Aileen Clarke is at the Glasgow Central Mosque for us tonight.


Terribly sad news. Mohammad Aslam and Talat Aslam are from the South


Side of Glasgow. Mohammad Aslam in his 70s, his wife in her 60s. They


had just completed their pilgrimage to Mecca when their minibus crashed.


They were killed and also some members of what is believed there


extended family from Manchester, were also killed. This afternoon I


spoke to a good friend of the family. And he said he completely


understood why such warm tributes have been paid today on social


media, particularly to Talat Aslam, who said was a very warm and


outgoing person. She was a lady's lady. All the


functions and charities and the groups, she was always there in


front all the time. More of the ladies will be missing her. And


Mohammad Aslam a very good friend? No doubt about it, a dear friend,


Mohammad Aslam a very good friend? like my own brother. Anything I


needed, he would come and say, I will help you out. When I moved into


this house, he helped with the windows and the bathroom, you was a


gentleman. They will be very much missed? Definitely. I am deeply


sorry about it. For other people, three adults and a


baby also died in the crash. Those members of the family are thought to


come from Manchester. But here, prayers have already been said in


the mosque for the couple from Newlands who died in the crash who


are survived by their five grown-up children. Thought is very much here


with them to night. Thank you. Environmental groups say Scotland's


draft climate change plan is too much of a "technofix" with not


enough focus on changing behaviour. The environment secretary has laid


out a series of proposals for reducing greenhouse gas


emissions by 66% by 2032. Our environment correspondent


Kevin Keane joins us from Aberdeen. Sally, we are a carbon hungry


environment and so much of what we do creates greenhouse gas emissions


from switching on the lights to eating party in front of the


television and obviously, driving the car. All these things cause


damage to the environment. Ministers set out how we in Scotland make our


contribution to tackling climate change.


They are the three industries responsible for our greenhouse gas


emissions, energy, transport and electricity make up for what he


pumped into the atmosphere. Today, a plan to fix the damage they have


caused. At the end of the day, if we don't fix this problem, the negative


impact will be on huge numbers of people. We need to get this sorted


out. On transport, the aim is to make to fit of cars ultralow


emission by 2032, half of all bosses will be the same. There is a


commitment to decarbonise will be the same. There is a


electricity sector with increased capacity for energy storage and for


agriculture, better management of the nutrient value of soil. NFB 's


Scotland welcoming the Minister's pragmatic approach. My message to


Scotland's farmers is clear, what is good for the climate is good for


your pocket and we will support you to put your missions and costs.


Conservatives accused the minister of not fully costing the plan, but


gave it their backing. The announcement today of the intention


to reduce emissions by 66% by 2032 against the 1990 baseline, is a


transformational step forward. against the 1990 baseline, is a


plan is a 178 page document and the devil will be in the detail. There


was no commitment on a workplace parking levy like the one in


Nottingham, but it wasn't dismissed. And technology made in Glasgow will


be in area examined to help decarbonise the heat supply from


2025. I don't think it goes far enough on areas like transport and


agriculture. I think there is scope for all parties to come up with good


ideas on how the plan can be made more specific and the


steps can be made more specific going forward. James Watt's steam


engine spark the Industrial Revolution and Josie Black, the


scientist who discovered the gas which did most of the damage. Both


Scots, both linked to our climate's history. Today, both


linked to its future. This plan was meant to be published next year, but


it was requested it would be brought forward so it could be scrutinised.

The Scottish Government's Brexit minister, Michael Russell,


has accused the Prime Minister of treating Holyrood


It follows Teresa May's announcement that she plans to take the UK out


Here's our Westminster correspondent, David Porter.


Davos in Switzerland and the World Economic Forum. The annual meeting


of the world's great and good. An opportunity to chew the economic and


political fact. This day, a key topic on the menu, Brexit. Enter


Theresa May, to articulate her vision of the future. Britain is and


will always be, open for business, open to investment in our companies,


infrastructure, universities and entrepreneurs. To coincide with that


speech, a direct message to Scotland in a placed newspaper article. It


comes in the week Mrs May explicitly ruled out remaining in the single


market. Today in Whitehall, more talks on the nitty-gritty of Brexit.


But the Scottish Government is still angry with the Prime Minister's


pronouncement. I think it is a breach of the terms of this


particular meeting. We were meant to be involved in decisions not being


told what to do. There will be a general view it breached the process


with which we are engaged. After two hours, talks which did little to


improve the mood of Brexit's minister. It was the wrong thing to


say at the wrong time. It is fair to say, in great part, the other


administrations were very concerned she had pre-empted the meeting. She


made a pronouncement on the single market, which is the wrong


pronouncement to make. She had done so frankly, with contempt. Anger


from some of Northern Ireland's politicians, but a more emollient


tone from the Scottish Secretary. The Prime Minister has set out her


plan for how Britain should exit from the EU, which is what people


voted for across the United kingdom on the 23rd of June. Obviously, we


will have differences with the Scottish National Party on that


issue. I don't think people would expect otherwise. But this is just


the beginning. The First Minister and the Prime Minister are due to


meet again soon and Brexit will be top of the agenda. Further


discussions will be held between Scottish and UK ministers next week.


