That's all from the BBC News at Six, so it's goodbye from me -

:00:00.:00:00.

Cancer patients in our most deprived communities

:00:00.:00:11.

are up to 98% more likely to die from some form of the illness

:00:12.:00:15.

40% of us will have a cancer diagnosis in our lives and the

:00:16.:00:27.

earlier that diagnosis happens, the more chance of treatment and now

:00:28.:00:33.

We'll ask why some people aren't getting that early diagnosis.

:00:34.:00:39.

Scientists say there could be reserves of oil

:00:40.:00:41.

and gas in previous dismissed areas around Rockall.

:00:42.:00:43.

We speak to the footballer fighting to save his career after betting

:00:44.:00:46.

on his own team to lose games in which he played.

:00:47.:00:49.

And, in rugby, struggling Edinburgh appoint a new head coach

:00:50.:00:51.

A cancer survival gap is growing between people in the most wealthy

:00:52.:01:21.

and deprived parts of Scotland depending on the type of cancer they

:01:22.:01:23.

have. That's the warning from

:01:24.:01:25.

Macmillan Cancer Support which says there needs to be better awareness

:01:26.:01:27.

of screening in poorer In Govan this cafe for the local

:01:28.:01:38.

community also doubles up as a drop-in centre for cancer patients.

:01:39.:01:41.

Many people who come here do not have cancer, but for those who do it

:01:42.:01:47.

provides support. This couple are both living with terminal cancer. If

:01:48.:01:52.

you are feeling lost about what help is available, there are people who

:01:53.:02:00.

are here who deal with every day. I didn't know what help there was. I

:02:01.:02:08.

lost my job through cancer. That is where it became very important to

:02:09.:02:12.

me. I knew there was somebody I could phone if I needed to. Local

:02:13.:02:17.

informal services like this one seemed to be making a difference,

:02:18.:02:23.

but across the country the analysis paints an alarming picture. McMillan

:02:24.:02:28.

looked at cancer survival rates over a five-year period and found

:02:29.:02:31.

startling variations for those living in poor communities compared

:02:32.:02:36.

to those living in affluent communities. With prostate cancer

:02:37.:02:39.

you are 98% more likely to die if you live in an area of deprivation

:02:40.:02:44.

and with breast cancer that figure was 89%. I think they are shocking

:02:45.:02:51.

and I am hoping the shock of it will help galvanise us do something and

:02:52.:02:56.

proactive. These days lung cancer does not have to be a death

:02:57.:03:00.

sentence. Adverts like this one are part of a targeted campaign. They

:03:01.:03:05.

have been successful, but the government's National clinical

:03:06.:03:09.

director says he is not surprised by the data. Late presentation is a

:03:10.:03:14.

matter of life and death. Cancer will hit 40% of us. The earlier that

:03:15.:03:20.

diagnosis happens, the more chance of treatment and now with modern

:03:21.:03:26.

techniques, it is often curable. GPs say there can be complex reasons

:03:27.:03:30.

that discourage people from poor area is seeking out help. Financial

:03:31.:03:38.

resources, ability to make a GP appointment, communication issues,

:03:39.:03:41.

education about what needs to be seen as important and perhaps even

:03:42.:03:46.

the likelihood of pushing your GP for that appointment if you are told

:03:47.:03:52.

there are none left. This cafe is a success story. 77% of its users come

:03:53.:03:58.

from deprived areas, but the fundamental question is still not

:03:59.:04:01.

answered. How to get people to seek help.

:04:02.:04:02.

MPs are debating whether a state visit to the UK by Donald

:04:03.:04:06.

More than 1.8 million people signed a petition arguing he wasn't wanted

:04:07.:04:10.

but hundreds of thousands signed a counter petition arguing that

:04:11.:04:13.

as America's president he's entitled to come.

:04:14.:04:21.

I think it is difficult to know whether to be appalled at the

:04:22.:04:28.

morality of this invitation or astonished at the stupidity of this

:04:29.:04:36.

invitation. As an example of fawning subservience, the Prime Minister 's

:04:37.:04:39.

holding hands across the ocean and visit would be difficult to match.

:04:40.:04:44.

To do it in the name of shared values was stomach churning. We are

:04:45.:04:49.

dealing with a president who is the first non-politician and the first

:04:50.:04:54.

non-service man to be elected to the office. He is different. In an

:04:55.:04:59.

exercise of pressing the right buttons to engage him, I think

:05:00.:05:04.

dangling a state visit in front of a half Scottish president of the

:05:05.:05:07.

