happened -- fire engines. We thought maybe something had happened in the


woods. But my husband went to walk the dog and he found out that I have


had been on fire. We thought, oh, my goodness, New Year's Day, poor

The man and woman, aged 60 and 57, were reported missing yesterday


after failing to return from a day's hill-walking with their dog.


Rescuers say all three spent the night near the summit


of Cairngorm mountain in sub-zero temperatures, and only survived


thanks to the emergency shelter they'd brought with them.


They were found today after a full-scale search involving


police, mountain rescue teams and a coastguard helicopter.


Rescuers say they were lucky to survive. It was -6 up there. The


wind last night would have been 20-20 miles per hour. Not strong


enough by any means, but enough to add a bit of Winchell. They were


very, very cold. Certainly if we hadn't brought them, they would not


have survived another night. A 16-year-old boy has appeared

died at the scene. A BBC Scotland investigation has


found Scotland's publicly-funded elite athletes are drawn


overwhelmingly from middle The research looked at where


athletes went to school. Where data could be found,


it shows that almost nine out of ten of the group either went


to a fee-paying school or a state Our elite athletes have been winning


more medals than ever before. It is a golden start for Great Britain!


Over 500 receives support from sport Scotland, but who are they? There


has long been a suspicion that those on these programmes are


disproportionately from better off on these programmes are


backgrounds. But we asked sport Scotland for a demographic breakdown


of the elite performance athletes. And they said they didn't have one.


So we set out to find out. That meant doing some maths. We used


publicly available information to work out where they went to school.


We found data for over 70% of the over 500 able-bodied athletes that


we fund. We decided to look at what kind of school it was. Was it a


private school? And if it was a state school, was it one that served


better of children? We used free school meals entitlement to measure


that. Over 20% when the fee-paying schools. And almost 70% one of the


best of 20% of state schools. Those two groups represented almost 90% of


the performance athletes. It looks like elite sport is for elites when


it comes to wealth as well as talent. I think anything that comes


from public servers should have generally wide public merit good,


and I'm not convinced that elite sport does that, I'm not entirely


sure that elite sport is something that is accessible to the public in


general is the bike I wanted to know whether sport Scotland believed they


were doing enough to fulfil all athletes' potential. We are working


to get every sport which goes with a pathway from school, the community,


the performance, if they have the talent and they want to go the. We


are winning more than ever. Whether that means we are providing equal


opportunities to everyone who might be able to win is less clear.
