and on BBC One we now join the BBC's news teams where you are.

:00:00.:00:10.

Tonight, on Reporting Scotland, Labour's leadership contenders

:00:11.:00:11.

Both are here for their party's hustings.

:00:12.:00:14.

But strains are already showing between the party south

:00:15.:00:16.

Why people in Glasgow's Govanhill are resorting to stealing

:00:17.:00:20.

from charity clothing containers and hunting in bins for food.

:00:21.:00:31.

Some don't have money for food for baby. Only husband go working. They

:00:32.:00:43.

need the money to buy everything for the child.

:00:44.:00:45.

Our correspondent has another special report.

:00:46.:00:49.

An unlikely political scandal - so-called "Legogate".

:00:50.:00:53.

We'll explain the row over a councillor, a conference

:00:54.:00:55.

And Celtic find out who they'll face, now they're

:00:56.:00:58.

The Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn, is in Scotland tonight

:00:59.:01:18.

for a hustings with Owen Smith, his challenger

:01:19.:01:19.

Mr Corbyn has said he's disappointed that the party's Scottish leader,

:01:20.:01:25.

Kezia Dugdale, isn't backing him for the job.

:01:26.:01:29.

Meanwhile, Mr Smith has told the BBC he's open to a free vote for Labour

:01:30.:01:35.

politicians in the event of another independence referendum.

:01:36.:01:39.

But said it was ultimately up to the Scottish leadership

:01:40.:01:41.

Our political correspondent, Nick Eardley has the story.

:01:42.:01:51.

Which direction should the Labour Party take? Fresh from a row about

:01:52.:01:59.

whether he was forced to sit on a floor on a busy train, today the

:02:00.:02:03.

focus turned to how to get Labour's electrode performance in Scotland

:02:04.:02:06.

back contract. Mr Corbyn's supporters think his radical brand

:02:07.:02:11.

of politics can attract voters. That is despite the Scottish leader Kezia

:02:12.:02:17.

Dugdale saying he is unelectable. His response? I'm disappointed she

:02:18.:02:21.

is not supporting my real election as leader. I hope she realises that

:02:22.:02:27.

we are putting forward a clear and hysterically programme. But he

:02:28.:02:31.

agrees with her that independence is not the answer to Scotland's

:02:32.:02:35.

problems. The SNP have a different purpose which is to achieve

:02:36.:02:39.

independence. I respect their right to advance their cause but so

:02:40.:02:45.

reserve the right to disagree with it. We are not looking for an

:02:46.:02:48.

alliance with the SNP. I will welcome support for all or any of

:02:49.:02:51.

our policies from any other political groups or parties. Owen

:02:52.:02:56.

Smith thinks the party needs change at Westminster, especially if it is

:02:57.:02:59.

to win the porters and seats back from the SNP and Tories. Scotland is

:03:00.:03:05.

a great heartland of the Labour Party and Scotland needs a Labour

:03:06.:03:09.

government in Holyrood and also in Westminster. I think I would bring a

:03:10.:03:14.

very detailed understanding of devolution, how it works, given my

:03:15.:03:18.

experience as the Shadow Welsh Secretary. Could that mean allowing

:03:19.:03:24.

Labour politicians a free vote on Scottish independence? It would not

:03:25.:03:34.

be for me to determine what MSP 's will do. That would be for Kezia

:03:35.:03:36.

Dugdale and the Scottish Labour Party. I am all for maximum autonomy

:03:37.:03:39.

for the party. I think that is one of the mistakes we made in the past

:03:40.:03:42.

that we did not give people their head as Scottish people to reflect

:03:43.:03:47.

their own identity. Can this enthusiastic support be extended to

:03:48.:03:51.

the wider electorate? That is the challenge ahead for Labour.

:03:52.:03:54.

Our political editor Brian Taylor joins us now from outside the SECC,

:03:55.:03:57.

where the hustings will start in the next hour.

:03:58.:04:02.

