That's all from the BBC News at Six, so it's goodbye from me,

:00:00.:00:00.

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

Staying in their Highland home, the Brain Family,

uncertain future this evening, after being told the leave the UK six

:01:43.:01:46.

weeks ago, they've now found work which means they can fulfil a dream

:01:47.:01:50.

and stay in the Highlands. Overwhelmed with emotion. I can't

:01:51.:01:54.

describe how I feel. Seven months now we have been without work and,

:01:55.:01:59.

you know, struggling and fight through this whole process. Gregg

:02:00.:02:08.

Gregg Brain came here to study at the university of the Highland and

:02:09.:02:12.

Islands on a student veesia. They understood they be able to stay and

:02:13.:02:17.

work here after she completed the course, but immigration schools

:02:18.:02:20.

changed making that more difficult. Now she has secured a new museum

curator's post with a national hotel chain, which meets Home Office

:02:28.:02:31.

requirement, giving them leave to remain in the UK. We have a

:02:32.:02:36.

sponsorship on board. They speeded a sponsorship for this particular

:02:37.:02:39.

position but the position meets all the criteria for the Home Office. We

:02:40.:02:43.

feel like we have been guided. We followed the path that needed to

:02:44.:02:48.

happen. We quite often found, in our lives, that we get reminded that

:02:49.:02:52.

things for us happen, not just in the 11th hour but the 59th minute,

:02:53.:02:56.

just to remind us that it is not entirely us. After a high-profile

:02:57.:03:01.

campaign was launched for them to stay, the Home Office argued that it

:03:02.:03:04.

gave the family a number of extension, allowing them time to

:03:05.:03:07.

secure a job which would meet immigration rules. But their local

:03:08.:03:12.

MP says lessons must be learned from the way they were treated All this

:03:13.:03:15.

grief and all effort that so many people had to put in place over the

:03:16.:03:19.

last few months was unnecessary. I think it really demonstrates that

:03:20.:03:22.

ultimately, we need control of immigration policy here in Scotland,

:03:23.:03:26.

so we can make decision based on our own needs and own criteria and I

:03:27.:03:30.

look forward to the situation that no-one else has to go through the

:03:31.:03:33.

kind of thing that the family have gone through over the course of the

:03:34.:03:37.

next few months. After months of living in temporary accommodation,

:03:38.:03:40.

the family are now looking for a permanent home but they have one

request of their young son, Laclin. What do you want in the back yard? A

:03:47.:03:50.

trampoline. And we can speak to

:03:51.:03:52.

Gregg and Kathryn Brain Greg this has been a long

:03:53.:03:56.

and exhausting process for you - what life lessons have you learned

:03:57.:04:01.

having lived through all this? The importance of persistence. Yes.

:04:02.:04:15.

You must be feeling very happy tonight. Relieved as well. What are

:04:16.:04:19.

your thoughts on what you have gone through and the way that the Home

:04:20.:04:25.

Office handled the case? ? Look, we are absolutely elated that we have

:04:26.:04:30.

got this leave to remain now. So I'm feeling elation that we are able to

:04:31.:04:33.

stay. I'm feeling furious that we have had to go through all of this

:04:34.:04:39.

to get to this point when we were proimsed a two-year visa after

:04:40.:04:41.

Katherine's studies when we first arrived. Mostly I'm feeling

:04:42.:04:45.

gratitude for the support we have had. The MP, to our lar, to

:04:46.:04:50.

fulfilled his brief and presented an application that would give the Home

:04:51.:04:54.

Office no option but say yes and the support we have had from the

:04:55.:04:58.

community, be that Ding skas ball, the Highlands, Scotland and all of

:04:59.:05:02.

the UK. . We have had cards from as far afield from Essex, giving us

:05:03.:05:06.

messages of support. So to all of those people thank you very much.

:05:07.:05:10.

All that of political support, the media attention your case received,

:05:11.:05:13.

