So it's goodbye from me. And on BBC One, we now join

:00:00.:00:08.

Tonight, on Reporting Scotland? Facing cancer fears -

:00:09.:00:10.

this offshore worker and his colleagues have been

:00:11.:00:14.

exposed to radiation on a North Sea platform.

:00:15.:00:16.

We are just hoping that somebody will step forward and take hold of

:00:17.:00:25.

the situation and start doing the right thing, rather than just try

:00:26.:00:27.

and sweep it under the table. A former youth football

:00:28.:00:31.

scout is arrested as part of the investigation

:00:32.:00:34.

into historical sex abuse. IVF treatment - patients

:00:35.:00:36.

could now qualify for three cycles of treatment,

:00:37.:00:38.

instead of two, under new NHS rules. How to deal with a housing

:00:39.:00:41.

shortage in one of the most And doing something funny for money

:00:42.:00:44.

- we look at one of the projects An offshore worker has called

:00:45.:00:49.

for action after he and colleagues were exposed to radiation

:00:50.:01:14.

on a North sea platform. Rigging supervisor Steve Innes says

:01:15.:01:16.

he has struggled to find work since raising concerns -

:01:17.:01:20.

and now faces cancer The operator of the Thistle

:01:21.:01:22.

platform, Enquest, says its put in place additional precautionary

:01:23.:01:27.

steps since the incident Rebecca Curran has

:01:28.:01:29.

this exclusive report. Steve Innes has worked offshore for

:01:30.:01:43.

nearly 30 years. He has spent the last four months at home. He and

:01:44.:01:48.

five Wood Group colleagues were working on the Thistle platform when

:01:49.:01:50.

they were exposed to alpha radiation. We can only go and look

:01:51.:02:00.

at our permit, and look at the necessary PPE. You can only do your

:02:01.:02:07.

job well if they use prepare you for it. And they didn't prepare as well

:02:08.:02:11.

for it. In fact they got it totally wrong. Thistle is operated by

:02:12.:02:20.

EnQuest. Steve has not had work since December. He fears he is being

:02:21.:02:25.

shunned for speaking out. The Unite union say they have no direct

:02:26.:02:28.

evidence of blacklisting, but the threat of it prevents workers from

:02:29.:02:33.

reporting such incidents. It does happen, we know it does happen. An

:02:34.:02:38.

incident like this, if it is ongoing, it is unlikely they would

:02:39.:02:41.

want people back while the investigation is ongoing. How are

:02:42.:02:42.

the men now? Worried, worried for investigation is ongoing. How are

:02:43.:02:48.

their future, for their health. They have not had any support which would

:02:49.:02:56.

help them through that. They've got a very uncertain future going ahead.

:02:57.:03:00.

One thing is certain - Steve and his former colleagues now face tests

:03:01.:03:06.

every six months for the rest of their lives. Exposure to alpha

:03:07.:03:08.

radiation could have no impact at all on their health, but possible

:03:09.:03:12.

effects can be severe, including cancer. Some of us can't go to work,

:03:13.:03:18.

he is on medication, he is not sleeping, he's worried about it. He

:03:19.:03:23.

has been sent for whatever tests, waiting for the results to come

:03:24.:03:26.

back, like we all are. And we're just hoping that somebody will step

:03:27.:03:32.

forward and take a hold of the situation and start doing the right

:03:33.:03:36.

thing, you know? Rather than just try and sweep it under the table.

:03:37.:03:42.

EnQuest say additional precautionary steps have since been taken.

:03:43.:03:44.

And Rebecca Curran joins me now from Aberdeen.

:03:45.:03:49.

What other companies involved saying about this? Well, Wood Group, which

:03:50.:03:57.

employed the contractors, say their health and safety of their workers

:03:58.:04:00.

is always their top priority. After the incident, they took the men off

:04:01.:04:04.

the platform as a precaution and sent them for medical tests. An

:04:05.:04:08.

investigation was then launched with the operator of the platform,

:04:09.:04:12.

EnQuest. EnQuest say that the level of radiation the men were exposed to

:04:13.:04:18.

was less than 1% of the level which would have meant they needed to

:04:19.:04:20.

report the incident to the Health and Safety Executive. However, the

:04:21.:04:24.

Health and Safety Executive were told at the time. They say

:04:25.:04:29.

appropriate protections hasn't already in place, but since the

:04:30.:04:32.

incident, further precautionary steps have been taken. The Health

:04:33.:04:35.

and Safety Executive say that none of the workers involved raised

:04:36.:04:40.

concerns with them so they did not carry out any investigation. It

:04:41.:04:43.

should be pointed out that although we are being told that the level of

:04:44.:04:47.

radiation these men were exposed to was very low, they are now facing a

:04:48.:04:50.

lifetime of blood tests and uncertainty. And they say they

:04:51.:04:55.

should never have been put in this position in the first place.

