It's goodbye from me - and on BBC One we now join the BBC's

:00:00.:00:00.

A convicted killer has denied stabbing Indian waiter

:00:00.:00:09.

Surjit Singh Chhokar almost 18 years ago.

:00:10.:00:13.

Scotland's private sector firms haven't been insulated from

:00:14.:00:17.

The families from war-torn Syria, finally reunited, and yet

:00:18.:00:21.

still fighting to be allowed to stay together.

:00:22.:00:28.

TRANSLATION: I almost died to be with them, to have them with me. I

:00:29.:00:34.

cannot imagine life without them. Faith leaders and

:00:35.:00:36.

charities call for more Celtic head to Spain ahead

:00:37.:00:38.

of tomorrow's opening Champions League group stage

:00:39.:00:42.

clash with Barcelona. And almost a hundred

:00:43.:00:44.

of Scotland's top buildings, The nephew of a man accused

:00:45.:00:45.

of murdering a waiter in Lanarkshire in 1998 has denied

:00:46.:01:08.

committing the crime. Andrew Coulter was giving evidence

:01:09.:01:11.

at the trial of his uncle Ronnie Coulter who's

:01:12.:01:14.

accused of stabbing Andrew Coulter admitted attacking

:01:15.:01:15.

Mr Chhokar with a home made bat on the night he died but said

:01:16.:01:22.

he didn't murder him. From the High Court in Glasgow,

:01:23.:01:25.

Andrew Black reports. Andrew Coulter told the court that

:01:26.:01:38.

on the date of November four, 1998, he went out looking for money to buy

:01:39.:01:44.

alcohol and broke into a flat which turned out to belong to Mr Chhokar.

:01:45.:01:51.

He said he took the gyro cheque he found there Richie it then cashed

:01:52.:01:56.

after forging the signature of Mr Chhokar. The partner of Mr Chhokar

:01:57.:02:00.

found out what had happened and talked of calling the police. Andrew

:02:01.:02:04.

Coulter told the court that later that night he along with money

:02:05.:02:09.

Coulter and another man, travelled to the home of Mrs Price and found

:02:10.:02:14.

Mr Chhokar coming home from work. Andrew Coulter said he shouted at Mr

:02:15.:02:18.

Chhokar, you had better not involve the police. Andrew Coulter said at

:02:19.:02:23.

this stage Mr Chhokar swung a bottle at him but it missed. Mr Chhokar

:02:24.:02:28.

said he then swung a home-made bat at Mr Chhokar which struck on arm.

:02:29.:02:32.

Andrew Coulter said then his knee gave way and it collapsed on the

:02:33.:02:36.

ground. He said he and David Montgomerie left the scene and

:02:37.:02:38.

Ronnie Coulter was nowhere to be seen. The prosecutor asked Andrew

:02:39.:02:44.

Coulter as he had stabbed Mr Chhokar, Mr Coulter responded he had

:02:45.:02:50.

not. The court also heard that Andrew Coulter, now 35, stabbed and

:02:51.:02:55.

killed a man called Patrick Kelly in 1999 and was sentenced to six years

:02:56.:03:00.

detention. Before beginning his evidence the judge told Mr Coulter

:03:01.:03:04.

he did not have to answer any questions which might incriminate

:03:05.:03:08.

him in the murder of Mr Chhokar. Ronnie Coulter has been tried for a

:03:09.:03:11.

second time for the murder, which he denies. The case continues.

:03:12.:03:15.

Scotland's private sector firms saw their output

:03:16.:03:17.

That's according to a survey of 600 of them.

:03:18.:03:22.

It's one of many indicators of how the economy is responding

:03:23.:03:24.

to the vote for Britain to leave the European Union.

:03:25.:03:28.

Here's our business and economy editor, Douglas Fraser.

:03:29.:03:31.

Scotland's economy isn't too healthy at the moment.

:03:32.:03:35.

Growth has been weak or stalled for about a year -

:03:36.:03:38.

That's partly due to a deep downturn in the oil and gas industry.

:03:39.:03:43.

And today's business survey shows that the vote to leave

:03:44.:03:46.

Even though across the UK as a whole there was Brexit shock in July -

:03:47.:03:54.

on this measure, it bounced back in August.

