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

:00:00.:00:00.

The people of Barra mourn the teenager Eilidh MacLeod,

:00:07.:00:09.

after it's confirmed that she was killed

:00:10.:00:10.

It's at a time when you realise although we live in a remote area,

:00:11.:00:26.

we are all affected by what goes on in this world.

:00:27.:00:29.

We'll be live on Barra with the latest.

:00:30.:00:31.

Scotland falls silent in tribute to the victims of Monday's bombing.

:00:32.:00:37.

Police Scotland ask the public for patience with increased

:00:38.:00:39.

security at big events - likely to lead to delays.

:00:40.:00:47.

Right over the north of Scotland a lot of cloud...

:00:48.:00:52.

The former TV weatherman, Fred Talbot, is convicted

:00:53.:00:54.

of indecent assaults on teenage boys during camping trips in Scotland

:00:55.:00:57.

And Celtic fans return to the scene of their greatest triumph,

:00:58.:01:02.

50 years after the Lisbon Lions lifted the European Cup.

:01:03.:01:21.

The family of the Barra teenager, Eilidh MacLeod, have

:01:22.:01:24.

confirmed that she died in the Manchester terror attack.

:01:25.:01:27.

The 14-year-old had been unaccounted for since Monday night's bombing.

:01:28.:01:29.

Her friend Laura MacIntyre remains in hospital.

:01:30.:01:31.

Our reporter Cameron Buttle is on Barra for us this evening.

:01:32.:01:43.

This morning the people of Barra woke to the confirmation of the news

:01:44.:01:49.

that they had been dreading, that young Eilidh McLeod had been killed

:01:50.:01:53.

in the attack in Manchester. A statement from the family said,

:01:54.:01:59.

words can't express how we feel at losing our darling Eilidh. Today

:02:00.:02:03.

this community is sharing their pain. Behind the closed doors of

:02:04.:02:11.

church, the people of Barra observed a minute's silence. Outside as the

:02:12.:02:16.

church bells rang out, the streets were quiet. At the other end of

:02:17.:02:21.

town, the flags over the school flew at half-mast. Many here find

:02:22.:02:26.

strength in the church. Whatever the congregation. People know each other

:02:27.:02:33.

and know immediately who has been affected and not just the immediate

:02:34.:02:40.

family, but in a larger area is not immediate. But the human emotions

:02:41.:02:44.

and feelings are the same whether they're in Barra or Manchester.

:02:45.:02:49.

Eilidh's family said she was full of fun and loved music. And she was

:02:50.:02:53.

also an active member of the community, a piper in the band, a

:02:54.:02:58.

popular young teenager who will be sorely missed. It's at a time when

:02:59.:03:08.

you realise although we live in a remote affect, we are all affected

:03:09.:03:12.

by what goes on in this world and hopefully one day it will all...

:03:13.:03:18.

We'll all be at peace. Eilidh's family also made a point of

:03:19.:03:22.

expressing their gratitude for the support and kind messages they have

:03:23.:03:26.

received. Support that has come from far beyond the shores of Barra.

:03:27.:03:32.

Today, we have also been hearing about a special service held here

:03:33.:03:37.

last night. It was attended by around 300 people. We are told they

:03:38.:03:42.

sat in silence for five minutes. Just reflecting and thinking of the

:03:43.:03:46.

families and thinking of Laura McIntyre, who is still in hospital

:03:47.:03:47.

in Manchester. Thank you very much. One-minute silences have been held

:03:48.:03:53.

to honour the victims They were observed in towns

:03:54.:03:55.

and cities across Scotland. At 11 o'clock, a pause on time.

:03:56.:04:16.

Silence in honour of 22 lives lost on an innocent night out at a

:04:17.:04:23.

concert. On Scotland's most northerly islands a moment to mark

:04:24.:04:29.

the loss fell so deeply by their fellow island community of Barra.

:04:30.:04:34.

From emergency workers at Glasgow's central station. To visitors to

:04:35.:04:44.

Edinburgh's tourist attractions. And in Dundee's city square, people

:04:45.:04:49.

stopped. Church of Scotland ministers and elders holding their

:04:50.:04:53.

