That is it, we are back with the latest

:00:00.:00:00.

Now on BBC One Scotland its time for Reporting Scotland.

:00:00.:00:00.

The mother of a teenager murdered 20 years ago makes a new appeal

:00:07.:00:13.

for help to find her killer as police review the case.

:00:14.:00:17.

This has given me fresh hope, it has given me hope that there may be

:00:18.:00:26.

light at the end of the tunnel. We have a special report from Serbia

:00:27.:00:27.

where Scottish aid workers say the plight of thousands of stranded

:00:28.:00:31.

refugees must not be forgotten. A disciplinary hearing is told

:00:32.:00:35.

a social worker involved in the case of murdered toddler Liam Fee

:00:36.:00:38.

was disorganised and chaotic. A record year for the Edinburgh

:00:39.:00:47.

fringe with box office And on your bike, the row

:00:48.:00:50.

between business and pedal power in the capital over plans

:00:51.:00:55.

for a major cycle route. The mother of a teenage girl

:00:56.:01:10.

murdered 20 years ago has made a fresh appeal for help

:01:11.:01:16.

to find her killer. 14 year old Caroline Glachan

:01:17.:01:22.

was found dead on the banks of the River Leven in Dunbartonshire

:01:23.:01:27.

in August 1996, about a mile Despite numerous appeals, no-one has

:01:28.:01:30.

been arrested over her death. Here's our Home Affairs

:01:31.:01:34.

Correspondent, Reevel Alderson. No one has ever been arrested over

:01:35.:01:41.

the murder of 14-year-old Caroline Glachan 20 years ago this weekend

:01:42.:01:45.

but 300 items gathered by police at the time of her death are now being

:01:46.:01:51.

re-examined by forensic scientists in a major reinvestigation of this

:01:52.:01:55.

cold case, giving her mother renewed hope after years of turmoil. This

:01:56.:02:02.

has given me fresh hope, I am more upbeat about it than I have been for

:02:03.:02:06.

a long time. Especially the forensics side of it, that has given

:02:07.:02:11.

me real hope that there could be a light at the end of the tunnel. CCTV

:02:12.:02:17.

footage just hours before she died shows Caroline with her best friend,

:02:18.:02:22.

Joanne Menzies. They parted sometime later when Caroline went to her

:02:23.:02:28.

boyfriend's house and it is still preying on Joanne's mind. I still

:02:29.:02:32.

hold a lot of guilt because I feel I should have been with her. It feels

:02:33.:02:37.

I could have stopped two I feel I could have stopped it if I went with

:02:38.:02:42.

her. -- I feel I could have stopped it. I don't associate with many

:02:43.:02:45.

people. Police say they wanted to trace a man with pointed features

:02:46.:02:52.

close to the tow path where she died and officers are still keen to speak

:02:53.:02:56.

to him. Forensic scientists are working with state of the art DNA

:02:57.:03:00.

technology to gain vital information that couldn't have been obtained 20

:03:01.:03:03.

years ago. Detectives believe the information about Caroline's killer

:03:04.:03:08.

remains in the local community but forensic evidence will help to point

:03:09.:03:15.

them to the answer. There have been a lot of assumptions that Caroline

:03:16.:03:18.

was involved in one thing all the other, exposed to drugs, alcohol,

:03:19.:03:23.

boyfriends, girlfriends etc, but ultimately she had no drugs in her

:03:24.:03:28.

system, no alcohol, she was a bright 14-year-old schoolgirl who was

:03:29.:03:36.

working on the -- walking on the tow path and she was brutally attacked.

:03:37.:03:45.

Caroline was described as a fun loving teenager with everything to

:03:46.:03:48.

live for. The mystery of her murder will feature on the BBC's Crimewatch

:03:49.:03:50.

programme next Thursday. Scottish aid workers are warning

:03:51.:03:53.

that refugees stranded in Europe Even though the numbers crossing

:03:54.:03:56.

Europe have drastically fallen, many have been caught up

:03:57.:04:00.

in tightened restrictions on border In the first of two special reports

:04:01.:04:03.

from Serbia, here's Cameron Buttle. On a quiet backstreet of central

:04:04.:04:17.

Belgrade, a small aid post for refugees and migrants.

