The Glasgow East MP Natalie McGarry has been charged

:00:00.:00:13.

The first shipment of shale gas to the UK

:00:14.:00:16.

arrives at Grangemouth but can't dock because

:00:17.:00:19.

These people are queuing to get on the patients'

:00:20.:00:21.

I will say that they are very non-compassionate. All the trying to

:00:22.:00:33.

do is register. What are we supposed to do?

:00:34.:00:34.

We look at the impact of Scotland's GP crisis.

:00:35.:00:36.

Also on the programme, the Queen visits Ballater to see how

:00:37.:00:40.

it's recovering from the severe floods earlier this year.

:00:41.:00:44.

And the Olympic champion Callum Skinner says he's

:00:45.:00:47.

released his medical records to prove he's a clean athlete.

:00:48.:01:04.

Police have charged the Glasgow East MP Natalie McGarry

:01:05.:01:09.

Ms McGarry has been under investigation after the Women

:01:10.:01:14.

for Independence campaign group reported discrepancies

:01:15.:01:17.

The MP stood down from the SNP group at Westminster last year but always

:01:18.:01:27.

A report will now go to the Procurator Fiscal.

:01:28.:01:30.

Our political editor Brian Taylor has more details.

:01:31.:01:33.

Natalie McGarry, Scottish National party, 24,000... Cheering. Triumph,

:01:34.:01:45.

Natalie McGarry ousted Margaret Curran of Labour in Glasgow East at

:01:46.:01:50.

the UK general election. It was part of a clean sweep for the SNP in

:01:51.:01:53.

the UK general election. It was part Glasgow. Natalie McGarry was at

:01:54.:01:56.

Nicola Sturgeon's side to celebrate that success. And the sense of

:01:57.:02:01.

uplift continued when McGarry made her maiden speech in the House of

:02:02.:02:05.

Commons. I am privileged to be here, serving the people of Glasgow East.

:02:06.:02:10.

I was swept here on a tide of optimism. That tide seemed to turn

:02:11.:02:16.

when concerns were raised about funding within the campaign group

:02:17.:02:19.

Women for Independence. Natalie McGarry was a leading member. As

:02:20.:02:23.

Women for Independence. Natalie those concerns emerged, Miss McGarry

:02:24.:02:26.

resigned the whip in December last year, determined, she said, to clear

:02:27.:02:31.

her name. Although no longer part of the SNP she has remained the Glasgow

:02:32.:02:36.

East MP. She even more her wedding dress for a Commons photo shoot of

:02:37.:02:41.

female MPs after having her marriage blessed in a historic chapel at

:02:42.:02:45.

Westminster. Enquiries continued and her solicitor said his client

:02:46.:02:50.

attended the police station this morning on a voluntary basis. He

:02:51.:02:55.

said following an interview the MP was charged with several alleged

:02:56.:02:58.

offences including embezzlement of funds, breach of trust, and an

:02:59.:03:03.

offence under the Scottish independence referendum act 2013.

:03:04.:03:08.

That is the statute which set out the rules for the referendum of

:03:09.:03:13.

2014. It is understood the charges against Natalie McGarry relate both

:03:14.:03:16.

to women for independence and to the SNP Glasgow regional Association.

:03:17.:03:21.

From the outset the MP has stressed her innocence.

:03:22.:03:23.

The first shipment of shale gas has arrived in Scotland from the USA.

:03:24.:03:27.

It was destined for the Ineos refinery at Grangemouth,

:03:28.:03:31.

but the tanker carrying it was unable to dock

:03:32.:03:33.

The company says the shale gas, produced using the controversial

:03:34.:03:36.

fracking technique, will replace dwindling North Sea supplies.

:03:37.:03:42.

Fracking isn't currently taking place in Scotland,

:03:43.:03:45.

while studies take place to examine the potential impact of the process.

:03:46.:03:48.

Environmental groups are criticising the shipment.

:03:49.:03:50.

Here's our environment correspondent, Kevin Keane.

:03:51.:03:58.

