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

The controversial Dungavel Immigration Removal Centre,

:00:00.:00:08.

It will be replaced with a new holding facility,

:00:09.:00:13.

Also on the programme, the implementation of

:00:14.:00:16.

the government's Named Person scheme is delayed for a year.

:00:17.:00:22.

More than 900 children spoke to ChildLine last year saying

:00:23.:00:24.

Astronomers from St Andrews discover planets aren't born slowly,

:00:25.:00:35.

but emerge relatively quickly and violently.

And Andy Murray's hopes of a US Open title fade as he's knocked

:00:38.:00:40.

The controversial Dungavel detention centre in south Lanarkshire

:00:41.:01:01.

is to close and be replaced by a short term holding facility

:01:02.:01:04.

Dungavel has been criticised over the years by campaigners who raised

:01:05.:01:12.

concerns about the treatment of detainees and the length

:01:13.:01:14.

The Home office says it's being closed because

:01:15.:01:18.

it's under-used, due to its remote location.

:01:19.:01:21.

Our reporter Laura Maxwell is at

:01:22.:01:23.

David, this is the only detention centre of its kind in Scotland. It's

:01:24.:01:37.

where people who've already had their claim for asylum rejected are

:01:38.:01:41.

held, essentially say they can't disappear before the Home Office

:01:42.:01:45.

deports them. It's for that reason that for so many people over the

:01:46.:01:52.

years, has become a byword for all that is wrong with that process.

:01:53.:01:58.

Dungavel. The former prison became a detention centre in 2001. It was

:01:59.:02:03.

this view from the inside which first brought it to the public's

:02:04.:02:08.

attention. Being there wasn't child's play. This family were

:02:09.:02:12.

detained for more than a year, unable to attend school. They were

:02:13.:02:16.

the first of many children to be sent to Dungavel with their parents.

:02:17.:02:22.

This woman was just 14 when she was taken there with her family in 2007.

:02:23.:02:29.

Not being able to do anything, that was the most difficult thing.

:02:30.:02:33.

Because I was the oldest and I knew English, I had to do a lot of

:02:34.:02:40.

translation with the lawyers and the officers. I felt really hopeless

:02:41.:02:44.

when I was translating because I knew that unless the government did

:02:45.:02:48.

something, unless there was a campaign, we were just going to be

:02:49.:02:52.

stuck there. Over the years Dungavel has been the scene of many protests.

:02:53.:02:57.

At first against the detention of children, which only ended in 2010.

:02:58.:03:02.

There was more controversy recently when the BBC revealed some detailing

:03:03.:03:07.

news were being held for more than a year. Torture victims have also been

:03:08.:03:12.

kept at the facility in contravention of the Home Office's

:03:13.:03:15.

guidelines. This long-term campaigner visits the centre to take

:03:16.:03:19.

in supplies to those being held there. Campaigners will be welcoming

:03:20.:03:24.

the closure of Dungavel but they will still be worried about the

:03:25.:03:28.

detention aspect which might still play a part in the asylum system.

:03:29.:03:34.

The detention centre did have a purpose, to stop failed asylum

:03:35.:03:37.

seekers from disappearing before they could be removed. Its closure

:03:38.:03:41.

won't stop that detention, instead it will be moved closer to Glasgow

:03:42.:03:43.

airport. The new short-term holding facility

:03:44.:04:09.

will have 51 beds. It will be built on this site, just minutes from

:04:10.:04:16.

Glasgow airport. If all goes to plan, Dungavel will be closed before

:04:17.:04:20.

the end of next year, and it will be replaced by that holding facility at

:04:21.:04:23.

the end of next year, and it will be Glasgow airport. The Home Office has

:04:24.:04:27.

yet to gain planning permission for that. The Scottish Government has

:04:28.:04:31.

welcomed the decision to close Dungavel although it says it will

:04:32.:04:35.

seek clarification about the way asylum seekers in Scotland will be

:04:36.:04:39.

treated. There is some concern any fast track process could affect

:04:40.:04:42.

their appeals process and impact on fast track process could affect

:04:43.:04:45.

their mental health. Similar questions are also being asked by

:04:46.:04:56.

