The Prime Minister attacks the SNP for being obsessed

:00:11.:00:14.

They've accused her of "mind-boggling hypocrisy".

:00:15.:00:16.

The dramatic rescue of five fishermen from the sea off

:00:17.:00:19.

Shetland as their boat sinks in a matter of minutes.

:00:20.:00:21.

A warning that Scotland's sweet tooth and bad diet

:00:22.:00:23.

means the nation faces an increased risk of cancer.

:00:24.:00:30.

We just eat what we want, as far as I'm concerned. I've got my bacon,

:00:31.:00:39.

with all the fat stuff. But I enjoy it. I think a wee bit of chocolate

:00:40.:00:42.

allowed. All the fun of the fair -

:00:43.:00:42.

we take a look at an exhibition And disappointment for

:00:43.:00:46.

Eilidh Doyle as she's caught on the line to go out of the 400

:00:47.:00:50.

metres at the European Indoor The Prime Minister has promised

:00:51.:00:53.

a new, more active union in an effort to strengthen the links

:00:54.:01:14.

between Scotland and England. At the Conservative conference

:01:15.:01:16.

in Glasgow, Theresa May warned against what she called allowing

:01:17.:01:19.

the UK to "drift apart". She said unity would be more vital

:01:20.:01:21.

than ever after Brexit. This from our political

:01:22.:01:24.

editor Brian Taylor. They are Tory, Unionist, they don't

:01:25.:01:40.

need convincing. The Prime Minister knows that others do. She argued

:01:41.:01:46.

that Brexit made the unity of the UK more vital still. As Britain leaves

:01:47.:01:50.

the European Union and we forge a new place in the world, the strength

:01:51.:01:54.

and stability of our union will become ever more important. And the

:01:55.:02:01.

core union values? Solidarity, Unity, family. Was that just a

:02:02.:02:07.

little socialist sounding? Certainly not. She deplored a tendency for

:02:08.:02:13.

Whitehall to forget Scotland. She wanted a new, active union, outside

:02:14.:02:18.

the EU. At all times we will seek to strengthen and enhance the ties that

:02:19.:02:25.

bind us together. I am determined to ensure that as we leave the EU, we

:02:26.:02:31.

do so as one United Kingdom, which prospers outside the EU has one

:02:32.:02:37.

United Kingdom. Farming and fishing, that might mean returning powers and

:02:38.:02:42.

subsidy from Brussels, only to create new common structures across

:02:43.:02:47.

the UK. Nationalists call it a power grab. Tories say it is practical

:02:48.:02:52.

unionism. Still no word as to what the Prime Minister does if Nicola

:02:53.:02:56.

Sturgeon demands the power to hold another independence referendum. She

:02:57.:03:02.

should block it. But it might go towards Scotland's interests if she

:03:03.:03:06.

does not, because if the SNP got another and lost, they can't have

:03:07.:03:11.

another. As the British government, we should have a say on when the

:03:12.:03:15.

referendum is held and what the question might be. We do street

:03:16.:03:20.

stalls against a second referendum and people elbow each other out of

:03:21.:03:26.

the way to sign the petition. The Scottish Secretary appeals to the

:03:27.:03:29.

First Minister to ditch talks of a second referendum but confirmed a

:03:30.:03:34.

possible process. If there is a request for an independence

:03:35.:03:37.

referendum, the process is the same as previously. There would have to

:03:38.:03:40.

be agreement between the governments. We have always been

:03:41.:03:44.

clear there could be another independence referendum. Our

:03:45.:03:47.

argument is that there should not be one. Back on stage, the final act

:03:48.:03:55.

was the act of union. We are four nations, but at heart we are one

:03:56.:03:59.

people. That solidarity is the essence of our United Kingdom and is

:04:00.:04:05.

the surest, -- the surest safeguard of its future. Let us live up to

:04:06.:04:09.

that high ideal and let us never stopped making loudly and clearly

:04:10.:04:13.

the positive, optimistic and passionate case for our precious

:04:14.:04:19.

union of nations, and of people. Thank you.

:04:20.:04:24.

Brian joins us from the conference in Glasgow.

:04:25.:04:32.

I do not think we are any clearer as to what she would do about a second

:04:33.:04:38.

referendum if the Scottish Government decided to call one.

:04:39.:04:40.

Where do we go from here? Well, the two sides,

:04:41.:04:51.

the champions of unionism and nationalism, they are poles apart

:04:52.:04:56.

might. Indeed, the SNP commented upon the speech by the Prime

:04:57.:05:01.

Minister, saying it was surreal and hypocritical. Given that it was a

:05:02.:05:06.

