Green? It's believed half of mental health

:01:10.:01:11.

problems begin before the age of 15, however some young people

:01:12.:01:16.

are waiting more than a year to access a mental health service

:01:17.:01:19.

specifically designed to help them. Unlike the rest of the UK -

:01:20.:01:23.

Scotland has no national strategy for school-based counselling

:01:24.:01:26.

services. Charities and youth organisations

:01:27.:01:29.

say there's a postcode lottery of provision and that the service,

:01:30.:01:34.

called CAMHS - has consistently failed to meet

:01:35.:01:36.

its waiting time targets. Our health correspondent

:01:37.:01:39.

Lisa Summers reports. I have two parents who are both drug

:01:40.:01:51.

addicts. Courtney says her mental health problems started at the age

:01:52.:01:55.

of 12. Everything seemed to get worse. I was struggling with panic

:01:56.:02:00.

attacks. Over coffee with fellow members of the Scottish youth

both parents to drug addiction and the struggle to get help. I accessed

:02:06.:02:11.

CAMHS once but I did not go back. You are not guaranteed to see the

:02:12.:02:16.

same person twice. You have to tell your story over and over again.

:02:17.:02:21.

Every emotion you feel, you have to go through it again. I had seen

:02:22.:02:27.

things that ten years old that no child should ever see in their life.

:02:28.:02:33.

I was brought up to bottle up my issues. I suffered with an eating

:02:34.:02:38.

disorder for some time and that battle has lasted and it is

:02:39.:02:43.

something I live with still today. Erin McAuley got support at school

:02:44.:02:48.

but felt stranded when she got to university. It was spiralling out of

:02:49.:02:53.

control. I went for help. It was five months before got a letter and

:02:54.:02:56.

I never went to my appointment because by that point I had finished

:02:57.:03:01.

my exams and I was moving to Glasgow. The Scottish Government's

:03:02.:03:06.

on targets for counselling services have been missed ever since they

:03:07.:03:10.

were introduced. 22% of those referred to CAMHS were not seen

:03:11.:03:16.

within 18 weeks and 708 children waited over a year to see a

:03:17.:03:22.

counsellor. CAMHS was oversubscribed. It is difficult to

:03:23.:03:25.

get an appointment. The threshold is pretty high. You have to be quite

:03:26.:03:28.

distressed and quite ill to get to CAMHS at the moment. This is the

:03:29.:03:35.

sort of early intervention that can make a difference. Cowdenbeath

:03:36.:03:38.

primary school funded their mental health kit bags. Today I'm feeling

:03:39.:03:44.

orange because I am feeling a bit angry but I am mostly feeling

:03:45.:03:50.

really, really happy. Local authorities say budget pressures

:03:51.:03:54.

have led to a lack of psychologists and support staff. The government

:03:55.:03:58.

says it is investing in services to meet targets that says it is up to

:03:59.:04:03.

councils to do more in schools. Guess, it is a postcode lottery.

:04:04.:04:09.

There are some which have great mental health and well-being

:04:10.:04:11.

strategy is already in place in their local authority areas. We are

:04:12.:04:16.

not starting from a 0.4. There are good practices in many local

:04:17.:04:18.

authority areas, we just need to good practices in many local

:04:19.:04:22.

make sure that is uniform throughout the country. Back at the cafe, these

:04:23.:04:27.

young people say it helps them to talk. Now they say it will -- they

:04:28.:04:32.

hope it will help others too. Starts now than in generations to come you

:04:33.:04:36.

will not have these problems. Young boys need to feel they can talk

:04:37.:04:40.

about their problems. The more you can speak about it and the more I

:04:41.:04:44.

hear other people's stories, it begins to give me hope for the

:04:45.:04:46.

future. A 13-year-old boy who was found

:04:47.:04:50.

in Edinburgh after going missing over the weekend has

:04:51.:04:52.

died in hospital. Police say Blake Ross,

:04:53.:04:54.

who's believed to have had diabetes, fell ill on a bus in the city centre

:04:55.:04:57.

on Monday evening. An investigation into police

:04:58.:05:00.

actions has now begun. Police now say that 13-year-old

:05:01.:05:11.