:04:56.:04:58.

A former youth football scout has been arrested by police

:04:59.:05:00.

investigating allegations of historical sex abuse.

:05:01.:05:02.

Harry Dunn worked for Rangers, and also Chelsea and Liverpool.

:05:03.:05:04.

Our home affairs correspondent Reevel Alderson reports.

:05:05.:05:15.

This arrest follows the announcement last year that Police Scotland was

:05:16.:05:22.

amongst almost 20 forces across the UK which had launched investigations

:05:23.:05:24.

into allegations of child abuse within football. Harry Dunn worked

:05:25.:05:30.

with the Rangers youth side in the 1980s. In a statement, police said

:05:31.:05:37.

an 84-year-old man had been arrested and charged with a number of

:05:38.:05:42.

non-recent sexual offences. Earlier this year, Jim McCafferty, a four it

:05:43.:05:49.

man and coach at Hibs, Celtic and Falkirk, now 70, was remanded in

:05:50.:05:55.

custody in Northern Ireland charged with sexual activity with a boy

:05:56.:05:58.

under 16. He will be tried later this year. The Scottish Football

:05:59.:06:03.

Association has launched an investigation following reports from

:06:04.:06:05.

high-profile players of abuse within the game. They include allegations

:06:06.:06:12.

against SFA match official Hugh Stevenson and John Hart, Partick

:06:13.:06:18.

Thistle's trainer. They are both now dead. Police Scotland is

:06:19.:06:21.

investigating more than 130 referrals after a hotline was set up

:06:22.:06:23.

last year. Patients referred to the NHS

:06:24.:06:26.

for fertility treatment could be eligible for three full cycles

:06:27.:06:28.

of IVF treatment from next month. The Scottish Government

:06:29.:06:31.

is to increase the number of cycles for women under 40,

:06:32.:06:34.

following recommendations It's exhausting being in the public

:06:35.:06:51.

eye. A photocall for these little ones with a government minister.

:06:52.:06:53.

This one is almost three months old. His mum and dad had fertility

:06:54.:07:00.

treatments to have him. It took us between two years and two-and-a-half

:07:01.:07:03.

years to get where we are now. We are grateful that we have him. We

:07:04.:07:11.

were offered two cycles. Third time lucky. And this they be will be six

:07:12.:07:19.

months old on Mother's Day. It's hard going, very hard going, very

:07:20.:07:26.

emotionally draining. And it feels like a bit of a never rating process

:07:27.:07:33.

at times. But worth it? Absolutely worth it, worth every minute of it.

:07:34.:07:39.

We are inside a fertility lab here at the Edinburgh royal infirmary.

:07:40.:07:42.

One in seven couples have difficulty when it comes to conceiving a child,

:07:43.:07:47.

and 2% of babies are born as a result of some sort of fertility

:07:48.:07:51.

treatment. That now means over 2 million babies that have been born

:07:52.:07:57.

worldwide. From the 1st of April, up until their 40th birthday, eligible

:07:58.:08:01.

women in Scotland will be entitled to three full cycles of IVF on the

:08:02.:08:07.

NHS. Those between 40 and 42 will be offered one round if they fit

:08:08.:08:11.

certain additional criteria. In England, the provision depends on

:08:12.:08:19.

where you live. In Wales they are entitled to two cycles, and in

:08:20.:08:21.

Northern Ireland, one on the National Health Service. The move is

:08:22.:08:26.

expected to cost the NHS in Scotland around ?1 million a year. That is

:08:27.:08:32.

what the Nice clinical guidance says, that couples should have three

:08:33.:08:35.

cycles. We have always wanted to make sure that there is fair access

:08:36.:08:39.

for couples who are having trouble conceiving. We believe this is the

:08:40.:08:43.

right thing to do, it is on the back of investment that we have made over

:08:44.:08:47.

the last five years, and we want to continue to enhance the provision

:08:48.:08:50.

across the country. Both families we met today think this news will give

:08:51.:08:58.

hope to many couples. It is disheartening when they keep saying

:08:59.:09:01.

to you, you are not pregnant, keep trying again. You are physically

:09:02.:09:05.

tired. But when you get the news that you are pregnant, it is the

:09:06.:09:06.

best thing ever. NHS Grampian has apologised

:09:07.:09:12.

after an air ambulance was sent to Shetland instead of Orkney

:09:13.:09:14.

to pick up a sick baby. The Scottish Ambulance Service plane

:09:15.:09:17.

was despatched last Friday night. Only on landing in Shetland did

:09:18.:09:19.

the crew discover that the infant The baby eventually arrived safely

:09:20.:09:22.

at Aberdeen Maternity Hospital nearly ten hours after

:09:23.:09:25.

the initial call. NHS Grampian says it was

:09:26.:09:28.

an isolated mistake. Civilian staff at the Faslane and

:09:29.:09:37.

