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

:00:00.:00:00.

Nurse Pauline Cafferkey, who survived ebola, is cleared

:00:00.:00:10.

of all charges of misconduct over claims she'd hidden

:00:11.:00:13.

She is delighted the panel has made a decision that she has no case to

:00:14.:00:29.

answer. Also on the programme,

:00:30.:00:30.

The First Minister says Scottish interests must be embedded

:00:31.:00:32.

in the plans to negotiate Brexit. The unemployment rate in Scotland

:00:33.:00:35.

has fallen below the UK level. The Scots sniper fighting

:00:36.:00:45.

with the Kurds on the front And Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers

:00:46.:00:47.

says he's not embarrassed by the club's 7-0

:00:48.:00:52.

defeat to Barcelona. The nurse, Pauline Cafferkey,

:00:53.:01:07.

who contracted ebola while working in Sierra Leone, has been cleared

:01:08.:01:12.

of misconduct over her return It had been claimed she allowed

:01:13.:01:15.

an incorrect temperature to be recorded during the screening

:01:16.:01:22.

process at Heathrow airport. But today a disciplinary panel

:01:23.:01:27.

of the nursing and midwifery council in Edinburgh dismissed the charges

:01:28.:01:30.

after hearing she'd been Public Health England, who raised

:01:31.:01:40.

the complaint, have said they support the judgment.

:01:41.:01:42.

Pauline Cafferkey looked visibly relieved as the disciplinary panel

:01:43.:01:51.

cleared her of all charges. Her lawyer spoke of the effect the

:01:52.:01:55.

prolonged investigation has had on her health. She would never have

:01:56.:02:00.

knowingly put anyone in danger. Pauline was lucky to survive. Since

:02:01.:02:04.

her return from Sierra Leone she has continued to suffer from ill-health.

:02:05.:02:10.

The NMC disciplinary process has been upsetting and stressful for

:02:11.:02:14.

Pauline, however, she was delighted the panel made the case she has no

:02:15.:02:19.

case to answer. It has been almost two years since Pauline Cafferkey

:02:20.:02:24.

left for Sierra Leone, working on the front line of the fight against

:02:25.:02:28.

Ebola. One former patient recalls how she saved his life. She was a

:02:29.:02:34.

kind lady. She gave advice and we listened to her and her colleagues.

:02:35.:02:40.

And because of that we survived. Pauline Cafferkey was exhausted when

:02:41.:02:45.

she arrived at Heathrow. The screening area managed by Public

:02:46.:02:48.

Health England was chaotic and understaffed. What happened here is

:02:49.:02:52.

key to this case. The panel here heard that in the chaos at Heathrow

:02:53.:02:58.

that night some members of Pauline Cafferkey's team decided to take

:02:59.:03:02.

their own temperatures. Although hers was high, she allowed somebody

:03:03.:03:06.

in her group to record it as normal so they could pass through

:03:07.:03:10.

screening. She heard that person say, let's get out of here. Ms

:03:11.:03:15.

Cafferkey did then disclose her high temperature to start. Even then the

:03:16.:03:20.

stakes were made. Hours later she was critically ill. The misconduct

:03:21.:03:24.

committee ruled it would have been inconceivable a nurse of their

:03:25.:03:27.

experience would have left the area without mentioning her temperature

:03:28.:03:32.

so why was she put through this ordeal? I think what's clear today,

:03:33.:03:40.

I have not apologised, in answer to your question, what's clear today is

:03:41.:03:45.

very much what the panel said. Our overriding duty is to protect the

:03:46.:03:48.

public and maintain confidence in the profession. There was support

:03:49.:03:54.

for her at the practice where she hopes to return. She devoted herself

:03:55.:03:59.

to do the fairly selfless work. It just seemed just. Fairly happy, yes.

:04:00.:04:07.

It's high time she was back, yeah. Pauline Cafferkey wanted only to

:04:08.:04:12.

help others. She risked her own life for that. She will hope today's

:04:13.:04:16.

outcome will be the final hurdle in her long road to recovery.