Blake Ross, who was living in care and had gone missing and had been

:05:12.:05:15.

missing since Saturday afternoon, was found ill on a bus here in

:05:16.:05:21.

Leopold place in London Road in the middle of Edinburgh on Monday

:05:22.:05:24.

afternoon at four o'clock. The driver of the bus called the police

:05:25.:05:29.

when he discovered Blake was ill and also radioed into his own garage

:05:30.:05:34.

control room for help. Blake was taken to hospital in Edinburgh but

:05:35.:05:39.

unfortunately, he died on Monday evening at nine o'clock. Police say

:05:40.:05:42.

the cause of death is unexplained but we understand it is linked to

:05:43.:05:46.

Blake's underlying health condition for which he was taking medication.

:05:47.:05:53.

The number four bus which Blake was discovered on travels across

:05:54.:05:56.

Edinburgh from east to west, on a route which starts not far from

:05:57.:06:00.

where Blake was seen on Saturday afternoon at Howden Hall at around

:06:01.:06:05.

3:30pm. Police would like anybody who knows anything about Blake's

:06:06.:06:09.

movements on Saturday afternoon, to get in touch as they proceed with

:06:10.:06:11.

this investigation. A charity which supports survivors

:06:12.:06:14.

of sex abuse is asking the Scottish FA to think again about the man

:06:15.:06:17.

they have appointed to chair their review

:06:18.:06:20.

of child abuse in football. The SFA announced earlier this month

:06:21.:06:22.

that Martin Henry would take on that role but the charity says concerns

:06:23.:06:25.

have been raised about his SFA match official Hugh Stevenson

:06:26.:06:38.

and Partick Thistle physio John Hart. Both men now dead but the

:06:39.:06:42.

anger and concern that allegations they had abused young footballers

:06:43.:06:44.

were not dealt with properly, is still very much present. The

:06:45.:06:49.

Scottish Government currently running their own enquiry into abuse

:06:50.:06:55.

of children in care settings, urged the SFA to consider setting up a

:06:56.:06:58.

specific enquiry about abuse in football as the FA in England has

:06:59.:07:04.

done. To be more proactive in how we deal with matters... The SFA agreed

:07:05.:07:11.

and announced Martin Henry is the man who will chair it. Mr Henry,

:07:12.:07:17.

they explained, has over 40 years clinical and friends had experience

:07:18.:07:20.

in the field of child and public protection and most recently was

:07:21.:07:24.

national manager of the National programme for the prevention of

:07:25.:07:27.

child sexual abuse. Mr Henry's I Greg Feek states: Martin's

:07:28.:07:34.

professional expertise is in the investigation and assessment of

:07:35.:07:37.

child sexual abuse and are working with men who have problematic sexual

:07:38.:07:40.

behaviours, including those who offend online.

:07:41.:07:44.

It is the amount of work which Mr Henry has done with offenders which

:07:45.:07:48.

is concerning some abuse survivors. We could look at it and say yes, he

:07:49.:07:54.

has the perfect background, he knows all about perpetrators and the

:07:55.:07:58.

prevention agenda. It is how it feels to survivors which is the main

:07:59.:08:01.

prevention agenda. It is how it issue. How does it feel to the

:08:02.:08:05.

survivors who have raised concerns? They feel it is summer day who does

:08:06.:08:09.

not understand their needs, they will only understand the

:08:10.:08:13.

perpetrator's needs. They don't feel he is the right person to look into

:08:14.:08:19.

what that means for survivors. Six years ago in Edinburgh, the men at

:08:20.:08:23.

the centre of the largest child abuse network uncovered in Scotland

:08:24.:08:26.

were sentenced to lengthy prison terms. One of them, James Rennie was

:08:27.:08:33.

jailed for 16 years, sexually -- for sexually abusing her baby and

:08:34.:08:39.

sharing pictures. He was the chief executive of LGBT youth and Martin

:08:40.:08:45.

Henry was the convener of the board. Martin Henry was not involved in

:08:46.:08:49.

anyway and youngsters who used the service were not among James

:08:50.:08:57.