Kathryn, how much do you think that helped your case to stand out. You

:05:14.:05:17.

are not alone, lots of other people aren't as lucky as you have been. I

:05:18.:05:25.

don't know if there is a lot of luck in it. It was a lot of hard work

:05:26.:05:30.

from so many people. But one thing our coverage of our situation has

:05:31.:05:33.

brought forward, as so many other families that are in similar fights

:05:34.:05:39.

with the Home Office, for legitimate cases, they are completely

:05:40.:05:43.

legitimate in their application, that are struggling with trying to

:05:44.:05:47.

meet the Home Office criteria, which, you know, it may suit some

:05:48.:05:51.

parts of the country but not all parts of the country, so a regional

:05:52.:05:56.

policy is what is really needed. As a family you can start planning

:05:57.:06:02.

ahead to the future. What are your hopes now, apart from the

:06:03.:06:07.

trampoline? Well, yes, he definitely wants that trampoline.

:06:08.:06:12.

Well, the immediate plans, the plans we have had in place for a couple of

:06:13.:06:16.

weeks now s I'm graduating with my degree. I actually have to hand my

:06:17.:06:20.

degree back to the university so they can give it to me formally at

:06:21.:06:26.

Orkney at the Cathedral. I'm so looking forward to that. And an

:06:27.:06:30.

anniversary. And we have been married 25 years next week, so we

:06:31.:06:34.

are celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary up there as well by

:06:35.:06:39.

renewing our vows or receiving a blessing at the St Magnus Cathedral

:06:40.:06:43.

while we are there. If not on the Friday, most likely on Saturday if

:06:44.:06:46.

we can arrangement but we have to get them in place yet.

:06:47.:06:49.

Congratulations on that and thank you for joining us this evening.

:06:50.:06:52.

A social worker involved in the case of the murdered Fife toddler,

:06:53.:06:55.

A watchdog found Lesley Bate guilty of 12 charges involving

:06:56.:07:03.

It said her misconduct amounted to neglect.

:07:04.:07:06.

But it also criticised her employer and some of the witnesses

:07:07.:07:08.

Panel members heard five days of evidence and today delivered their

:07:09.:07:21.

judgment on Lesley Bate. She stayed away. The charges against her ran it

:07:22.:07:28.

five pages. She was found guilty in all but one. 12 charges, involving

:07:29.:07:31.

15 children over a three-year period. Some of them were thought to

:07:32.:07:36.

be the a risk of physical and sexual abuse. One of those children was

:07:37.:07:42.

Liam Fee. A child minder first raised concerns with her social work

:07:43.:07:47.

in January 2013. Liam has a massive bruise on his forehead. A month

:07:48.:07:50.

later, further concerns about a neck injury. More than a year later, Liam

:07:51.:07:55.

was murdered by his mother and her partner. Lesley Bate had visited

:07:56.:08:00.

Liam's home after the first injury. His mother said Liam had fallen out

:08:01.:08:06.

of his cot. Miss Bate accepted that. She then failed to follow up on the

:08:07.:08:10.

later concerns. None of this will surprise this who feared from Liam's

:08:11.:08:15.

safety and tried to get him help. The whole community is completely

:08:16.:08:20.

knocked by this. The worst part is that a lot of people were speaking

:08:21.:08:24.

up and obviously we weren't taken seriously enough. The Scottish

:08:25.:08:29.

social services Council panel found Lesley Bate left Liam Fee and other

:08:30.:08:32.

children at risk of actual or potential harm and that her "serious

:08:33.:08:39.

misconduct" amounted to neglect. Fife Council says it has every

:08:40.:08:43.

confidence in the potentiallyism and Fife Council says it has every

:08:44.:08:45.

integrity of the staff who gave evidence but tonight there are calls

:08:46.:08:50.

for a wider review. It is very clear there was no joined-up working and

:08:51.:08:53.

the communication seems to have been extremely poor throughout this case

:08:54.:08:57.

and we have to make sure there are no others who were allowed to slip

:08:58.:09:04.

through the net. Whether or not the authorities could have done more to

:09:05.:09:08.

stop the murders is now being investigated by a case review. Fife

:09:09.:09:11.

Council declined to be interviewed today. In a statement it said the

:09:12.:09:17.

