So it's goodbye from me, and on BBC One we now join the BBC's

:00:00.:00:00.

The UK government is accused of a cover-up over the malfunction

:00:00.:00:14.

of a missile in a recent Trident test.

:00:15.:00:16.

A claim that some rape victims in Shetland are being put off

:00:17.:00:20.

going to the police - because they have to

:00:21.:00:22.

travel to the mainland for forensic examinations.

:00:23.:00:24.

And then you decide to start your own company.

:00:25.:00:28.

We meet the couple who are doing just that.

:00:29.:00:34.

Choose life, choose a sequel, choose hanging out on the red carpet -

:00:35.:00:37.

we catch up with the stars of T2 Trainspotting

:00:38.:00:39.

We were a bit nervous about making a sequel and not pulling it off and

:00:40.:00:53.

damaging the reputation or leaving a stale taste about the original film.

:00:54.:01:00.

And also on the programme, one of tennis's all-time greats

:01:01.:01:03.

tells us why she thinks Andy Murray crashed out of the

:01:04.:01:05.

The UK government has refused to say whether an unarmed Trident missile

:01:06.:01:26.

veered off course during a test of the system last June after being

:01:27.:01:29.

The submarine is based at Faslane on the Clyde.

:01:30.:01:33.

Labour and the SNP have accused the Ministry

:01:34.:01:35.

Here's our Westminster correspondent, David Porter.

:01:36.:01:40.

A foggy Monday and business as usual at the home of Britain's submarine

:01:41.:01:53.

nuclear deterrent. The mist may be a metaphor for the confusion

:01:54.:01:55.

surrounding the recent test of a Trident missile and how UK ministers

:01:56.:01:59.

have responded. Reports have emerged that an unarmed missile eyed from

:02:00.:02:05.

the base submarine page most engines last June the off-course -- fired.

:02:06.:02:13.

It should have headed towards Africa, but instead headed to the

:02:14.:02:20.

US. Yesterday the Prime Minister was not forthcoming the subject and she

:02:21.:02:23.

briefed on the certificate that it briefed on the certificate that it

:02:24.:02:33.

-- successful syndication of HMS vengeance, but we don't comment on

:02:34.:02:38.

these issues. -- certification. The difference secretary was reticent to

:02:39.:02:46.

give too much away. Neither myself or the Prime Minister I going to

:02:47.:02:49.

give too many details of our submarine operations or the systems

:02:50.:02:55.

and subsystems which are tested to a demonstration and shakedown

:02:56.:02:59.

operation. That cut little ice with opposition MPs. Who took the

:03:00.:03:04.

decision not to inform Parliament of this incident? How could the nuclear

:03:05.:03:12.

deterrent be certified for use when the system has filed? Is it not the

:03:13.:03:18.

case that the unilateralists who are complaining are in the position of

:03:19.:03:28.

the of eunuchs complaining about the cost of Viagra? Some say it bolsters

:03:29.:03:33.

the case for getting rid of all nuclear weapons. I don't want no

:03:34.:03:39.

renewal of Trident, no nuclear weapons. It is just disgusting,

:03:40.:03:47.

complete injustice, that is what it is, they don't care. Some MPs say it

:03:48.:03:51.

raises questions about renewing Trident altogether. Others argued

:03:52.:03:56.

that is what tests are for, to iron out problems. We can go to David at

:03:57.:04:01.

Westminster. Did the Defence Secretary do enough

:04:02.:04:06.

to placate MPs, David? No, and I don't think so Michael

:04:07.:04:14.

Fallon was ever in the view that he was going to win any prizes for

:04:15.:04:22.

disclosure to MPs -- Sir Michael Fallon. He was ordered by the

:04:23.:04:28.

Speaker of the House of Commons to come and address MPs. By and large

:04:29.:04:34.

of a Conservative MPs were very supportive of Michael Fallon, by his

:04:35.:04:37.

argument that it would be wrong to try and give details of operations

:04:38.:04:42.

that the Ministry of Defence carries out particularly on something as

:04:43.:04:46.

sensitive as Trident. Opposition MPs did not buy that and they wanted

:04:47.:04:48.

more information. They did not get it. He was offered the chance to

:04:49.:04:54.

speak to MPs tomorrow on the defence committee in private but he did not

:04:55.:04:58.

seem to want to take that offer, and another development, in America more

:04:59.:05:01.

details are coming out on this from the Trump administration. That will

:05:02.:05:05.

annoy many MPs. Thanks for joining us.

