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

:00:00.:00:08.

Tonight, on Reporting Scotland, it's confirmed that Mike Towell,

:00:09.:00:10.

the Dundee boxer who died after a bout last week,

:00:11.:00:12.

had complained of headaches during training.

:00:13.:00:15.

Nine days after he went missing in Suffolk, the mother of an RAF

serviceman makes an appeal for help to find him.

:00:20.:00:24.

We would like him to come home. We would like him to come home soon.

:00:25.:00:34.

This is unlike him, he wouldn't do this out of choice.

:00:40.:00:42.

They were two of the biggest names in Scottish football,

:00:43.:00:44.

but what do they think of the national team's chances ahead

:00:45.:00:46.

And we meet up with Emili Sande four years after she put her career

:00:47.:00:51.

on hold after struggling to cope with life in the spotlight.

:00:52.:01:10.

Mike Towell, the Dundee boxer who died after a bout last Friday,

:01:11.:01:16.

complained about headaches in the run up to the fight.

:01:17.:01:19.

It's been confirmed a training session had to be

:01:20.:01:21.

The boxing community say the sport is still relatively safe,

:01:22.:01:26.

but it's led to calls for greater checks, as Rhona McLeod reports.

:01:27.:01:34.

This is the boxer Mike Towell, just one year ago. 11 fights unbeaten

:01:35.:01:46.

commie he was working hard to make his way in the sport to support his

:01:47.:01:54.

young family. But, in the build-up to this, his final fight, all was

:01:55.:02:01.

not well. His girlfriend says he complained of headaches and the

:02:02.:02:06.

owner of the gym, Alex Morrison says he stopped during a sparring

:02:07.:02:10.

session, again because of headaches. Fight fans are looking forward to

:02:11.:02:15.

the WBA title defence of Ricky Burns, but the boxing community is

:02:16.:02:20.

still reeling after the death of one of their own. Cannot put it into

:02:21.:02:27.

words. My heart goes out to his family. Obviously, it is the last

:02:28.:02:31.

thing anybody wanted to happen. You have a fight coming up, you have a

:02:32.:02:37.

medical, they are always checking you. It is a safe sport. Obviously

:02:38.:02:42.

it is just now and again, a tragedy like this will happen. The former

:02:43.:02:48.

world champion, Ricky Hatton, has started a fund for Mike Towell's

:02:49.:02:53.

partner and son. He knows the sport is under scrutiny. The daggers have

:02:54.:02:58.

come out, boxing should be banned. But the authorities have everything

:02:59.:03:04.

in order to make the boxes as safe as they can. It is nobody's fault.

:03:05.:03:12.

We all know what can happen. It is a tragedy. But there must be changes

:03:13.:03:16.

in the sport, according to one veteran boxing journalist. There are

:03:17.:03:20.

medical checks, perhaps they will be stepped up. But so much is also

:03:21.:03:29.

dependent on the individual's honesty. Sports people will tell

:03:30.:03:33.

lies so they don't miss a football match or a boxing match. A lot of it

:03:34.:03:41.

is dependent on their honesty. You can never make this 100% safe, it

:03:42.:03:46.

will never be the case. The very nature of the sport as well, means

:03:47.:03:53.

it can never be 100%. An investigation into the death of Mike

:03:54.:03:58.

Towell continues. His Welsh opponent says he is absolutely heartbroken

:03:59.:04:03.

and a family tried to come to terms with their loss.

:04:04.:04:05.

Nearly 100 tonnes of oil has leaked from a platform west of Shetland.

:04:06.:04:07.

BP says it believes the best solution is to allow the oil

:04:08.:04:10.

from the Clair platform to disperse naturally in the sea,

:04:11.:04:12.

but admits other options are still on the table.

:04:13.:04:14.

Our environment correspondent Kevin Keane is at BP headquarters

:04:15.:04:16.

What more can you tell us about this, Kevin? This happened yesterday

:04:17.:04:28.

morning and it happened at a point called the separator. What tends to

:04:29.:04:35.

happen is oil, gas and water come onto the platform where they are

:04:36.:04:40.

separate. The oil and gas are stored and the clean water is pumped back

:04:41.:04:47.

out into the sea. What appeared to have happened yesterday, some of the

:04:48.:04:52.

oil got mixed in with the water as it was being pumped back out to sea.

:04:53.:05:00.