Coulport naval bases on the Clyde, home to the UK's fleet

:09:38.:09:40.

of nuclear Trident submarines, have begun a series

:09:41.:09:42.

of strikes, in a dispute with Babcock Marine

:09:43.:09:45.

over workers' rights. The Unite union said a continuous

:09:46.:09:47.

overtime and on-call ban, and staggered periods of strike

:09:48.:09:50.

action, would affect Babcock Marine said

:09:51.:09:52.

it was "disappointed and perplexed by Unite's actions" and remained

:09:53.:09:57.

committed to finding Students from other EU countries,

:09:58.:09:59.

who start university courses here next year

:10:00.:10:09.

will still get free tuition - even though they won't finish

:10:10.:10:11.

their studies until after Britain The Education Secretary,

:10:12.:10:14.

John Swinney, announced Our education correspondent Jamie

:10:15.:10:17.

McIvor is at Glasgow University. Jamie - why has the Scottish

:10:18.:10:23.

Government taken this decision? Well, just to remind you, the

:10:24.:10:35.

Scottish Government sees free choice and the Scots as one of its biggest

:10:36.:10:39.

achievements. European law means that EU students have to get free

:10:40.:10:42.

choice in, too. Just to set the scene, we are not talking about

:10:43.:10:48.

students who are here for a few months, we are talking about

:10:49.:10:52.

students from other EU countries who have chosen to come to Scotland for

:10:53.:10:56.

the whole of their degree. There are some 15,000 of them in Scotland at

:10:57.:10:59.

the moment. John Swinney has now offered for some certainty for those

:11:00.:11:04.

hoping to start in 2018, saying they will be able to conclude their

:11:05.:11:07.

studies here without paying tuition fees. Obviously, the impact of

:11:08.:11:13.

wrecks is significant, and students are affected by this. The Scottish

:11:14.:11:16.

Government wants to make it Chris talk later EU students that if they

:11:17.:11:21.

come to Scotland in 2018, their fees will be paid by the Scottish

:11:22.:11:24.

Government for the entire duration of their course. We hope that that

:11:25.:11:30.

will help give certainty and clarity where there is a lack of certainty

:11:31.:11:32.

and clarity under the Brexit process. Certainty and clarity, but

:11:33.:11:38.

does it make sense? Well, certainly as far as the decision for students

:11:39.:11:44.

starting in 2018 is concerned, that will be broadly welcomed by many

:11:45.:11:48.

within universities. But there is concern that uncertainty could deter

:11:49.:11:53.

applicants. Longer term, I think there could be questions over

:11:54.:11:56.

whether free tuition for EU students is still a good idea or not, if,

:11:57.:12:01.

come 2019, Scotland is outside the European Union, and was still

:12:02.:12:07.

voluntarily providing free tuition for EU students, would it prove to

:12:08.:12:11.

be politically acceptable or not? I think that is a debate which we

:12:12.:12:13.

could see over the coming months and years.

:12:14.:12:17.

It's six months to the day since the RAF gunner

:12:18.:12:20.

Corrie Mckeague, vanished after a night out in the Suffolk

:12:21.:12:22.

Today, police gave an update on their search of a landfill site

:12:23.:12:26.

Detectives also confirmed that they have been joined on site

:12:27.:12:30.

by a team from the Health and Safety Executive.

:12:31.:12:32.

The police are now three weeks into this search, which they say could

:12:33.:12:45.

take up to ten weeks. The officers involved are specially trained and

:12:46.:12:49.

have already been through more than a 845 tonnes of material, as they

:12:50.:12:56.

hunt for signs of comment. It is a massive operation. Working alongside

:12:57.:13:01.

the team are officials from the Health and Safety Executive. Both

:13:02.:13:05.

the police and Corrie's mother say they believe he will be found here.

:13:06.:13:10.