Lesley Bate case did not reflect current practice or the high

:09:18.:09:21.

standards of professionalism it expects from its social work staff.

:09:22.:09:25.

Almost a quarter of young women in Scotland have reported

:09:26.:09:27.

they've self-harmed, according to a comprehensive survey

:09:28.:09:29.

It also found 8% have attempted suicide.

:09:30.:09:36.

The figures in the Scottish Health Survey further highlight the link

:09:37.:09:39.

between poor health and anxiety, with deprivation.

:09:40.:09:40.

Our Home Affairs Correspondent Reevel Alderson reports.

:09:41.:09:46.

How do we feel about ourselves? The annual health survey highlights

:09:47.:09:52.

changes in personal well-being among Scots. The results show the levels

:09:53.:09:57.

of anxiety and depression being felt, and surprisingly, those in the

:09:58.:10:01.

most deprived areas, are more likely to suffer symptoms. 9% of film

:10:02.:10:07.

self-harmed in the past year. The figure for men was 6%. But among

:10:08.:10:13.

young women the figure was 23%, almost one-quarter. For young men

:10:14.:10:21.

approximates more worryingly is the attempted suicide attempts. Mental

:10:22.:10:24.

health charities say they are not surprised. They say they have

:10:25.:10:27.

health charities say they are not received an increase number of calls

:10:28.:10:29.

from young people seeking help. We know that from the research and

:10:30.:10:33.

evidence we have been looking at over the last few weeks, that young

:10:34.:10:36.

women and body image is a real issue. So there is a lot going on in

:10:37.:10:43.

young people's lives and, therefore, the increase in self-harm,

:10:44.:10:45.

particularly with young women, is a way that they can start to perhaps

:10:46.:10:51.

control situations themselves. The health survey also reveals an

:10:52.:10:56.

increase in the number of people using electronic cigarettes, vaping,

:10:57.:10:59.

and a further decline in those smoke, although it shows one in five

:11:00.:11:04.

still smokes. It also shows fewer children are exposed to second-hand

:11:05.:11:08.

smoke in the home. From heart disease, obesity and departmental

:11:09.:11:13.

health, the survey's same to provide the Government with the information

:11:14.:11:16.

needed to tackle the health problems. - obesity and dental

:11:17.:11:21.

health. We need this to be able to provide a whole picture of the

:11:22.:11:24.

nation's health and how it has changed over time. Certainly, what

:11:25.:11:28.

we are able to see, on measures like smoking, for example, is there has

:11:29.:11:33.

been a long-term decline. Clearly information campaigns aren't enough.

:11:34.:11:37.

Only one in five Scots meets the recommendation of five portions of

:11:38.:11:40.

fresh fruit and veg a day. The same level as 13 years ago.

:11:41.:11:46.

Today's health figures also show there's been almost no change

:11:47.:11:48.

in levels of physical activity in Scotland.

:11:49.:11:50.

A quarter of all children and a third of adults are failing

:11:51.:11:53.

to meet activity guidelines set by the Scottish Government.

:11:54.:11:56.

This despite a promise that the Commonwealth Games

:11:57.:12:00.

would inspire people to become more active.

:12:01.:12:01.

This is the sort of cheap and cheerful activity that can encourage

:12:02.:12:15.

healthy habits. We are stuck inside like all day and then just to get

:12:16.:12:19.

fresh air and run is good. I think it is really fun. It helps you get

:12:20.:12:25.

healthy and fit. The daily mile has been adopted by schools up and down

:12:26.:12:26.

the country. But it didn't have any been adopted by schools up and down

:12:27.:12:30.

connection to the Commonwealth Games. Glasgow 2014 clearly was

:12:31.:12:35.

popular. A catalyst for regeneration in the East End of the city. It

:12:36.:12:41.

helped create a wave of elite athletes, with more success in Rio,

:12:42.:12:45.

but when it comes to mass participation in sport, we don't

:12:46.:12:49.

appear to be getting the message - begging the question: Why did

:12:50.:12:54.

politicians say it will? Inactivity is the second-biggest killer in

:12:55.:12:58.