church leaders and human rights campaigners who say this process

:04:57.:04:58.

could mean that asylum seekers end up locked up, hundreds of miles away

:04:59.:05:01.

from their family, friends and support networks they have built up

:05:02.:05:02.

in Scotland. The Education Secretary says

:05:03.:05:02.

an amended Named Person for Every Child scheme should be

:05:03.:05:04.

in place by August next year, The controversial scheme that sees

:05:05.:05:07.

a single point of contact for all children under the age

:05:08.:05:11.

of 18, was put on hold after the Supreme Court ruled

:05:12.:05:15.

that its plans for sharing For the avoidance of any doubt the

:05:16.:05:30.

government remains absolutely committed to the named person

:05:31.:05:37.

service. As he updated MSPs, the Education Secretary was clear. The

:05:38.:05:40.

Named Person scheme is going ahead but first the government would

:05:41.:05:44.

listen. For that reason the Scottish Government will undertake a

:05:45.:05:47.

three-month period of intense engagement in Scotland. We will take

:05:48.:05:51.

input from practitioners as well as parents, charities and young people,

:05:52.:05:55.

those who support the policy and those who have concerns about it.

:05:56.:06:00.

Every child under the age of 18 was supposed to have a named person by

:06:01.:06:05.

now, a health visitor or teacher, assigned to look after their

:06:06.:06:09.

well-being. But the scheme is put on hold after the Supreme Court ruled

:06:10.:06:13.

part of the controversial legislation that dealt with

:06:14.:06:15.

information sharing breached human rights law. Three judges ruled that

:06:16.:06:23.

the Named Person scheme was unquestionably legitimate and

:06:24.:06:23.

benign... But they said that it was perfectly

:06:24.:06:35.

possible that information could be shared with authorities without the

:06:36.:06:40.

child being aware. The court stated that even after the information

:06:41.:06:44.

sharing provisions are sorted out the Named Person scheme is still in

:06:45.:06:49.

danger of constituting a disproportionate and therefore

:06:50.:06:52.

unlawful interference with family life. Labour supported the principle

:06:53.:06:57.

but again called for 16 and 17-year-olds to be removed. It seems

:06:58.:07:01.

absurd given that a 16-year-old can vote, marry, pay tax, all as an

:07:02.:07:08.

adult. To remove them would give a strong signal that while the

:07:09.:07:11.

government is not surrendering an named person policy, it is

:07:12.:07:16.

listening, and not only to the Supreme Court. That was a concession

:07:17.:07:22.

Mr Swinney said the government was willing to consider. The campaign

:07:23.:07:25.

group that brought about the legal challenge described today's

:07:26.:07:28.

announcement has laughable saying the government should be apologising

:07:29.:07:32.

to parents. But they say they welcome the chance of dialogue with

:07:33.:07:35.

the Deputy First Minister. Lisa Summers, Edinburgh.

:07:36.:07:39.

Let's get more on this from Brian Taylor at Holyrood. This is about

:07:40.:07:45.

complying with the law but it's about much more than that, isn't it?

:07:46.:07:51.

Much more indeed. It's about the law but it's about bringing people with

:07:52.:07:54.

the Scottish Government. In terms of the law I would expect the UK

:07:55.:07:59.

provisions of data protection may be adopted and written onto the face of

:08:00.:08:06.

the Scottish act. To make it still clearer that those who practising

:08:07.:08:12.

Named Person scheme are obliged to adhere to data protection. It's not

:08:13.:08:16.

just about that legalistic or change. John Swinney quietly but

:08:17.:08:23.

also quite frankly conceded that the Scottish Government hadn't got it

:08:24.:08:26.

right in bringing people with them on this proposal. The proposal

:08:27.:08:31.

perhaps seems to make sense to those who are experts in the field but

:08:32.:08:35.

causes worries and anxieties for parents perhaps coming up against

:08:36.:08:38.

this concept for the first time. I think that is what Mr Swinney will

:08:39.:08:46.

spend the full year's delay in seeking to put right. He's quite

:08:47.:08:50.

determined to go ahead with the scheme. It's about the law, yes but

:08:51.:08:52.

it's also about tone. A former Belgian Prime Minister

:08:53.:08:56.

who believes Scotland should be able to stay in the EU is to lead Brexit

:08:57.:08:59.

talks for the European Parliament. Guy Verhofstadt said the day

:09:00.:09:02.

after the EU referendum it would be "wrong" for Scotland to be taken out

:09:03.:09:05.

of the bloc after most He met with the First Minister,

:09:06.:09:08.

