So it's goodbye from me and the team on the BBC News at Six.

:00:00.:00:00.

The blatant theft of a motorbike on a busy Edinburgh street.

:00:00.:00:09.

It's on the increase and residents fear an innocent

:00:10.:00:11.

Police release pictures of ten men they want to speak to in connection

:00:12.:00:17.

with the disorder at last month's Old Firm game.

:00:18.:00:20.

Pressure grows for the head of the Crofting Commission to resign

:00:21.:00:23.

over the handling of a dispute with crofters in the Western Isles.

:00:24.:00:28.

A selection headache for Gordon Strachan,

:00:29.:00:30.

as Scotland's footballers prepare for tomorrow's World Cup

:00:31.:00:32.

And a shop in Edinburgh is making a crunchy treat that's bugging cake

:00:33.:00:39.

eaters on the streets of the capital.

:00:40.:00:52.

It's not too bad. That's fine. Not great, but not horrendous. I would

:00:53.:01:01.

rather a strawberry tart and a meringue.

:01:02.:01:07.

Residents in North Edinburgh say they're living in fear,

:01:08.:01:11.

after a rise in motorbike theft and violence by teenagers.

:01:12.:01:15.

Police say they are cracking down, but locals say they want more

:01:16.:01:18.

done before an innocent bystander is killed.

:01:19.:01:20.

It comes as motorbike owners are calling on the Scottish

:01:21.:01:24.

As darkness fell last night, the presence of the police was quickly

:01:25.:01:41.

apparent. Two nights of heightened action. As a consequence, we had six

:01:42.:01:47.

arrests and it has resulted in those individuals being put to court. As

:01:48.:01:51.

it stands, one individual has received a term of imprisonment.

:01:52.:01:56.

Despite this, the community does not feel safe. I have spoken to lots of

:01:57.:02:00.

people about what is going on. Some have said they are afraid to go out

:02:01.:02:04.

after dark. But when it comes to getting people to talk publicly on

:02:05.:02:07.

camera, they say they are afraid they will become targets. One

:02:08.:02:14.

resident asked to remain anonymous. Every day, walking down the street.

:02:15.:02:20.

How sad is that? It's terrifying, terrifying. They like to ride the

:02:21.:02:27.

bikes up. They are so noisy. It is the most frightening... I am trapped

:02:28.:02:39.

in the house. Others have taken to social media. The posts about

:02:40.:02:42.

attacks and intimidation are updated daily. On the other side of the

:02:43.:02:48.

city, we met up with bikers who also say they have been threatened.

:02:49.:02:52.

Members of my family have been threatened. Phone calls basically

:02:53.:02:56.

saying that we are sitting outside your house, your bike is getting

:02:57.:03:01.

stolen. Some of them are carrying screwdrivers now. Kids who are

:03:02.:03:04.

stolen. Some of them are carrying inexperienced are jumping on these

:03:05.:03:07.

bikes, flying down the streets, one footpath is. Putting lives in danger

:03:08.:03:13.

and also themselves. There has been a 22% increase in vehicle theft

:03:14.:03:17.

across the city this year. Tourists and locals have been targeted. This

:03:18.:03:22.

theft took place in the city centre only a month ago. In June, a

:03:23.:03:26.

14-year-old boy was killed driving a stolen bike but that has not stopped

:03:27.:03:30.

the escalation in theft and violence. Despite nearly 30 arrests,

:03:31.:03:35.

we have not seen many custodial sentences. It is a problem at the

:03:36.:03:42.

judiciary. Police say this as a priority. They will meet with

:03:43.:03:46.

community members next week as they continue efforts to crack down on

:03:47.:03:47.

this crime. Police have released images of ten

:03:48.:03:49.

people they want to speak to in connection with disorder

:03:50.:03:52.

at last month's Old Firm game. Effigies of Rangers fans were hung

:03:53.:03:54.

from the stands during the match at Parkhead, and toilets in the away

:03:55.:03:57.

end of the ground were vandalised. Celtic Park on September ten. Both

:03:58.:04:13.

teams take to the field but as the camera pans across the crowd, two

:04:14.:04:18.

hanging effigies can be seen in the home stands. One is wearing a

:04:19.:04:24.

