Plummeting oil and gas revenues leave Scotland's economy nearly

:00:00.:00:07.

Nicola Sturgeon says continued growth onshore is the answer -

:00:08.:00:14.

the UK government says it shows Scotland is better off in the union.

:00:15.:00:23.

Claims that hundreds of families are being exploited by rogue

:00:24.:00:28.

We really felt quite helpless. You are just a simple porn and you

:00:29.:00:38.

cannot do anything about it. It just felt unfair to me that someone could

:00:39.:00:40.

do this and get away with it. We have the first of

:00:41.:00:43.

two special reports. Tributes are paid to the Scottish

soldier who died after being shot during a live firing

exercise in Northumberland. Celtic are bound for the grand stage

:00:50.:00:53.

of the Uefa Champions League. And Brendan Rodgers says

:00:54.:00:58.

Celtic's qualification for the Champions League is great

:00:59.:01:00.

for Scottish football. The Scottish government

:01:01.:01:15.

is spending nearly ?15 billion more than it's bringing

:01:16.:01:19.

in, in tax. In percentage terms it means

:01:20.:01:23.

the deficit here has climbed to more than twice the level of the UK

:01:24.:01:25.

as a whole. Much of the increase is as a result

:01:26.:01:28.

of falling oil revenues, but the figures are key

:01:29.:01:30.

in the constitutional debate. Those against independence claim

:01:31.:01:33.

it's a financial reality check, whilst pro-independence campaigners

:01:34.:01:37.

claim things would improve if Scotland was in charge

:01:38.:01:40.

of its own economy. We'll hear more on the political

:01:41.:01:45.

fall out from Brian Taylor in a moment, but first here's

:01:46.:01:49.

Douglas Fraser with the numbers. These numbers help us understand how

:01:50.:01:55.

much Scots pay in tax and how much So, in the year to April, Scots paid

:01:56.:01:58.

nearly ?54 billion in tax. Almost quarter of that

:01:59.:02:03.

was income tax. Nearly ?69 billion was spent

:02:04.:02:05.

on Scotland by national So the difference last year -

:02:06.:02:13.

nearly ?15 billion. More than a third of that spending

:02:14.:02:20.

was on pensions and benefits, Now, it's OK for government to run

:02:21.:02:25.

a deficit, but it has to be able The Treasury in London wants

:02:26.:02:30.

to lower the deficit that ballooned after the financial crash,

:02:31.:02:34.

and last year, it got to 4% In Scotland, the deficit was nearly

:02:35.:02:37.

10% of total economic output - more than twice the scale

:02:38.:02:49.

of the UK overspend. In Scotland, government spending

:02:50.:02:54.

was ?12,800 per head, while across the UK,

:02:55.:03:01.

the spend was ?1,200 lower. And what's going on to explain this

:03:02.:03:04.

rising deficit here, Most types of tax revenue keep

and profits plummeting, The results over time,

:03:22.:03:30.

look like this - a small UK surplus at the turn of the century,

:03:31.:03:35.

a deep worsening with the financial crash, and while austerity has

:03:36.:03:38.

driven the UK deficit towards 4%, the Scottish overspend

:03:39.:03:41.

has been getting worse. but of course these figures have

:03:42.:03:50.

been pounced on by those opposed to independence,

:03:51.:03:56.

Brian Taylor, what's been The reaction has been intriguing. It

:03:57.:04:08.

depends on your stance. This is about sums, but it has been

:04:09.:04:13.

political from the outset from the early days when it was deployed by a

:04:14.:04:19.

conservative Scottish office, against devolved self-governance.

:04:20.:04:23.

But today, the argument features Independence and also Brexit.

:04:24.:04:28.

