And on BBC One, we now join the BBC's news teams where you are.

The largest North Sea pipeline, delivering more than 40%

:00:00.:00:12.

of Britain's oil and gas, is bought by the Grangemouth

:00:13.:00:16.

Why we need to do more of this, a warning that 1.6 million

:00:17.:00:22.

Scots are inactive and at risk of an early death.

Her husband wants more people to be aware of the illness to help

:00:27.:00:32.

It still haunts me greatly because in the last week, I would say of

Liz's life, she was delirious, she was nauseous, she was constantly

vomiting. Also on the programme,

he's not going anywhere. Celebrations as Celtic win

their sixth league title in a row. At this moment in time I am very,

very happy, very content, in every aspect of my life. I am in my dream

job, that is the reality of it. A ?200 million deal's been struck

:01:17.:01:28.

to sell the North Sea's oldest oil pipeline,

:01:29.:01:41.

Forties, which pumps 450,000 barrels of oil every

:01:42.:01:44.

day from the North Sea. BP has been running the Forties

shipped by tanker the 40s pipeline made did fireball, since then it has

:02:08.:02:12.

carried the lion's share of 43 billion barrels of oil from the

:02:13.:02:18.

North Sea. The system covers oil and gas from 40 offshore installations

:02:19.:02:21.

from 40 operators to a single landing point and then it goes

:02:22.:02:26.

through three pumping stations to Grangemouth and a terminal by the

:02:27.:02:30.

Forth Bridge. BP and all associated with them have been in the forefront

:02:31.:02:35.

of achievement on our continental shelf... When BP started operating

:02:36.:02:40.

at the company was half owned by the government. It is now selling it to

:02:41.:02:43.

at the company was half owned by the INEOS which already owns Grangemouth

:02:44.:02:49.

refinery and petrochemical plant. INEOS have skill in running assets

:02:50.:02:53.

efficiently, we think we can apply the same skills to the pipeline

:02:54.:02:57.

system, we are trying to extract maximum economic value out of what

:02:58.:03:01.

everyone understands is a declining stock of oil and gas in the North

:03:02.:03:07.

Sea. BP insists it is still committed to the North Sea and

:03:08.:03:11.

installations like this one West of Shetland but it is looking into new

:03:12.:03:15.

assets. Is about what skills are best for new acids, -- which assets,

:03:16.:03:21.

is we are exploring and drilling wells etc but for INEOS, they have

:03:22.:03:29.

experience and baby taking 40s pipeline system from the reservoir

:03:30.:03:34.

to loading arms and Tigers and they will be running these assets from

:03:35.:03:39.

now on. 300 staff to be consulted and no redundancies planned yet as

:03:40.:03:44.

Grangemouth workers found the hard way in 2013 INEOS can be very tough

:03:45.:03:49.

in driving efficiencies. You are effectively signing the keys of the

:03:50.:03:54.

kingdom to one individual, a company driven by one individual. They were

:03:55.:03:59.

speaking about such a key asset, not just to the Scottish economy but to

:04:00.:04:09.

the UK economy. The oil that flows to the refinery and petrochemical

:04:10.:04:11.

plant here is just half of what it to the refinery and petrochemical

:04:12.:04:15.

was at peak production for the North Sea but and is reckoned that it

:04:16.:04:19.

could still be operating 30 years from now. One small pipeline, a very

:04:20.:04:25.

big asset for the economy. Douglas Fraser, Reporting Scotland,

us from outside the state capital Jackie, I think she hopes to achieve

:04:32.:04:46.

a couple of things. First and foremost she wants to exchange ideas

:04:47.:04:50.

with the governor of California, a Democrat who has been a fierce

:04:51.:04:54.

opponent of President Trump especially on climate change. The

:04:55.:04:58.

two share an interest in reducing emissions whereas the White House

:04:59.:05:05.

and Trump has made it clear that it favours economic growth over climate

:05:06.:05:14.

change. The First Minister will also discuss trade and investment, she

:05:15.:05:16.

stresses she will meet executives from some Californian companies who

:05:17.:05:20.

are investing in Scotland. And also she will be making a speech tomorrow

:05:21.:05:25.

at Stanford University, one of the world's leading universities at

:05:26.:05:29.

which she will discuss Brexit and the Middle East and of course she

:05:30.:05:32.

will discuss Scottish independence. As for the reaction to that back

:05:33.:05:37.

home, as it can imagine, some protesters are coming past us now.

:05:38.:05:41.

