Talat Aslam and her husband Mohammad from Glasgow,

:00:16.:00:18.

were on a pilgrimage to Mecca, when they were among six British

:00:19.:00:21.

nationals killed in a minibus accident in Saudi Arabia.

:00:22.:00:23.

Holyrood sets out how it hopes to reduce greenhouse gas

:00:24.:00:25.

The Scottish Government accuses the Prime Minister

:00:26.:00:28.

of treating them with contempt, as Holyrood and Westminster meet

:00:29.:00:31.

We follow the journey of Donald Trump's mum -

:00:32.:00:36.

Mary Ann Macleod, from the Western Isles,

:00:37.:00:37.

I don't have a picture of his mother. She had a lovely head of

:00:38.:00:53.

hair. But I think she kept it a bit better than Donald does.

A couple from Glasgow have died in a road accident

:00:59.:01:19.

while on a pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia.

:01:20.:01:21.

Mohammad Aslam and Talat Aslam were from the Newlands area

:01:22.:01:24.

Four members of another family from Manchester were also

:01:25.:01:28.

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

:01:29.:01:32.

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

:01:33.:01:54.

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

:01:55.:02:01.

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

:02:02.:02:08.

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

:02:09.:02:13.

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

:02:14.:02:18.

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

:02:19.:02:23.

understood why such warm tributes have been paid today on social

:02:24.:02:28.

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

:02:29.:02:31.

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

:02:32.:02:40.

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

:02:41.:02:44.

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

:02:45.:02:53.

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

:02:54.:02:56.

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

:02:57.:03:01.

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

:03:02.:03:05.

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

:03:06.:03:09.

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

:03:10.:03:14.

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

:03:15.:03:26.

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

:03:27.:03:31.

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

:03:32.:03:34.

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

:03:35.:03:39.

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

:03:40.:03:40.

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

:03:41.:03:46.

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

:03:47.:03:49.

enough focus on changing behaviour. The environment secretary has laid

:03:50.:03:51.

out a series of proposals for reducing greenhouse gas

:03:52.:03:53.

emissions by 66% by 2032. Our environment correspondent

:03:54.:03:59.

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

:04:00.:04:14.

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

:04:15.:04:19.

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

:04:20.:04:23.

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

:04:24.:04:27.

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

:04:28.:04:31.

contribution to tackling climate change.

:04:32.:04:35.

They are the three industries responsible for our greenhouse gas

:04:36.:04:45.

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

:04:46.:04:49.

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

:04:50.:04:55.

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

:04:56.:04:58.

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

:04:59.:05:02.

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

:05:03.:05:08.

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

:05:09.:05:11.

commitment to decarbonise will be the same. There is a

:05:12.:05:15.

electricity sector with increased capacity for energy storage and for

:05:16.:05:18.

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

:05:19.:05:23.

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

:05:24.:05:28.

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

:05:29.:05:33.

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

:05:34.:05:38.

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

:05:39.:05:41.

gave it their backing. The announcement today of the intention

:05:42.:05:49.

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

:05:50.:05:51.

transformational step forward. against the 1990 baseline, is a

:05:52.:05:58.

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

:05:59.:06:01.

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

:06:02.:06:06.

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

:06:07.:06:10.

be in area examined to help decarbonise the heat supply from

:06:11.:06:15.

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

:06:16.:06:19.

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

:06:20.:06:23.

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

:06:24.:06:35.

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

:06:36.:06:38.

engine spark the Industrial Revolution and Josie Black, the

:06:39.:06:40.

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

:06:41.:06:42.

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

:06:43.:06:44.

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

:06:45.:06:55.

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

:06:56.:07:00.

Did shows how important this plan is for Scotland's future.

A woman who was badly hurt in a house fire

:07:06.:07:07.

in East Dunbartonshire, in which her boyfriend died,

Rebecca Williams was injured in the blaze on New Year's Day

:07:10.:07:13.

at the family home of her partner Cameron Logan.

:07:14.:07:15.

