in connection with the attempted murder of two police officers.

:00:00.:00:10.

ScotRail are fined almost ?500,000 for failing to meet

:00:11.:00:16.

performance targets, including on cleanliness.

:00:17.:00:24.

The Independence Camp protestors outside the Scottish Parliament have

:00:25.:00:26.

The parents of the missing French student Antoine Maury

:00:27.:00:29.

appeal for his return, saying they're desperate.

:00:30.:00:35.

All we want is for him to turn up, to show up and find him so we can go

:00:36.:00:41.

ahead with our lives and he can be the happy young man that he is.

:00:42.:00:45.

A new lease of life for this retired rescue helicopter -

:00:46.:00:48.

providing glamorous camping accommodation.

:00:49.:01:00.

Three men have now been arrested in connection with the attempted

:01:01.:01:04.

murder of two police officers in Glasgow.

:01:05.:01:07.

They're expected to appear in court on Monday.

:01:08.:01:09.

The officers were struck by a car while they attended a call-out

:01:10.:01:12.

in the north of the city on Sunday night.

:01:13.:01:15.

On Sunday night at around 11:15pm, two officers were called to a

:01:16.:01:28.

disturbance here in Knightswood and then deliberately hit higher car.

:01:29.:01:33.

They were seriously injured after being run over by a blue Nissan, and

:01:34.:01:39.

they were both taken to hospital. The 30-year-old woman officer was so

:01:40.:01:42.

badly hurt she was treated in intensive care. And as the officers

:01:43.:01:49.

had lain on the road, hurt, that balloonists and was driven away,

:01:50.:01:53.

hitting parked cars, including the police car, as it went. Police have

:01:54.:01:58.

today arrested three men in connection with the attempted murder

:01:59.:02:02.

of the officers, a 28-year-old man this morning and a 24-year-old and

:02:03.:02:09.

30-year-old man this afternoon. The 30-year-old is David Maclean, who

:02:10.:02:12.

detectives issued a photo of earlier today and were very keen to trace.

:02:13.:02:18.

The woman police officer, although out of intensive care, remains in

:02:19.:02:19.

hospital. ScotRail has been fined almost

:02:20.:02:20.

?500,000 for failing to meet required standards

:02:21.:02:23.

for trains and stations. The inspection results follow

:02:24.:02:24.

criticism of the franchise for delayed, cancelled

:02:25.:02:26.

and overcrowded trains. What exactly are ScotRail

:02:27.:02:28.

being fined for? This is another rap across the

:02:29.:02:53.

knuckles for ScotRail. They have already been told by the Scottish

:02:54.:02:58.

Government that they must improve on what are called their hard

:02:59.:03:01.

performance targets, things like reducing the number of trains that

:03:02.:03:07.

are late, reducing delays and cancellations on their services,

:03:08.:03:09.

reducing the amount of overcrowding cancellations on their services,

:03:10.:03:14.

on their trains. But they are also assessed on what are called soft

:03:15.:03:19.

performance targets. Inspectors go onto the trains and walk around

:03:20.:03:23.

stations and ask difficult questions. They look at things like,

:03:24.:03:28.

do the ticket machines work, how clean on the train toilets, are the

:03:29.:03:32.

announcements clear enough, what is customer service like? It would seem

:03:33.:03:36.

that on those performance indicators, ScotRail is also

:03:37.:03:42.

struggling. In July, August and September, ScotRail did not meet

:03:43.:03:46.

targets in five out of 17 performance areas when it comes to

:03:47.:03:52.

stations, and when it comes to trains, they failed on ten out of 17

:03:53.:03:57.

measures. The end result is that ScotRail has been hit with an

:03:58.:04:02.

enormous fine of almost half ?1 million, which will now be

:04:03.:04:07.

reinvested in the rail network, but which will, of course, hit ScotRail

:04:08.:04:13.

and their parent company's profits. Any response from the government?

:04:14.:04:23.