:04:17.:04:20.

The First Minister says Scottish interests must be embedded in plans

:04:21.:04:23.

to negotiate Britain's departure from the European union.

:04:24.:04:25.

Nicola Sturgeons was giving evidence to Holyrood's European Committee.

:04:26.:04:27.

This from our political editor Brian Taylor.

:04:28.:04:36.

Three parliaments today. In Strasbourg, Westminster and

:04:37.:04:44.

Holyrood. One topic, Brexit. In Strasbourg, Jean-Claude Juncker

:04:45.:04:49.

urged European integration including a new military headquarters. He

:04:50.:04:53.

warned the departing UK could not expect to stay in the single trade

:04:54.:04:56.

market without also allowing free movement of labour. TRANSLATION:

:04:57.:05:04.

Only those can have unlimited access to the single market that accent

:05:05.:05:11.

there will be free access for labour and goods. There can be no a la

:05:12.:05:16.

carte access to the single market. But what's on the Westminster menu,

:05:17.:05:23.

a la carte or otherwise? The SNP's Angus Roberts and urged the Prime

:05:24.:05:27.

Minister to specify her name is post-Brexit. Again she sidestepped.

:05:28.:05:32.

Is the Prime Minister in favour of protecting Visa free travel, yes or

:05:33.:05:38.

no? There was a very clear message from the British people at the time

:05:39.:05:44.

of the referendum vote on June 23, that they wanted to see an end to

:05:45.:05:49.

free movement as it operated. They want to see control of movement of

:05:50.:05:54.

people from the European Union into the UK and that's what we will

:05:55.:06:00.

deliver. At Holyrood, the First Minister faced questions. She

:06:01.:06:02.

reminded them and voters that Brexit hadn't happened yet and in her view

:06:03.:06:08.

by far the West was yet to come -- the worst was yet to come. Nobody is

:06:09.:06:13.

doing anybody any favours by suggesting we are through the worst,

:06:14.:06:16.

we have not even started this process yet. The potential of a lost

:06:17.:06:22.

decade for the UK should make us sit up and take notice and in Scotland

:06:23.:06:26.

it should make us think very carefully about whether there are

:06:27.:06:28.

better alternatives than accepting we just have to be part of that. She

:06:29.:06:34.

castigated the UK Government for failing to clarify the consequences

:06:35.:06:38.

of Brexit three months on from the referendum. She said it was:

:06:39.:06:44.

gobsmacking, to use non-Parliamentary language. Later

:06:45.:06:52.

the Scotland Brexit minister urged all MSP is to back full membership

:06:53.:06:57.

of the single market. The Tories stressed any Scottish aspirations

:06:58.:06:59.

must be agreed with the UK Government. And a Brexit meeting in

:07:00.:07:05.

London tomorrow? Yes, we are expecting Mike Russell to meet David

:07:06.:07:10.

Davis who is the UK minister responsible for enabling or

:07:11.:07:14.

facilitating Brexit. And one thing I think they will be discussing, the

:07:15.:07:18.

process, the terms of engagement between the UK and the Scottish

:07:19.:07:22.

Government. One thing Mike Russell will be keen to remind Mr Davies of

:07:23.:07:26.

is that in key European areas like fisheries and farming, that these

:07:27.:07:32.

are devolved responsibilities. Mike Russell calls it distributed

:07:33.:07:37.

democracy. Trying to stress the place of the Scottish Government

:07:38.:07:42.

within these talks. And sure that it will become central tomorrow, I'm

:07:43.:07:45.

sure it will be polite. Ultimately there could be tension down the road

:07:46.:07:50.

because I think that UK ministers with regard to Scotland are keen to

:07:51.:07:54.

consult, I'm not sure they will be so eager to embed. Thank you.

:07:55.:07:58.

