Tonight on Reporting Scotland: The First Minister claims leaving

:00:00.:00:07.

the EU will cost the Scottish economy billions of pounds.

:00:08.:00:10.

Opponents say independence is a greater risk.

:00:55.:01:08.

analysis published today But the Conservatives say

:01:09.:01:13.

the figures are a smokescreen - and Ms Sturgeon should rule out

:01:14.:01:17.

another independence vote Here's our political correspondent

:01:18.:01:19.

Nick Eardley. What will leaving the EU mean for

:01:20.:01:31.

Scotland's economy? For businesses and shoppers like these ones. Today,

:01:32.:01:35.

the Scottish Government published analysis of how bad it thinks it

:01:36.:01:41.

could be. Today's publication illustrates is that whatever the

:01:42.:01:44.

final form of Brexit, whatever Brexit means, Brexit turns out to

:01:45.:01:49.

actually mean in practice, the old argument that the UK somehow

:01:50.:01:53.

delivers final security for Scotland no longer holds water. The figures

:01:54.:01:58.

published today suggest the value of goods and services produced in

:01:59.:02:01.

Scotland, known as GDP, could fall. But there is quite a range in how

:02:02.:02:06.

much by. By 2030, the hit could be ?1. 7

:02:07.:02:11.

billion per year, if we keep good trade links with the EU. But it

:02:12.:02:15.

could be as much as ?11 billion in the worst case scenario. The amount

:02:16.:02:19.

of tax coming in is also projected to fall.

:02:20.:02:24.

By between 1. 7% and 3. 7 billion. We have put out a range of different

:02:25.:02:28.

assessments and taken the Scottish impact of those assessments. I hope

:02:29.:02:32.

they're all overblown but we have to be realistic about the situation we

:02:33.:02:36.

find ourselves in in. The First Minister's clear she thinks Brexit

:02:37.:02:40.

will be bad for Scotland. But she's also pre-empting figures tomorrow on

:02:41.:02:46.

the state of our economy. It's expected opponents will use them to

:02:47.:02:50.

say Scotland is better off in the UK even outside the EU. They're going

:02:51.:02:53.

to show the significant challenges in the Scottish economy and they'll

:02:54.:02:56.

also show the dividend that we have in Scotland from being part of the

:02:57.:03:00.

UK. If she's talking today about security and stability, then she can

:03:01.:03:03.

do one thing that will give us that security and stability in Scotland

:03:04.:03:05.

and that's take a second referendum off the table, get back to the job

:03:06.:03:09.

in hand. Thank you all very much. The First Minister says she will now

:03:10.:03:13.

appoint a Brexit Minister and repeated her belief another

:03:14.:03:15.

independence vote is highly likely. An oil rig that ran aground

:03:16.:03:22.

on the west coast of Lewis has been re-floated and is now being towed

:03:23.:03:25.

to the other side of the island. The Transocean winner was pulled off

:03:26.:03:28.

rocks at high tide last night after spending two weeks stuck

:03:29.:03:31.

on the shore at Dalmore bay. It's now been towed by two tugs

:03:32.:03:34.

to Broad Bay near Stornoway Our reporter Huw Williams

:03:35.:03:37.

is at Broad Bay for us tonight. Yes, after two weeks of waiting for

:03:38.:03:51.

the rig to leave the West Coast of Lewis, tonight we are at Broad Bay

:03:52.:03:55.

on the east side of the island waiting for it to arrive here. The

:03:56.:04:00.

journey began at high tide almost exactly 20 hours ago, so it's on its

:04:01.:04:05.

way. Under tow since last night, the

:04:06.:04:12.

17,000 ton Transdgs ocean Winner being brought to a much more

:04:13.:04:15.

sheltered anchorage on the east side of Lewis.

:04:16.:04:19.

Two powerful tugs had been waiting in the dark until the rig floated on

:04:20.:04:24.

the high tide off rocks that had kept it trapped for a fortnight.

:04:25.:04:31.

Then the tow began. At last, the confirmation everyone

:04:32.:04:35.

had been waiting for. We are under way...

:04:36.:04:39.