:05:06.:05:07.

The Cowdenbeath footballer David Robertson, who was last week

:05:08.:05:09.

judged to be a rapist in a civil case, is retiring from

:05:10.:05:12.

Robertson and his then Dundee United teammate David Goodwillie

:05:13.:05:19.

were sued by Denise Clair, who said the two men raped her

:05:20.:05:22.

David Robertson's professional playing career is now over, a

:05:23.:05:32.

statement on the website at Cowdenbeath said he was retiring

:05:33.:05:35.

from the game and the club's chairman said he wanted to thank

:05:36.:05:38.

David for his work. David Robertson and his former Dundee United

:05:39.:05:44.

team-mate David Goodwillie were found at the Court of Session last

:05:45.:05:47.

week in Edinburgh to have raped a woman in a flat in January 2011,

:05:48.:05:52.

Denise Clair. She took a civil case against the men because the Crown

:05:53.:05:54.

Office said it would not proceed with a criminal prosecution and it

:05:55.:05:57.

did not feel that the evidence. The love. But the court found in her

:05:58.:06:03.

favour -- did not feel that the evidence was strong enough. That the

:06:04.:06:06.

two men had taken advantage of her when she was under the influence of

:06:07.:06:11.

alcohol. They were ordered to pay compensation to Denise Clair. David

:06:12.:06:18.

Goodwillie is at Plymouth Argyle and they said they are making a decision

:06:19.:06:21.

about his future and by going to issue a statement in the next few

:06:22.:06:27.

days. -- by going. -- they are going to issue.

:06:28.:06:28.

Scotrail has announced who'll be replacing its current boss,

:06:29.:06:31.

Phil Verster, who announced last week he's quitting

:06:32.:06:32.

to take up another job in the industry in England.

:06:33.:06:35.

The current managing director of Arriva Rail North, Alex Hynes,

:06:36.:06:37.

There's been recent criticism of Scotrail, centering around

:06:38.:06:41.

Fatal Accident Inquiries are to be held into the deaths

:06:42.:06:44.

of two teenagers at Polmont Young Offenders'

:06:45.:06:46.

The deaths, which are not believed to be linked,

:06:47.:06:50.

Police said there appeared to be no suspicious

:06:51.:06:54.

Some rape victims in Shetland are being put off going

:06:55.:07:04.

to the police to report the crime - because they have to

:07:05.:07:07.

travel to the mainland for forensic examinations.

:07:08.:07:08.

That's according to Shetland Rape Crisis which is calling

:07:09.:07:11.

for facilities to be set up in Orkney and Shetland so victims

:07:12.:07:13.

don't have to go through the ordeal of travelling by either boat

:07:14.:07:16.

Linda Gray helps rape victims in Shetland and she says the way it is

:07:17.:07:31.

investigating the island is prolonging the pain rather than

:07:32.:07:34.

helping the victims. At worst it can mean a 12 our journey by boat to

:07:35.:07:43.

Aberdeen. -- 12 hour. You would be asked not to wash and you have got

:07:44.:07:46.

to give a brief statement, and not to change your clothes or the police

:07:47.:07:50.

will take your clothes and give you new clothes and then you will be

:07:51.:07:53.

escort it on the next available flight to Aberdeen. -- escorted. To

:07:54.:08:00.

do the forensic tests. There were 12 sexual assaults and three rapes in

:08:01.:08:04.

Shetland over the space of 12 months but those working with survivors

:08:05.:08:08.

said the true figure is much higher. Because currently there is no

:08:09.:08:12.

forensic tests available on the island, the evidence I'm hearing

:08:13.:08:16.

from the survivors is that is putting them off going forward and

:08:17.:08:21.

reporting the crime to the police. But the problem in the Northern

:08:22.:08:24.