Brian, Jeremy Corbyn says he is to -- disappointed not to get the

:04:03.:04:15.

support from Kezia Dugdale? I have heard him speak twice today and I

:04:16.:04:20.

will can delete my hat-trick in a moment. He has said he is against

:04:21.:04:26.

austerity and the Labour Party is out of that -- out of step for not

:04:27.:04:36.

supporting him. I'm sure Kezia Dugdale would take issues on certain

:04:37.:04:41.

policies but she does not believe that Jeremy Corbyn is a credible

:04:42.:04:45.

leader or a credible contender for Prime Minister. She believes in

:04:46.:04:52.

short he is a loser. Team Corbyn think she will have to do backtrack

:04:53.:04:55.

short he is a loser. Team Corbyn and he will be a winner in this

:04:56.:05:03.

Labour leadership contest. What you make of Owen Smith's view on a free

:05:04.:05:10.

vote? He did about a 90 degrees turn within a few seconds. He is not the

:05:11.:05:14.

first UK politician to stumble over the intricacies of Scottish

:05:15.:05:18.

politics. I think it reflects yet again that Labour is still seeking

:05:19.:05:22.

to balance this idea of being a UK party with a class -based appeal,

:05:23.:05:27.

and economic appeal, and trying to work with that sense of Scottish

:05:28.:05:33.

partridges. That sense of Scottish identification. In terms of the

:05:34.:05:36.

contest within the party, it will be decided by the votes, but right now

:05:37.:05:38.

contest within the party, it will be it does not look like ending in a

:05:39.:05:42.

particularly comradely fashion. Thank you.

:05:43.:05:45.

An investigation by BBC Scotland has found that exploitation of workers

:05:46.:05:47.

is commonplace in the heart of Govanhill in Glasgow.

:05:48.:05:50.

In the second of her special reports, our political

:05:51.:05:52.

correspondent, Lucy Adams, also found that exceptional levels

:05:53.:05:55.

of poverty in the area were being exacerbated

:05:56.:05:57.

In the south side of Glasgow, we find two win in taking food from

:05:58.:06:15.

bins and filling an empty pram with bags of clothes from a charity

:06:16.:06:19.

clothing bin. The company which looks after the banks says that are

:06:20.:06:24.

so commonplace they have had to make them more secure. They actually

:06:25.:06:29.

dropped a child inside the clothing bank to pass the stuff out and when

:06:30.:06:33.

someone came to chase them away, the child was left there and the police

:06:34.:06:43.

had to rescue it. A study obtained by the BBC found of 300 Roma people

:06:44.:06:46.

and Govanhill, most were working but almost a third earned less than the

:06:47.:06:51.

minimum wage. These people say low wages were one reason why women

:06:52.:06:56.

steal from charity clothing bins. Some do not have money for food for

:06:57.:07:02.

baby. Too many ladies are not going working, only husband goes working.

:07:03.:07:08.

They need the money to buy everything for the child. Volunteers

:07:09.:07:15.

say the solution is education. If their English is not good enough,

:07:16.:07:19.

they don't know their rights, they're working for less than the

:07:20.:07:22.

minimum wage. The solution would be more English classes in the area, so

:07:23.:07:27.

if their English is getting better and better, they can get a better

:07:28.:07:34.

job. I am teaching English in Govanhill because we have people

:07:35.:07:40.

from 42 different countries. These English lessons in the Church on

:07:41.:07:45.

Daisy Street started last year because of growing demand. Dozens of

:07:46.:07:50.

people come each week. My name is Ivanovic I am from Slovakia. I have

:07:51.:07:55.

been in Glasgow six years. I have a very beautiful son. I am very happy.

:07:56.:08:02.

Learning some English does not guarantee the minimum wage. ?3,

:08:03.:08:11.

maximum ?7. Are you happy to work for less than the minimum wage. Yes.

:08:12.:08:18.

The poverty here echoes Glasgow's past. What we saw was a community

:08:19.:08:25.

which reminded me of growing up in the 1960s in the East End of

:08:26.:08:30.