Cutting the cloth to suit, Nicola Sturgeon at Mitsubishi challenging

:04:29.:04:35.

figures. But relies on the growth onshore, like this leather factory

:04:36.:04:39.

in Glasgow which winds global orders from airlines and others. The

:04:40.:04:44.

message of these figures is, the low oil price and tax cuts to support

:04:45.:04:50.

the industry has had an impact. But the fundamentals of the Scottish

:04:51.:04:56.

economy are sound and strong. It has grown by more than the fall in oil

:04:57.:05:00.

revenues. Let's make sure we have the best environment to continue to

:05:01.:05:04.

grow our economy and that is why I am worried about Brexit, because it

:05:05.:05:08.

will make the task so much more difficult. But onshore growth was

:05:09.:05:13.

almost wiped out by a sharp fall in the North Sea tax take. Dry

:05:14.:05:20.

statistics which mask human costs. Myself, like thousands of others,

:05:21.:05:23.

hundreds and thousands of others around the world lost our jobs. I

:05:24.:05:27.

was made redundant at the end of May. It was fantastic work, over the

:05:28.:05:35.

years I learned so much and enjoyed working with many interesting

:05:36.:05:37.

people. Then it came to an end, which was a big surprise. But after

:05:38.:05:44.

decade in the oil industry, both Roberts and Russell are retraining

:05:45.:05:47.

as teachers through this initiative in Aberdeen. Everyone wants growth

:05:48.:05:52.

onshore and off, but the Scottish Secretary said it was time to forget

:05:53.:05:57.

independence. We have got the very challenging prospect in negotiating

:05:58.:06:01.

Brexit. We need to get the best possible deal for Scotland and the

:06:02.:06:07.

rest of the United Kingdom. But what these figures confirm, is the really

:06:08.:06:11.

important union for everybody in Scotland is the union with the rest

:06:12.:06:15.

of the United Kingdom, rather than being part of the European Union. No

:06:16.:06:21.

one is giving up on the North Sea, but with Scotland still in the red,

:06:22.:06:23.

the aim is to diversify and grow. How will these figures be wielded in

:06:24.:06:32.

the debates about independence and about independence in Europe,

:06:33.:06:36.

potentially? It is about both and its substantial element in those

:06:37.:06:41.

two. European Union rules says a member state should keep its deficit

:06:42.:06:48.

below 3% of face possible sanctions. Scotland's deficit is 10%. Nicola

:06:49.:06:53.

Sturgeon shrugs that. She said these figures are not the starting point

:06:54.:06:57.

for independence, not the point to which Scotland would move towards.

:06:58.:07:01.

There would be different calculations, the allocation of debt

:07:02.:07:05.

with the UK Government. This was not how Scotland would look under

:07:06.:07:10.

independence. European Union members, European Union officials

:07:11.:07:14.

can see like everyone else, that Scotland's economy was fundamentally

:07:15.:07:17.

strong. And she said she wasn't seeking to apply a renewed European

:07:18.:07:25.

Union membership, she was trying to hold onto the existing membership.

:07:26.:07:30.

All of which is a case she is making very strongly. Just to add or borrow

:07:31.:07:37.

the word she used, economically the future for Scotland looks

:07:38.:07:38.

challenging. An investigation by BBC Scotland has

:07:39.:07:42.

revealed that some of the most vulnerable people in Scotland

:07:43.:07:45.

are being exploited by rogue landlords in the midst

:07:46.:07:47.

of the First Minister's constituency And that some landlords

:07:48.:07:50.

are continuing to work in the Govanhill area of Glasgow

:07:51.:07:52.

despite being officially struck off. Our political correspondent

:07:53.:07:55.

Lucy Adams has the first in a series Here in the heart of Nicola

:07:56.:08:04.

Sturgeon's constituency, communities and cultures come together to create

:08:05.:08:09.

a neighbourhood unlike any other. Decades of immigration from Ireland,

:08:10.:08:12.

south Asia and Eastern Europe have shaped Govanhill. Its problems can

:08:13.:08:18.

be found in other Scottish cities, so what, if anything, makes this

:08:19.:08:24.

place different? It has always been an area that attracted migrants, new

:08:25.:08:30.

Glaswegians. It has always been a welcoming area. It has always been a

:08:31.:08:34.

reasonably priced area to buy property in, if you were a

:08:35.:08:39.

first-time buyer. Over the years, it has changed more into private rented

:08:40.:08:45.

and I think that is where people, some of the landlords, not all, but

:08:46.:08:49.

a lot of them are not willing to invest in the structure of the

:08:50.:08:54.

property. Overcrowding and neglect have taken their toll, leading the

:08:55.:08:59.

council and Scottish Government to launch a unique ?10 million project

:09:00.:09:03.

to buy out properties from the worst landlords and take them into public

:09:04.:09:08.

ownership. As you can see, this flat has been affected with rot, and we

:09:09.:09:14.

are finding a number of properties like this. Govanhill Housing

:09:15.:09:19.