A new dawn breaks over the North Sea. And a traditional water solute

:03:59.:04:04.

welcomes the first shipment of shale gas to the UK. On the tip of the

:04:05.:04:11.

bow, a lone piper heralds the arrival of this controversial

:04:12.:04:17.

delivery. The petrochemical giant receiving it says it is necessary

:04:18.:04:20.

for jobs. It's cost effective today, and looking forward it will take

:04:21.:04:25.

some time to develop the shale gas industry in the UK. When that comes

:04:26.:04:29.

that's going to be a benefit. In the meantime we will secure jobs to get

:04:30.:04:33.

the business running. Ships come and go along the Firth of Forth but this

:04:34.:04:37.

one was always going to attract attention. And this is the iconic

:04:38.:04:43.

scene it's all about. 27,500 cubic metres of shale gas about to

:04:44.:04:47.

disappear under the Forth Bridge on its way to Grangemouth. The

:04:48.:04:52.

controversial shipment was meant to arrive at the quayside with a

:04:53.:04:57.

fanfare, but high winds meant it didn't stop. When it's finally

:04:58.:05:00.

off-loaded, the eating will be fed into the many miles of pipes here,

:05:01.:05:05.

ultimately coming out as small plastic pellets Manufacturing. A

:05:06.:05:10.

Scottish minister was there to greet the sheet -- no Scottish minister

:05:11.:05:14.

was there to greet the chip today, they are keeping their distance

:05:15.:05:17.

while the policy on fracking is considered. It is important that we

:05:18.:05:24.

have a moratorium in place while we in Scotland understand the science

:05:25.:05:29.

behind the proposed technology. It's not for the UK Government to tell

:05:30.:05:33.

the Scottish Government what to do on this issue. We are clear on our

:05:34.:05:37.

policy position in the rest of the UK. We believe there is significant

:05:38.:05:42.

economic benefit that can come from fracking, but in Scotland it is a

:05:43.:05:45.

matter for the Scottish Government. In the States shale gas has boosted

:05:46.:05:49.

the economy but not without controversy. Seismic tremors and

:05:50.:05:52.

water pollution among the issues some have felt. No fracking! No

:05:53.:06:02.

fracking! Here protesters gathered, albeit in small numbers, to reflect

:06:03.:06:06.

those concerns. The impacts of fracking are devastating wherever it

:06:07.:06:10.

happens, and the refrain of the global anti-fracking movement is not

:06:11.:06:13.

here, not anywhere. For now the shale gas ship remains anchored in

:06:14.:06:19.

the first. It will make a fresh attempt to dog on tonight's high

tide. More than quarter of the jobs

:06:21.:06:23.

supported by Britain's oil and gas That's according to

:06:24.:06:26.

the industry's own figures. With the sharp fall in the price

:06:27.:06:29.

of oil, spending and new investment So that's left the question,

:06:30.:06:32.

will the North Sea industry be ready to grow again when this

:06:33.:06:37.

downturn is over? Here's our business and economy

:06:38.:06:40.

editor, Douglas Fraser. The past two years have brought

:06:41.:06:48.

a big financial storm With the oil price well under half

:06:49.:06:51.

of its level until 2014, firms have The cost of producing the average

:06:52.:06:58.

barrel of oil is down The numbers directly employed have

:06:59.:07:02.

fallen from 42,000 to 34,000 - four in every five of them

:07:03.:07:08.

based in Scotland. But it's the supply chain and those

:07:09.:07:10.

who benefit from its spending that The total number supported

:07:11.:07:13.

by the oil and gas industry down from 450,000 two years ago,

:07:14.:07:23.

to 330,000 this year - nearly two out of every five

:07:24.:07:31.

of that total in Scotland. Those lower costs should

:07:32.:07:34.

help to make more projects But firms are reducing the number

:07:35.:07:36.

of projects in their business plans. And exploration is down to only six

:07:37.:07:42.

wells sunk so far this year. So for every barrel newly

:07:43.:07:47.

discovered, four are being extracted If you don't have the investment,

:07:48.:08:03.

you don't have the exploration, you don't have to development, it

:08:04.:08:06.

obviously leads into a drop in production in coming years. So we

:08:07.:08:09.

think we'll see production continuing to go up because of

:08:10.:08:14.

previous investment and efficiency improvements but it's the question

:08:15.:08:17.

of what then after those years, we've gone through those years.

:08:18.:08:20.

Just before the oil price plummeted, the offshore industry was seeing

:08:21.:08:22.

As a result of that, we're now seeing output rise, a bit.

:08:23.:08:28.

That's after steep falls from the peak, 16 years ago.

:08:29.:08:36.