Isles is finding the local expertise together the forensic evidence. The

:08:25.:08:28.

health board is looking at ways to provide the service. It is very

:08:29.:08:32.

difficult in Shetland because we have small numbers and it is hard to

:08:33.:08:36.

maintain the expertise we need to do the forensic examinations properly

:08:37.:08:39.

to meet the legal requirements but we are working hard to speak to

:08:40.:08:42.

other people, to improve things and come up with a better way of doing

:08:43.:08:47.

it. For Linda Gray and the victims she helps that can't happen fast

:08:48.:08:48.

enough. A former Catholic monk who taught

:08:49.:08:53.

at the Fort Augustus Abbey school in the Highlands has appeared

:08:54.:08:56.

in court in Australia facing extradition on charges

:08:57.:08:58.

of child sex abuse. Father Denis Alexander

:08:59.:09:04.

denies the allegations. The move to bring him back to face

:09:05.:09:05.

trial here follows a series Here's our Investigations

:09:06.:09:08.

Correspondent Mark Daly. Around a dozen Benedictine monks

:09:09.:09:22.

were accused of carrying out physical and sexual assaults against

:09:23.:09:26.

boys in their care at the Catholic Fort Augustus boarding school in the

:09:27.:09:30.

Highlands. One of those accused was Father Denis Alexander, also known

:09:31.:09:38.

as... Confronted here by me in Sydney for a BBC documentary in 2013

:09:39.:09:41.

which prompted a major police investigation. Just get off my

:09:42.:09:47.

property or I will call the cops. Three and a half years after the

:09:48.:09:50.

programme that investigation has taken a significant turn, he has

:09:51.:09:56.

been arrested in Sydney and remanded in custody, pending his extradition

:09:57.:10:00.

back to Scotland to face trial. He will face a hearing in the local

:10:01.:10:03.

court in Australia on Wednesday. One of his cues is Hugh Kennedy has

:10:04.:10:08.

apparent delays in the extradition apparent delays in the extradition

:10:09.:10:13.

-- one of his accusers. But today means he might now mean his alleged

:10:14.:10:17.

abuser, aged 80, in a Scottish court. It has been a long and

:10:18.:10:22.

frustrating journey for the likes of Hugh Kennedy and there are still

:10:23.:10:24.

many legal hurdles to overcome, but the arrest of Father Alexander Sigel

:10:25.:10:30.

is the beginning of the extradition process in Australia -- signals.

:10:31.:10:36.

That means the Scottish and crucially the Australian authorities

:10:37.:10:38.

believe that there is significant enough evidence to justify bringing

:10:39.:10:42.

Father Alexander back to Scotland to face trial for the crimes he is

:10:43.:10:47.

alleged to have committed here more than 40 years ago.

:10:48.:10:54.

The Transport minister says the government is to hold

:10:55.:10:56.

a consultation on changes to free bus passes amid reports it wants

:10:57.:10:58.

Currently people over 60 are automatically entitled to one.

:10:59.:11:08.

Now transport minister Humza Yousaf says he wants to extend it

:11:09.:11:11.

And he's confirmed he's reviewing the age at

:11:12.:11:14.

We understand that people are living longer and they are staying in work

:11:15.:11:19.

for longer which are great things, but we have got to look at the

:11:20.:11:23.

long-term sustainability. We are having continued cuts on the

:11:24.:11:25.

Westminster government and we have to make sure our budgets go further.

:11:26.:11:30.

If you have the pass you will have that, and you can use it in the same

:11:31.:11:34.

way, but I would urge everyone to get involved in the consultation.

:11:35.:11:37.

Meanwhile a retired couple from Bo'ness are trying to set up

:11:38.:11:40.

a new bus service - so people from their town can travel

:11:41.:11:43.

They say cuts to existing bus services makes it difficult

:11:44.:11:49.

Last week, the Unite union urged the Scottish government to improve

:11:50.:11:53.

bus services in remote and rural areas.

:11:54.:11:55.

Our transport correspondent David Henderson has this report.

:11:56.:12:01.

It is Scotland's most popular kind of public transport, everyday buses

:12:02.:12:06.

carry more than a million people to work, school, the shops, and home.

:12:07.:12:15.

