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

:00:00.:00:00.

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

:00:00.:00:00.

A radical extension of the use of electronic tags for offenders

:00:07.:00:10.

Road accidents are the biggest killer of young

:00:11.:00:14.

to warn teenagers to belt up and slow down.

:00:15.:00:22.

Can we learn from how Swedish football clubs cut fan violence

:00:23.:00:25.

and improved relations with the police?

:00:26.:00:30.

Former Scotland captain Barry Ferguson talks to us

:00:31.:00:32.

about boozegate and the shame that kept him away from Hampden.

:00:33.:00:42.

was a disgrace, I was embarrassing. Because it ended my career.

:00:43.:00:48.

Also on the programme: Not seeing the wood for the trees -

:00:49.:00:50.

the 100-foot specimens in the Queen's back garden

:00:51.:00:53.

The Scottish Government is planning a radical extension of the ways

:00:54.:01:11.

electronic tags can be used on offenders.

:01:12.:01:15.

Sobriety tags, GPS tracking and tagging will be used

:01:16.:01:18.

as an alternative to remand for the first time north

:01:19.:01:20.

Our political correspondent Lucy Adams has this report.

:01:21.:01:32.

Technology to replace iron bars. I volunteer to try it out. It means

:01:33.:01:42.

offenders can stay at home rather than behind bars. Electronic

:01:43.:01:46.

monitoring has been used in Scotland for almost 15 years, mainly as a

:01:47.:01:52.

form of house arrest. Now it is fitted, that's when we would

:01:53.:01:56.

normally walk around the premises. In future, these could be used as an

:01:57.:02:00.

alternative to remand and for those who offend under the influence of

:02:01.:02:05.

alcohol, and for the first time in Scotland it could be used to monitor

:02:06.:02:09.

the movements of offenders using GPS technology. This is a typical screen

:02:10.:02:16.

we would see for a person that has been GPS tracked. There is more than

:02:17.:02:23.

1000 people currently tagged in Scotland. GPS says in future the

:02:24.:02:26.

numbers could be limitless. They warned there are still blackspots in

:02:27.:02:33.

reception for GPS and tracking but said overall it is effective. It is

:02:34.:02:39.

not a soft option, it is a restriction placed not only on

:02:40.:02:43.

offenders but also the families. Sobriety tags will be able to pick

:02:44.:02:48.

up on tiny traces of drink in people's sweat for those who

:02:49.:02:53.

reoffend when drunk. We spoke to one offender who has been monitored

:02:54.:02:57.

three times by staff in this centre. He says it was life changing. When I

:02:58.:03:04.

was in prison, I was embarrassed and ashamed, I didn't want my children

:03:05.:03:07.

to visit me in a place like that because every dad is Superman to

:03:08.:03:14.

their children so they don't want to be exposed as having any weaknesses.

:03:15.:03:19.

I was ashamed to be in prison and to have done that my family, so having

:03:20.:03:24.

the opportunity to be out meant the world to me. It's all part of a

:03:25.:03:28.

wider government review on penal policy. The objective is to be about

:03:29.:03:36.

thinking about the outcome we are trying to achieve. If it is an

:03:37.:03:39.

individual where we want to monitor and restrict where they are at

:03:40.:03:43.

particular given times, GPS tagging could be the most effective way to

:03:44.:03:49.

do that alongside other measures. We are interested in looking at how we

:03:50.:03:52.

can use electronic monitoring more but we also have to be very careful.

:03:53.:03:58.

We have seen the SNP get soft on issues of justice, and whilst there

:03:59.:04:02.

is a role to play we have got to make sure victims don't feel

:04:03.:04:05.

forgotten. For the Scottish Government now, the job will be

:04:06.:04:09.

persuading judges monitoring is more effective than prison.

:04:10.:04:13.

Police in Suffolk searching for a missing airman from Fife say

:04:14.:04:15.

they still haven't found his phone after checking the contents

:04:16.:04:18.

Detectives believed his handset may have been lost or discarded

:04:19.:04:21.

Corrie McKeague, who's from Dunfermline, went missing ten

:04:22.:04:25.

days ago after a night out in Bury St Edmonds.

:04:26.:04:27.

There has already been huge publicity about the disappearance of

:04:28.:04:44.

Corrie, who went out ten days ago on a Friday night, a few beers, into

:04:45.:04:49.

the early hours of Saturday, last seen on CCTV, after that nothing.

:04:50.:04:54.

Police trapped his mobile phone from Bury St Edmunds to this area about

:04:55.:05:00.

