The SNP accuses Theresa May of pursuing

The Prime Minister says the Scottish Goverment's

worst was eating cabbage for breakfast.

supermarket aisles for people who want to take things

:00:38.:00:42.

And, an injury scare for Andy Murray -

:00:43.:00:45.

but he still managed a straight sets win in the Australian Open.

:00:46.:01:03.

The SNP has accused the Prime Minister of pursuing

:01:04.:01:09.

a "Little Britain Brexit" - which would hit jobs

:01:10.:01:11.

During Prime Minister's questions she was quizzed on what her plans

:01:12.:01:17.

to take the UK out of the single market would mean.

:01:18.:01:19.

However Mrs May said Scottish government proposals

:01:20.:01:22.

would be taken seriously, but that the biggest

:01:23.:01:24.

threat to the economy here was the the nationalist threat

:01:25.:01:27.

Our Westminster correspondent Nick Eardley reports.

:01:28.:01:39.

Britain, Britain, Britain. Why would you ever want to leave? Probably not

:01:40.:01:46.

the Brexit Britain Theresa May envisages but not everyone is

:01:47.:01:50.

impressed with her vision for life outside the EU. This German

:01:51.:01:54.

newspaper thinks the Prime Minister is leading Britain into isolation,

:01:55.:01:59.

and image borrowed by the SNP to raise domestic concerns. Concerns

:02:00.:02:04.

over what leaving the EU single market could mean for Scottish

:02:05.:02:08.

businesses and the money in your pocket. When the forecast for

:02:09.:02:15.

people'sincome is as likely to drop by ?2000, and that 80,000... That

:02:16.:02:23.

80,000 people may lose their jobs in Scotland as a result of the hard

:02:24.:02:27.

Tory Brexit plan of the Prime Minister. Does the Prime Minister

:02:28.:02:36.

believe that this is a price worth paying for her Little Britain

:02:37.:02:42.

Brexit? We will be working to ensure we get the best deal in terms of

:02:43.:02:46.

access to the single market and continuing to cooperate in

:02:47.:02:51.

partnership with member states of the EU. His party is dedicated to

:02:52.:02:58.

taking Scotland out of the single market by taking it out of the

:02:59.:03:04.

United Kingdom. Scottish Government proposals will be considered at a

:03:05.:03:08.

meeting tomorrow, the PM added. There are elements of the Scottish

:03:09.:03:12.

Government's plan ministers in London agree with. Access to the

:03:13.:03:17.

single market will be on the table, but membership, the Scottish

:03:18.:03:21.

Government's key demand, is not something the UK Government thinks

:03:22.:03:25.

feasible. It is clear Scotland cannot be a member of the single

:03:26.:03:31.

market if it is not a member of the EU, and the UK will not be a member

:03:32.:03:35.

of the EU. Theresa May arrived in Davos to sell her vision of a global

:03:36.:03:40.

Britain to the World Economic Forum. She hopes they and you the voters

:03:41.:03:45.

buy into her vision of a brighter future. Her opponents are worried

:03:46.:03:48.

though that storm clouds are gathering. Some news tonight about

:03:49.:03:56.

the Supreme Court Brexit Case? That is right. Next week the highest

:03:57.:04:00.

court in the land will deliver its verdict on who can start the formal

:04:01.:04:04.

process of leaving the EU. The UK Government appeals a decision that

:04:05.:04:08.

the parliament behind me needs to vote. Ministers in London think

:04:09.:04:13.

their executive powers are enough. The Scottish Government will watch

:04:14.:04:18.

the verdict with anticipation because their top law officer argued

:04:19.:04:22.

the impact of Brexit on devolved areas means Holyrood should have a

:04:23.:04:27.

say in that process. We will find out on Tuesday what role the UK

:04:28.:04:31.

Parliament and perhaps the Scottish Parliament play in triggering

article 15. Hundreds of jobs are going

:04:33.:04:37.

in the banking sector with Clydesdale announcing tonight

:04:38.:04:41.

that it's shutting It comes on the day of mixed

:04:42.:04:43.

economic news for Scotland with high street sales up but unemployment

:04:44.:04:47.

rising last autumn. Our Business and Economy

:04:48.:04:49.

Editor, Douglas Fraser The Clydesdale bank has identified

:04:50.:05:00.

40 branches it intends to close in Scotland with 200 job losses and

:05:01.:05:05.

roughly the same size of cuts with its Yorkshire Bank branded England.