On Monday, 26 year-old Blair Logan appeared in court charged

:07:16.:07:17.

He also faces other charges, including attempted

:07:18.:07:20.

There are renewed tensions between the Scottish and UK

:07:21.:07:26.

governments tonight over Brexit, after the latest round of talks.

:07:27.:07:29.

The Scottish Government's Brexit minister, Michael Russell,

:07:30.:07:31.

has accused the Prime Minister of treating Holyrood

:07:32.:07:34.

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

:07:35.:07:39.

Here's our Westminster correspondent, David Porter.

:07:40.:07:51.

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

:07:52.:07:58.

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

:07:59.:08:03.

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

:08:04.:08:06.

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

:08:07.:08:13.

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

:08:14.:08:17.

infrastructure, universities and entrepreneurs. To coincide with that

:08:18.:08:24.

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

:08:25.:08:30.

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

:08:31.:08:35.

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

:08:36.:08:39.

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

:08:40.:08:43.

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

:08:44.:08:47.

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

:08:48.:08:51.

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

:08:52.:08:55.

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

:08:56.:09:00.

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

:09:01.:09:05.

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

:09:06.:09:08.

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

:09:09.:09:13.

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

:09:14.:09:17.

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

:09:18.:09:22.

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

:09:23.:09:27.

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

:09:28.:09:31.

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

:09:32.:09:35.

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

:09:36.:09:40.

will have differences with the Scottish National Party on that

:09:41.:09:45.

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

:09:46.:09:50.

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

:09:51.:09:55.

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

:09:56.:09:58.

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

:09:59.:10:03.

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

:10:04.:10:08.

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

:10:09.:10:11.

protracted and difficult road ahead. Frail patients were left

:10:12.:10:16.

on ambulance trolleys in a reception area while waiting to be

:10:17.:10:18.

admitted to a hospital under "extreme pressure",

:10:19.:10:21.

according to inspectors. A team from Healthcare Improvement

:10:22.:10:23.

Scotland said more needed to be done to address "patient flow"

:10:24.:10:26.

and capacity at Crosshouse Hospital in Kilmarnock,

:10:27.:10:29.

after an unannounced A spokesman for NHS Ayrshire

:10:30.:10:32.

and Arran said staff had a strong focus on ensuring that improvements

:10:33.:10:38.

were made to deliver MSPs have been urged

:10:39.:10:40.

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

:10:41.:10:46.

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

:10:47.:10:50.

failing to serve communities Today they brought a petition

:10:51.:10:52.

to Parliament, calling The Scottish government has ruled

:10:53.:10:55.

out wholesale changes Our transport correspondent,

:10:56.:11:01.

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

:11:02.:11:15.

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

:11:16.:11:19.

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

:11:20.:11:28.

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

:11:29.:11:34.

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

:11:35.:11:40.

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

:11:41.:11:45.

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

:11:46.:11:49.

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

:11:50.:11:53.

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

:11:54.:11:58.

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

:11:59.:12:02.

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

:12:03.:12:06.

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

:12:07.:12:14.

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

:12:15.:12:19.

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

:12:20.:12:23.

Younger children may also be affected, parents have brought their

:12:24.:12:28.

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

:12:29.:12:33.

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

:12:34.:12:38.

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

:12:39.:12:43.

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

:12:44.:12:47.

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

:12:48.:12:54.

massive impact on my family. Scotland buses were deregulated by

:12:55.:12:57.

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

:12:58.:13:02.

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

:13:03.:13:07.

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

:13:08.:13:11.

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

:13:12.:13:15.

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

:13:16.:13:21.

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

:13:22.:13:26.

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

:13:27.:13:30.

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

:13:31.:13:33.

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

:13:34.:13:38.

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

:13:39.:13:41.

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

:13:42.:13:46.

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

:13:47.:13:49.

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

:13:50.:13:51.

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

:13:52.:13:53.

The Terrence Higgins Trust says this first generation of older people

:13:54.:13:55.

with HIV are facing poverty, loneliness and discrimination,

:13:56.:13:58.

because no-one expected them to live this long.