United States whose mother had an attachment to the country was a very

:05:08.:05:12.

successful use of the kind of soft power that the United Kingdom has.

:05:13.:05:15.

Geologists say there could be reserves of oil and gas in areas

:05:16.:05:18.

around Scotland's coast which have previously been dismissed.

:05:19.:05:20.

A team has been studying rock formations around Rockall,

:05:21.:05:22.

a tiny outcrop 300 miles off the Western Isles.

:05:23.:05:24.

Our energy correspondent Kevin Keane has this exclusive report.

:05:25.:05:33.

Go on, he is on the rock. It has been an attractive destination for

:05:34.:05:42.

only the hardiest of adventurers and three years ago Nick Hancock broke

:05:43.:05:46.

the record for the most time is spent on Rockall. But now the focus

:05:47.:05:50.

is not so much on the rock above the water line, but on the ones below.

:05:51.:05:55.

We hope author and Gas has been trapped. Geologist Nick Schofield

:05:56.:06:00.

has been studying data from below the sea bed and has made a

:06:01.:06:04.

surprising finding. Previous attempts to strike oil here have

:06:05.:06:09.

almost all failed, but now he has concluded they are looking in the

:06:10.:06:15.

wrong place. That is why you get one discovery of every four or five

:06:16.:06:21.

wells that you drill. That led to the preconception of it not having

:06:22.:06:25.

anything there, but we think the wells were not drilled in the right

:06:26.:06:30.

place. His team has also been studying rock formations on sky

:06:31.:06:34.

which are similar to the Rockall basin. With all the day-to-day now

:06:35.:06:39.

conclude that volcanic activity may have pushed the odd away from the

:06:40.:06:48.

rock itself, further away from where they previously drilled. We are

:06:49.:06:53.

optimistic, but we are always very cautious and it is a very frontier

:06:54.:06:58.

area and it is a challenging place to work and it is potentially in the

:06:59.:07:03.

future going to be quite exciting, but I would not get too enthusiastic

:07:04.:07:08.

just yet. The oil and Gas industry has long been looking for new

:07:09.:07:13.

fields. Production has expanded into the harsh waters of the North

:07:14.:07:18.

Atlantic, so there are challenges and opportunities. I am confident

:07:19.:07:26.

there are companies looking at the information and there will not be a

:07:27.:07:30.

Klondike rush, this is a very expensive area to play in, but with

:07:31.:07:34.

the right companies, we will be looking hard at this. This is the

:07:35.:07:39.

first significant discovery from a two-year seismic study. With two

:07:40.:07:46.

years to go the geologists say there could be more surprises to come.

:07:47.:07:48.

One of the leading charities representing survivors of child sex

:07:49.:07:51.

abuse has been told it hasn't been granted official representation

:07:52.:07:54.

at the inquiry set up by the Scottish Government.

:07:55.:07:56.

Wellbeing Scotland says it's concerned more than 1,000 victims

:07:57.:07:58.

which it has helped will now be deterred

:07:59.:08:00.

Our Social Affairs Correspondent, Reevel Alderson joins me.

:08:01.:08:04.

Reevel, what does this mean for abuse victims?

:08:05.:08:12.

Well be in Scotland formerly operated as an open secret and it

:08:13.:08:20.

said it is not being granted core participation status in this. It has

:08:21.:08:26.

appealed against it, but it allows an organisation and its members to

:08:27.:08:30.

receive financial and legal assistance and to cross-examine

:08:31.:08:34.

witnesses in the inquiry. The charity says it is the largest

:08:35.:08:38.

organisation in Scotland dealing with historical allegations of child

:08:39.:08:44.

sex abuse and has helped 1058 people. It says it was concerned new

:08:45.:08:48.

guidelines which meant any perpetrator named in the inquiry

:08:49.:09:01.

would then be told that had happened, they feel that could deter

:09:02.:09:03.

many survivors from coming forward and therefore it was imperative that

:09:04.:09:06.

it is a charity should be able to take part fully in the inquiry. It

:09:07.:09:08.

pointed out another organisation has got core participation status.

:09:09.:09:12.

Well-being Scotland says it has been left wondering whether the size of

:09:13.:09:17.

the organisation meant that it would cost a lot more and perhaps elongate

:09:18.:09:26.

the inquiry which is due to report in late 2019. The inquiry itself

:09:27.:09:30.

said that well-being Scotland had not met the stringent criteria for

:09:31.:09:34.

organisations to play a significant role, but that was being reviewed.