The unemployment rate in Scotland has fallen below the UK level

:07:59.:08:01.

and the number of people seeking work between May and July was

:08:02.:08:04.

Meanwhile the number in work was also up.

:08:05.:08:07.

Not much sign of a Brexit meltdown there.

:08:08.:08:09.

Our business and economy editor, Douglas Fraser, is here with more.

:08:10.:08:13.

There's been lots of business gloom about the economic impact

:08:14.:08:21.

of that referendum result, but it's not backed up by these figures.

:08:22.:08:25.

The number of Scots seeking work down 29,000 to 130,000.

:08:26.:08:32.

That takes the unemployment rate to 4.7%, a low rate,

:08:33.:08:35.

and it's below the 4.9% rate in early summer

:08:36.:08:37.

The number of Scots in work: up by 51,000, a record

:08:38.:08:46.

There may have been a data quirk earlier this year,

:08:47.:08:55.

when survey numbers were much weaker.

:08:56.:08:57.

But underlying this is a shift to more self-employment -

:08:58.:09:02.

that's been almost all the jobs growth in Scotland over

:09:03.:09:04.

And while the number of those in work has

:09:05.:09:07.

risen over the past year, the number who are so-called

:09:08.:09:10.

'economically inactive' - choosing not to work,

:09:11.:09:12.

for various reasons - has risen by much the same

:09:13.:09:17.

Often it's down to lifestyle choices. Lots of households these

:09:18.:09:29.

days have more than one earner. So people can flex the number of people

:09:30.:09:35.

with jobs in their household as circumstances can change. It may be

:09:36.:09:40.

the type of work they are looking for simply isn't available at the

:09:41.:09:41.

moment. Does this tell us anything

:09:42.:09:43.

about the economic impact of But that's what's on the mind

:09:44.:09:46.

of politicians concerned about future job numbers -

:09:47.:09:52.

one of them today visiting Standard Life, a big

:09:53.:09:56.

Edinburgh employer. We see from different places,

:09:57.:10:04.

pension funds and others, concerns about future investment levels,

:10:05.:10:09.

concerns over confidence. As these figures demonstrate we have been

:10:10.:10:13.

building up to, I think, are very resilient economy in terms of

:10:14.:10:17.

employment, but those things do represent danger. It's up to us to

:10:18.:10:23.

make sure we mitigate any effect of Brexit. No question we'd be in a far

:10:24.:10:29.

better position if we did not have the uncertainty that Brexit

:10:30.:10:30.

represents. Part of the weakness in the jobs

:10:31.:10:31.

market has been the downturn More evidence of that today,

:10:32.:10:34.

with official figures showing a rise last year in output from under

:10:35.:10:38.

Scotland's seabed: up 21% to 70 million tonnes,

:10:39.:10:40.

ending a long run of decline, That's due to lots of investment,

:10:41.:10:43.

peaking two years ago. But that's when the price plummeted,

:10:44.:10:50.

so the value of that oil and gas Also news from the

:10:51.:10:54.

shopkeepers today, with retail sales down more than 2

:10:55.:10:57.

per cent last month. They can't blame the weather,

:10:58.:11:02.

but non-food shop sales down by more, clothing

:11:03.:11:06.

and shoes in particular. Analysts wondering if shopping

:11:07.:11:11.

habits have changed for keeps, or if the summer fashion collections

:11:12.:11:13.

were just a bit uninspired. A former Scottish soldier fighting

:11:14.:11:22.

the so-called Islamic State in Northern Iraq has told the BBC

:11:23.:11:25.

he wishes he'd gone there sooner. Alan Duncan left Scotland to fight

:11:26.:11:28.

alongside the Peshmerga in He doesn't want it known exactly

:11:29.:11:30.

where in Scotland he's from because of fears

:11:31.:11:36.

for his family's safety. On the front line against so-called

:11:37.:11:48.

Islamic State. These are Kurdish soldiers trying to drive back IS.

:11:49.:11:55.

