The way schools in Scotland are run could be set

:00:18.:00:21.

The Scottish Government says it wants to give as much power

:00:22.:00:25.

as possible to individual schools, and headteachers.

:00:26.:00:27.

It means local authorities are likely to have far less control.

:00:28.:00:31.

The Education Secretary John Swinney launched the review this afternoon.

:00:32.:00:37.

Our guiding principle for the way schools is run are simple.

:00:38.:00:39.

Decisions should be taken at school level.

:00:40.:00:41.

That will be the presumption and we will place it

:00:42.:00:44.

We want to empower teaches to make the best decisions for

:00:45.:00:50.

There will be new educational regions operating above

:00:51.:01:00.

Would the cabinet Secretary accept this looks like

:01:01.:01:05.

Let's talk about the things which John Swinney

:01:06.:01:20.

He said there will be no moves to selective education or

:01:21.:01:24.

grammar schools or formally allowing schools to opt out of local

:01:25.:01:26.

But don't be put off by the moderate language of John

:01:27.:01:30.

Swinney, we could be talking about radical changes.

:01:31.:01:32.

Especially when it comes to the role of councils.

:01:33.:01:36.

The Scottish government would see this

:01:37.:01:40.

as a form of devolution to schools and say that by empowering teachers

:01:41.:01:45.

they're more likely to do what is best for the school and raise

:01:46.:01:48.

What is right for one school may not be right for a school

:01:49.:01:52.

But there is a question of the regional education

:01:53.:02:00.

boards to encourage schools in different areas to

:02:01.:02:02.

The question is what role is left for local authorities?

:02:03.:02:15.

The debate talking about the priorities of the school budget and

:02:16.:02:21.

the curriculum. The main question will be how schools remain

:02:22.:02:25.

accountable to parents and the wider communities they serve.

:02:26.:02:46.

A man has told a court that his uncle confessed

:02:47.:02:48.

to the stabbing in 1998 of restauraunt worker

:02:49.:02:50.

Andrew Coulter said Ronnie Coulter told him what he had done

:02:51.:02:54.

Andrew Black reports from the High Court in Glasgow.

:02:55.:03:01.

He said he and his uncle had been reviled caching of jabber check

:03:02.:03:12.

belonging to -- agile check. Mr Chokkar Belonging to. -- giro

:03:13.:03:28.

cheque. He said that after his uncle is gone to see Mr Chokkar his uncle

:03:29.:03:36.

was at his flat and he appeared shaken. He was asked if he had said

:03:37.:03:44.

anything he said he had stabbed Mr Chokkar. Donald finally put two and

:03:45.:03:50.

a cult that he had killed Mr Chokkar Chokkar. Donald finally put two and

:03:51.:03:59.

and had gone to see with the baseball bat. Ronnie Coulter denied

:04:00.:04:06.

that he had and said they had he would have confessed to it.

:04:07.:04:12.

The disciplinary hearing against nurse Pauline Cafferkey

:04:13.:04:17.

who survived Ebola has ruled she did not act

:04:18.:04:20.

'dishonestly' by allowing her temperature to be mis-recorded

:04:21.:04:21.

during screening at Heathrow airport.

:04:22.:04:23.

But the 40 year-old nurse still faces charges of misconduct

:04:24.:04:25.

Pauline Cafferkey arrived back home and the screening room was described

:04:26.:04:43.

Although her temperature was enough to warrant medical

:04:44.:04:46.

attention, somebody in her team has had written it as being 37 degrees.

:04:47.:04:51.

After that she said she was feeling unwell and had taken paracetamol.

:04:52.:04:57.

But when she went back to the screening area,

:04:58.:04:59.

a doctor cleared her to return home to Scotland.

:05:00.:05:04.

Now, the panel here, the conduct hearing has

:05:05.:05:10.

agreed she didn't act dishonestly in not declaring her attempt.

:05:11.:05:27.

But representatives argued she should be

:05:28.:05:28.

found guilty of misconduct, because she did put

:05:29.:05:30.

Her lawyer said she should have been treated as a patient from the moment

:05:31.:05:36.

she arrived back at Heathrow and it was up

:05:37.:05:38.

to officials to make sure the

:05:39.:05:40.

temperature checks were done properly.

:05:41.:05:41.

She said despite the chaos of everything that was going on, she

:05:42.:05:55.

She said despite the chaos going on Pauline Cafferkey did speak to

:05:56.:06:03.

medical staff and said she was feeling unwell.

:06:04.:06:07.

She said her unblemished record demonstrates her

:06:08.:06:09.

judgment was impaired because of the symptoms of Ebola.

:06:10.:06:11.

But the panel have retired to consider the

:06:12.:06:13.

arguments made by both sides and the hearing

:06:14.:06:15.

