A 32-year-old shop owner from Clydebank is facing a life

:00:08.:00:10.

sentence, after he admitted murdering the teenager

:00:11.:00:12.

The 15-year-old suffered more than 140 separate

:00:13.:00:17.

She'd stopped off at the deli to buy her breakfast,

:00:18.:00:22.

Paige Doherty was one month shy of her 16th birthday.

:00:23.:00:29.

She lived with her family in Clydebank and had a part-time

:00:30.:00:33.

On Saturday, 19th March, she was on her way

:00:34.:00:39.

there when she went into the Delicious Deli

:00:40.:00:41.

Ten minutes later she was dead, stabbed more than 60 times.

:00:42.:00:48.

Friends and family raised the alarm that night when she had

:00:49.:00:50.

An intense police investigation got under way with huge support

:00:51.:00:56.

Her badly injured body was discovered two days later,

:00:57.:01:02.

yards from the busy Great Western Road.

:01:03.:01:06.

A passer-by had seen legs protruding from the undergrowth.

:01:07.:01:09.

Two days after that John Leathem was arrested.

:01:10.:01:13.

CCTV pictures shown in court today told the story of how he had tried

:01:14.:01:16.

Minutes after the murder he pulled down the shutters on his business

:01:17.:01:21.

and was seen running in and out of neighbouring shops.

:01:22.:01:25.

He bought antibacterial wipes, bin bags and bleach.

:01:26.:01:29.

Further footage saw him driving away from the premises,

:01:30.:01:31.

the lifeless body of the teenager stashed in the car boot.

:01:32.:01:36.

Then the court heard he hid the body in his garden shed

:01:37.:01:38.

The next day he took his wife and baby girl on a family outing to

:01:39.:01:45.

Today Ian Duguid, QC for the defence, told the court

:01:46.:01:56.

John Leathem was just an ordinary, normal person.

:01:57.:01:58.

John Leathem's account of what had happened was that the pair had gone

:01:59.:02:01.

into the back office to talk about the prospect

:02:02.:02:03.

When he did not instantly offer her the job he said

:02:04.:02:07.

Paige threatened to tell people he had touched her.

:02:08.:02:09.

They both stood up, he grabbed a knife.

:02:10.:02:11.

Forensic evidence shows the teenager suffered over 140

:02:12.:02:14.

Paige's family say they will never get over what happened.

:02:15.:02:23.

Her grandmother described her as an all-round good girl,

:02:24.:02:26.

The judge told John Leathem it had been a savage,

:02:27.:02:30.

She deferred sentence until next month.

:02:31.:02:35.

Sally McNair, Reporting Scotland, Glasgow.

:02:36.:02:39.

A child, who was receiving treatment during an outbreak

:02:40.:02:41.

of the e-coli 0157 bug in South Lanarkshire has died.

:02:42.:02:45.

The child was among 20 confirmed cases of infection,

:02:46.:02:49.

which has been linked to a local cheese manufacturer.

:02:50.:02:52.

Our social affairs correspondent Reevel Alderson has the details.

:02:53.:03:01.

We do not have any details of the child who has died, not even whether

:03:02.:03:08.

he or she died in a local hospital or at home and we do not know

:03:09.:03:13.

whether he or she was one of the 11 people out of their outbreak of 20

:03:14.:03:18.

who received hospital treatment. Health protection Scotland, which

:03:19.:03:20.

was investigating, says all the cases in this out sick were

:03:21.:03:25.

identified in the first couple of weeks in July and since then there

:03:26.:03:31.

are no new cases and it has concluded its investigation as a

:03:32.:03:34.

result and is compiling a report to be produced in the next six months

:03:35.:03:42.

or so but it did say epidemiological investigations identified a blue

:03:43.:03:46.

cheese as the most likely cause. It is made from unpasteurised Cal's

:03:47.:03:55.

milk on a farm near South Lanarkshire, the company that makes

:03:56.:03:58.

it has said nothing today but last month it issued a very strong

:03:59.:04:02.

rebuttal of all the claims made against it on its website. Amongst

:04:03.:04:06.

these claims were the fact that all of their cheeses have been tested

:04:07.:04:14.

for e-coli and found negative. The company says it cannot understand

:04:15.:04:18.

why it has been implicated in this way and says it has concluded that

:04:19.:04:22.

out because more likely to have been caused by something with a shorter

:04:23.:04:27.

shelf life than its cheese, or not by a food at all.