Conservative initiative which brought about the attendant

:05:07.:05:10.

constitutional conundrum facing the UK in Scotland. Each side have been

:05:11.:05:15.

chastising the other. Senior Tories say that the SNP talk consensus and

:05:16.:05:18.

then ratchet up the rhetoric about independence. SNP ministers in the

:05:19.:05:23.

Scottish Government say that they attend ministers -- they attend

:05:24.:05:28.

meetings with UK ministers which are futile because ministers do not

:05:29.:05:33.

engage seriously with the prospect of the situation regarding Scotland

:05:34.:05:38.

post Brexit. So you have a situation here at the Tory party where Theresa

:05:39.:05:43.

May's speech was trying to pre-empt a plebiscite. But it would equally

:05:44.:05:47.

well work as a campaign speech in that referendum, should it happen.

:05:48.:05:50.

Thank you very Ambulance staff in the north-east

:05:51.:05:53.

are threatening industrial action over claims that emergency cover

:05:54.:05:55.

is being compromised. It's in response to concerns that

:05:56.:05:57.

ambulances are not available for 999 calls because they are being used

:05:58.:06:00.

for non-emergency patient transport. Members of the Unite union also

:06:01.:06:02.

claim that staff consistently work over their hours

:06:03.:06:05.

and suffer from fatigue. It is about lack of staff, lack of

:06:06.:06:20.

ambulances, about into hospital transfers, where ambulances are used

:06:21.:06:24.

to transfer patients from one hospital to another, when we believe

:06:25.:06:27.

the ambulance is not required for that transfer. But the management at

:06:28.:06:32.

the top and people in the health service see fit to use ambulances as

:06:33.:06:36.

a taxi service, and that has to stop.

:06:37.:06:37.

What's the background? Well, the Unite union is claiming the problems

:06:38.:06:52.

have been ongoing for two years. It says that ambulances cannot attend

:06:53.:06:57.

my 99 calls because they are used to transfer patients to and from

:06:58.:07:01.

hospital. It also says emergency cover in Aberdeen is propped up by

:07:02.:07:07.

crews from rural areas, which is causing shortages of cover for those

:07:08.:07:13.

communities. There is also concern about workers suffering from

:07:14.:07:16.

fatigue, because they have been asked to work over and above their

:07:17.:07:23.

scheduled working hours. 95% of those balloted said they had no

:07:24.:07:27.

confidence in management. The Scottish Ambulance Service says it

:07:28.:07:30.

has invested significantly in the North in the past few years,

:07:31.:07:35.

recruiting around 100 extra staff, but it does admit that more can be

:07:36.:07:41.

done. Is this confined to the north-east? Well, this is not a new

:07:42.:07:45.

criticism that has been brought north-east? Well, this is not a new

:07:46.:07:50.

earlier this week. The Chief Executive of the Scottish Ambulance

:07:51.:07:52.

earlier this week. The Chief Service was in Sutherland to discuss

:07:53.:07:57.

concerns about provision in the Highlands. Some residents had raised

:07:58.:08:04.

concerns about patient transport Hospital in Inverness. They were

:08:05.:08:10.

claiming that reaching hospital by ambulance or by public transport was

:08:11.:08:14.

becoming increasingly difficult. As for the situation in Aberdeen, a

:08:15.:08:20.

meeting is expected to take place between the union and management

:08:21.:08:25.

within the next few weeks. Unite is threatening industrial action if the

:08:26.:08:26.

matter is not resolved. Thank you. The crew of a fishing boat

:08:27.:08:32.

are recovering tonight after a lucky escape when their boat began

:08:33.:08:35.

to sink off Shetland. The crew of the Ocean Way

:08:36.:08:37.

were forced to jump into the sea The final moments of the Ocean Way.

:08:38.:08:52.

The crew prepared to jump for their lives. In less than a minute, their

:08:53.:08:58.

60 foot boat sinks below the waves. Just as we got alongside, the boat

:08:59.:09:02.

started to sink and the boys jumped into the water alongside the

:09:03.:09:07.

lifeboat. We fished them in and hoisted them aboard. Once she

:09:08.:09:14.

stopped moving and was rolling, it was more difficult, which was why

:09:15.:09:18.

they jumped into the water. It was safer than getting trapped between

:09:19.:09:22.

the boats. We hoisted them up, got them aboard. Two of our crew were in

:09:23.:09:27.

the water with them, keeping them close to the boat. We got them on

:09:28.:09:31.

board, got their wet clothes off and wrapped them in dry clothing. It was

:09:32.:09:37.

just before 7am when the crew sent out a Mayday. It is believed the

:09:38.:09:42.

