is all from us. Now on BBC One begin joined the

:00:00.:00:00.

Hundreds of women have continued to receive mesh implants -

:00:00.:00:08.

despite calls for operations to be suspended following

:00:09.:00:11.

You trust your doctors, you don't think you're going to be harmed.

:00:12.:00:25.

We'll be asking why is this procedure still being done?

:00:26.:00:27.

Also on the programme, The full report into the death

:00:28.:00:30.

of Aberdeen schoolboy Bailey Gwynne is published -

:00:31.:00:32.

but large sections are heavily redacted.

:00:33.:00:36.

Plans for 600 jobs in the Highlands as the UK's last remaining aluminium

:00:37.:00:39.

after the national side wore poppies to mark Armistice day.

:00:40.:00:52.

And as Andy Murray wins Sports Personality of

:00:53.:00:55.

the year for a third time - is there now a case

:00:56.:00:58.

for considering tennis as Scotland's new national sport?

:00:59.:01:20.

Hundreds of mesh implant operations have been performed

:01:21.:01:23.

in Scotland despite ministers suspending their use

:01:24.:01:25.

because of potential health complications.

:01:26.:01:28.

Figures obtained by the BBC show that more than 400 women have

:01:29.:01:31.

received mesh and mesh tape implants - usually used for pelvic

:01:32.:01:33.

and incontinence problems - since June 2014 when the then health

:01:34.:01:36.

secretary called for their suspension.

:01:37.:01:37.

Our political correspondent Lucy Adams has this exclusive report.

:01:38.:01:50.

Hospital treatment is meant to make patients feel better but not for

:01:51.:02:00.

Gillian who needs crutches to get round. I thought I would be fined.

:02:01.:02:09.

Gillian had a mesh implant in 2011. It is meant to be a standard

:02:10.:02:18.

procedure. You trust your doctor. You don't think you will be harmed.

:02:19.:02:21.

Life as I knew it completely changed. I lost my career and I lost

:02:22.:02:27.

everything. Life was completely destroyed. This is polypropylene,

:02:28.:02:40.

the same material used to wrap newspapers and to make mash

:02:41.:02:48.

implants. It can contract, it can break up in the body, I know of

:02:49.:02:53.

women who have lost their bladder and kidney. How they can put this

:02:54.:03:03.

into bodies I have no idea. It was suspended back in 2014. That was

:03:04.:03:10.

following pleas from women suffering debilitating side-effects. Figures

:03:11.:03:16.

show that more than 400 women have had it since the recommended

:03:17.:03:23.

suspension. The BBC has learned Greater Glasgow health board has

:03:24.:03:29.

conducted 178 of such operations. For some procedures this is the only

:03:30.:03:35.

choice. They either live with their symptoms or have these mesh

:03:36.:03:39.

procedures. So it is their only chance of some benefit and of having

:03:40.:03:44.

a benefit that lets them get out of the house. But this consultant who's

:03:45.:03:53.

been advising the Scottish Government on these procedures says

:03:54.:03:56.

there is at least two other forms of surgery which should be offered but

:03:57.:04:01.

which ministers cannot stop the use of mesh. Only the MHRA could ban it

:04:02.:04:08.

from the whole of the UK but the government could suggest to health

:04:09.:04:15.

boards and clinicians to consider suspending these until we find

:04:16.:04:18.

exactly where the problem lies, is it in the device, the procedure, the

:04:19.:04:27.

surgeons or the patient's? Hundreds of women are taking legal action is.

:04:28.:04:31.

They want answers as to why they received something which had been

:04:32.:04:35.

directed as not to be used until further investigations were carried

:04:36.:04:41.

out. Gillian and Oliver are working together to support other

:04:42.:04:42.

out. Gillian and Oliver are working suffering as a result of these

:04:43.:04:49.

operations. -- Olive are. Or than 400 are taking legal action against

:04:50.:04:53.

health boards and manufacturers but if the procedure continues that

:04:54.:04:54.

figure is expected to keep going up. So given the fact that the Scottish

:04:55.:04:57.

government wants a stop to the use of mesh implants and legal

:04:58.:05:04.

action is being taken why are surgeons still using them,

:05:05.:05:07.

Lucy? It seems complicated on the face of

:05:08.:05:19.

it and to understand it you need to look back at the history. From the

:05:20.:05:24.