Rennie's victims. Some survivors believe having not spotted a

:08:58.:09:02.

paedophile working in the same organisation, Mr Henry's position is

:09:03.:09:07.

weakened as chair of a wide-ranging enquiry. Some may see it as unfair

:09:08.:09:12.

that he could not be in that role, he did not pick up on something

:09:13.:09:15.

which many of us would not have picked up on, but again it is the

:09:16.:09:19.

whole nature of people having trust in this enquiry. It is how survivors

:09:20.:09:23.

feel which is the most important thing. The most important thing is

:09:24.:09:28.

for survivors to fully engage in the enquiry process and trust in it. We

:09:29.:09:33.

have tried to reach Martin Henry but he is out of the country at the

:09:34.:09:39.

moment. The Scottish FA said they consulted a wide group of

:09:40.:09:42.

stakeholders, including survivors' groups. The chair has amassed

:09:43.:09:48.

unrivalled experience in many facets of child protection in a 40 year

:09:49.:09:52.

career, including his role as vice convener to the Scottish Parliament

:09:53.:09:58.

cross party group on survivors of sexual abuse.

:09:59.:10:00.

Janine Rennie and an abuse of either met with the SFA yesterday and she

:10:01.:10:04.

said that was a constructive meeting but she waits to see how they

:10:05.:10:09.

respond to the concerns they raised. This highlights the difficulty in

:10:10.:10:14.

appointing the chair to such sensitive enquiries, which will be

:10:15.:10:17.

acceptable to all of those who wish to take part, especially those who

:10:18.:10:21.

have been abused. For them, the issue of trust is central.

:10:22.:10:26.

Urgent safety checks should be carried out on hundreds of public

:10:27.:10:28.

buildings constructed after the year 2000.

:10:29.:10:30.

That's according to the Royal Incorporation

:10:31.:10:32.

of Architects in Scotland, which says that a lack of scrutiny

:10:33.:10:34.

It follows the publication of a report which raised concerns

:10:35.:10:39.

about building standards at 17 schools in Edinburgh.

:10:40.:10:43.

Well, our correspondent Andrew Kerr is in the centre of Glasgow tonight.

:10:44.:10:48.

Andrew, a stark warning from the architects' body?

:10:49.:10:56.

Yes, it is indeed. A very stark warning from the architects. They

:10:57.:11:05.

say do not underestimate the report because lives are at risk here. I am

:11:06.:11:09.

standing in front of one architectural gem, the city

:11:10.:11:14.

Chambers, belonging to Glasgow City Council. Well built, well

:11:15.:11:18.

maintained, standing here since Victorian times. But the architects

:11:19.:11:22.

are laying down a challenge to every local authority, every health board,

:11:23.:11:26.

every public body in Scotland, you need to carry safety checks on

:11:27.:11:30.

public buildings which have been constructed since the year 2000.

:11:31.:11:38.

This is in the wake of the coal report which was commissioned after

:11:39.:11:43.

the incident at a primary school in Edinburgh January 2016, when one

:11:44.:11:46.

wall collapsed, sending nine tonnes of masonry crashing down. Defects

:11:47.:11:52.

were found in another 16 schools. The architects are saying that is

:11:53.:11:56.

why it is very important that checks must be carried out, because it

:11:57.:12:00.

would be naive to assume that there are not similar problems in other

:12:01.:12:04.

buildings right across Scotland. But the architects' proposals are also

:12:05.:12:11.

being seen as quite controversial? Guest-macro, it is quite a

:12:12.:12:16.

controversial proposal. The main criticism is that this is

:12:17.:12:19.

essentially a job creation scheme for them. I put that to the Royal

:12:20.:12:24.

incorporation of up to when I spoke to them earlier. -- I put that to

:12:25.:12:28.

the Royal Incorporation of Architects. They say quantity

:12:29.:12:35.

surveyors, engineers and architects can all be called upon to carry out

:12:36.:12:40.

the specialist checks on these buildings. They say local

:12:41.:12:44.

authorities and public bodies must now muster all the specialists to

:12:45.:12:48.

carry out these checks because it is a very stark warning, a very real

:12:49.:12:55.

challenge for public bodies in Scotland.

:12:56.:12:56.