:04:18.:04:26.

Inside, it is crammed, hot and noisy, getting more and more busy by

:04:27.:04:33.

the day. Aid workers here say that 40% of the refugees are children,

:04:34.:04:37.

like this little girl from Syria, who told me the worst part of her

:04:38.:04:40.

journey was crossing through the mountains and dark forests. She is

:04:41.:04:50.

saying that the hardest way was in Macedonia. She says she walked for

:04:51.:05:00.

60 hours. Here, they tried their best to give out the basics, food,

:05:01.:05:02.

water and some shelter but they are best to give out the basics, food,

:05:03.:05:09.

struggling to cope. Since the border closures, we have seen the lack of

:05:10.:05:14.

organisation that was designed to help people move to Europe and find

:05:15.:05:17.

a place of safety has disappeared, Borders have closed, people are

:05:18.:05:22.

still getting through. In a back room they try and help young

:05:23.:05:25.

children who have already experienced great trauma. Bright,

:05:26.:05:30.

carefree pictures and colourings hide a much darker reality. We

:05:31.:05:34.

should always be very careful with how we are going to deal with

:05:35.:05:39.

trauma, we really need different circumstances to deal with it.

:05:40.:05:43.

That's why we use this kind of bored to identify some risks when we

:05:44.:05:51.

should involve some kind of specialised professionals. We are in

:05:52.:05:54.

a different part of Belgrade, this is a drop in centre for families who

:05:55.:06:00.

have just arrived in Serbia, run by many different organisations. The

:06:01.:06:04.

aid workers tell us that while the numbers of people arriving here are

:06:05.:06:07.

going down, they feel that families like these are in more danger than

:06:08.:06:13.

ever before. Children who are travelling through Europe are often

:06:14.:06:16.

separated from their families, they are using smugglers to get them

:06:17.:06:20.

through, which makes them vulnerable to violence and abuse and possibly

:06:21.:06:23.

to falling into the hands of traffickers. We must ensure that

:06:24.:06:28.

there is sustained action to put in place a system of support that

:06:29.:06:32.

provides help to children wherever they need it and whenever they need

:06:33.:06:37.

it and that isn't happening now. This lady left Iraq with her

:06:38.:06:41.

children in January and now they are stuck near the bottom of a list of

:06:42.:06:44.

thousands of people waiting to cross the. She tells me that she had lost

:06:45.:06:51.

hope but feels so close to seeing the rest of her family already in

:06:52.:06:55.

Germany -- cross the border. No one knows how long they will be stranded

:06:56.:06:59.

here, but they know that there will be many more joining her everyday.

:07:00.:07:03.

A disciplinary hearing has heard that a social worker involved

:07:04.:07:07.

in the case of murdered toddler, Liam Fee, was disorganised

:07:08.:07:09.

Lesley Bate faces multiple charges from her time

:07:10.:07:12.

Lesley Bate faces charges involving 16 children from December, 2011, two

:07:13.:07:26.

August, 2014 and it is alleged she failed to take the necessary steps

:07:27.:07:30.

to minimise actual or potential risk to them. It is understood that one

:07:31.:07:35.

child is Liam Fee, the two-year-old who was murdered by his mother and

:07:36.:07:40.

partner in March, 2014. It is alleged that Lesley Bate failed to

:07:41.:07:44.

follow up a referral more than a year earlier about bruising to

:07:45.:07:47.

Liam's face and concerns that he had a sore neck. Rachel and Naomi's fees

:07:48.:07:56.

trial heard that Liam had scratches and bruises to his face. A woman who

:07:57.:08:04.

used the same child minder told social services that she was

:08:05.:08:07.

concerned about Liam. The hearing being held here in Dundee was told

:08:08.:08:11.

that Lesley Bate was under a disciplinary investigation and was

:08:12.:08:15.

off sick following Liam Fee's death and was later transferred to another

:08:16.:08:20.

team. Her manager, James Ross, told the hearing that she was erratic,

:08:21.:08:24.

disorganised and chaotic. Lesley Bate is not attending the hearing

:08:25.:08:28.

which is due to run until Friday. The hearing was told she had willing

:08:29.:08:32.

quest her registration as a social worker but did not admit any of the

:08:33.:08:36.

charges against her -- willing quest her registration. -- Rillington

:08:37.:08:44.