12 miles away. They tracked by using massed in the area. The theory is it

:05:01.:05:05.

could have been lost or discarded, mixed in with rubbish, and got into

:05:06.:05:14.

the back of the bin lorry. Police seized that vehicle and found there

:05:15.:05:24.

is no phone. It is a Nokia Lumea 345. They say they are going through

:05:25.:05:28.

hours of fresh CCTV footage. They are hoping for a fresh glimpse of

:05:29.:05:30.

Corrie, and maybe a fresh clue. An MSP is calling for a fatal

:05:31.:05:36.

accident inquiry to be held into the death of the Dundee boxer

:05:37.:05:39.

Mike Towell, who died on Friday, after being knocked out in a fight

:05:40.:05:42.

the previous evening. The 25-year-old had been

:05:43.:05:44.

in a bout with Dale Evans The Conservative MSP Brian Whittle

:05:45.:05:46.

says it would be "silly" to ban boxing but there needs to be a full

:05:47.:05:51.

investigation to establish if Mr Towell had a brain injury

:05:52.:05:53.

before stepping into the ring. In this particular instance, my

:05:54.:06:07.

concern would be around if the step has been missed because we

:06:08.:06:10.

understand he was having headaches beforehand, and if that is the case,

:06:11.:06:17.

why was that missed? The steps that should not be there. So it is

:06:18.:06:20.

incumbent on this board to make sure every step has been taken, and

:06:21.:06:23.

lessons have to be learned. BBC Scotland has obtained the first

:06:24.:06:25.

exclusive pictures of an oil leak Around 95 tonnes of oil leaked

:06:26.:06:28.

from the Clair field on Sunday, BP says three surveillance flights

:06:29.:06:32.

flew over the slick today and it The company says it believes

:06:33.:06:36.

the environmental impact of the spill is likely

:06:37.:06:40.

to be minimal. A woman who suffered life-changing

from her experience. friend passed his test on the

:07:02.:07:17.

Monday, this was Thursday night, we went for a drive, had a laugh and

:07:18.:07:23.

listened to music. We had a chance to show off. We came up to the

:07:24.:07:27.

corner to quickly and rolled into the farmer's field and I don't

:07:28.:07:32.

remember much after that. I was 16 and I didn't think this would happen

:07:33.:07:36.

to me. Hopefully they will look at me and think this can happen to me,

:07:37.:07:42.

it is real life, not the movies. One can have silly mistake and it can

:07:43.:07:46.

lead to something devastating and life changing. Demonstrating safety

:07:47.:07:54.

to those about to drive on our roads. Young drivers up to 25 make

:07:55.:08:08.

up for 10% of drivers in Scotland and 20% of crashes, it is a

:08:09.:08:11.

disproportionate amount so we need to do engagement with them to make

:08:12.:08:14.

sure they are where they are vulnerable and need to work on their

:08:15.:08:18.

experience. This has been designed to show what a crash might feel

:08:19.:08:27.

like. That was a really nasty jolt and it was only six miles per hour.

:08:28.:08:32.

I'm learning to drive so this makes me more aware of my situation and

:08:33.:08:37.

make sure I'm safe. I don't think it will put off anyone from driving,

:08:38.:08:42.

but I think it will make everyone more cautious about it. If you're

:08:43.:08:49.

going faster, what would it be like? Because that was scary. One person

:08:50.:08:55.

is killed every week on our roads, campaigners want people to belt up,

:08:56.:08:59.

slow down, and not use mobile phones at the wheel.

:09:00.:09:01.

Senior Tories have tonight turned their fire on the SNP,

:09:02.:09:03.

accusing the First Minister and her party of using Brexit

:09:04.:09:08.

as a lever to try and bring about independence.

:09:09.:09:12.

The prospect of a second referendum has been described as a Sword

:09:13.:09:15.

of Damocles hanging over the Scottish economy.

:09:16.:09:17.

Here's our political correspondent, David Porter.

:09:18.:09:22.

Separate but inextricably linked, since that vote in June Brexit and

:09:23.:09:30.

