The Deputy First Minister promises more funding for EU students

:00:00.:00:08.

and tells the SNP conference that their rights

but will the team be happy after tonight's

And a new statue commemorates the women and children left behind

:00:39.:00:41.

EU students in Scotland have been promised funding for another year.

:00:42.:01:03.

But John Swinney - who made the announcement at the SNP

:01:04.:01:05.

conference in Glasgow - also challenged UK ministers

:01:06.:01:07.

to guarantee the right for EU students to stay

:01:08.:01:10.

The conference also debated whether this was the right time

:01:11.:01:17.

for the SNP to call another referendum on Scottish independence.

:01:18.:01:19.

This from our political editor, Brian Taylor.

:01:20.:01:28.

This woman is run Sweden, just one of 2500 EU students at Aberdeen

University. After the Brexit filled the university promised their study

:01:36.:01:40.

places were secure but still, they fret. For themselves and for those

:01:41.:01:45.

who want to follow them. A lot of my friends are EU students so it was

:01:46.:01:50.

worrying for every single person. At the SNP conference John Swinney

:01:51.:01:53.

promised to extend funding to EU students for another year, 42017 and

:01:54.:02:01.

18, but he wants UK ministers to guarantee their right to stay

:02:02.:02:05.

regardless of Brexit negotiations. These people are not cards to be

:02:06.:02:09.

played. They are fellow human beings, to use them as negotiating

:02:10.:02:14.

chips is obscene and this party and this SNP government will have none

:02:15.:02:20.

of it. The conference broadened the by welcoming family from Australia

:02:21.:02:23.

who eventually won the right to stay in Scotland. Alex Salmond said the

:02:24.:02:29.

story showed the Conservatives' true intent. If we stick to London room

:02:30.:02:33.

we know what exactly lies in store- boils down to its essence, a closed,

:02:34.:02:39.

intolerant backward looking society. Theresa May's little England. The

:02:40.:02:45.

party Deputy Leader had an explicit warning for Theresa May. If you

:02:46.:02:49.

continue to ignore the expressed will of the people of Scotland, if

:02:50.:02:54.

you refuse to even consider how we might protect Scotland's place in

:02:55.:02:59.

the EU, NBN no doubt, your days as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom

:03:00.:03:06.

are numbered. But does it all add up to an early referendum? Delegates

:03:07.:03:13.

are not entirely certain. Some argue yes. The message to the Prime

:03:14.:03:17.

Minister is this... The days of Scotland being sidelined or over.

:03:18.:03:22.

Redmayne means remain, our voice will be heard. Some say... The next

:03:23.:03:28.

independence referendum must be one that we are confident we can win.

:03:29.:03:32.

When the time is right or the issue is off the agenda for decades. I

:03:33.:03:37.

would urge caution and while I applaud the sentiment of the

:03:38.:03:41.

resolution, my concern is that we're tying the independence referendum

:03:42.:03:46.

solely to the trigger of Brexit. Reflecting on the dilemma, Nicola

:03:47.:03:51.

Sturgeon told delegates, welcome to my world. Welcome, indeed, to post

:03:52.:03:56.

Brexit politics. Rarely pure, never simple.

:03:57.:03:57.

And Brian joins us now from the conference in Glasgow.

:03:58.:04:00.

That debate about a second referendum reflected a genuine

:04:01.:04:02.

It does, a genuine decent dignified honourable division of opinion, not

:04:03.:04:17.

an objective, they yearn for independence but over the strategy

:04:18.:04:20.

for bringing that about and whether to hold an early referendum. Those

:04:21.:04:23.

for bringing that about and whether who say perhaps an early referendum

:04:24.:04:26.

is justified say that the UK that was on offer in the referendum in

:04:27.:04:31.

2014 has changed as a result of the Brexit vote, it is no longer there.

:04:32.:04:37.

They also characterise opinion among the right in England as being

:04:38.:04:42.

xenophobic and they believe Scotland will resile from that and that

:04:43.:04:46.

argues for independence. Those counselling caution say this is a

:04:47.:04:50.

time of uncertainty caused by the Brexit vote and does an early

:04:51.:04:56.

referendum not add to that uncertainty? They also argue that

:04:57.:04:59.

perhaps there are some people who supported independence in 2014 but

:05:00.:05:05.

do not particularly favoured the European Union, perhaps ordered to

:05:06.:05:07.

leave in the referendum earlier this year. In other words, the Brexit

:05:08.:05:16.

vote being a trigger to hold the referendum, but is this the button

:05:17.:05:21.

to push to get the yes vote? It is a genuine dilemma for the SNP.

:05:22.:05:23.

Hundreds of mourners have attended the funeral

:05:24.:05:25.

of the boxer Mike Towell, who died after a bout

:05:26.:05:27.