:13:59.:13:59.

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

:14:00.:14:21.

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

:14:22.:14:26.

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

:14:27.:14:34.

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

:14:35.:14:39.

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

:14:40.:14:46.

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

:14:47.:14:50.

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

:14:51.:14:55.

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

:14:56.:14:59.

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

:15:00.:15:04.

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

:15:05.:15:08.

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

:15:09.:15:13.

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

:15:14.:15:18.

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

:15:19.:15:21.

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

:15:22.:15:26.

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

:15:27.:15:31.

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

:15:32.:15:35.

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

:15:36.:15:39.

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

:15:40.:15:46.

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

:15:47.:15:50.

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

:15:51.:15:56.

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

:15:57.:16:01.

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

:16:02.:16:05.

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

:16:06.:16:14.

It's a bloodline that started in a croft house

:16:15.:16:16.

and is to continue to the White House.

:16:17.:16:18.

This family tree shows that the incoming US

:16:19.:16:20.

President Donald Trump is of strong Hebridean stock.

:16:21.:16:22.

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

:16:23.:16:24.

split on the island of Lewis, from where his mother

:16:25.:16:27.

As final preparations for his inauguration take place

:16:28.:16:31.

across the Atlantic, we sent Jackie O'Brien

:16:32.:16:33.

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

:16:34.:16:49.

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

:16:50.:16:55.

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

:16:56.:16:59.

never have imagined what lie ahead after marrying Frederick Trump

:17:00.:17:03.

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

:17:04.:17:07.

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

:17:08.:17:12.

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

:17:13.:17:18.

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

:17:19.:17:22.

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

:17:23.:17:28.

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

:17:29.:17:32.

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

:17:33.:17:36.

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

:17:37.:17:40.

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

:17:41.:17:46.

inauguration here tomorrow. If we wanted to celebrate anything

:17:47.:17:51.

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

:17:52.:17:55.

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

:17:56.:18:04.

him. Some believe that Trump deserves greater island recognition.

:18:05.:18:12.

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

:18:13.:18:17.

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

:18:18.:18:28.

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

:18:29.:18:35.

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

:18:36.:18:40.

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

:18:41.:18:45.

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

:18:46.:18:49.

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

:18:50.:18:53.

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

:18:54.:19:02.

Andy Murray's main rival for the Australian Open has been

:19:03.:19:04.

Novak Djokovic lost in five sets to the unseeded

:19:05.:19:08.

From Melbourne, Kheredine Idessane reports.

:19:09.:19:14.

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

:19:15.:19:22.

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

:19:23.:19:29.

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

:19:30.:19:32.

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

:19:33.:19:36.

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

:19:37.:19:42.

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

:19:43.:19:47.

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

:19:48.:19:52.

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

:19:53.:19:55.

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

:19:56.:20:01.

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

:20:02.:20:06.

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

:20:07.:20:11.

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

:20:12.:20:14.

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

:20:15.:20:18.

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

:20:19.:20:22.

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

:20:23.:20:27.

overwhelming favourite. COMMENTATOR: With his departure it changes the

:20:28.:20:30.

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

:20:31.:20:35.

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

:20:36.:20:42.

Now football - it's the fourth round of the William Hill

:20:43.:20:45.

The stage when the country's biggest clubs enter the competition.

:20:46.:20:48.

It always throws up some interesting ties.

:20:49.:20:50.

None more so than the one involving the part time junior team who'll

:20:51.:20:53.

And as David Currie reports, there's even a hint of showbiz

:20:54.:20:58.

The junior club, Bonnyrigg Rose aren't usually huge box office, they

:20:59.:21:09.

are this week, they are playing the be Cup holders Hibernian in the

:21:10.:21:12.

fourth round but there's also a film star connection Action. OK. JAMES

:21:13.:21:24.

BOND THEME TUNE PLAYS We had Sean Connery playing for

:21:25.:21:27.

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

:21:28.:21:32.

paper or something, wishing us all the best.

:21:33.:21:37.