Yeah, we are moving! We calculated the rig would come off

:04:40.:04:43.

at exactly the same angle on the beach, that happened and yeah, we

:04:44.:04:50.

are very pleased that all the hard work by lots of men and women to

:04:51.:04:54.

calculate how we should do the work proved to be correct. But the rig is

:04:55.:05:00.

still listing in the water, sorting that out is taking time, slowing

:05:01.:05:04.

everything down. I spoke to the salvage master this

:05:05.:05:09.

morning and there are still challenges. We still have a list on

:05:10.:05:14.

the rig. That's up to ten degrees at times. This morning they've been

:05:15.:05:22.

looking at pressurising the tanks, moving the ballast and trying to

:05:23.:05:25.

reduce the amount of movement of the rig itself. It looks as though the

:05:26.:05:30.

rig won't be at anchor until the early hours of tomorrow morning. The

:05:31.:05:34.

main priority is to get her safely on the anchors and then it will be a

:05:35.:05:38.

period of doing damage assessment. Teams of other people will come in

:05:39.:05:42.

now, divers, people going into the water in that area trying to assess

:05:43.:05:46.

how much damage there is and to see if we can do any temporary repairs

:05:47.:05:52.

in the area. No answers yet on why the rig ran aground. That's the

:05:53.:05:56.

subject of an independent inquiry by the marine accidents investigation

:05:57.:06:00.

branch. The MAIB have been in touch with us

:06:01.:06:05.

and asked us to provide them with, for example, part of the tow bridle.

:06:06.:06:13.

We will do that once we get the BroadBay, it wasn't safe at Dalmore

:06:14.:06:19.

beach so anything they ask us for, if we can, we will provide it. This

:06:20.:06:24.

evening, preparations continue, setting out the anchorage points for

:06:25.:06:31.

when the rig arrives. But that, of course, won'ting r be

:06:32.:06:57.

Soldier from The Royal Regiment of Scotland has died. Our reporter is

:06:58.:07:09.

there for us tonight. What more can you tell us about the circumstances

:07:10.:07:10.

surrounding this. Ets Are sketchy. We do know

:07:11.:07:20.

yesterday evening there was a night firing exercise here at the base.

:07:21.:07:24.

Scheduled to last five hours t started at 9.00 and was due to end

:07:25.:07:29.

2.00am. About quarter past 11 last night there was a report that a

:07:30.:07:33.

soldier from the Royal Regiment of Scotland had suffered a severe head

:07:34.:07:38.

wound as part of that live firing exercise and tragically he died at

:07:39.:07:41.

the scene. One pretsunamis there will be an

:07:42.:07:45.

inquiry into this. -- presumes there will be an inquiry into this. What

:07:46.:07:49.

form will it take? We know it will be led by the local police force

:07:50.:07:53.

here at Northumbria Police, but obviously the Ministry of Defence

:07:54.:07:57.

will be involved, as well. We understand the Ministry of Defence

:07:58.:08:01.

Safety Authority will be involved in that, as well. This is an absolutely

:08:02.:08:08.

huge military base. It covers an area of 60,000 acres, beautiful

:08:09.:08:11.

countryside in Northumbria, but of course it's a key part of the

:08:12.:08:21.

British military's training. 30,000 soldiers a year will go through

:08:22.:08:26.

their training at the base, partly including live firing training and

:08:27.:08:31.

at any one time there are 1600 soldiers going through their

:08:32.:08:35.

training at this base at the moment. We have had some response from the

:08:36.:08:39.

Government. The armed forces Minister has said what happened here

:08:40.:08:44.

last night is a tragedy. He said that deaths in training for the

:08:45.:08:47.

military are rare but when they happen every death is a tragedy. We

:08:48.:08:52.

should remind ourselves that it's only over a month since a Scottish

:08:53.:09:01.

soldier died on military exercise in the Brecon Beacons, he was based at

:09:02.:09:05.

the largest military base in western Europe. No doubt, more details of

:09:06.:09:09.

what happened here will emerge in the next few hours and days.

:09:10.:09:12.

Thank you very much. Britain's record breaking

:09:13.:09:19.

Olympic Team arrived home from Rio today on a specially

:09:20.:09:21.

chartered gold-nosed plane. They were met at Heathrow

:09:22.:09:22.

by friends, family and fans. Our reporter Lisa Summers

:09:23.:09:25.

was there too and caught up with some of the Scots

:09:26.:09:30.

who were medallists at the Games. After all the hard work, the reward.

:09:31.:09:39.