vessel's trawl door may have struck the bottom of the boat. For over an

:09:43.:09:47.

hour they battle to save the vessel, taking two pumps on board to try to

:09:48.:09:51.

stem the surge of water, but it was not to be. Around 10am, the

:09:52.:09:59.

fisherman arrived back in harbour. After a checkup from paramedics, who

:10:00.:10:02.

boarded the lifeboat, they were finally back on dry land. The final

:10:03.:10:08.

moments were the bow of the boat sticking out of the water. It went

:10:09.:10:12.

down within seconds. Less than one minute from when they decided to

:10:13.:10:17.

jump until she disappeared. Marine accident investigators have launched

:10:18.:10:18.

an enquiry into the sinking. An investigation has been launched

:10:19.:10:21.

after a man was found dead in a village near Stirling two days

:10:22.:10:23.

after his family contacted police. The 51-year-old's body

:10:24.:10:26.

was discovered at a house in Fallin The Police Investigations

:10:27.:10:28.

and Review Commissioner inquiry will focus on Police Scotland's

:10:29.:10:32.

response to a phone call There is a warning that we are

:10:33.:10:35.

hurtling towards an epidemic of larger waistlines and with it

:10:36.:10:43.

an increased risk of cancer. The charity Cancer Research UK says

:10:44.:10:46.

it's being fuelled by our love It says being overweight

:10:47.:10:49.

was the single biggest cause Tempting, isn't it, a shop full of

:10:50.:11:09.

sweets? Guidelines say that sugar should form no more than 5% of our

:11:10.:11:15.

diet, but on average adults and children in Scotland consume much

:11:16.:11:20.

more than this. According to the report, 39% of Scots will have at

:11:21.:11:25.

least one sort of confectionery everyday, including sweets, cakes

:11:26.:11:29.

and biscuits, compared to 30% in England and 18% of us will have one

:11:30.:11:35.

or more. And these statistics have led cancer specialists to give this

:11:36.:11:41.

warning. Only one in four Scots recognise that obesity is the

:11:42.:11:44.

leading preventable cause of cancer. It is the single leading preventable

:11:45.:11:49.

cause after smoking. Levels of awareness are low, and we know the

:11:50.:11:53.

biggest contributor to being obese is our diet. Physical activity is

:11:54.:11:57.

important but diet is key, and we have seen no change in overweight or

:11:58.:12:02.

obesity rates in Scotland in a decade. Two thirds of adults and

:12:03.:12:07.

over court of children in Scotland are overweight or obese. One idea

:12:08.:12:12.

from Cancer Research UK is to call on the Scottish Government act to

:12:13.:12:16.

get restrictions put on promotions like multi-buys of foods that are

:12:17.:12:22.

high in sugar, fat and salt. Ministers say they are committed to

:12:23.:12:26.

tackling Scotland's obesity problems. We will be engaging with

:12:27.:12:30.

the food industry, but we are already seeing some changes. Bars

:12:31.:12:37.

have announced they are re-formulating their recipe. Tesco

:12:38.:12:41.

and other retailers are changing practices as well. But why is the

:12:42.:12:45.

healthy eating message not getting through? We eat what we want, as far

:12:46.:12:51.

as I'm concerned. I have got my bacon with all of the fact and

:12:52.:12:55.

stuff, but I enjoy it. Advertisements in shops, I do not

:12:56.:13:00.

think they put enough out there to tell people that it is not good for

:13:01.:13:04.

you. People have formed their own food traditions, and it is very

:13:05.:13:09.

difficult to break those habits. I think a wee bit of chocolate is

:13:10.:13:15.

allowed. So it seems changing tastes and attitudes will take far longer

:13:16.:13:19.

than it does to choose in the sweet shop.

:13:20.:13:20.

It's emerged that a primary school head teacher was taken to hospital

:13:21.:13:23.

Janette Black, head of Springhill and Auchenback Primary School

:13:24.:13:27.

in Barrhead, was seen at a minor injuries unit.

:13:28.:13:29.

East Renfrewshire Council confirmed that the incident had

:13:30.:13:31.

taken place and that an investigation was ongoing.

:13:32.:13:34.

