the game has claimed he made them up. That's it, goodbye from the BBC

News at 6pm, now on BBC One lets join our

:00:00.:00:08.

The Prime Minister wants Holyrood fully engaged in the Brexit

negotiations but warns they won't be able to veto the final decision.

Scotland that she wants the Scottish Government

:00:55.:01:16.

to be "fully engaged" in the Brexit talks,

:01:17.:01:18.

but has emphasized that ministers in Edinburgh can have no

:01:19.:01:21.

veto over the process. We will hear from all

conference, the Tory leader's been speaking to our Westminster

correspondent, David Porter. One of the consequences of the

:01:31.:01:44.

Brexit vote, a new Prime Minister entering Downing Street with a

:01:45.:01:48.

forthright pledge on the union. The full title of my party is the

:01:49.:01:55.

Conservative and Unionist party, and that word "Unionist" is very

:01:56.:02:00.

important to me. Within days, Theresa May was in Edinburgh

:02:01.:02:04.

visiting the First Minister. As expected, no meeting of minds on

:02:05.:02:07.

politics but an agreement to carry on talking. Now the dust has settled

:02:08.:02:13.

a bit, how will the Prime Minister deal with Brexit and Scotland? Well,

:02:14.:02:19.

the negotiations will be for the United Kingdom to conduct with the

:02:20.:02:23.

European Union. I want to ensure that we hear from all parts of the

:02:24.:02:28.

UK, from the Scottish Government, that we engage with them on the

:02:29.:02:31.

issues that particularly matter to Scotland. But what is crucial is

:02:32.:02:35.

that I'm determined we will make a success of this and really clear

:02:36.:02:39.

that we will make opportunities for the whole of the UK as we leave the

:02:40.:02:44.

European Union. We must grasp those opportunities, but I also want to be

:02:45.:02:47.

a government that works for everyone, not a privileged few. That

:02:48.:02:51.

means ensuring the benefits of economic growth are spread across

:02:52.:02:58.

the UK. There can be no Scottish veto? The United Kingdom will have a

:02:59.:03:02.

position in the negotiations and as the United Kingdom government we

:03:03.:03:04.

will negotiate with the European Union. But we will listen to and

:03:05.:03:08.

take account of the particular concerns of Scotland and other parts

:03:09.:03:12.

of the UK, and we want to ensure crucially that the benefits we are

:03:13.:03:16.

able to achieve from the deal we get with the European Union, from the

:03:17.:03:19.

opportunities that will open up outside the EU in the rest of the

:03:20.:03:24.

world, will be spread across the UK. Of course, it all plays into the

:03:25.:03:29.

wider Scottish independence debate. On this, the Prime Minister is

:03:30.:03:34.

resolute. There are two questions about a second referendum in

:03:35.:03:38.

Scotland. One, could there be? That is a process issue. I think the real

:03:39.:03:43.

question is should there be a second referendum in Scotland? My answer is

:03:44.:03:47.

no. I continue to believe Scotland is better off as part of the United

:03:48.:03:52.

Kingdom. I think that is important. People talk about what is going to

:03:53.:03:55.

happen in terms of leaving the European Union for Scotland's trade

:03:56.:04:01.

with Europe, but actually their trade with the rest of the UK, the

:04:02.:04:05.

economic importance of Scotland being part of the UK far overwhelms

:04:06.:04:11.

that. If Nicola Sturgeon came to you and said, I am planning to hold a

:04:12.:04:17.

second referendum. Would you say to Westminster, tell them they can't do

:04:18.:04:22.

it? I think there should not be a second referendum in Scotland. I

:04:23.:04:25.

continue to believe Scotland is better off as part of the United

:04:26.:04:29.

Kingdom, and I believe passionately in the strong union there has been

:04:30.:04:33.

between Scotland and the rest of the United Kingdom for so long. Our

:04:34.:04:38.

history, the economic ties that we have, I want Scotland to remain part

:04:39.:04:44.

of the UK. Brexit is the dominant issue in the Prime Minister's in

:04:45.:04:45.

tray. As the Conservative and issue in the Prime Minister's in

:04:46.:04:51.

Unionist party, to give it its full title, gathers for its conference in

:04:52.:04:54.

Birmingham, how it impacts on Scotland is also sure to be a major

:04:55.:04:55.

talking point. And a reminder that we'll hear

:04:56.:05:00.

from all the party leaders Brian, we heard that

:05:01.:05:03.

line about consulting Scotland again there,

:05:04.:05:10.

but what does it actually amount to? Politics is on pause to an extent

:05:11.:05:22.

while we try to get the details of what wrecks it actually means beyond

:05:23.:05:27.

simply saying that Brexit means Brexit. It was perhaps

:05:28.:05:31.

understandable that the tenor of the Prime Minister's remarks again, to

:05:32.:05:34.

some degree said nothing in particular but saying it awfully

:05:35.:05:39.

well. What she did say was with regard to the status of the Scottish

:05:40.:05:44.

