A threefold rise in children being trafficked into Scotland.

set the whole family back, definitely.

:00:56.:00:56.

sports decide a united approach is best, as they build

:00:57.:01:01.

And conservationists and landowners team up, to learn more about

:01:02.:01:04.

There's been a threefold rise in children being trafficked

:01:05.:01:23.

into Scotland, with the highest numbers from Vietnam.

:01:24.:01:27.

The BBC has also learnt that seven children subsequently

:01:28.:01:29.

disappeared from care, thought to have been taken

:01:30.:01:31.

In this exclusive report our political correspondent Lucy Adams

:01:32.:01:36.

has been to meet some of those who've been trafficked.

:01:37.:01:48.

This boy was sent to Scotland in the lorry when he was 15. As part of the

:01:49.:01:55.

journey, he remembers walking through forest for days. When he

:01:56.:01:59.

arrived, he had no idea what country he was in.

:02:00.:02:07.

TRANSLATION: In the early days, my mind was full of fear and concern.

:02:08.:02:13.

Two of the Vietnamese boys he was with then disappeared. Because those

:02:14.:02:20.

two fled, I was even more scared. His story is not unique. Figures

:02:21.:02:26.

obtained by the BBC show that over 100 children have been trafficked

:02:27.:02:28.

obtained by the BBC show that over into Scotland in the past six years,

:02:29.:02:31.

and more than half of them came from Vietnam. A quarter have been forced

:02:32.:02:38.

to work in cannabis plantations, another quarter in the sex industry.

:02:39.:02:43.

More than 10% became domestic slaves behind closed doors. Others are on

:02:44.:02:48.

our high streets, forced to work in nail bars. I think it is a growing

:02:49.:02:55.

problem because of the refugee crisis. There are many children on

:02:56.:03:00.

the move. It is the tip of the iceberg, because we only see those

:03:01.:03:03.

lucky enough to escape will be rescued from a situation. There are

:03:04.:03:07.

probably a lot of children we don't know about that are being exploited

:03:08.:03:13.

in different situations. For those trafficked into Scotland, the

:03:14.:03:17.

nightmare does not necessarily end once they escape. Seven Vietnamese

:03:18.:03:21.

children have since disappeared, thought to have been abducted by the

:03:22.:03:25.

very gangs that brought them here. That includes a 15-year-old, feared

:03:26.:03:31.

to have been abducted in Glasgow last summer. This boy's parents died

:03:32.:03:40.

when he was ten. A gang found him and forced to work a shoeshine boy.

:03:41.:03:45.

They then put him into the back of a lorry. We cannot show his face

:03:46.:03:48.

because he lives in fear of the gangs who brought him here.

:03:49.:03:54.

TRANSLATION: A person brought a gun to threaten me. He asked me to stay

:03:55.:03:59.

inside, not make any noise. If someone hears me inside, they would

:04:00.:04:03.

kill me. They said if I don't work, they would kill me. Scotland is a

:04:04.:04:10.

long way from Vietnam, but experts say the global refugee crisis means

:04:11.:04:14.

the numbers trafficked here will continue to rise, and that more

:04:15.:04:18.

support is required to ensure that once rescued these children do not

:04:19.:04:24.

go missing again. Lucy joins me now. How big a problem

:04:25.:04:30.

in Scotland is this? Part of the problem is that by its very nature

:04:31.:04:37.

this is a hidden crime. The charity say there is an estimated 13,000

:04:38.:04:40.

victims of trafficking currently held captive around the UK. But

:04:41.:04:44.

these figures show that this is something which is getting a bigger

:04:45.:04:48.

problem in Scotland. Because Scotland is distant, geographically,

:04:49.:04:52.

from some of the main smuggling routes in the south-east of England,

:04:53.:04:56.

sometimes there is an assumption that we are exempt from the problem.

:04:57.:04:59.

These figures show that is not the case. Experts also say that despite

:05:00.:05:05.

seeing these figures, this is just the tip of the iceberg, because all

:05:06.:05:09.

they know about is the children who have been rescued and found, mainly

:05:10.:05:14.

in police raids. They don't know about those still being forced to

:05:15.:05:18.

work behind closed doors. Couldn't they run away, many of them? A

:05:19.:05:23.

number of them are working in nail bars in high streets around

:05:24.:05:27.