The tweets from some of our medallists speak for themselves as

:09:40.:09:44.

they enjoyed the flight home. Shortly after 10.00am this morning

:09:45.:09:50.

the plane touched down at Heathrow. As they filtered through, hub

:09:51.:09:55.

hundreds of family, friends and fans lived the arrivals hall to greet the

:09:56.:09:59.

record-breaking Olympic team. Of the 366 athletes who went out to Rio,

:10:00.:10:04.

130 have returned with medals, it's an amazing achievement and as they

:10:05.:10:08.

come home today time to bask in that success. It feels amazing. I think

:10:09.:10:13.

it's sunk in more coming back here, everyone's been supportive and

:10:14.:10:16.

excited. We live in a bubble over there for the last few weeks. It's

:10:17.:10:21.

good to be back. It's been eight days since we finished racing, so

:10:22.:10:25.

starting to feel a bit strange. I have not trained once. I am looking

:10:26.:10:28.

forward to getting home and back in a routine. It was a Games when

:10:29.:10:35.

history was made. There was a bronze in the 400 metres relay. Ellie was

:10:36.:10:39.

only a year old when a Scottish track and field athlete last won a

:10:40.:10:43.

medal. I was delighted with my Games and it was nice because afterwards

:10:44.:10:47.

we found out that it was the medal that took us over the tally from

:10:48.:10:51.

London and I found out it was the first medal from a Scottish athlete

:10:52.:10:55.

for years. All these stats came out after that made it more special.

:10:56.:10:59.

They're going away... It wasn't going to be gold for Katherine

:11:00.:11:04.

Grainger, still, five medals in five consecutive Olympics, what's not to

:11:05.:11:08.

like about that? But it had been a hard slog just to get there. Once

:11:09.:11:12.

you are in the start line of the Olympics final everything is up for

:11:13.:11:16.

grabs and I raced in the way that I only know how to and you go out and

:11:17.:11:20.

take the race on and see what happens. One more question, have you

:11:21.:11:24.

another one in you? I haven't said anything yet but it's probably

:11:25.:11:29.

unlikely. For now, time to enjoy the glory as

:11:30.:11:33.

-- glory as they come back down to earth. Before long the hard work

:11:34.:11:34.

starts again with Tokyo in mind. You're watching Reporting

:11:35.:11:41.

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

:11:42.:11:42.

programme: The junior footballer whose hat trick's

:11:43.:11:44.

made him an internet hit. And the band played

:11:45.:11:47.

waltzing Matilda, singer Doctors have issued a warning

:11:48.:11:48.

of the dangers of "bagpipe lung", after a piper died from a disease

:11:49.:12:02.

thought to have been caused by mould and funghi

:12:03.:12:05.

lurking in his instruments. They say the moist environment

:12:06.:12:07.

inside bagpipes can lead to the growth of substances

:12:08.:12:10.

which can harm human health. In full flow on Glasgow Green.

:12:11.:12:27.

Competitors at the World Pipe Band Championships a few weeks ago. But

:12:28.:12:31.

were those musicians inadvertently damaging their health?

:12:32.:12:42.

Doctors say playing the pipes every day was probably fatal for one man.

:12:43.:12:50.

In this particular case it was noted that the bagpipes were not

:12:51.:12:54.

particularly clean. The cleaning brush had not been used that often.

:12:55.:13:04.

So, I think that was the reason why the various parts of the bagpipes

:13:05.:13:08.

were contaminated with yeast and mould. So, yes, clean your

:13:09.:13:11.

instruments. Experts say it was a rare case.

:13:12.:13:21.

But Craig who plays with the Red Hot Chilly Pipers says some need to

:13:22.:13:24.

brush up on their cleaning technique. I would remove those and

:13:25.:13:33.

I would power diluted Dettol with water down right into the bag, cork

:13:34.:13:40.

off any open areas and give it a good swoosh around to get into the

:13:41.:13:45.

bag. How worried should pipers be? We have been thinking about water

:13:46.:13:49.

traps... Cleaning pipe bags is easier if they're synthetic, like

:13:50.:13:54.

these on sale at Glasgow's College of Piping. Bagpipes have evolved

:13:55.:14:01.

over centuries. Modern medicine now tells us that they may pose a

:14:02.:14:05.

potential health risk. But it's a risk that's easily tackled through

:14:06.:14:06.

good hygiene. A lorry driver, who shook a newborn

:14:07.:14:12.

