Allies of Jeremy Corbyn deny that they would try to unseat Scottish

:00:00.:00:08.

The police hail a "significant effect" from the ban on the sale

:00:09.:00:14.

But charities say the new laws could cause further problems.

Calls to ban cars near schools at the beginning and end

Breaking down barriers to encourage older people

:00:24.:00:28.

to enjoy the health benefits of being in the great outdoors.

:00:29.:00:39.

Maybe we would be sitting at home watching television and redo that

:00:40.:00:45.

that day after day. But up here we are wondering about, in the woods,

surrounded by trees. of deadly Roman slingshots found

:00:48.:00:49.

on a Dumfrieshire hill. Could it be the place

:00:50.:00:53.

where the Roman invasion Jeremy Corbyn's allies have backed

:00:54.:00:55.

Kezia Dugdale to remain It comes after a former

:00:56.:01:14.

adviser to Gordon Brown suggested a pro-Corbyn MSP

:01:15.:01:18.

would challenge her At a hustings in Glasgow last night,

:01:19.:01:20.

a section of the audience laughed when it was suggested Ms Dugdale

:01:21.:01:27.

was doing a good job. Fresh from last night's hustings,

:01:28.:01:46.

Jeremy Corbyn in Edinburgh today. Respect for everybody. Was it

:01:47.:01:53.

embarrassing? Voters have joined the Labour Party

:01:54.:01:56.

to support him but the leader in Scotland is backing his rival,

:01:57.:02:00.

saying Mr Corbyn is not up to the job. It has been suggested that

:02:01.:02:05.

could lead to Mr Corbyn's supporters trying to oust Kezia Dugdale. Jeremy

:02:06.:02:12.

Corbyn is going to win big. The deputy who supports him will

:02:13.:02:16.

probably challenge Kezia Dugdale. He is a man whose ambition may be in

:02:17.:02:21.

inverse proportion to his ability, but he is certainly ambitious. The

:02:22.:02:25.

UK candidates made their pitch to Scotland last night. What has gone

:02:26.:02:31.

wrong, they were asked. We have gone backwards on your watch in Scotland,

:02:32.:02:35.

from second to third. You were meant to be winning back Scotland on the

:02:36.:02:40.

basis that we would be more radical. There is a big fight ahead and a

:02:41.:02:42.

long road back. The SNP are actually There is a big fight ahead and a

:02:43.:02:47.

doing an austerity programme while pretending they are not. Think Kezia

:02:48.:02:51.

Dugdale is doing a Rhun job, a fantastic role model. I think she is

:02:52.:02:57.

doing a fantastic job and is a great role model for Labour across this

:02:58.:03:03.

country. What does that mean for the Scottish Labour leader? There has

:03:04.:03:06.

been angry response to Mr Sinclair's comments from some people supporting

:03:07.:03:10.

Jeremy Corbyn. Alex Rowley says the idea that he would stand is rubbish.

:03:11.:03:15.

A leadership challenge, he says, is not on the cards. Neal Findlay is

:03:16.:03:20.

one of Mr Corbyn's closest allies in Scotland, seen welcoming him

:03:21.:03:24.

yesterday. He stood in the last Scottish leadership election against

:03:25.:03:29.

Kezia Dugdale. We asked if he would consider standing again. Absolutely

:03:30.:03:36.

no way, 1000, 1,000,000%. Kezia Dugdale has a large mandate to lead

:03:37.:03:41.

the Scottish Labour Party. This former Labour MP thinks it is time

:03:42.:03:46.

to get behind the Scottish leader. I thought it was appalling and I don't

:03:47.:03:51.

envisage a challenge to her. Kezia Dugdale has been elected by the

:03:52.:03:53.

Scottish party members and is working hard to make sure that

:03:54.:03:58.

Labour regains its electoral position in Scotland. Can this man

:03:59.:04:03.

or his rival help with that, or might they get in the way?

:04:04.:04:06.

They were called "legal highs" but are now very much "illegal

:04:07.:04:08.

highs" and the police say that a change in the law three months ago

:04:09.:04:12.

banning the sale and distribution of psychoactive substances is having

:04:13.:04:14.

But some say the new laws could actually be causing further

:04:15.:04:18.

Our Home Affairs Correspondent, Reevel Alderson reports.