Scottish independence, issues both vying for attention and causing

:09:31.:09:39.

confusion. We will make breakfast... Brexit a success. From Scotland, no

:09:40.:09:45.

such verbal pitfalls but strong rhetoric nevertheless on how Brexit

:09:46.:09:51.

is being portrayed. Using it as an excuse to threaten a second

:09:52.:09:54.

independence referendum, that's not what the people of Scotland want, it

:09:55.:10:00.

is a sort of Damocles, the single biggest threat to Scotland's

:10:01.:10:06.

economy. And a very direct message to the Government. We will negotiate

:10:07.:10:13.

as United Kingdom, leave as the United Kingdom, and face the future

:10:14.:10:19.

together as the United Kingdom. Elsewhere at the conference, time

:10:20.:10:28.

for the Conservative leader to meet the party faithful. Most of the

:10:29.:10:36.

stuff I got was, you are from who? They liked that, but again the issue

:10:37.:10:40.

of Brexit, and criticism of the First Minister. It becomes the post

:10:41.:10:48.

of First Minister, the way she has tried to exploit the vote to get

:10:49.:10:51.

independence back on the table, I think even she has realised she went

:10:52.:10:56.

too far. The First Minister will take issue with that and probably

:10:57.:11:04.

this as well. Who would we like to see Ruth in Theresa May's cabinet?

:11:05.:11:08.

Look at that, will you be disappointing these people? I have a

:11:09.:11:15.

job to do in Holyrood. So she doesn't want to be in Theresa May's

:11:16.:11:20.

cabinet but tomorrow Ruth Davidson will share a platform with the Prime

:11:21.:11:21.

Minister. You're watching BBC

:11:22.:11:22.

Reporting Scotland. The Scottish Government is planning

:11:23.:11:25.

a radical extension of the ways electronic tags can be

:11:26.:11:30.

used on offenders. Not seeing the wood for the trees -

project help ease tensions between supporters and

the authorities in Scotland? the Scottish Cup final,

:11:55.:12:02.

have led to calls for clubs to be There's also an ongoing debate over

:12:03.:12:05.

the effectiveness of recent legislation covering

:12:06.:12:08.

behaviour at matches. Alasdair Lamont's been

:12:09.:12:14.

to Malmo to find out Malmo, one of the biggest and most

:12:15.:12:32.

successful clubs in Sweden, but they have had issues with violence from

:12:33.:12:37.

fans. The football authorities always had a view that you could

:12:38.:12:42.

fans. The football authorities punish, and the same when you were

:12:43.:12:46.

talking to the police for example, so there was a growing conflict

:12:47.:12:53.

between big fan groups and the authorities. Four years ago, the

:12:54.:13:00.

stand-up for football project began in Sweden, since then attendances

:13:01.:13:03.

are up and football related crime and violence is down, so what

:13:04.:13:08.

changes have been made to make the football experience better for the

:13:09.:13:11.

Swedish supporters? Employing this month and others like him is partly

:13:12.:13:17.

responsible for the change. My duty is to be a bridge for the supporters

:13:18.:13:22.

to the club and the club to the supporters. If there is an issue

:13:23.:13:26.

with the police and they want to talk to the supporters, the police

:13:27.:13:31.

can talk to me and I can explain to them. We can understand each other

:13:32.:13:38.

and maybe that lowers the risk for conflict. They deal with designated

:13:39.:13:45.

full-time support the police, such direct lines of communication appear

:13:46.:13:50.

to benefit the authorities too. Recently we have the problem is that

:13:51.:13:54.

supporters from the stands are throwing bottles onto the pitch, and

:13:55.:13:58.

for this game the supporters themselves had said that nobody can

:13:59.:14:02.

do that. If somebody does this, we will take them out from the crowd so

:14:03.:14:05.

do that. If somebody does this, we it is perfect. That is what we call

:14:06.:14:09.

self policing and we hope for more and more. The issues at Swedish

:14:10.:14:16.

football may be different from those in Scotland, and no one here

:14:17.:14:21.

believes the approach is perfect, but the spirit of collaboration

:14:22.:14:23.

appears to be having a positive effect.

Two Scottish-born scientists have won the 2016

Professor David Thouless - who was born in Bearsden -

Michael Kosterlitz of Brown University.

Scotland's Finance Secretary has been accused by the opposition of

:15:22.:15:23.

Derek Mackay is involved in a row about how much information MSPs can

:15:24.:15:28.

receive ahead of the Scottish Government's draft budget.

:15:29.:15:32.

Well, our political correspondent, Andrew Kerr, has been

:15:33.:15:34.

following the story and joins me now from Holyrood.

:15:35.:15:37.

Andrew, opposition MSPs feel they're being kept in the dark about

:15:38.:15:39.

Yes, they feel they are not allowed to scrutinise the

:15:40.:15:52.

Government's plans adequately. This issue may not be the talk over the

:15:53.:15:57.

dinner table in many homes tonight but they want to keep track of where

:15:58.:16:01.

every pound and Penny is going. All the opposition MSPs backed a motion

:16:02.:16:06.

from Patrick Harvie, calling for more information saying it was

:16:07.:16:09.

unacceptable the level of information they had. It's not just

:16:10.:16:14.

the opposition, the finance committee convener also wrote to the

:16:15.:16:20.

finance secretary, saying the information they had was

:16:21.:16:24.

unacceptable. The Chancellor has his Autumn Statement on the 23rd of

:16:25.:16:28.