Rangers scarf, the other draped in an orange sash. Four people have

:04:25.:04:27.

appeared in court in connection with that incident. Police Scotland have

:04:28.:04:33.

now released images of these ten people they want to speak to them

:04:34.:04:37.

connection with the vandalism and disorder that marred the old firm

:04:38.:04:39.

game. Mobile phone footage posted on disorder that marred the old firm

:04:40.:04:43.

social media after the match shows fans destroying these toilets. Roof

:04:44.:04:53.

tiles and cubicle doors were damaged in the away stand. This was the

:04:54.:04:59.

state they were left in. Police would like anybody with information

:05:00.:05:02.

about these ten people to contact them.

:05:03.:05:04.

Pressure is mounting on the head of the Crofting Commission

:05:05.:05:07.

to resign, after the First Minister warned that the government

:05:08.:05:09.

would intervene if it didn't put its own house in order.

:05:10.:05:12.

This follows a turbulent few months, during which the commission

:05:13.:05:14.

was forced to apologise to crofters in the Western Isles and then passed

:05:15.:05:18.

a vote of no confidence in its own convener.

:05:19.:05:21.

It is viewed by many as an idyllic lifestyle, part-time farming on

:05:22.:05:35.

small parcels of land with tiny rents. There are almost 20,000

:05:36.:05:41.

crofts in Scotland, protected and regulated by the Crofting

:05:42.:05:44.

Commission. But the body is imploding. It has suspended two

:05:45.:05:48.

local grazing committees in Lewis earlier this year on grounds of

:05:49.:05:54.

financial mismanagement but it was forced to do a U-turn when that was

:05:55.:05:59.

ruled heavy-handed, if not illegal. It begins with the common grazing

:06:00.:06:03.

committees having been put out of office. Two of them. It is how the

:06:04.:06:08.

Crofting Commission have gone about that and the uproar it has caused.

:06:09.:06:12.

The Scottish Government called on the commission and its convener to

:06:13.:06:17.

apologise to the crofters involved. Last week, he stormed out of a

:06:18.:06:21.

commissioner's meeting. They issued an apology and then passed a vote of

:06:22.:06:25.

no confidence in Mr Kennedy. So who is running the show? The First

:06:26.:06:30.

Minister was asked at Holyrood yesterday. Crofting commissioners

:06:31.:06:33.

have called on the convener to resign. The Scottish Government has

:06:34.:06:37.

requested further information from the convener in relation to last

:06:38.:06:41.

week's events. While the government would not ordinarily intervene in

:06:42.:06:44.

the internal operations of an independent statutory body, the

:06:45.:06:48.

legislation gives Scottish ministers power to act if required. I

:06:49.:06:54.

contacted Mr Kennedy at his home by phone earlier today and he told me

:06:55.:06:58.

he had no plans to resign but would make no further comment. But the

:06:59.:07:01.

implication of the intervention by Nicola Sturgeon is clear. Either he

:07:02.:07:08.

jumps, or he will be pushed. There is no doubt there has been a fallout

:07:09.:07:11.

amongst commissioners caused by the behaviour of the conditioner -- the

:07:12.:07:15.

Commissioner of the Crofting Commission. It needs a new convener,

:07:16.:07:21.

a reconstituted board and to get back to doing what it is meant to

:07:22.:07:24.

do, working for crofters across Scotland. But does this matter to

:07:25.:07:29.

those who live and work in crofting communities? People being removed

:07:30.:07:33.

from office unfairly and unjustifiably has a huge effect on

:07:34.:07:37.

small communities. Allegations made that have not been proven to be

:07:38.:07:41.

correct, that split divided communities and cause lots of

:07:42.:07:46.

problems. There is a saying that a croft is a piece of land surrounded

:07:47.:07:49.

by legislation. It is an old joke, but never was a truer word spoken in

:07:50.:07:52.

jest. Performers from Dundee, New Delhi,

:07:53.:07:54.