Nicola Sturgeon in Brussels The European Parliament will have

some as young as ten, contacted ChildLine in Scotland last

year, saying they were suicidal. That's almost double

:09:27.:09:29.

the number five years ago. Labour has attacked the government,

:09:30.:09:32.

saying waiting times for child mental health

:09:33.:09:36.

treatments are lengthening. Our Home Affairs Correspondent,

:09:37.:09:39.

Reevel Alderson reports. Hi, you're through to someone you

:09:40.:09:52.

can talk to at Childline. ChildLine's call centres are

:09:53.:09:55.

handling almost double the number of calls from young people with

:09:56.:09:57.

handling almost double the number of suicidal thoughts than five years

:09:58.:10:01.

ago. Including children as young as ten. The charity says it is positive

:10:02.:10:07.

that children have confidence in talking although they often start

:10:08.:10:10.

off with a more trivial matter. They may talk to us about exam pressures

:10:11.:10:17.

and stress or bullying. When they feel relaxed they may then go on to

:10:18.:10:23.

say that they feel there is no hope, no way out and suicide is the only

:10:24.:10:26.

say that they feel there is no hope, answer. Talking is a fabulous first

:10:27.:10:30.

step to getting children and young people the right help. This

:10:31.:10:35.

eight-year-old was a mysterious boy who looked after his sister Ashley.

:10:36.:10:41.

One day aged just 12 he took his own life, leaving his family devastated.

:10:42.:10:46.

Now, Ashley is training as a ChildLine counsellor, wanting to

:10:47.:10:50.

raise awareness of the service to prevent other families from

:10:51.:10:53.

suffering. I've seen the devastation it leaves behind, to the whole

:10:54.:11:00.

family. And not just family, friends and everyone. If we can stop that

:11:01.:11:05.

happening to even one child through ChildLine, then it's been worth it.

:11:06.:11:13.

The figures were raised in Holyrood with Labour claiming increasing

:11:14.:11:17.

numbers of young Scots are now waiting for mental health treatment.

:11:18.:11:20.

The First Minister admitted demand had increased. Actually I take the

:11:21.:11:25.

view that that is a positive development. It doesn't sound like

:11:26.:11:28.

it but it means the stigma associated with mental health is

:11:29.:11:33.

decreasing, and more people, in particular more young people, are

:11:34.:11:39.

feeling able to come forward. In the summer Labour revealed that 460

:11:40.:11:43.

young Scots had waited over a year for the treatment they desperately

:11:44.:11:49.

need. This week 's figures see that rise to 608. That is utterly

:11:50.:11:53.

shameful and nothing short of a national scandal. ChildLine is now

:11:54.:11:58.

calling for better access to services for young people who feel

:11:59.:11:59.

they have nowhere else to turn. A report on the care of a woman

:12:00.:12:03.

with post-natal depression who killed her baby has concluded

:12:04.:12:05.

that chances to refer her Erin Sutherland admitted

:12:06.:12:08.

the culpable homicide of her daughter Chloe,

:12:09.:12:12.

who was nine months old, on the grounds of

:12:13.:12:14.

diminished responsibility. The Mental Welfare Commission made

:12:15.:12:18.

a series of recommendations to improve post-natal

:12:19.:12:21.

mental health care. Community specialist Perry mental

:12:22.:12:35.

health team had a cut-off limit for new referrals when the baby reached

:12:36.:12:39.

six months of age. In this particular case, we think she

:12:40.:12:43.

shouldn't have been treated as a new referral at that point. She'd had

:12:44.:12:47.

previous contact and a known history. There should have been

:12:48.:12:51.

enough flexibility in the referral criteria for her to be seen when the

:12:52.:12:53.

baby was beyond six months. You're watching BBC

Reporting Scotland. The controversial Dungavel

again at the Gaiety Theatre in Ayr, Astronomers at St Andrews university

:13:01.:13:08.

have observed tantalising glimpses of how our own planet may

:13:09.:13:19.

have been born. They did it by watching

the longest, deepest eclipse It suggests planets aren't born

:13:25.:13:27.

slowly, but emerge relatively Here's our science correspondent

:13:28.:13:32.