General Assembly and today with a visit from the Princess Royal, paid

:04:54.:04:57.

tribute to the victims for the second time this week. United across

:04:58.:05:01.

the country, they remembered. The minute's silence was also

:05:02.:05:07.

observed at Holyrood, but First Minister's question time

:05:08.:05:08.

went ahead as normal. Nicola Sturgeon said she shared

:05:09.:05:11.

the UK government's anger, after information about the police

:05:12.:05:13.

investigation into the Manchester Here's our political

:05:14.:05:15.

correspondent, Glenn Campbell. At Holyrood quiet reflection on the

:05:16.:05:33.

Manchester attack in which a Barra teenager was also killed. We will

:05:34.:05:38.

all want to send our love and thoughts to her family and friends

:05:39.:05:43.

at this dreadful time for them. Words of condolence echoed on all

:05:44.:05:47.

sides during a question time session less combative than usual. It would

:05:48.:05:54.

not be right to use today to indulge in a an election campaign. But

:05:55.:06:01.

concerns were still raised by opposition leaders, who said

:06:02.:06:05.

Parliament's work must go on. Political leaders talk about how we

:06:06.:06:10.

can't let the terrorists change our way of life. We do that by holding

:06:11.:06:16.

the Government to account. Then back to Manchester and the leak of

:06:17.:06:21.

details of the investigation to the US media, which has led to the

:06:22.:06:25.

suspension of normal intelligence sharing with America. It has been

:06:26.:06:31.

said that UK officials have expressed anger at the actions of

:06:32.:06:35.

the US intelligence service, does the First Minister share that

:06:36.:06:42.

reaction? I do share the anger and disbelief of the UK Government that

:06:43.:06:47.

we have seen very sensitive details from this ongoing live investigation

:06:48.:06:53.

leaked to the media in America. That is completely unacceptable.

:06:54.:06:57.

President Trump in Brussels for talks with EU and NATO leaders, said

:06:58.:07:02.

the leak was troubling and promised a review. He has to show he

:07:03.:07:07.

understand how big a deal this and reassure us in the United Kingdom

:07:08.:07:12.

that he is going to make sure that these leaks are found and don't

:07:13.:07:19.

happen again. It is despicable what happened, whoever is responsible,

:07:20.:07:24.

however high or low, needs to admit they made a misthabg. The First

:07:25.:07:29.

Minister said she hoped police and security forces could get back to

:07:30.:07:33.

normal intelligence sharing with America, because she said the

:07:34.:07:36.

arrangements keep people safe at home and around the world.

:07:37.:07:41.

With several large public events in Scotland in coming days,

:07:42.:07:43.

the Police have put in place measures to tighten security.

:07:44.:07:46.

Our Home Affairs correspondent Reevel Alderson reports.

:07:47.:07:53.

In this building the police have established a multi-agency

:07:54.:07:59.

co-ordination centre. They're here with other emergency services and

:08:00.:08:04.

armed forces personnel and the idea is to keep the security situation

:08:05.:08:08.

under review. One of the first considerations is a number of high

:08:09.:08:14.

profile public events. And joining me is the assistant Chief Constable.

:08:15.:08:22.

The first of these is the Lisbon Lions concert in Glasgow today? Yes

:08:23.:08:27.

it is important to emphasise that while the UK remains at a threat

:08:28.:08:30.

level of critical, there is no intelligence to suggested that the

:08:31.:08:36.

event tonight or any other event is under threat of attack. However, we

:08:37.:08:40.

are at critical and what we did over the last couple of days was review

:08:41.:08:45.

the security arrangements for every events that will happen in the next

:08:46.:08:52.

fortnight. Will we see armed officers at this and the Cup Final?

:08:53.:08:58.

Yes that is one of the enhancements that we have taken. Again, people

:08:59.:09:03.

for tonight and the Cup Final, they should come early. The venues will

:09:04.:09:07.

be opening earlier than normal. Because as well as having additional

:09:08.:09:17.

or conventional and armed officer, there will be a search regime. Thank

:09:18.:09:23.

you. The message is one of reassurance and don't be alarmed if

:09:24.:09:27.

you see police officers carrying firearms and also arrive at the

:09:28.:09:31.

destination earlier to go through security checks.

:09:32.:09:34.

The former ITV weatherman, Fred Talbot, has been convicted

:09:35.:09:36.

of seven counts of indecent assault on teenage boys.

:09:37.:09:39.

The assaults were carried out in the late '70s and early

:09:40.:09:42.