Another record year for the Edinburgh Fringe.

:08:45.:08:45.

And the Scottish pooches hoping to become the top dogs in Europe.

:08:46.:08:52.

It follows concerns some of them may have been trying

:08:53.:09:00.

to cram too much in, at the expense of the basics

:09:01.:09:03.

Here's our education correspondent Jamie McIvor.

:09:04.:09:09.

these youngsters are in no doubt how important the basics are. Reading

:09:10.:09:16.

and writing is one of a teacher's top biology is. When you grow up it

:09:17.:09:21.

helps you to get a good job and have a good education -- top priorities.

:09:22.:09:28.

It makes you smarter. Why is it important to work hard at your

:09:29.:09:32.

reading and writing? So that when you are older, it means you are

:09:33.:09:38.

smart. Today, the school got a visit from the Education Secretary, who

:09:39.:09:42.

wants to make a clear point, that literacy, numerous ea and health and

:09:43.:09:45.

well-being are the key aims of the curriculum. At the heart of success

:09:46.:09:51.

in Scottish education will be the most important resource we have, the

:09:52.:09:54.

ability of teachers to teach young people and what this guidance is

:09:55.:09:58.

designed to do is to clarify and simplify that approach for the

:09:59.:10:01.

teaching profession and that will assist us in closing the attainment

:10:02.:10:06.

gap in Scottish education. This document is a list of dos and

:10:07.:10:09.

don'ts, the kind of impact it will have on children across Scotland

:10:10.:10:14.

will very much depend on how individual teachers and schools put

:10:15.:10:19.

it into practice. It is all about giving more priority to the --

:10:20.:10:25.

clarity to them it -- clarity to the curriculum, with pirate is of

:10:26.:10:29.

prioritising the basics and cutting bureaucracy, don't do rigid planning

:10:30.:10:36.

and too many things at once. The key thing is about freeing up teachers

:10:37.:10:40.

to be creative and deliver a curriculum that suits their pupils

:10:41.:10:45.

and to help that long, we need to be absolutely clear about what is

:10:46.:10:48.

required and in many cases what is not required. Why is more clarity

:10:49.:10:53.

needed? One concern is the difficulty in improving standards in

:10:54.:10:58.

literacy and new Morrissey. The other, workload and bureaucracy for

:10:59.:11:04.

teachers. They have issued clarification of their guidelines

:11:05.:11:09.

but but we want to make sure that this time the rhetoric becomes

:11:10.:11:15.

reality. There will be few obvious changes for pupils or parents, the

:11:16.:11:18.

test is whether the guidance actually helps improve performance

:11:19.:11:19.

over time. But tonight one big union

:11:20.:11:22.

in secondary schools has confirmed it will go ahead with a ballot

:11:23.:11:25.

on industrial action The SSTA says it's welcoming

:11:26.:11:27.

Mr Swinney's efforts to reduce the workload,

:11:28.:11:32.

but it still has concerns, especially about the

:11:33.:11:35.

new qualifications. The result of their ballot is due

:11:36.:11:37.

at the end of next month. EIS members are already on a partial

:11:38.:11:42.

work to rule because of Two American airline pilots have

:11:43.:11:44.

been released on bail and charged with being under the influence

:12:08.:12:10.

and Fringe draw to a close tonight For the first time the International

:12:11.:12:15.

festival sold over ?4 While the Fringe, which is open

:12:16.:12:21.

access, issued 2.5 million tickets, Our arts correspondent

:12:22.:12:25.

Pauline McLean reports. It was already the biggest

:12:26.:12:41.

festival in the world and this year it got a little bit, at least in

:12:42.:12:44.

terms of the number of tickets issued. Nearly 2.5 million, close to

:12:45.:12:54.

8% up on last year. Individual shows set their own records. Glasgow

:12:55.:12:58.

Girls, getting 10,000 tickets long before the run ended. Probably the

:12:59.:13:03.

best ever this year. The growth in numbers has been really great and

:13:04.:13:08.

the same is true across, we work with the other three venues here and

:13:09.:13:15.