:09:35.:09:37.

to play a significant role, but that was being reviewed.

:09:38.:09:40.

Floral tributes and messages of sympathy have followed the death

:09:41.:09:42.

of a two-year-old boy, whose body was recovered

:09:43.:09:44.

from the River Ericht at Bridge of Cally ,

:09:45.:09:46.

The child was reported missing yesterday morning from a property

:09:47.:09:49.

He was found just over an hour later by a fire and rescue crew

:09:50.:09:54.

Police have been searching the roadside near an Aberdeenshire

:09:55.:09:57.

village as part of an ongoing investigation into the murder

:09:58.:10:00.

The 67-year-old was found beaten to death with a "heavy

:10:01.:10:05.

weapon" in his home in Rothienorman on the 12th of March last year.

:10:06.:10:08.

Police say the search is not in response to new information.

:10:09.:10:14.

A footballer says he's fighting to save his career, after admitting

:10:15.:10:17.

betting on his own team to lose games in which he played.

:10:18.:10:21.

Dean Brett is currently suspended by Cowdenbeath and is to be charged

:10:22.:10:25.

by the Scottish Football Association for placing thousands of bets.

:10:26.:10:28.

The player - who's come through recent personal tragedies -

:10:29.:10:32.

Dean Brett at home with his dog Maisie. It has been a rough couple

:10:33.:10:47.

of years in the Brett has sold with the death firstly of a baby daughter

:10:48.:10:52.

and just a few months later Dean's partner died of cancer. It has just

:10:53.:10:58.

been tough moments and when you see something that reminds you of it, it

:10:59.:11:03.

is really tough. Anniversaries, birthdays, events that happen in

:11:04.:11:07.

other people's lives that can relate to you. You get upset about that and

:11:08.:11:13.

it is tough. Even before those tragedies Brett had made no secret

:11:14.:11:17.

of betting on football despite knowing it was against SFA rules.

:11:18.:11:22.

The social media posts eventually came to the authorities' attention.

:11:23.:11:28.

He had to answer charges that he plays 2000 bets on a total of 6369

:11:29.:11:35.

matches. Cowdenbeath say most concerning for them either figures

:11:36.:11:42.

of 65 of their matches, eight of which were Dean Brett played in five

:11:43.:11:49.

of those games. Since I went home on Thursday I was just thinking what

:11:50.:11:54.

happens here? I do not want to leave Cowdenbeath. I have had the

:11:55.:11:58.

opportunity before, but I have always wanted to stay with them. Now

:11:59.:12:03.

that I have let them down, for them to release me I will not accept it.

:12:04.:12:09.

What I have done is not acceptable, and if that is the way they go, fair

:12:10.:12:14.

enough. Of the other players who have fallen foul of the SFA rules on

:12:15.:12:20.

gambling, only Ian Black had bet against his own team. He served a

:12:21.:12:26.

three match ban and was fined ?7,500. None have bet on as many

:12:27.:12:31.

games as Brett who faces a disciplinary tomorrow. None have

:12:32.:12:35.

faced the personal drama Brett has, not an excuse, but a poignant twist

:12:36.:12:37.

to a tale of human frailty. A reminder of tonight's top story:

:12:38.:12:42.

Cancer patients in our most deprived communities are up to 98% more

:12:43.:12:45.

likely to die from some forms of the illness than those

:12:46.:12:48.

from affluent areas. And still to come: The research

:12:49.:12:51.

into the cells in our bodies that could transform the treatment

:12:52.:12:55.

of diseases like diabetes. Campaigners for disability rights

:12:56.:13:03.

continue to raise concerns about the way the Department

:13:04.:13:05.

for Work and Pensions has tried Some claimants of Disability Living

:13:06.:13:08.