:04:28.:04:29.

The First Minister has offered to help build a "coalition"

:04:30.:04:32.

with like-minded Ministers in the UK Government who want to preserve

:04:33.:04:34.

links with the European Union, especially the single

:04:35.:04:36.

Nicola Sturgeon told BBC Scotland she was ready to work with those

:04:37.:04:43.

This from our political editor Brian Taylor.

:04:44.:04:45.

Making her mark, Nicola Sturgeon visits Alexander Dennis

:04:46.:04:49.

in Falkirk whose buses and coaches sell globally.

:04:50.:04:50.

She sees the European single market as vital to protect

:04:51.:04:53.

She would prefer Scotland to stay in the EU but is willing to preserve

:04:54.:05:00.

as much as possible through UK negotiations including full

:05:01.:05:02.

Can there be a coalition across the UK that gets

:05:03.:05:11.

the UK Government into a more sensible position?

:05:12.:05:13.

Theresa May, I don't know but she was in the Remain side,

:05:14.:05:22.

presumably she knows the real risks of removal from the single market.

:05:23.:05:25.

Let's try getting the UK not into the best position because that

:05:26.:05:27.

in my view would be continued ownership of the EU but let's get

:05:28.:05:31.

the UK as a whole into the least worst position, staying

:05:32.:05:33.

The Prime Minister faces worldwide warnings.

:05:34.:05:39.

Japan says accessing the single market is important

:05:40.:05:41.

The UK Government says it is open to ideas

:05:42.:05:44.

Of course the First Minister, responsible for devolved issues

:05:45.:05:54.

in Scotland, has a very, very important role in formulating

:05:55.:06:02.

that position but there is not a veto in relation to that because,

:06:03.:06:05.

of course, we have Scotland as two governments in terms of formulating

:06:06.:06:08.

the position and speaking for Scotland as a whole.

:06:09.:06:16.

Nicola Sturgeon sees three elements to this debate.

:06:17.:06:23.

She wants to contribute to UK Brexit talks.

:06:24.:06:25.

She wants separately to protect Scottish interests

:06:26.:06:26.

While every Scottish local authority area voted to remain

:06:27.:06:36.

in the European Union, not every region produced

:06:37.:06:38.

Moray voted only narrowly to stay, producing the closest referendum

:06:39.:06:51.

Jackie O'Brien's been back there to find out if voters

:06:52.:06:54.

Moray, the land of whisky, farming and fishing,

:06:55.:06:59.

is now also famed for becoming Scotland's most divided

:07:00.:07:01.

In the EU referendum a little over half of Moray voters voted to

:07:02.:07:09.

remain, with the Leave campaigning losing by only 122 votes.

:07:10.:07:17.

In spite of the mood music at this pensioners keep fit class

:07:18.:07:20.

there are still no regrets about breaking up with Brussels.

:07:21.:07:25.

I think they are a corrupt, self-serving, dishonest,

:07:26.:07:28.

Yet next door the position and pace is different.

:07:29.:07:40.

We live in a global world, and we need to live as a global

:07:41.:07:43.

citizen and to cut yourself off as a little island is a disaster.

:07:44.:07:54.

Most of this group wanted to remain but the future is even more unclear

:07:55.:07:57.

for those who migrated to Moray for a better way of life.

:07:58.:08:00.

It is a little worrying because we don't know what to do,

:08:01.:08:03.

are we going back home, or are we continuing our lives here?

:08:04.:08:10.

-- Most of the support for the local Leave campaign was found

:08:11.:08:20.

in the coastal communities of the area and the demise

:08:21.:08:23.

of the local fishing industry was a key factor in that decision.

:08:24.:08:25.

This fisherman, Douglas Innis, is one of many from his industry

:08:26.:08:28.

who voted to leave, believing the decision will bring some

:08:29.:08:30.