Scotland. As you say, it is not as if they are held behind bars. But

:05:28.:05:33.

whereas hundreds of years ago the bonds of Labour were shackles that

:05:34.:05:36.

you could see, now they are invisible. They are being held by

:05:37.:05:40.

fear. Many of them may be debt bonded to their captors, and they

:05:41.:05:45.

are held by threats to their lives, to the lives of their families, and

:05:46.:05:49.

the fact that they are children in a foreign country where they do not

:05:50.:05:50.

speak the language. A drink-driver has admitted causing

:05:51.:05:53.

the death of a woman in a crash, as she returned home

:05:54.:05:56.

from her son's wedding. 57-year-old Marie Laurie had

:05:57.:05:58.

just got into a taxi with her husband, when it was hit

:05:59.:06:00.

by a car being chased Today the High Court in Glasgow

:06:01.:06:03.

heard that the driver, 21-year-old Steven Bennie,

:06:04.:06:06.

was travelling at 80 miles an hour Steven Bennie, in the suit, was 20

:06:07.:06:24.

years old in November last year, with only a provisional licence

:06:25.:06:27.

when, after drinking enough with friends to put him over the

:06:28.:06:30.

drink-drive limit, he refused to stop when police tried to pull him

:06:31.:06:35.

over. Marie Laurie had just got into a taxi with her husband, on their

:06:36.:06:40.

way home from her son's wedding. The court heard that after Steven

:06:41.:06:44.

Bennie, who was driving in an Astra, sped off from the police coming

:06:45.:06:48.

switched off his headlights and was driving at around 80 miles proud in

:06:49.:06:54.

a 30 mph zone. In the taxi, James was handing his wife, Marie Laurie,

:06:55.:06:58.

the flowers she had been given at the wedding. When Steven Bennie's

:06:59.:07:03.

car hit the taxi, it did so with such impact that the taxi spun

:07:04.:07:07.

round. Marie Laurie lost consciousness a few minutes later

:07:08.:07:11.

and despite the actions of the lease and paramedics, she died. Her

:07:12.:07:15.

husband survived but sustained multiple injuries including rib

:07:16.:07:17.

fractures and a laceration to his liver. Marie Laurie's family were

:07:18.:07:22.

clearly shocked when they heard the speed that Steven Bennie was doing.

:07:23.:07:29.

I know it was a 30 mph zone. I thought maybe 60 mph, but it set the

:07:30.:07:33.

whole family back when we heard that. It was his wedding that Marie

:07:34.:07:39.

Laurie had been at. The family are pleased that Steven Bennie has

:07:40.:07:41.

admitted his guilt and they can be left to grieve. Marie Laurie was a

:07:42.:07:46.

admitted his guilt and they can be much loved mother, stepmother,

:07:47.:07:50.

grandmother and aunt. Peacemaker. My mum was just a very genuine woman.

:07:51.:07:56.

Nice. She got on with anybody. I have said this many times. She got

:07:57.:08:01.

on with anybody. She loved her family. Steven Bennie was remanded

:08:02.:08:05.

in custody and will be sentenced next month. The judge told him he

:08:06.:08:06.

will be given a prison sentence. The winner of the Labour

:08:07.:08:11.

party's leadership contest between Jeremy Corbyn and Owen Smith

:08:12.:08:13.

will be announced at a special conference

:08:14.:08:15.

in Liverpool tomorrow morning. Our political correspondent

:08:16.:08:17.

Nick Eardley is in Is a Jeremy Corbyn victory now seen

:08:18.:08:19.

as inevitable, Nick? Sally, I think the expectation is

:08:20.:08:37.

that Jeremy Corbyn will be confirmed Labour leader tomorrow in the

:08:38.:08:42.

conference centre on the beautiful banks of the River Mersey. The

:08:43.:08:46.

question is how big he will win, and whether or not it means his internal

:08:47.:08:51.

opponents have two, at least for now, put their criticism to one

:08:52.:08:56.

side. One thing to watch out for is whether the margin between Jeremy

:08:57.:09:00.

Corbyn and his challenger, Owen Smith, is any less in Scotland.

:09:01.:09:04.

People I have spoken to expect that Owen Smith will get a bigger margin

:09:05.:09:07.

of the vote in Scotland, although there is not a sense that he will

:09:08.:09:12.

necessarily win north of the border. What about the indications for

:09:13.:09:16.

Scotland, because Kezia Dugdale publicly backed Owen Smith. What

:09:17.:09:20.

might a Jeremy Corbyn victory mean for relations between the UK and the

:09:21.:09:25.