South Uist and Chicago will take to the stage this weekend

:07:55.:07:57.

for a festival to mark the tenth anniversary

:07:58.:07:59.

of the National Theatre of Scotland. The festival, the first of its kind,

:08:00.:08:01.

celebrates the outreach work the company has done in communities

:08:02.:08:05.

across Scotland Our arts correspondent

:08:06.:08:07.

Pauline McLean reports. Home means different things to

:08:08.:08:24.

different people. For these Brazilian performers, it's about

:08:25.:08:27.

life on the streets of Rio, protest and Samba. They are one of ten

:08:28.:08:33.

community arts companies who brought their version of home to Glasgow to

:08:34.:08:37.

mark the tenth anniversary of the National Theatre of Scotland. Inside

:08:38.:08:45.

yourself, you assess this and let it come out loudly, I think. I think

:08:46.:08:51.

that's very strong, that all the art has come from the communities and

:08:52.:08:56.

their situation, because they just want to speak. They just want to let

:08:57.:09:00.

people know who they are, what is their reality, what they think, what

:09:01.:09:06.

is their sensibility. The same is true for the five Scottish

:09:07.:09:09.

companies, including this one, which worked with a community in the

:09:10.:09:13.

Highlands. They may seem 1 million miles from Rio or Chicago, but their

:09:14.:09:19.

approach is the same. As a company, we work with people and look at

:09:20.:09:23.

people. We attended quite a few local barbecues in the area,

:09:24.:09:29.

actually. So there was a big coming together of communities. We went and

:09:30.:09:32.

filmed portraits at those events and that was an honest way of connecting

:09:33.:09:38.

with people. The National Theatre of Scotland, connecting with

:09:39.:09:41.

communities to tell their stories has been as important in their first

:09:42.:09:46.

decade as high-profile performances. Shetland, for example, was concerned

:09:47.:09:49.

about car culture, so their show dealt with that. The Bangladesh

:09:50.:09:55.

community in Glasgow, nobody really knows their story, about how they

:09:56.:10:00.

fled in the same way as Syrian refugees, but back in 1971. That

:10:01.:10:04.

story has never been told, but now it is a really urgent story. That

:10:05.:10:10.

authentic voice lives here and that is why we have been successful. So,

:10:11.:10:18.

for the next five days, companies from across the world will make

:10:19.:10:22.

themselves at home here in Glasgow. And who knows, the stories they

:10:23.:10:26.

share in coming days may make collaborations for the future.

:10:27.:10:30.

:10:31.:10:31.

Residents in North Edinburgh say they're living in fear,

:10:32.:10:37.

after a rise in motorbike theft and violence by teenagers.

:10:38.:10:43.

The efforts being made to get Scotland's basketball team to the

:10:44.:10:52.

Commonwealth Games in Australia. A replica Iron Age roundhouse

:10:53.:10:57.

is being built in Whithorn to show how people lived in Galloway

:10:58.:10:59.

in that period. Thanks to an amazing

:11:00.:11:02.

archaeological find, Ancient history construct it. A

:11:03.:11:18.

modern interpretation of an Iron Age roundhouse, but informed accurately

:11:19.:11:26.

by a 2500 -year-old template. Last year, in nearby woodland,

:11:27.:11:29.

archaeologists found an amazingly well preserved roundhouse under the

:11:30.:11:33.

peak of a so-called lock village. The only one of its kind in

:11:34.:11:37.

Scotland, occupied by a native tribe around 500 BC. The remarkable degree

:11:38.:11:43.

of preservation has enabled the reconstruction to be as authentic as

:11:44.:11:48.

possible. On the war and floors, Hazelwood. The basic structure is

:11:49.:11:54.

all the. A rather grand oak doorway and on top, a thatched roof of water

:11:55.:11:59.

reed. Traditional building methods are used where possible. When you

:12:00.:12:03.

are working with read, you use one of these things. I have seen an

:12:04.:12:09.