baby so violently it was left permanently brain damaged,

stage. Avoiding a 3-goal defeat tonight will secure a place among

:17:56.:17:59.

the European elite. When you talk about the great clubs of European

:18:00.:18:03.

football, you're talking about Barcelona, Real Madrid, AC Milan,

:18:04.:18:08.

and Celtic is synonymous with those clubs. If you are talking big clubs

:18:09.:18:13.

historically in Europe and a team that has won the European Cup, you

:18:14.:18:19.

talk about Glasgow Celtic soul to be back among the echelons of teams is

:18:20.:18:25.

a great honour for Celtic. It is an honour that comes with great

:18:26.:18:29.

financial rewards, just by getting through tonight, Celtic will have

:18:30.:18:32.

earned ?2.6 million and for playing in the group stage they will get

:18:33.:18:38.

another ?10.3 million and that is added to television money and gate

:18:39.:18:42.

receipts in the region of ?7 million and Celtic are already looking at

:18:43.:18:47.

banking nearly ?30 million. That is before you consider prize money of

:18:48.:18:51.

?1.3 million for a group stage win but is there any danger that the

:18:52.:18:56.

Israeli champions could deny them these pictures? There is always a

:18:57.:19:00.

chance and Celtic will be aware of that, especially if they score early

:19:01.:19:05.

and it will be a nervous time. Overall, there was enough there, I

:19:06.:19:10.

saw Celtic last week, they can go there and score as well and

:19:11.:19:14.

hopefully that will be the case, not just for Celtic but all of Scottish

:19:15.:19:18.

football, we would all love to see a Scottish team in the Champions

:19:19.:19:22.

League again. A promising outcome in the promised land and a return to

:19:23.:19:27.

football's own promise land will be assured.

:19:28.:19:29.

At the other end of the football spectrum a player from the junior

:19:30.:19:32.

Tam Hanlon of Pollock Juniors has become an internet hit after scoring

:19:33.:19:36.

It is a cup tie were Pollock will beat Nielsen by 5-1 but three of

:19:37.:19:51.

them come from 34-year-old Tam Hanlon. The right back has been

:19:52.:19:54.

playing junior football for 15 years and has one big chance at the pro

:19:55.:19:58.

game was a season with Albion Rovers. So who has in fire --

:19:59.:20:06.

inspired Tam. Steven Gerrard, David Beckham. I never really compare

:20:07.:20:12.

myself with anyone. I will have a go at it. The gaffer ended up taking me

:20:13.:20:25.

off. I was gutted. So what is the professional verdict of Hanlon's

:20:26.:20:33.

goals. That is outrageous. Technically it was an unbelievable

:20:34.:20:37.

hat-trick and he deserves so much credit for it. There are some very

:20:38.:20:42.

good players in junior football without a doubt and you see a lot of

:20:43.:20:46.

junior players now getting chosen by the smaller clubs in Scotland would

:20:47.:20:51.

you have been happy with that? I would have been really happy. I

:20:52.:20:55.

could not have scored it. I do not have the technique to do that. The

:20:56.:21:00.

second goal was incredible. Heady praise indeed for Hanlon. He has

:21:01.:21:06.

been unbearable in training and games. He wants nights off and

:21:07.:21:11.

The singer-songwriter Eric Bogle left Scotland for Australia

:21:38.:21:39.

There, he wrote two of the most famous anti-war songs of all time.

:21:40.:21:43.

No Man's Land - also known as The Green Fields of France -

:21:44.:21:46.

And The Band Played Waltzing Matilda.

Now, a reminder of tonight's main news...

:26:35.:26:35.

The Scottish Government says leaving the EU could cost the economy

:26:36.:26:38.

But the Conservatives say another independence vote

:26:39.:26:41.

should be ruled out, to ensure stability.

:26:42.:26:43.

Team GB have arrived home from Rio to a heroes' welcome,

:26:44.:26:46.

bringing with them a record-breaking haul of 67 medals - 27 of them gold.

:26:47.:26:56.

And the oil rig that ran aground in Lewis has been told to the other

side of the island. It spent two weeks stuck on the shore.

:27:04.:27:06.

Our late bulletin is just after the ten o'clock news.

:27:07.:27:10.

Until then, from everyone on the team - right

:27:11.:27:12.

across the country - have a very good evening.