I think overall we've seen a seven, 8% increase this year, which is very

:13:16.:13:21.

good. This is all I'm doing for 20 minutes. It isn't just about selling

:13:22.:13:26.

tickets, there are other ways to measure success. We've had an

:13:27.:13:30.

amazing year this year. We have had many awards and we've had lots of

:13:31.:13:36.

audiences, the best comedy Newcomer, Scott Gibson. Access of evil -- axis

:13:37.:13:45.

of evil, Crawford. Some shows at show awareness rather than a laugh

:13:46.:13:48.

but it is showing a greater awareness of the Fringe which is not

:13:49.:13:52.

commercial. There was a sense of them and us but that is breaking

:13:53.:13:57.

down and the Fringe is a home of many different ideas and feeling

:13:58.:14:03.

healthier and healthier. For the International Festival it has also

:14:04.:14:06.

been a record year with ?4 million worth of tickets sold for the first

:14:07.:14:12.

time. It seems that they are both in rude health.

:14:13.:14:20.

A Shetland energy firm's tidal turbine system has become the first

:14:21.:14:23.

in the world to deliver electricity to the grid.

:14:24.:14:25.

Nova Innovation says its two turbines will feed up to 100

:14:26.:14:27.

kilowatts of electricity, which is enough to

:14:28.:14:29.

This is ground-breaking, pioneering. The birth of a new industry of

:14:30.:14:47.

reliable and renewable energy which could help us achieve our climate

:14:48.:14:51.

change goals, reduced carbon emissions and provide jobs,

:14:52.:14:55.

employment both here in the UK and the potential to be exported

:14:56.:14:56.

overseas. The castle which serves

:14:57.:15:00.

as Inverness Sheriff Court is to be transformed

:15:01.:15:02.

into a tourist attraction. Plans have been unveiled

:15:03.:15:05.

for a new so-called Justice Centre which would house district

:15:06.:15:08.

and sheriff courts and agencies It'll be the blueprint for a number

:15:09.:15:10.

of similar justrice centres Plans for a major bike route

:15:11.:15:14.

through Edinburgh city centre will be considered

:15:15.:15:18.

by councillors tomorrow. Supporters say it would encourage

:15:19.:15:21.

more of us to get on our bikes. But businesses in the west

:15:22.:15:24.

of the city claim it could destroy We respect you. We are saying, have

:15:25.:15:42.

your cycle lanes but don't interfere with my livelihood. Opinions clashed

:15:43.:15:49.

as cyclists in favour of the route met shop owners. These businesses

:15:50.:15:53.

say they cannot survive if the existing parking and loading bays

:15:54.:15:58.

are reduced to make way for bikes. 50% of our business comes from cars

:15:59.:16:02.

passing, we are concerned by the impact. We're not millionaires by

:16:03.:16:09.

any means and any small reduction in our income would have a huge impact.

:16:10.:16:17.

The proposed cycle route would link lease in the East to George Street.

:16:18.:16:25.

It would carry on through Haymarket to rose burnt error is, where it has

:16:26.:16:33.

proved to be controversial. In this morning's rush hour, cyclists

:16:34.:16:37.

travelled along the route to show their support. It will open it up

:16:38.:16:40.

and make people think, I can do that. In London, they have put in

:16:41.:16:46.

high-quality roots and Le Mans of people using it is mind blowing.

:16:47.:16:50.

About 10% of people in Edinburgh cycle already. There is massive

:16:51.:16:53.

potential and if we can make the streets friendlier, it will make as

:16:54.:16:57.

change for the city. The Scottish Government says it is committed to

:16:58.:17:02.

getting most of us out of cars and onto bikes and making good cycle

:17:03.:17:06.

routes is key to that. But many people here say putting Ann Main

:17:07.:17:10.

cycle route through a busy arterial route like this is only going to

:17:11.:17:16.

create more traffic problems. If you have 600 cars trying to get to two

:17:17.:17:21.

lanes and you have an arrangement that allows them to filter right and

:17:22.:17:23.

left, if you reduce that to one that allows them to filter right and

:17:24.:17:33.

lane, anybody turning right and will obstruct the traffic coming behind.

:17:34.:17:34.

lane, anybody turning right and will You will create traffic jams.