:03:55.:03:56.

Here in Scotland the decline continued, particularly

:03:57.:03:58.

in the large services sector, from accountants to zoo-keepers.

:03:59.:04:01.

I visited one Scottish firm that's looking beyond Europe to survive.

Supergrass in Stirling uses recycled bottles to use -- to make insulation

man, a Russian with a big presence in building materials across Eastern

:04:33.:04:36.

Europe and Asia, bought the business for almost ?9 million. It is a

:04:37.:04:40.

company that manufactures high-quality products and has very

:04:41.:04:48.

good staff. The company has a good relation with clients. And I think

:04:49.:04:54.

together we can increase business. The company has already cut losses

:04:55.:04:58.

by targeting house builders rather than owners of older homes and with

this plant. That will mean significant multi-million pound

:05:17.:05:20.

investment in the factory. That is encouraging for us, an investment in

:05:21.:05:24.

infrastructure, I believe it will be a good chance for personal

of the Scottish economy later this week - with official figures

on the cost of living and jobs. As we've been hearing the former

:06:16.:06:25.

Prime Minister, David Cameron, has announced he's resigning

:06:26.:06:28.

as an MP. But how will he be

:06:29.:06:32.

remembered in Scotland. Our political correspondent,

:06:33.:06:34.

David Porter is at It was an eventful premiership as

:06:35.:06:47.

far as Scotland is concerned. It certainly was and in his 11 years as

:06:48.:06:51.

Tory leader and later Prime Minister, I doubt whether he managed

:06:52.:07:08.

to get bored too many times. He was in power are first in the coalition

:07:09.:07:11.

and then as outright winner in the election last year. For people in

:07:12.:07:17.

Scotland his career will be defined by agreeing to winning the Scottish

:07:18.:07:23.

independence referendum in 2014 and of course this year the EU

:07:24.:07:28.

referendum which he lost. As far as the Scottish referendum was

:07:29.:07:31.

concerned, he put himself at the centre of the Better Together

:07:32.:07:35.

campaign and he succeeded in keeping Scotland as part of the UK. He was

:07:36.:07:40.

hoping to repeat that trick a little earlier this year with regards to

:07:41.:07:45.

the EU referendum. But of course he lost and everything that followed

:07:46.:07:47.

from that over the summer, later today in him deciding to stand down

:07:48.:07:54.

as MP. As far as politicians at Westminster concerned, the SNP have

:07:55.:08:00.

refused to give any public comment tonight but the Scottish

:08:01.:08:03.

Conservative leader Bruce Davidson, who is in London, has said that she

:08:04.:08:08.

was sorry that he was standing down and that he was a man who had

:08:09.:08:10.

transformed the UK and his party. Rangers say their supporters

:08:11.:08:15.

were "subjected to a sickening and shameful display of outright

:08:16.:08:17.

sectarian hatred" during Saturday's A supporters group wants the club

:08:18.:08:20.

to ban Celtic fans Saturday's game has

:08:21.:08:25.

thrown up several issues. Rangers - as you say -

:08:26.:08:35.

have released a statement following demands from a supporters

:08:36.:08:39.

group that they ban Celtic The club say, "Directors are fully

:08:40.:08:41.

aware of the disgust felt by Rangers supporters

:08:42.:08:46.

who were subjected to a sickening and shameful display of outright

:08:47.:08:48.

sectarian hatred towards them." This relates to a banner held up

:08:49.:08:52.

by Celtic supporters Pictures have also been published

:08:53.:08:57.

in newspapers and online of effegies of Rangers supporters being hanged

:08:58.:09:03.

with their arms behind their back. Celtic say they won't become

:09:04.:09:07.

involved in a tit for tat spat but would deal with any issues

with that internally and Police Scotland added today:

:09:21.:09:26.

"The overwhelming majority of those who attended the Celtic v Rangers

:09:27.:09:28.

game behaved responsibly. What is hugely disappointing

:09:29.:09:30.

and frustrating is that a minority of individuals behaved

:09:31.:09:34.

in a manner which has no place in our communities,

football and modern society The Scottish Professional Football

:09:37.:09:42.

