Health officials declare a national ecoli outbreak as more cases

:00:00.:00:10.

are confirmed with a Lanarkshire cheese said to be

:00:11.:00:12.

Politicians dress up to highlight the battle against cancer as access

:00:13.:00:18.

Scotland's Brexit minister meets his UK counterpart and says

:00:19.:00:26.

it's "inconceivable" he won't be involved in negotiations.

:00:27.:00:29.

Criminalising psychological abuse - a new law to tackle the controlling

:00:30.:00:35.

If you happen to be looking for a nice quiet game this is the one to

:00:36.:01:02.

Eighty years after that film was made, we look ahead to the final

:01:03.:01:07.

Scotland's food standards watchdog says it believes 19 people

:01:08.:01:26.

who became ill during a recent e-coli outbreak

:01:27.:01:30.

Officials said most of those were known to have

:01:31.:01:34.

Food Standards Scotland has ordered a blanket ban

:01:35.:01:41.

on all products from the makers, Errington Cheese.

:01:42.:01:43.

Our reporter Aileen Clarke is here with the latest.

:01:44.:01:50.

Tonight NHS Scotland has confirmed the number of cases

:01:51.:01:52.

And the team managing the investigation say 19 of those

:01:53.:02:00.

had eaten blue cheese and 15 of those people infected with E-Coli

:02:01.:02:03.

are known to have eaten the Dunsyre Blue product.

:02:04.:02:06.

What they will not tell us however is whether the three year old girl

:02:07.:02:10.

who died during this outbreak was one of those who had eaten blue

:02:11.:02:14.

We also know a small number of E-Coli cases in children

:02:15.:02:19.

are being investigated in the Angus area.

:02:20.:02:22.

Initial inquiries suggest these could be linked

:02:23.:02:24.

All six cheese made by Errington in Lanarkshire were ordered

:02:25.:02:34.

to be withdrawn from sale by Scotland's Food Standard's Agency.

:02:35.:02:36.

But there is criticism that move is over-cautious

:02:37.:02:46.

Well I am surprised all the cheese being produced by the company has

:02:47.:02:53.

been withdrawn, in a very sort of premise triway, the company wasn't

:02:54.:02:59.

given a chance to respond to the withdrawal notice as it were, and so

:03:00.:03:05.

the food standard Scotland is taking a very precautionary line.

:03:06.:03:10.

The team is defending its decision, saying they have taken a large

:03:11.:03:16.

number of samples and these have identified a number of different

:03:17.:03:21.

cheeses produced by Errington Choose containing organisms with the

:03:22.:03:27.

potential to cause serious illness, including the E-coli bug. As for the

:03:28.:03:35.

producers, they have stuck to their position, saying all their testing

:03:36.:03:39.

has found no trace of E-coli, and they say that has been confirmed to

:03:40.:03:45.

them, by various micro biological experts.

:03:46.:03:47.

A mother of two who had to crowd fund her treatment

:03:48.:03:51.

after being denied a new drug for breast cancer, is now to receive

:03:52.:03:54.

the medicine on the NHS - after she wrote to the First

:03:55.:03:57.

Tonight Anne Maclean-Chang said she was "delighted" -

:03:58.:04:01.

Nicola Sturgeon welcomed the Grampian health board U-turn -

:04:02.:04:06.

but warned that it was impossible to provide every patient

:04:07.:04:08.

with the medication they thought they required.

:04:09.:04:10.

This from our political editor Brian Taylor.

:04:11.:04:19.

Yes, it is the First Minister gashed in pin. Nicola Sturgeon joined

:04:20.:04:27.

fellow leaders to back the charity breast cancer Now, smiling together,

:04:28.:04:32.

to help combat pain and anguish. But earlier political conflict. Today

:04:33.:04:37.

Easdalely record highlights the ramty of cancer treatment under this

:04:38.:04:43.

Government. The paper told of a woman, a mother of two, denied a

:04:44.:04:46.

cancer drug which might prolong her life. The drug isn't routinely

:04:47.:04:52.

proprescribed and her appeal for individual treatment was rejected.

:04:53.:04:56.