:05:06.:05:10.

The Airdrie savings bank told staff it will close its doors at its

:05:11.:05:14.

remaining three branches with 70 jobs lost. Deposits for 40,000

:05:15.:05:21.

savers are safe, loans will be transferred to TSB. It is winding up

:05:22.:05:27.

after 182 years and as Britain's last independent savings bank will

:05:28.:05:33.

stop it makes my blood boil, the fat cats, City of London, who brought

:05:34.:05:38.

the financial crash upon us, walk away with big bonuses, and the

:05:39.:05:42.

people who ran the Airdrie savings bank, many on a voluntary basis,

:05:43.:05:47.

have to face this closure because of the regulation resulting from the

:05:48.:05:57.

greed of the fat cats in London. Retailers said they had a Merry

:05:58.:06:03.

Christmas in years perhaps because shoppers and businesses expect

:06:04.:06:07.

inflation so best to get big purchases in early. British pay rose

:06:08.:06:10.

in the year to November by an average 2.8%. What about jobs? The

:06:11.:06:17.

latest survey covers autumn and shows a rise of 11,000 more Scots

:06:18.:06:26.

looking for work taking the total to 139,000, an unemployment rate of

:06:27.:06:31.

5.1% while the UK rate is at its lowest for more than a decade. The

:06:32.:06:41.

number of Scots in work... For those creating their own companies it pays

:06:42.:06:42.

to be adaptable. It might still be an uncertain time

:06:43.:06:51.

for Scotland's economy, but despite challenges facing the job markets,

:06:52.:06:55.

necessity is still the mother of invention. This storage company in

:06:56.:07:01.

Paisley is typical of many across the country. It is doing very well.

:07:02.:07:07.

Most of its customers are small businesses, some of them newly

:07:08.:07:10.

launched, who need to store materials or goods at a cheap price.

:07:11.:07:16.

It is doing so well, above these storage units it has launched a

:07:17.:07:21.

suite of offices for hire on a monthly bases aimed at companies

:07:22.:07:25.

unsure what the future holds long-term. We try to take away

:07:26.:07:29.

uncertainty and hope the business comes in and takes the space for a

:07:30.:07:36.

month, grow the business, bring it back down in size again, to try to

:07:37.:07:39.

make it work for them. This small company is typical of those who

:07:40.:07:43.

moved in. The best option for them as they map out their future. It

:07:44.:07:47.

makes it better for me in the long run that I do not pay out a lot of

:07:48.:07:53.

money on a big fancy building, and rent a big space that I will maybe

:07:54.:07:59.

not be able to fill. The number of storage companies has jumped in

:08:00.:08:03.

Scotland, providing a secure route through the

:08:04.:08:04.

Yet more numbers today from the Scottish government,

:08:05.:08:08.

showing sluggish growth in output from across the economy.

:08:09.:08:12.

It grew only a fifth of one percent from July to September, and the same

:08:13.:08:15.

The UK economy's been growing at three times that pace.

:08:16.:08:21.

Another factor could be constitutional uncertainty,

:08:22.:08:29.

not only about Brexit but also about Scotland's future.

:08:30.:08:31.

The Scottish government has been defeat in parliament this evening

:08:32.:08:39.

on its plans to abolish the Highlands and Islands

:08:40.:08:41.

During a Conservative-led debate - opposition MSPs said the plan

:08:42.:08:46.

But ministers say they're wanting to make changes

:08:47.:08:50.

Our political correspondent Andrew Kerr has the story.

:08:51.:09:00.

It is not just the carrots that are for the chop. Ministers want to get

:09:01.:09:07.

rid of the board of Highlands and Islands enterprise and merge it with

:09:08.:09:12.

that of Scottish enterprise. Local decision-making will still take

:09:13.:09:16.

place, they say. This distributor near Inverness has been helped by

:09:17.:09:21.

grants administered by the board and general business support. It was

:09:22.:09:25.

formed almost 15 years ago and from the outset, H ie helped us in all

:09:26.:09:31.

sorts of aspects of business improvement from marketing, brand

:09:32.:09:38.

work, to best practice, process innovation, things like that.

:09:39.:09:43.