This is what happens all the time in the United States these days, what

:05:42.:05:46.

people are saying back home especially opposition politicians is

:05:47.:05:49.

that the First Minister should concentrate on the day job. Those

:05:50.:05:52.

were built words of the Scottish Tories, they say she should get back

:05:53.:05:56.

to work and stop grandstanding abroad. Thank you, James Cook.

:05:57.:06:03.

Nearly 40% of Scots are physically inactive.

:06:04.:06:07.

A study by the British Heart Foundation warns that

:06:08.:06:09.

as a result 1.6 million of us have a significantly increased

:06:10.:06:11.

risk of coronary heart disease and early death.

something to do when I go back to work I am energised, refreshed,

:06:33.:06:37.

focused. Alaves you just end up putting on weight when you work in

:06:38.:06:40.

an office so I think it's important. It makes me feel good, means I can

:06:41.:06:45.

get away from my desk for half an hour, come to the gym, meet people,

:06:46.:06:52.

and it keeps me fit. It seems so simple but the British Heart

:06:53.:06:53.

Foundation say not enough of us are doing it.

:06:54.:07:09.

The charity estimates 1.6 million people in Scotland are physically

:07:10.:07:11.

inactive. They say the average man spends around 84 days you're sitting

:07:12.:07:14.

down. For women it is 81 days ago. And overall women are 24% more

:07:15.:07:16.

likely to be classified as physically inactive than men. What

:07:17.:07:18.

we should be doing according to medical guidelines is 150 minutes a

:07:19.:07:23.

week spread over a few days of something that gets the heart

:07:24.:07:27.

moving, a brisk walk, running or cycling. For some people as part of

:07:28.:07:31.

their daily routine, for many it is not. Inactivity is something that

:07:32.:07:36.

can really creep up on you. And apparently it is creeping up on

:07:37.:07:40.

around one quarter of us. Of course you will find people sweating

:07:41.:07:53.

in the gym but just a few hundred yards away how active are people on

:07:54.:07:58.

the streets outside? I didn't figure that I was unfit until a doctor

:07:59.:08:01.

actually said, you need to do more exercise than just walking. Not a

:08:02.:08:03.

lot of people to sport, I can't think of one of my friendship group

:08:04.:08:06.

that does it. Received lots of many people walking on the streets, maybe

:08:07.:08:08.

they are going in taxes than they should walk. The British Heart

:08:09.:08:12.

Foundation say it is no laughing matter and doing regular vigorous

:08:13.:08:15.

exercise like this will significantly reduce the risk of

Scotland, Scotland. Seven months ago Julie Walker

:08:22.:08:27.

and her six-year-old son, Lucas, Today it's emerged that safety

:08:28.:08:29.

measures there remain unchanged despite a group being set up to look

:08:30.:08:34.

at the provision of safety equipment Our reporter Steven

:08:35.:08:38.

Duff joins us now. That's right, Jackie, a lot of talk

:08:39.:08:50.

about risk assessments, what we should do but we still don't

:08:51.:08:53.

actually know what happened on that Saturday afternoon last August, how

:08:54.:08:58.

Julie and her six-year-old son Lucas got into such difficulty that they

:08:59.:09:03.

lost their lives. We still don't know if any extra life-saving

:09:04.:09:07.

equipment or lifeguard cover would have made any difference that

:09:08.:09:11.

afternoon. We still don't know if the life-saving equipment that was

:09:12.:09:14.

in place was working properly and we also don't know whether any

:09:15.:09:19.

provision of lifeguards would have made a difference. The problem we

:09:20.:09:27.

have is that the City Council, this agency, has admitted that nothing 's

:09:28.:09:32.

safety wise has been done since the incident seven months ago. Currently

:09:33.:09:37.

on the beach there is no change in the provision of equipment, because

:09:38.:09:41.

at the minute the risk assessment process is being carried out. The

:09:42.:09:45.

management group met for the first time eight weeks ago is the group

:09:46.:09:51.

has not been long together. That it is seven months since two people

:09:52.:09:55.

died here. You are saying it only met eight weeks ago? That's in

:09:56.:09:58.

response to the National strategy drowning. Julie's Sun and because's

:09:59.:10:07.

older brother Samuel survived, last August, other people in the water

survived, frenetic efforts were made to try to save this family. Thank

:10:11.:10:12.

you very much. A widower campaigning to raise

:10:13.:10:14.

public awareness of the condition sepsis following the death

:10:15.:10:17.

of his wife says he's "astonished" that some Scottish health boards

:10:18.:10:19.

are wary in case it cases "alarm". BBC Scotland can reveal one NHS

:10:20.:10:23.

