Nurse Pauline Cafferkey is facing charges that she concealed the fact

:00:09.:00:12.

that she had a high temperature when she returned to the UK

:00:13.:00:15.

from working with Ebola patients in Sierra Leone.

:00:16.:00:17.

Our Social Affairs Correspondent, Reevel Alderson has been

:00:18.:00:19.

The background to this is that Pauline Cafferkey, in nurse from

:00:20.:00:31.

Rutherglen in south Lanarkshire was working in Sierra Leone treating

:00:32.:00:35.

patients of the Ebola virus outbreak. She returned to the UK in

:00:36.:00:42.

September 2014 and soon afterwards suffered symptoms of a bowler. She

:00:43.:00:46.

was treated and specialist isolation conditions in London. She

:00:47.:00:51.

subsequently had a relapse of the able condition but is well at the

:00:52.:00:56.

moment. In March 2015 she appeared before the nursing and midwifery

:00:57.:01:00.

Council which was considering whether she could continue to

:01:01.:01:03.

practice as a nurse while they were considering her case. That case

:01:04.:01:08.

centred on suggestions that when she returned to the UK she had obscured

:01:09.:01:12.

from public-health officials at Heathrow Airport the fact she had

:01:13.:01:16.

raised temperature, one of the symptoms of Ebola, and she had taken

:01:17.:01:19.

paracetamol to bring her temperature down. The nursing and midwifery

:01:20.:01:25.

Council put details today of the charges against Pauline Cafferkey

:01:26.:01:29.

onto its website. They apologise for doing so because they admit they

:01:30.:01:33.

have received new information from Pauline Cafferkey which will be put

:01:34.:01:37.

before a hearing of a panel of the nursing and midwifery Council in

London in September. Pauline Cafferkey said in a statement that

:01:42.:01:44.

she hoped after the case has been considered by the panel this matter

:02:38.:02:41.

she can compete in this race with plenty of confidence. She has had so

much confidence that she has to be able to harness taking into this.

defined Scotland's urban landscape. The plan in North Lanarkshire

:04:29.:04:34.

is very different. The plan isn't for massive

new housing estates, instead the council is talking about maybe

:04:37.:04:40.

building ten new houses in one place and 15 somewhere else,

trams fiasco could lead to criminal prosecutions,

according to the judge Lord Hardie says the inquiry has no