'80s, when Talbot was a teacher in Manchester.

:09:43.:09:45.

Lanark Sheriff Court heard that he preyed on the pupils,

:09:46.:09:48.

while on school camping trips in Dumfries and Galloway and boating

:09:49.:09:50.

Right over the north of Scotland... Fred Talbot made his name as a

:09:51.:10:12.

weather man on ITV but he had a history of preying on pupils. When

:10:13.:10:18.

employed as a biology teacher in Manchester, he took boys on camping

:10:19.:10:24.

trips. To the Moffatt area and on boating trips to the Caledonian

:10:25.:10:26.

canal. The courts heard accounts from several men who were aged just

:10:27.:10:33.

15 to 17 at the time, who found themselves targeted by Talbot. The

:10:34.:10:38.

jury convicted him on seven charges of indecent assault. Finding two

:10:39.:10:48.

charges not proven. Talbot stared ahead as the verdicts were read out.

:10:49.:10:59.

The Sheriff said she was ordering background reports. He said thank

:11:00.:11:03.

you and dipped his head before he was led to the cells. Fred Talbot

:11:04.:11:16.

abused his position. Boys were entrusted into his care. He arranged

:11:17.:11:24.

trips to Scotland and it is clear he groomed the young boys, who have

:11:25.:11:28.

actually stood up as men, decades later and told their stories. Talbot

:11:29.:11:37.

was convicted two years ago in Manchester of indecent assault and

:11:38.:11:41.

jailed for five years. During that investigation, Talbot was quizzed

:11:42.:11:42.

about notes he made in his diary. Black something. My riting is

:11:43.:11:55.

dreadful. That is your writing. No comment. Talbot has now been

:11:56.:12:01.

returned to prison in England, where he is still serving his previous

:12:02.:12:06.

term and will be back in Scotland in three weeks for sentence here.

:12:07.:12:16.

MSPs have written to the Justice Secretary to say

:12:17.:12:17.

they don't have confidence in the chair of the Scottish Police

:12:18.:12:20.

In a report just published, Members of Holyrood's Justice

:12:21.:12:24.

sub-committee on policing say they share very serious

:12:25.:12:25.

concerns about the standards of governance at the SPA.

:12:26.:12:27.

It follows weeks of parliamentary scrutiny of the watchdog that

:12:28.:12:29.

oversees Police Scotland, after concerns about a lack

:12:30.:12:31.

The SPA today agreed to hold board meetings in public wherever possible

:12:32.:12:35.

and Mr Flanagan says that change will address the concerns

:12:36.:12:38.

The General Assembly of the Church of Scotland has voted in favour

:12:39.:13:01.

of an apology to gay people for its history of discrimination.

:13:02.:13:04.

They have also been debating whether how same sex weddings

:13:05.:13:06.

Andrew Anderson is at the General Assembly on the Mound

:13:07.:13:10.

The issue continues to divide faiths and causes division within faiths

:13:11.:13:15.

and that's certainly true within the Church of Scotland. They have

:13:16.:13:17.

debated this six times now in the last ten years and here they were

:13:18.:13:20.

today at the General Assembly in Edinburgh debating it once more. The

:13:21.:13:24.

proposal before them, to allow gay marriages within the Kirk. It was a

:13:25.:13:28.

lengthy and at times deeply theological discussion which really

:13:29.:13:32.

comes down to whether the word of God is in favour or not of same-sex

:13:33.:13:37.

relationships. Here is a flavour of the debate.

:13:38.:13:41.

Once again we elevate the rights of man and leave the Bible aside. The

:13:42.:13:47.

rights of God are being forgotten and the rights of man are being

:13:48.:13:54.

pervaded. That cannot be just position, a good position for any

:13:55.:13:59.

professing Christian or professing church. We are never going to come

:14:00.:14:04.

to an agreement on all of these theological matters, and simply to

:14:05.:14:09.

keep repeating them and bring God 's name into them all calls into

:14:10.:14:14.

question my whole calling, my understanding of God, and my witness

:14:15.:14:15.

to Scripture. So tonight the members of the Church

:14:16.:14:23.

of Scotland have accepted a report that finds there are no longer

:14:24.:14:27.

theological grounds to deny ministers the authority to conduct

:14:28.:14:33.

gay marriages. However it also calls for protection for ministers who for

:14:34.:14:37.

reasons of conscience do not want to preside over such ceremonies so

:14:38.:14:41.

there is a way to go. You are not going to be seeing gay marriages in

:14:42.:14:46.

the Church of Scotland any time soon.