East Renfrewshire Council has confirmed that an incident happened

:13:35.:13:49.

here at the school in Barrhead on Wednesday, and that the headteacher

:13:50.:13:53.

attended a local hospital minor injuries clinic. The local authority

:13:54.:13:57.

said that was a precaution and she had not suffered any serious

:13:58.:14:01.

injuries. The council said, incidents like this are extremely

:14:02.:14:05.

rare, and that it has a zero tolerance approach to violence at

:14:06.:14:10.

work. A spokesman added that an investigation is currently underway

:14:11.:14:13.

to establish exactly what happened. Once that has been concluded,

:14:14.:14:19.

appropriate action would be taken. Police Scotland said the incident

:14:20.:14:20.

had not been reported to them. The Prime Minister attacks

:14:21.:14:23.

the SNP for being obsessed with independence at any cost

:14:24.:14:28.

and tells Scottish Conservatives that the UK must remain united

:14:29.:14:30.

as it leaves the EU. Runner Laura Muir

:14:31.:14:36.

is in imperious form at the European Indoor

:14:37.:14:40.

Athletics Championships. Plans to create hundreds

:14:41.:14:48.

of new jobs at the Fort William aluminium smelter have taken

:14:49.:14:52.

another step forward. The new owners of the aluminium

:14:53.:14:54.

smelter in Fort William want to invest hundreds of millions

:14:55.:14:56.

of pounds in the plant and build a new factory

:14:57.:14:59.

using metal produced there. If anyone was sceptical about the

:15:00.:15:14.

commitment of the new owners to this plant when they took over a few

:15:15.:15:19.

months ago, here is the evidence, a ?10 million row of biofuel

:15:20.:15:23.

generators to supply electricity to the smelter. The whole plant should

:15:24.:15:28.

therefore run largely on renewable energy, producing the greenest metal

:15:29.:15:35.

anywhere in the UK. It is waste oil. Whether it is fish waste oil, animal

:15:36.:15:40.

fat, whatever, it is using that so it is not burning any actual

:15:41.:15:45.

resource. The next phase of development will be the construction

:15:46.:15:49.

of a new factory to manufacture car parts, like alloy wheels. That will

:15:50.:15:55.

provide 300 direct jobs, but the ambitions of the new operators go

:15:56.:16:00.

further, with recycling aluminium and steel. They say they could be

:16:01.:16:04.

employing something like 1000 people on site within the next decade. For

:16:05.:16:09.

the local economy, that could pose problems, so the public sector has

:16:10.:16:15.

got involved, too. So, a range of public bodies sat around the table

:16:16.:16:19.

today to map out how they can support this major expansion. If we

:16:20.:16:24.

see a great number of new jobs created, a new factory built, and

:16:25.:16:32.

much development on the wider estate, we need the public sector to

:16:33.:16:36.

respond. We need to make sure there will be sufficient homes, a supply

:16:37.:16:41.

of skills, working with the West Highland College and the company.

:16:42.:16:45.

And we need in the public sector to work together and work quickly

:16:46.:16:52.

together. The ?450 million investment represents a once in a

:16:53.:16:55.

lifetime opportunity, according to Mr Ewing.

:16:56.:17:00.

One of Scotland's international rugby players has been speaking

:17:01.:17:03.

to the BBC about his fightback from years of depression

:17:04.:17:05.

Fraser Brown, of the Glasgow Warriors, is now a key member

:17:06.:17:10.

of the team trying to win this year's Six Nations.

:17:11.:17:13.

But as David Currie reports, he's had to win physical and mental

:17:14.:17:16.

battles to establish himself for club and country.

:17:17.:17:24.

A key member of the Scotland squad, Fraser Brown could earn his 24th cap

:17:25.:17:33.

against England. A few years ago it seemed like his youthful promise

:17:34.:17:36.

could be unfulfilled. Injuries stopped him making a breakthrough at

:17:37.:17:43.

his first pro club, Edinburgh Rugby. There have been campaigns in the

:17:44.:17:49.

press about mental health and depression. It is a very real thing,

:17:50.:17:52.

especially when you're young player who has been injured a lot. I went

:17:53.:18:04.

back home, went to one of the clubs in Edinburgh and enjoyed being

:18:05.:18:06.

around guys just having fun and playing rugby again. Then I did

:18:07.:18:15.

sevens and was picked up by Glasgow. At Glasgow Warriors, Brown made the

:18:16.:18:19.

grade, helping them to win the Pro12 league title in 2015 and he became a

:18:20.:18:24.

Scotland international. The inner battle continues. You never really

:18:25.:18:30.

get over it, it is something you come through gradually, it has taken

:18:31.:18:36.

me five, six years. It's something where if I have bad times now I

:18:37.:18:44.

might have low points, I need the result in myself that I can speak

:18:45.:18:51.

about it, let it out and speak to people who can help me through it

:18:52.:18:55.

and there is something at the end. Although Brown thinks the injuries

:18:56.:18:58.

of his early career may have triggered mental health issues, he

:18:59.:19:03.

feels the sport he loves also helps him to cope. It kick-started it but

:19:04.:19:09.

it pulled me out of it as well. The reason it kick-started it is because

:19:10.:19:13.