That went on for almost an hour, according to BP. 95 tonnes of it, as

:05:01.:05:07.

you say, will eat. It is heading away from land at the moment so it

:05:08.:05:14.

is not expected to cause any environmental impact, but it is

:05:15.:05:16.

being monitored and surveillance flights have been going over it. How

:05:17.:05:20.

much is 95 tonnes and how significant is this? Figures from

:05:21.:05:24.

2014 show there are hundreds of much smaller leaks of oil across the UK

:05:25.:05:31.

sector, the total amount of all those leaks in 2014 was just 20

:05:32.:05:38.

tonnes. So this is five times the amount that was accidentally leaked

:05:39.:05:39.

in 2014. Thank you very much. Police searching for an RAF

:05:40.:05:43.

serviceman who disappeared in Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk nine

:05:44.:05:44.

days ago say there's nothing Corrie Mckeague, who's 23,

:05:45.:05:46.

was last seen on CCTV walking alone eating fast food

:05:47.:05:49.

in the early hours of Saturday, Police are now examining a bin

:05:50.:05:50.

lorry, which is believed to have gone along the same route

:05:51.:05:54.

as a signal detected My son has disappeared. Just four

:05:55.:06:02.

words from his mother, Nicola, brutally honest about something the

:06:03.:06:06.

family admits it's a rear. With his brothers by her side, it she

:06:07.:06:11.

appealed for information. There seems to be no evidence to suggest

:06:12.:06:21.

what has happened to Corrie. At 3:20am on Saturday morning he was

:06:22.:06:29.

seen on CCTV, and so far there is no evidence to show where my son has

:06:30.:06:35.

gone. This is where he was seen. Police have released images

:06:36.:06:39.

identical to that of what he was wearing and searching have covered

:06:40.:06:44.

hundreds of roads, river banks and fields. Today, the focus was at

:06:45.:06:52.

Barton Mills by the day 11. Phone tracking picked up Corrie's phone on

:06:53.:06:57.

the morning he disappeared. At the same time, had bin lorry travel

:06:58.:07:01.

between the two locations. The vehicle has been seized and the

:07:02.:07:07.

conference was told a search is underway. Where do you place but in

:07:08.:07:11.

terms of its importance in this enquiry? Difficult to say, different

:07:12.:07:15.

lines of enquiry and the phone is only one. CCTV is important, both in

:07:16.:07:21.

terms of Bury St Edmunds but also Mildenhall and around there. The

:07:22.:07:27.

phone is important, but so is a lot of other lines of enquiry. We have a

:07:28.:07:33.

dedicated team who are focused this investigation. The search teams

:07:34.:07:37.

admit their task is like looking for a needle in a haystack, but they

:07:38.:07:42.

remain determined and methodical. We will use historic data

:07:43.:07:43.

remain determined and methodical. We something like 50,000 historic

:07:44.:07:45.

searches. That information has been collated by people and it gives us

:07:46.:07:51.

best case scenarios. It gives as a starting point. As his mother I

:07:52.:07:58.

could sit here and talk to you about my son and the man he is. But I

:07:59.:08:06.

don't want this to be a story about Corrie and the person he is, it is

:08:07.:08:12.

about finding him. The search teams were joined over the weekend by

:08:13.:08:17.

member of his family. They wanted, they needed to walk by the side of

:08:18.:08:23.

the volunteers. As much as anything, they wanted to say thank you for

:08:24.:08:26.

their dedication. The former Rangers owner Craig Whyte

:08:27.:08:28.

has appeared again at the High Court in connection with his takeover

:08:29.:08:29.

of the Ibrox club in 2011. He's charged with obtaining

:08:30.:08:31.

a controlling stake in Rangers by fraud and of breaching

:08:32.:08:33.

the Companies Act. Mr Whyte entered no plea and is due

:08:34.:08:35.

back in court for a hearing His trial has been provisionally set

for April next year in Glasgow The jury in the trial of a man

:08:39.:08:42.

accused of murdering the waiter Surjit Singh Chhokar nearly 18 years

ago has spent its first day Ronnie Coulter is accused

:08:48.:08:50.

of stabbing Mr Chhokar The jury here at the High Court in

:08:51.:09:08.

Glasgow has been hearing evidence over the course of the last four

:09:09.:09:14.

weeks. Lord Matt Hughes told the juror is, in order to convict Ronnie

:09:15.:09:19.

Coulter, they must be convinced he is the knife and stabbed Mr Chhokar.

:09:20.:09:24.