board is warning it could increase "unnecessary" attendance

:10:24.:10:28.

at GP surgeries. Sepsis kills around 44,000 people

:10:29.:10:30.

every year in the UK. Sepsis is a hidden killer

:10:31.:10:46.

responsible for more deaths than lung cancer or breast, bowel and

:10:47.:10:50.

prostate cancer combined. Hard-hitting video about a

:10:51.:10:53.

potentially lethal conditions, and awareness of symptoms save lives but

:10:54.:10:59.

some health. Want us to have more information. Liz Robertson is a

:11:00.:11:04.

victim of sepsis, she died in hospital last year, her husband

:11:05.:11:07.

believes she could be still alive if she had been diagnosed sooner. It

:11:08.:11:11.

still haunts me greatly because in the last week I would say of loses

:11:12.:11:21.

life, she was nauseous, delirious, constantly vomiting, she did not

:11:22.:11:27.

know where she lived. This doctor is one of Scotland's leading experts in

:11:28.:11:31.

sepsis, treats patients every day for sepsis and nose increased

:11:32.:11:35.

awareness can mean the difference between life and death. I would

:11:36.:11:40.

support an awareness campaign. We've been working with health care

:11:41.:11:44.

professionals but we need you to help us. For every hour's delay in

:11:45.:11:50.

antibiotics the risk increases by 8% so if we can get people in the

:11:51.:11:53.

community to the hospital is quicker that will surely make a difference.

:11:54.:11:58.

Somehow boards like NHS Grampian would welcome a national campaign

:11:59.:12:03.

raising awareness of sepsis among the public, they say. All actively

:12:04.:12:08.

work to raise awareness of sepsis that some health boards are wary.

:12:09.:12:14.

NHS Dumfries and Galloway said a public campaign specifically about

:12:15.:12:17.

sepsis may cause alarm and increase and necessary attendance at GP

:12:18.:12:24.

practices or A E departments. NHS Forth Valley said it is necessary to

:12:25.:12:30.

consider the unintended consequences of inappropriately increasing public

:12:31.:12:35.

awareness. See the expression on her face? Jim focuses on the good

:12:36.:12:39.

memories and the hope that speaking about his loss may stop others dying

:12:40.:12:44.

from sepsis. Greater awareness to the public would be a very, very

:12:45.:12:50.

good legacy. Fiona Stalker, Reporting Scotland.

A legal battle between a grandmother and the Aberdeenshire golf resort

:12:54.:12:55.

owned by President Trump is under way at the small claims

It's an unlikely case, being brought by the woman

:12:59.:13:03.

realised she needed the toilet urgently. She said she went into the

a knock at the door and police charged with you relating in a

:14:04.:14:06.

public place in a manner which would have caused or was likely to have

:14:07.:14:10.

caused annoyance. She said that she was shocked to think that she was in

:14:11.:14:15.

the view of everyone. Police later said that three men, two of whom

:14:16.:14:19.

were employed by the development, had secretly filmed her. She said

:14:20.:14:23.

she knew she hadn't done anything wrong and the Procurator Fiscal took

:14:24.:14:28.

no action. But, upset, she took out a claim instead. Felt that people

:14:29.:14:33.

should not be filmed when they are out in the country doing something

:14:34.:14:37.

that... I was not doing anything wrong. It is something that many

walkers, many climbers, people who access the outdoors do. It is a fact

into a black hole in space? We have the answer to that and other

mind-boggling scientific questions. We all dream of a peaceful

retirement with Frank Meehan is 93 and enjoys his

:15:44.:15:45.

days in Helensburgh. But as a BBC Scotland documentary

:15:46.:15:48.

to be shown this evening reveals, the work he looks back put him

:15:49.:15:51.

at the centre of 20th Frank seems much like any other

:15:52.:16:07.

pensioner. But in fact, this modest man was a key player in some of the

:16:08.:16:10.

most erratic moments of the Cold War. His parents were from

:16:11.:16:16.

Clydebank, where Frank was born in 1924 in America and spent the first

:16:17.:16:21.

nine years of his life there, before moving back to Scotland. At the end

:16:22.:16:25.

of the war he was conscripted into the U.S. Army. On a whim, he applied

:16:26.:16:31.

to join the diplomatic service. I read in the army newspaper, stars

:16:32.:16:36.

and stripes, that you could get a free day pass to take the

:16:37.:16:39.

examination. The three-day pass was something that any GI would look at

:16:40.:16:49.

carefully. I went to do the written exam. I did not do terribly well in

:16:50.:16:55.

it. I managed to scrape through, enough to be eligible to take the

:16:56.:17:02.

oral examination. I did a bit better, I think. I'm an early

:17:03.:17:10.

highlight of Frank's was his part in the Gary Power spy swap drama. An

:17:11.:17:17.

