:00:00.:00:14.

But it's a former President that's coming here -

:00:15.:00:16.

Barack Obama will make his first visit to Scotland next month.

:00:17.:00:19.

I think it is fantastic news. A lot of people back home in Scotland will

:00:20.:00:28.

be looking forward to welcoming President Obama and hearing what he

:00:29.:00:29.

has to say. We speak to the father

:00:30.:00:33.

of missing airman Corrie McKeague, who's holding

:00:34.:00:39.

a vigil at a landfill site in Cambridgeshire

for women's sport. Glasgow City's manager says

there should be a 50-50 gender split The First Minister has told

:00:48.:00:49.

Reporting Scotland that she'd be willing to meet Donald Trump

:00:50.:01:10.

when he comes to the UK Nicola Sturgeon said that

:01:11.:01:13.

despite their disagreements, she wouldn't turn down an invitation

:01:14.:01:16.

from the US President. She was speaking in New York,

:01:17.:01:18.

as it was confirmed that Donald Trump's predecessor,

:01:19.:01:21.

Barack Obama, is to From New York, here's our political

:01:22.:01:23.

correspondent, Glenn Campbell. To see Scottish Ballet dancers

:01:24.:01:39.

performing in new York. With every overseas adventure that there is a

:01:40.:01:44.

diplomatic dance as well. Our best to engage with the Government of

:01:45.:01:47.

your host country, especially when you disagree with its leader. On

:01:48.:01:52.

this trip, the first minister is not seeing anyone from the Trump

:01:53.:01:56.

administration. It is not a deliberate move. This trip has been

:01:57.:02:02.

very much focused on initiatives. Are you focusing President Trump or

:02:03.:02:08.

is he snapping you? There is no snapping. President Trump is meeting

:02:09.:02:15.

the leader of China today but it is about focusing on business links

:02:16.:02:19.

between Scotland and America. Before he became president he famously took

:02:20.:02:27.

a swing at the Scottish Government over the view on his golf course. I

:02:28.:02:45.

think America will dingying him. During the presidential campaign,

:02:46.:02:49.

Nicola Sturgeon removed Donald Trump as business ambassador for Scotland

:02:50.:02:53.

when he proposed a ban on Muslims entering the United States. Today,

:02:54.:02:59.

the first minister has welcomed as fantastic news that his predecessor,

:03:00.:03:06.

Barack Obama, has visited -- is to visit Scotland was that she has made

:03:07.:03:11.

her preferences in American politics perfectly clear. I think the first

:03:12.:03:19.

minister and president Trump should look at ways for our countries to

:03:20.:03:24.

work together and meet together and get past any problems. The American

:03:25.:03:28.

people and the Scottish people have a long history of friendship. We

:03:29.:03:32.

have a great alliance and that should be deep end. If and when it

:03:33.:03:39.

comes to the UK and a visit to Scotland, will you see him them? Not

:03:40.:03:44.

going to decline to meet the president of the United States if

:03:45.:03:47.

there is an invitation to meet him. Like many others across the world,

:03:48.:03:52.

will have disagreement with President Trump and no doubt he will

:03:53.:03:55.

have a disagreement with me. That will not stand in the wake of the

:03:56.:04:00.

very strong links between our to macro countries. In diplomacy you

:04:01.:04:04.

don't always get to choose your partners.

:04:05.:04:05.

While the First Minister is in the US, it's been announced

:04:06.:04:08.

that one former US president is coming to Scotland.

:04:09.:04:11.

Barack Obama will visit Edinburgh next month for a charity event

:04:12.:04:13.

arranged by philanthropist Sir Tom Hunter.

:04:14.:04:14.

The 44th President of the United States will address

:04:15.:04:17.

business leaders and local schoolchildren in Edinburgh.

:04:18.:04:18.

Our correspondent Lucy Adams reports.

:04:19.:04:28.

At this defining moment the change has come to America. Barack Obama

:04:29.:04:36.

being voted in almost nine years ago after a campaign focused on hope. No

:04:37.:04:46.

stranger to British shores in 2014, he waded into the debate around the

:04:47.:04:52.

Scottish referendum on independence, saying he backed strong and united

:04:53.:04:58.