But services can be patchy. Helen and Rab live in Bo'ness and for many

:12:16.:12:19.

years they have taken a bus to the city centre but that service has

:12:20.:12:22.

been cut back and now only runs morning and evening. For while I had

:12:23.:12:27.

to stop going to events, educational staff, to do research, and I've even

:12:28.:12:33.

turn down work in Edinburgh and my family is in Edinburgh. I found

:12:34.:12:39.

other ways but it involves using our car and getting my husband. I've

:12:40.:12:45.

even thought about thumbing a lift. They may be retired but they have a

:12:46.:12:49.

plan, to set up a new bus service for people in the town. It is up to

:12:50.:12:55.

us to take another route and anyone who wants to relative STUDIO: --

:12:56.:13:03.

anyone who wants to visit a relative has got to take a different road,

:13:04.:13:07.

and anyone who wants to go to university has got to take a

:13:08.:13:11.

different road. Meanwhile, on some routes people are spoilt for choice.

:13:12.:13:21.

By ongoing to run the route on a not for-profit basis, but some bus

:13:22.:13:29.

routes are operated by 200 companies and they do look to make money, and

:13:30.:13:33.

critics accuse them of cherry picking the most profitable routes.

:13:34.:13:37.

Bus operators say they rely on subsidies to run a service on

:13:38.:13:42.

quieter routes. Quite often the bus that goes missing can be a bus that

:13:43.:13:47.

has been supported by the local authority, the financial challenges

:13:48.:13:49.

they have got have made it a difficult area for them to continue

:13:50.:13:55.

to support. The industry tries its best and by working in partnership

:13:56.:13:58.

with local authorities we can get the best outcome for everyone. The

:13:59.:14:02.

Scottish Government says it supports bus travel to the tune of more than

:14:03.:14:08.

?200 million a year. But some are calling for a change in the rules,

:14:09.:14:12.

so gaps in the network are filled by bus firms, not by people in towns

:14:13.:14:14.

like Bo'ness. You're watching BBC

:14:15.:14:21.

Reporting Scotland. Ministers refused to say whether the

:14:22.:14:29.

Pauline McLean met the with cast, It may have taken 21 years for a

:14:51.:15:06.

sequel to Trainspotting to arrive, but for hundreds of fans it was

:15:07.:15:10.

worth the wait. I always hoped they would be a sequel and thankfully

:15:11.:15:14.

there is, I'm a huge fan of Danny Boyle and Ewan McGregor. The film

:15:15.:15:20.

reunites the gang, they are all older if not necessarily wiser. We

:15:21.:15:27.

were a bit nervous about making a sequel to Trainspotting and not

:15:28.:15:30.

pulling it off, and damaging the reputation or leaving a stale taste

:15:31.:15:33.

in people's mouths about the original film. It was amazing to

:15:34.:15:38.

step back into their shoes and hear those voices again, very special. I

:15:39.:15:42.

was very nervous about doing the play and then the film, and I've

:15:43.:15:49.

been nervous about doing the sequel. But I'm glad that we made it

:15:50.:15:56.

through. I think it was really quite epic. The film was a game changer

:15:57.:16:04.

for the Scottish industry, launching not just the careers of the cast,

:16:05.:16:06.

for the Scottish industry, launching but encouraging other film-makers.

:16:07.:16:10.

The production has almost doubled in Scotland in the last decade,

:16:11.:16:15.

including T2 which was able to use more locations from the capital. A

built their sets. And before the sequel has even made it into cinemas

:16:44.:16:47.

of unanswered stuff about them, and I've also been working with Danny

:16:48.:16:50.

and John and Andrew, buzzing about that. Danny always said to wait this

:16:51.:16:56.

amount of time to do it and I had not really understood it until we

:16:57.:17:03.

shot it, because it is more about the life experience that you have

and that you gone through 20 years, even though it is not Robert Carlyle

Lawyers for parents affected by the Aberdeen baby ashes scandal

say they've been astonished by the number of people

:17:32.:17:33.

A total of 67 families will be represented

:17:34.:17:40.

by the same legal team as they seek compensation

:17:41.:17:42.

from the city council over the scandal

:17:43.:17:44.