Scottish party? Kezia Dugdale said last month that she did not think

:09:26.:09:29.

Jeremy Corbyn had wide enough appeal to lead the Labour Party to a UK

:09:30.:09:35.

general election victory. One of the questions that Kezia Dugdale will

:09:36.:09:38.

face if Jeremy Corbyn does win tomorrow is whether she has changed

:09:39.:09:43.

her mind, and if he is in power in the Labour Party leading up to a

:09:44.:09:46.

general election, whether she thinks it is a lost cause. What I expect

:09:47.:09:51.

tomorrow is that Jeremy Corbyn will say, we need to wipe the slate

:09:52.:09:55.

clean, get behind whoever the leader is and move forward as a party. I

:09:56.:10:00.

think you will hear something similar from Kezia Dugdale tomorrow.

:10:01.:10:06.

She will want to give the message of unity to say, let's stop fighting

:10:07.:10:08.

each other and spend more time fighting political opponents. But

:10:09.:10:13.

the key differences and the key personalities are likely to remain

:10:14.:10:18.

the same. And whether those differences can be solved moving

:10:19.:10:23.

forward, that remains to be seen. A lovely sunset behind you in

:10:24.:10:24.

Liverpool. Thank you. A woman has been charged

:10:25.:10:26.

with culpable homicide, in connection with the death

:10:27.:10:28.

of a man in East Ayrshire yesterday. 41-year-old Martin Gorman was found

:10:29.:10:31.

with serious injuries at a home in Kilmarnock in the early hours,

:10:32.:10:34.

but he later died in hospital. Lisa Burnett, who's 28,

:10:35.:10:37.

made no plea or declaration at Kilmarnock Sheriff Court

:10:38.:10:39.

and was released on bail, Rangers striker Kenny Miller has

:10:40.:10:41.

been arrested in connection with an alleged disturbance

:10:42.:10:49.

at a restaurant The incident happened at Da Luciano

:10:50.:10:50.

in Bothwell on Saturday the 10th of September,

:10:51.:10:55.

hours after Rangers lost Police Scotland confirmed that

:10:56.:10:57.

a 36-year-old man had been arrested and was the subject of a report

:10:58.:11:02.

to the Procurator Fiscal Edinburgh Council has ordered

:11:03.:11:05.

a survey of its buildings, following the closure of 17 schools

:11:06.:11:17.

earlier this year due ?500,000 has been set aside

:11:18.:11:19.

for the checks on buildings constructed at about the same

:11:20.:11:23.

time as the schools. It started with the collapse of this

:11:24.:11:37.

wall, and similar construction flaws were discovered at other PFI schools

:11:38.:11:43.

in Edinburgh. 17 were closed. Repairs done, pupils back in class,

:11:44.:11:47.

Edinburgh Council have now ordered a survey of other city buildings to

:11:48.:11:50.

check whether the problems are more widespread. The surveys will focus

:11:51.:11:56.

on building is built around the same time using a similar design model as

:11:57.:12:00.

the ones where problems have been uncovered. The council are refusing

:12:01.:12:05.

to say exactly which buildings engineers will be looking at, but

:12:06.:12:12.

there are dozens on the list. Described as precautionary, ?500,000

:12:13.:12:16.

has been set aside for work councillors hope will reveal nothing

:12:17.:12:20.

new. You can't rule it out and that is the reason for the survey,

:12:21.:12:24.

although so far the buildings are perfectly sound. Nevertheless, it

:12:25.:12:28.

seems prudent, having discovered problems in the school buildings, to

:12:29.:12:32.

look at others with a similar design, to satisfy ourselves they

:12:33.:12:38.

are completely safe. Last month a BBC investigation revealed

:12:39.:12:40.

construction defects at schools elsewhere in Scotland. This

:12:41.:12:44.

architect believes others should follow Edinburgh's decision to look

:12:45.:12:50.

beyond the school estate. The incredible thing that Fiona Walker's

:12:51.:12:54.

investigation threw up was the extent, the possible extent of how

:12:55.:12:57.

many failings there are potentially in each of those schools. I am

:12:58.:13:00.

many failings there are potentially puzzled but not surprised. I think

:13:01.:13:05.

it is overdue. The surveys are expected to take a few months. All

:13:06.:13:10.

the while, an independent enquiry into the school closures continues,

:13:11.:13:13.

with a report due by the end of the year.

:13:14.:13:15.

You're watching BBC Reporting Scotland.