Glasgow. You had workless men standing on street corners. They by

:08:31.:08:35.

and large tend to have large families, so the men are standing

:08:36.:08:37.

and large tend to have large out to get away from the wife and

:08:38.:08:42.

children. You have flats where there are infestations we have not seen in

:08:43.:08:48.

this country for many generations, bedbugs, cockroaches, rats in flats.

:08:49.:08:54.

Figures obtained by the BBC show in Govanhill in the past four years,

:08:55.:09:00.

there have been 1500 instances of mites, bedbugs and fleas and almost

:09:01.:09:06.

2000 cases of cockroaches although recent figures have fallen slightly.

:09:07.:09:11.

This lawyer sees the results daily. Quite often your clients have read

:09:12.:09:17.

pockmarks and they are scratching and the children are scratching. The

:09:18.:09:20.

landlords will pick up mattresses in the street and put them in a

:09:21.:09:26.

client's flat. If there are fleas or bedbugs they will be transferred

:09:27.:09:27.

into the new property. bedbugs they will be transferred

:09:28.:09:36.

is an issue. There is an increase in migrants after the referendum in

:09:37.:09:43.

May. We have definitely seen an influx of migrants. They see it

:09:44.:09:47.

perhaps is the last chance and they are coming here. It is new migrants

:09:48.:09:53.

which have made Govanhill what it is. It is an amazingly vibrant

:09:54.:09:59.

place. All of the things that people see as the bad things have their

:10:00.:10:02.

emperors at its aspect as well. Being so busy means there is always

:10:03.:10:08.

something going on. The low rents also bringing artists and students.

:10:09.:10:13.

There are lots of things happening in Govanhill. There are lots of

:10:14.:10:17.

people doing things to address problems at different levels. I just

:10:18.:10:27.

love the noise. It is events like this world music night which really

:10:28.:10:33.

reflect the diversity and vibrancy of the area. Are you having a good

:10:34.:10:39.

time? Everyone is together. You don't see that anywhere else. The

:10:40.:10:45.

group of young people I work with just want to work. They want to

:10:46.:10:50.

express themselves, some want to be famous, they want to wrap and

:10:51.:10:53.

perform, they just want to make something of themselves. They are

:10:54.:10:59.

not here to leech, or to rob or harm anyone, they just want to have a

:11:00.:11:08.

good life. This diverse community has its fair share of problems. But

:11:09.:11:13.

talk to people here, they tell you they could be overcome.

:11:14.:11:16.

Scotland's colleges have been through a massive shake-up,

:11:17.:11:18.

with several mergers and a cut in the number of part-time students.

:11:19.:11:21.

But according to the public spending watchdog, more work is needed

:11:22.:11:24.

to understand what impact the controversial changes are having.

:11:25.:11:27.

The Scottish government says it'll consider the findings.

:11:28.:11:30.

As our education correspondent Jamie McIvor reports,

:11:31.:11:33.

the changes have seen winners and losers.

:11:34.:11:40.

Stephan is getting ready for college. He is about to begin a

:11:41.:11:48.

two-year HND course in mechanical engineering. Heart -- after college

:11:49.:11:57.

I will go to university and get a job at the end. Colleges now focus

:11:58.:12:03.

on full-time courses like the one Stephan will do. More school leavers

:12:04.:12:07.

and young adults are getting full-time places. It is the result

:12:08.:12:12.

of a deliberate policy move. But there is another side to the coin.

:12:13.:12:18.

Overall budgets were cut by nearly a fifth in real terms over five years.

:12:19.:12:23.

Jobs have gone and the number of part-time students is down

:12:24.:12:27.

dramatically, nearly half in eight years. One of the issues remains

:12:28.:12:35.

about funding. A number of colleges are facing significant financial

:12:36.:12:39.

challenges over the next year. The sector is one which does not have

:12:40.:12:49.

problems to sue. One big change is the merger of colleges. City of

:12:50.:12:54.