Baby and adult ashes were mixed together,

Detectives say Ross Monaghan - who'd been previously cleared

So often you are in tiny spaces that are not equipped with what you

really need. Sir Andy Murray is flying

:19:14.:19:15.

home from Melbourne, after his shock loss at the last 16

:19:16.:19:17.

stage of the Australian Open. Although his world number one

as usual around Melbourne Park. As the Australian open continued

:19:41.:19:45.

without its top seed. Some were even playing it for laughs. Among the

:19:46.:19:50.

tennis legends, one of the game 's greatest exponent shed some light on

:19:51.:19:56.

the world number one's shock exit. You cannot exclude the last six

:19:57.:20:00.

months of anti-'s life. Maybe just too much, too soon. With the season

:20:01.:20:07.

being this short, he gave so much of himself, winning Wimbledon and the

:20:08.:20:10.

Olympics and the number one ranking on the line in the very last match

:20:11.:20:13.

of the year, that's a lot of emotional and mental energy. He just

:20:14.:20:19.

didn't look happy, he was yapping at his box even when things were going

:20:20.:20:23.

well. I think it's just mental tiredness and I'm sure he'll snap

:20:24.:20:27.

out of it. Frustration for Murray yesterday but words of encouragement

that he has lost in the fourth round. But he's made of tough stuff,

is very ambitious he's got a huge amount of passion, he wants to get

:20:42.:20:45.

better. After some days of reflection then time. Taking shape

:20:46.:20:49.

and he'll start thinking about the rest of the year and realise there

:20:50.:20:53.

is an awful lot of grabs, still. He's the number one player in the

play? After such a gruelling end to of next week but will Andy Murray

last season, and a disappointing start to this one, I wouldn't be too

:21:09.:21:12.

surprised if he missed the trip to Ottawa in favour of some rest as he

:21:13.:21:16.

tries to turn misery in Melbourne into joy in Paris and London later

:21:17.:21:21.

this year with the twin targets of the French Open and Wimbledon.

:21:22.:21:26.

The sky's the limit it seems for Scottish rugby right now.

:21:27.:21:30.

Glasgow and Edinburgh are both into European quarter finals.

:21:31.:21:38.

The success is timely with the six Nations less than a fortnight away.

:21:39.:21:42.

Stuart Hogg epitomises all that's good about Scottish rugby at the

:21:43.:21:52.

moment. A world-class operator. A long-term commitment to playing in

:21:53.:21:56.

Scotland. And a near certainty for a place at this summer 's British and

:21:57.:22:00.

Irish Lions squad. And he's not alone. 32 of this 36 man Scotland

:22:01.:22:04.

squad are now European quarterfinalists. The challenge is

:22:05.:22:08.

to take that form to the international stage, where they end

:22:09.:22:14.

to be title contenders. For us we will concentrate on Ireland first

:22:15.:22:17.

and foremost, here's hoping we can hit some form and train well and

:22:18.:22:21.

take that into the first game. I think especially the Glasgow boys,

:22:22.:22:25.

Finn has been playing awesome at ten. If we can get outside him it

:22:26.:22:30.

will be grand. If you think you've heard this kind of positivity going

:22:31.:22:34.

into a six Nations before, you'd be right. There have been several false

:22:35.:22:38.

storms in recent years. With Glasgow pulling up trees in Europe, and

:22:39.:22:44.

Edinburgh enjoying European success as well, maybe this time can be

:22:45.:22:47.

different. You've got an all Scottish starting 15 at Glasgow who

:22:48.:22:50.

have just destroyed one of the best English clubs, whatever the problems

:22:51.:22:56.

at Leicester R. To counteract that you've got to say that the six

:22:57.:23:00.

Nations is incredibly brutal. It's only five games but it can feel very

:23:01.:23:03.

long and drawn out if you are losing. Ireland have just beating

:23:04.:23:08.

the all Blacks. We've been optimistic before, and we have

:23:09.:23:11.

reason to be optimistic now, but you've always got to temper that if

:23:12.:23:15.

you are Scottish. But that confidence, boosted further by

:23:16.:23:20.

recent results, will take some tempering. If Stuart Robinson

:23:21.:23:25.

company can recreate their performances for Scotland it may not

:23:26.:23:26.

even be necessary. And from a gruelling game of rugby

:23:27.:23:28.

to another feat of endurance - a cycle all the way from Lands End

:23:29.:23:32.

to John O'Groats. It's been achieved by

:23:33.:23:34.