Kenneth MacDonald. To get the best possible view of the

:13:33.:13:47.

heavens, we've taken telescopes higher and higher, to the tops of

:13:48.:13:52.

mountains high above atmospheric and light pollution, or better still

:13:53.:13:55.

into space. But there are still things to be discovered closer to

:13:56.:13:58.

home. At first glance this might not seem like the best site for a

:13:59.:14:04.

telescope. Surrounded by streetlights. But they have observed

:14:05.:14:11.

something remarkable here. This is the James Gregory telescope, the

:14:12.:14:15.

largest operational optical telescope in Scotland at St Andrews

:14:16.:14:19.

University Observatory. And this is the star they've been gazing at.

:14:20.:14:27.

It's like our own sun but a lot younger. Our son is 4.5 billion

:14:28.:14:34.

years old and this store is only one or 2 million years old. It's really

:14:35.:14:39.

a baby star. The star is known for its variable brightness. Recently it

:14:40.:14:48.

vanished for two years. If you just compared the brightness with these

:14:49.:14:51.

two, that's roughly the same brightness. Over the past two years,

:14:52.:14:58.

and this is an image taken by the telescope, now it has become much

:14:59.:15:03.

fainter. The probable reason? A disc of stardust blocking our view which

:15:04.:15:06.

means we are having to change our view of how planets are born. For

:15:07.:15:12.

many years we have thought planets form very slowly and steadily. That

:15:13.:15:19.

particles just stick together and grow and grow. But now looking at

:15:20.:15:26.

this we find that these are actually very dynamic processes, very violent

:15:27.:15:30.

things happening in the systems which we were not expecting to see.

:15:31.:15:35.

They are in motion, they are changing on timescales comparable to

:15:36.:15:39.

human life spans. We can watch them evolving in time. We may be getting

:15:40.:15:45.

a glimpse in real of how our own planet came into being. Who knows

:15:46.:15:50.

what our solar system looks like when it was young. We can't actually

:15:51.:15:54.

go back in time. The best thing we can do is look at other stars at

:15:55.:15:58.

that age and try and figure out what is going on there. The James Gregory

:15:59.:16:04.

telescope is more than 50 years old but it's proving it can still expand

:16:05.:16:05.

our knowledge of the universe. A look now at other stories

:16:06.:16:09.

from across the country. More than half 1 million acres of

:16:10.:16:19.

land in Scotland are now owned by communities. Ministers say that

:16:20.:16:22.

ventures like the community buyout of the park estate on the island of

:16:23.:16:26.

Lewis have helped to reverse population decline and boost the

:16:27.:16:30.

economy but the Conservatives say that recently introduced land reform

:16:31.:16:35.

laws mean that there is too much government interference in land

:16:36.:16:38.

ownership. The multi-million pound first phase of an overhaul of

:16:39.:16:42.

schools provision in dumb freeze has officially begun. A ground-breaking

:16:43.:16:48.

ceremony at Saint James 's -- Saint Josephs College started the scheme.

:16:49.:16:53.

The school will be overhauled and a new campus will be built in the

:16:54.:16:59.

north-west of the town. And a listed railway turntable close to Aberdeen

:17:00.:17:02.

rail station has been removed for refurbishment. More than 100 years

:17:03.:17:08.

old, the steel structure at the old Ferryhill Depot is one of only three

:17:09.:17:13.

left in Scotland. A fully operating turntable would allow more steam

:17:14.:17:18.

trains to visit Aberdeen. We are providing servicing facilities to

:17:19.:17:21.

steam locomotives which come on steam charters. The Borders railway

:17:22.:17:26.

has been extremely successful over the last year in operating steam

:17:27.:17:30.

charters and we want to cash in on that and get some of the tourists

:17:31.:17:34.

coming to Aberdeen by train and steam train. One of Glasgow's oldest

:17:35.:17:41.

buildings is to undergo a revamp as part of plans to generate the

:17:42.:17:45.