1970s through the 1990s surgeons tended to use what was essentially

:05:25.:05:30.

stitches. This developed into using a person's human tissue to create a

:05:31.:05:37.

sling to fix the bladder. 20 years ago, implants came on the scene,

:05:38.:05:41.

they were seen as a great thing, much more effective and easier to

:05:42.:05:45.

use, they could be done in surgery and it made them cheaper. But we had

:05:46.:05:53.

this intervention by the government in 2014. The health board have taken

:05:54.:05:58.

this as guidance. What we know from the responses that I got is some

:05:59.:06:04.

health boards stopped altogether, they said they would wait until the

:06:05.:06:09.

investigations had been done because while they were seen as a great

:06:10.:06:13.

thing, we had women coming forward with severe complications, but the

:06:14.:06:20.

government cannot actually stop them from using these. They can consult

:06:21.:06:28.

with patients, tell them about safety risks and go through that but

:06:29.:06:33.

in exceptional circumstances, if health boards want to go ahead they

:06:34.:06:37.

can still do so. Thank you very much.

:06:38.:06:37.

More doctors and nurses and more services in the community -

:06:38.:06:40.

just a couple of the government's proposals to transform

:06:41.:06:42.

They're contained in a blue-print for change published today.

:06:43.:06:48.

It's a busy day in this West Lothian surgery. Increasingly busy and under

:06:49.:07:05.

pressure, Doctor George Mackie says there are lots of good things about

:07:06.:07:08.

the way the health service is changing but lots of challenges if

:07:09.:07:14.

it is going to be a success. Personally where I work one of the

:07:15.:07:17.

biggest challenges is recruitment. We've advertised recently for a

:07:18.:07:22.

replacement partner and we had no applicants at all. That is where the

:07:23.:07:28.

situation is now. That's the biggest challenge. Recruitment to enhance

:07:29.:07:35.

security services is a priority, say the government. The NHS is going

:07:36.:07:39.

through unprecedented change and the government want to see more people

:07:40.:07:42.

living healthier longer lives at home but that puts a lot of pressure

:07:43.:07:46.

on the front line and community services. It makes a real difference

:07:47.:07:51.

to the character of the building and how you approach things. This is

:07:52.:07:57.

what it may look like, GP hubs with all sorts of services, pharmacists,

:07:58.:08:03.

Cancer support, all sorts of things can be accessed under one roof. The

:08:04.:08:07.

NHS has always looked after people very well if you became sick. If you

:08:08.:08:12.

became diabetic we would offer you good diabetic management. A more

:08:13.:08:18.

interesting question might be, what could be done better to stop people

:08:19.:08:23.

progressing to diabetes in the first place? The government wants to

:08:24.:08:26.

reduce the number of unnecessary stays in hospital, a 10% drop in

:08:27.:08:33.

delayed discharge. It will push forward with unpopular moves to

:08:34.:08:38.

transfer specialisms to bigger centres. Local hospitals will still

:08:39.:08:43.

have the services that people rely on, some of the more specialist

:08:44.:08:47.

services that people might require once or twice in a lifetime, will be

:08:48.:08:53.

organised on a regional basis, so we are asking and tasking boards to

:08:54.:08:58.

plan these on a regional basis. 40% of the budget is spent on health.

:08:59.:09:03.

There's a lot on stake in getting the future of the NHS right.

:09:04.:09:07.

A heavily redacted report into the killing last year of a boy

:09:08.:09:10.

at an Aberdeen school has been released.

:09:11.:09:15.

The conclusions and recommendations were released in October.

:09:16.:09:17.

Our reporter Rebecca Curran is live at the school

:09:18.:09:19.

where Bailey Gwynne was killed, Rebecca.

:09:20.:09:24.

Remind us of the circumstances of this tragedy.

:09:25.:09:27.

16 year old Bailey Gwynne was stabbed during a fight

:09:28.:09:29.

with a fellow pupil here at Cults Academy

:09:30.:09:31.

His killer, who was also 16, is serving nine years

:09:32.:09:35.

A review conducted by child protection expert Andrew Lowe found

:09:36.:09:43.

Bailey's death was "potentially avoidable if those who knew his

:09:44.:09:50.

killer carried weapons had told a teacher."

:09:51.:09:51.

Mr Lowe made 5 conclusions and 21 recommendations in total

:09:52.:09:54.

But the full report was kept private due to data

:09:55.:09:59.

But today the city council released a heavily redacted version.

:10:00.:10:06.