Ministers say the change will boost growth will stop the Conservatives

:09:44.:09:47.

say it is about centralisation. It is the board that makes HIE special,

:09:48.:09:54.

having a separate board allows HIE to use experience and expertise of

:09:55.:09:58.

business leaders to further its aims. Labour back them. The more

:09:59.:10:02.

digging we do on this the more it seems clear they are making it up as

:10:03.:10:08.

they go along. They're only aim is centralisation, ignoring the needs

:10:09.:10:12.

of the Highlands and Islands. The economy secretary said he is not

:10:13.:10:16.

getting rid of Highlands and Islands enterprise or HIE for short. We will

:10:17.:10:24.

also protect local decision-making, management and delivery. HIE will

:10:25.:10:33.

not be abolished. Yes, 64, no, 63. With no abstentions, the motion as

:10:34.:10:38.

amended as agreed. The government was defeated with MSPs calling for

:10:39.:10:43.

the decision to abolish the board to be reversed. It is believed

:10:44.:10:46.

ministers will seek cross-party talks to find a way forward, but the

:10:47.:10:51.

opposition said the Scottish Government must listen to the will

:10:52.:10:52.

of Parliament. A government scheme to compensate

:10:53.:10:56.

rail passengers with free tickets following criticism of rail services

:10:57.:10:58.

may not go ahead unless Holyrood's rural economy committee

:10:59.:11:01.

heard today that Abellio Scotrail and Transport Scotland

:11:02.:11:11.

are still discussing how to implement the free week

:11:12.:11:13.

for season ticket holders, which was announced in the Scottish

:11:14.:11:15.

Government's draft budget. It's one idea being considered

:11:16.:11:18.

by ministers preparing a plan to meet Scotland's

:11:19.:11:24.

climate change targets. The technology is already being used

:11:25.:11:27.

in Norway in a scheme built Our environment correspondent

:11:28.:11:30.

Kevin Keane reports. This is a medium-sized town 40 miles

:11:31.:11:45.

outside Oslo. Since 2010 homes and businesses here have been heated

:11:46.:11:51.

using water from the fjords. It is extracted at about 8 degrees and

:11:52.:11:55.

returned at around four, the heat drawn under pressure is enough to

:11:56.:12:01.

create hot walks for a huge network of radiators -- hot water. The heat

:12:02.:12:06.

pumps were made in Scotland. These are refrigeration units used to

:12:07.:12:10.

essentially cool down the air and the system for district heating is

:12:11.:12:16.

more or less doing this in reverse. Equipment like this made in Glasgow

:12:17.:12:19.

was exactly what was used in the system in Norway. Very similar to

:12:20.:12:28.

Norway in the layout. The director of Star Renewables has tried to

:12:29.:12:31.

convince politicians hear of the merits of heat pumps. They need

:12:32.:12:36.

electricity but are kinder to the environment than gas boilers or

:12:37.:12:39.

electric heating, so why the reluctance? I think it is an

:12:40.:12:46.

abstract concept that we can harvest the river the heat, rivers are Chile

:12:47.:12:52.

already. It is down to bringing a combination of technology we produce

:12:53.:12:56.

in our factory and also the imagination and desire of the

:12:57.:12:59.

communities and government to see better solutions. District heating

:13:00.:13:07.

does exist in Scotland. For more than a decade Aberdeen has built a

:13:08.:13:12.

network of hot water pipes for council flats and public buildings.

:13:13.:13:17.

2500 properties are served from this one building and their heating bills

:13:18.:13:22.

are significantly less. With this, it is created by gas-fired

:13:23.:13:28.

electricity generators who sell power to the grid. It is not carbon

:13:29.:13:33.

free, but it could be. When the infrastructure is built you could

:13:34.:13:37.

bolt on the front end of the technology, as they improve and

:13:38.:13:43.

become more mature. Heating accounts for more than half of our energy use

:13:44.:13:49.

and Scotland. Whether ministers see this as the answer will be revealed

:13:50.:13:51.

and Scotland. Whether ministers see when the draft climate change plan

:13:52.:13:52.

is published tomorrow. The SNP accuses Theresa May of

:13:53.:14:06.

pursuing a little Britain Brexit. The Prime Minister says the Scottish

is currently focussing Its brand new base has just

been opened by Camilla, Here's our science correspondent

Kenneth Macdonald. We will do the measurement now and

might hear cooking noises. We will do the measurement now and

:14:47.:14:59.

to what measures what volunteers like Ian are made. I have done 16

:15:00.:15:03.

studies. The worst was eating for breakfast. Red cabbage one day and

:15:04.:15:09.

the next week, it was white cabbage breakfast. Red cabbage one day and

:15:10.:15:15.

and the following week it was Cale. It is researching better ways to

:15:16.:15:18.

start the day. So a choice of breakfast. Which would keep you

:15:19.:15:23.

feeling fuller for longer? I would go through this with fibre and fruit

:15:24.:15:29.

and tomatoes and fruit juice. Obviously better than the old eggs

:15:30.:15:34.

and bacon. But I would be wrong. The one that I would choose is the high

:15:35.:15:38.

protein because I know from research that will be good outfitting me up.