League say they'll study carefully their match delegate's

:09:43.:09:44.

report from the match. Faith leaders and charities

:09:45.:09:50.

are calling on the Home Office to be more generous to families split

:09:51.:09:53.

whilst fleeing war in Syria. The Scottish Government has also

:09:54.:09:56.

said it wants obstacles to be removed to allow families to be

:09:57.:09:59.

allowed to join those granted My name is Emma. I'm nine years old.

:10:00.:10:24.

My name Muhammad. Tentative first words in English for this family.

:10:25.:10:28.

The mother and children have been cast as refugees. And this is why.

TRANSLATION: Aeroplanes were bombing and we were in the underground

:10:36.:10:39.

shelter was a lot of dust, the planes were bombing and people were

dying. Now far from the bombing and reunited in Glasgow. The only thing

:10:45.:10:50.

he is, the mother and children can stay here, the father cannot.

:10:51.:10:57.

TRANSLATION: I almost died to be with them, to have them with me. I

to avoid being deported. TRANSLATION: The government do not

:11:07.:11:11.

believe they're my family, I'm prepared to take a DNA test or

:11:12.:11:15.

anything they ask for. TRANSLATION: My children need him, I have two

:11:16.:11:21.

disabled children, I do not understand the system. TRANSLATION:

:11:22.:11:25.

I call for help from the government so I can work and support my family.

:11:26.:11:28.

200 faith leaders from around the country are making the call for help

:11:29.:11:32.

saying that the UK can do more and quickly. There is a simple practical

:11:33.:11:37.

steps the government can take, it can relax some regulations about

:11:38.:11:41.

admitting refugees with family in this country, who guaranteed they

:11:42.:11:45.

have a network when they arrived and that is achievable within the

:11:46.:11:49.

foreseeable time frame. The Scottish Government is also taking a stance.

:11:50.:11:54.

We have got to be in the business of keeping families together, some are

:11:55.:11:59.

calling on the UK Government to revisit and revise the guidelines of

response, the Home Office said, the UK has a proud history of granting

:12:06.:12:10.

asylum to those who genuinely need it. And every case is carefully

:12:11.:12:15.

considered on its individual merits. This is what this family fled at

:12:16.:12:24.

home in Syria. Five years ago this was the city that sparked the Syrian

:12:25.:12:30.

uprising. Today a truce begins. When the war began, school stopped. Now

:12:31.:12:37.

they're learning to read and write but in a different language. And in

:12:38.:12:41.

the fear that they may lose their father once again. A reminder of the

:12:42.:12:55.

top stories. A convicted killer has denied stabbing Indian waiter Surjit

:12:56.:13:02.

Singh Chhokar almost 18 years ago. And still to come, Celtic had to

:13:03.:13:06.

Spain ahead of the opening Champions League clash tomorrow with

:13:07.:13:07.

Barcelona. The BBC has been told that other

:13:08.:13:23.

countries are better prepared to do the work of dismantling oil

:13:24.:13:28.

platforms. A major contract went to Norway last year. Drilling rigs

:13:29.:13:40.

moored in Dundee bring welcome work but this sport has its eye on a

:13:41.:13:45.

bigger prize. Dundee harbour is busy at the moment with three rigs here

:13:46.:13:48.

for maintenance. But there is plenty of room for decommissioning work.

:13:49.:13:53.

Forth ports are investing in the quayside and more land is available

:13:54.:13:56.

at the back with a giant installations could be brought in to

:13:57.:14:02.

be broken up. Installations like these, a towering steel platform

:14:03.:14:05.

from the North Sea, now approaching the end of their lives. Dundee

:14:06.:14:09.

missed out on the oil boom, maybe now it's time has come. The people

:14:10.:14:14.

of Dundee have been ready and waiting for this for a number of

:14:15.:14:18.

years and there is a general feeling that we're on the cusp of something

:14:19.:14:23.

big. And his boss agrees. I think when we have the infrastructure

:14:24.:14:27.

ready, that will be by the end of next year, then we see Dundee is the

:14:28.:14:33.

ideal hub for decommissioning and we are well placed to take advantage of

:14:34.:14:36.

a market that is only just beginning. Not everyone is so

:14:37.:14:40.

optimistic. There was dismay last month when a major contract to

:14:41.:14:44.

dismantle the North Sea platform went to Norway. We definitely have

:14:45.:14:48.

the skill set within the Dundee area and also the people who have been

:14:49.:14:53.

involved in the downturn of offshore, that we can bring that

:14:54.:14:58.

work here. And confident of being able to do it. Millions were spent

:14:59.:15:00.

building the North Sea steel giants, able to do it. Millions were spent

:15:01.:15:05.

millions more will be spent on removing them. Between now and 2024,

:15:06.:15:11.