Alerted to the case, the First Minister's office contacted Grampian

:04:57.:05:00.

health board yesterday. This morning following further discussions with

:05:01.:05:05.

her clinician, NHS Grampian has agreed to fund this drug, and I

:05:06.:05:09.

understand she has been informed of that this morning. Delight, probably

:05:10.:05:18.

a bit of surprise, after the fight I feel I have had, trying to get to

:05:19.:05:23.

this point, so quickly, there seemed to be a turn round. I believe they

:05:24.:05:31.

had over 100 women like me in Scotland with this disease and some

:05:32.:05:34.

of them may well benefit from the drug as well. Some conscious that

:05:35.:05:40.

although this personally is a great, you know decision for me, it doesn't

:05:41.:05:44.

help these other ladies that are out there, that are already diagnosed or

:05:45.:05:47.

about to be diagnosed. In a statement to the health board

:05:48.:05:51.

confirmed it was their call. It said:

:05:52.:06:02.

Wonderful news said Kezia Dugdale but what about others? Can she

:06:03.:06:10.

assure the chamber that cases like this will never happen again. No, I

:06:11.:06:16.

cannot and I will not give an assurance that no patient will ever

:06:17.:06:21.

again find they cannot access a drug they think in all sincerity they

:06:22.:06:25.

should, because in any system, that has to assess drugs, there will be

:06:26.:06:30.

be hard decisions that are difficult for all of us, where drugs are not

:06:31.:06:34.

accessible for a particular patient. There is a review under way into how

:06:35.:06:39.

patients can access new medicines in Scotland. At the core of that, is an

:06:40.:06:43.

attempt to persuade the drugs companies to charge lower price, to

:06:44.:06:48.

the NHS. But from the general, to the particular, tonight one mum is

:06:49.:06:52.

to receive treatment which she hopes will give her a longer time with her

:06:53.:07:00.

Scotland's Brexit Minister says it's "inconceivable" that the Scottish

:07:01.:07:05.

government won't be involved in negotiations on devolved issues,

:07:06.:07:09.

when talks take place on the UK leaving the European Union.

:07:10.:07:12.

Mike Russell has held his first meeting with his Westminster

:07:13.:07:14.

counterpart David Davis, in Downing Street.

:07:15.:07:18.

Mr Russell warned it would be inconceivable for ministers in

:07:19.:07:25.

London to negotiate devolved issues on Scotland's behalf.

:07:26.:07:27.

Our political correspondent Nick Eardley is at Westminster now.

:07:28.:07:30.

And Nick, this is the first time these two men have met

:07:31.:07:32.

That is right. I think today was about two things in particular.

:07:33.:07:39.

Firstly it was a chance for the Scottish Government to set out its

:07:40.:07:42.

key interest, the one we have heard a lot about in the last fortnight is

:07:43.:07:47.

membership of the European single market. The Scottish Government

:07:48.:07:50.

beliefs we need to stay in, the UK Government is yet to detail exactly

:07:51.:07:54.

what it thinks on the issue. Secondly it was a chance for the

:07:55.:07:58.

Scottish Government and the UK Government to discuss what role

:07:59.:08:04.

Scottish ministers should have in formulating the UK Government's

:08:05.:08:07.

Brexit strategy, and one area in particular that came up today is

:08:08.:08:11.

what role Scottish ministers play when it comes to discussing devolved

:08:12.:08:17.

issues. Massively embedded in how the whole of the UK is now, we

:08:18.:08:22.

believe in moving on from that, but it would be inconceivable that the

:08:23.:08:29.

areas were negotiated on by anybody else. They are the responsibility of

:08:30.:08:32.

the Scottish Government and Parliament and I think we have to

:08:33.:08:37.

make that clear. We are at a very early stage in the process, we have

:08:38.:08:44.

to understand how we take forward the respective interests of

:08:45.:08:47.

Scotland, indeed other pars of the United Kingdom and how the

:08:48.:08:50.

negotiations are going to be structured.

:08:51.:08:54.

He also told the BBC he is still open to Scotland having a slightly

:08:55.:08:58.

different relationship with Europe, than the rest of the UK, post

:08:59.:09:00.

Brexit. But that is not an idea that than the rest of the UK, post

:09:01.:09:06.

is shared by everybody at the UK cabinet table. I am told there will

:09:07.:09:11.

be more details of Scotland's role in the Brexit talks, in the next few

:09:12.:09:15.

weeks and there will be more of these talks between the Scottish and

:09:16.:09:19.