:14:47.:14:47.

They were the pioneers who changed the path of photography.

:14:48.:14:51.

In just four years, David Octavius Hill

:14:52.:14:52.

and Robert Adamson produced hundreds of images, many of them

:14:53.:14:55.

Now an exhibition - the first in 15 years -

:14:56.:14:59.

explores their work and their legacy.

:15:00.:15:00.

Our arts correspondent Pauline McLean reports.

:15:01.:15:07.

It was a short partnership but a productive one. In four years in the

:15:08.:15:15.

1840s, David Octavius Hill and Robert Adamson produced hundreds of

:15:16.:15:18.

photographs, some of the earliest in the world. Most are held here at the

:15:19.:15:26.

Scottish National Portrait Gallery, home to the largest collection of

:15:27.:15:31.

the work anywhere. But a short distance from the portrait Gallery

:15:32.:15:36.

is where it all began. This is Rock house, where they had a studio in

:15:37.:15:42.

the 1840s, and where they created so much of the ground-breaking work.

:15:43.:15:46.

With no flash, no technology, they had to use natural light, often

:15:47.:15:52.

relocating their subjects to the garden. They go to great lengths to

:15:53.:15:57.

create these interior spaces which are in fact set up in the garden,

:15:58.:16:03.

bringing out upholstered chairs and fabric backdrops, tables and props.

:16:04.:16:09.

All of these to create the illusion that the photograph was made indoors

:16:10.:16:13.

but it wasn't, it was all outdoors. They developed simple techniques

:16:14.:16:18.

like using an open book to cast light on a sitter's face or adding

:16:19.:16:24.

props to keep the subject still. There is no cannon they are looking

:16:25.:16:29.

back to, they are making it up, they are creating what would become the

:16:30.:16:33.

steadfast principles of photography that are still even in use today.

:16:34.:16:37.

The techniques they developed allowed them to go further afield,

:16:38.:16:42.

photographing people at work and play, but for most the studio was

:16:43.:16:47.

still the place to be and people flocked there. There's many a moment

:16:48.:16:52.

I wish I had a time machine and I could come back. For a visitor

:16:53.:16:56.

arriving for a portrait session, there would have been the element of

:16:57.:17:01.

questioning, how are they going to do this? These days photos are quick

:17:02.:17:06.

and easy, which is why the great efforts of Scotland's photography

:17:07.:17:11.

pioneers are well worth remembering. Aberdeen city centre has been turned

:17:12.:17:14.

into a professional racing circuit, It's the most northerly stage

:17:15.:17:18.

of the UK tour and is in the city Among the riders -

:17:19.:17:23.

triple Olympic champion Ed Clancy. We can join reporter Fiona Stalker

:17:24.:17:27.

near the starting line. The sun is shining, it is more like

:17:28.:17:40.

Tour de France whether in Aberdeen, the atmosphere is buzzing. There are

:17:41.:17:44.

huge crowds tonight in the centre of Aberdeen where there is a circuit

:17:45.:17:51.

being created. It looks like it has pretty sharp bends, it is high

:17:52.:17:54.

octane and high adrenaline. The men's race is at 7:30pm. We have

:17:55.:18:01.

triple Olympian Ed Clancy with us tonight who will give his views on

:18:02.:18:06.

the circuit. Ed, the sun is shining, it couldn't be better. It is great

:18:07.:18:12.

to see. Talking about the circuit, it looks like a real good one. There

:18:13.:18:17.

is a big crowd already and we are still hard for an hour away from the

:18:18.:18:21.

start. There will be a tricky section which is good for the

:18:22.:18:25.

spectators, and a nice hot dog turn at the end so it will make a good

:18:26.:18:29.

race. How does Aberdeen compared to the rest of the stages, the

:18:30.:18:35.

atmosphere? I think it is the best we have seen, it is great to see. We

:18:36.:18:40.

went for coffee earlier, every shop has a bit in the window advertising

:18:41.:18:45.

the race, everyone has embraced it. We will let you continue with your

:18:46.:18:51.

warm up. The men's race is at 7:30pm. I will go home and get my

:18:52.:18:55.

bike, you have got to start somewhere.