:04:19.:04:27.

They are popularly known as legal highs, but since the law changed

:04:28.:04:34.

three months ago that name is no longer appropriate. New psychoactive

:04:35.:04:38.

substances can no longer be sold legally and importing them is also

:04:39.:04:43.

against the law. Police Scotland say the new law has had a significant

:04:44.:04:48.

effect. Before it, there were 90 retailers selling the drugs across

:04:49.:04:52.

Scotland and now there are none, with premises closed, or selling

:04:53.:04:56.

other products. Police say there have been no arrests for offences

:04:57.:05:00.

under the act but they admit that they know it is still going on.

:05:01.:05:04.

There is a small minority of premises that are a persistent and

:05:05.:05:10.

resistant element continuing to sell them. That falls within the realms

:05:11.:05:16.

of the legislation, so the police and our partners will robustly

:05:17.:05:18.

target those individuals and we would in courage them to cease

:05:19.:05:24.

selling. The problem in the past was that legal highs could be easily

:05:25.:05:27.

chemically altered to help overcome any legal ban. The new legislation

:05:28.:05:33.

has been designed to overcome that. But in Ireland, where there is a

:05:34.:05:39.

similar law, consumption of new psychoactive substances has actually

:05:40.:05:43.

risen since it was introduced. That is concerning this drugs awareness

:05:44.:05:47.

charity in Edinburgh, which fears that driving the sale of the streets

:05:48.:05:52.

might actually cause difficulties for users. When these were on open

:05:53.:05:56.

sale was shocking to people but the fact that they were on open sale was

:05:57.:06:00.

perhaps suggesting incorrectly that they might be safe because they were

:06:01.:06:06.

being tolerated. Now that they are banned, I suppose the worry is that

:06:07.:06:09.

there is even less accountability. If these are sold online, or through

:06:10.:06:14.

traditional drug dealing networks, we feel the price will go up and

:06:15.:06:17.

there is more risk of harm to people. The charity and police are

:06:18.:06:21.

warning users that buying the drugs online from overseas rings a risk of

:06:22.:06:27.

prosecution as it could be classed as importing them, which is

:06:28.:06:31.

prohibited under the new law. -- it brings a risk of prosecution.

:06:32.:06:35.

Drivers in Edinburgh look likely to be asked to stay away

:06:36.:06:37.

The city's council has been piloting a scheme which bans

:06:38.:06:41.

motors from some areas -- to try and cut accidents

:06:42.:06:43.

While it's not proving popular with everyone in the capital,

:06:44.:06:47.

one environmental charity is calling for other local authorities to do

:06:48.:06:49.

Edinburgh's experiment with traffic movement around schools began last

:06:50.:07:03.

September. At nine of them, drivers were told they could not drive past

:07:04.:07:08.

in peak hours. The result, confusion and frayed tempers. Nearly one year

:07:09.:07:14.

on, Edinburgh City Council says the scheme delivered real benefits, not

:07:15.:07:19.

least for children, many of whom now walk to and from school. It means

:07:20.:07:24.

signs like this are set to become a permanent feature across some

:07:25.:07:26.

schools. But are all the drivers obeying the rules? This is another

:07:27.:07:31.

school that asked to take part in the pilot. When school finished at

:07:32.:07:35.

lunchtime today, some drivers were clearly ignoring the signs. I got a

:07:36.:07:41.

phone call to pick up my friend's child, because she is stuck in

:07:42.:07:47.

traffic, she is late. And I did the same, which is wrong. Parents say it

:07:48.:07:53.

is not unusual. Every day, and it will never change. The police have

:07:54.:07:58.

been at the top of the road and they still tried to pull in. It is a

:07:59.:08:04.

nightmare. A report on the pilot scheme goes before the Transport

:08:05.:08:07.

Committee on Tuesday with a recommendation that it becomes

:08:08.:08:12.

permanent. One walking charity says all local authorities should

:08:13.:08:14.

consider adopting the scheme, but they will need to act tough.

:08:15.:08:19.