American plane was shot down over Soviet territory. It leads to an

:17:18.:17:22.

admission that the US has been conducting reconnaissance flights

:17:23.:17:26.

over the Soviet Union biplanes like this one. Frank was sent through

:17:27.:17:28.

checkpoint Charlie into East Berlin. this one. Frank was sent through

:17:29.:17:36.

You were a young diplomat and you were at the epicentre of the global

:17:37.:17:40.

Cold War which could have exploded at any moment into a third World

:17:41.:17:46.

War. Did you feel the burden on your shoulders? I do not remember it that

:17:47.:17:50.

way. There were tense moments, obviously. I didn't know when I was

:17:51.:17:58.

working, I did not know how he would be. Would he be well and would I get

:17:59.:18:03.

him? Would I be able to get out myself? It was all such touchy

:18:04.:18:12.

stuff. Frank would rise to become US ambassador in Czechoslovakia, Poland

:18:13.:18:15.

and then East Germany. He served right through the Cold War and nine

:18:16.:18:20.

US presidents. Why did you decide to settle in retirement in Scotland and

:18:21.:18:25.

not go back to the United States? That is fairly easy. My wife wanted

:18:26.:18:31.

to come here. I felt I owed it to her a bit. I dragged her around

:18:32.:18:36.

Eastern Europe all her married life. When we came here it was our 23rd

:18:37.:18:46.

full move in our married life. When you have asked a wife to do that, I

:18:47.:18:49.

think you do owe her something. One of the key elements of the UK

:18:50.:18:54.

leaving the European Union is uncertainty over the rights

of people from the EU Facing concern over their future,

:18:58.:18:59.

some are applying for We've been following the story

:19:00.:19:02.

of one such woman who's been This woman arrived in the Highlands

from Poland on a six-month working holiday. 13 years on she's still

is a popular trader in the cityVictorian market. However you?

:19:19.:19:26.

Good, thank you. Living and working here for over a decade was not

:19:27.:19:31.

enough to give her the right to vote in last year's EU referendum. I

:19:32.:19:35.

disagree with that. I have decided to live in this country make this

:19:36.:19:40.

country might own. Only because I don't have a British passport I'm

:19:41.:19:44.

not able to make any decisions for the future of myself and my family.

:19:45.:19:49.

With the referendum outcome casting a shadow, the owner of the shop is

:19:50.:19:55.

taking matters into her own hands but she is in the process of

:19:56.:19:59.

applying to become a British citizen. She is furiously revising

:20:00.:20:09.

for two upcoming citizenship tests. Sometimes it is very entertaining

:20:10.:20:13.

and sometimes quite scary. You do have very common questions about

:20:14.:20:18.

what do British people eat for Christmas? When you have questions

:20:19.:20:25.

like, what is the population of Muslim people in Britain? And you

:20:26.:20:29.

are thinking, how many British people know that? To make that very

:20:30.:20:34.

point she has been putting British citizens to the test. So, the

:20:35.:20:40.

question is, what is the correct order of the patron Saints days? And

:20:41.:20:47.

you have three options. Whenever you feel free, press the button. Failed.

:20:48.:20:58.

Apparently. Who'd have thought it? You to wonder whether it will help

:20:59.:21:02.

in everyday life in Britain to know when Saint Patrick's Day is. OK.

:21:03.:21:08.

I've read it? A very impressive hillfort can still be seen today at

:21:09.:21:16.

Maidenhead Castle. What English county does it standing? Up Dawson.

:21:17.:21:23.

I was going to say Cornwall. Wrong. Not relevant to becoming a citizen,

:21:24.:21:28.

I don't think. She has travelled from Inverness to Glasgow, taking a

:21:29.:21:30.

I don't think. She has travelled major step on the road to becoming a

:21:31.:21:35.

British passport holder. She re-emerges to hours later after

:21:36.:21:39.

sitting compulsory tests in English and UK general knowledge. At the

adopting Scotland as her legitimate home. I will be really very glad to

be able to vote in an election and to make a difference in this

Brendan Rodgers has assured Celtic fans he is staying at the club.

:22:23.:22:30.