Scotland and the Government has set targets to combat it. It is falling

:12:59.:13:02.

far short of this. Activity levels remain stagnant. Obesity levels are

:13:03.:13:07.

poor. In fact, there's been no significant rise in children

:13:08.:13:10.

participating in sport since 2008. That was before the Olympics and the

:13:11.:13:16.

comop wealth Games came along. - Commonwealth Games. I don't accept

:13:17.:13:20.

that. I think the Games have been an important part in ensuring sport and

:13:21.:13:24.

physical activity remain high on the agenda. The whole investment in PE

:13:25.:13:28.

and getting 10% of schools doing two hours and two periods of PE to 98%

:13:29.:13:33.

of schools was a legacy from the Commonwealth Games. One-third of the

:13:34.:13:37.

population is enactive. Researchers say to change that will require

:13:38.:13:40.

population is enactive. Researchers cultural shift Sport is probably not

:13:41.:13:43.

the first option for those people. We probably need to look how we can

:13:44.:13:49.

get them active through active living, through cycling, walk,

:13:50.:13:52.

gardening, those activities rather than sfort itself. And this is the

:13:53.:13:57.

sort of thing. - sport itself. And this is the sort of thing, walking

:13:58.:14:02.

groups, big benefits It keeps them in touch physically. It improves

:14:03.:14:04.

groups, big benefits It keeps them mobility and balance and we are all

:14:05.:14:10.

very sociable. There is lofts talk, sometimes far too much and less

:14:11.:14:15.

concentration. The attitudinal shift, it appears, to get the nation

:14:16.:14:20.

active, will not come about by hosting a big sporting event.

:14:21.:14:22.

And there will be more on that story on Scotland 2016 tonigh.

:14:23.:14:25.

So we have fewer smokers and less binge drinking but what have the

:14:26.:14:36.

Scots got against fruit and veg. Our already-poor die vets failed to

:14:37.:14:40.

improve over the past decade. So is it time it take tough action? We'll

:14:41.:14:46.

discuss on BBC Two Scotland tonight at 10.30pm.

:14:47.:14:48.

You're watching BBC Reporting Scotland.

:14:49.:14:49.

The Brains, an Australian family facing deportation,

:14:50.:14:53.

have been granted leave to remain in the Highlands,

:14:54.:14:55.

The Scottish FA is investigating claims that the Rangers' player,

:14:56.:15:05.

Joey Barton, broke its gambling rules by betting on a match.

:15:06.:15:14.

Police are investigating a rape at a bus stop

:15:15.:15:17.

The serious sexual assault was reported to have

:15:18.:15:24.

happened in Lothian Road, near St John's Church and opposite

:15:25.:15:27.

the Waldorf Astoria hotel in the early hours of the morning.

:15:28.:15:34.

The RMT Union say they are recommending members accept a deal

:15:35.:15:37.

with Scotrail that should mean the end of strike action

:15:38.:15:39.

It means both drivers and conductors will operate train doors.

:15:40.:15:43.

Thousands of passengers were caught up in the summer strikes.

:15:44.:15:45.

It bass 123 days of misery for rail passengers. Thousands were delayed

:15:46.:15:58.

Ascot rail services were cancelled across the network. The RMT's

:15:59.:16:02.

decision to recommend a new deal to its members means services will

:16:03.:16:07.

probably now get back on track. The union says the role of train guards

:16:08.:16:11.

has been saved. For them, it's a victory. What we've managed to

:16:12.:16:17.

achieve and what we've actually managed to deliver is safe trains.

:16:18.:16:21.