79 platforms are to be decommissioned. Work valued at

:15:12.:15:15.

around ?15 billion. Potentially a jobs bonanza. To have Dundee and

:15:16.:15:22.

other Scottish boards when the work, has it been left too late? I think

:15:23.:15:27.

other competitors have developed their supply chain and are ahead of

:15:28.:15:32.

us. That means we can easily catch up, we have the embryonic supply

:15:33.:15:36.

chain in Dundee and other ports in Scotland but we need to develop it

:15:37.:15:38.

chain in Dundee and other ports in further. And that is the challenge

:15:39.:15:43.

for Scotland, to win the decommissioning race, and it could

:15:44.:15:53.

bring a new oil boom. A five-year-old boy has died after

:15:54.:15:56.

being struck by a van in Glasgow this afternoon. He was taken to the

:15:57.:16:01.

Queen Elizabeth University Hospital but died a short time later. The

:16:02.:16:06.

humanist Society of Scotland is seeking a judicial review of the

:16:07.:16:09.

refusal by Scottish ministers to give older school pupils the right

:16:10.:16:13.

to opt out of religious observance. The society says a growing number of

:16:14.:16:17.

young people do not identify with any religion. In England and Wales,

:16:18.:16:24.

those aged 16, to 18, have a right to choose for themselves.

:16:25.:16:26.

Now look at other stories from across the country. A gun owners are

:16:27.:16:32.

being urged to apply for a firearms certificate within the next 50 days

:16:33.:16:36.

to ensure they comply with a new law coming into effect at the end of the

:16:37.:16:39.

year which requires them to have a permit. The form is simple and

:16:40.:16:46.

straightforward. The only other thing you need is somebody to sign

:16:47.:16:50.

that you are of good character and they have known you for at least two

:16:51.:16:58.

years. That then will needs to be returned no later than October 21.

:16:59.:17:05.

Motorists using the MA in to, and 73 and am 74 on the outskirts of

:17:06.:17:09.

Glasgow are being warned to expect significant disruption of next three

:17:10.:17:19.

months. -- M73 and M74. Sections of routes are being reduced to three

:17:20.:17:23.

lanes. The design team behind the Olympic Park in London has been

:17:24.:17:27.

given the task of drawing up plans to regenerate a historic Aberdeen

:17:28.:17:31.

city centre park. The company has been chosen to bring new life into

:17:32.:17:36.

union Terrace Gardens. Four years ago, councillors rejected plans for

:17:37.:17:40.

a ?140 million transformation of the gardens. Sir Ian Wood had offered

:17:41.:17:47.

?50 million towards the cost. Edinburgh airport had an almost 12%

:17:48.:17:51.

increase in passenger numbers this August, compared with the same time

:17:52.:17:56.

last year. The rise was in part due to the popularity of the Edinburgh

:17:57.:18:01.

Festivals. Photos have been discovered of the construction of a

:18:02.:18:04.

major sewer system in Aberdeen in 1901. The scheme was designed to

:18:05.:18:10.

address the sanitary requirements of the growing city. A series of photos

:18:11.:18:14.

were discovered by a Scottish water employee. A giant spider common in

:18:15.:18:20.

Australia, Africa and Asia has been found inside a shipping container in

:18:21.:18:24.

Dumbarton. The Huntsman spider was spotted by staff at a manufacturing

:18:25.:18:30.

firm on Friday. They called in the Scottish SPCA amid concern that it

:18:31.:18:36.

was poisonous. The spider specialist identified the spider, which can

:18:37.:18:39.

give a painful bite. The Huntsman is being cared for while a suitable

:18:40.:18:40.

home is sought. The first turbine which will form

:18:41.:18:43.

part of the world's largest tidal energy scheme has been unveiled

:18:44.:18:46.

in the Highlands. The structure is to be installed

:18:47.:18:48.

in the Pentland Firth as part of a project which could

:18:49.:18:51.

eventually provide enough This is the first of more than 260

:18:52.:19:03.

undersea turbine is set to be sited in the waters between Orkney and the

:19:04.:19:08.