Allowance say they're losing out But the DWP says more people are now

:13:09.:13:13.

receiving the higher rate of support than before the changes

:13:14.:13:19.

were brought in. The Scottish Government

:13:20.:13:22.

is about to take control of social security and, as Ian Hamilton

:13:23.:13:24.

reports, it says it will take Maureen has been on disability

:13:25.:13:42.

benefits for 25 years. I cannot walk too far, it restricts me for a lot

:13:52.:13:54.

about. She is currently being and Pensions as she is transferred

:13:55.:13:57.

from disability living allowance to personal independence payments. The

:13:58.:14:03.

transition has been tough. You had your letter for the PIP, what has

:14:04.:14:10.

been happening since then? I went to the assessment, I have waited eight

:14:11.:14:15.

weeks to be told that I had been dropped from 12 points down to ten

:14:16.:14:21.

on the mobility side which takes my cart away. On the care side for

:14:22.:14:28.

getting help I got six points instead of eight, so I did not

:14:29.:14:33.

qualify for anything. The Department of Work and Pensions told me that

:14:34.:14:39.

under PIP over a quarter of climbers are now receiving the highest rate

:14:40.:14:44.

of support. Anyone who disagrees has the right to appeal. The Scottish

:14:45.:14:49.

social security minister says they want to have a fairer system when

:14:50.:14:52.

they take over. What is clear just now is that that whole procedure the

:14:53.:14:58.

people need to go through with a lengthy application form that you

:14:59.:15:01.

can only access digitally, which makes it very difficult for many,

:15:02.:15:06.

the medical assessments conducted in assessment centres, which are

:15:07.:15:11.

costly, all of that I think is unnecessary in the system that we

:15:12.:15:15.

can design which will still be evidence -based in terms of medical

:15:16.:15:23.

evidence and social care evidence. Disability campaigners welcomed the

:15:24.:15:26.

Scottish government proposals, but they are concerned about the

:15:27.:15:31.

timescale. We would like cross-party agreement to implement a moratorium

:15:32.:15:36.

on assessment in Scotland until such time as we have power. Secondly, to

:15:37.:15:43.

put into place a system whereby if a disabled person can demonstrate

:15:44.:15:48.

through medical evidence that they're in him and has not improved

:15:49.:15:52.

or has remained the same, the government should step in and

:15:53.:15:56.

mitigate those cuts. In a few years the Scottish government will be

:15:57.:16:00.

looking to control this, what would you like them to do differently?

:16:01.:16:07.

They can treat everybody a wee bit more compassionate, speak to people

:16:08.:16:10.

and try to understand what is going on and what is wrong with them. Take

:16:11.:16:15.

a bit more time. The Scottish government have been criticised for

:16:16.:16:19.

not introducing welfare reform sooner. They say they want to get it

:16:20.:16:21.

right and that takes time. Exports of single malt Scotch

:16:22.:16:24.

whisky topped ?1 billion The United States remained

:16:25.:16:26.

the biggest market by value, while France was the

:16:27.:16:30.

biggest by volume. And there was a significant increase

:16:31.:16:32.

in the amount bought by India. Police Scotland say plans to double

:16:33.:16:37.

the penalty for driving while using a mobile phone or tablet

:16:38.:16:39.

will come into force The Department for Transport

:16:40.:16:43.

announced last year that it was planning to increase

:16:44.:16:47.

the points from three to six, and the fine from ?100

:16:48.:16:50.

to ?200 across the UK. A look at other stories

:16:51.:16:56.

from across the country. Edinburgh is set to benefit

:16:57.:17:01.

from a jobs boost from It's creating 5,000 full-time

:17:02.:17:03.

jobs throughout the UK, and an undisclosed

:17:04.:17:07.

number will be in the capital. A 25-year-old man has appeared

in court accused of causing Dean Yeats from Forfar is alleged

:17:13.:17:14.

to have started the blaze at a water He made no plea or declaration

and was released on bail. Fishing access should not be traded

:17:22.:17:28.

away during the Brexit talks. That's the message industry leaders

:17:29.:17:33.

in Shetland delivered to Scotland's Rural Affairs Secretary,

:17:34.:17:37.

Fergus Ewing, as he announced public funding for the sector

:17:38.:17:40.

on a visit to the islands. The signs are that the UK Government

:17:41.:17:53.

seems to be ready to trade away permanent access, to trade away that

:17:54.:17:59.

sea of opportunity, as part of a wider Brexit negotiation, and that

:18:00.:18:05.

they seem to be ready to sacrifice the European market which is so

:18:06.:18:09.

important. 80% of the fish processed here go to Europe.

:18:10.:18:12.

There's concern school children on Mull could face lengthy journeys

:18:13.:18:14.

for dental treatment when an island dentist retires

:18:15.:18:16.

NHS Highland has re-advertised for a dentist to take over

:18:17.:18:20.

from Chris Price, who also drives the island's mobile surgery.

:18:21.:18:22.

But it's feared that when he leaves there'll no longer be

Sumburgh Airport in Shetland has been refurbished at a cost

:18:26.:18:30.

