Here on BBC One it's time for the news where you are.

Rower Katherine Grainger became Britain's most decorated female

:00:12.:00:15.

Olympian today by taking silver alongside Victoria Thornley

:00:16.:00:17.

And she wasn't the only Scot with a medal to celebrate.

:00:18.:00:21.

Let's cross to the Velodrome in Rio and our reporter Kheredine Idessane.

:00:22.:00:24.

Yes, Scotland's main man is about to go for gold in the velodrome behind

:00:25.:00:40.

cover for Katherine Grainger, it is nearly was as Dame Liz reports. --

:00:46.:00:52.

will be the cover. -- Jane Lewis reports.

:00:53.:00:58.

What an absolutely sensational race we witnessed here

:00:59.:01:00.

Silver for Katherine Grainger in the women's pairs,

:01:01.:01:02.

along with her partner Vicky Thornley, Grainger's

:01:03.:01:04.

They gave it their all in the double sculls.

:01:05.:01:10.

The pair struggled in the build-up to these Games but were leading

:01:11.:01:13.

for much of the race, only to lose out to the Polish power.

:01:14.:01:16.

It is Grainger's fifth Olympic medal.

:01:17.:01:17.

Overwhelming pride, that offers one to win out of all five medals.

:01:18.:01:20.

There are not many people who would have expected us to lead

:01:21.:01:24.

the race of that calibre of finalists.

:01:25.:01:26.

It shows you the depth of belief we had in each other, and the boat.

:01:27.:01:29.

Of course we were going to go to win the race, disappointing not

:01:30.:01:32.

You have had a difficult build-up to this one.

:01:33.:01:44.

Decision vindicated to put you in this team?

:01:45.:01:46.

We had a lot of support, it's not like it was us

:01:47.:01:50.

against the system and some people believed in us before

:01:51.:01:52.

Of course we proved our selection was the right thing am proud

:01:53.:01:56.

to walk away with not just a great result but a medal.

:01:57.:02:01.

How long will it take to sink in, Britain's most decorated female

:02:02.:02:03.

It's lovely, it's not the reason you do it but I will sit and enjoy

:02:04.:02:10.

a glass of champagne tonight, one or two bottles!

:02:11.:02:13.

A stunning setting here at Lagoa Stadium and a stunning day

:02:14.:02:22.

Katherine Grainger winning a silver in the double sculls,

:02:23.:02:26.

A wonderful moment for Katherine Grainger. She took silver on the

:02:27.:02:42.

rowing lake. David Florence also on the water, could he go one better?

:02:43.:02:48.

Not quite, he took a Sablon medal with its partner Richard Hounslow.

:02:49.:02:54.

He was a satisfied man afterwards. Yes, it is very good. I would have

:02:55.:02:57.

loved it to have been a gold medal but it is such a tough spot, when it

:02:58.:03:03.

is when one that counts. For years, you see these other guys putting an

:03:04.:03:06.

fantastic bronze and one little mistake and it is all over. I had

:03:07.:03:10.

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

Guaranteed silver in the velodrome where Calum Skinner is doing the leg

that was taken up previously by Sir Christopher Hawick. Guaranteed

:03:53.:03:55.

silver. Andy Murray had a bit of a skier but he is into the

on the Western Isles on Sunday. Tens of thousands of litres

:04:44.:04:47.

with the assessments. We know there is a lot of damage

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

:05:04.:05:06.

damage will be caused to the legs. If that happened, it could topple

:05:07.:05:11.

over and we could see a situation whereby it

:05:12.:05:13.

would have to be broken up. Local people remain bewildered

:05:14.:05:27.

by the presence of the huge rig, but some wonder if it

will be dismantled in situ Just cut it on-site,

that this unwelcome visitor is likely to occupy Dalmore beach