The SNP will chair a newly created international trade

:06:16.:06:21.

committee at Westminster, a party spokeswoman has confirmed.

:06:22.:06:26.

The Prime Minister Theresa May created the new department,

:06:27.:06:34.

led by Liam Fox, looking at the implications for business

:06:35.:06:36.

Scotland is ahead of the rest of the UK in tackling

:06:37.:06:41.

greenhouse gas emissions, according to a new report from

:06:42.:06:44.

But it says the reductions were largely down to the relatively

:06:45.:06:47.

warm weather last winter, and adds that in some areas,

:06:48.:06:50.

schemes are "largely failing to deliver."

:06:51.:06:51.

Here's our environment correspondent Kevin Keane.

:06:52.:07:09.

They run on hydrogen but these buses are four times more expensive than

:07:10.:07:15.

conventional one. Aberdeen has the biggest fleet of these buses in

:07:16.:07:22.

Scotland but without them the fleet would not be viable. As long as

:07:23.:07:33.

you're planning for a traffic light I can slow the bus down. This is one

:07:34.:07:46.

way of tackling emissions from transport but with just ten buses it

:07:47.:07:51.

is a small scale to a big problem. The report says there has been a

:07:52.:07:55.

good progress in deploying renewable energy but says it is largely

:07:56.:08:01.

unchanged in 1990 and in agriculture emissions reductions have been slow

:08:02.:08:06.

but the reduction in the light of new forms planted.

:08:07.:08:11.

We are aiming at cutting our emissions in the UK by 80% by 2050

:08:12.:08:14.

and the Scottish Government has taken this seriously in making its

:08:15.:08:17.

What we have got to do is concentrate particularly on

:08:18.:08:20.

They run on hydrogen but these buses are four

:08:21.:08:24.

transport, where we do have to reduce our emissions.

:08:25.:08:26.

Hydrogen transport is good for vehicle

:08:27.:08:27.

emissions, but one problem is getting people out of their cars and

:08:28.:08:30.

on to buses like this in the first place.

:08:31.:08:36.

So ministers are being urged in the report to better promote

:08:37.:08:39.

It is a global challenge and we are taking

:08:40.:08:43.

I'm pleased the fact that we are leading the rest

:08:44.:08:47.

of the UK has been recognised, but it makes it tough to

:08:48.:08:50.

Scotland is doing better than the rest of the UK in

:08:51.:08:56.

tackling climate change, but ministers acknowledge more needs to

:08:57.:08:58.

be done and a climate change plan will be published over the winter.

:08:59.:09:10.

A five-year-old boy who died after he was knocked down by a van

:09:11.:09:13.

in the Shettleston area of Glasgow yesterday has been named.

:09:14.:09:16.

He was Lennon Toland, who lived in Tollcross.

:09:17.:09:21.

He was taken to the Queen Elizabeth University hospital when he died a

:09:22.:09:25.

short time later. The 62-year-old driver

:09:26.:09:28.

of the transit van was not injured. The squeeze on Holyrood's budget

:09:29.:09:31.

is likely to dominate the council elections next May,

:09:32.:09:33.

as the amount councillors have to spend could be cut

:09:34.:09:35.

by as much as ?1 billion over That's according to a report

:09:36.:09:38.

by the Fraser of Allander Institute The report warns that with health

:09:39.:09:42.

and other priorities taking a larger share of the money available,

:09:43.:09:46.

other Scottish Government I think the warnings are partly for

:09:47.:10:01.

the Chancellor who could and austerity and has said he wants to

:10:02.:10:05.

reset UK economic policy and they should do that in a way that

:10:06.:10:08.

supports rather than undermines economy and in terms of the Scottish

:10:09.:10:13.

Government will have new powers which will be in addition to the

:10:14.:10:18.

existing powers and use in a balanced way. It will protect

:10:19.:10:24.

household budgets. The onus is on the Scottish bone meant to make sure

:10:25.:10:28.

they have measures. -- Scottish Government. They need to make sure

:10:29.:10:34.

that we are not facing severe cuts to phrase about the Institute are

:10:35.:10:36.

talking about. Football and Celtic endured

:10:37.:10:40.

their worst ever European defeat as they lost 7-0 to a rampant

:10:41.:10:42.

Barcelona in their opening group Lionel Messi Got Barcelona off the

:10:43.:10:53.

mark manner. Celtic have the chance to level and the penalty was saved.

:10:54.:10:59.

Two minutes later Lionel Messi punish Celtic with a second goal. In

:11:00.:11:05.

the second half there was a goal from this free kick for Barcelona

:11:06.:11:09.

and the captain hammered Bali. Lionel Messi Slid the ball home to

Now the weather outlook for tonight and tomorrow.

Unfortunately the sun was not out for most of us today. It was a