Glasgow College is hailed as a good example. Nationally, the public

:12:55.:12:58.

spending watchdog says it needs to be easier to show if reforms are

:12:59.:13:02.

getting results. It is not possible for the government to report on the

:13:03.:13:06.

getting results. It is not possible costs and benefits of the reforms

:13:07.:13:09.

they have been through. It is not clear if they have been fully

:13:10.:13:16.

achieved or what the cost was. The shake-up has sometimes seemed

:13:17.:13:19.

difficulties. This year saw a national pay strike, but colleges

:13:20.:13:26.

claim overall they have a good story to tell. It is only right the

:13:27.:13:28.

government puts the funding in and wants to see good results at the

:13:29.:13:33.

other side. If that means we have to do more data collection, that is

:13:34.:13:36.

fine as long as it does not detract from the impact on the student. Some

:13:37.:13:43.

working in colleges have real worries about their futures.

:13:44.:13:45.

You're watching Reporting Scotland from the BBC.

:13:46.:13:47.

Still to come on tonight's programme...

:13:48.:13:49.

An unlikely political scandal - so-called "Legogate".

:13:50.:13:51.

We'll explain the row over a councillor, a conference

:13:52.:13:54.

The former Education Secretary, Mike Russell, has been

:13:55.:14:04.

appointed to a new post as, basically, minister for Brexit

:14:05.:14:07.

He'll lead discussions with the UK government to protect

:14:08.:14:11.

Scotland's interests ahead of negotiations on leaving the EU.

:14:12.:14:16.

Our political correspondent, Andrew Kerr, is at the Scottish

:14:17.:14:18.

Something of a comeback for Mr Russell, Andrew?

:14:19.:14:28.

Yes, sadly. Mike Russell is the comeback kid of Scottish politics

:14:29.:14:34.

tonight. There had been some speculation about who would emerge

:14:35.:14:39.

from behind the black door at the house, the First Minister's official

:14:40.:14:44.

residence to be appointed Minister for Brexit. As you see, the former

:14:45.:14:49.

Education Secretary, he stepped down from government two years ago when

:14:50.:14:54.

Nicola Sturgeon took over, perhaps rather unwillingly, but he is a

:14:55.:14:59.

political heavyweight to the right of the party. Maybe Nicola Sturgeon

:15:00.:15:05.

to the left but she welcomes his talents and she wants a strong voice

:15:06.:15:09.

for Scotland at these negotiations. This is what she told me earlier.

:15:10.:15:15.

This is a job for a capable and experienced minister. Over the next

:15:16.:15:20.

few months as the UK develops its negotiating position, it is vital

:15:21.:15:23.

that Scotland's voices heard and we have the opportunity for protecting

:15:24.:15:28.

Scotland's place in Europe which is what the majority of Scottish people

:15:29.:15:34.

voted for. We have to be in those negotiations meaningfully and Mike

:15:35.:15:42.

Russell will leave those for us. So Minister for negotiations on

:15:43.:15:45.

Scotland's place in Europe, to give it its Sunday title. The Prime

:15:46.:15:50.

Minister has said Brexit means Brexit. The Scottish Government

:15:51.:15:56.

wants to protect Scotland's place in Europe, so he says he will not be

:15:57.:16:01.

frustrating or being an obstacle to these negotiations, but a difficult

:16:02.:16:05.

job for Mr Russell and a difficult job for the UK ministers as well.

:16:06.:16:08.

Thank you. Police Scotland has said it's

:16:09.:16:10.

to delay further its plans to close control rooms

:16:11.:16:12.

in Aberdeen and Inverness. They had been expected

:16:13.:16:14.

to close early this year, with calls being transferred

:16:15.:16:16.

to a new control room in Dundee. But after the M9 tragedy,

:16:17.:16:19.

in which control staff failed to pass on details of a call

:16:20.:16:21.

about a crashed car in which two people died, the Inspector

:16:22.:16:25.

of Constabulary ordered the closure Relatives of a mother

:16:26.:16:28.

and her six-year-old son, who died after getting

:16:29.:16:36.

into difficulties at Aberdeen beach, have thanked those

:16:37.:16:38.

who tried to rescue them. Six-year-old Lucas Walker

:16:39.:16:43.

was playing, when he was His mother, 37-year-old

:16:44.:16:44.