Before sending the jury out this morning, Lord Matthews told the ten

:09:25.:09:28.

women and four men, they were entitled to return one of three

:09:29.:09:32.

verdicts, guilty, not guilty or not proven. He also said the verdict

:09:33.:09:37.

must be unanimous or by majority. The judge also told the jury there

:09:38.:09:42.

was no time limit on its deliberations. He told them, it is

:09:43.:09:49.

not a case where you want to rush to judgment and I'm sure you will not

:09:50.:09:55.

do that. Ronnie Coulter denies murdering Mr Chhokar on the 14th of

:09:56.:10:02.

November in 1988. He had a special defence blaming his nephew and

:10:03.:10:04.

another man, David McGoldrick. defence blaming his nephew and

:10:05.:10:07.

Ronnie Coulter is on trial for murdering Mr Chhokar for a second

:10:08.:10:11.

time, having previously been acquitted of the alleged murder. The

:10:12.:10:13.

jury will continue deliberating tomorrow.

:10:14.:10:17.

Secondary schools are set to be hit by industrial action by members

:10:18.:10:19.

More than 90% of members of the Scottish Secondary Teachers

:10:20.:10:24.

Association who took part in a ballot said they'd support

:10:25.:10:26.

action short of a strike over their workload.

:10:27.:10:28.

Last week, the largest teachers union, the EIS,

:10:29.:10:31.

called off a work to rule after the Government announced

:10:32.:10:34.

The SSTA says the Government's move is a step in the right direction

:10:35.:10:39.

The Education Secretary, John Swinney said there

:10:40.:10:43.

was "no justification whatsoever" for the action.

:10:44.:10:45.

The Scottish Secretary David Mundell has urged the Scottish and UK

:10:46.:10:47.

governments to avoid confrontation in Brexit talks.

:10:48.:10:54.

suggested the scottish parliament could refuse to back legal changes.

:10:55.:11:09.

Nick Eardley is at Tory conference in Birmingham.

:11:10.:11:12.

Nick this continues a war of words over the weekend.

:11:13.:11:16.

Yes, the Prime Minister didn't mince her words yesterday when she said

:11:17.:11:23.

there could be no opt out from Brexit. Theresa May thinks the whole

:11:24.:11:29.

of the UK is leaving. She said she would fight what she calls divisive

:11:30.:11:33.

nationalists. But the most immediate row that has broken out is over

:11:34.:11:37.

plans to convert EU law into domestic law and then give the UK

:11:38.:11:44.

Parliament the ability to choose what it wants to get rid of.

:11:45.:11:49.

Normally when Westminster wants to legislate in an area covered by

:11:50.:11:52.

devolution, in needs the permission of the Scottish parliament. Mike

:11:53.:11:56.

Russell, the man in charge of Brexit talks for the Scottish Government,

:11:57.:12:01.

things that will be the case in this situation also. He suggested that

:12:02.:12:04.

because of the majority of MSPs oppose leaving the EU, it could be

:12:05.:12:11.

hard to get it through. But the UK Government is convinced it needs

:12:12.:12:17.

that consent as yet? Earlier I spoke to David Mundell.

:12:18.:12:18.

Ultimately the Scottish parliament doesn't have a veto over the UK

:12:19.:12:25.

leaving the EU. Of course they will have a say and important debates,

:12:26.:12:31.

but they will not have a veto on the process. I want them to be engaged

:12:32.:12:40.

and and that is why I'm going to appear before the Scottish

:12:41.:12:44.

Parliament and why David Davis is going to do that as well. We want to

:12:45.:12:51.

proceed on the basis of partnership and we are looking to work together,

:12:52.:12:55.

not looking for confrontation or unnecessary arguments

:12:56.:12:57.

But there are differences of opinion. The UK Government have said

:12:58.:13:05.

the next priority is to bring down immigration. The Scottish Government

:13:06.:13:09.

has said its main concern is retaining membership of the single

:13:10.:13:13.

market. David Mundell says he wants a constructive relationship moving

:13:14.:13:16.

forward. I think at least some of that will be down to both sides

:13:17.:13:22.

giving and taking and some compromise.

:13:23.:13:23.

You're watching BBC Reporting Scotland.

Confirmation that the boxer, Mike Towel, who died after a bout,

:13:25.:13:27.

had complained of headaches during training.

:13:28.:13:29.

And still to come - on the shortlist for Britain's most

:13:30.:13:30.

prestigious annual architecture award, this college campus

:13:31.:13:33.

is the only Scottish building in the running.

:13:34.:13:39.

Eczema affects around 8 million people in the UK.

:13:40.:13:42.

The intense itching and burning skin can be hugely distressing

:13:43.:13:44.