Government in the negotiations. They will have an active, participate to

:05:45.:05:48.

reroll in drawing up the terms of the UK's engagement with the

:05:49.:05:51.

European Union. They will have an active role in advancing such issues

:05:52.:05:55.

as the single market and freedom of movement. But Theresa May is making

:05:56.:05:58.

clear that from her perspective they will be consulted with, engaged

:05:59.:06:03.

with, but that it is the UK Government which will go shape with

:06:04.:06:07.

the EU on the UK's departure as a whole from the EU. Down the line,

:06:08.:06:12.

that could present the Scottish Government with a conundrum. Do they

:06:13.:06:18.

cry foul and thereby call a second independence referendum, or do they

:06:19.:06:21.

opt for caution and bank what they can obtain from this process of the

:06:22.:06:22.

UK's involvement in Brexit? A Scottish boxer is in a critical

:06:23.:06:27.

condition in hospital this evening, after being injured

:06:28.:06:30.

in a fight in Glasgow. Mike Towell was stretchered

:06:31.:06:32.

from the ring during The event was being broadcast live

:06:33.:06:33.

on television at the time. The fight was against Dale Evans in

:06:34.:06:56.

Glasgow last night. The Dundee boxer was undefeated going into the fight,

:06:57.:07:01.

but the 25-year-old was knocked down in the first round and again in the

:07:02.:07:07.

fifth, before the fight was stopped. The event at the hotel was organised

:07:08.:07:12.

by the St Andrews sporting club. They say their thoughts and prayers

:07:13.:07:18.

are with the box and his family. The club director and Mike Towell's

:07:19.:07:21.

manager travelled with him in the ambulance to the hospital and spent

:07:22.:07:27.

the night by his bedside. The event was then suspended. I know he is a

:07:28.:07:31.

good fighter and he can punch like myself. It was either going to be

:07:32.:07:36.

him or me, but nobody ever wants to see someone stretchered out of the

:07:37.:07:40.

ring and I hope he is all right. The referee was also in charge of this

:07:41.:07:45.

British middleweight title fight in March between Chris Eubank Junior

:07:46.:07:48.

and Nick Blackwell, in which Blackwell suffered a bleed in the

:07:49.:07:53.

skull, ending his career. That fight, and about last night, raised

:07:54.:07:57.

questions about the safety of the sport, but it is being defended. The

:07:58.:08:03.

way boxing is run, the medics in the game, the British board of boxing

:08:04.:08:07.

control do a fantastic job, as they do in amateur boxing. I believe

:08:08.:08:13.

boxing is a relatively safe sport. Mike Towell's family remain with him

:08:14.:08:16.

at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, where he is still in critical

:08:17.:08:18.

condition. One of Scotland's highest profile

:08:19.:08:20.

football managers says his time working in England has convinced

:08:21.:08:22.

there is corruption in the game. But Neil Lennon, currently manager

:08:23.:08:25.

of Hibernian says he's not aware of a culture of illicit payments

:08:26.:08:27.

in Scottish football. He was speaking after former

:08:28.:08:30.

Scotland international Eric Black was filmed allegedly offering advice

:08:31.:08:33.

on how to bribe coaching staff Inside this hotel in the south-west

:08:34.:08:51.

of England, the Daily Telegraph covertly filmed Southampton's

:08:52.:08:55.

Assistant manager, Eric Black, talking to an undercover reporter.

:08:56.:08:59.

It alleges he named staff at English clubs who could be paid to pass on

:09:00.:09:03.

information about players to the company the reporter says she

:09:04.:09:04.

represents. It could be there. It is. That will

:09:05.:09:30.

win the cup. Eric Black. Eric Black made his name as a player at

:09:31.:09:34.

Aberdeen. He denies suggesting any football officials should be paid,

:09:35.:09:39.

saying his comment related to a freelance scout and agency might

:09:40.:09:44.

approach. One Scots -based manager says his time as a player and

:09:45.:09:47.

England leaves him in little doubt that corruption is present in being

:09:48.:09:52.

this game. There have been rumours for a long time about high profile

:09:53.:10:00.

people. Sometimes mud sticks. Eric might be completely innocent so I

:10:01.:10:04.

would not want to pass comment on it, but there has been a lot of talk

:10:05.:10:08.

for a long time about what has been going on. But he says he is unaware

:10:09.:10:13.

of a problem in this country. This summer, Kilmarnock sign 17 players.