In fact much of the 67 pages look like this.

:10:07.:10:12.

Well, the section on the background of Bailey and his killer

:10:13.:10:18.

who is described as child A has been fully redacted.

:10:19.:10:22.

All information about previous concerns raised about the killer

:10:23.:10:27.

and a complaint that was made have been withheld.

:10:28.:10:30.

The only apparent criticism is levelled at a city

:10:31.:10:33.

councillor for taking part in a media interview.

:10:34.:10:40.

So why has the report been so heacily redacted, Rebecca?

:10:41.:10:42.

Well, in October when the recommendations and conclusions

:10:43.:10:47.

were released, the city council's chief executive Angela Scott said

:10:48.:10:50.

the full report wasn't being published because it contained

:10:51.:10:53.

a great deal of sensitive, confidential and legally

:10:54.:10:57.

Mr Lowe conducted 43 face to face interviews

:10:58.:11:02.

and over the past weeks each person is understood to have been asked

:11:03.:11:06.

if they are happy to have what they said published.

:11:07.:11:08.

What is now apparent is that most of them said no.

:11:09.:11:13.

Now what's not clear is on what grounds any of those

:11:14.:11:16.

If they were allowed to object only on the basis of legal

:11:17.:11:20.

or data protection grounds, or if they could refuse

:11:21.:11:22.

because they were upset or embarrassed to have

:11:23.:11:24.

Plans have been unveiled to create up to 600 jobs and invest ?120m

:11:25.:11:33.

at the site of the UK's last remaining aluminium

:11:34.:11:35.

It's hoped the site could eventually manufacture alloy wheels for cars.

:11:36.:11:40.

It is the last remaining aluminium smelter in the UK, relying on its

:11:41.:11:55.

own hydropower scheme to produce the massive amounts of electricity

:11:56.:11:59.

needed for the process. A review of its assets by the previous owners

:12:00.:12:04.

led to concerns it could be closed with the loss of 170 jobs. Now with

:12:05.:12:09.

the sale of the smelter the future is not only bright spot could be

:12:10.:12:13.

positively booming. Our plan is not to stop aluminium but make

:12:14.:12:19.

components which are very high value products. The first phase is alloy

:12:20.:12:26.

wheels. That creates 300 jobs and many more indirectly. The First

:12:27.:12:34.

Minister was on hand to take part in a traditional Hindu ceremony to mark

:12:35.:12:37.

the takeover by the company which earlier this year bought the former

:12:38.:12:44.

Tata steel plants. With ?120 million investment to be made, direct jobs

:12:45.:12:47.

Tata steel plants. With ?120 million in the supply chain, it is clearly a

:12:48.:12:51.

massive shot in the arm for the area. It does not just guaranteed

:12:52.:12:55.

the future of the aluminium smelter and the power plants and all the

:12:56.:12:59.

jobs associated with those, it heralds a bright new future for

:13:00.:13:03.

manufacturing given the plans to create a new manufacturing facility

:13:04.:13:08.

here, bringing many more jobs in the process. So this is fantastic. This

:13:09.:13:14.

smelter has been here since 1929 and remains one of the most important

:13:15.:13:18.

industrial employers in the Highlands. A good thing for us and

:13:19.:13:24.

the area. Especially myself, I'm in my fourth year here. It is a lot

:13:25.:13:30.

more positive. The chance of me having a job in the future here is

:13:31.:13:35.

excellent and really positive. Moving into making alloy wheels and

:13:36.:13:39.

car components could triple the workforce here in Lochaber. The

:13:40.:13:44.

ultimate aim is to bring steel-making to the Fort William

:13:45.:13:47.

Plant using recycled steel. That could create even more jobs.

:13:48.:13:54.

The Scottish Football Association has been fined more than 15 thousand

:13:55.:13:56.

pounds by the world governing body Fifa after the national side

:13:57.:13:59.

wore poppies during last month's World Cup qualifier

:14:00.:14:01.

Our reporter Alasdair Lamont is at Hampden Park for us tonight.

:14:02.:14:05.

What's been the reaction there, Alasdair?

:14:06.:14:14.

The decision was not an entirely surprising one but nonetheless the

:14:15.:14:20.

reaction has been one of disappointment. The Scottish FA,

:14:21.:14:24.

along with the English FA, had requested permission to wear the

:14:25.:14:28.

poppies in the match which was denied. Fifa said there was a rule

:14:29.:14:34.

over the banning of wearing political symbols. Players wore

:14:35.:14:37.

poppies regardless of that ruling, there was a display among

:14:38.:14:42.

supporters. The Scottish FA has been discussing the matter with its

:14:43.:14:46.