Julie Walker, tried His brother Samuel, who's 13,

:16:45.:16:48.

and bystanders also tried to help. A look at other stories

:16:49.:16:58.

from across the country... A firefighter has been seriously

:16:59.:17:08.

injured after a wall collapsed on him while he was tackling a blaze at

:17:09.:17:12.

a disused building in Inverclyde. He was among a team of 24 firefighters

:17:13.:17:17.

called to the building just after midnight. An investigation is

:17:18.:17:20.

underway and the cause of the fire is being treated as suspicious. A

:17:21.:17:25.

2-year-old boy has been badly injured after falling from the

:17:26.:17:29.

window of a flat in South Lanarkshire. It happened in

:17:30.:17:33.

Rutherglen on Tuesday afternoon. A toddler is being treated at

:17:34.:17:37.

Glasgow's Queen Elizabeth University Hospital. Groups representing bus

:17:38.:17:41.

companies and passengers met today in Edinburgh. A recent report from

:17:42.:17:45.

Citizens Advice Scotland highlighted concerns about bus coverage and

:17:46.:17:50.

prices in rural areas. One solution discussed today was community owned

:17:51.:17:53.

transport which is growing in popularity. We focus on registered

:17:54.:18:00.

bus services, and the community transport is not registered bus

:18:01.:18:03.

services. I think there is a wealth of them out there and it is just a

:18:04.:18:07.

case of looking to see how they can work in the future, in partnership

:18:08.:18:11.

with a traditional bus company. For the first time in 20 years, a

:18:12.:18:15.

Scottish comedian is up for the most prestigious award at the Edinburgh

:18:16.:18:20.

fringe. Richard Gadd from Fife is one of eight comics short listed for

:18:21.:18:23.

the ?10,000 Edinburgh comedy awards prize. Hibernian's all the supporter

:18:24.:18:31.

has died at the age of 106. Just months after watching his team left

:18:32.:18:37.

the cup. Sam Martinez had followed the team since arriving in Edinburgh

:18:38.:18:41.

70 years ago. He finally saw Hibernian win the cup in May, the

:18:42.:18:45.

first time they had won the trophy in 100 years.

:18:46.:18:48.

It's been dubbed "Legogate" and has led to calls

:18:49.:18:50.

for the resignation of a senior Aberdeenshire councillor.

:18:51.:18:54.

Martin Kitts Hayes walked out on a prestigious conference

:18:55.:18:56.

at Legoland in Denmark, after complaining that the log

:18:57.:18:59.

cabin accommodation was not up to standard.

:19:00.:19:02.

Today a report revealed that the abortive trip

:19:03.:19:04.

for him and two colleagues cost almost ?3,500.

:19:05.:19:06.

It is many a child's dream to visit the home of Lego. For almost half a

:19:07.:19:23.

It is many a child's dream to visit century this place, with billions of

:19:24.:19:25.

bricks, has been providing holidays to remember forever. But for one

:19:26.:19:34.

senior counsellor it was the setting for a trip he would rather forget.

:19:35.:19:38.

That man was the co-leader of Aberdeenshire Council. He, and two

:19:39.:19:45.

colleagues, flew out of Aberdeen airport to attend a conference of

:19:46.:19:48.

the North Sea commission. When he saw the accommodation, he was not

:19:49.:19:53.

happy, lightening it -- likening it to Butlins in the 1970s. We have

:19:54.:19:59.

come here to see the most cheerful lass of the week. In less time than

:20:00.:20:04.

it took to judge the swimwear competition, the councillor was back

:20:05.:20:08.

on the plane. Then an hour and a quarter, he had rejected alternative

:20:09.:20:11.

accommodation suggestions and book to the party on the next flight

:20:12.:20:14.

home. But the saga did not end there. It is claimed that he tried

:20:15.:20:19.

to cover up his decision to fly home, phoning his PA to get her to

:20:20.:20:28.

tell people that they had not returned. Within two hours of

:20:29.:20:31.

arriving, they are on their way to fly home again. The report shows

:20:32.:20:36.

that if he had waited just half an hour or 45 minutes, he would have

:20:37.:20:41.

been alternative accommodation made available. There are calls already

:20:42.:20:44.

for Cancelo Kitts Hayes to resign over what happened in this resort.