I couldn't do something I really enjoyed doing and on the back of

:19:14.:19:18.

that, when I came back I didn't have to worry about the pressures of

:19:19.:19:23.

professional rugby, I could enjoy what I'm doing, the rest of my life

:19:24.:19:27.

around rugby. It's definitely helped.

:19:28.:19:30.

Scottish athlete Laura Muir's ambitions of winning two medals

:19:31.:19:35.

at the Indoor European Athletics Championships are on course.

:19:36.:19:37.

The 23-year-old has reached the finals of the 1500 and 3000

:19:38.:19:41.

metres, after qualifying in both events today.

:19:42.:19:43.

But as Jane Lewis reports, there was disappointment for some

:19:44.:19:46.

Much is expected from this Scott in Belgrade. What a 12 months it has

:19:47.:20:00.

been for Laura Muir. There was no sign of her record-breaking form

:20:01.:20:05.

during her 3000 metre heat. Laura Muir has decided that fifth is OK.

:20:06.:20:09.

Doing just enough to qualify for the final. Little wonder she was taking

:20:10.:20:14.

things easy, four hours later she was back on the track and this time

:20:15.:20:19.

in the 1500 metres. Going to be tight on the line but Laura makes

:20:20.:20:24.

sure. Not quite easy does it this time but her fans can look forward

:20:25.:20:27.

to cheering her on as she faces another final. Physically I'm in

:20:28.:20:33.

good shape so it should be OK, it is more mentally, it will be tough to

:20:34.:20:40.

try and relax, gearing yourself up for each round again. A bit of both

:20:41.:20:45.

but I'm as prepared as I can be. Fellow Scots aid is McColgan and

:20:46.:20:48.

Steph Twell are going to take it on, joining your in the 3000 metres

:20:49.:20:54.

final. The perils of indoor athletics were also on show in

:20:55.:20:59.

Belgrade. Down she goes. A sore one in the 400 metres. A Lee Doyle

:21:00.:21:05.

avoided such pitfalls but there was agony of a different kind. After

:21:06.:21:08.

cruising to the semifinals of the agony of a different kind. After

:21:09.:21:11.

400 metres she was looking at the final. Doyle is looking for it.

:21:12.:21:19.

Doyle didn't make it. I knew I had to go hard because I wanted to win

:21:20.:21:25.

the break and make it difficult, I wanted to win it to get a good lane

:21:26.:21:30.

for the final, so to not even make the final is pretty heartbreaking.

:21:31.:21:38.

Heartbreak for Guy Luzon and -- Kylie and. His 800 metres didn't go

:21:39.:21:44.

as he'd hoped. The plan was just to run hard. I just lost concentration

:21:45.:21:52.

over the last five metres, I think. Absolutely devastated. Painful for

:21:53.:21:57.

Indoor athletics can be a dangerous game.

The "shows" have been a part of Scottish cultural life

:22:08.:22:11.

Yet little is known about the showpeople,

:22:12.:22:13.

who've been bringing those rides and attractions to towns around

:22:14.:22:16.

Now an exhibition aims to put it right.

:22:17.:22:24.

Our arts correspondent Pauline McLean reports.

:22:25.:22:27.

The shows have been part of Scottish cultural life for more than a

:22:28.:22:33.

century, bringing innovation as well is old-fashioned entertainment. This

:22:34.:22:39.

is a typical showman's vehicle. Melvin Thomas is from a long line of

:22:40.:22:43.

show men and has been collecting fairground artefacts for 30 years.

:22:44.:22:48.

Developed a lot of things themselves, their own engineers and

:22:49.:22:50.

when they could eat something that could be bettered, if they couldn't

:22:51.:22:56.

do it they knew someone who could. A lot of the fairground was adapted by

:22:57.:23:03.

ourselves. If we could see an idea that was going to be better, they

:23:04.:23:09.

would have a go at it. The shows brought elegance of the Anderson

smaller caravans but it is definitely the hub in Scotland for

:23:57.:24:02.

most Scottish show families. Now a new exhibition at the Glasgow

:24:03.:24:06.

Riverside Museum offers a rare insight into the shows and the

:24:07.:24:10.

people who run them. As well as the chance to sample the sights and

:24:11.:24:16.

sounds and smells. We've got two machines that emanate a vapour into

:24:17.:24:21.

the air, one of them smells like caramel and candy floss and the

:24:22.:24:25.

other one smells like steam and machinery because their grounds have

:24:26.:24:30.

a strange mixture of machinery and sweet smells and corn and things

:24:31.:24:36.

like that, so we've tried to recreate that.