Association is using the money to transform tenements. This

:09:20.:09:31.

corner is at the heart of that project, aimed at tackling

:09:32.:09:35.

regeneration and landlords. But the BBC has learned that almost half of

:09:36.:09:38.

the properties bought were from those who already owned the flat

:09:39.:09:40.

they lived in, the very people the project hoped to keep. The question

:09:41.:09:43.

is, whether this project in its current format is really working. It

:09:44.:09:47.

wasn't the plan. The Housing act was flawed because it didn't include

:09:48.:09:51.

compulsory purchase orders. The idea was to attack the rogue landlords,

:09:52.:09:57.

bringing down the area. Without the compulsory purchase orders, and to

:09:58.:10:05.

achieve the targets, they are turning to people who want to sell

:10:06.:10:11.

just to move out. Was the aim to buy up so many owner occupied

:10:12.:10:15.

properties? I don't think it necessarily was. But if it is within

:10:16.:10:20.

the target area and it adds to what we are trying to do, we will support

:10:21.:10:28.

but going forward. There are eight properties close, you need to have

:10:29.:10:34.

five. It enables you to manage the block. As the housing project

:10:35.:10:40.

continues in Govanhill, the BBC has learned a number of rogue landlords

:10:41.:10:45.

are continuing to practice, despite being deregistered. And a number of

:10:46.:10:50.

cases are not being pursued because witnesses are too afraid to speak

:10:51.:10:58.

up. So, who are these landlords? This man was deregistered as a

:10:59.:11:02.

landlord in May after taking ?7,000 worth of deposits from tenants. His

:11:03.:11:07.

letting agency was dissolved earlier this year, but the BBC has learned

:11:08.:11:12.

the business in Govanhill has stayed open. He has now been reported to

:11:13.:11:17.

prosecutors for alleged fraud, theft and acting as a landlord while

:11:18.:11:23.

unregistered. This man paid almost ?1400 up front to him for a flat he

:11:24.:11:29.

never set foot inside. The student from Bulgaria, one court case

:11:30.:11:33.

against him, but still hasn't got his money back. We felt quite

:11:34.:11:39.

helpless. You are just a simple pawn and you cannot do anything about it.

:11:40.:11:43.

It just felt unfair to me that someone could do this and get away

:11:44.:11:49.

with it for so long. He told the BBC he denies the charges and is

:11:50.:11:54.

appealing his deregistration. Hundreds of families each year have

:11:55.:11:58.

suffered from scams by a range of landlords and from housing beneath a

:11:59.:12:03.

tolerable standard. The worst ones are the ones where children are

:12:04.:12:07.

involved. New babies not having hot water, you just can't have that. You

:12:08.:12:12.

hear the stories about children with bedbugs and these landlords just

:12:13.:12:15.

raking it in and making this money on the back of exploiting someone.

:12:16.:12:21.

It is incredulous, there are these organisations working against it and

:12:22.:12:26.

so slow to bring it to justice. Much is being done in this extraordinary

:12:27.:12:30.

neighbourhood to kick-start regeneration, but for now, children

:12:31.:12:33.

continue to live in substandard housing, while so-called rogue

:12:34.:12:35.

landlords reap the profits. Tributes have been paid

:12:36.:12:42.

to a soldier who was shot dead during a training exercise

:12:43.:12:45.

in Northumberland on Monday. He's been named as 24-year-old

:12:46.:12:47.

Private Conor McPherson from Paisley who was a member

:12:48.:12:49.

of The Black Watch and based at Fort George in the Highlands,

:12:50.:12:52.

from where Jackie O'Brien reports. Private Conor McPherson from Paisley

:12:53.:13:01.

was killed during night-time training at a firing range within

:13:02.:13:06.

the vast Otterburn training area in Northumberland. The young soldier

:13:07.:13:10.

was shot in the head and pronounced dead at the scene. In a tribute to

:13:11.:13:14.

the 24-year-old, his commanding officer in The Black Watch battalion

:13:15.:13:16.

said... But his troupe rationed his third

:13:17.:13:29.

was to his parents and sister and was part of a very close-knit

:13:30.:13:35.

family. It is tragic for his family, friends and colleagues at Fort

:13:36.:13:39.