Enforcement has to be part of this. It can be soft to begin with but now

:08:20.:08:23.

we are one year on and parents should know the drill and it

:08:24.:08:27.

probably needs somebody to pick up people, possibly just warning them

:08:28.:08:31.

and going after persistent offenders. Edinburgh Council says

:08:32.:08:37.

that peer pressure might help. Parents are frustrated with those

:08:38.:08:41.

they cannot get onside, those who park on yellow lines and on corners.

:08:42.:08:46.

It is a minority who spoil it being a safe area for young people to get

:08:47.:08:52.

to school. East Lothian Council already run a similar scheme. So

:08:53.:08:56.

far, other areas have yet to signal that they are on board.

:08:57.:08:58.

You're watching Reporting Scotland from the BBC.

:08:59.:09:00.

Why the country's newest choir is out to make its mark

:09:01.:09:05.

And Europe can wait, says Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers,

:09:06.:09:13.

as his side get ready to take on Aberdeen tomorrow.

:09:14.:09:20.

Creating a more equal workplace is key to our economic success.

:09:21.:09:24.

That's the claim from the Scottish Government.

:09:25.:09:26.

It says such things as a higher minimum wage, greater diversity

:09:27.:09:29.

and better relations between unions and employers would bring stronger

:09:30.:09:33.

But the Conservatives say that while the Labour Market Strategy

:09:34.:09:39.

is all very well, it's also "terribly worthy", as our political

:09:40.:09:42.

A well paid, well-trained, inclusive workforce is the goal of the

:09:43.:09:58.

government. Improving productivity is key, as Scotland lags behind the

:09:59.:10:04.

rest of the UK. This apprentice gas engineer is finishing up at this

:10:05.:10:08.

Hamilton training academy. One of the reasons I came was for a better

:10:09.:10:12.

standard of living and prospects for the future better than before.

:10:13.:10:17.

Coming to the company and seeing they had in place something like

:10:18.:10:20.

that, and talking to the majority of people who worked for them and were

:10:21.:10:23.

apprentices and they are still with the company 20 years later. He and

:10:24.:10:29.

the other apprentices met the Minister who is launching the Labour

:10:30.:10:34.

market strategy. In many comparative countries in other nations they can

:10:35.:10:39.

combine the fair work agenda, ensuring that people are properly

:10:40.:10:43.

remunerated, that they have fulfilling employment. We know the

:10:44.:10:47.

benefits of that are not just economic. They do have that wider

:10:48.:10:54.

economic benefit. They can lift productivity and ensure a fairer

:10:55.:10:59.

Labour market, as well. Scotland's economy is changing all the time.

:11:00.:11:04.

This was once a bustling shipyard. Nowadays, think of the problems

:11:05.:11:09.

facing our oil industry, with Scotland having a deficit of almost

:11:10.:11:12.

?15 billion because of the low oil price. Opponents are saying that

:11:13.:11:18.

more than words are needed. There is not a lot in this document that many

:11:19.:11:23.

people will object to. Many of the aims are very worthy. Our concern is

:11:24.:11:29.

that it misses the point. The Scottish economy is underperforming

:11:30.:11:33.

the economy of the UK as a whole. We have a productivity gap between

:11:34.:11:36.

Scotland and the rest of the UK. There is little in this document to

:11:37.:11:41.

address these fundamental issues. But the issue that is heating up the

:11:42.:11:45.

biggest economic challenge is the UK leaving the European Union, with the

:11:46.:11:50.

Scottish Government in particular warning about the economic impact.

:11:51.:11:55.

Now, are you ready for a "green prescription" from your GP?

:11:56.:11:57.

A study out today suggests that might be a good idea to ensure some

:11:58.:12:01.

older people get outdoors more and improve their health.

:12:02.:12:03.

Lisa Summers has been finding out how it might work.

:12:04.:12:12.

There is nothing quite like a campfire to lift the spirits. Thank

:12:13.:12:22.

you. Normally we would be sitting at home watching television. You do

:12:23.:12:28.

that day after day. But up here, we are always wondering about and we

:12:29.:12:31.

are in the woods and surrounded by trees and it really is interesting.

:12:32.:12:36.