:15:39.:15:44.

I will have a busy morning, so I am less likely to grab an unhealthy

:15:45.:15:50.

snack. Protein is the key, but it is better if it is plant protein and we

:15:51.:15:52.

can grow it here. We ran studies better if it is plant protein and we

:15:53.:15:59.

that showed that a diet high in plant protein reduced some of the

risks associated with long-term high-protein animal -based diet. In

some instances sawyer is understood some instances sawyer is understood

-- is unsustainable so we are looking at sources in Scotland. If

:16:13.:16:20.

you want to be able to stick to a diet, it would be nice to think in

:16:21.:16:25.

future we could design diet specific to each individual, but at the

:16:26.:16:29.

moment we are at the stages of looking at the effect of diet

:16:30.:16:33.

composition. I'm sure it might be something we can work towards in

:16:34.:16:38.

future. The spin offs from a century of Rowett Institute research range

:16:39.:16:47.

from this, to Scotch pies. A major supermarket chain has

:16:48.:16:49.

launched an initiative designed to make life a little less stressful

:16:50.:16:52.

for some of its more The Tesco store in Forres has set up

:16:53.:16:54.

a special relaxed checkout lane where customers will be served

:16:55.:16:59.

at a more sedate pace. It's been developed

:17:00.:17:03.

with Alzheimers Scotland but, as Craig Anderson reports,

:17:04.:17:05.

many people may welcome We've all been there, we've done a

:17:06.:17:18.

big supermarket shop and put the groceries through the checkout.

:17:19.:17:21.

Coming down the conveyor belt, faster than you can put them into

:17:22.:17:27.

bags. You've got a big box of cornflakes, grapefruits rolling

:17:28.:17:29.

around. You're getting a bit frazzled. Here is a solution. What

:17:30.:17:36.

about life in the slow lane? The idea was dreamt up after staff were

:17:37.:17:40.

trained to recognise the particular needs of customers living with

:17:41.:17:44.

dementia. Just by giving people a bit more time at the checkout, can

:17:45.:17:48.

help people. Having somebody that understands some of the problems

:17:49.:17:51.

that people living with dementia and their carers might be facing, can be

:17:52.:17:57.

so supportive for them. This is the first relaxed blame of its type at a

:17:58.:18:00.

major supermarket in Scotland. It may seem a little at odds with the

:18:01.:18:05.

apparent aim of most stores to get shoppers through the tills as

:18:06.:18:10.

quickly as possible. In some cases, that's what people want. There's

:18:11.:18:14.

also another angle. That's other shoppers, other groups of shoppers.

:18:15.:18:18.

A few years ago we started a dementia awareness session in the

:18:19.:18:23.

store, and what we have done has been borne out from that. We have 42

:18:24.:18:27.

dementia aware colleagues in the store. In addition to those coping

:18:28.:18:32.

with disability, it could prove a boon to other customers, too. With

:18:33.:18:38.

people with social anxiety, depression, autism, learning

:18:39.:18:40.

difficulties, or just a mum with three kids who wants to take it easy

:18:41.:18:44.

at the checkout. The relaxed blame is open one day a week but if

:18:45.:18:49.

successful, Tesco say they could expand it further days and many more

:18:50.:18:51.

stores. Sir Andy Murray is through

to the third round of He beat the 19-year-old Russian

:19:19.:19:26.

some support for Andy Murray. Absolutely and eat tonight. He's got

number one walked into the stadium to face eight Russian qualifier 150

places below him in the rankings. He made his move to break Rublev 4-2

:19:45.:19:48.

before seeing out the set 6-3. And then the gulf in class became clear.

:19:49.:19:57.