George, who are brave men and women in the Armed Forces who put their

:13:40.:13:42.

lives at risk every day. Sometimes when they are on combat missions you

:13:43.:13:47.

can be prepared for the difficult phone call or difficult

:13:48.:13:49.

announcement. But when it is a training exercise it is even worse

:13:50.:13:53.

for the people with him at the time and his family who have now lost a

:13:54.:13:59.

loved one. The Black Watch soldiers seen here during a recent royal

:14:00.:14:02.

visit left there for George base last week in these new armoured

:14:03.:14:06.

vehicles to take part in the exercise, Wessex storm. They have

:14:07.:14:10.

stopped that Otterburn for life firing practice on routes to

:14:11.:14:15.

Salisbury Plain. Outside for George today, life goes on as normal, as

:14:16.:14:21.

tourists continue to visit this old fortification. Within these walls

:14:22.:14:26.

where The Black Watch battalion is based, there will be sadness and

:14:27.:14:30.

shock over the tragic death of a fellow soldier. These guys come in,

:14:31.:14:35.

they are not far away from the village. It is devastating news. The

:14:36.:14:42.

Army have a lot of questions to answer, why was this allowed to

:14:43.:14:48.

happen on a training exercise. A major investigation is continuing to

:14:49.:14:52.

establish exactly what did happen on Monday night, but at this stage,

:14:53.:14:56.

Northumbria Police said they believed the soldier's death was a

:14:57.:14:58.

tragic accident. The Deputy First Minister has

:14:59.:15:02.

criticised the owners of the oil rig that ran aground on the West Coast

:15:03.:15:05.

of Lewis for transporting The Transocean Winner is now towed

:15:06.:15:08.

to Broad Bay on the island's other Huw Williams watched

:15:09.:15:12.

the rig's progress. This phase of the story is coming to

:15:13.:15:27.

an end. The Transocean Winner has been under tow since high tide on

:15:28.:15:33.

Monday night, but problems with the structure listing in the water means

:15:34.:15:37.

it has had to be towed a much slower than planned and so the journey has

:15:38.:15:42.

taken longer than originally predicted. Broadway should provide a

:15:43.:15:47.

more sheltered anchorage for it than the beach on the west side of Lewis

:15:48.:15:52.

where it originally ran aground. Tonight the Scottish government are

:15:53.:15:56.

asking why it was even at sea just over two weeks ago when such bad

:15:57.:16:02.

weather had been widely predicted? The transport connections were

:16:03.:16:05.

significantly restricted that we can and it was obvious from the Met

:16:06.:16:09.

Office warnings there was going to be a significant storm to contain

:16:10.:16:14.

with. There is a duty of care on those responsible presiding over

:16:15.:16:19.

these operators, principally the owners, to decide whether it was

:16:20.:16:23.

wise to undertake this operation. The plan is to spend the next three

:16:24.:16:28.

weeks assessing the structure of the rig and whether any temporary

:16:29.:16:32.

repairs are needed before experts decide what to do next. The Marine

:16:33.:16:37.

Accident Investigation Branch has already begun its inquiry, but there

:16:38.:16:42.

are wider political questions. Should their once again be an

:16:43.:16:47.

emergency tug based at Stornoway? These questions will not go away any

:16:48.:16:49.

These questions will not go away any time soon.

:16:50.:16:51.

Syrian officials have appealed to Scotland,

:16:52.:16:53.

to help save the ancient city of Palmyra.

:16:54.:16:55.

Many of the famous Syrian monuments were destroyed

:16:56.:16:57.

Now the city's been retaken, the country's chief curator's come

:16:58.:17:01.

to a cultural summit in Edinburgh to call for international help.

:17:02.:17:04.

Palmyra's monuments are nearly 2000 years old. These were a global

:17:05.:17:19.

tourist attraction before Syria's Civil War. This is a Roman temple of

:17:20.:17:27.

Bal. Look at it now. Isis militia destroyed many sites because they

:17:28.:17:34.

were symbols of idolatry. Behind this we have geological extremism.

:17:35.:17:42.