The service at St Andrew's Cathedral in Dundee was also

:05:28.:05:30.

attended by his opponent, the Welsh boxer Dale Evans.

:05:31.:05:33.

It's emerged that in the weeks before the fight Mike Towell,

:05:34.:05:36.

who was 25, had been suffering from headaches but had put

:05:37.:05:39.

The family of Mike Towell say the two weeks since his death have been

:05:40.:05:57.

surreal. This morning, they gathered at St Andrew's Cathedral in his

:05:58.:06:01.

Dundee home to say their final goodbye. And there were not alone.

:06:02.:06:06.

Around 300 people joined them, friends, ordinary people from Dundee

:06:07.:06:09.

and members of the boxing fraternity. To pay their respects.

:06:10.:06:16.

Among them was Dale Evans, the fighter who delivered the globe

:06:17.:06:17.

Among them was Dale Evans, the which floored Mike Towell. He later

:06:18.:06:21.

played his own tribute at this mural. In a statement, the family

:06:22.:06:26.

said that Dale Evans had also been through so much and no fault would

:06:27.:06:30.

never lie with him. This was just two boys boxing and doing what they

:06:31.:06:35.

loved best. That spirit of generosity was also evident in the

:06:36.:06:39.

funeral service. One of his friends spoke and he was very humorous, he

:06:40.:06:44.

talked warmly about his life and the upbringing he had, he was a hardy

:06:45.:06:48.

boy with a great sense of humour. A man who was very much loved among

:06:49.:06:53.

friends and family and the boxing community. The funeral is not the

:06:54.:06:59.

only way that Dundee is remembering Mike Towell. There is a huge amount

:07:00.:07:03.

of respect and affection for Mike Towell and his family here in

:07:04.:07:08.

Dundee. But questions remain about the state of his health in the lead

:07:09.:07:13.

up to that fatal fight. The biggest moment of his career! Mike died

:07:14.:07:18.

after his life-support machine was switched off following his collapse

:07:19.:07:22.

in this fight last month. It later emerged he had been suffering from

:07:23.:07:27.

headaches during training. What is clear is that his family is

:07:28.:07:31.

devastated. But they say they will also smile every day at his memory.

:07:32.:07:36.

The two-year-old girl who was killed after being hit by a car

:07:37.:07:39.

in Perthshire has been named as Harlow Edwards from Cupar Angus.

:07:40.:07:43.

Her six-year-old brother and 17-year-old sister were also hit

:07:44.:07:45.

when the car mounted the pavement after being

:07:46.:07:47.

They're both in hospital with serious injuries.

:07:48.:07:57.

The accident happened on the A94 yesterday afternoon.

:07:58.:07:59.

Police say they're very concerned for the welfare of a woman

:08:00.:08:03.

from Ayr who's gone missing with her two children.

:08:04.:08:06.

29-year-old Farah Fadli, who's also known as Farah Gillespie,

:08:07.:08:10.

was last seen by a friend on Wednesday morning.

:08:11.:08:14.

It's believed she was with her ten-year-old son

:08:15.:08:16.

McKenzie and her daughter Eva, who's four.

:08:17.:08:18.

Police say it's very unusual for Farah not to be

:08:19.:08:20.

The human rights group Liberty says it's continuing attempts

:08:21.:08:27.

to have an inquest reopened into the death of a Scottish

:08:28.:08:30.

It follows today's ruling at the High Court in London

:08:31.:08:36.

authorising a fresh inquest into the death of another serviceman

:08:37.:08:39.

Our home affairs correspondent, Reevel Alderson, is here now.

:08:40.:08:44.

Remind us of the background to this, Reevel.

:08:45.:08:49.

The story goes back to March 2002 men Private James Collinson, who was

:08:50.:08:58.

17, in the army training, was found dead from a single gunshot wound,

:08:59.:09:02.

training at the Deepcut Barracks and an inquest was held into the death

:09:03.:09:07.

with an open verdict returned. Since then his parents have tried to find

:09:08.:09:12.

out a little more about what happened. Private Collinson was a

:09:13.:09:16.

fourth young soldier to die at the Deepcut Barracks, where evidence

:09:17.:09:21.

emerged of severe bullying. This was not available to the inquest and

:09:22.:09:24.

since then his parents have asked for the MoD to release mental health

:09:25.:09:31.

records, medical records and also material about how the army cared

:09:32.:09:34.

for their son. Today in a separate case the High Court in London gave

:09:35.:09:38.

permission for a new inquest to be held into the death of Private Sean

:09:39.:09:45.

Benton, the first of these four young soldier to die and the human

:09:46.:09:50.

rights group Liberty had asked for various bits of material from the

:09:51.:09:53.