But among them, a Scot. Sniper Alan Duncan. I was fed up of watching the

:11:56.:12:00.

world doing nothing, and I can help in a very small way. I'm nothing

:12:01.:12:07.

here. The peshmerga are the ones. This is what IS has left behind as

:12:08.:12:11.

they flee and advancing Iraqi army, burning oil wells. Shattered lives.

:12:12.:12:18.

Children haunted by horrors they witnessed. These were enough to join

:12:19.:12:27.

a war in a foreign land for one foreign soldier. The next step would

:12:28.:12:33.

be nothing to what we would see, so this is the West's fight. The

:12:34.:12:37.

peshmerga don't just fight for themselves. This area here is

:12:38.:12:43.

Christian villages. These people are fighting and dying to take these

:12:44.:12:47.

Christian villages. These people are villages back. They want people to

:12:48.:12:50.

move back safely into their homes, no matter what your faith. They

:12:51.:12:55.

don't care about faith. It is about humanity, this is humanity's fight.

:12:56.:13:00.

And what of those he's fighting? Nothing, these people are nothing.

:13:01.:13:08.

It is training, but also knowing what Daesh is, what they represent,

:13:09.:13:12.

what they do. UK authorities have urged people not to join the

:13:13.:13:17.

conflicts in Iraq and Syria. Alan Duncan, though, has only one regret.

:13:18.:13:20.

That I didn't come sooner. You're watching BBC

:13:21.:13:24.

Reporting Scotland. Nurse Pauline Cafferkey,

:13:25.:13:27.

who survived ebola, is cleared of all charges of misconduct

over claims she'd hidden She feared she wouldn't make it to

Rio, but Scottish sprinter Libby Clegg is now the double Olympic

:13:48.:13:48.

champion. Andy Murray says he's delighted

:13:49.:13:51.

he describes as the best The Olympic and Wimbledon champion,

alongside big brother Jamie, are the backbone of

:13:56.:14:02.

the British Davis Cup team. He's always in demand on trips back

:14:03.:14:19.

home. Now more than ever. Practice pays off. He's one win then and

:14:20.:14:24.

Olympic gold in what he describes as the best year of his career. Now

:14:25.:14:28.

it's time to give back. Obviously unhappy to back. Obviously a lot of

:14:29.:14:36.

good memories from this place -- obviously I'm happy to be back. Good

:14:37.:14:39.

times here, big wins, amazing atmosphere. Probably the best

:14:40.:14:45.

atmosphere you could play in the ever. Andy Murray is back in

:14:46.:14:48.

Scotland after a terrific year not just for him but for big brother

:14:49.:14:55.

Jamie, too. The Murray family trophy cabinet now boasts six grand slam

:14:56.:15:00.

titles between them, two Olympic gold medals, and of course a Davis

:15:01.:15:05.

Cup. I wanted to try to do as best I can in my career and make sure that

:15:06.:15:09.

when I finish I could look back with no regrets. To come from a small

:15:10.:15:17.

town, don blame, to be able to come through there is just brilliant, and

:15:18.:15:20.

brilliant for the sport because it shows it can happen. It takes a lot

:15:21.:15:25.

of work and dedication but it can happen. His success is inspiring

:15:26.:15:30.

others. We all look up to him, a role model. He's really inspiring

:15:31.:15:36.

for us because we see how hard it is to achieve what he has achieved. We

:15:37.:15:40.

want to be like him when we are older, to get to that level.

:15:41.:15:44.

Annoyingly his skills are not confined to the tennis court. This

:15:45.:15:48.

is Andy Murray scoring and five-a-side the other day. Playing

Documents have been found that belonged to a Church of Scotland

missionary who died at the Auschwitz concentration camp, have been found.

:16:38.:16:40.

Jane Haining is the only Scot to be officially honoured

:16:41.:16:42.

for giving her life to help Jews in the Holocaust.

:16:43.:16:45.