UK Governments as they try and formulate some common cause moving

:09:20.:09:23.

forward. I think it is unlikely all will be as positive as today.

:09:24.:09:29.

Plans to make emotional and psychological abuse a crime have

:09:30.:09:31.

The proposals will also see a separate offence of domestic abuse

:09:32.:09:35.

Victims groups welcomed the move - they say for too many years

:09:36.:09:39.

the focus has been entirely on physical violence,

:09:40.:09:41.

when the mental torture can often be worse.

:09:42.:09:43.

Cover yourself up. Nobody wants to look at you. Domestic abuse takes

:09:44.:10:05.

many forms. It can go on for year, gradually gnawing away at the

:10:06.:10:10.

victim's self of sense. Make me feel worthless. Abuse for five years this

:10:11.:10:14.

woman's former partner was eventually jailed. She is still

:10:15.:10:20.

suffering. Depressed. Isolated. Anxious. Always feeling you had to

:10:21.:10:25.

run thing past and ask for permission. And trying to separate

:10:26.:10:31.

me from my friends, who could see through him. There tends to be a lot

:10:32.:10:35.

of self blame because they have been told over and over and over that

:10:36.:10:38.

this is only happening because they are not doing things right, they are

:10:39.:10:44.

not behaving in a proper way, they are not cooking, cleaning properly,

:10:45.:10:51.

and so, you know, that sense of person is eroded. This abuse is

:10:52.:11:01.

designed to be tackled by the new legislation. It is the controlling

:11:02.:11:06.

nature and the psychological abuse, and we have in the existing law,

:11:07.:11:10.

provisions the deal with the physical aspect of it. What this new

:11:11.:11:16.

legislation will do is to help with the psychological consequence that

:11:17.:11:19.

go with domestic violence. Cases of physical domestic abuse are

:11:20.:11:22.

currently prosecuted under existing criminal laws like breach of the

:11:23.:11:26.

peace or assault. Experts say they don't give sufficient powers to

:11:27.:11:30.

bring abusers to justice. The new law that is coming into place in

:11:31.:11:33.

Scotland will allow officers to go incidents and look at the whole

:11:34.:11:37.

story of what is happening in that particular relationship. So it is

:11:38.:11:40.

not just about the physical assault, not just the sexual assault it is

:11:41.:11:45.

about the isolation the controlling behaviour, the put downs and

:11:46.:11:48.

together they can be panelled up and put to the problems ray for fiscal.

:11:49.:11:52.

We are offering victims protection, we are offering the police more

:11:53.:11:56.

teals in the war against domestic abuse. It is estimated a woman will

:11:57.:12:01.

be initially or emotionally abused 30 or 40 times before she reported

:12:02.:12:06.

it. MSPs voted unanimously to ensure the law will be on her side.

:12:07.:12:12.

The UK government Culture Secretary, Karen Bradley,

:12:13.:12:14.

has announced a new BBC Charter for the next 11 years.

:12:15.:12:16.

The Minister told MPs the BBC should represent ALL parts of the UK,

:12:17.:12:19.

but she added any FINAL decision on the Scottish Six

Health officials declare a national ecoli outbreak,

Trainspotting as you might not have seen it before.

:12:45.:12:55.

The MP for Midlothian, Owen Thomson, has called for the UK government

:12:56.:13:05.

to act urgently to allow a nine-year-old Syrian boy,

:13:06.:13:07.

Mohammed Karou, who was feared dead in the country's civil war,

:13:08.:13:10.

to be allowed to join his parents in Scotland.

:13:11.:13:12.

The boy's parents fled from north-east Syria earlier this year,

:13:13.:13:14.

But recently, having settled in Penicuik,

:13:15.:13:17.

they discovered he's still alive but trapped in Syria.

are confident of developing new drugs and ultimately a cure.

:13:52.:13:56.

Good morning. How you doing? Are you all right? Rosie is four, she has

:13:57.:14:13.

him phone what, a blood cancer, -- lymphoma. Her body couldn't fight a

:14:14.:14:19.

hidden and potentially lethal infection. Chemotherapy lowered her

:14:20.:14:25.

immune system and that is when she became ill, leading into January.

:14:26.:14:31.

Hence that is when the fungal infection started. The fungal

:14:32.:14:37.

infection made Rosie seriously ill, her parents faced huge uncertainty.

:14:38.:14:42.