Scientists at Edinburgh University have been testing ways

:13:45.:13:50.

in which the body's own natural defences might be used to create

:13:51.:13:53.

There are only so many photographic filters you can use to cover the red

:13:54.:14:13.

marks up on your face. I will do it around my eyes and my cheeks. As you

:14:14.:14:23.

can see from the creams I had to apply them regularly, to hopefully

:14:24.:14:27.

cover up the marks. Liam has lived with eczema all his life, but the

:14:28.:14:32.

symptoms are not just physical. Growing up as a teenager, going

:14:33.:14:39.

through a lot of change as it is. If you are faced with problems with

:14:40.:14:46.

your skin on top of that, it is another problem you have to deal

:14:47.:14:51.

with. When skin is damage, people usually produce a compound to heal

:14:52.:14:56.

the broken cells. It doesn't seem to happen with eczema. At Edinburgh

:14:57.:14:59.

University, scientists have been working on a natural defence. It is

:15:00.:15:03.

a culture broth that allows these artificial skin systems to grow in

:15:04.:15:09.

the lab. Bay have instructed the cells to produce this substance

:15:10.:15:12.

lacking in people with eczema. They have been able to show this

:15:13.:15:17.

defensive thing not only kills bacteria, but strengthens the skin

:15:18.:15:20.

barrier that fights of other infections. For many people it is a

:15:21.:15:24.

lifelong treatment and that is a mixture of moisturisers and steroid

:15:25.:15:27.

creams. Steroid creams can become less effective as you get older, but

:15:28.:15:32.

also cause with repeated use. This can give us an insight into how you

:15:33.:15:40.

approach and treat it. It. It could be trying to instruct the eczema

:15:41.:15:46.

skin to try and make this defensive thing. Or it could be making the

:15:47.:15:52.

defensive to make a cream or ointment. The challenge is to get it

:15:53.:16:00.

out of the lab but that could be ten to 15 years away. But the sufferers

:16:01.:16:06.

lightly on, it would been freedom from this distressing condition.

:16:07.:16:11.

North Lanarkshire Council has suspended three members of staff

:16:12.:16:13.

amid an ongoing investigation into corruption claims.

:16:14.:16:15.

The investigation began in April after an anonymous letter made

:16:16.:16:19.

There are calls for a reform to the system that allows council

:16:20.:16:23.

chief executives to receive extra payouts for acting as returning

:16:24.:16:26.

These have amounted to ?1 million in the past two years.

:16:27.:16:29.

The existing arrangements are to be scrutinised by a commitee of MSPs.

:16:30.:16:32.

The Electoral Reform Society will be giving evidence.

:16:33.:16:39.

We are very pleased the committee is looking at this, because the formula

:16:40.:16:45.

has changed since it was last set up, it is time it was like that.

:16:46.:16:49.

A memorial service for families affected by the baby ashes scandal

:16:50.:16:52.

at Aberdeen's Hazlehead Crematorium is to be held next month.

:16:53.:16:54.

Baby and adult ashes were mixed together and given back

:16:55.:16:57.

to relatives of the adult, while the parents of infants

:16:58.:16:59.

The non-denominational service will take place

:17:00.:17:02.

The RSPB is trying to raise almost ?300,000 in a month to buy land

:17:03.:17:11.

to expand an important bird reserve on the Solway Firth.

:17:12.:17:18.

Mersehead is the winter home of more than 10,000 barnacle geese.

:17:19.:17:21.

Land has become available adjacent to the existing reserve

:17:22.:17:23.

but the charity has only until the end of the the month

:17:24.:17:26.

That will join us up, creating a lovely wildlife corridor for the

:17:27.:17:39.

benefit of not just the geese but other species we manage four,

:17:40.:17:44.

breeding waders like lapwing, and other non-avian species, the

:17:45.:17:47.

natterjack toad as well. On Saturday, Scotland play Lithuania

:17:48.:17:51.

in their second qualifying match for the 2018 World Cup

:17:52.:17:54.

finals in Russia. Despite winning their opening

:17:55.:17:56.

match against Malta 5-1, the former Scotland player

:17:57.:17:57.

Kenny Dalglish says he'd be happy if the team win this weekend's game

:17:58.:18:00.

by a fluke or an own goal. They were the heroes of EST in a

:18:01.:18:21.

Scotland jersey, now they display the name of the new sponsors of the

:18:22.:18:26.

main stand at Hampden park. They are just as keen to see Scotland succeed

:18:27.:18:30.

at the weekend against Lithuania. just as keen to see Scotland succeed

:18:31.:18:34.