MoD which had not been available to the inquest and they say that now

:09:54.:09:58.

they also have secured disclosure of similar documents relating to the

:09:59.:10:02.

death of private Collinson but so far there has been an update on

:10:03.:10:06.

whether or not any inquest will be sought or even ordered into his

:10:07.:10:10.

death. It was impossible to date to contact his mother or father. Thank

:10:11.:10:13.

you. A woman has been charged

:10:14.:10:15.

with the attempted murder of two police officers on duty in West

:10:16.:10:17.

Lothian. The officers had responded

:10:18.:10:19.

to a report of concern for a person at around 4pm yesterday afternoon

:10:20.:10:22.

on Hopefield Drive in Blackburn. An officer sustained minor injuries

:10:23.:10:25.

after being struck by a black Mini Cooper and was taken

:10:26.:10:27.

to hospital as a precaution. Scotland's exam body has admitted

:10:28.:10:33.

to a series of mistakes in one of last summer's

:10:34.:10:37.

computer science tests. There were a number of coding errors

:10:38.:10:43.

in the National 5 question paper, according to a report

:10:44.:10:46.

by the Scottish It also found several typographical

:10:47.:10:47.

mistakes in the paper, The SQA said adjustments had been

:10:48.:10:51.

made to the grade boundaries to make sure no candidates were affected

:10:52.:10:56.

by the errors. In just over a week

:10:57.:11:04.

the Burrell Collection in Glasgow will close its doors for four years

:11:05.:11:06.

for a multi-million While the A-listed building

:11:07.:11:09.

is refurbished, the collection of more than 9,000 artefacts will be

:11:10.:11:12.

moved - some of it into storage, and some into exhibition

:11:13.:11:15.

spaces at home and abroad. Our arts correspondent

:11:16.:11:17.

Pauline McLean reports. I have got a beautiful and unique

:11:18.:11:34.

carpet fragment from the ancient city... It was made their way carpet

:11:35.:11:43.

weavers. In 1610. Deep in the basement of the Burrell Collection,

:11:44.:11:47.

there are many treasures which have never seen the light of day. It has

:11:48.:11:52.

lived in these stories for many years and we are hoping that with

:11:53.:11:57.

the new refurbishment it will appear in a story about figurative imagery

:11:58.:12:03.

in Islamic art, is it permissible or forbidden, given it is so

:12:04.:12:06.

in Islamic art, is it permissible or controversial? Less than a fifth of

:12:07.:12:09.

the collection is on public display at the moment and in the new

:12:10.:12:13.

building that will be nearer to 90%, including the basement, which will

:12:14.:12:16.

be open to the public for the first time. This is the biggest

:12:17.:12:20.

undertaking since the Burrell Collection first opened in 1983. It

:12:21.:12:26.

must be a great satisfaction to you to see this building open and its

:12:27.:12:29.

treasures so well displayed. Its parkland site far from city centre

:12:30.:12:35.

pollution is a condition of the bequest. As a shipping baggage, Sir

:12:36.:12:39.

William Burrell was concerned about keeping his treasures safe. It was

:12:40.:12:44.

where he also insisted in it never turning abroad. But the city argues

:12:45.:12:50.

that was outdated and after a lengthy legal battle, it overturned

:12:51.:12:54.

the condition and while it is closed, key artworks will tour the

:12:55.:12:57.

world, raising the profile of the collection as well as funds. This

:12:58.:13:01.

has been a great pivotal achievement for us, it means we are released on

:13:02.:13:07.

the world stage for the first time and that means it encourages great

:13:08.:13:10.

collaboration with international partners such as the Museum of fine

:13:11.:13:17.

Art in Houston, where four pictures will go on display imminently. Most

:13:18.:13:23.

of the 9000 artefacts will go into storage carefully wrapped and boxed

:13:24.:13:26.

and catalogued in the coming months. Ready to go on display in the new

Burrell Museum in 2020. You're watching BBC

Reporting Scotland. The Deputy First Minister promises

:13:34.:13:36.

more funding for EU students and tells the SNP conference that

their rights should be guaranteed. And still to come: A new statue

commemorates the women and children left behind

by the Eyemouth fishing disaster. The most advanced collection

:13:51.:13:58.

of unmanned drones and remotely operated vessels ever assembled

:13:59.:14:02.

is currently taking to the skies - and the waves - as part of a major

:14:03.:14:05.

military operation The exercise involves naval staff

:14:06.:14:08.

and defence contractors from several countries and is designed to show

:14:09.:14:15.

how these devices can help keep frontline forces away from the most

:14:16.:14:18.

dangerous situations. The land Warrior exercise is

:14:19.:14:31.

bringing together an unprecedented number remote devices that flight,

:14:32.:14:38.

swim or sale on the water, to see just how they function together in a

:14:39.:14:42.

real warfare scenario. It sounds like James Bond stuff but these

:14:43.:14:47.

devices really do exist. It is all about the best tool for the job and

:14:48.:14:52.

people are crucially best at making the decisions and the machines are

:14:53.:14:55.

best at gathering information and helping us decide when to intervene.