Also next week, the Supreme Court will make a key ruling on how the


Brexit process should get under way. But most are expecting a long,


protracted and difficult road ahead. Frail patients were left

to change the way Scotland's Right now, almost all buses


are operated by private firms and the Unite union claims that's


failing to serve communities Today they brought a petition


to Parliament, calling The Scottish government has ruled


out wholesale changes Our transport correspondent,


David Henderson has this report. The village of Banton in North


Lanarkshire is home to a few hundred people who rely on buses to get them


to work, school and the shops. The way they are going, they are awful.


If I want to go to Falkirk, the thing is I have to get out at


Forsyth and then wait for another bus. They are talking about taking


the Falkirk won out as well. It is not fair on people who don't drive.


This shop" back, presenting a problem for many of the people who


live here. They have to travel to a nearby town to do their shopping.


But they don't have a car, they have to go by bus. But what if there


isn't a bus to catch. Banton is away from the main road and this bus,


which goes through the village, may not come here in future. It is a


dismal prospect for locals like this. I cannot get to work and I


cannot get to go out with my friends and everything. I won't be able to


go to college when I leave school without relying on my mum and dad.


Younger children may also be affected, parents have brought their


youngsters to display group in the village. They are entitled to more


free hours of nursery a few miles away, but without a bus, they can't


get there. My two Sons are at nursery, so I use the bus on a daily


basis. I would like to take them to playgroups and things out of the


village. Get shopping and things like that, so it would have a


massive impact on my family. Scotland buses were deregulated by


Margaret Thatcher's government in the 1980s, so now all services are


run by private firms and they are not obliged to serve a bus route if


they cannot make a profit. In a petition to Parliament, big night


union claims the system has failed. You can't have it that you are


handing over a vital service to the community to the private sector and


allowing the firm to dictate what it will and won't do in terms of that


service to the public. The Scottish Government has ruled out what it


service to the public. The Scottish calls the wholesaler reregulation of


the bus system. It says it is working to improve the services and


spending more than a quarter of ?1 billion of year, but campaigners


want to see that many do more for places like Banton.


More HIV-positive Scots are living past the age of 50 than ever before.


While that's good news, a leading charity is warning


about what it describes as a social care "timebomb".


The Terrence Higgins Trust says this first generation of older people


with HIV are facing poverty, loneliness and discrimination,


because no-one expected them to live this long.


There is now a danger that has become a threat to us all. A death


sentence, that his how HIV or AIDS, as it was known, was regarded in the


1980s. I didn't think I had any future. I was 35 in 1986 when I was


diagnosed. I didn't think I had a life, so I spent my money. Then I


have a life so I have started saving again. Not everyone is as positive


about the future. 4500 people in Scotland are living with HIV. A


third of them are over the age of 50. Of those, two thirds are living


in poverty, while eight out of ten say they experience loneliness and


isolation. Much higher than in the wider population. They have lived


through an era when treatment were not as effective. They may have lost


dear friends and loved ones and partners to the condition. They have


also lived in a time when people had less positive attitudes about HIV so


they carry some of that burden with them. Michael now volunteers with


the Terrence Higgins trust, helping others come to term with diagnosis,


treatment and long-time care. This is the ticking time bomb the charity


one. In some areas, because they have never had an understanding of


HIV before, you are still living with the stereotypes of 20 or 30


years ago, so they are isolating people. They sit in a chair and


people will wipe it down afterwards. They are not encouraged to be in the


same room as other residents. As for Michael, he is more positive than


ever. You have to be philosophical and grateful that each year passes


and they continue to pass and you are still breathing. In that


respect, I am a positive person. I just happen to be positive.


It's a bloodline that started in a croft house


and is to continue to the White House.


This family tree shows that the incoming US


President Donald Trump is of strong Hebridean stock.


But as in the States, opinion on his new role remains

Yrigg. -- it's a story that could be played out in Hollywood as well as


the Hebrides. Setting sail from the Isle of Lewis to escape Great


Depression. The fisherman's daughter turned New York socialite could


never have imagined what lie ahead after marrying Frederick Trump


First, I want to thank my parents who I know are looking down on me.


The youngest of ten children, Mary Anne Macleod left the Hebridean


shores as a teenager for a new and better life across the Atlantic but


the islander, who was to produce a President, never forgot her roots.