This woodland activity programme is designed for people in the early

:12:37.:12:41.

stages of the mensch. The forest and woodlands are a great library, eight

:12:42.:12:45.

natural resources. They trigger memories of past experiences and

:12:46.:12:51.

give people an opportunity to socialise and make contact with

:12:52.:12:54.

others. It is a great setting for treatment and recovery, and an

:12:55.:12:57.

opportunity to take things away from a clinical, medical setting. It has

:12:58.:13:05.

been a lifeline for this couple. At first I thought it would be good for

:13:06.:13:08.

him to get out because everywhere I go, he is with me. I thought, if he

:13:09.:13:13.

goes, I will go. Last week I decided I would come and I thoroughly

:13:14.:13:18.

enjoyed it and I am back today. Why were you reticent to come? Possibly

:13:19.:13:24.

I did not want to be roped in as an invalid, which I am not, just

:13:25.:13:32.

somebody that forgets. The benefits of the so-called natural health

:13:33.:13:35.

service are well documented but less is known about the obstacles that

:13:36.:13:39.

discourage older people from taking part. It is no surprise that getting

:13:40.:13:43.

outdoors is good for your health, but what this research points to is

:13:44.:13:47.

that in some cases it is important that programmes are tailor-made to

:13:48.:13:53.

people's needs. Lending a hand was the Environment Secretary.

:13:54.:13:56.

Understanding why more people are not doing it, we can begin to

:13:57.:14:01.

understand how to get about those obstacles and the effects on change.

:14:02.:14:08.

We are going to decorate a tree. Time for some environmental art.

:14:09.:14:12.

This programme shows that getting the right type of activity has an

:14:13.:14:13.

impact on quality-of-life. A look at other stories

:14:14.:14:16.

from across the country. A couple in their 80s -

:14:17.:14:18.

who are both deaf - were attacked in their home

:14:19.:14:21.

in the east end of Police are examining CCTV and making

:14:22.:14:23.

door-to-door enquiries. They're keen to speak to two people

:14:24.:14:28.

the attacker was seen talking to in Abercromby Street,

:14:29.:14:31.

before he carried out the assault. Train passengers on the

:14:32.:14:35.

Edinburgh to Glasgow rail line are facing months of disruption

:14:36.:14:37.

during electrification works. After eight thirty at night every

:14:38.:14:41.

Sunday and Thursday a replacement bus will operate between

:14:42.:14:45.

Polmont and Edinburgh. Trains will also start later

:14:46.:14:48.

on Sunday mornings. The works begin on the

fourth of September. had to be evacuated,

:14:52.:14:54.

after a fire at a snow-sports shop. The emergency services

:14:55.:15:01.

were called just after half past 11 last night,

:15:02.:15:03.

following reports of smoke coming from the ground floor and basement

:15:04.:15:06.

of the property on Lady Lawson Around 40 firefighters were tackling

:15:07.:15:09.

the blaze at its height. Thousands of swimmers

:15:10.:15:15.

are taking to the open water of Loch Lomond as part

:15:16.:15:18.

of the Great Scottish Swim, tackling distances of

:15:19.:15:21.

up to ten kilometres. Around 2400 amateur

:15:22.:15:24.

participants of all ages and abilities will be joined

:15:25.:15:27.

by a group of elite swimmers, including Olympians

:15:28.:15:31.

just returned from Rio. This is one of my favourite

:15:32.:15:45.

locations to swimming in the world. The water is so crisp, clean and

:15:46.:15:48.

clear and the surroundings are fantastic.

Electric Fields is being held over two days for the first time

Headliners tonight are The Charlatans, and tomorrow

Was a landmark flat-topped hill in Dumfriesshire where the Roman

:16:02.:16:11.

It had been thought Burnswark was the site of a Roman

:16:12.:16:17.

army training ground, or firing range.

:16:18.:16:19.

But new excavations suggest the truth was much more bloody.

:16:20.:16:21.

Burns work's lines of history, on the summit, the outline of a native

:16:22.:16:38.

fought flanked north and south by huge Roman camps, for 6000 men or

:16:39.:16:42.

more. Down below they are trying to uncover what happened here. These

:16:43.:16:48.

bullets are a vital clue. They are being traced in huge numbers and not

:16:49.:16:52.

in a pattern suggesting target practice. Mysteriously many have

:16:53.:16:58.

identical four millimetre holes. A German slingshot ballistics expert

:16:59.:17:05.

investigated and he made and fired replicas, the effects became

:17:06.:17:06.

obvious. Well... It is shattering away like a

:17:07.:17:19.

bird! Only more deadly! We heard a screeching noise we've never heard

:17:20.:17:21.

or experienced before in your life... This gentle man next to me

:17:22.:17:27.

dropped and I wondered what on earth was doing it, I would be terrified.