Caithness coast. The tidal scheme has been almost a decade in the

:19:09.:19:11.

planning but those backing the product say that Scotland is now on

:19:12.:19:16.

the brink of taking a global leader in tidal energy generation. What

:19:17.:19:19.

we're seeing is the application of technology, renewable energy

:19:20.:19:25.

potential on a massive scale, and also the ability to see these

:19:26.:19:28.

turbines manufactured here. That delivers economic impact and jobs

:19:29.:19:31.

potential that is really significant. A newly emerging

:19:32.:19:36.

industry, and one in which Scotland is already at the epicentre. This is

:19:37.:19:41.

a significant day, not just because this is the launch of the first

:19:42.:19:44.

tidal turbine that will be placed in the Pentland first, but because the

:19:45.:19:50.

backers of the MeyGen project say it is the birth of a new industry here

:19:51.:19:55.

in Scotland. -- Pentland Firth. This is about reproducing jobs recently

:19:56.:20:00.

lost in oil and gas. We are trying to invest up to half ?1 billion in

:20:01.:20:05.

projects, and for us and that will translate into thousands of jobs.

:20:06.:20:10.

The waters around Scotland contain a massive potential for marine power

:20:11.:20:14.

but so far harnessing that has been painfully slow and problematic. With

:20:15.:20:18.

this turbine now ready to go and to be joined by many more, the industry

:20:19.:20:22.

and its political supporters believe that the corner is now well and

:20:23.:20:23.

truly been turned. The Celtic players are in Barcelona

:20:24.:20:29.

where they'll begin their European Champions League

:20:30.:20:31.

campaign tomorrow evening. It's been three years

:20:32.:20:33.

since the Scottish league leaders have played at this group stage

:20:34.:20:35.

of the competition. Chris McLaughlin reports

:20:36.:20:37.

from Barcelona's Nou Camp stadium. Good evening from one of the most

:20:38.:20:46.

iconic stadiums in world football. Celtic are back in the Champions

:20:47.:20:51.

League. It does not get much bigger, it does not get much tougher. As you

:20:52.:20:56.

can see, the squad are training behind me here at the Camp Nou at

:20:57.:21:01.

the moment. It is a squad full of confidence. But without Leigh

:21:02.:21:04.

Griffiths. Scott Brown is also a doubt although we understand he

:21:05.:21:09.

should be OK to play. But remember Celtic go into this on the back of a

:21:10.:21:12.

5-1 victory over Rangers at the weekend. This was Moussa Dembele's

the world. I do not think there is any question about that. Luis Soares

is one of the most beautiful man you could come across, very humble. He

works tirelessly at his profession. He is super professional. A family

man, who gives everything for his life as a footballer and for his

family. So the perfect build-up for Celtic ahead of that women -- after

buildings on the map. The biggest cake festival ever staged as part of

the year-long festival of architecture and design. It is 50%

baking and 50% architecture because it is about, people only build of

these buildings because they love them or care about them. Maybe it is

somewhere they went as children on holiday, and they have a connection

hours in the limelight, which was just as well since a few roofs

:24:15.:24:18.

started to melt and whether bakers or architects, the importance of

:24:19.:24:22.

good foundations became all too apparent. Being part of the

the weather but I think it has been really nice in the East.

:24:56.:25:01.

Thank you very much, it has been very warm in Scotland. And humid as

:25:02.:25:06.

well. In particular, if we take a look at what is happening, we can

:25:07.:25:09.

see we have this weather front waxing and waning, from the east to

the west. But we have outbreaks of rain with heavier pulses through the

:25:14.:25:21.

course of this evening. In the east, it is dry, with not much brightness.

humid, 17 or 18. Fresher towards the Western Isles. If you like a cooler,

that is where to be. The wind will be light, dry in the East. That rain

weather front for the north-west, pushing the rain away. Also

introducing a lot of cloud across eastern Scotland. It will not be

quite as warm. Cloudy initially in the East, with the cloud breaking