What happened in Syria under control of Isis, including in Palmeiro, it

:17:43.:17:48.

was a disastrous situation. His colleague and 14 other curators have

:17:49.:17:51.

been killed protecting their cultural heritage. Each day I have

:17:52.:18:03.

bad news about destruction, not only of the cultural heritage, but the

:18:04.:18:07.

difficulty for other life, but we refused to leave Syria for this

:18:08.:18:13.

reason. Palmyra has been recaptured and there are plans to rebuild. The

:18:14.:18:18.

professor has come to Edinburgh to seek international help and stop the

:18:19.:18:22.

black market in looted artefacts. We need contacts, expertise, because we

:18:23.:18:32.

have a lot of traffic in coming from that area. He is seeking expert

:18:33.:18:39.

support from the area and beyond so that one day these wonders can be

:18:40.:18:40.

restored. The Scottish Government's

:18:41.:18:43.

controversial named person policy will not be rolled out on the last

:18:44.:18:45.

day of August as planned. The Education Secretary John Swinney

:18:46.:18:48.

says changes need to be made after the Supreme Court ruled last

:18:49.:18:51.

month that some proposals breach The system would appoint a named

:18:52.:18:53.

person for every child The contenders for the leadership

:18:54.:18:57.

of the UK Labour Party will be making their pitches

:18:58.:19:02.

to Scottish members tomorrow. So how's the debate

:19:03.:19:06.

shaping in Scotland? We've sent our political

:19:07.:19:08.

correspondent Nick The banks of the Clyde in Greenock,

:19:09.:19:18.

an imposing reminder of Scotland's industrial past. Once safe Labour

:19:19.:19:24.

territory, now represented by the SNP. The logo label party you

:19:25.:19:30.

support a Jeremy Corbyn last year, but this time it is split. Some

:19:31.:19:35.

think he is still the right man for the job, but others think there

:19:36.:19:39.

needs to be a change of leadership to arrest the decline. These local

:19:40.:19:43.

members are backing Owen Smith. Christine Boyd never thought Mr

:19:44.:19:49.

Corbyn was the right man, and James, who did, has now changed his mind.

:19:50.:19:54.

We need hope, energy and ambition to show that Labour is fighting and can

:19:55.:19:59.

win again. And there when Smith is the man for that? That is what we

:20:00.:20:04.

believe. I have been a Labour Party member for 30 years and regardless

:20:05.:20:08.

of the outcome I will still be a member at the end of this process.

:20:09.:20:12.

Siobhan McCreadie was the first Labour candidate to lose her vote

:20:13.:20:18.

here and she disagrees. She thinks Jeremy Corbyn can win back Scotland

:20:19.:20:19.

for Labour. Every day I get people Jeremy Corbyn can win back Scotland

:20:20.:20:24.

who have been in the union for a Jeremy Corbyn can win back Scotland

:20:25.:20:29.

number of years and who are totally disinterested, but they are coming

:20:30.:20:34.

back on a daily basis. The party he narrowly nominated Mr Smith, but

:20:35.:20:40.

they are in the minority. From the local parties in Scotland who have

:20:41.:20:44.

picked a horse in this race, the majority are backing Jeremy Corbyn.

:20:45.:20:49.

But UK wide Jeremy Corbyn's lead over his challenger is far higher.

:20:50.:20:55.

We picked up nominations that were previously with Yvette Cooper and

:20:56.:20:58.

Andy Burnham, so very strong levels of support. The race has split the

:20:59.:21:05.

top team in Scottish Labour. There have been rumours of a split in the

:21:06.:21:09.

UK party, could there be one in Scotland? When you believe in the

:21:10.:21:14.

Labour Party, you believe in the collective. I hear a lot of talk

:21:15.:21:18.

about that and everybody is committed to the cause of labour.

:21:19.:21:24.

How to change the direction of Labour's electoral support could be

:21:25.:21:26.

In football, Celtic will find out tomorrow which teams they'll face

:21:27.:21:31.

They qualified for European club football's most prestigious

:21:32.:21:35.

competition after a four aggregate play-off win over Hapoel

:21:36.:21:37.

He says it was the most nerve wracking 90 minutes of his career in

:21:38.:21:54.

:21:55.:22:05.

another, their Champions League dream was over for another season.

:22:06.:22:13.

