It doesn't last. Thursday

:27:14.:27:18.

is a cloudy day, but not too wet. If you showers around, not as wet as we

:27:19.:27:22.

are likely to see tomorrow but it certainly looks as though after

:27:23.:27:25.

tomorrow's disappointing day, Wednesday will be the best day this

:27:26.:27:27.

week. Now, a reminder of

:27:28.:27:34.

tonight's main news. The first ballot papers had been

:27:35.:27:40.

sent out for in the Labour leader contest. Kezia Dougdale endorsed

:27:41.:27:45.

Jeremy Corbyn's opponent, Owen Smith.