:14:56.:15:00.

These patrol boats behind me look like standard vessels but there is

:15:01.:15:04.

one important difference Daesh there is no cockpit, there is no wheel,

:15:05.:15:09.

because they are designed for unmanned operation. They are

:15:10.:15:14.

controlled by a human but, crucially, that person is kept well

:15:15.:15:16.

out of danger. Countermeasures which we demonstrate here are inherently

:15:17.:15:23.

dangerous. If we can move people further away from the danger of

:15:24.:15:27.

those mines and use the unmanned systems to do what we call dull,

:15:28.:15:33.

dirty and dangerous, that is a good thing. This exercise in and around

:15:34.:15:37.

the Hebrides has involved 50 different types of unmanned craft, a

:15:38.:15:41.

dozen defence contractors and forces from several countries. The unique

:15:42.:15:47.

aspect is the integration of 50 unmanned technologies joined in

coalition, accelerating the autonomous learning capacity,

:15:55.:15:57.

collaborating in the science and technology realm and innovating with

:15:58.:16:02.

world-class navies into a fleet exercise. What many in the military

:16:03.:16:07.

have come to realise is much of this technology is emerging from outside

:16:08.:16:11.

the defence industry. And some is even available on the High Street.

:16:12.:16:16.

This exercise is an attempt to exploit the capabilities and push

:16:17.:16:18.

the boundaries of how this technology can be used to counteract

:16:19.:16:22.

enemy or terrorist activity and protect our troops.

:16:23.:16:30.

Let's take a look now at other stories from across the country.

:16:31.:16:33.

Police say a fire at a derelict hospital in Aberdeenshire

:16:34.:16:35.

More than 60 firefighters were called to Glen O'Dee

:16:36.:16:38.

Some patients at a nearby community hospital were moved internally,

:16:39.:16:43.

while firefighters tackled the outbreak

:16:44.:16:44.

This morning, my reports are that our patients are all settled. They

usual. The public is to be given

to the Western Isles Apart from being a celebration

:17:50.:17:50.

of language and culture, it's hoped the event will provide

:17:51.:17:55.

the area with an economic boost. Hate crimes against disabled people

:17:56.:18:07.

occur frequently in Scotland, but most go unreported

:18:08.:18:11.

and there are few convictions. Now a touring film campaign aimed

between Police Scotland and a leading disability charity

based in Renfrewshire. There are 1 million people

:18:20.:18:33.

registered with a disability or long term illness in Scotland. 97% of

:18:34.:18:38.

disability hate crime goes unreported in Scotland alone. There

:18:39.:18:41.

were only 112 prosecutions last year for disability hate crime.

Glasgow Warriors begin their Champion's Cup campaign

:18:46.:18:46.

tonight when they face English Premiership side

:18:47.:18:48.

Head coach Gregor Townsend has admitted his club should have

:18:49.:18:52.

fared better in European competition by now.

:18:53.:18:55.

Retaining their star player on a long-term deal has been

:18:56.:18:57.

a welcome boost ahead of this big match, as Kenny Crawford reports.

:18:58.:19:08.

This is one happy Glasgow warrior, partly because laces are not the

:19:09.:19:15.

only thing he has been tying up recently. Scotland international

:19:16.:19:17.

Stuart Hogg has signed a new contract until 2019, which is his

wife as much as it suits him. Both our parents are just a couple of

:19:25.:19:29.

hours down the road, so it is easy to pop down. The issue goes, happy

:19:30.:19:38.

wife, happy life. If that wasn't the case, I would be in trouble.

:19:39.:19:42.

wife, happy life. If that wasn't the everything seems perfect. But time

:19:43.:19:46.

for a reality check. The Champions Cup is rugby's top European

:19:47.:19:49.

tournament and it replaced the Heineken Cup, which had been running

:19:50.:19:54.

since 1995. But in those 21 years, Glasgow haven't managed to make the

:19:55.:19:57.

conversion from group stage to quarterfinals. Given the rugby we

:19:58.:20:04.

have played throughout the season, especially in the last few seasons,

:20:05.:20:10.

we believe we have not achieved our potential and this is another chance

:20:11.:20:15.

to do better. For that to happen, Townsend's Glasgow must barge their

:20:16.:20:18.

way through a tough group containing last season's cup runners-up, racing

:20:19.:20:24.

92 of France and two clubs who have won the Heineken Cup twice, monster

:20:25.:20:27.

from Ireland and English side Leicester Tigers. Their director of

:20:28.:20:31.

rugby, Richard Cockerill, has voiced concerns about playing on Glasgow's

:20:32.:20:35.

artificial pitch tonight, but Tigers players don't appear to be so

:20:36.:20:41.