We've now delivered the guard will be on the train and the guard will

:16:22.:16:26.

be in fully operational control of the doors. That, in RMT's strong

:16:27.:16:33.

opinion, constitutes safe Scottish trains. At the heart of this dispute

:16:34.:16:37.

was the question of who opens and closes the train doors. ScotRail

:16:38.:16:41.

wanted drivers to do that on new rolling stock. The RMT said that was

:16:42.:16:46.

a safety issue. So, has ScotRail had to back down? When you are in these

:16:47.:16:51.

negotiations you don't always get what you really wanted. I think the

:16:52.:17:03.

fact that we had the conversations the discussion was all part of a

:17:04.:17:07.

process. Will customers end up paying more? No. That's an

:17:08.:17:14.

unequivocal message ScotRail believe the new deal is a Winton situation

:17:15.:17:21.

for everyone. New rolling stock will be fitted with door controls for

:17:22.:17:27.

conductors. It's not known how much it will add to the cost, but

:17:28.:17:28.

ScotRail will have to bear them. The heavy lifting ship due to remove

:17:29.:17:34.

the Transocean Winner oil rig, after it ran aground on Lewis last

:17:35.:17:36.

month, is due to arrive on site The ship offloaded a rig

:17:37.:17:40.

in the Cromarty Firth and set off Our reporter, Angus

:17:41.:17:44.

Macdonald, has more. Later this evening the heavy lift

:17:45.:17:54.

ship is expected to come into Broad Bay behind me a mile away from the

:17:55.:17:59.

rig which lies at anchor and has lain there for the past few weeks.

:18:00.:18:03.

Then preparations begin in earnest to float the rig onto the heavy lift

:18:04.:18:08.

ship so it can be taken away. A lot of preparation has to go on before

:18:09.:18:12.

then. Timbers have to be laid on the deck of the ship and also airbags

:18:13.:18:18.

have to be put onto the rig to raise it higher in the water so it will

:18:19.:18:23.

float over the submerged deck of the hawk. All of this is going to take

:18:24.:18:27.

time and it's going to mean very precise work. It will also mean they

:18:28.:18:32.

will have to have very good weather. I spoke earlier to the Secretary of

:18:33.:18:37.

State's representative, Huw Shaw, who reckoned they might be able to

:18:38.:18:42.

do this weekend. 'S difficult to predict. Our best guess at the

:18:43.:18:47.

moment is looking into the weekend and Sunday is looking more

:18:48.:18:49.

favourable than Saturday at the moment. We are starting to think

:18:50.:18:53.

along that line. That could change on a daily basis. It could come

:18:54.:18:56.

forward or it may be pushed back. The Scottish FA is investigating

:18:57.:19:03.

claims that the Rangers player, Joey Barton, broke its gambling

:19:04.:19:05.

rules by betting on a recent match. The SFA prevents players

:19:06.:19:08.

from betting on any football games. Here to explain more

:19:09.:19:11.

is our senior football Chris, what exactly

:19:12.:19:12.

is being investigated? Well, the allegation, Laura, is that

:19:13.:19:20.

Joey Barton, who round Rangers in the summer, placed a bet on Celtic's

:19:21.:19:25.

recent Champions League match against Barcelona at the Nou camp, a

:19:26.:19:31.

game the Spanish side won 7-1. A one-off bet. As you say, football

:19:32.:19:35.

players are not allowed to bet on football matches. That's all in a

:19:36.:19:41.

bid to try and combat match-fixing. Investigations on this are at a very

:19:42.:19:45.

early stage. The club are saying absolutely nothing. On this, at the

:19:46.:19:48.

moment, Joey Barton himself is saying nothing. What kind of

:19:49.:19:52.

punishment could he be looking at if he's found guilty? Usually, in this

:19:53.:19:56.

Andy Murray has told BBC Scotland it's time for the tennis authorities

:21:13.:21:15.

to deliver a lasting legacy for the sport in this country.

:21:16.:21:17.

The Olympic and Wimbledon Champion says he welcomes ambitious plans

:21:18.:21:20.

to build 10 new indoor facilities in Scotland over

He was also quizzed by local schoolchildren in Stirling

more years playing at the top level. The more facilities, especially

:22:05.:22:08.

indoors facilities, the better. In Scotland the weather isn't great

:22:09.:22:13.

here and it can be expensive to play. As well indoors, too. More

indoor facilities the better and hopefully they follow-through on

How much better were the girls' questions than mine? Much, much,

much better. They were good. What does your mum think about you