That's expected to level off soon and to fall unless those stranded

:08:37.:08:39.

reserves are brought on-stream and new fields are found.

:08:40.:08:41.

As for the tax take, ?330 billion has been paid to the UK

:08:42.:08:44.

But because there's now very little profit, the tax on profits

:08:45.:08:53.

Scottish Labour is to get new powers to set its own policy and send

:08:54.:09:02.

a representative to the party's UK Executive.

:09:03.:09:05.

The measures were agreed at the party's conference

:09:06.:09:11.

in Liverpool, despite claims part of the package was undemocratic.

:09:12.:09:14.

From Liverpool, here's our political correspondent Nick Eardley.

:09:15.:09:17.

A vote she hopes will help Scottish Labour on the road to recovery. But

:09:18.:09:26.

a victory that didn't come easy. One that brought the party's power

:09:27.:09:31.

struggle to the fore. After days of wrangling, a final heated row over

:09:32.:09:34.

whether Mr Dale should get a seat on the UK executive. The package going

:09:35.:09:40.

forth will gerrymander the NEC and allow for the decision made at the

:09:41.:09:50.

weekend to be vetoed. That contested by Ms Dugdale's allies. An

:09:51.:09:56.

opportunity to close the door on our allies who make the accusation that

:09:57.:09:59.

Scottish Labour cannot talk for Scotland. A challenge that

:10:00.:10:04.

ultimately ended in failure. Resolution one on NEC will changes

:10:05.:10:07.

was carried. This is about more than who has a say on which body within

:10:08.:10:12.

the Labour Party. The Scottish party spent years trying to fend off

:10:13.:10:15.

claims that it's controlled by London. And after days of wrangling

:10:16.:10:21.

here in Liverpool, this is a victory for cosier Dugdale. She's got the

:10:22.:10:23.

autonomy she craves and she has more of a say on what happens UK wide. It

:10:24.:10:29.

delighted Ms Dugdale says she'll take the seat on the executive

:10:30.:10:34.

herself. It's the biggest change to how the Labour Party organises

:10:35.:10:37.

itself in a generation and it's been a long time coming. How do you

:10:38.:10:41.

persuade the country to vote for you? I understand to a lot of people

:10:42.:10:46.

this might seem like nasal gave in, internal to the Labour Party, but it

:10:47.:10:51.

is clear that the Labour Party speaks up for Scotland and put

:10:52.:10:54.

Scotland's first. Tomorrow this man will be beating the drum for his

:10:55.:10:58.

policies, but how closely will that be echoed by the Scottish party?

:10:59.:11:02.

A bin lorry driver has admitted causing the death of an 80-year-old

:11:03.:11:06.

Scott Hamilton reversed a Stirling Council recycling lorry

:11:07.:11:14.

into a mobility scooter used by Peter Wills.

:11:15.:11:16.

At the High Court in Stirling, the 44-year-old was banned

:11:17.:11:19.

from driving immediately and will be sentenced in October.

:11:20.:11:21.

The offence carries a maximum penalty of five years' imprisonment.

:11:22.:11:31.

Do we have a crisis in keeping doctors in general practice?

:11:32.:11:33.

It's a question Holyrood's Health and Sport Committee

:11:34.:11:35.

Since June 2014, more than 100 GPs have left the service.

:11:36.:11:44.

That's left more than one in four practices with vacancies for GPs.

:11:45.:11:48.

Doctors say spending on GP services has fallen over the past ten years

:11:49.:11:53.

Well, the Health Secretary set out to MSPs her vision

:11:54.:12:01.

Our social affairs correspondent Reevel Alderson has been

:12:02.:12:06.

It Tuesday this GP surgery in Edinburgh offers a handful of places

:12:07.:12:17.

on its patient list. Each week dozens are turned away. I think it's

:12:18.:12:23.

quite degrading a wee bit, making people have to queue to sign up.

:12:24.:12:27.

When really you should be able to walk in when you want to register.

:12:28.:12:31.