:10:14.:10:17.

Their manager, who has also worked in England, says that he makes sure

:10:18.:10:23.

deals are properly conducted. I identify a player, speak to him

:10:24.:10:27.

regarding the football side, but leave everything else down to the

:10:28.:10:30.

people above in terms of sorting out transfer fees if a fee is needed,

:10:31.:10:37.

salary, etc, the whole financial package. That is dealt with by other

:10:38.:10:42.

people which makes it easier for me. Wildly in the chef a Investec 's

:10:43.:10:46.

claims made against Eric Black, the BBC understands there have been no

:10:47.:10:50.

complaints made to the Scottish Football Association about managers

:10:51.:10:54.

or coaches breaching laws in this country.

:10:55.:10:56.

The Scottish Government has written to the Home Secretary,

:10:57.:10:58.

urging her to sign protocols to allow British police to remain

:10:59.:11:01.

part of the European crime-fighting agency, Europol.

:11:02.:11:02.

The Justice Secretary says if the end-of-year deadline isn't

:11:03.:11:04.

met, it could seriously hamper Police Scotland's ability to gather

:11:05.:11:08.

information and intelligence overseas.

:11:09.:11:12.

Amber Rudd says she's looking to continue some

:11:13.:11:14.

How long should an ambulance take to arrive after a 999 call?

:11:15.:11:22.

The answer for the most serious cases is under eight minutes.

:11:23.:11:25.

But the Scottish Ambulance Service is only making that target 67%

:11:26.:11:29.

It's now proposing to change the way calls are prioritised.

:11:30.:11:35.

It says the evidence shows that appropriate

:11:36.:11:37.

treatment is more important than the speed of response.

:11:38.:11:40.

A critical 999 call should mean an emergency response within eight

:11:41.:11:56.

minutes right across the country. The service has been struggling to

:11:57.:12:01.

meet its target, to get to 75% of calls on time. The changes will mean

:12:02.:12:05.

certain call-outs, such as some chest pains or head injuries, will

:12:06.:12:10.

be downgraded. It means crews can have longer to attend. A life or

:12:11.:12:15.

death situation, like someone choking, needs a was bumped as fast

:12:16.:12:20.

as possible. But perhaps someone with chest pain, symptoms of a heart

:12:21.:12:24.

attack, they would still get a blue light ambulance, but in fact a few

:12:25.:12:27.

minutes extra to get the right vehicle to them with the right

:12:28.:12:29.

people on board to take them to hospital so that they can have

:12:30.:12:33.

further care is much more important to get the right vehicle than to

:12:34.:12:36.

have them responded to within a very short period of time. The pilot

:12:37.:12:42.

comes after a full review of clinical data. It has been supported

:12:43.:12:45.

by charities such as the British Heart Foundation. Targets were first

:12:46.:12:52.

set in the 1970s. Back then, it was very much scoop and run, get someone

:12:53.:12:57.

to hospital as soon as possible. But so much has changed. There were no

:12:58.:13:01.

paramedics in the 1970s, but now one is likely to arrive in a car, bike

:13:02.:13:07.

or ambulance. Calls to the Ambulance Service have increased by over 50%

:13:08.:13:11.

in the last eight years. It will be up to the handlers to sift calls and

:13:12.:13:16.

decide the appropriate response. The Ambulance Service say the system

:13:17.:13:19.

will not stop help arriving quickly but is about identifying the right

:13:20.:13:22.

type of response rather than focusing on speed. Targets are only

:13:23.:13:30.

about time of arrival. We are trying to seek a system which improves

:13:31.:13:35.

patient outcomes. This is concentrated on the patient, not on

:13:36.:13:43.

us hitting a time stop button. The new system follows moves in Wales

:13:44.:13:47.

and parts of England. The pilot will start at the end of the year and

:13:48.:13:49.

will be reviewed in 12 months. Work is underway today

to move the damaged oil rig Transocean Winner

:13:55.:13:56.

on to a semi-submersible ship. The 17,000-tonne structure was blown

:13:57.:13:58.

ashore onto the west side Our reporter Angus Macdonald is

:13:59.:14:00.

there for us tonight. The operation started during the

:14:01.:14:18.

night when the rig was moved north of the Hawk heavy-lift ship. The

:14:19.:14:22.

hawk itself was ballasted down until it looks like an abandoned

:14:23.:14:25.

shipwreck, waiting for the Transocean Winner to be floated over

:14:26.:14:30.

and positioned above its submerged deck. But although the wind has been

:14:31.:14:36.

relatively moderate, the seas still had some surprises from the North.