:20:45.:20:49.

He has admitted his decision to return home was April one. But what

:20:50.:20:57.

has been dubbed Legogate does not end there. Councillors will discuss

:20:58.:21:00.

his actions at a specially convened meeting next week.

:21:01.:21:01.

The draw has been made for the group stage of the Champions League

:21:02.:21:04.

and Celtic have a tough task if they're to progress.

:21:05.:21:10.

David Currie is at Celtic Park for us tonight with all the details.

:21:11.:21:13.

Today's Champions League group stage draw was always going to produce a

:21:14.:21:22.

tough group for Celtic, as you say. And now we know exactly how tough. I

:21:23.:21:27.

will not keep you in suspense any longer. Let's have a look at the

:21:28.:21:31.

teams that Celtic will face, home and away. Starting with the top

:21:32.:21:38.

reaction to the draw. It is a great draw with three great teams. That is

why we are in the Champions League. Of course it is difficult in any

group. It is the best of the best. This is the biggest competition and

:22:29.:22:33.

we are delighted to be there but we are not just making up the numbers.

:22:34.:22:39.

It is worth bearing in mind that only the top two teams from the

:22:40.:22:44.

group progress to the knockout stage. If Celtic were to qualify it

:22:45.:22:49.

would be a tremendous achievement, and maybe Celtic supporters will

:22:50.:22:53.

settle for some great European nights here at Celtic Park, like the

:22:54.:22:57.

one in November of 2012 when Celtic beat the mighty Barcelona 2-1.

:22:58.:23:04.

There was a long-standing discussion about whether Scotland has too many

:23:05.:23:10.

professional football teams. Some clubs came close to merging in the

:23:11.:23:15.

90s. It is among the issues explored in a documentary charting some of

:23:16.:23:18.

the most significant moments in Scottish football over the last 30

:23:19.:23:26.

years. European triumphs against Barcelona, along with regular

:23:27.:23:31.

domestic success in the 1980s resulted in high praise for the then

:23:32.:23:33.

Dundee United manager, Jerry Maclean. There is a man who totally

:23:34.:23:39.

transformed the face of football in this city. He wanted to take that

:23:40.:23:44.

transformation a step further by merging the Tannadice club with

:23:45.:23:48.

their city rivals, Dundee. I believe that the club would be more

:23:49.:23:53.

successful if we joined ranks and pool resources and at the moment, we

:23:54.:23:58.

are spread too thin. It was very close to happening. It was within

:23:59.:24:03.

two or three days of happening, but it did not. There were other

:24:04.:24:08.

murderers. Edinburgh was nearly a merger at one point. Thompson is

:24:09.:24:14.

correct. In 1990 with Hibernian floundering financially, the Hearts

:24:15.:24:17.

chairman launched an audacious takeover bid. It should not come as

:24:18.:24:21.

a cultural shock. The thought of putting together two teams who have

:24:22.:24:28.

been competitors for 100 years or so. QR brawler from Hibernian fans

:24:29.:24:34.

at the next Edinburgh derby. There had been chants throughout the game

:24:35.:24:38.

against the Hearts chairman who is not here this afternoon. At

:24:39.:24:44.

half-time, there was the fear of another pitch invasion. They

:24:45.:24:46.

basically said, if you score another goal, we may have to stop the game.

:24:47.:24:53.

So if you can help it, don't score. So we said, no problem at all,

:24:54.:25:01.

thanks. And we said, no, that isn't happening. Hearts won the match but

:25:02.:25:05.

there was no merger. But the feeling that 42 senior clubs in Scotland's

:25:06.:25:10.

game was overkill remains. By any standard, that is too many. That is

:25:11.:25:18.

an issue in itself, in my view. What is the solution? I don't know. But

:25:19.:25:23.

it is something we should look at. Perhaps we will still be looking at

:25:24.:25:24.

it in another 30 years' time. And Scotland's Game