Egyptian hieroglyph of a Thatcher, a picture of a fellow up a ladder with

:12:10.:12:14.

one of these in his hand. That is about 3000 years old. The methods

:12:15.:12:18.

haven't changed very much as far as I know, nor have the tools.

:12:19.:12:24.

Volunteers are shown how to do the work, period costume adding to the

:12:25.:12:28.

authenticity for some. It is taking the craft and the real physical

:12:29.:12:32.

thing and creating a space where people can walk back through time in

:12:33.:12:35.

their imagination and learn about where we have come from. That is

:12:36.:12:39.

what draws me to this particular project. This is where Saint Ninian

:12:40.:12:46.

first brought Christianity to Scotland, and archaeological tourism

:12:47.:12:51.

is already the town's lifeblood. It will be used by local schools and

:12:52.:12:55.

students for studying prehistory and will be part of our visitor

:12:56.:12:59.

attraction from Easter next year. And we hope for more unusual uses,

:13:00.:13:03.

such as event higher performance, and perhaps for us in the summer to

:13:04.:13:08.

run workshops and traditional crafts and that kind of thing. Iron Age,

:13:09.:13:10.

new age. A look at other stories

:13:11.:13:13.

from across the country. A 45-year-old man has been

:13:14.:13:17.

arrested in connection with the death of a man in Airdrie

:13:18.:13:21.

in North Lanarkshire last week. The body of 40-year-old

:13:22.:13:24.

Malcolm McLaren was discovered at his flat in the town's

:13:25.:13:26.

Clark Street last month. Police Scotland said a man had been

:13:27.:13:28.

detained in custody and was expected to appear

:13:29.:13:31.

at Airdrie Sheriff Court on Monday. Four passengers have been arrested

:13:32.:13:36.

by Spanish police, after a disturbance on board a Ryanair

:13:37.:13:38.

flight from Edinburgh to Alicante. Ryanair said the four were detained,

:13:39.:13:43.

after they became "disruptive" during the three-hour journey,

:13:44.:13:45.

which left Edinburgh The airline said that the men had

:13:46.:13:46.

been removed and then detained by officers on arrival

:13:47.:13:54.

at the Spanish airport. A ban on certain types of Super Puma

:13:55.:13:59.

helicopters flying in the UK The Civil Aviation Authority says it

:14:00.:14:04.

won't allow the 225 and L2 fleet to take to the air again,

:14:05.:14:12.

until an investigation into a crash 13 people, including

:14:13.:14:16.

Iain Stuart from Aberdeenshire, were killed in the

:14:17.:14:23.

crash near Bergen. Counter-pollution measures

:14:24.:14:27.

were taken after a leakage of hydraulic or gear oil was spotted

:14:28.:14:30.

from the Transocean Winner rig. The coastguard said it believed

:14:31.:14:35.

a maximum of 50 litres The 17,000-tonne structure ran

:14:36.:14:38.

aground on the Western Isles It's now out of the water

:14:39.:14:44.

on the deck of a semi-submersible Police have issued an appeal

:14:45.:14:49.

for information about why a chicken was seen crossing

:14:50.:14:55.

the road in Dundee. Officers were called

:14:56.:14:57.

to East Marketgait, after reports of the bird "giving passing

:14:58.:15:01.

motorists cause for concern". The chicken was traced by officers

:15:02.:15:04.

and taken to a police station, with the SSPCA brought

:15:05.:15:07.

in to care for it. The force is working

:15:08.:15:10.

to trace the bird's owner. Gordon Strachan says he's not

:15:11.:15:18.

setting his Scotland players any targets for the World Cup double

:15:19.:15:20.

header against Lithuania Lithuania are first up

:15:21.:15:22.

at Hampden tomorrow night, Here's our senior football

:15:23.:15:27.

reporter, Chris McLaughlin. Here at the National Stadium,

:15:28.:15:42.

exactly a year ago tomorrow, Scotland's Euro 2016 hopes died when

:15:43.:15:46.

these players drew 2-2 with Poland. Now, they're hoping a win tomorrow

:15:47.:15:51.