November, the finance secretary will publish his budget on the 15th of

:16:29.:16:33.

December. Crucial statement with lots of Brexit economic information

:16:34.:16:37.

there so the finance secretary does not want to give bad information I

:16:38.:16:42.

suppose. But Derek Mackay came to Parliament today with a con session.

:16:43.:16:50.

What Parliament asked for was high-level scenario planning. I will

:16:51.:16:55.

provide that within the time scale. I'm happen where you to write to the

:16:56.:17:03.

Finance Committee and he will take a great interest in that. I've

:17:04.:17:11.

repeatedly said I won't publish a draft budget. He could offer

:17:12.:17:19.

concessions, offer to meet parliament and the Finance Committee

:17:20.:17:24.

halfway or try to brazen it out. I regret very much he decided to take

:17:25.:17:28.

the latter part. The opposition Jackie not hugely impressed with

:17:29.:17:33.

what he was offering. They say he's being coy about what might, what

:17:34.:17:37.

information he might be offering. They will keep an eye on him.

:17:38.:17:41.

Looking at this problem in the future a budget review group has

:17:42.:17:45.

been set up to try to ensure there is perhaps a new timetable to see

:17:46.:17:49.

that MSPs have adequate time to look at the budget. Jackie. Thank you

:17:50.:17:51.

very much, Andrew. A look at other stories

:17:52.:17:55.

from across the country... An ECG examination couldn't

:17:56.:17:58.

be done on an inmate suffering chest pains,

:17:59.:18:04.

in Dumfries prison because there wasn't any paper

:18:14.:18:19.

in the city early on Sunday. She fought off her attacker

will result in 17 mature oak Community leaders and politicians

:19:38.:19:40.

have joined the fight Transport Scotland insists there's

:19:41.:19:43.

no final decision on the new route. We go from a small nice, rural road,

:19:44.:19:55.

to an enlarged road with the trees gone, basically. They have been here

he says the success of nations like Wales and Iceland at this

year's European Championships proves Not just the players, the supporters

:20:15.:20:24.

of these teams made it a spectacle. Really fantastic. I know the Tartan

:20:25.:20:31.

Army would anyway. I think there is a place for countries like that. I

:20:32.:20:38.

think if there is a route to make it more manageable to get there, then,

:20:39.:20:41.

yeah, I'm all for it. The former Scotland captain,

:20:42.:20:44.

Barry Ferguson, says he believes Scotland can qualify

:20:45.:20:46.

from this current campaign. His international career ended

:20:47.:20:48.

after the notorious Boozegate He has told BBC Scotland,

:20:49.:20:50.

that since then, he has been too embarrassed to return to Hampden

:20:51.:20:54.

to watch the national team in action, saying his

:20:55.:20:56.

behaviour was a disgrace. The now infamous pictures in the

:20:57.:21:11.

aftermath of Boozegate. Rangers team-mates were dropped to the bench

:21:12.:21:15.

for Scotland v Iceland. Just three days before they had been drinking

:21:16.:21:19.

until the early hours after Scotland's loss in the World Cup

:21:20.:21:25.

qualifier against Holland. Already in disgrace they made matters worse

:21:26.:21:30.

with V signs in deviance. I was a disgrace. That was embarrassing what

:21:31.:21:35.

I'd done. It was embarrassing because it ended my career. To do

:21:36.:21:40.

what I did and not think about the consequence it is would have on

:21:41.:21:43.

family and even my team-mates at Scotland. You know what I mean? It

:21:44.:21:53.

was a sir suss. -- circus. Ferguson was banned from the Scotland team.

:21:54.:21:59.

It's only now, seven years later, he thinks he is face and support the

:22:00.:22:05.

team he once captained. I was sceptical in the past to watch

:22:06.:22:08.

Scotland. I think that is now put to bed and I'd like to go back as a

:22:09.:22:12.

fan. I was pan, at the end of the day. To be honest with you, it does

We haven't got world-class players. But we have got good players. We've

in store, over to Kawser. Good evening. Many of us have ended

the day on a lovely note. Lots of sunshine today and, let's cast our

mind back to earlier this morning, this the sunrise. I couldn't resist

Temperatures 14 to maybe 16 degrees. A shade cooler than today. Today we

look ahead to the end of the week. Up over the hills and the summit we
