Rower Katherine Grainger became Britain's most decorated female
Olympian today by taking silver alongside Victoria Thornley
And she wasn't the only Scot with a medal to celebrate.
Let's cross to the Velodrome in Rio and our reporter Kheredine Idessane.
Yes, Scotland's main man is about to go for gold in the velodrome behind

What an absolutely sensational race we witnessed here
Silver for Katherine Grainger in the women's pairs,
along with her partner Vicky Thornley, Grainger's
They gave it their all in the double sculls.
The pair struggled in the build-up to these Games but were leading
for much of the race, only to lose out to the Polish power.
It is Grainger's fifth Olympic medal.
Overwhelming pride, that offers one to win out of all five medals.
There are not many people who would have expected us to lead
the race of that calibre of finalists.
It shows you the depth of belief we had in each other, and the boat.
Of course we were going to go to win the race, disappointing not
You have had a difficult build-up to this one.
Decision vindicated to put you in this team?
We had a lot of support, it's not like it was us
against the system and some people believed in us before
Of course we proved our selection was the right thing am proud
to walk away with not just a great result but a medal.
How long will it take to sink in, Britain's most decorated female
It's lovely, it's not the reason you do it but I will sit and enjoy
a glass of champagne tonight, one or two bottles!
A stunning setting here at Lagoa Stadium and a stunning day
Katherine Grainger winning a silver in the double sculls,
A wonderful moment for Katherine Grainger. She took silver on the
rowing lake. David Florence also on the water, could he go one better?
Not quite, he took a Sablon medal with its partner Richard Hounslow.
He was a satisfied man afterwards. Yes, it is very good. I would have
loved it to have been a gold medal but it is such a tough spot, when it
is when one that counts. For years, you see these other guys putting an
fantastic bronze and one little mistake and it is all over. I had
the same problem on my individual category. It is easy to look at how
close you are to the gold but you are also close to being in fourth
place or father down with that slightest of mistakes. Really
pleased with my performance. Even better that we get to stand the
podium. What a day Team GB Andy Scott is
athletes are having. Two silvers for David Florence and Katherine
Grainger. They are going for gold in the rugby sevens. Guaranteed silver.
Guaranteed silver in the velodrome where Calum Skinner is doing the leg
that was taken up previously by Sir Christopher Hawick. Guaranteed
silver. Andy Murray had a bit of a skier but he is into the
quarterfinals of the tennis. He is now playing mixed doubles in the
tennis but Heather Watson. Very busy here at the moment, back to you! --

operation to refloat an oil rig that ran aground
on the Western Isles on Sunday. Tens of thousands of litres

on the rocks on Dalmore beach as efforts to winch a salvage team
on board had to be abandoned again Diesel oil from two of its tanks has
leaked into the sea but coastguard officials are confident there has
been no major threat They say inspecting the damaged
structure is now their priority. We have to continue
with the assessments. We know there is a lot of damage
to the water ballast systems and they would probably be
fundamental to the We don't want to refloat
into deeper water and get But with high winds on the way,
the race is on to save the 17,000-tonne structure,
which grounded here in bad weather on Monday, from being savaged
by mother nature for a second time. The main concern being that some
damage will be caused to the legs. If that happened, it could topple
over and we could see a situation whereby it
would have to be broken up. Local people remain bewildered
by the presence of the huge rig, but some wonder if it
will be dismantled in situ Just cut it on-site,
that would take work for all these There is some speculation
that the rig could be refloated on the next high tide,
due in one week's time. But salvage experts have warned
that this unwelcome visitor is likely to occupy Dalmore beach
for a lot longer than that. Dozens of operations
have been postponed at the Royal Alexandra Hospital
in Paisley because of Staff are using bottled water
for activities, including cleaning, A series of strikes,
affecting hundreds of oil workers of a number of Shell platforms

to begin on Monday in a dispute between the RMT and Unite unions
and oil services firm Wood Group The RMT says fresh talks are now due
to take place next week. Well, it's over to Judith Ralston