Well, the Scottish Government says that these performance indicators

:04:24.:04:27.

and performance targets are a key part of their effort to try to

:04:28.:04:33.

improve the passenger experience. They say it is the toughest testing

:04:34.:04:38.

regime of its kind in the UK and that changes will have to be made,

:04:39.:04:43.

and that transport Scotland, their agency, will now approach ScotRail

:04:44.:04:49.

to get answers, clear indications about how things are going to

:04:50.:04:53.

improve. As far as ScotRail are concerned, they have said tonight

:04:54.:04:57.

they will never stop striving to deliver. They point to long-term

:04:58.:05:03.

spending of almost half ?1 billion to introduce new carriages,

:05:04.:05:07.

refurbished carriages, and things like improved Wi-Fi on the trains.

:05:08.:05:11.

But I think they now know that it is the day-to-day performance, the

:05:12.:05:17.

day-to-day service that now has to improve.

:05:18.:05:21.

Independence campaigners holding a vigil outside

:05:22.:05:22.

the Scottish Parliament have lost their appeal against eviction.

:05:23.:05:24.

The Court of Session upheld an earlier ruling

:05:25.:05:26.

Steven Godden is at the Scottish Parliament.

:05:27.:05:36.

Defiant, determined but almost out of options. The pledge from those

:05:37.:05:44.

running the camp was that it would remain until Scotland was declared

:05:45.:05:49.

independent. But today the Bell told, as judges threw out an appeal

:05:50.:05:56.

over plans to evict them. Hello again. The handful of people at the

:05:57.:06:01.

camp today did not want to be interviewed, but the sense here was

:06:02.:06:05.

one of defiance, and as far as they are concerned, today's judgment has

:06:06.:06:11.

not changed anything. Ever since it first appeared, Holyrood's corporate

:06:12.:06:15.

body have wanted the camp removed, arguing it was unlicensed and a

:06:16.:06:19.

threat to Parliament's neutrality. But when they were ordered to leave,

:06:20.:06:24.

the campers took their case to the Court of Session, claiming their

:06:25.:06:27.

human rights had been breached. Seven months of legal argument would

:06:28.:06:32.

follow, social media projecting and often surreal courtroom to the wider

:06:33.:06:37.

world. It is based on the declaration of Arbroath and the act

:06:38.:06:40.

of union. There are spiritual arguments based on the idea that

:06:41.:06:44.

Jesus has returned to Earth and is campaigning for Scottish

:06:45.:06:47.

independence. But there is a serious issue of human rights at the basis

:06:48.:06:52.

of the case and that was what the judgment was about. Today's ruling

:06:53.:06:56.

gives the authorities the right to apply for a court order to clear the

:06:57.:07:00.

camp. We will apply for the order and it will probably take several

:07:01.:07:04.

days. As soon as we are in possession of that, we will seek to

:07:05.:07:07.

remove the campers if they have not left voluntarily. Our preference is

:07:08.:07:11.

that they respect the ruling and leave the site. The campers say that

:07:12.:07:17.

fundamentally this has been about their right to protest. The Scottish

:07:18.:07:21.

Parliament say they will discuss finding an alternative way to allow

:07:22.:07:24.

that, but only once the camp has gone.

:07:25.:07:28.

The family of a missing French student say they can think of no

:07:29.:07:31.

Police believe Antoine Maury may have become disorientated

:07:32.:07:35.

after leaving friends on Monday evening.

:07:36.:07:36.

They have been searching Holyrood Park after what they describe

:07:37.:07:39.

as credible sightings of a topless man spotted there on Monday evening.

:07:40.:07:42.

In our eyes, everything is OK, we just want him to come back. Laura

:07:43.:07:59.

and Pascal flew into Edinburgh to assist police with their

:08:00.:08:03.

investigation. It is four days since Antoine went missing. His parents

:08:04.:08:07.

say he loved Scotland and wanted to live here. We spoke to him last week

:08:08.:08:12.

on Thursday. He was extremely happy to be here. Every time I heard him

:08:13.:08:16.

on the phone he was very happy to be here. He was succeeding in his

:08:17.:08:22.

exams. He was very interested in what he was doing. This is where

:08:23.:08:27.