If we were in charge of more that it would be a growth industry.

:08:31.:08:37.

Before the EU, it wasn't, in the EU now it is.

:08:38.:08:43.

The people of Moray may remain split but they share the same interest

:08:44.:08:52.

in finding out exactly what Brexit will bring.

:08:53.:08:53.

Jackie O'Brien, Reporting Scotland, Moray.

:08:54.:09:00.

Now, there are just two days until the opening ceremony

:09:01.:09:02.

There are 33 Scots in the British team, all making their final

:09:03.:09:09.

Amongst them, in athletics, two women at very different stages

:09:10.:09:12.

The countdown is on for the British Paralympians at

:09:13.:09:17.

Long jumper Stef Reid had her foot amputated as a 16-year-old

:09:18.:09:28.

after a boating accident in Canada, where she grew up.

:09:29.:09:31.

A Scot through her father, she is keen to add to her

:09:32.:09:33.

So far a bronze from Beijing and silver in London.

:09:34.:09:37.

There is a huge part of me that just wants to finish off

:09:38.:09:40.

But actually my very first medal, the bronze, I actually

:09:41.:09:44.

I had to come to terms with it and I kind of realised that, yes,

:09:45.:09:49.

the medal is awesome, but the real prize is the journey

:09:50.:09:52.

That is not held in the medal, that is held in me.

:09:53.:10:00.

Reid admits it has been a challenge for her coach and her support team

:10:01.:10:05.

How do you keep someone fit who has an artificial leg and a bad back

:10:06.:10:12.

and can't do any of the standard things jumpers and sprinters

:10:13.:10:15.

I'm going into these Games very aware of how grateful I am

:10:16.:10:21.

To the youngster in the team making her debut.

:10:22.:10:26.

16-year-old Maria Lyle from Dunbar has cerebral palsy.

:10:27.:10:28.

She has medalled at world level and said that athletics has

:10:29.:10:32.

I wasn't very good at a lot of things!

:10:33.:10:39.

So sport gives me a lot to do and with my condition,

:10:40.:10:42.

it helps with my movement and gives you a purpose,

:10:43.:10:44.

I think any medal would be great, because not every person has

:10:45.:10:55.

got a Paralympic medal, so regardless of the colour, I would

:10:56.:10:58.

The Games begin on Wednesday night and the athletics begin

:10:59.:11:04.

Mother nature is being generous with the warm weather at the moment. Some

:11:05.:11:26.

beautiful sunsets tonight. This captured by one of our weather

:11:27.:11:29.

watchers from the north-east. Tonight we will see rather misty

:11:30.:11:38.

conditions in the Northwest. There are humid. -- very humid.

:11:39.:11:45.

Predominantly cloudy starting off away from the north-east corner.

:11:46.:11:53.

Look at these temperatures. We would love to see these in the middle of

:11:54.:12:00.

the day. Sunny spells in the north-east. Rain initially of

:12:01.:12:14.

Shetland but it will clear. The murky conditions are combined to

:12:15.:12:17.

south-western coastal areas, driving in from the Irish Sea coast. More

:12:18.:12:26.

sunshine across northern areas, particularly the Northwest and

:12:27.:12:30.

Western Isles eventually. Over the UK, damp conditions from Northern

:12:31.:12:34.

Ireland, fairly cloudy across the UK but under that it will be hot for

:12:35.:12:39.

the time of year. 26 Celsius possibly towards the South East.

:12:40.:12:46.

We're looking at a potential 24-25 for inland parts of Aberdeenshire.

:12:47.:12:56.

The rest of the afternoon, rather wet in the south-west, another band

:12:57.:13:01.

of patchy rain and drizzle feeding him across the South as we head

:13:02.:13:05.

through tomorrow evening. Courtesy of this weather front pushing

:13:06.:13:12.

northwards during Wednesday. Wednesday improves, starting cloudy

:13:13.:13:17.

but brighter conditions feeding in and the temperatures are still warm.

:13:18.:13:19.

Our next update is during Breakfast at 6.25 tomorrow morning.

:13:20.:13:24.

But, from everyone on the late team here in Glasgow and around