If the first that was competitive, the second wasn't. One by the Scot

without conceding a game. -- won by the Scott. Then, plenty to worry

:20:03.:20:11.

about for the top seed and his entourage, but how would the ankle

:20:16.:20:20.

impaired, he was able to see off Rublev 6-2 in the third for another

straight sets win. His next port of call is a TV screen. I haven't seen

:20:26.:20:29.

the replay so I don't know exactly what movement I did. We are trying

:20:30.:20:34.

to find that now so my physio can see exactly which movement I did. It

:20:35.:20:40.

feels all right, just now. It's a bit stiff and sore but I can put

:20:41.:20:44.

weight on it, which is positive. I'm sure it'll be a bit stiff and sore

:20:45.:20:49.

tomorrow. I think it be all right. Despite that slight injury scare,

Andy Murray is safely through to the third round. Next up, America's Sam

The family of the owner of a watch in Glasgow's Riverside museum have

:21:09.:21:12.

been reunited with the timepiece after an appeal.

:21:13.:21:14.

The watch was donated by a survivor of a passenger ship torpedoed

:21:15.:21:16.

by the Germans on the first day of the second world war.

:21:17.:21:23.

Our arts correspondent Pauline McLean reports.

:21:24.:21:26.

A moment in time, and a story of survival for both this watch and its

:21:27.:21:34.

the last American survivors set sail across the Atlantic and the American

story of an ordinary man and an extraordinary tale of survival.

He was one of the highest paid sportsmen in the world.

So what was American Footballer, Marshawn Lynch, doing on a BMX bike

:23:37.:23:39.

in Paisley and very nearly coming to a sticky end.

:23:40.:23:42.

A wheelie on Paisley high Street which nearly ended very badly

:23:43.:23:58.

indeed. This American visitor is clearly more used to riding on the

:23:59.:24:04.

year's Super Bowl in Houston, Texas. As well as dicing with death on his

:24:27.:24:31.

bike, it seems this huge American football star did spend some time in

:24:32.:24:36.

that spot. But what he was doing there and which tartan may have

:24:37.:24:40.

:25:01.:25:05.

I think that is just him being him, staying true to who he is and having

fun. He's a guy who doesn't trust his instincts and his body so he

probably wasn't worried about it the whole time.

:25:14.:25:17.

I think he nearly retired the ever! Now the weather forecast.

:25:18.:25:25.

It was a cloudy day for many, beautiful blue skies in Moray.

:25:26.:25:36.

Tonight, mostly dry and mild. If you've had sunshine today, some

:25:37.:25:40.

clear skies tonight could see the temperature dip into freezing.

:25:41.:25:43.

Patchy outbreaks of rain in the far north-west on the Northern Isles.

:25:44.:25:50.

Temperatures foremost around 6-8 . We've had those clear skies today,

:25:51.:25:54.

clear skies tonight and a touch of frost perhaps some fog as well.

:25:55.:26:00.

Tomorrow, similar to do today. Largely dry, mostly cloudy, and once

:26:01.:26:04.

again, fairly mild for the time of year. The best of any sunshine in

:26:05.:26:12.

the north-east. Elsewhere, a fairly grey afternoon. It is mild and the

:26:13.:26:17.

winds are light. Perhaps they few spots of light rain across the

:26:18.:26:21.

hills, through the Southern uplands. Further north, perhaps 9-10, the

:26:22.:26:25.

best of the sunshine through the north-east. A bit more cloud

:26:26.:26:33.

tomorrow in the West and across the Hebrides with a few spots of rain.

:26:34.:26:37.

Similar towards Shetland, the winds still reads from the West, South

:26:38.:26:43.

West. Little change through Thursday night. Any clear spells leading to

:26:44.:26:47.

temperatures falling away. Friday, and high pressure still with us, but

with the winds going around in a clockwise motion, will be dragging

:26:58.:27:00.

across West and north western parts of the country. That dry air will

:27:01.:27:05.

mean more sunshine. After a gloomy week, more sunshine coming through

:27:06.:27:10.

here. Hopefully improving for the Glasgow area. Into the weekend,

:27:11.:27:14.

high-pressure staying with us. Largely dry, there will be some

:27:15.:27:19.

brightness, some sunshine around. Not wall-to-wall sunshine. Average

:27:20.:27:23.

temperatures and in the north-west some patchy rain.

:27:24.:27:25.

Now, a reminder of tonight's main news.

:27:26.:27:27.

The SNP has accused the Prime Minister of pursuing

:27:28.:27:29.

a "little Britain Brexit" - which would hit jobs

:27:30.:27:31.

I'll be back with the headlines at 8pm, and the late bulletin just

:27:32.:27:47.

Until then, from everyone on the team right across the country,