Antoine studied. The Edinburgh college campuses about one mile from

:08:28.:08:31.

Holyrood Park. He was with friends on Monday night who said he was in

:08:32.:08:34.

good spirits before he suddenly left. There is no suggestion of any

:08:35.:08:41.

acrimony, any arguments. He went along the road, along to the back of

:08:42.:08:49.

the golf course, we think. We found clothing within the golf course area

:08:50.:08:54.

again, which ties in with the sighting that we are looking into.

:08:55.:08:59.

The focus of the police investigation this week has been

:09:00.:09:05.

around the lock. Teams of divers have been out and search dogs have

:09:06.:09:10.

been in the area and officers have carried out door-to-door enquiries.

:09:11.:09:13.

Police have two sightings of a topless man seen in this area at

:09:14.:09:17.

around 10:45pm on Monday evening. One is here, and the other is just a

:09:18.:09:24.

little further along the road. This afternoon, his parents asked people

:09:25.:09:28.

to check their sheds and Garrard shoes, in case their son has sought

:09:29.:09:31.

shelter there. But they acknowledge it has been difficult to cope. My

:09:32.:09:38.

son is missing. I have two children, one of my children is missing. How

:09:39.:09:48.

can I feel? I am devastated. Tomorrow, the family say they will

:09:49.:09:51.

organise a search of the area with family and college friends.

:09:52.:09:54.

Farming leaders have been setting out their vision for how

:09:55.:09:57.

the industry should be supported once the UK leaves

:09:58.:10:00.

Most of Scotland's land is classified as "less favoured"

:10:01.:10:02.

and farmers say without subsidies they just couldn't exist.

:10:03.:10:04.

Life is not easy for Joyce Campbell on her remote sheep farm on the

:10:05.:10:26.

north coast of Scotland. The quality of her meat is high. She is Scottish

:10:27.:10:31.

sheep farmer of the year, but that standard can only be achieved, she

:10:32.:10:34.

says, because her farm is subsidised. All of the Glens and

:10:35.:10:39.

small crofting townships like this are really reliant, anybody

:10:40.:10:44.

producing sheep and cattle, are reliant on the subsidies to keep

:10:45.:10:50.

going. We spend money with a conscience, a social conscience, and

:10:51.:10:57.

that money is spent in our local shops. Farming subsidies are

:10:58.:11:02.

guaranteed until 2020, even after Brexit, but after that, everything

:11:03.:11:08.

is up for grabs. It is not just farmers who have a stake in the

:11:09.:11:13.

system. Much of the funding pays for schemes which enhance our natural

:11:14.:11:16.

surroundings. And this man once the environment, rather than farming, to

:11:17.:11:23.

be what drives future policy. We now understand that land produces so

:11:24.:11:26.

much more than commodities. It produces a range of environmental

:11:27.:11:30.

goods and services. Flood prevention is topical, but there is carbon

:11:31.:11:35.

sequestration, biodiversity value, tourism and recreation, it host of

:11:36.:11:36.

things. I think animals on hills is tourism and recreation, it host of

:11:37.:11:42.

better than butterflies. But there is a balance between environment and

:11:43.:11:49.

asked a every food. At its annual conference near Perth, the Scottish

:11:50.:11:52.

Secretary David Mundell told farmers the next few years will be difficult

:11:53.:11:56.

for rural communities as they adapt to life outside the EU. He urged

:11:57.:11:59.

for rural communities as they adapt farmers to shout loudly for their

:12:00.:12:04.

industry. I want to see a support system that supports agriculture in

:12:05.:12:09.

Scotland and across the UK in an appropriate way. This is an

:12:10.:12:13.

opportunity for us to fashion our own system. It will be a long time

:12:14.:12:20.

before the UK agrees and agricultural policy for post-Brexit.

:12:21.:12:25.