They have been here a couple of times in recent years, they are

:18:35.:18:39.

strong, well-organised, maybe a little bit more defensive than what

:18:40.:18:43.

you would like, but we will try to break them down. At the end of the

:18:44.:18:50.

year, be patient, if we get a fluke, and own goal that gets us through,

:18:51.:18:54.

fine, well done. After beating Malta in the first round of games,

:18:55.:18:59.

Scotland are top of the group but there are another nine matches in

:19:00.:19:04.

the qualifying campaign. England are the favourites to qualify

:19:05.:19:08.

automatically. Archie Gemmill scored one of the greatest goals ever seen

:19:09.:19:11.

in the World Cup finals in 1978 against Holland. And despite

:19:12.:19:22.

England's change of manager following the departure of Sam

:19:23.:19:25.

Allardyce and a cloud of corruption allegations, he says it might not be

:19:26.:19:31.

to their detriment. I think personally it will make England

:19:32.:19:34.

stronger, but I think Scotland should look at it as a group minus

:19:35.:19:42.

England. The two games against England are going to be absolutely

:19:43.:19:46.

massive, so if they can win that group minus England, they are going

:19:47.:19:51.

to be in a play-off for the World Cup. The Hampden Park facade debates

:19:52.:19:57.

the Scotland greats of the past, but if the present team enjoy success,

:19:58.:20:01.

it may be their faces on view in the future.

:20:02.:20:03.

Aberdeenshire singer-songwriter Emeli Sande

:20:04.:20:04.

is back in the limelight after a break of almost four years.

:20:05.:20:07.

The pop star is playing a series of intimate gigs

:20:08.:20:09.

ahead of her second album being released.

:20:10.:20:12.

The 29-year-old says she's determined to take things

:20:13.:20:14.

a little easier after her meteoric rise took its toll.

:20:15.:20:16.

Back on home turf and back in the spotlight, the last few years have

:20:17.:20:31.

been an emotional roller-coaster for the multi-million selling artist. A

:20:32.:20:37.

new single is a nod to that. It just feels like a big emotional

:20:38.:20:40.

explosion, it felt like the first time I wasn't trying to like censor

:20:41.:20:44.

anything, I just let it all out, this is how I am feeling. This

:20:45.:20:50.

intimate stage is a long way from the global one that she dominated

:20:51.:20:55.

four years ago. And the winner is... Emeli Sande! Awards galore,

:20:56.:21:04.

bestselling debut album, and performing for President Obama. A

:21:05.:21:07.

little bit overwhelmed, to be honest, especially when it was going

:21:08.:21:12.

on, I wasn't taking in every moment and really reflecting on the days.

:21:13.:21:17.

When I had time off and looked back at old photos, you know, I felt

:21:18.:21:22.

proud of not just myself but the whole team around me, because we

:21:23.:21:25.

were really on a journey together from performing here 15 years ago to

:21:26.:21:32.

performing for Obama. The fame came at a price. There were definitely

:21:33.:21:38.

points where I did feel very tired, and things were going to fast. This

:21:39.:21:43.

time around, I want to make sure I have put aside personal time and do

:21:44.:21:48.

not... Like take it seriously, you know? This time it is important for

:21:49.:21:53.

me, if I have a day off, don't go into the studio, just enjoy that

:21:54.:21:58.

peace and time to reflect. But tonight is a homecoming for Emeli

:21:59.:22:03.

Sande, with family, friends and fans, a fresh beginning, a new

:22:04.:22:05.

version of events. Six buildings are in the running

:22:06.:22:09.

for Britain's most prestigious annual architecture award -

:22:10.:22:12.

the Riba Stirling Prize. This year, an art gallery,

:22:13.:22:14.

a library, a housing estate, have made the shortlist

:22:15.:22:17.

for the prize. The only building in Scotland

:22:18.:22:22.

on the shortlist is the Riverside campus

:22:23.:22:24.

of the City of Glasgow College. The overarching brief

:22:25.:22:26.

was to create a new community, a super campus, drawing together

:22:27.:22:43.

three different colleges Our brief was to create

:22:44.:22:45.

a new single campus, It was very important

:22:46.:22:50.

that the architects understood how to work from a classroom level right

:22:51.:22:56.

through to a specialist workshop, right through to the inspiring

:22:57.:23:01.

open spaces in the grand atrium. There are very few buildings that

:23:02.:23:08.