Transport Minister Humza Yousaf unveiled a specially-commissioned

:18:31.:18:36.

Improvements include larger security screening areas and upgrades

:18:37.:18:42.

For the last two and a half or three years, we have invested a little

:18:43.:18:58.

over ?23 million into the facility, and it is very important for the

:18:59.:19:05.

island, the community and for the oil industry that we support.

:19:06.:19:07.

A project combining biophysics and mathematics is challenging

:19:08.:19:09.

existing theories about some of the most important

:19:10.:19:11.

Researchers at Heriot-Watt University believe it could have

:19:12.:19:14.

implications for future treatment of diseases like diabetes.

:19:15.:19:15.

This from our science correspondent, Kenneth Macdonald.

:19:16.:19:24.

If you are well, this is going on inside you right now. It is a cell

:19:25.:19:32.

of the kind that creates the hormone insulin. The moving dots are bubbles

:19:33.:19:38.

that carry those substances to where they are needed. Until now, there

:19:39.:19:42.

was something wrong with the picture. Most of biology knows that

:19:43.:19:48.

these things move on railroads. You can see them moving around inside

:19:49.:19:52.

the cell. When they get to the cell surface, we found we could not find

:19:53.:19:58.

these railroads any more, so it seemed there was something missing.

:19:59.:20:02.

This is setting of 100 different particles... What the researchers

:20:03.:20:09.

found was that on the cell's surface, these were avoiding

:20:10.:20:14.

molecules. It needed a lot of advanced maths. We have shown that

:20:15.:20:23.

these vesicles move between these other molecules, and they will do so

:20:24.:20:29.

with some randomness. It took seven years of treating the cells, looking

:20:30.:20:34.

through some of the world's most powerful microscopes, and using an

:20:35.:20:40.

enormous amount of data. Maths and data had to speak the same language.

:20:41.:20:45.

One of the biggest challenges of my Ph.D.. Learning a different language

:20:46.:20:47.

to speak with mathematicians! Ph.D.. Learning a different language

:20:48.:20:53.

findings of implications for medicine are more. If you have

:20:54.:20:59.

certain conditions, like diabetes, something has probably gone wrong

:21:00.:21:03.

with the movement of these vesicles inside yourselves. We don't know

:21:04.:21:08.

what. This new work gives us a strong starting point to try to

:21:09.:21:13.

investigate. This approach is going to be used not just for this model,

:21:14.:21:19.

not just for this biology. It is going to be used in finance, in

:21:20.:21:24.

astronomy, all over the place. The research shows that mathematics

:21:25.:21:28.

underpins all of the rest of science. It is helping us look at

:21:29.:21:32.

things that even the most powerful microscopes cannot see.

:21:33.:21:35.

Edinburgh Rugby have appointed a new head coach.

:21:36.:21:37.

He's the former England international and Leicester

:21:38.:21:40.

coach, Richard Cockerill, and will start his

as the capital club try to improve their fortunes.

This has been a familiar scene for Edinburgh fans. Defeat to Leinster

has failed to ignite. They are hoping this man can change that.

:22:11.:22:16.

Richard Cockerill played 27 times for England. He enjoyed great

:22:17.:22:20.

success as coach of Leicester, leading them to European Cup final.

He left their earlier this season and is now a consultant at the

keen to install a coach of proven quality, and they believe that

:22:43.:22:45.

Richard Cockerill is a major coup for Scottish rugby. This is a big

:22:46.:22:47.

statement of our intent and our ambition. We recognise where we want

:22:48.:22:51.

the club to go, and we wanted to be a successful club, and emulate and

:22:52.:22:57.

surpass where Glasgow have been in the past years. An exciting

:22:58.:23:01.

appointment for Edinburgh. We have an underperforming group of players.

:23:02.:23:05.

We need somebody who can put a rocket under them and make them

:23:06.:23:10.

perform better. Duncan Hodge has been inconsistent, but he will

:23:11.:23:14.

remain at the club to work with the new man in charge. It is great that

:23:15.:23:18.

Richard Cockerill has been brought in. He is an experienced coach, and

:23:19.:23:24.

has won at the highest level. Both him and Hodge will be a good mix. So

:23:25.:23:31.

I think it is a good thing. An appointment to excite the Edinburgh

fans, but a big challenge for Cockerill to get the club back on

Wednesday, quite a blustery start to the day. Some of those showers could