Today was about NFU Scotland and others setting out their stalls for

:12:26.:12:28.

how it should look. The daily struggle on this hillside just got

:12:29.:12:32.

harder, and not just for the farmers.

:12:33.:12:35.

:12:49.:12:55.

A plane was diverted and escorted to land under military escort

:12:56.:12:58.

The flight had lost contact with air traffic control,

:12:59.:13:04.

which led to RAF Typhoon jets being scrambled.

:13:05.:13:07.

People along the west coast heard sonic booms

:13:08.:13:10.

as the jets went supersonic, breaking the sound barrier.

:13:11.:13:13.

Graham Stewart is at Prestwick for us tonight.

:13:14.:13:16.

Graham, those on board are safe but what caused this alert?

:13:17.:13:28.

Well, you may be able to make out the tail-lights of the plane in

:13:29.:13:35.

question behind me. This was a brand-new plane, operated by the

:13:36.:13:41.

Mexican low-cost airline. It was on its way from its manufacturing base

:13:42.:13:46.

in France to reactivate in Iceland. The alarm was raised this afternoon

:13:47.:13:51.

when it lost contact with air traffic control and immediately RAF

:13:52.:13:56.

Typhoon jets were dispatched from RAF Lossiemouth, and also from a

:13:57.:14:01.

base in Lincolnshire. These jets are on stand-by 24 hours data guard

:14:02.:14:05.

British skies against possible terrorist attack. As you say, they

:14:06.:14:10.

are authorised to operate at supersonic speeds and people have

:14:11.:14:13.

been getting in touch to say they heard the sonic boom across the

:14:14.:14:20.

North of Scotland. Communication was re-established and the RAF jet from

:14:21.:14:24.

Lossiemouth escorted the plane to Glasgow Prestwick airport where it

:14:25.:14:29.

landed at a roundabout 4pm. A number of roads in the area were closed as

:14:30.:14:33.

a precaution and have since been reopened. I can tell you tonight

:14:34.:14:37.

that the airfield has been reopened and Basinger journeys are getting

two years to complete. It's a suitably strange and scary

:15:24.:15:28.

story for Halloween. In 1954, police were called

:15:29.:15:32.

to a disturbance in a Glasgow cemetery where they found

:15:33.:15:36.

hundreds of children, many armed with home made weapons,

:15:37.:15:39.

searching, they claimed More than 60 years later,

:15:40.:15:41.

the Gorbals Vampire has become a stage play,

:15:42.:15:48.

with a huge community cast. Our Arts Correspondent,

:15:49.:15:51.

Pauline McLean, reports. It's the perfect tale for Halloween.

:15:52.:16:09.

A Scottish graveyard in the shadow of a steelworks, and the possibility

:16:10.:16:16.

of a vampire with iron teeth. 200 kids decided to descend upon the

:16:17.:16:19.

necropolis because they hear that there is a vampire that is called

:16:20.:16:24.

two of their classmates. ASBO in the graveyard, they start to see a hand

:16:25.:16:30.

appear behind the tombstone. -- as they are in the graveyard.

:16:31.:16:33.

What makes the story even stranger is that it true. Police were called

:16:34.:16:38.

to the Southern Necropolis in Glasgow in 1954 to disperse the

:16:39.:16:43.

crowds. Tommy Smith was among them, just seven years old he had tagged

:16:44.:16:47.

along with his aunt will stop once we got -- tagged along with his

:16:48.:16:53.

aunt. Once we got to the graveyard, there were sticks, pots, pans.

:16:54.:17:06.

Anything. There were flames going up into the night sky. There were

:17:07.:17:11.

shadows over the trees in the graveyard, they were all moving

:17:12.:17:14.

about. Politician that the time blamed

:17:15.:17:17.

American comics and brought in tough new laws to ban them. For more than

:17:18.:17:22.

half a century later, the story of the Gorbals Vampire lives on. This

:17:23.:17:28.

comic made by local schoolchildren is part of a huge project. The thing

:17:29.:17:34.

comic made by local schoolchildren I love is the idea of a vampire in

:17:35.:17:37.

your community and Glasgow's reaction to that is that they're not

:17:38.:17:41.

going to hide under houses, they're going to go and get it.