UK. For Scotland, there is a referendum process in place and it

:04:59.:05:01.

is up to the people of Scotland. He has left the White House and in one

:05:02.:05:06.

of his first public event he plans to speak in Edinburgh. Trying to get

:05:07.:05:10.

President Obama was difficult. That is Forshaw. With a bit of

:05:11.:05:14.

persistence and a lot of good luck, we are delighted that he has chosen

:05:15.:05:19.

Scotland to deliver what we believe is one of his first speech is coming

:05:20.:05:24.

out of the White House. There will be a Q and A and we know how much

:05:25.:05:30.

the president loves his music. We have some great Scottish talent that

:05:31.:05:34.

will perform for the president on the evening. He is not the first

:05:35.:05:39.

former US president who has been lurid to Scotland. To years ago he

:05:40.:05:49.

drew George Clooney to Edinburgh. Last year he persuaded Leonardo

:05:50.:05:53.

DiCaprio to come for a similar charity event. The dinner in May is

:05:54.:05:59.

expected to draw big crowds. What I have seen a President Obama is that

:06:00.:06:05.

he is a nice bloke. I wish he were coming to England. He is a very

:06:06.:06:10.

influential man. Be great to have someone of his stature coming to

:06:11.:06:14.

Edinburgh. He is expected to face a very different reaction to the man

:06:15.:06:18.

who has followed him in office. He has stayed out of the public eye.

:06:19.:06:23.

His coming to Scotland will send a message. The fact that, I imagined

:06:24.:06:28.

when he will be warmly welcomed but if Donald Trump were to come here

:06:29.:06:37.

that would probably not be the case. It is not clear if it is the

:06:38.:06:39.

country's golf courses that have persuaded Barack Obama to come to

:06:40.:06:42.

Scotland but it is clear many will be lining up to meet him,

:06:43.:06:45.

Scotland but it is clear many will some of Scotland's 's high-profile

politicians. The process of an independent

:06:48.:06:49.

Scotland rejoining the European Union could

:06:50.:06:51.

be "relatively speedy". That's according to

:06:52.:06:53.

a senior German MEP. Elmar Brok said there would be few

:06:54.:06:54.

technical obstacles to overcome, if the political will was there

:06:55.:06:57.

to allow it to happen. The Conservatives said any deal

:06:58.:07:09.

would mean Scotland giving up too much.

:07:10.:07:12.

From Strasbourg, here's our political

:07:13.:07:13.

The European Union store flyers outside the European

:07:14.:07:16.

It won't when the UK leaves the EU but the Brexit process has raised

:07:17.:07:31.

questions over the future of the UK itself.

:07:32.:07:33.

Nicola Sturgeon wants you, Scotland's voters, to have a choice

:07:34.:07:35.

And her party as things stand still want Scotland to be

:07:36.:07:39.

That has been given a boost in recent weeks with senior

:07:40.:07:43.

Spanish politicians, including this man,

:07:44.:07:44.

the Foreign Minister, saying they wouldn't

:07:45.:07:46.

Elmar Brok is a member of Angela Merkel's CDU,

:07:47.:07:53.

and he played a key role forming the EU's Constitution.

:07:54.:07:56.

It fulfils all the conditions as a member of the European Union.

:07:57.:08:10.

Therefore, there won't be many technical problems.

:08:11.:08:11.

If there is political agreement, then the process

:08:12.:08:13.

Is there a queue to join the EU or is there a process?

:08:14.:08:23.

There is a process, not a cue, every country comes in on its own merits.

:08:24.:08:26.

To leave the EU but wouldn't face significant barriers

:08:27.:08:31.

Some in the SNP have said they haven't given up on the idea

:08:32.:08:42.

of Scotland remaining when the UK leaves.

:08:43.:08:45.

Some think that could prove useful if there

:08:46.:08:47.

The solidarity between EU member states, one member state will back

:08:48.:08:58.

up the government of another one and the UK Government last week

:08:59.:09:01.

decided it isn't going to be a member state for much longer

:09:02.:09:04.

People will be more vocal in Scotland.

:09:05.:09:07.

If Scotland voted for independence, some say the price of rejoining

:09:08.:09:09.