:13:16.:13:18.

A reminder of tonight's top story:

:13:19.:13:20.

New figures show a threefold rise in children

:13:21.:13:23.

Conservationists and landowners team up to learn more about the threats

:13:24.:13:30.

Three of Scotland's most successful sports have

:13:31.:13:40.

is best as they build for the future.

:13:41.:13:45.

A record-breaking Team GB brought home 67 Olympic medals,

:13:46.:13:47.

and at the Paralympics, another record haul of 147 medals

:13:48.:13:49.

Now it's time to build on that success here in Scotland,

:13:50.:13:54.

with a new approach to maximise results.

:13:55.:13:56.

I am here at Stirling, Scotland's University for sporting excellence,

:13:57.:14:08.

and high-level talks are about to begin. The Chief Executive is of

:14:09.:14:12.

Scottish athletics, cycling and swimming believe that a united

:14:13.:14:15.

approach will better profit all of their sports. So who are the main

:14:16.:14:21.

players? Mark Munro, interim Chief Executive of Scottish athletics.

:14:22.:14:25.

Craig Byrne, Chief Executive of Scottish cycling, and the Chief

:14:26.:14:29.

Executive of Scottish swimming. They Scottish cycling, and the Chief

:14:30.:14:34.

firmly believe a united front could benefit their sports in the

:14:35.:14:37.

organisation, participation, performance and also commercially.

:14:38.:14:44.

By having a product, there is more choice for people, particularly if

:14:45.:14:46.

you look at selling a family product. Not everyone wants to cycle

:14:47.:14:52.

necessarily, or to run or swim, but hopefully if we can package and

:14:53.:14:55.

promote something we will get best value for everybody's resource.

:14:56.:15:01.

Athletics made a decision six years ago to focus on developing clubs,

:15:02.:15:03.

supporting volunteers and support working with coaches, putting

:15:04.:15:08.

coaching the athlete at the heart of sport, and we are starting to see

:15:09.:15:13.

the benefits now. It is about starting to take advantage of those

:15:14.:15:17.

results, the political and public opportunities they present to

:15:18.:15:21.

promote sport. There are lots of good ideas in athletics but it is

:15:22.:15:24.

good to look at what other sports are doing. Sometimes you think we

:15:25.:15:28.

are doing similar things but slightly differently, so the slight

:15:29.:15:31.

differences make you think, that is something we had not thought of. It

:15:32.:15:36.

will take time to build the system into a Scottish regional, national

:15:37.:15:41.

system and ultimately being selected on to GB. We know if we get them on

:15:42.:15:46.

GB, they are in the best system in the world, as has been proven over

:15:47.:15:53.

the last three Olympics cycles. Out of the meeting, something that has

:15:54.:15:57.

been reinforced is the importance of our clubs, coaches and supporting

:15:58.:16:00.

performance athletes. We will go away and double our efforts on that

:16:01.:16:06.

front. The talks will continue. The three sports say they are committed

:16:07.:16:09.

to a united approach for years to come.

:16:10.:16:12.

Paralympic gold medallist Gordon Reid has told BBC Scotland

:16:13.:16:14.

of being wheelchair tennis's world number one.

:16:15.:16:19.

The 24-year-old is confident he can hang onto the ranking

:16:20.:16:22.

he achieved following some brilliant form this year,

:16:23.:16:24.

in which he's won four Grand Slam titles,

:16:25.:16:26.

as well as Paralympic gold and silver in Rio.

:16:27.:16:33.

It is a good pressure to have, yeah, it's not gone to be easy, there are

:16:34.:16:40.

a lot of good players in our sport, at the top of the men's game, so it

:16:41.:16:44.

is going to be tough, people are going to be gunning for me, but I

:16:45.:16:48.

will do my best to try to stay at there.

:16:49.:16:52.

Other stories from across the country:

:16:53.:16:54.

Children who were treated at Dundee's Ninewells Hospital

:16:55.:16:56.

after an E.coli O157 outbreak in Carnoustie have been discharged.

:16:57.:16:58.

Some of the children were confirmed to have the infection,

:16:59.:17:01.

A possible link with a national outbreak,

:17:02.:17:04.

in which a three-year-old girl from Dunbartonshire died

:17:05.:17:06.

and 21 other people were infected, is being investigated.

:17:07.:17:13.

Plans to load the damaged oil rig Transocean Winner onto a giant

:17:14.:17:16.

transportation ship have been postponed because of the weather.