It's the third unsuccessful attempt to join the practice for this

:12:32.:12:36.

partially sighted woman. I will say they are very uncompassionate. All

:12:37.:12:41.

we are trying to is register. What are we supposed to do? So is it a GP

:12:42.:12:47.

crisis? Doctors leaders say the shortage of GPs is affecting the

:12:48.:12:52.

wider NHS. It will mean more pressure on hospital services,

:12:53.:12:55.

particularly accident and emergency. It means it's increasingly difficult

:12:56.:12:59.

for patients to register with practice. We are beginning to see a

:13:00.:13:03.

situation where lack of GPs mean there may not be a GP available

:13:04.:13:10.

outside of hours. The Royal College of General practitioners has

:13:11.:13:13.

launched a campaign to persuade more medical students like these at

:13:14.:13:14.

Aberdeen University to join the medical students like these at

:13:15.:13:19.

profession, emphasising its not second-best to working in hospital.

:13:20.:13:23.

I don't really know what it is about community medicine, it's something

:13:24.:13:26.

you have to be passionate about to want to do. I suppose you'd probably

:13:27.:13:31.

get to know your patients are a lot better in community medicine but I

:13:32.:13:34.

don't know. I liked the idea that you get to do a bit of everything

:13:35.:13:40.

and build a community, build up a relationship with your patients,

:13:41.:13:44.

follow progress. People, families, stuff like that. The GP crisis is

:13:45.:13:49.

especially Knute Imro areas like Shetland. Here patients can be seen

:13:50.:13:54.

by an advanced nurse practitioner who can diagnose, prescribe and

:13:55.:13:58.

treat them without them seeing a surgery. It cuts down my costs,

:13:59.:14:06.

obviously, and probably, I would think, cuts down on the National

:14:07.:14:10.

Health Service costs. Because Chris, our community nurse, can come along

:14:11.:14:12.

and check me at his convenience and our community nurse, can come along

:14:13.:14:16.

mind. It's part of a new approach to government has developed to free up

:14:17.:14:20.

GP time which is also seen as beneficial for patients. It's about

:14:21.:14:24.

the choice and a better environment to be seen in. I see the patients in

:14:25.:14:30.

their own homes which is a safe and friendly environment. The other

:14:31.:14:32.

option is for them to go and visit their GPs. If we see them in their

:14:33.:14:38.

own home it frees up GP time. It is all about cost and feasibility.

:14:39.:14:43.

Nurses, pharmacists and other specialists are being recruited to

:14:44.:14:47.

work in GP practices, which the government says is part of an

:14:48.:14:49.

increased investment in primary care.

of Ballater whose homes and businesses were hit by severe

:15:17.:15:19.

Our reporter Andrew Anderson is in the town tonight.

:15:20.:15:27.

Can tell you it's a blustery old night here in Ballater, but nothing

:15:28.:15:34.

like it was when Storm Frank hit here back in December. That will

:15:35.:15:39.

live long in the memory of many people here, memories they've been

:15:40.:15:40.

sharing today with the Queen. A neighbour has come to call by

:15:41.:15:49.

Royal Appointment. First stop, the Ballater butchers, one of the

:15:50.:15:54.

businesses badly hit by last December's storm. The Queen listened

:15:55.:15:58.

intently. Many in this town have stories to tell of the day the

:15:59.:16:01.

waters came taking their homes and businesses. We were flooded out. We

:16:02.:16:09.

were closed ford 13 weeks. As other businesses go, 13 weeks was a short

:16:10.:16:12.

period of time. We pushed hard to get up and running again. The Queen

:16:13.:16:17.

met the owners of a gift shop, they had only opened weeks before the

floodwaters came. We had only opened weeks before the

:16:24.:16:24.

back to the roof and rebuild it. She and the process we went through to

:16:25.:16:29.

do that. She went on to ask about how the business was trading now.

Had the visitors been coming to see Ballater and visit the shop. The

:16:35.:16:39.

homes and businesses were devastated when the River Dee burst its banks,

Storm Frank won't are forgotten here for a while. The community rallied

:16:46.:16:50.

around, everyone lending a hand. As winter approaches, images like this

:16:51.:16:53.

will be playing on the mind of some in this community. Where the Queen

:16:54.:16:58.

walked today, braving a chilly autumnal wind, was under several

town's golf course. It's been a long road back for them, too. We had a

:17:14.:17:21.

Task Force put together quickly from the members. They appeared every

morning with barrels, rakes, everything, chainsaws and set about

council who played their part in protecting property and, more

:17:40.:17:45.

importantly, lives. Elected residents of Ballater will be hoping

:17:46.:17:52.