Scotland would have to sell out to get back in.

:09:10.:09:15.

The more you give up the easier it is to get in.

:09:16.:09:20.

Getting in on the same terms as the UK won't be possible

:09:21.:09:30.

because the rebate for the UK is despised across Europe.

:09:31.:09:32.

It could be easy if you give up on all the stuff you want.

:09:33.:09:39.

one and working out the future will be, too.

:09:40.:09:41.

The amount of money Scottish councils have raised

:09:42.:09:43.

from parking charges - and penalties - has increased

:09:44.:09:45.

Councils took in a surplus of ?40 million -

:09:46.:09:51.

up from 36 million the previous year, according to

:09:52.:09:53.

Edinburgh City Council gained the most with more than ?19 million.

:09:54.:10:00.

Well, I am sure many of us have had a bit of a grumbling the years about

:10:01.:10:17.

paying for parking. It is a reality both in city centre locations like

:10:18.:10:21.

this and more rural parts. Today the debate over how much we pay to park

:10:22.:10:24.

has been reignited once again. If you want to get a parking space

:10:25.:10:29.

in the middle of Edinburgh, you have If you want to get a parking space

to be sharp eyed, give no quarter and have your money ready. There is

:10:37.:10:42.

one. Here I am on George Street in Edinburgh, I have finally managed to

:10:43.:10:49.

get a parking space will stop now, the next thing I need to do is pay

:10:50.:10:54.

for parking. Otherwise I might get a fine. Parking here is not the

:10:55.:11:03.

cheapest. These prices have allowed councils to make some decent

:11:04.:11:09.

profits. Research published today by the RAC foundation found that in the

:11:10.:11:15.

financial year 2015/ ?2016 Scotland's 32 councils made ?79

:11:16.:11:24.

million through parking costs. The profit came to ?14 million.

:11:25.:11:30.

Edinburgh made the biggest profit led ?19.4 million, followed by

:11:31.:11:35.

Glasgow with 12.6 million. And in third place, Aberdeen made 4.9

:11:36.:11:40.

million. Some councils actually made a loss, including East

:11:41.:11:44.

Dunbartonshire which recorded a deficit of half ?1 million. One

:11:45.:11:47.

Dunbartonshire which recorded a expert says the system today runs

:11:48.:11:51.

very efficiently. It squeezes out people who tried to over park. It

:11:52.:11:57.

penalises people who park in properly. Many claims that they have

:11:58.:12:01.

been punished by a parking attendant or parking boredom are just people

:12:02.:12:07.

trying to get away with it. Do people think they should be paying

:12:08.:12:11.

less? Less than what they are charging now but I do believe they

:12:12.:12:15.

have to charge to keep traffic at a minimum. That is acceptable, I

:12:16.:12:21.

think. Especially when it is such a busy place. You are in the heart of

:12:22.:12:26.

this lovely city. You do have to pay a bit of a premium. Having said

:12:27.:12:32.

that, it is a bit of a shock. ?3.80 an hour. A few minor grumbles but it

:12:33.:12:39.

does look like parking charges are here to stay.

:12:40.:12:42.

The local council says Moffat from parking are reinvested into

:12:43.:12:52.

transport projects. It helps local business. That is a similar response

:12:53.:12:57.

to many local authorities. They say you may be paying for your parking

:12:58.:12:59.

but it is all for the greater good. A trade union whose members

:13:00.:13:04.

are taking industrial action at the Faslane and Coulport naval

as a sexual predator who filmed the abuse to be shared

have had with the police and all the agencies that have been there to

The father of Corrie McKeague says he will maintain his vigil

:14:11.:14:13.

at a landfill until his son's body is found.

:14:14.:14:15.

Police have been searching the site in Cambridgeshire

:14:16.:14:17.

The airman from Dunfermline went missing after a night

:14:18.:14:21.

Police are now almost certain he ended up in a bin lorry.

:14:22.:14:28.