:17:28.:17:32.

What happened here is starting to look short, sharp and bloody. The

:17:33.:17:36.

lead has been dated to the mid-2nd century, but time of a Roman general

:17:37.:17:43.

who had spent four years slaughtering Jews in her camps

:17:44.:17:48.

across Judy and came to Britain around 140A.D as warlord of the new

:17:49.:17:53.

emperor Antonius Pius who in ordered the invasion of Scotland. It may

:17:54.:17:58.

well have started at Burns work. The native tribesmen on top of the hill

:17:59.:18:02.

came under ferocious bombardment from thousands of Roman soldiers in

:18:03.:18:03.

the South camp on the other side. If from thousands of Roman soldiers in

:18:04.:18:08.

they thought of trying to run the Romans in the North camp on this

:18:09.:18:11.

side barricaded their way out, there was simply no escape. We think these

:18:12.:18:18.

people literally suffered the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune and

:18:19.:18:21.

I suspect probably nobody survived this. Complete overkill against a

:18:22.:18:26.

weaker, burly armed enemy but a clear message to barbarous Scots not

:18:27.:18:32.

to mess with the Romans on their march north. More work to prove the

:18:33.:18:35.

theory is planned in the years ahead.

The last BHS store in Scotland closes this weekend.

:18:38.:18:40.

The branch in Glasgow's St Enoch Centre shuts for the final

:18:41.:18:42.

time at 6pm on Sunday after the department store chain

:18:43.:18:46.

was wound down with the loss of up to 11,000 jobs across the UK.

:18:47.:18:52.

Former BHS owner Sir Philip Green has faced calls to compensate

:18:53.:18:54.

The Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers says they won't be making up

:18:55.:19:04.

the numbers in the Champions League - despite being drawn

:19:05.:19:09.

in what he thinks is the toughest group.

:19:10.:19:11.

And he says facing Barcelona, Manchester City and Borrussia

:19:12.:19:13.

Munchengladbach will strengthen his hand when it comes to

:19:14.:19:16.

attracting transfer targets to sign for his team.

:19:17.:19:17.

But at the moment he says his first priority is tomorrow's premiership

:19:18.:19:20.

No need for the hard sell when it comes to tickets for the Celtic

:19:21.:19:35.

Champions League match. Since signing Scott Sinclair is happy

:19:36.:19:38.

enough in his role as salesmen, extras in groups is sell themselves.

:19:39.:19:44.

Celtic, the last team but not the least, Celtic... Completing this

:19:45.:19:52.

group C. With Barcelona, Manchester City and Borrusia Monchengladbach.

:19:53.:19:57.

We've maybe got the top teams from arguably each of the different

:19:58.:20:07.

parts. All in one group. But our aim is to have a go. He'll have to and

:20:08.:20:13.

then some to compete with this man's team, he managed Barcelona to two

:20:14.:20:17.

Champions League titles, now the super bosses in charge of Manchester

:20:18.:20:23.

City. What does he make of Celtic? I have a lot of respect for Celtic and

:20:24.:20:29.

Glasgow, maybe you know better than me, a coach with a lot of experience

:20:30.:20:34.

in the past with Liverpool. Top group. Brendan Rogers wants to

:20:35.:20:38.

reinforce his squad for the Champions League campaign and he

:20:39.:20:42.

thinks the prospect of facing the likes of Barcelona and Lionel Messi

:20:43.:20:46.

might help his cause. I've been in the Champions League, unlike certain

:20:47.:20:51.

players, they will sit up and take notice and like I say, it gives you

:20:52.:20:55.

the opportunity to bring that calibre of player in. The group were

:20:56.:21:01.

top dogs in the Premiership last season and made closest rivals

:21:02.:21:04.

Aberdeen for the first time this season tomorrow can the dons to the

:21:05.:21:08.

Celtic what Celtic hope to do either Champions League opponents? If we

:21:09.:21:13.

can get it right tactically, get it right in possession of the ball, we

:21:14.:21:19.