Christmas is quieter this year. Ballater was one of a number of

:17:53.:17:56.

communities across Scotland that found themselves flooded out at the

:17:57.:17:58.

turn of the year. We are being warned to expect more weather like

:17:59.:18:04.

that in the years ahead. A Committee on Climate Change today called on

:18:05.:18:07.

the Scottish Government to urgently review how well prepared the country

:18:08.:18:10.

is for extreme weather. The Government's response is that it has

:18:11.:18:19.

ambitions plans in place to ensure Scotland is protected from flooding

:18:20.:18:21.

in the years ahead. Thank you very much.

from across the country. Fears have been expressed

about the future of the Highland's main development agency,

:19:35.:19:37.

Highlands and Islands Enterprise. There's speculation

:19:38.:19:38.

the organisation's role is to be reviewed and that it could be merged

:19:39.:19:40.

with Scottish Enterprise It's a bad idea. I don't think

:19:41.:19:46.

centralisation works in every situation. We have fought for local

:19:47.:19:50.

jobs and initiatives. I think it would be a mistake going back having

The Celtic manager, Brendan Rodgers, has revealed that Craig Gordon

:23:27.:23:28.

will start in goal in tomorrow night's Champions League qualifier

:23:29.:23:31.

Celtic will be determined to put on a better show after their 7-0

:23:32.:23:35.

defeat away to Barcelona in the first Group game.

:23:36.:23:37.

Here's our senior football reporter, Chris McLaughlin.

:23:38.:23:44.

The they day before a huge game and a manager with a lottenen os had

yous mind. No goal keeping dilemma though. This goal for Kilmarnock at

:23:52.:23:55.

the weekend did little to damage Celtic, who scored six in reply. It

:23:56.:24:01.

injured the manager's number one. He isn't 100% obviously after the

:24:02.:24:05.

weekend. He has trained and worked with the team. There is no need for

:24:06.:24:10.

us to take any risk in a game like here when I've got an outstanding

:24:11.:24:13.

goalkeeper beside him. Craig will play. He will play in a side looking

:24:14.:24:19.

to make amends for a 7-0 thrashing in Spain two weeks ago. We have to

:24:20.:24:23.

get that out of mind early doors. Believe that we are good enough to

:24:24.:24:26.

be in the competition. Good enough to get something at home, especially

:24:27.:24:31.

in front of those fans when they are supporting us. It's incredible, to

:24:32.:24:35.

be perfectly honest, in Champions League nights. It's where this club

:24:36.:24:39.

deserves to be. It's where their opponents believe they deserve to

:24:40.:24:44.

be, Manchester City's multi pound players have their sights on winning

:24:45.:24:49.

the competition. The opposing side would choose to trien here, but

:24:50.:24:52.

Manchester City trained at home this morning. It's a squad bursting with

:24:53.:24:58.

confidence because, if they win here tomorrow evening, they set a club

:24:59.:25:03.

record of 11 con sective wins at the start of a season. For Celtic,

:25:04.:25:08.

Barcelona was tough, but in the Champions League they huge matches

:25:09.:25:10.

just keep coming. Let's get the weather forecast now,

:25:11.:25:15.

and Christopher Blanchett is here. Hi. Thank you very much. If I could

:25:16.:25:25.

sum up the weather over the next few days with one ward, the word would

:25:26.:25:30.

be, "windy." Low pressure sweeping eastwards to the north of Scotland,

but it doesn't last because change afoot after that dry start we will

see a spell of wet weather arriving. It's edging in from the south-west

Blustery showers with the winds. A cool feel. Sunshine in the mix too.

:27:17.:27:20.

Very windy. That is the forecast. Thank you very much.

:27:21.:27:25.

Now, a reminder of tonight's main news.

:27:26.:27:27.

Police have charged the Glasgow East MP, Natalie McGarry,

:27:28.:27:29.

The MP stood down from the SNP group at Westminster last year,

:27:30.:27:34.

The company which operates the Alton Towers theme park has been

:27:35.:27:39.

fined ?5 million for last year's roller-coaster crash,

:27:40.:27:41.

which resulted in two young women having legs amputated.

:27:42.:27:47.

I'll be back with the headlines at 8.00pm and the late bulletin just

:27:48.:27:51.

Until then, from everyone on the team - right

:27:52.:27:55.

across the country - have a very good evening.