Easterhouse area. Glasgow City Council is to spend half ?1 million

:17:46.:17:52.

refurbishing problem for -- problem whole house, dating back to the 15th

:17:53.:17:59.

century -- Provan Hall. It will be one of seven developments.

:18:00.:18:01.

Now, you can't win them all - that was Andy Murray's reaction

:18:02.:18:06.

to defeat in the quarter final of the US Open.

:18:07.:18:08.

The Wimbledon and Olympic champion's hopes of adding another Grand Slam

:18:09.:18:11.

to his collection were ended by Japan's Kei Nishikori.

:18:12.:18:16.

But as Kheredine Idessane reports from New York, the Scot is content

:18:17.:18:18.

Andy Murray's dreams of a second US open title in New York are over and

:18:19.:18:30.

the sun has finally set on a golden summer for the world number two. The

:18:31.:18:35.

end when it came was dramatic, Kei Nishikori coming from 2-1 down to

:18:36.:18:40.

win 7-5 in the fifth. The Scotsman was clear about one thing, for him

:18:41.:18:44.

there is deep disappointment but not a let down. I haven't let anyone

:18:45.:18:50.

down, certainly not myself, I've pushed as hard as I could over the

:18:51.:18:53.

last be months and I'm very proud of what I've done. If someone had

:18:54.:18:58.

offered me the summer that I've had before Wimbledon, I probably would

:18:59.:19:04.

have signed up for that. A defeat for Andy Murray was the last thing

:19:05.:19:07.

anyone predicted early on, a scintillating first set was secured

:19:08.:19:12.

6-1 in just over half an hour but from a breakdown in the second set,

:19:13.:19:15.

the Japanese world number seven levelled the match and it seemed

:19:16.:19:20.

order had been restored when Murray reasserted his authority by taking

:19:21.:19:24.

the third that. Then, the moment that momentum moved away. A noise

:19:25.:19:31.

from the stadium PA system let the umpire to stop play halfway to the

:19:32.:19:35.

point to Andy Murray's annoyance. He never recovered his composure,

:19:36.:19:38.

losing the point, the game and his next service game. He could complain

:19:39.:19:43.

all you like to the supervisor but that wouldn't stop Nishikori

:19:44.:19:48.

levelling at 2-2. A roller-coaster fifth set comprised of five breaks

:19:49.:19:51.

of serve and when Murray lost his, Nishikori punished him. Having

:19:52.:19:56.

played so well in patches against Nishikori and especially against

:19:57.:19:58.

Dimitrov in the previous round it is a shock that Andy Murray is out of

:19:59.:20:03.

the US Open. He now needs to re-energise. A week tomorrow he'll

:20:04.:20:08.

be on home soil in Scotland beginning a Davis Cup semifinal

:20:09.:20:11.

against Argentina at Glasgow's Emirates arena.

:20:12.:20:14.

One of the country's most famous footballers believes the national

:20:15.:20:19.

team will come good again, because we're due a cycle

:20:20.:20:21.

The former Scotland captain Graeme Souness was speaking

:20:22.:20:27.

to the Scotland's Game series, which in episode three tonight

:20:28.:20:30.

reflects on the national team's failure to reach a major

:20:31.:20:33.

We are trying to get back! A touch from Jim Leighton and it is number

:20:34.:20:48.

two. The 23rd of June, 1998, the last time Scotland played a major

:20:49.:20:52.

tournament match. Defeat to Morocco but at least we were there which

:20:53.:20:56.

cannot be said about nine international showpieces sense.

:20:57.:21:05.

After every disappointment, we must sing the chorus about video games,

:21:06.:21:06.

After every disappointment, we must not enough resources, the cold

:21:07.:21:10.

weather, I think it is simply not enough kids playing not enough

:21:11.:21:16.

football. Many would argue that other factors have played their

:21:17.:21:18.

part. Some questionable appointments. Please call me. Some

:21:19.:21:27.

part. Some questionable questionable decisions, with