:17:17.:17:19.

Salvage experts had been hoping to begin the operation

:17:20.:17:22.

but high winds mean it's no longer possible.

:17:23.:17:27.

The rig ran aground on the island last month,

:17:28.:17:30.

after breaking its tow line during a storm.

:17:31.:17:35.

Six homes were flooded in the Liberton area of Edinburgh

:17:36.:17:37.

this morning after a burst water main.

:17:38.:17:39.

Other parts of the city lost water supplies or experienced low pressure

:17:40.:17:42.

following the burst, which happened around 1am.

:17:43.:17:50.

for a new conservation zone in the seas around Tiree and Coll.

:17:51.:17:54.

The proposed Special Protected Area is being set up to protect colonies

:17:55.:17:58.

of common eider duck and great northern diver,

:17:59.:18:01.

which winter on the seas around the islands.

:18:02.:18:05.

Carbisdale Castle in Sutherland, which was a youth hostel

:18:06.:18:09.

for six decades, has been sold to a London investment fund.

:18:10.:18:12.

The 40-room baronial mansion was completed in 1907

:18:13.:18:15.

and first owned by the then Duchess of Sutherland.

:18:16.:18:19.

It was described as the jewel in the crown of Scottish hostelling,

:18:20.:18:23.

but was badly damaged by winter weather several years ago.

:18:24.:18:25.

The castle had been on the market for less than ?1 million.

:18:26.:18:30.

The Wigtown Book Festival got under way today.

:18:31.:18:32.

The ten-day long event is now the second biggest of its kind

:18:33.:18:35.

It attracts a host of top politicians, broadcasters

:18:36.:18:40.

and literary figures, including Graeme Macrae Burnet,

:18:41.:18:43.

who's been shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize.

:18:44.:18:52.

There is a lot more competition in the festival world now than there

:18:53.:18:57.

was ten years ago, there are something like 300 book festivals

:18:58.:19:02.

all over the country, so you always fighting for authors' time, fighting

:19:03.:19:06.

for publishers' attention. The Old Firm rivalry is

:19:07.:19:09.

the fiercest in Scottish football, but many believe

:19:10.:19:11.

it's closely followed by the Aberdeen versus Rangers

:19:12.:19:12.

fixture. The pair meet on Sunday for the

:19:13.:19:15.

first time since the Ibrox club's financial meltdown four years ago,

:19:16.:19:19.

so just why is there a deep rooted rivalry between two

:19:20.:19:23.

clubs 150 miles apart? Here's our senior football reporter,

:19:24.:19:26.

Chris Mclaughlin. Some say it was sparked after a

:19:27.:19:35.

sickening tackle in this match in 1988. I remember there was a few

:19:36.:19:42.

people around the ball, I was on the touchline, the ball squirted out

:19:43.:19:47.

have had a very good career. Ian Durant sustained ligament damage and

was out of action for two years, but one Aberdeen legendary members

asking a local about the rivalry years before. I said, what is it

with Rangers, Rangers and Celtic, who do you hate most? One of them

:20:20.:20:28.

says, in the Aberdeen dialect, we don't mind Celtic, but we hate

:20:29.:20:35.

Rangers. So even then, there was a kind of vitriolic hatred against

:20:36.:20:39.

Rangers. Some believe it was down to the arrival of another Glaswegian to

the north-east. When Alex Ferguson took over, made Aberdeen the team it

became a 1980s, it very unusual for Rangers to beat Aberdeen, and so you

could imagine that the potential for resentment there on the brain just

:21:14.:21:21.

just football banter, really, I do not think it should cause any

:21:22.:21:26.

offence. But even a former captain of England

:21:27.:21:31.

admit it is a game not to be underestimated. A lot of people say

:21:32.:21:35.

about the rivalry between Rangers and Celtic, but Aberdeen against

:21:36.:21:40.

Rangers is pretty intense, real hatred, that is, right at there.

:21:41.:21:44.

Where once league titles were at stake, and Sunday it is purely about

:21:45.:21:48.

bragging rights, that and the renewal of old rivalries.

:21:49.:21:51.

A research project has been trying to find out

:21:52.:21:54.

why so many hen harrier nest sites fail in Scotland.

:21:55.:21:56.

Shooting estates have long been accused of disturbing the nests.

:21:57.:21:59.

Now land managers are working with conservationists

:22:00.:22:00.

to better understand what's happening.

:22:01.:22:04.