:14:37.:14:41.

This gives you some idea of the size of the operation. The heavy-lift

:14:42.:14:45.

ship is in the foreground and the Transocean Winner is some distance

:14:46.:14:49.

in the background. They have to get it onto the deck, but at the moment

:14:50.:14:53.

the size of the swell is making it difficult. The weather is very

:14:54.:14:57.

changeable but by this time tomorrow it will be clear whether it will go

:14:58.:15:03.

in this weather window, or stay until the next break in the weather.

:15:04.:15:08.

If we find ourselves in the same position tomorrow we will have to

:15:09.:15:11.

make a decision, and that might be to put it back onto the anchors,

:15:12.:15:15.

because we are anticipating bad weather coming through at the

:15:16.:15:17.

beginning of next week and we would have to have it secured by that

:15:18.:15:19.

time. A jury has been told that the man

rounds to stop a vehicle, during an intelligence-led operation

for a festival in Ayrshire. It could soon become impossible

:16:31.:16:44.

for Scottish clubs to reach the Champions League,

:16:45.:16:47.

if proposed reforms go through. That's the view of the chairman of

:16:48.:16:49.

the European Professional Football Lars-Christer Olsson,

:16:50.:16:52.

a former general secretary of Uefa, says plans to change

:16:53.:16:59.

the qualification criteria for European competition

:17:00.:17:00.

will lead to a "closed shop". The Champions League returned to

:17:01.:17:17.

Celtic Park this week after an almost three-year absence. For many

:17:18.:17:20.

supporters such nights are the highlight of the season but for how

:17:21.:17:25.

much longer? European football 's governing body has announced changes

:17:26.:17:29.

which mean the top four weeks, Spain, Germany, England and Italy

:17:30.:17:34.

will lead chav four guaranteed places in the Champions League.

:17:35.:17:37.

Opponents believe it's the first step in the squeezing out clubs in

:17:38.:17:41.

smaller leagues. Do you see a scenario where it becomes almost

:17:42.:17:45.

impossible for clubs like Celtic to compete with the elite and get to

:17:46.:17:50.

these competitions? Yes, definitely one of the results. The other is

:17:51.:17:55.

that it has a tremendous effect also on a domestic level because you are

:17:56.:18:00.

playing for qualification to the international competitions and

:18:01.:18:03.

that's important in every country, big or small. Key to Celtic

:18:04.:18:09.

successful qualification this season was the champions route, a format

:18:10.:18:12.

which ensures the champions of smaller leagues get, in theory, and

:18:13.:18:18.

easier draw. That is safe until 2021 but maybe not beyond. As soon as you

:18:19.:18:22.

remove that access, you might still get prize money and domestic glory

:18:23.:18:27.

of being champions of Scotland but if you're not getting access to

:18:28.:18:30.

Europe then a big part of what it means to be champions of Scotland is

:18:31.:18:36.

removed. Retaining that is vital. My fear is that united and put as much

:18:37.:18:42.

pressure now only way far as we can that we will end up sleepwalking

:18:43.:18:46.

into a closed shop. The danger is that could spell the end of nights

:18:47.:18:50.

like these at Celtic Park or anywhere else in Scotland. There has

:18:51.:18:54.

to be opportunities for clubs like Celtic, one of the great clubs of

:18:55.:18:59.

world football, there has to be an opportunity for them to be in this

:19:00.:19:04.

competition. I think the competition is better for a club like Celtic

:19:05.:19:09.

being in it. Of course you have to earn the right to be there, qualify,

:19:10.:19:14.

but it should not be made almost impossible. The threat of being on

:19:15.:19:18.

the outside looking in at a future version of the Champions League is

:19:19.:19:21.

an ominous prospect but a real one nonetheless.

:19:22.:19:24.

An African waterfall and a species of gazelle are named after him,

:19:25.:19:27.

and his exploits inspired the classic adventure story

:19:28.:19:29.

Thomson led several expeditions to Africa and, as Willie Johnston

:19:30.:19:49.

reports, new links are being forged between the Maasai people

:19:50.:19:51.

From the sun washed plains of tenure to mission shrouded hills, their

:20:03.:20:08.

about the type of grass. He says the cattle here and how they are reared

:20:09.:20:13.

are very different as well. He looks as incongruous as the man whose

him for is his humbleness, he went through the land and avoided

confrontation with anybody, with the community and anyone along the way.

:20:52.:20:57.

His motto, he who goes gently goes safely and he who goes safely goes

:20:58.:21:01.

far in capital is his way of doing things. He did not go blundering in