can pro pel them towards World Cup qualification. I don't think the

:15:52.:15:57.

hurt ever goes, I think it strives you on, especially older ones, it

:15:58.:16:03.

makes you more determined. It makes you try and get everyone else more

:16:04.:16:07.

determined and focused. Really focussing and make sure this time

:16:08.:16:10.

it's going to be our Some say if time. This is to be Scotland's time

:16:11.:16:16.

then this is a must win game. So what is the target for the

:16:17.:16:19.

double-header? I've never head any targets in nigh life for anything I

:16:20.:16:24.

do. I just get on and do it and just live in the present. Some managers

:16:25.:16:28.

do that, but if you don't achieve what you're after, you can

:16:29.:16:32.

disappoint yourself and everybody. You can disappoint everybody. We go

:16:33.:16:37.

on and see where we go. Scotland are the clear favourites on paper. They

:16:38.:16:42.

sit-in 44th place. As for tomorrow's opponents they are a full 73 places

:16:43.:16:47.

below them. COMMENTATOR: In on the goalkeeper.

:16:48.:16:55.

He's wrapped it up for Hearts. Their manager knows the Scottish game from

:16:56.:17:00.

his time at Hearts. He had has Lithuania playing attacking

:17:01.:17:02.

football. The rankings may not tell the full story. It's like the lowest

:17:03.:17:09.

ranking in Lithuania's history, but since he took over the national team

:17:10.:17:12.

our results and our play of the game is kind of different. 35,000

:17:13.:17:18.

supporters are expected here tomorrow and the fans have been

:17:19.:17:22.

asked to pick a new tune for when Scotland score. The winner... Not a

:17:23.:17:33.

favourite for everyone. If this is playering out here at the National

:17:34.:17:38.

Stadium tomorrow, there won't be many complaints.

:17:39.:17:43.

Scotland's world boxing champion, Ricky Burns,

:17:44.:17:45.

defends his super-lightweight title tonight in Glasgow.

:17:46.:17:47.

The bout is taking place less than a week after the death

:17:48.:17:50.

Burns says he'll have to put the tragedy to the back of his mind

:17:51.:17:57.

when he steps into the ring, as David Currie reports.

:17:58.:18:06.

For Ricky Burns, like many others when it comes to he with aing up the

:18:07.:18:11.

dangers of boxing with their passion with the sport, it's no contest.

:18:12.:18:15.

While mourning the death of one of their own. A week ago Mike Towell

:18:16.:18:22.

stepped into the ring for what would have been his final fight. I can't

:18:23.:18:27.

manage how his family are feeling. Every fighter knows they are risking

:18:28.:18:31.

when they put their gloves on and climb through the ropes. I have been

:18:32.:18:36.

boxing for so many years and I have been trying to put that at the back

:18:37.:18:41.

of my mind. I haven't being paid that much attention. In this game,

:18:42.:18:46.

anything can happen. The 33-year-old faces an opponent with a formidable

:18:47.:18:51.

reputation. He's a nasty type of fighter. Which is what you need in

:18:52.:18:58.

the boxing. I was a nice guy. He will need to be nastier. It's hard

:18:59.:19:03.

to convince a fellow with 19 knockouts rather than 21 you will

:19:04.:19:08.

not only be able to bash this guy. For the duration of this fight,

:19:09.:19:12.

Ricky Burns and Kiryl Relikh will focus on getting the better of one

:19:13.:19:17.

another. Some of the money from ticket sales will go towards the

:19:18.:19:20.

family of Mike Towell. Fighters are special people. We need to make sure

:19:21.:19:24.

that Mike Towell's family are comfortable and have the right

:19:25.:19:28.

support, financially and emotionally, because everybody is

:19:29.:19:30.

touched by the passing of Mike Towell.

:19:31.:19:37.

We aren't exactly known as a basketballing nation,

:19:38.:19:38.

Efforts are being made to ensure that Scotland get

:19:39.:19:43.

to the Commonwealth Games in Australia in two years' time,

:19:44.:19:46.