Every day, for a fortnight, Martin and his wife Tricia has been camped

:14:29.:14:36.

in this lay-by, a stone 's throw from the landfill at Milton. He has

:14:37.:14:41.

been to the site five times, mindful that at any moment his son's remains

:14:42.:14:44.

might be recovered. There are no words for it. Every time it picks up

:14:45.:14:51.

a load and lays it out, there is every chance that is the one that

:14:52.:15:00.

could have him in it. Today, his mother shared this video of the

:15:01.:15:06.

airmen from Scotland. The 23-year-old disappeared in Bury St

:15:07.:15:10.

Edmunds last September. Suffolk police are now convinced he ended up

:15:11.:15:13.

in a commercial bin and was then transported to the landfill, near

:15:14.:15:18.

Cambridge. Why are you putting yourself through this, visiting five

:15:19.:15:23.

times, staying here? That is my son. There is every possibility that he

:15:24.:15:29.

is there. I have just got to come. Police were criticised for not

:15:30.:15:36.

searching the landfill sooner. At the time, they were mistakenly told

:15:37.:15:40.

that it only weighed seven kilograms. It was actually heavy

:15:41.:15:45.

enough to have contained a body. His father says the police could not

:15:46.:15:49.

have done more. We cannot thank Suffolk and Norfolk police enough,

:15:50.:15:53.

what they have done to try and find Corrie. You don't think I could have

:15:54.:15:59.

been done sooner? This could not have been done sooner. 1500 tonnes

:16:00.:16:04.

of waste have been searched so far. The surge could last another five

weeks. While Martin keeps his vigil, The surge could last another five

his mother and her two other sons have not been to the landfill. They

:16:12.:16:14.

say the experience would be too distressing. However, since the

The new financial year today sees new tax powers

:16:57.:16:58.

Tax rates are diverging for the first time between Scotland

:16:59.:17:08.

Our business and economy editor Douglas Fraser is here to explain.

:17:09.:17:12.

Higher earners, around one in seven people paying

:17:13.:17:18.

income tax in Scotland, are going to pay a higher tax bill

:17:19.:17:21.

than those earning the same in the rest of Britain -

:17:22.:17:24.

In Scotland, if you are paid ?43,000 or more a year

:17:25.:17:30.

40p for every ?1 end, that is a step up from 20% below that. Elsewhere,

:17:31.:17:50.

you will start paying 40% at ?45,000. If you fall into this

:17:51.:17:53.

category in Scotland, you will end up paying ?400 a year more in income

:17:54.:17:58.

tax and ?240 in national insurance paid to the Treasury. What effect is

:17:59.:18:09.

this going to have? It does raise an estimated ?107 million that would

:18:10.:18:13.

not otherwise be there. This is a tax cut in the rest of the UK. The

:18:14.:18:17.

priority in the budget deal struck at Hollywood is that the money is

:18:18.:18:23.

going to council budgets. As for the tax, ?400 per person is probably not

:18:24.:18:26.

going to make a huge difference to people shifting tax affairs around,

:18:27.:18:29.

moving out of Scotland or whatever. But this is just the start of the

:18:30.:18:33.

divergences, which is the whole point of getting these powers

:18:34.:18:36.

devolved for Holyrood. The question is, how much more can be done to add

:18:37.:18:41.

extra funds for public services, or to cut tax, to attract people into

:18:42.:18:46.

Scotland? What changes can be made before people start to move tax

:18:47.:18:50.

affairs around and perhaps use imaginative methods to minimise

:18:51.:18:51.

their tax bills? Set visiting times at all of NHS

:18:52.:18:56.

Grampian's hospitals Instead, friends and relatives

:18:57.:18:58.

will be allowed to visit The "Welcome Wards" approach follows

:18:59.:19:02.

a successful three-month trial in a geriatric ward

:19:03.:19:05.

at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary. Visiting time is the busiest time at

:19:06.:19:19.

any big hospital. Busy car parks, busy corridors. Friends and

:19:20.:19:22.

relatives, spending valuable time with loved ones. Tom visits his

:19:23.:19:33.

granny. NHS Grampian is scrapping traditional visiting hours at all

:19:34.:19:38.

its hospitals. Visits can happen whenever the patient wants. That is

:19:39.:19:43.

important for Tom and his granny. Personally, I would rather be here

:19:44.:19:48.

all day with her, with my grandmother, who has these language

:19:49.:19:53.

difficulties. I can be here to facilitate care, ask questions and

:19:54.:20:01.

translate for her. I have very little time with her. The imposition

:20:02.:20:06.

of visiting time rules can be awkward. After a trial period, NHS

:20:07.:20:12.