This was very exciting to open up the box and find this envelope with

:16:46.:16:50.

Jane Haining's last will and testament too.

:16:51.:16:52.

Her handwritten will meticulously lists what is to happen

A transport group has warned that congestion in Glasgow is behind

an increase in bus journey times and an alarming drop

:19:15.:19:16.

Greener Journeys concluded that bus speeds in Glasgow were falling

:19:17.:19:21.

faster than anywhere else in the UK, and services could be threatened

A site on the shores of Loch Lomond could be turned into a

leisure resort, after Flamingo Land Limited

:19:36.:19:37.

was appointed the preferred developer.

:19:38.:19:38.

Plans for the 20 hectare site at West Riverside in Balloch -

which is within the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park -

An independent inquiry has backed plans for parking permits in areas

:19:48.:19:54.

around the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital.

:19:55.:19:56.

Glasgow City Council proposed annual parking permits in a bid

:19:57.:19:58.

Despite objections, an inquiry backed the principle,

:19:59.:20:06.

setting the charges at ?15 for residents and ?210

:20:07.:20:09.

for businesses - less than a third of the cost originally proposed.

:20:10.:20:16.

70 individually designed sculptures of "Oor Wullie" have

:20:17.:20:19.

fetched almost ?900,000 at a charity auction.

So where does it leave the Scottish champions?

Today's newspapers reflecting on Celtic's misery, but also looking

back at a Barcelona masterclass. It was a sobering night Scottish

football. The country's best completely outplayed and ultimately

:21:14.:21:17.

taught a footballing lesson. Celtic wanted it to be over long before the

seventh went in. It was a long, long night in the Nou Camp. For our

:21:23.:21:27.

players, this is a competition that is going to be a brilliant learning

:21:28.:21:30.

season for us in the Champions League. Tonight is one of those

linked up with Neymar for the second. But it was after the break

that most of the damage was done. Cut the goalkeeper have done

defeats. 7-0 is difficult. There is no question there will be talking

:22:36.:22:39.

about it today. The best thing is to get back out on the training pitch,

:22:45.:22:50.

worst ever European result. The man who helped to inflict the damage

laying bare ankles in quality that should come for no surprise. But for

Celtic and Scottish football it stings nonetheless.

The decision to hold the next Old Firm match on Hogmanay has been

:22:59.:23:01.

The Scottish Police Federation have called the decision "insanity",

:23:02.:23:07.

and MSP Brian Whittle, the Scottish Conservatives'

:23:08.:23:11.

sport spokesman, described it as "baffling".

:23:12.:23:13.

Police Scotland have defended the decision saying it was reached

:23:14.:23:16.

after discussions between police, football authorities

:23:17.:23:19.

and the broadcasters, believing to be the best option

:23:20.:23:21.

to minimise the wider community impact.

Double Paralympic champion Libby Clegg admits she never imagined

:23:25.:23:28.

she'd make the Rio Games, let alone win two gold medals.

:23:29.:23:33.

The Scottish sprinter completed a memorable double after she won

the 200 metres, four days after taking the 100 metres title.

missing out and selection. Throw into the makes a change of coach and

resulted in reclassification. But she dealt with all of that and how.

Libby Clegg sprinting towards the line takes the gold for Great

Britain! I'm a bit shell-shocked. I could never have imagined this. I

:24:35.:24:41.

wasn't sure if I would make an on the team. To be here is absolutely,

It grew out of the London Paralympics, but now a festival

celebrating the work of disabled artists is to make

:25:25.:25:27.

The Unlimited Festival showcases art, music and dance,

:25:28.:25:35.

with many of the best known performers working

:25:36.:25:37.

Our arts correspondent Pauline McLean reports.

:25:38.:25:41.

Clare Cunningham started out as a singer, but she is now better

:25:42.:25:44.

She isn't limited by her use of crutches

:25:45.:25:51.

and most of her work they are centre stage.

:25:52.:25:57.

It is a duet and also in collaboration with a philosopher.