If you are happy and you know it, raised the flag. At the Celtic

:22:31.:22:37.

training ground today it was pretty much a league title loving. They

:22:38.:22:42.

have good reason to celebrate. This was empowering their way past heart

focus of today's back pages. -- success. The man who has been now is

:23:03.:23:10.

not interested for now. 18 months after the Liverpool job, I was

:23:11.:23:17.

sacked. Now I am very happy and content. I'm in my dream job. That

:23:18.:23:24.

is the reality of it. The other reality is his players are on course

:23:25.:23:28.

for a treble and a possible season unbeaten. I know you do not like to

:23:29.:23:36.

talk about it but there must be something you focus on in that

:23:37.:23:41.

dressing room. It is the history that people talk about for years and

:23:42.:23:47.

years. To get the squad to do that, I believe we have the potential. We

:23:48.:23:52.

just need to keep working hard, as I have said. Something this man

:23:53.:23:55.

demands. But they know when they do they get the rewards.

:23:56.:24:03.

What's it like going into a black hole?

:24:04.:24:08.

The Edinburgh science Festival is aiming to do this and more.

:24:09.:24:18.

Is it art or is it science question at scientists used lasers to

:24:19.:24:26.

simulate lack holes in the laboratory. This artist was working

:24:27.:24:32.

alongside them. The whole version are making light travel slower than

:24:33.:24:36.

the speed of light then making it vanished down a cosmic plughole. I

:24:37.:24:41.

spend most of my residency probably looking like I was doing nothing. I

:24:42.:24:46.

chose to sit in the laboratory corridor, which was not very

:24:47.:24:50.

comfortable. Every time someone was milling around, I would peer over

:24:51.:24:57.

and ask questions. There is a tendency to think about art and

:24:58.:25:03.

science as being separate. Here is a work of art that the base of the

:25:04.:25:08.

laws of physics. After this exhibition is over it would be used

:25:09.:25:11.

in a scientific experiment. Researchers will be using it to save

:25:12.:25:16.

energy can be extracted from vortices like these. Elsewhere in

the exhibition Art inspired by research into the waters of

:25:21.:25:24.

Scotland, including a coral reef in the Western Isles. The data and

:25:25.:25:27.

information the scientists gather has a great beauty to it. It is very

:25:28.:25:34.

tactile and sensory. It has been interesting for me talking them

:25:35.:25:39.

about how we can represent that and asking interesting questions like,

:25:40.:25:44.

if you were to walk along the sea bed at 600 metres depth of the

:25:45.:25:48.

coast, what would it feel like and what would you see? The artist did

:25:49.:25:54.

not just watch but worked with the scientists. The process involved a

:25:55.:25:57.

lot of design, discussion, sketching ideas. Much like science. I don't

:25:58.:26:05.

think it's that important that the public understand the details of

:26:06.:26:09.

what we are doing in the lab but what is important is that the public

:26:10.:26:13.

has a good time, enjoys themselves and see something new and learn

:26:14.:26:17.

something new and gets excited about the science. More than a dozen

:26:18.:26:21.

artists are taking part in the exhibition. It is at this venue

:26:22.:26:27.

until mid-May to show that science is beautiful.

It has been a going downhill type of day for many of us with rain moving

:26:31.:26:43.

in from the West. Blustery conditions for many. Particularly so

:26:44.:26:49.

along the West Coast and across the Northern Isles. This evening and for

:26:50.:26:52.

a time to write, further bands of rain coming in from the West,

:26:53.:26:56.

crossing the country and eventually clearing away into the North Sea. In

:27:10.:27:17.

around two to five Celsius. Wins will be veering westerly overnight.

:27:18.:27:20.

Tomorrow will start the day with a lot of dry weather. Plenty of

:27:21.:27:24.

brightness and sunshine. A chilly start as well. As we go through the

:27:25.:27:28.

day cloud will increase across many areas and we hold on to the showers

:27:29.:27:32.

across the North. There will be fairly frequent showers and at times

:27:33.:27:39.

heavy with hail and strong to gale force winds come tomorrow afternoon.

:27:40.:27:44.

Across much of the mainland, a fairly cloudy prospects tomorrow

:27:45.:27:47.

afternoon. The best of the brightness and sunshine will be in

:27:48.:27:51.

this sheltered East. Temperatures will peak around 13 Celsius. The

showers continued to affect the Western Isles and the north-west

:27:56.:27:59.

Highlands, accompanied by brisk, westerly winds. Tomorrow evening the

:28:00.:28:05.

winds will strengthen further across the Northern Isles. Gusts up to 65

the second half of the week. On Wednesday we will see a few showers

across western areas at least in the morning. The best of the brightness