If and when that discovery comes, the health and safety team on site

:13:11.:13:13.

will need to start their own detailed work, going back

:13:14.:13:17.

step-by-step through every stage of the system, when that waste was

:13:18.:13:21.

picked up in Bury St Edmunds and placed in landfill 35 miles away. To

:13:22.:13:28.

answer the obvious question, why wasn't Corrie detected, and to make

:13:29.:13:31.

sure that something similar cannot happen in the future. This posture

:13:32.:13:35.

was always one possible line of inquiry, but at the start of this

:13:36.:13:39.

month, it became the main focus, with fresh data confirming that the

:13:40.:13:43.

wait of the waste collected was heavy enough to have contained

:13:44.:13:48.

Corrie. Suffolk police today spoke about the thousands of hours of

:13:49.:13:51.

investigative work which have already been completed. Yet six

:13:52.:13:55.

months since this young airman vanished, the agonising wait for

:13:56.:13:56.

answers continues. You're watching BBC

:13:57.:14:02.

Reporting Scotland. This offshore worker

:14:03.:14:03.

and his colleagues have been exposed to radiation

on a North Sea platform. How shipping containers

:14:12.:14:13.

are being used to solve a housing shortage in one of the most crowded

:14:14.:14:19.

parts of Glasgow. There are around 3500 people with

:14:20.:14:35.

Down's syndrome in Scotland. According to a report, there is a

:14:36.:14:40.

significant gap in their NHS care provision. The report also

:14:41.:14:44.

highlights negative attitudes from health professionals and poor

:14:45.:14:45.

communication with their families. Can you see past Jamie's Down's

:14:46.:14:54.

syndrome? Can you see past Kasey -- that is what Down's

:14:55.:15:15.

syndrome Scotland want you to do. Mother Taylor has first-hand

:15:16.:15:18.

experience. The doctor sat us down and said don't expect your daughter

:15:19.:15:24.

to walk or talk or anything and just left us. I was 16 when I had her.

:15:25.:15:32.

Don't expect her to walk or talk or do anything. They just threw a load

:15:33.:15:44.

of old leaflets at us. This is the ABC class. Achieving better

:15:45.:15:48.

communication. That is done through singing ink. This kind of

:15:49.:15:52.

specialist service is vital for their development. -- signing. There

:15:53.:16:01.

is a lack of understanding or a lack of availability of information. We

:16:02.:16:06.

knew nothing about Downs syndrome. We don't know where to turn. There

:16:07.:16:13.

is a lot of negative stuff out there. Again, it depends where you

:16:14.:16:18.

live. Even down to the individual health professionals. The report

:16:19.:16:22.

recognises that many families have had good experience with the health

:16:23.:16:26.

service and that attitudes have changed considerably over the years

:16:27.:16:29.

that there is still a long way to go. There are a lot of myths that

:16:30.:16:34.

still float around society. People with Down's syndrome cannot read or

:16:35.:16:38.

write or go to mainstream schools. People with down syndrome die when

:16:39.:16:44.

they are young. Lots of those things are not true. The average life

:16:45.:16:51.

expectancy today is around 60. Lots of those things are inaccurate. That

:16:52.:16:55.

makes people afraid of the condition. The Scottish Government

:16:56.:17:02.

says it will take the recommendations from the Down's

:17:03.:17:07.

syndrome Scotland report forward and hopes other boards across Scotland

:17:08.:17:08.

will as well. The way police and prosecutors

:17:09.:17:11.

in Scotland deal with New guidelines have been agreed

:17:12.:17:13.

in the light of government plans to widen the definition

:17:14.:17:17.

of what constitutes domestic abuse. A protocol launched today

:17:18.:17:20.

by the Crown Office and Police Scotland will do more

:17:21.:17:22.

to protect victims of domestic abuse,

:17:23.:17:24.

particularly children. We are now much more aware of the

:17:25.:17:40.

rights and interests of children full stop it is important that in

:17:41.:17:46.

this protocol we explicitly make clear to police that they should

:17:47.:17:51.

attend to the safety and well-being of children at a domestic abuse

:17:52.:17:55.

incident. And also take account of children, if children have been

:17:56.:17:59.

present or witnessed abuse. A new housing development

:18:00.:18:03.

is rapidly taking shape When it's finished, it'll provide

:18:04.:18:04.

a comfortable home to more But what's unusual is that it's

to load them onto the site, much like you or I would have loaded

for that type of technology. With Scotland facing a huge shortage

of affordable homes, some think this could help

solve the problem. It's like children's building

boys, who come along to the Shine group. It is a chance not to sweat

the small stuff. It is a chance to bond. It is a chance to find a place

:22:20.:22:24.