properly engage with the Clyde. This location for the maritime

:23:09.:23:10.

college and school of engineering was a gift to the project,

:23:11.:23:13.

where we could really engage the building with the Clyde

:23:14.:23:15.

and through that with the city. There's an amazing series

:23:16.:23:35.

of classrooms, some general, to study shipping-chart work,

:23:36.:23:37.

some specialist, where they can actually get hands-on

:23:38.:23:39.

experience in tying knots Some are high-technology classrooms,

:23:40.:23:41.

that probably are five They can actually have a simulation

:23:42.:23:44.

of the bridge of a supertanker It is an almost identical layout,

:23:45.:23:47.

instruments and screens to what the ship's captain

:23:48.:23:50.

and engineer would see. The facilities link up,

:23:51.:23:54.

so you can have us on the simulator as well as having

:23:55.:23:57.

the engine room workshop, being able to call down

:23:58.:24:01.

as if on a ship. Some six floors beneath,

:24:02.:24:06.

are actually a large ship's working engine,

:24:07.:24:08.

which we bought from the industry The engineers are trained,

:24:09.:24:11.

not only to plan issues but to repair and maintain

:24:12.:24:18.

the working ship's engine. We wanted to create a building

:24:19.:24:25.

with a civic presence, we have an embossed white concrete

:24:26.:24:27.

base, on the riverside walkway, and a very simple curtain

:24:28.:24:30.

walling facade above. These modular facades

:24:31.:24:36.

were specifically redolant of 19th century Victorian facades in

:24:37.:24:39.

a lot of buildings in Glasgow. The staff team can be truly proud

:24:40.:24:51.

of a cohesive project. It proves that with a brilliant

:24:52.:24:54.

client, brilliant architect, you can achieve a unique,

:24:55.:24:56.

iconic and world-class building. You can see all our films

:24:57.:25:06.

of the shortlisted buildings now and you can also vote

:25:07.:25:09.

for your favourite one there. Let's take a look at what the

:25:10.:25:21.

weather has in store. I am bringing you news, it has been

:25:22.:25:27.

a beautiful day across the country, there is a Weather Watchers's

:25:28.:25:34.

picture of the sky, very settled for the week ahead, and we can take a

:25:35.:25:38.

look at the pressure charts to see why. We have an expansive area of

:25:39.:25:46.

high pressure that looks like staying with us through the week,

:25:47.:25:51.

pushing any weather systems further out into the Atlantic, so good news

:25:52.:25:57.

for us and for autumn. A dry evening and night, some clear spells

:25:58.:26:01.

initially, more cloud towards the far West, cloud tending to drifting

:26:02.:26:04.

across eastern coastal areas tonight as well. Occasionally strong winds

:26:05.:26:11.

in the West, like inland, temperatures were covering to about

:26:12.:26:15.

nine Celsius. A fine start to the day tomorrow, cloudier initially

:26:16.:26:18.

across eastern areas, the cloud thinning and breaking, so we're

:26:19.:26:23.

looking at a beautiful autumn day once again. No mist and fog like

:26:24.:26:28.

today, am glad to say. Temperatures rising to a respectable 15-16dC, the

:26:29.:26:35.

best sunshine in the West, 17 degrees are towards Glasgow, the

:26:36.:26:38.

West Highlands, over the Western Isles looking pretty good,

:26:39.:26:41.

brightening up here, cloud coming and going over Shetland, a strong

:26:42.:26:47.

south-westerly wind, strong winds in coastal areas throughout the day.

:26:48.:26:51.

That bit of cloud coming and going towards eastern coastal areas,

:26:52.:26:55.

towards the Angus coast, the East Lothian coast, still pretty

:26:56.:27:00.

pleasant, right sunshine, turning hazy. More of the same into the

:27:01.:27:04.

evening, and it stays dry into the overnight period as well. Actually,

:27:05.:27:09.

that things are looking for Wednesday too, and other dry day,

:27:10.:27:13.

cloud initially, thinning and breaking through the day, the best

:27:14.:27:17.

sunshine in the West, quite a breezy day, on Thursday we will see

:27:18.:27:21.

brighter skies in the East, but similar to tomorrow.

:27:22.:27:25.

A reminder of the main news, the British economy is in for a

:27:26.:27:30.

roller-coaster ride as the UK and negotiate its exit from the European

:27:31.:27:33.

Union according to the Chancellor, Philip Hammond, speaking to the

:27:34.:27:37.

Conservative Party conference. That is Reporting Scotland, I am

:27:38.:27:44.