:17:35.:17:36.

Councillors will consider the options tomorrow.

:17:37.:17:40.

Just as we are starting to catch our breath after the Olympics,

:17:41.:17:43.

another team of top Scottish athletes are about to head off

:17:44.:17:45.

to compete in a prestigious European competitio.

:17:46.:17:48.

It's the first time a Scottish team has taken part in these

:17:49.:17:51.

Open European Championships, where concentration

:17:52.:17:52.

Aileen Clarke has been watching them in training.

:17:53.:17:55.

Touch. Their trainers have got the costumes and dogs

:17:56.:18:11.

Gertie, have got their moves. Heather Smith from Troon has

:18:12.:18:17.

triumphed in these events in the past. She has been training dogs for

:18:18.:18:24.

years. They very quickly pick up tricks, dogs like learning tricks,

:18:25.:18:30.

people like teaching tricks, it builds a bond, it builds listening

:18:31.:18:35.

in the dog. It is the best sport to do. These team-mates have adopted a

:18:36.:18:40.

faulty Towers routine to show off their skills to the judges. So Roxy

:18:41.:18:48.

the Australian Shepherd will have to keep this waiter of the wine. Roxy

:18:49.:18:56.

is quite taken by her own starring role. It is difficult when you are

:18:57.:19:01.

doing it to music, because your tricks have got to be at exactly the

:19:02.:19:07.

right time, you have got to start at the right time, and finish exactly

:19:08.:19:10.

when the music finishes, so that takes a lot of practice getting that

:19:11.:19:15.

right. It can take up to a year getting a routine right. Since

:19:16.:19:22.

Ashley and Pudsey won Britain's got talent ball years ago, there has

:19:23.:19:26.

been a growing interest in canine choreography. Lunar two years old,

:19:27.:19:39.

will be the youngest member Angie is making the most of every opportunity

:19:40.:19:44.

to practice. She loves it. In the house, will do random tricks if you

:19:45.:19:51.

look at her. Hiding her face is the favourite. She likes getting the

:19:52.:19:57.

treats as well. I have got their attention, but that is because I

:19:58.:20:01.

have their favourite toy and treats, so let's give it a go. Come on,

:20:02.:20:08.

girls, beg. Two out of three isn't bad.

:20:09.:20:09.

That is difficult to follow. Beautiful Day and we have had this

:20:10.:20:23.

picture from one of our viewers. These blue skies indicative of what

:20:24.:20:28.

many of us have seen. Cloud cover pushing into the country as we

:20:29.:20:33.

speak. Train crossing the central belt and the Highlands. The Northern

:20:34.:20:43.

Isles and western Scotland, bits and pieces of rain with murky

:20:44.:20:48.

conditions. Quite an muggy night, lows of 13 to 15 Celsius. Fresh wind

:20:49.:20:58.

across the west coast. Tomorrow, and east, west split initially. Cloudy,

:20:59.:21:02.

damp and Rosalie in the West. The rain clears away from Shetland so it

:21:03.:21:05.

is an improving day. For most of that is an improving day, but in the

:21:06.:21:12.

afternoon with the wind direction, the Southwest should brighten up.

:21:13.:21:17.

The Glasgow area looking at sunshine. Towards North Argyll,

:21:18.:21:22.

coastal paths of the West Highlands, damp, drizzle and hill fog.

:21:23.:21:27.

Temperature is not bad, but windy along the West Coast. Something

:21:28.:21:28.

brighter for the Northern Isles in along the West Coast. Something

:21:29.:21:33.

the afternoon. Sunshine for Caithness. Sunshine towards

:21:34.:21:35.

Inverness. The highest temperatures for the North, 22, maybe 23 Celsius.

:21:36.:21:43.

Eastern Scotland nice in the sunshine. It stays dry and sunny for

:21:44.:21:46.

the first part of the evening then we see another band of rain pushing

:21:47.:21:50.

in from the north-west extending across the country. It is an

:21:51.:21:55.

overnight feature. We take a look at the pressure chart. The weather

:21:56.:21:58.

fronts pulls away taking the rain with it. On Wednesday, the winds in

:21:59.:22:03.

the West will introduce showers but a brighter and fresher feel to

:22:04.:22:07.