:17:42.:17:49.

I'm so excited. It was six years ago and I feel excited as I did that

:17:50.:17:53.

today. Maybe more! The Scotland football team has

:17:54.:18:00.

a better chance of beating England next month if Celtic's captain,

:18:01.:18:03.

Scott Brown, is involved. That's according to Scotland's

:18:04.:18:05.

assistant manager. Brown had retired from

:18:06.:18:07.

international football, but two months later he's

:18:08.:18:09.

had a change of heart, COMMENTATOR: Brown, 1-0! Since Scott

:18:10.:18:26.

Brown's international retirement 70 days ago, his club form has

:18:27.:18:31.

blossomed. Just yesterday he will that a return to the Scotland fold

:18:32.:18:35.

for the game against England. -- he pulled out a return.

:18:36.:18:39.

Here's hoping Scotland do really well. I wish God and all the best.

:18:40.:18:46.

But not only can Gordon Strachan rely on Brown calves support, he can

:18:47.:18:52.

also call on his considerable international experience. That began

:18:53.:18:56.

exactly almost 11 years ago as he made his debut as a substitute under

:18:57.:19:01.

Walter Smith. He went on to amass 50 caps, scoring four goals in the

:19:02.:19:08.

process. His recent absence has been keenly felt.

:19:09.:19:10.

I was disappointed when he announced his retirement. Arguably he is the

:19:11.:19:14.

best player in Scotland. He's certainly the best Scottish play at

:19:15.:19:20.

the moment, think. I think if we have our absolute best players

:19:21.:19:23.

available it can only help us. Arguably, in the last campaign he

:19:24.:19:27.

was our most significant player. But that campaign ended in failure.

:19:28.:19:31.

Sidibe Scottish public believe bringing Brownback is the right

:19:32.:19:38.

call? I think some players have been poor recently but Brown is

:19:39.:19:41.

definitely a good one. I don't think we'll win, but I think it is a good

:19:42.:19:48.

choice. I think we would definitely push them on. He's got a lot of

:19:49.:19:54.

experience, a lot of national experience. It's whether it's

:19:55.:19:59.

enough. Scott Brown may well improve the Scotland team. But doing so

:20:00.:20:04.

sufficiently to beat England is a different matter altogether.

:20:05.:20:07.

Rugby league is not a sport greatly known in Scotland.

:20:08.:20:09.

However, our national team has a massive challenge ahead.

:20:10.:20:11.

It's taking on the top three teams in the world -

:20:12.:20:14.

New Zealand, Australia and England - to contest the Four Nations trophy.

:20:15.:20:17.

Three giant in the rugby league world. And Scotland. The Scots are

:20:18.:20:34.

making their debut in the competition after winning the 2014

:20:35.:20:39.

European Cup. So how did they view the task in hand? It's a daunting

:20:40.:20:42.

task. Playing the three best teams in the world. We just want a

:20:43.:20:49.

challenge and to try and give our all give 110% for Scotland. Scotland

:20:50.:20:55.

begin their campaign tonight against world number two sides Australia.

:20:56.:20:59.

The Scots are ranked ninth, but still holds some concern for the

:21:00.:21:04.

Aussies. Scotland, the danger is the unknown about them. We know a few of

:21:05.:21:08.

the guys in their team who play out in Australia, but I don't think

:21:09.:21:11.

there will be too many people who think they can beat us this weekend,

:21:12.:21:15.

which is a danger for our team. If we go into that much complacent,

:21:16.:21:18.

there's a chance they could knock us over. It's telling that no team

:21:19.:21:23.

about this poor's big three have ever won a game in four editions of

:21:24.:21:28.

the Four Nations. A challenge not lost on the Scotland coach Doc Green

:21:29.:21:31.

I think it's probably one of the biggest challenges. As always, the

:21:32.:21:37.