So. Older members recall her visiting when she was home on the


island and the amazing thing was she was very much into the Gallic and


she spoke Gallic. The President-elect did make a flying


visit to his mother's home several years ago, where his cousin still


lives. He's never returned and there are no plans to celebrate his


inauguration here tomorrow. If we wanted to celebrate anything


we'll celebrate Mary-Ann herself. Donald arrived off a plane and


disappeared. That was T I can't say he left much of an impression behind


him. Some believe that Trump deserves greater island recognition.


Someone of this stock, being President of the USA, it should have


some benefit for the island. But this American living in Lewis won't


be flying any flags. We share the shame of the elected President.


There is no dispute that Donald Trump's distinctive red hair has


come from the Hebrides and we've been sharing style tips The pictures


I saw of his mother, she had a lovely head of hair. I think she


kept it at bit Bert than Donald did. What advice would you give him the


next time he visits the hairdresser? Go for a number 2.

Novak Djokovic lost in five sets to the unseeded


From Melbourne, Kheredine Idessane reports.


The moment a little-known player from Uzbekistan blew the Australian


Open wide apart. COMMENTATOR: Got it. The six times winner and


defending champion out of a tournament he had come to call his


own. Well, this is arguably the greatest upset in the history of


this tournament but what could do it do for the world number 1, Andy


Murray? Murray fans will be rubbing their hands together, won't they? It


is certainly again for Murray to takes like Wimbledon when you see


Novak Djokovic out of the draw. But it is Andy's tournament to win. He


did it in style at women wi. Let's see if he can here. I think he


probably will. That's assuming all's well with


Andy's Ann he will. He rolled it in his last match but practised on it


today moving as freely as ever. How relieved will Murray be that Novak


Djokovic is out. Every time he has played him at this turn anti has


lost a sequence that starts six years ago and includes four defeats


in the final and one in the semis. All of a sudden Andy Murray is the


overwhelming favourite. COMMENTATOR: With his departure it changes the


draw for everybody. It's now up to the world number one


to make the most of his arch rival's surprised departure.

BOND THEME TUNE PLAYS We had Sean Connery playing for


Bonnyrigg when he was younger. He sent a message, he read a bit in the


paper or something, wishing us all the best.


Before he was 007, the screen icon briefly played for the Rosie Posey.


That accounts for the Bond theme at their media day. But Sir Sean never


managed the sort of footballing heroics, the current squad have


performed, knocking out the Championship side Dumbarton in the


last round. Next, the Cup holders. Now, the tie was scheduled to be


played here at New Dundass Park which has a capacity of about 2,000.


But it has been switched to Tyne castle, the home of Hibernian's arch


rivals, Hearts A fair few Hearts fans in the squad. Myself, I was a


mascot there. The dress is much less formal as


Bonnierig train. If they pull off one of the biggest shocks in club


match history, you'll remember the name, it's Rose Bonnyrigg Rose.


A dry but cloudy day for many. Thank you for our weather watchers sending


in photographs this like. You can see swathe of cloud across the


country. North-east, some sunshine. In fact one of our weather watchers


sending in this beautiful picture. Blue skies going on. Tonight it is


cloudy for most and mild where it is cloudy. Where it is clear it'll be


cold with temperatures dipping down to freezing, perhaps sub-zero in the


countryside. A touch of frost and also perhaps some fog around but for


many, five or six Celsius does it. Cooler than recent nights but


nothing desperately cold. Tomorrow similar fayrre. Similar, a weather


front trapped here in the middle. Giving some cloudy and sunny


weather. To the south, the area of sunshine more expansive than we have


seen today but really to areas only to the north of the central


lowlands. Tomorrow another dry day for most. Cloudy for central and


southern parts but the cloud is just that bit thinner. The area is that


bit drier, so it is more likely to break. So there could be some


brighter moments coming through. By mid-afternoon, say around 3.00pm, it


is actually cooler, 6 or 7 Celsius but once again reasonably dry,


fairly cloudy, the odd spot of rain around south-west coast. Any


guaranteed sunshine, if you like, probably up to pertshire, Moray,


Invernesshire and the far north of Orkney. Cloudier for the Western


Isles and Shetland, a few spots of rain and a fresh freeze. Once again


any clear spells overnight will lead to a frost and perhaps fog. Then to


the weekend, Saturday and hopefully something a bit brighter in towards


the west and south-west which has been rather gloomy. Eastern parts,


more cloud compared with recent days and certainly come Sunday, it will


well, another dry day for most but it will be cloudy and quite cool.


Four or five Celsius. It'll feel chilly, with cloudy skies. That is


he a the forecast for now. -- that's the forecast for now.


I'll be back with the headlines at 8.00 and the late bulletin just