And they've made some unexpected discoveries.

:22:05.:22:07.

Dougie Vipond has been finding out more.

:22:08.:22:15.

Hen harriers always build their nests on the ground. This project

:22:16.:22:23.

involves placing hidden cameras at their nest sites to find out what

:22:24.:22:28.

threats they face. Brian Etheridge has worked for RSPB for 30 years.

:22:29.:22:34.

Why do think numbers are so low? Unfortunately, I find in most cases

:22:35.:22:38.

it is the land management that is the problem, which is mainly driven

:22:39.:22:42.

grouse moors. But many landowners say they try to provide a safe haven

:22:43.:22:49.

for wildlife. By keeping it small, you have got... Tim Baines as a

:22:50.:22:55.

spokesman for Scottish Land and Estates, the body that represents

:22:56.:22:58.

most of the grouse shooting moorland.

:22:59.:23:03.

You always painted as the bad guys, is that frustrating? People get

:23:04.:23:06.

angry, because they are out every day, taking responsibility for

:23:07.:23:09.

balancing all the different things that they have to do in managing

:23:10.:23:15.

moorland. It is the end of the breeding season, and the nest

:23:16.:23:20.

cameras are coming down. Initially, there are five chicks on the nest,

:23:21.:23:31.

and the camera records the temperature, it is particularly

:23:32.:23:34.

cold, and only one of the original five survives due to the extreme

:23:35.:23:41.

temperature ranges. At another site in the South of Scotland, you can

:23:42.:23:44.

see the chicks are relaxing, and over the next couple of shots... A

:23:45.:23:54.

fox, my goodness, look at that! Really aggressive, feisty reaction.

:23:55.:23:57.

Unfortunately, we learn later on that in this case the chick was

:23:58.:24:02.

nipped by the fox and was found dead. The partnership between

:24:03.:24:07.

landowners and conservation agencies has revealed some of the many

:24:08.:24:11.

challenges facing birds of prey, but this collaboration might also holds

:24:12.:24:12.

the key to their future. And you can see more

:24:13.:24:15.

of Dougie Vipond's report on Landward tonight

about the weekend weather now. , Yes, the rain has set in during

the course of the day in the north and north-west, and for a good part

:25:21.:25:25.

of tomorrow it will go nowhere, persistent and heavy pulses of rain.

:25:26.:25:31.

The Met office has issued a yellow warning, a risk of flooding and

hazardous driving conditions, and it will be accompanied by heavy winds.

:25:40.:25:46.

Dry and cloudy for the east overnight, lows of around ten or 11

:26:02.:26:05.

winds. But with that southerly wind direction, there will be sheltered

:26:06.:26:09.

from the hills across the likes of the Borders, Lothians, Edinburgh,

:26:10.:26:14.

Aberdeenshire and the Moray coast, where temperatures will peak at

:26:15.:26:19.

perhaps 20 Celsius, given any sunshine. That is very much the

:26:20.:26:23.

exception to the rule, most of us will be under a blanket of cloud,

:26:24.:26:27.

persistent and heavy outbreaks of rain. Something of a clearance

:26:28.:26:31.

towards the Western Isles, late tomorrow afternoon, and the winds

:26:32.:26:37.

easing here. Across the far north-east, any rain will be light

:26:38.:26:40.

and patchy, although the winds will remain strong to gale force here.

:26:41.:26:46.

For hill walking and climbing, for the more Western Rangers, heavy

a time, that gradually pulls away to the east during the overnight

:27:20.:27:24.

period, and the winds will ease for all. Into Sunday, we still have low

:27:25.:27:29.

pressure in charge, and we have a westerly airflow and Sunday which

:27:30.:27:33.

will bring in a number of showers across the west and north-west

:27:34.:27:37.

especially, with the best of any drier and brighter interludes found

:27:38.:27:41.

towards eastern areas, a fresher feel, and indeed Monday will be a

:27:42.:27:44.

very similar day. That is the forecast, Sally.

:27:45.:27:46.

There's been a threefold rise in children

:27:47.:27:51.

being trafficked into Scotland, with the highest

:27:52.:27:52.

The BBC has also learnt that seven children subsequently

:27:53.:27:55.

thought to have been taken by their traffickers.

:27:56.:28:03.

I'll be back with the headlines at eight and the late bulletin

:28:04.:28:07.

Until then, from everyone on the team,

:28:08.:28:10.

right across the country, have a very good evening.