One of the real difficulty is knowing whether a patient has a

:14:43.:14:45.

fungal infection or not. One of the things I am hoping for is that new

:14:46.:14:53.

tests to identify Feng gut Gus for say patient doesn't have fungus

:14:54.:14:56.

might come from the type of research we are hoping will be done locally

:14:57.:15:01.

in this new centre. Patients like this whose immune systems aren't

:15:02.:15:04.

working properly are especially at risk of infection. Not enough is

:15:05.:15:09.

known about how to prevent them or cure them. Amazingly there is not a

:15:10.:15:13.

single vaccine against any fungal pathogen out there. More than one

:15:14.:15:18.

million people die each year when the cells inindividual their body

and a vaccine is only one weapon in the cells inindividual their body

the armoury being developed by these scientists at Aberdeen University.

:15:25.:15:28.

We need better drugs to be able to combat infections, we have drugs and

:15:29.:15:32.

they work but they can have bad side effects and we have worryingly

:15:33.:15:36.

increasing resistance to the drug, one of the greatest cause of death

:15:37.:15:40.

is the fact that clinicians are unable to diagnose the infections

:15:41.:15:45.

quick enough, so if we had better diagnostics that would save lives.

:15:46.:15:48.

The odds are stacked against patients like Rosie, but she has

:15:49.:15:53.

beaten them. This work could mean countless others do too.

:15:54.:15:57.

A look now at other stories, from across the country.

:15:58.:16:00.

Seven buses have been destroyed in a fire at a depot in Greenock,

:16:01.:16:03.

Emergency services were called to the premises of Wilsons Buses

:16:04.:16:08.

in Baker Street at one o'clock in the morning.

:16:09.:16:10.

Forensic scientists are at the scene, and police have

:16:11.:16:13.

A 17-year-old boy has been rescued after falling down a steep

:16:14.:16:19.

gorge on a remote farm near Sanquhar in Dumfriesshire.

:16:20.:16:23.

Moffat Mountain Rescue team was called out early this morning.

:16:24.:16:26.

Both the Scottish Ambulance Service and a Coastguard rescue

:16:27.:16:29.

helicopter had been unable to reach the teenager,

:16:30.:16:31.

They eventually managed to get a stretcher to the casualty,

:16:32.:16:38.

and he was taken to Dumfries Infirmary for treatment.

:16:39.:16:41.

Post Office workers across the UK went on strike today in a dispute

:16:42.:16:45.

over branch closures, job losses and changes to pensions.

:16:46.:16:49.

The 24-hour walkout, involving staff in Glasgow

:16:50.:16:54.

is being staged by members of Unite and the Communication Workers union.

:16:55.:16:59.

An agreement's been reached that will see a mountain weather

:17:00.:17:02.

The Mountain Weather Information Service had warned it might be

:17:03.:17:07.

forced to close, if its public funding was withdrawn.

:17:08.:17:10.

Now a deal has been reached with Sport Scotland to secure

:17:11.:17:13.

money for the service for at least three years.

:17:14.:17:17.

Two Scottish universities have launched a programme to tackle

:17:18.:17:23.

the problem of sexual assault....A report by the National Union

:17:24.:17:26.

of Students suggests that one in five experience some sort

:17:27.:17:29.

of sexual harassment during their first week of term.

:17:30.:17:33.

The Let's Talk initiative is a joint project between Glasgow University

:17:34.:17:36.

Sexual violence as a crime area is chronically underreported. The

:17:37.:17:50.

issue, we're not suggesting Glasgow has some problem not replicated

:17:51.:17:54.

everywhere else. This is a problem in society. We should be taking the

:17:55.:17:56.

lead as a veep versity. Andy Murray will miss his

:17:57.:17:58.

grandfather's funeral But crease brown's proposal was

:17:59.:18:15.

vetoed by the old firm clubs. Brown told them his suggestion centred on

:18:16.:18:19.

making sure more young Scottish players were introduced to football

:18:20.:18:20.

sooner. COMMENTATOR: McCoist. Yes. This is

:18:21.:18:32.

Scotland beating France on the way to qualifying for the 1990 World

:18:33.:18:40.

Cup. France didn't make Italia 1909 yet won the whole thing in France

:18:41.:18:48.

1998. Craig Brown credits France's former technical director Gerard

:18:49.:18:51.