Grampian has extended the open wards policy. We have heard from family

:20:13.:20:15.

and patients that it has been immensely helpful for family members

:20:16.:20:19.

to be here when doctors are on the ward, nursing staff and colleagues

:20:20.:20:24.

are working with the patient, to be able to provide their experience as

:20:25.:20:27.

well on what that is like for them. The new visiting time regime will

:20:28.:20:30.

come into effect in June. The manager of Glasgow City,

:20:31.:20:34.

Scotland's women's football champions, says there needs to be

:20:35.:20:36.

a 50-50 gender split And the club are so convinced,

:20:37.:20:38.

they've emblazoned a message But one marketing expert says

:20:39.:20:44.

women's sport must earn the right to be in the public eye,

:20:45.:20:48.

just like everyone else. Here's our senior football

:20:49.:20:50.

reporter, Chris McLaughlin. It is a kit launch with a difference

:20:51.:21:07.

and with a message. In other words, if the media do not cover us, we

:21:08.:21:12.

can't be role models to young women. I feel a club like Glasgow city, the

:21:13.:21:18.

women's national teams, all sorts of sport, we have brilliant role models

:21:19.:21:21.

but they are not visible, because of what we think is a lack of media

:21:22.:21:27.

coverage. And according to the organisation Women In Sport, it is a

:21:28.:21:31.

battle across all sports. Their figures suggest of the TV coverage

:21:32.:21:37.

in the UK, only 10% is devoted to women's sport. They say the figure

:21:38.:21:41.

falls to 2% in national newspaper coverage, with an overall percentage

:21:42.:21:47.

of just 7% in all coverage. But how much should current appetite

:21:48.:21:53.

account? And our media organisations making coverage decisions based on

:21:54.:21:56.

commercial reality or commercial attentional? It is a competitive

:21:57.:22:00.

world out there. Nobody deserves anything, you've got to work hard at

:22:01.:22:09.

Around 800 people a year in Scotland have to have a leg amputated.

:23:11.:23:13.

Not everyone is suitable for an artificial leg or prosthesis.

:23:14.:23:15.

A documentary tonight follows some of those who have had

:23:16.:23:18.

Iona Hay was a small child when she lost her leg,

:23:19.:23:24.

but the way she's coped since has proved an inspiration.

:23:25.:23:26.

Hi, daddy, look at me! Just before her sixth birthday, Iona Hay had her

:23:27.:23:43.

right leg amputated because of bone cancer. But it didn't hold her back

:23:44.:23:47.

then or now. When I wake up in the morning, I remind myself that I do

:23:48.:23:52.

have a prosthetic leg. I completely forget. I just wake up and I am

:23:53.:23:58.

probably still half asleep when I put it on. It is so natural now. I

:23:59.:24:02.

can't think of anything different. I feel like I can do whatever I want.

:24:03.:24:13.

I do dancing, hockey. Good, Iona, really, really good! As she grows,

:24:14.:24:21.

she regularly needs new legs. Probably time for a new cask Ding

:24:22.:24:27.

Kast? Every few months, she visits the biggest centre of its kind in

:24:28.:24:31.

the country for another fitting. The people here have been fantastic.

:24:32.:24:36.

They are very quick to adapt the prosthesis to help. The support, the

:24:37.:24:43.

physio she has got to help her walk properly and move properly has been

:24:44.:24:47.

really helpful. It stops some of the problems that can occur. However

:24:48.:24:53.

well Iona manages with her prosthetic leg, she will always need

:24:54.:24:59.

physiotherapy. She will have lifelong treatment in outpatient

:25:00.:25:05.

service because of the prosthetics and physiotherapy needs. Obviously

:25:06.:25:08.

she will be seen by the team to have her leg continually renewed as and

:25:09.:25:17.

when required, to make sure she can walk in a normal pattern. Now a

:25:18.:25:21.

teenager, she is being fitted for her 17th leg. Feels good. It feels

:25:22.:25:28.

really comfortable. And you can see more on Iona
