Judges have turned down a bid by the owners of the News

:00:08.:00:11.

of the World to get a retrial of the former MSP Tommy

:00:12.:00:14.

They've also ruled that the award of two hundred thousand

:00:15.:00:19.

pounds to Mr Sheridan back in 2006, will stand.

:00:20.:00:22.

In August 2006 Tommy Sheridan with his wife at his side

:00:23.:00:28.

merged from a court room in Edinburgh, victorious.

:00:29.:00:33.

He denied lurid stories about his sex life published

:00:34.:00:35.

in the News of the World and sued the newspaper group for defamation.

:00:36.:00:41.

Likening it to a David and Goliath battle to protect his reputation.

:00:42.:00:49.

What we have done in the last five weeks is the equivalent of regret

:00:50.:00:55.

What we have done in the last five weeks is the equivalent of Gretna

:00:56.:00:58.

taking on Real Madrid, in the Bernabeu, and beating them

:00:59.:01:03.

on penalty, that is what we have done.

:01:04.:01:05.

These were the headlines which prompted that case.

:01:06.:01:12.

Allegations that Mr Sheridan had adulterous relationships

:01:13.:01:14.

Four years later Mr Sheridan was back in court, this time

:01:15.:01:19.

the High Court in Glasgow, where he was convicted of lying,

:01:20.:01:23.

during that defamation case, and sentenced

:01:24.:01:25.

The real reason why he has been imprisoned today, is because he has

:01:26.:01:29.

fought injustice, inequality, with every beat of his heart.

:01:30.:01:45.

Now that Mr Sheridan was a convicted perjurer News Group argued

:01:46.:01:47.

the verdict should be set aside, along with the ?200,000 he had

:01:48.:01:51.

Three Court of Session judges rejected that today,

:01:52.:01:55.

saying for example the jury in the defamation case were entitled

:01:56.:02:04.

respects but that he was not someone who drank champagne,

:02:05.:02:09.

participated in orgies and indulged in kinky sex.

:02:10.:02:11.

Tommy Sheridan the long time campaigner was firmly focussed

:02:12.:02:14.

on family matters today, with his father recovering

:02:15.:02:16.

The News of the World at the centre of case has of course been closed,

:02:17.:02:38.

the newspaper group today expressed their disappointment

:02:39.:02:40.

in the ruling and said they are considering their options.

:02:41.:02:42.

They will have to reflect on the view of the judges that

:02:43.:02:46.

a court should be slow to interfere with jurry's decision,

:02:47.:02:48.

meanwhile the Sheridans await payment of the damages awarded

:02:49.:02:50.

Efforts could be made this weekend to refloat the stricken oil rig,

:02:51.:02:58.

which ran aground on the west coast of Lewis almost a fortnight ago.

:02:59.:03:02.

Today salvage experts continued to assess the damage

:03:03.:03:06.

and carry out necessary repairs, in order to pull the rig

:03:07.:03:09.

Six teenagers have been arrested in connection with an alleged

:03:10.:03:14.

It comes after unconfirmed reports that they found a baby's

:03:15.:03:21.

remains in a bag at a building which stores medical artefacts

:03:22.:03:23.

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde has confirmed a secure

:03:29.:03:35.
