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

:00:00.:00:18.

The nephew of a man accused of murdering a waiter

:00:19.:00:21.

in Lanarkshire in 1998 has denied committing the crime.

:00:22.:00:24.

Andrew Coulter was giving evidence at the trial of his uncle

:00:25.:00:26.

Ronnie Coulter who's accused of stabbing Surjit

:00:27.:00:28.

Andrew Coulter admitted attacking Mr Chhokar with a home-made bat

:00:29.:00:33.

on the night he died but said he didn't murder him.

:00:34.:00:36.

From the High Court in Glasgow, Andrew Black reports.

:00:37.:00:40.

Andrew Coulter told the court that on the date of November 4, 1998,

:00:41.:00:46.

he went out looking for money to buy alcohol and broke into

:00:47.:00:49.

a flat which turned out to belong to Mr Chhokar.

:00:50.:01:09.

after his uncle forged the signature of Mr Chhokar.

:01:10.:01:11.

The partner of Mr Chhokar found out what had happened and talked

:01:12.:01:14.

Andrew Coulter told the court that later that night he,

:01:15.:01:18.

along with Ronnie Coulter and another man, travelled

:01:19.:01:24.

to the home of Mrs Brice and found Mr Chhokar coming home from work.

:01:25.:01:27.

Andrew Coulter said he shouted at Mr Chhokar, you had better

:01:28.:01:30.

Andrew Coulter said at this stage Mr Chhokar swung a bottle

:01:31.:01:33.

Mr Coulter said he then swung a home-made bat at Mr Chhokar

:01:34.:01:40.

Andrew Coulter said then his knee gave way and it

:01:41.:01:43.

He said he and David Montgomerie left the scene and Ronnie Coulter

:01:44.:01:48.

The prosecutor asked Andrew Coulter if he had stabbed Mr Chhokar,

:01:49.:01:52.

The court also heard that Andrew Coulter, now 35,

:01:53.:01:59.

stabbed and killed a man called Patrick Kelly in 1999 and was

:02:00.:02:03.

Before beginning his evidence the judge told Mr Coulter he did not

:02:04.:02:10.

have to answer any questions which might incriminate him

:02:11.:02:13.

Ronnie Coulter has been tried for a second time for the murder,

Scotland's private sector firms saw their output

:02:20.:02:28.

That's according to a survey of 600 of them.

:02:29.:02:33.

It's one of many indicators of how the economy is responding

:02:34.:02:35.

to the vote for Britain to leave the European Union.

:02:36.:02:38.

Here's our business and economy editor, Douglas Fraser.

:02:39.:02:55.

Scotland's economy has stalled for while. The vote to leave the

:02:56.:03:04.

European Union did not help. Looking across the UK at CROWD: Come on,

elsewhere a different story. There is more soft that is where the

analysis the highest proportion working for themselves is in Orkney

and in Maine and rural areas. Is that a good thing? Some people can

home-grown businesses can take other people on. But it means that the --

A five-year-old boy has died after being hit by a van

:05:32.:05:34.

The accident happened in Dalness Street in the Shettleston

:05:35.:05:38.

area of the city, just after three o'clock this afternoon.

:05:39.:05:41.

The boy, a pupil at St Paul's Primary School,

was taken to hospital with serious injuries where he died

The first turbine which will form part of the world's largest tidal

:05:51.:05:52.

The structure is to be installed in the Pentland Firth.

Rangers say their supporters were "subjected to a sickening

and shameful display of outright sectarian hatred" during Saturday's

A supporters group wants the club to ban Celtic fans

:06:10.:06:15.

Off-field incidents have again over-shadowed matters on the park.

:06:16.:06:18.

Here's our football reporter Alasdair Lamont.

:06:19.:06:25.

Saturday's game has thrown up several issues. Rangers have

:06:26.:06:31.

produced a statement following a demand from a supporters groups that

:06:32.:06:36.

they ban Celtic fans. The statement says...

:06:37.:06:43.

This relates to a banner held up by Celtic supporters referring to, and

:06:44.:06:53.

a direct quote, scum. Pictures have been published in newspapers of

:06:54.:06:57.

effigies of Rangers supporters being hanged. Celtic say they will not

become involved in a tit-for-tat spats but will resolve all issues in

a proper and professional manner. They are also clearing up damage

police say they are investigating and saying that the overwhelming

Look at these beautiful colours, the contrast between the sky and the

crop below. Tonight we will see rain and heavy pulses of it.

how tomorrow's stars, with a band of rain is lying across the western