You might not recognise this man, but he's the poster boy for Scottish

:19:47.:19:55.

and British basketball and having missed out on the home event, he is

:19:56.:20:01.

determined to get his country to the Gold Coast in 2018 an inspired a new

:20:02.:20:07.

generation along the way. There is a lot of volunteer work, going to

:20:08.:20:10.

schools and talk about sport, being active. A lot of kids are talking

:20:11.:20:15.

about 2014 and the Commonwealth Games. Everyone was feeding off

:20:16.:20:18.

that. The hype was there. The buzz was there. Basketball, we never got

:20:19.:20:24.

to be there. I think it would be a huge difference. 2018 can be a

:20:25.:20:28.

starting point to rebuild and make sure kids are getting behind and

:20:29.:20:32.

inspired to play the sport. Work has begun to get there. Sport Scotland

:20:33.:20:38.

invested ?280,000 and athletes will play under the watchful eye of the

:20:39.:20:44.

newly appointed national coaches. By having key players and young players

:20:45.:20:48.

here playing in the BBL and around the national league we have that

:20:49.:20:52.

platform to continue on our improvement, which we have not had

:20:53.:20:56.

in years past and there has been a little bit of a disconnect. Right

:20:57.:21:00.

now we feel we're in a great spot to lead this qualification process. The

:21:01.:21:06.

men aren't the only ones trying to get here. Scotland has its first

:21:07.:21:10.

professional women's team in the British league, which they hope will

:21:11.:21:14.

be invaluable. We have all this funding that has been pushed into

:21:15.:21:18.

our club. We are now training full-time athletes. It's fantastic.

:21:19.:21:24.

It gives us, not just us, but also the younger generation, especially

:21:25.:21:27.

younger girls playing any sport, it gives them a sense of hope and

:21:28.:21:33.

inspiration that they can go somewhere with their sporting

:21:34.:21:36.

career. You don't have to wait two years. The Glasgow Rocks their Donna

:21:37.:21:42.

Pride Ical there is plenty of talent to impress right here on our

:21:43.:21:44.

doorstep. A patisserie in Edinburgh has

:21:45.:21:48.

brought out a range of cakes for Halloween designed

:21:49.:21:51.

to pack a crunch. Aileen Clarke has been

:21:52.:21:52.

out on the streets of All set for Hallowe'en? You have the

:21:53.:22:08.

pumpkin decorations, plastic spiders and the fake cobwebs, how about some

:22:09.:22:12.

truly beastly treats. This patisserie in Edinburgh is putting

:22:13.:22:16.

creepy crawlies into cakes to get into the spirit of it this year.

:22:17.:22:20.

It's a chance to promote what they argue is a nutritions and

:22:21.:22:24.

environmentally friendly alternative to more popular sources of protein,

:22:25.:22:29.

like beef. What is that? This is a meal worm, a cricket. All the

:22:30.:22:37.

insects we have in our shop today crickets, meal worms are all edible

:22:38.:22:42.

ones. A little crunch to them and fantastic taste. This will be a very

:22:43.:22:47.

hard sell in Scotland when we don't even eat as much Brockley as we

:22:48.:22:52.

should? Of course. People in Scotland are, from my opinion as a

:22:53.:22:55.

French person, are very tolerant and open minded. I'm sure there is no

:22:56.:23:00.

doubt they will be tempted at least to try them. Normally, at this

:23:01.:23:05.

stage, your report would taste the goods. You know what, I've got a

:23:06.:23:17.

much better idea. What we have here sir is chocolate brownees garnished

:23:18.:23:21.

with meal worms and the odd scorpion. I will try one. Good man.

:23:22.:23:27.

Taking my life in my hands here! Go on. I feel I'm on a jungle celebrity

:23:28.:23:35.

challenge. It's not too bad. Do you want another bit? No, that's fine.

:23:36.:23:39.

Not great. It's not horrendous. I would rather have a straw berry tart

:23:40.:23:45.

and a meringue. Thanks anyway. That is your first ever scorpion? Yeah.