:25:58.:26:00.

Looking at the subject of perception, one of

:26:01.:26:03.

And yeah, it's looking at the idea of how we

:26:04.:26:10.

perceive the world around us and how we are perceived within the world.

:26:11.:26:15.

Raise your hands above your head, please.

:26:16.:26:20.

It is one of a number of shows being staged as part of the Unlimited

:26:21.:26:24.

Festival. Originally created alongside

:26:25.:26:25.

the London Paralympics, a chance

:26:26.:26:27.

to celebrate artistic achievements as well

:26:28.:26:29.

as sporting ones. Scottish artists have

:26:30.:26:33.

had a big showing. They went to London,

:26:34.:26:37.

showed the work, and so many of those artists have now toured

:26:38.:26:40.

the world with the work Work like a collaboration between

:26:41.:26:56.

Scotland and Brazil which grew out of the first festival and has now

:26:57.:26:57.

been premiered at this. At the moment it is important for it

:26:58.:27:12.

to be seen on the main stages. This is a great opportunity for artists

:27:13.:27:16.

to get their work seen online -- limescale venues.

:27:17.:27:19.

For audiences, it's a chance to see brand-new work

:27:20.:27:21.

For would-be performers, some inspiration to

:27:22.:27:23.

Pretty gloomy today. There was some sunshine today in the south-west,

:27:24.:27:45.

where we had warm sunshine. 21 degrees in Stranraer. Where we had

:27:46.:27:52.

the clout it was rather cool. Tonight is largely dry, cloudy once

:27:53.:27:57.

again. Quite mild. And also quite murky. Some wet weather across the

:27:58.:28:01.

Western Isles and the Northern Isles. That should clear away. A few

:28:02.:28:09.

showers towards Argyll. Mr and Mark around North Sea coast is extending

:28:10.:28:11.

its way inland overnight. It is going to be a mild night.

:28:12.:28:16.

Temperatures in the towns and cities in the mid teens. High teams in the

:28:17.:28:22.

south-west. To start the day tomorrow it is dry but cloudy.

:28:23.:28:26.

Fairly murky. Some outbreaks of rain around the west Coast and the

:28:27.:28:32.

Hebrides. For much of the mainland, after a cloudy start, the cloud

:28:33.:28:34.

should thin and break. Spells of sunshine. It will be pleasantly

:28:35.:28:43.

warm. Further north, Highland Perthshire into Speyside, around

:28:44.:28:51.

Inverness, 24, 20 five Celsius. It will be cooler. Still some rain for

:28:52.:28:59.

the Hebrides. Fairly misty and murky for Orkney and Shetland. Through the

:29:00.:29:02.

rest of the afternoon into the evening, the wet weather gets its

:29:03.:29:04.

rest of the afternoon into the act together. It shuttles its way

:29:05.:29:08.

further east as we head overnight towards Friday. It sounds fairly

:29:09.:29:12.

intense at times. At the same time we have got a number of heavy

:29:13.:29:15.

downpours pushing up from England. That means there is a recipe for a

:29:16.:29:22.

lively start to the day for eastern Scotland on Friday morning. That

:29:23.:29:27.

weather clearing away. Bright and breezy elsewhere. It is fresher.

:29:28.:29:32.

Those bright and breezy conditions still with us for the first half of

:29:33.:29:37.

the weekend. Saturday not too bad. Turning wet in the north-west later.

:29:38.:29:40.

Now, a reminder of tonight's main news.

:29:41.:29:42.

The nurse, Pauline Cafferkey, who contracted

:29:43.:29:43.

Ebola while working in Sierra Leone, has been cleared of misconduct

:29:44.:29:46.

over her return to the UK suffering from the virus.

:29:47.:29:48.

It had been claimed she allowed an incorrect temperature to be

:29:49.:29:51.

recorded during screening pat Heathrow airport.

:29:52.:29:54.

Until then, from everyone on the team,