Houllier for changing their fortune. Gerard's rule was no top division

:18:52.:18:57.

club in France can sign more than 20 players over the age of 21. At

:18:58.:19:01.

Monaco, they brought in two 17-year-olds to the first team.

:19:02.:19:09.

Teary Henry was one. Two years later, they were in the French

:19:10.:19:15.

national team. Convinced Houllier's under-21 rule was the way to go, he

:19:16.:19:21.

failed to get to into Scottish clubs. Representatives from Celtic

:19:22.:19:26.

and Rangers were there. Celtic and Rangers voted against The proposal

:19:27.:19:36.

was never instigated. The old firm feared it would restrict them. Acies

:19:37.:19:40.

have introduced international quality players. I think Hamilton

:19:41.:19:44.

for me have the best set-up in Scotland bringing young players

:19:45.:19:49.

through, developing them. Hopefully, giving them a platform to enhance

:19:50.:19:53.

their life and careers. I think if you look at the two James's that

:19:54.:19:58.

have moved on in particular, certainly they're the trail blazers

:19:59.:20:03.

for that and set the stand order for everyone else. Only Darren Fletcher

:20:04.:20:07.

for that and set the stand order for and Paul Lambert have Champions

:20:08.:20:10.

League winners' medals since it started in 1993. So more trail

:20:11.:20:17.

blazers would be very welcome. You can mow reflections about the last

:20:18.:20:20.

30 years of the Scottish football on the fourth and final episode of the

:20:21.:20:24.

Scotland's Game documentary tonight. Now to Scotland's other national

:20:25.:20:29.

game - because this weekend two teams from the Highlands meet

:20:30.:20:33.

in final of the Camanchd Cup. Oban Camanachd will be out to cause

:20:34.:20:36.

an upset when they play thirty times winners Newtonmore

:20:37.:20:39.

at Fortwilliam on Saturday. Our reporter David Currie looks

:20:40.:20:41.

forward to the big match. Queen Victoria was on the thrown

:20:42.:20:50.

when this trophy was cast. It's been the sport's greatest prize ever

:20:51.:20:56.

since. The sport, well, here's a news reel description from 1938.

:20:57.:21:00.

#23u happen to be looking for a nice quiet game, this is the one to

:21:01.:21:05.

avoid. It's the Scottish form of hockey called shinity. One of the

:21:06.:21:08.

club's in that film won the trophy hockey called shinity. One of the

:21:09.:21:12.

that year. They've won it twice since. The Camacheros have another

:21:13.:21:19.

attempt on Saturday. For Oban, it's massive. There's people coming up to

:21:20.:21:25.

me that don't even know them. They recognise me from whatever. Whether

:21:26.:21:31.

it's the semi time or Wharfe. People coming up saying we're going to see

:21:32.:21:34.

the game. There's a buzz about the town.

:21:35.:21:37.

COMMENTATOR: He's in the box! He's in the net! Oban are up against the

:21:38.:21:45.

most successful team in the club's history. Newton Moor have won it 30

:21:46.:21:53.

times. Been in many finals myself. Seen both sides of the scenario. The

:21:54.:22:01.

joy and the hurt of defeat. If the Cup's back in Newton, it will be a

:22:02.:22:11.

good weekend. It's heads. So... Oban have already scored a miner victory.

:22:12.:22:16.

The winners of the Cup will not be decided on a coin toss. The action

:22:17.:22:23.

won't be staged like it was for that news reel in 1938.

:22:24.:22:27.

COMMENTATOR: There's a player mistaken for the ball. He shouldn't

:22:28.:22:31.

have got in the way of the player! Goodbye.

Good evening. For some, it was warm. We start with Cowles. Beach weather

for some today. Not all. That picture taken on the north

Sutherland coast. 26 was our top hot spot in Boyne in Aberdeenshire. If

you had cloud down the west or east coast, much cooler. That wet weather

Aberdeenshire and Shetland. Elsewhere, dry and bright. Spells of

sunshine. A fresh feel. Temperatures 15-17 Celsius. Bear in mind some

areas today had temperatures in the mid--20s. A different day entirely.

:26:24.:26:28.

Around the west coast, cloud, sunshine and finally, we've lost

:26:53.:26:57.

That means the first half of the weekend is dry and bright. Some

lovely spells of sunshine. Temperatures where they should be