Two footballers ruled to be rapists by a judge in a civil action have

:12:57.:12:59.

begun an appeal process which could lead to a full legal

:13:00.:13:02.

Former Dundee United team-mates David Goodwillie and David Robertson

:13:03.:13:05.

were ordered to pay agreed damages of ?100,000 to Denise Clair

:13:06.:13:08.

following a hearing at the Court of Session.

:13:09.:13:10.

Neither man faced a criminal prosecution and both claimed sex

:13:11.:13:12.

Both men are applying for legal aid for the appeal process.

:13:13.:13:18.

The price of Scottish farmed salmon is standing at a record high.

:13:19.:13:22.

That's partly because of demand, but also because the

:13:23.:13:25.

It's due to sea lice, a parasite which has become

:13:26.:13:30.

a serious problem for the industry, particularly in Scotland.

:13:31.:13:35.

Our business and economy editor, Douglas Fraser, has been

:13:36.:13:37.

Scottish salmon sells on a clean pristine environment. Fish grown

:13:38.:13:53.

here could be exported to 50 countries. Demand has leapt and so

:13:54.:13:57.

has the price because the mind has dropped. That is because of sea lice

:13:58.:14:02.

which floated on the tide. With warming waters, they are becoming

:14:03.:14:06.

more of a problem. They have become resistant to the chemicals used in

:14:07.:14:10.

fish food to combat them. They are very hard to eradicate and for

:14:11.:14:14.

growing salmon they make them more vulnerable to disease. What should

:14:15.:14:19.

be done? Options include chemical treatment. Marine Harvest saw its

:14:20.:14:24.

use of hydrogen peroxide saw 15 fold over four years without getting on

:14:25.:14:27.

top of the problem. There are cleaner fish which eat nice. Or a

:14:28.:14:35.

warm bath which shocks the life and knocks them off but it is not that

:14:36.:14:41.

easy. Last year on at least one occasion it went badly wrong. This

:14:42.:14:45.

is a new piece of equipment we have acquired and we tried it on one of

:14:46.:14:50.

our farms and unfortunately we lost a lot of fish, 460 tonnes of fish in

:14:51.:14:57.

that process. That is nearly 100,000 fish killed. It is a lot of fish and

:14:58.:15:03.

it is extremely regrettable. The evidence suggests this is a problem

:15:04.:15:08.

which has got out of control. I would not agree with that. Some

:15:09.:15:13.

areas are worse than others. Some farms have had very little impact at

:15:14.:15:15.

areas are worse than others. Some all. For us as farmers, the

:15:16.:15:19.

important thing is to monitor the fish on a regular basis. Our aim is

:15:20.:15:24.

to use mechanical methods and to use cleaner fish to get rid of lice on

:15:25.:15:30.

our fish. The tonnage of salmon produced last year slumped. Average

:15:31.:15:35.

fish size is down. Many are slaughtered before an infestation of

:15:36.:15:41.

life can take hold. It is a serious economic problem right now. Although

:15:42.:15:46.

price of salmon is really high. Most farms do not have any problem

:15:47.:15:49.

covering the additional cost. For farms do not have any problem

:15:50.:15:53.

the salmon industry, it is a much bigger challenge that they have a

:15:54.:15:56.

parasite, that they cannot handle well now. What about the consumer,

:15:57.:16:04.

will the lice put people off? It is a national phenomenon. It is all

:16:05.:16:10.

part of the national process. It is a farming environment. All livestock

:16:11.:16:14.

and farms, be they terrestrial or marine are encountering some kind of

:16:15.:16:20.

either a parasite or a kick or whatever if it is sheep farming. And

:16:21.:16:25.

they are dealt with and that is part of livestock farming.

:16:26.:16:31.

It's a problem that will have to be sorted and quickly if Scotland is to

:16:32.:16:38.

hit the industry's new target of doubling salmon production within 13

:16:39.:16:43.

years. Douglas, Frazier, Reporting Scotland.

nuclear technology. The history of this and other nuclear power

archive which is priceless in scientific terms, but in social

:18:50.:18:52.

history terms it will be valuable, too. It was a small fishing town

before the nuclear industry. You can see the growth that took place and

ended up with 2,500 well-paid jobs in the area. They will be hard to