:18:56.:19:00.

The celebrations to mark the fiftieth anniversary

:19:01.:19:01.

of Celtic's European Cup triumph are continuing this evening

:19:02.:19:04.

Let's go to David Curry in Lisbon. Welcome to Lisbon and the very place

:19:05.:19:24.

the magic happened all those years ago. This is where the underdogs

:19:25.:19:32.

Celtic vanquished the mighty inter-Milan to become European

:19:33.:19:34.

champions and today hundreds of Celtic supporters have been coming

:19:35.:19:40.

here to reflect upon and indeed to remember the events of half a

:19:41.:19:41.

century ago. Journey 's end for these footballing

:19:42.:19:52.

pilgrims, but I'm under place to celebrate and commemorate. A bit

:19:53.:20:00.

emotional. It is great, re-enacting the whole thing again. You never

:20:01.:20:05.

realise the importance of that victory. It really is moving. My dad

:20:06.:20:14.

brought me here when he was 50 years of age, four months later we moved

:20:15.:20:19.

to Australia. Coming here, I get misty eyed. I'm going to head up

:20:20.:20:26.

there and take it all in. This man was here 50 years ago and the only

:20:27.:20:34.

reason he was here... Because the Portuguese cup final is being held

:20:35.:20:38.

here on Sunday, reporters were asked not to go on the pitch. Not everyone

:20:39.:20:46.

was listening. For some supporters, the journey from Scotland was truly

:20:47.:20:55.

epic. The car struggled over the Pyrenees, let's just say that. It

:20:56.:21:01.

was doing 20 mph up some of the hills but we got there in the end.

:21:02.:21:14.

Tell me about your journey. Absolutely awesome. Glasgow to

:21:15.:21:20.

Lisbon, 14 days, 13 cyclists from various parts of the world. The

:21:21.:21:26.

cyclists set out to emulate the journey the team and the fans made

:21:27.:21:32.

and to be here today is so special. Amid the nostalgia, it was time to

:21:33.:21:36.

create a few new memories, recreating the most iconic moment in

:21:37.:21:37.

Scottish football history. I am staring wistfully at the goal

:21:38.:21:55.

area where Celtic scored the two goals against inter-Milan exactly 50

:21:56.:22:00.

years ago. I might go and have some potshots later this evening. Back to

:22:01.:22:01.

the studio. The celebrations are continuing this

:22:02.:22:13.

evening in Glasgow too and you can see fans behind me gathering for a

:22:14.:22:18.

concert outside the Hydro. Let's see if we can find our reporter in

:22:19.:22:27.

there. Chris. It is like Lisbon weather here as well but I'm on the

:22:28.:22:31.

banks of the Clyde where footballing VIPs have been arriving for a

:22:32.:22:35.

special reception just in front of me. They are now heading off to the

:22:36.:22:40.

Hydro for a special event that is being described as an extravaganza

:22:41.:22:45.

to relive the journey to Lisbon through music, comedy and

:22:46.:22:49.

conversation. Rod Stewart is kicking things off, going through a sound

:22:50.:22:53.

check at the moment, but earlier I spoke to another Scot who is no

:22:54.:22:57.

stranger himself to the European cup. An amazing achievement. The

:22:58.:23:03.

expectation rose from winning the cup against Dunfermline.

:23:04.:23:13.

Unbelievable. It will always be regarded as the greatest football

:23:14.:23:15.

feat. They got the semifinal, which is a

:23:16.:23:36.

great achievement, but Celtic, with players all within 25 miles of each

:23:37.:23:42.

other, it's astonishing. Sir Alex Ferguson there. Tonight 's event is

:23:43.:23:46.

the biggest of its kind in Scotland since the attack in Manchester

:23:47.:23:51.

earlier in the week. Security has been stepped up, plenty of extra

:23:52.:23:56.

police officers on show, plenty of extra security guards as well, as

:23:57.:24:01.

around 12,000 Celtic fans pack into the Hydro to remember that famous

:24:02.:24:06.

:25:12.:25:20.

unfortunately. You can see the temperatures, for many quite a

the UV levels will be high with the risk of sunburn. A very similar

story to today, temperatures inland in the mid to high 20s. A bit more