where you can be yourself. There is not an expectation. Special guest

today is Jamie, who plays either in Still Game. I have got a nice

overcoat you could use if the weather is bad. The sessions with

reason why you want to get into acting is because you want to be

someone else. I love putting a wig and glasses on and I can immerse

myself in a different person. These 12-year-olds are nearing the end of

the ten weekly sessions they are coming to. Comic Relief has given

?100,000 over three years to fund the workshops. A variety of a group

of youngsters are taking part. They would all benefit from the intense

:23:32.:23:36.

support to make them shine. It is a very small group. That means it's

:23:37.:23:41.

easy to socialise. I get really anxious and stuff. It helps my

:23:42.:23:49.

confidence. It has helped me to improve to do a lot of things.

:23:50.:23:54.

Basically, you think you are in a box and there is no escape. When you

:23:55.:24:00.

come to speak, you get rid of the box. It is not there. You can share

:24:01.:24:05.

anything with them. It makes me happy coming here and seeing my

:24:06.:24:11.

friends. The boys here are certainly very grateful for the money this

:24:12.:24:14.

project gets from Comic Relief. We are turning to notch up for the

:24:15.:24:30.

weekend. Some lovely spells of sunshine with high cloud spelling in

:24:31.:24:36.

and turning the blue skies a wee bit milky at times. Over the next few

:24:37.:24:41.

hours the cloud will be in an break, leaving it clear and cold for most.

:24:42.:24:46.

Across the far north, the Northern Isles, some bigger cloud will stay

:24:47.:24:51.

with us. A few spots of rain for Shetland. The breeze in the West and

:24:52.:24:57.

south-west. Temperatures flirting roundabout freezing. That means it

:24:58.:25:00.

is a chilly start to the day tomorrow but a bright and sunny one

of the back is all thanks to high pressure which is staying with us

:25:05.:25:08.

through the course of the weekend. Around the northern flank of that

:25:09.:25:11.

high, there will be thicker cloud and a few spots of light rain

:25:12.:25:16.

particularly for the Northern Isles. South of Inverness it will be bright

:25:17.:25:22.

and dry and sunny. The winds will be light and temperatures on the up. By

:25:23.:25:29.

mid-afternoon we are into the teens, 14, 15 Celsius for many. For many,

:25:30.:25:37.

it will feel quite pleasant indeed. Across the north-east, 16, 17

:25:38.:25:40.

degrees as possible. Further east, you can see the cloud. Under the

:25:41.:25:50.

cloud it will be cooler, 10-12 C. If you are hill walking or climbing,

:25:51.:25:53.

fantastic conditions on the hills and mountains. Certainly across the

:25:54.:25:59.

northern ranges it will be windy but the winds will tend to ease down by

:26:00.:26:05.

the afternoon. On the eastern ranges similar conditions. Modric tomorrow.

:26:06.:26:11.

There is a chance of light sunburn. Fantastic visibility of your heading

:26:12.:26:14.

for the hills. The rest of the afternoon, into the evening and

:26:15.:26:18.

overnight, dry with lovely sunshine to end the day. Clear and cold

:26:19.:26:23.

overnight. Also, overnight, the clocks will spring forward one hour

:26:24.:26:26.

as we head through to Sunday morning. An hour less in bed Sunday

:26:27.:26:31.

morning but plenty of such I to help you get up and out and about. Sunday

:26:32.:26:35.

is another cracker of a day. Plenty of Son for most of us. Perhaps more

:26:36.:26:39.

cloud in the east by the afternoon. A bit cooler here. In the north-west

:26:40.:26:45.

16, 17 once again cloudy for the Northern Isles for the next week and

:26:46.:26:49.

we have no pressure out in the Atlantic which will edge its way

into try to spoil the party roundabout midweek. Till then,

:26:53.:26:57.

largely dry. This weekend it is looking good. That is the forecast.

:26:58.:27:01.

Now, a reminder of tonight's main news...

:27:02.:27:04.

Police say they've made two more significant arrests

:27:05.:27:06.

as they try to establish whether the man who launched

:27:07.:27:09.

the attack on Westminster was working alone or with others.

:27:10.:27:11.

And a call for action after this man and his colleagues

:27:12.:27:16.

were exposed to radiation on a north sea platform.

:27:17.:27:23.

The operator says it has put in place additional

:27:24.:27:26.

precautionary steps since the incident in December.

:27:27.:27:28.

I'll be back with the late bulletin just

:27:29.:27:41.

Until then, from everyone on the team - right

:27:42.:27:44.