Little wonder joy was unconfined, Celtic through by the skin of their

:22:14.:22:19.

teeth. It was an amazing effort by the plays on the back of everything

:22:20.:22:26.

we have been through before. Huge applause to them and I am delighted

:22:27.:22:31.

we got the reward. Reaching the Champions League has financial

:22:32.:22:35.

rewards as well, qualifying worth an estimated ?30 million. The manager

:22:36.:22:40.

might want some of that upfront and quick to improve the squad. He is

:22:41.:22:44.

still assessing players at the moment, he needs to get more in.

:22:45.:22:49.

Going into the Champions League you do not want to embarrass yourself,

:22:50.:22:54.

you need a strong squad. Tomorrow the draw will reveal which three

:22:55.:22:58.

clubs will be arriving along Celtic way. One of these European giants

:22:59.:23:03.

could be among them. Barcelona, Bayern Munich and the defending

:23:04.:23:08.

champions real Madrid. A lot of the fans would like to see Real Madrid

:23:09.:23:13.

here because they have Barcelona and Manchester United, top-class teams

:23:14.:23:18.

in the past years. Madrid is yet to visit here and the stars they have

:23:19.:23:21.

got, it would be a special night if they were to come. It will be 50

:23:22.:23:28.

years since Billy McNeill the Celtic captain lifted the European cup in

:23:29.:23:35.

May. Nobody is suggesting they will win it this season, but that will

:23:36.:23:36.

not stop supporters from dreaming. It has been five years

:23:37.:23:37.

in the making and has cost more than ?30 million, but

Scotland's new Sports Performance centre is about

the university, but is it money well spell? -- well spent. In comparison

to other places in the country, it is up there with them. The Scottish

:24:24.:24:32.

will use this facility for all their national games, but it is not just

:24:33.:24:38.

about football. Rugby, netball, basketball, squash and racquetball

:24:39.:24:43.

will all use this facility, and in particular the high-performance

:24:44.:24:46.

ring. Each individual athlete will get their own space. If you are in

:24:47.:24:52.

the gym with the public, it would be difficult to get the equipment and

:24:53.:24:56.

move around and it will help us become more professional. We want to

:24:57.:25:02.

become professional athletes. It is not all about elite sports men and

brilliant, the pitch is massive, I am impressed. The sports science and

There is an expectancy of improved results on the field of play. We are

Now, let's get the weather. It was a lovely day across the vast majority

:26:03.:26:17.

of the country. There was some stubborn cloud in the North East and

:26:18.:26:22.

in the Western Isles and Northern Isles, but foremost we had guys like

:26:23.:26:27.

that. To end the day, lovely spells of late sunshine. The cloud will

:26:28.:26:33.

build in Central and eastern parts of the country, but it is mild

:26:34.:26:37.

overnight with temperatures holding in double digits. Tomorrow

:26:38.:26:41.

low-pressure nearby and a weather front in England produces heavy

:26:42.:26:47.

outbreaks of rain, but we are in between and we should escape. It is

:26:48.:26:52.

cloudy tomorrow compared to today, the best of the sunshine in the

:26:53.:26:56.

West. The rain in the North of England perhaps coming into the

:26:57.:27:01.

Borders. A few light showers in the Western Isles, but that wet weather

:27:02.:27:07.

should stay away. Another dry day, the lion's share of the sunshine in

:27:08.:27:12.

the West. Cooler where we have the cloud, but in the sunshine 20 or 21.

:27:13.:27:18.

Across the Western Isles a chance of a few light showers. As we head

:27:19.:27:25.

through the afternoon and into the evening the rain clears away,

:27:26.:27:27.

perhaps brushing through the Borders. Low-pressure as we head

:27:28.:27:33.

through towards Friday producing a few showers for the Highlands and

:27:34.:27:35.

through towards Friday producing a Islands, but for most of the country

:27:36.:27:40.

it is another dry and fine day. The highest temperatures in eastern

:27:41.:27:44.

parts. In the West the cloud will break. On the face of it Saturday

:27:45.:27:52.

looks fine and dry with sunshine, but take a look to the south of the

:27:53.:27:55.

border and what is lurking and you will see a rather large area of

:27:56.:28:05.

rain. It is likely to come our way. If you have planned this weekend,

:28:06.:28:11.

stay tuned to the forecast. Is it from us, goodbye.