English counterpart but also the other home nations, all of them have

:14:47.:14:52.

been fined for similar reasons. An appeal is increasingly likely. In

:14:53.:14:57.

terms of the finds, the Conservative MP Maurice Corrie gave us this

:14:58.:15:02.

reaction. Frankly, I am appalled at this position, it is disgraceful

:15:03.:15:06.

they've come to that decision, when you think of the commitment many

:15:07.:15:11.

football teams and players made in the waters, the Heart of Midlothian

:15:12.:15:17.

club who went as an entire team to fight in the Great War and sadly

:15:18.:15:23.

many did not come back, I think it is utterly disgraceful. Certainly

:15:24.:15:32.

some strong feeling over the issue and the English FA are standing

:15:33.:15:36.

their ground, saying that they will appeal. The Scottish FA stood

:15:37.:15:41.

shoulder to shoulder with the English, it would be surprising if

:15:42.:15:46.

they backed down. I would expect an appeal to going. -- go end.

:15:47.:15:52.

You're watching BBC Reporting Scotland.

:15:53.:15:57.

Hundreds of women have received mesh implants -

:15:58.:16:02.

despite calls for operations to be suspended following

:16:03.:16:04.

A look at how work is progressing to restore the Glasgow School of Art

:16:05.:16:10.

after it was devastated by fire two years ago.

:16:11.:16:17.

The Prime Minister says she will look "very seriously"

:16:18.:16:18.

at proposals put forward by the Scottish Government

:16:19.:16:21.

The Prime Minister says she will look "very seriously"

:16:22.:16:23.

at proposals put forward by the Scottish Government

:16:24.:16:25.

on Brexit, but has stressed the negotiations to leave the EU

:16:26.:16:27.

Theresa May was speaking ahead of tomorrow's publication

:16:28.:16:31.

of the Scottish government's priorities for Brexit.

:16:32.:16:33.

Our political correspondent David Porter is at Westminster tonight.

:16:34.:16:37.

Jackie, tomorrow as you say the Scottish Government will publish its

:16:38.:16:48.

proposals for Brexit, and crucially it will look at the area of the

:16:49.:16:52.

single market, and the idea that perhaps Scotland could remain part

:16:53.:16:57.

of the single market, while the rest of the UK leaves the European Union.

:16:58.:17:02.

Now that is very important, because a recent study suggested that 80,000

:17:03.:17:07.

jobs could be lost in Scotland, if Scotland was forced out of the

:17:08.:17:11.

single market in the future. Ahead of the publication of that document

:17:12.:17:15.

today the First Minister Nicola Sturgeon rang the Prime Minister

:17:16.:17:19.

Theresa May and it is likely she outlined in very general terms the

:17:20.:17:22.

Scottish Government will be putting forward tomorrow. Coincidentally in

:17:23.:17:28.

the Commons this afternoon, the Prime Minister was answering

:17:29.:17:32.

questions on all things Brexit, and she was challenged to fully engage

:17:33.:17:37.

with the Scottish Government over the whole issue. The Prime Minister

:17:38.:17:41.

has said she will seriously engage with the Scottish Government, which

:17:42.:17:46.

is to be welcomed. She says she has a respect agenda so will the Prime

:17:47.:17:49.

Minister to meet with the First Minister to incorporate priorities

:17:50.:17:55.

of the Scottish Government in the UK negotiating position? I took a call

:17:56.:17:58.

from the First Minister this morning where I assured her we will oppose

:17:59.:18:01.

seriously other proposals the Scottish Government is bringing

:18:02.:18:04.

forward. I welcome the fact they have been looking at their

:18:05.:18:08.

priorities. We have been encouraging for the devolved administrations to

:18:09.:18:10.

look at their priorities so they can be taken into account in the UK

:18:11.:18:16.

negotiations on leaving the European Union. The Prime Minister says she

:18:17.:18:20.

is keen to hear the ideas of the devolved administrations and they

:18:21.:18:22.

can go forward to something called the joint ministerial committee that

:18:23.:18:27.

will be meeting early again next year. But Jackie tomorrow we will

:18:28.:18:30.

get a far clearer idea of how the Scottish Government sees this

:18:31.:18:31.

process going forward. A look at other stories

:18:32.:18:33.

from across the country... 2016 has been a record year for fish

:18:34.:18:44.

landings in Shetland. More than 357,000 boxes have been brought

:18:45.:18:49.

ashore between the markets. Such high levels have not been seen since

:18:50.:18:55.