:23:46.:23:52.

Would you recommend it? Yes. The flavour is delicious. There is

:23:53.:23:55.

chocolate and everything coming through. The only thing that is

:23:56.:24:00.

missing is a glass of wine. Ah, would that be red or white with the

:24:01.:24:08.

meal worms, madame? Kirstie was saying how she would to try them.

:24:09.:24:12.

That would be right. It put me off my dinner. Thank you very much. Good

:24:13.:24:17.

evening. High pressure has dominated proceedings over the last couple of

:24:18.:24:20.

days so the weather has been settled and largely dry. Over the weekend it

:24:21.:24:25.

goes nowhere. For this evening and tonight we hold on to largely dry

:24:26.:24:35.

conditions. A fair amount of cloud around southern areas. The north

:24:36.:24:38.

will have long clear spells. A contrast in temperatures. Where we

:24:39.:24:46.

hold on to the cloud, 8-1 0 degrees the north could be down to freezing.

:24:47.:24:54.

Fist and fog in the highland glens. Brisk winds to the coasts and the

:24:55.:25:00.

isles, too. Tomorrow, another dry day for the vast majority with

:25:01.:25:04.

sunshine around. Eastern areas will see cloud rolling in from the North

:25:05.:25:07.

Sea as we go through the day. There will be one or two showers around.

:25:08.:25:12.

More especially across the south-west tomorrow afternoon,

:25:13.:25:14.

perhaps one or two showers to the north-east, too. Otherwise it is

:25:15.:25:20.

looking dry with bright and sunny spells. 13 and 14 Celsius for most

:25:21.:25:27.

of us. The north-west will see the lion's share of the sunshine,

:25:28.:25:30.

temperatures rising to 16 high pressure 17 Celsius. It will feel

:25:31.:25:37.

pleasant with light winds. For hill walking and climbing tomorrow the

:25:38.:25:40.

more north-western ranges will be cloud-free. More in the way of cloud

:25:41.:25:47.

to the Angus Hills with light showers. The winds will be moderate

:25:48.:25:50.

to fresh. Temperatures around five or six Celsius on the tops. For the

:25:51.:25:54.

central and southern ranges, again a fair amount of cloud here, one or

:25:55.:25:59.

two showers across the bofrder hills with some sunshine for the Gallowyay

:26:00.:26:05.

Hills. Temperatures around five or six Celsius. Tomorrow evening we

:26:06.:26:09.

will hold on to dry conditions. A few showers to the east gradually

:26:10.:26:13.

spreading their way further west. Tomorrow evening, if you are heading

:26:14.:26:17.

to ham den, to the football, it's looking dry. There will be variable

:26:18.:26:22.

amounts of cloud. Temperatures of around 12 Celsius and mostly light

:26:23.:26:27.

winds. Into Sunday, we still have this huge area of high pressure

:26:28.:26:32.

dominating proceedings. Again, it is looking fine and dry for most of us.

:26:33.:26:35.

Plenty of sunshine around. Just a few showers in the east. Temperature

:26:36.:26:41.

wise around 12 to 14 Celsius with mostly light winds. That's the

:26:42.:26:44.

forecast. Sally. Thank you very much.

:26:45.:26:49.

Now, a reminder of tonight's main news.

:26:50.:26:51.

Local officials in Haiti now say the number of dead in the wake

:26:52.:26:54.

of Hurricane Matthew has risen to more than 800.

:26:55.:26:56.

It's left a trail of destruction across the Caribbean, also hitting

:26:57.:26:58.

Cuba and the Dominican Republic and now the southern

:26:59.:27:00.

Residents in north Edinburgh say they're living in "fear"

:27:01.:27:06.

after a rise in motorbike theft and violence by teenagers.

:27:07.:27:08.

Police say they are cracking down, but locals say they want more

:27:09.:27:11.

done before an innocent bystander is killed.

:27:12.:27:15.

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

:27:16.:27:19.

Until then, from everyone on the team - right

:27:20.:27:22.

across the country - have a very good evening.

:27:23.:27:27.
