A child, who was receiving treatment during an outbreak
of the e-coli 0157 bug in South Lanarkshire has died.
The child was among 20 confirmed cases of infection,
which has been linked to a local cheese manufacturer.
Our social affairs correspondent Reevel Alderson has the details.
We do not have any details of the child who has died, not even whether
he or she died in a local hospital or at home and we do not know
whether he or she was one of the 11 people out of their outbreak of 20
who received hospital treatment. Health protection Scotland, which
was investigating, says all the cases in this out sick were
identified in the first couple of weeks in July and since then there
are no new cases and it has concluded its investigation as a
result and is compiling a report to be produced in the next six months
or so but it did say epidemiological investigations identified a blue
cheese as the most likely cause. It is made from unpasteurised Cal's
milk on a farm near South Lanarkshire, the company that makes
it has said nothing today but last month it issued a very strong
rebuttal of all the claims made against it on its website. Amongst
these claims were the fact that all of their cheeses have been tested
for e-coli and found negative. The company says it cannot understand
why it has been implicated in this way and says it has concluded that
out because more likely to have been caused by something with a shorter
shelf life than its cheese, or not by a food at all.
The First Minister has offered to help build a "coalition"
with like-minded Ministers in the UK Government who want to preserve
links with the European Union, especially the single

This from our political editor Brian Taylor.
Making her mark, Nicola Sturgeon visits Alexander Dennis
in Falkirk whose buses and coaches sell globally.
She sees the European single market as vital to protect
She would prefer Scotland to stay in the EU but is willing to preserve
as much as possible through UK negotiations including full
Can there be a coalition across the UK that gets
the UK Government into a more sensible position?
Theresa May, I don't know but she was in the Remain side,
presumably she knows the real risks of removal from the single market.
Let's try getting the UK not into the best position because that
in my view would be continued ownership of the EU but let's get
the UK as a whole into the least worst position, staying
The Prime Minister faces worldwide warnings.
Japan says accessing the single market is important
The UK Government says it is open to ideas
Of course the First Minister, responsible for devolved issues
in Scotland, has a very, very important role in formulating
that position but there is not a veto in relation to that because,
of course, we have Scotland as two governments in terms of formulating
the position and speaking for Scotland as a whole.
Nicola Sturgeon sees three elements to this debate.
She wants to contribute to UK Brexit talks.
She wants separately to protect Scottish interests
While every Scottish local authority area voted to remain
in the European Union, not every region produced
Moray voted only narrowly to stay, producing the closest referendum

Moray, the land of whisky, farming and fishing,
is now also famed for becoming Scotland's most divided
In the EU referendum a little over half of Moray voters voted to
remain, with the Leave campaigning losing by only 122 votes.
In spite of the mood music at this pensioners keep fit class
there are still no regrets about breaking up with Brussels.
I think they are a corrupt, self-serving, dishonest,
Yet next door the position and pace is different.
We live in a global world, and we need to live as a global
citizen and to cut yourself off as a little island is a disaster.
Most of this group wanted to remain but the future is even more unclear
for those who migrated to Moray for a better way of life.
It is a little worrying because we don't know what to do,
are we going back home, or are we continuing our lives here?
-- Most of the support for the local Leave campaign was found
in the coastal communities of the area and the demise
of the local fishing industry was a key factor in that decision.
This fisherman, Douglas Innis, is one of many from his industry
who voted to leave, believing the decision will bring some
If we were in charge of more that it would be a growth industry.
Before the EU, it wasn't, in the EU now it is.
The people of Moray may remain split but they share the same interest
in finding out exactly what Brexit will bring.

Mother nature is being generous with the warm weather at the moment. Some
beautiful sunsets tonight. This captured by one of our weather
watchers from the north-east. Tonight we will see rather misty
conditions in the Northwest. There are humid. -- very humid.
Predominantly cloudy starting off away from the north-east corner.
Look at these temperatures. We would love to see these in the middle of

south-western coastal areas, driving in from the Irish Sea coast. More
sunshine across northern areas, particularly the Northwest and
Western Isles eventually. Over the UK, damp conditions from Northern
Ireland, fairly cloudy across the UK but under that it will be hot for
the time of year. 26 Celsius possibly towards the South East.
We're looking at a potential 24-25 for inland parts of Aberdeenshire.