1987. Shetland is the second biggest port in the UK for white fish

:18:56.:18:59.

landings after Peterhead. A controversial flood prevention

:19:00.:19:03.

scheme for white sands in Dumfries has been approved by Dumfries and

:19:04.:19:06.

Galloway Council. The project to build an embankment and glass wall

:19:07.:19:10.

along the ribbon if that considerable opposition because of

:19:11.:19:12.

the impact on the Riverview and the loss of car parking. A rogue plug

:19:13.:19:19.

fitted to an Edinburgh bench excluding the members of a golf club

:19:20.:19:23.

which bans women from sitting on it is to be removed by the council. The

:19:24.:19:27.

sign on the Princes Street bench said it was fitted on behalf of the

:19:28.:19:31.

female population of Edinburgh. Muirfield golf club decided against

:19:32.:19:37.

allowing women to become members last summer. More than 17,500 air

:19:38.:19:43.

weapons have been handed into Police Scotland over the last six months as

:19:44.:19:47.

part a nationwide amnesty. Legislation comes into force next

:19:48.:19:53.

week, which requires anyone wanting to keep for an air weapon to apply

:19:54.:19:57.

for a licence. Over 10,000 applications have been made so far.

:19:58.:20:01.

Prestwick airport could have loans totalling ?40 million from the

:20:02.:20:07.

Scottish Government by 2018, after ministers port the struggling

:20:08.:20:07.

business for a time three years ago. business for a time three years ago.

:20:08.:20:12.

-- bought the struggling business. It is hoped the airport could become

:20:13.:20:16.

the UK's first spaceport launch site and benefit from the new Heathrow

:20:17.:20:19.

runway by becoming a logistics hub. It's been quite a year

:20:20.:20:22.

for Andy Murray. As well as becoming a father

:20:23.:20:24.

for the first time, he's become the world's number one,

:20:25.:20:27.

won Wimbledon for a second time, won a second Olympic gold and become

:20:28.:20:29.

the first person to win the BBC's Sports Personality of

:20:30.:20:32.

the Year for a third time. It's also been a year to remember

:20:33.:20:34.

for Scottish tennis in general. So is there a case to be made

:20:35.:20:37.

for considering Tennis And the BBC Sports Personality

:20:38.:20:40.

of the Year 2016 is Andy Murray. CHEERING

:20:41.:21:05.

Another win for Andy Murray, but he's not our only tennis world

:21:06.:21:08.

Another win for Andy Murray, but beater. Brother Jamie is one half of

:21:09.:21:11.

the top doubles pairing, and Gordon Reid is another one in the

:21:12.:21:15.

wheelchair singles, so should tennis be our national sport? At this club

:21:16.:21:23.

was actual drum's Christmas party, a unanimous if partial view. The

:21:24.:21:25.

National sport Scotland should be tennis. Because we are far more

:21:26.:21:30.

successful at it than any other sport. Yet there is unlikely to be a

:21:31.:21:37.

Big Bash proclaiming tennis the national sport because of a national

:21:38.:21:41.

obsession. I think the criteria for a national sport is the one that

:21:42.:21:45.

garners most interest across every community, and football scores

:21:46.:21:48.

hugely high on that. We know for example that per capita more people

:21:49.:21:52.

go to professional football in Scotland than any of the other

Scotland alone excels, that's right, Sinn T. -- that is right, shinty. As

shinty falls down. We don't have an official national sport and we

OK but other bits are really badly cracked. Some of these stones are

about a metre by a meter, so they are massive, like, lumps of stone,

so they can be cut down and you can maybe get two or three smaller

challenging. Many of the materials Macintosh used are now no longer

available. A good example is the Timbers that by going into the roof

behind us. They are Southern yellow pine, which is not indigenous to

:24:25.:24:28.

Scotland, but it was quite prevalent in Scotland when the building was

built in the 1900, and we have discovered somewhere in

:24:34.:24:36.

Massachusetts where there is an old mill that has been demolished, which

:24:37.:24:39.

has Timbers of a similar age, similar scale to what we need, and

we are going to transfer them over. As the restoration continues onside,