Aaron Puzey, a digital games However he's claiming to be

:23:35.:23:36.

the first person to have done Here's our science correspondent

:23:37.:23:40.

Kenneth Macdonald. It's a lovely day to go out for a

:23:41.:23:50.

spin, and an even better one to stay in. Aaron Pusey knew his exercise

:23:51.:23:55.

bike was good for him, but staring at the wall was boring. So with the

:23:56.:24:00.

help of Google Street view he's been cycling from lands end to John O

:24:01.:24:07.

groats in virtual reality. Cycle complete. Congratulations, you can

:24:08.:24:12.

take the goggles off now. Thank you. I know we are supposed to ask how it

:24:13.:24:16.

feels. Feels fantastic, such a good thing. After six to seven months of

:24:17.:24:21.

cycling it feels so good to finish this finally. To travel across

:24:22.:24:27.

Britain, the first person to do it. Aaron programmed those flying cubes

:24:28.:24:32.

to show him which way to go. He only took three wrong turns in 1500

:24:33.:24:36.

kilometres. Among the sites along the way, a woman in dressing gown

:24:37.:24:39.

and wellies, several horses and carts, and a fight. He found the 3-D

:24:40.:24:44.

information buried in Google Street view. The rest of the tech was easy,

:24:45.:24:50.

for him. It was just a little mobile phone app I wrote in my spare time,

:24:51.:24:53.

probably took me three or four weeks. Just a little bit of research

:24:54.:24:59.

on how it works. And yeah, it just came together really quickly. Now

:25:00.:25:05.

he's hoping to make it a commercial proposition, and to crowd source

:25:06.:25:07.

suggestions for where to go on his next epic virtual tour. Virtual

:25:08.:25:15.

reality is now well into its third decade, but the technology has

:25:16.:25:17.

advanced so much in recent years that the possibilities now are

:25:18.:25:28.

almost endless. Now the reality of the weather. Good evening. Many saw

:25:29.:25:35.

decent spells of sunshine today, especially across central and

:25:36.:25:39.

eastern parts. Lovely pictures sent in from weather watchers. This

:25:40.:25:44.

tranquil scene in Fife. Not much wind around today but that changes

:25:45.:25:49.

heading into this evening. Increasing cloud but clear spells

:25:50.:25:53.

further east. Early frost for parts of the north-east, freezing

:25:54.:25:59.

temperatures. Our breaks of rain pushing in across the western isles

:26:00.:26:02.

around midnight and the West Coast by the early hours, and drawing in

:26:03.:26:07.

milder hair. By the end of the night, up seven or eight Celsius.

:26:08.:26:12.

Tomorrow cloudy and wet further towards the West. Persistent rain

:26:13.:26:15.

for Dumfries and Galloway and also Argyle. Misty and murky conditions

:26:16.:26:20.

and as the rain spread eastwards it will fragment, become like and

:26:21.:26:24.

patchy. Best of sunshine across the East Coast. Heading out at 3pm, best

:26:25.:26:31.

sunshine likely across Orkney, around the first area, too. Some

:26:32.:26:34.

mist and Merck over more inland areas up over the hills. Part of the

:26:35.:26:39.

Central Belt and also for the South West. Nine or 10 Celsius. Tuesday

:26:40.:26:45.

night into Wednesday. High pressure continues to slip further eastwards.

:26:46.:26:50.

We allow that dare to come from the south around it, and very strong

:26:51.:26:55.

winds to come, too. You see how tight the isobars are, that means

:26:56.:26:58.

stronger winds, and whether France pushing in some outbreaks of rain.

:26:59.:27:03.

Here's the map for Wednesday. Strong winds, touching gale force for temp

Skye, and the best brightness for the borders and the north-east

corner. Still quite mild, around nine to 10 Celsius. Thursday the

:27:19.:27:22.

wind direction changes subtly to more south-easterly. We draw in much

:27:23.:27:29.

colder, bitterly cold air from the continent. Only reaching three or

:27:30.:27:32.

four Celsius. And that your forecast.
