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

:00:00.:00:00.

Scotland's food standards watchdog says it believes 19 people

:00:07.:00:09.

who became ill during a recent e-coli outbreak

:00:10.:00:11.

Officials said most of those were known to have

:00:12.:00:17.

Food Standards Scotland has ordered a blanket ban

:00:18.:00:22.

on all products from the makers, Errington Cheese.

:00:23.:00:26.

To make a number of confirmed cases of E. Coli has risen to 22. The team

:00:27.:00:44.

at managing the investigation say 19 of those had eaten blue cheese.

:00:45.:01:01.

15 of those people infected with E. Coli are known to have eaten the Tom

:01:02.:01:07.

Sawyer blue cheese. What they will not reveal is whether the

:01:08.:01:11.

three-year-old girl who died during this outbreak is eating blue cheese.

:01:12.:01:18.

A small number of E. Coli cases in children are being investigated in

:01:19.:01:21.

the Angus area. Initial enquiries suggest these could be linked to

:01:22.:01:24.

this national outbreak. It is not just done sire blue which has been

:01:25.:01:27.

taken off the shelves. All six types of cheese made by the company in

:01:28.:01:29.

Lanarkshire were ordered to be withdrawn from sale by the food

:01:30.:01:31.

safety agency. There is criticism that that the move is perhaps

:01:32.:01:34.

overcautious. I am surprised that all the cheese being produced by the

:01:35.:01:37.

company has been withdrawn in a very peremptory survey. The company

:01:38.:01:40.

wasn't given a chance to respond to the withdrawal notice. So the Food

:01:41.:01:47.

Standards Agency is taking a very precautionary line. The

:01:48.:01:53.

investigation team is stoutly defending its decision saying they

:01:54.:01:58.

have taken a large number of cheese samples and these have identified a

:01:59.:02:02.

number of different cheeses produced by Errington cheese containing

:02:03.:02:05.

organisms with the potential to cause serious illness. Including the

:02:06.:02:13.

E. Coli bug. As for the producers, they have stuck to their position,

:02:14.:02:17.

saying all the testing they have carried out under their cheese has

:02:18.:02:23.

found no trace of E. Coli. They say that has been confirmed to them by

:02:24.:02:26.

various microbiological experts. A mother of two who had

:02:27.:02:28.

to crowd fund her treatment after being denied a new drug

:02:29.:02:30.

for breast cancer, is now to receive the medicine on the NHS,

:02:31.:02:33.

after she wrote to the First Tonight Anne Maclean-Chang said

:02:34.:02:36.

she was delighted , Nicola Sturgeon welcomed

:02:37.:02:39.

the Grampian health board U-turn, but warned that it was impossible

:02:40.:02:44.

to provide every patient with the medication

:02:45.:02:47.

they thought they required. This from our Political

:02:48.:02:51.

Editor, Brian Taylor. Yes, it is the First Minister, guard

:02:52.:03:04.

in pink. Nicola Sturgeon joint fellow leaders to back the charity

:03:05.:03:08.

breast Cancer now. Smiling together to help combat pain and anguish.

:03:09.:03:16.

Earlier, political conflict. The daily record highlighted the reality

:03:17.:03:18.

of cancer treatment under this government. The paper told of a

:03:19.:03:24.

woman, a mother of two, denied cancer drug which might prolong her

:03:25.:03:30.

life. The drug is not routinely prescribed to appeal for individual

:03:31.:03:34.

treatment was rejected. Alerted to the case, the First Minister's

:03:35.:03:38.

offers contacted the health board yesterday. This morning, following

:03:39.:03:44.

discussions with a clinician, NHS Grampian has agreed to fund this

:03:45.:03:48.

drug. I understand she has been informed of this morning. Satellite,

:03:49.:03:58.

probably a bit of surprise after the fight I feel I have had in trying to

:03:59.:04:03.

get to this point that there seemed to be a turnaround. I believe there

:04:04.:04:08.

are over 100 women like me in Scotland who have this disease and

:04:09.:04:14.

some of them may well benefit from the drug as well. So I am very

:04:15.:04:18.

conscious that although this personally is a great decision for

:04:19.:04:23.

me, it doesn't help these other ladies who are out there who are

:04:24.:04:26.

already diagnosed were about to be diagnosed. In a statement, the

:04:27.:04:31.

health board confirmed it was there a call. They said having considered

:04:32.:04:36.

the unusual circumstances of this case the medical director has

:04:37.:04:37.

sanctioned the use of the drug in case the medical director has

:04:38.:04:42.

this instance. Wonderful news, but what about the others in a similar

:04:43.:04:47.

plight? Can she assured the chamber that cases like this will never

:04:48.:04:54.

happen again? No, I cannot and I will not give an assurance that no

:04:55.:04:58.

patient will never again find that they cannot access a drug that they

:04:59.:05:03.

think, in all sincerity, they should, because in any system that

:05:04.:05:08.

is to assess drugs there will inevitably be hard decisions that

:05:09.:05:11.

are difficult for all of us where drugs are not accessible for a

:05:12.:05:16.

particular patient. There is a review under way into how patients

:05:17.:05:20.

can access new medicines in Scotland. At the core that is an

:05:21.:05:24.

attempt to persuade drug companies to charge lower prices to the NHS

:05:25.:05:28.

but from the general to the particular. Tonight, one mother is

:05:29.:05:33.

to receive treatment she hopes will give her a long time with her

:05:34.:05:34.

family. The Scottish and UK governments have

:05:35.:05:38.

held what they've called positive talks on the UK leaving

:05:39.:05:40.

the European Union. It was a first time meeting

:05:41.:05:42.

in Downing Street for the UK's Brexit minister David Davis

:05:43.:05:45.

and his Scottish Mr Russell, also met the scottish

:05:46.:05:47.

secretary David Mundell, and warned it was inconceivable

:05:48.:05:52.

for ministers in London to negotiate devolved issues

:05:53.:05:55.

on Scotland's behalf. Our Political Correspondent,

:05:56.:05:56.

Nick Eardley, reports. Today was the first time at Michael

:05:57.:06:10.

Russell and David Davies had met in their new roles. It was about two

:06:11.:06:15.

things. A chance for the Scottish Government to set out its key

:06:16.:06:19.

interests. The one we have heard a lot about in the past fortnight is

:06:20.:06:23.

membership of the European single market. The Scottish Government

:06:24.:06:27.

believes that needs to continue, the UK Government is yet to set out its

:06:28.:06:31.

formal position. Today was also a chance for the Scottish Government

:06:32.:06:35.

and the UK Government to discuss what role of ministers in Edinburgh

:06:36.:06:41.

should have in formulating the UK's brisk set strategy. In particular,

:06:42.:06:45.

they discussed what rule ministers in Edinburgh would have when it came

:06:46.:06:50.

to devolved issues. Devolution is massively embedded in the United

:06:51.:06:54.

Kingdom. We believe in moving on from that, but it would be

:06:55.:06:57.

inconceivable that the areas of devolved responsibility were

:06:58.:07:02.

negotiated on or negotiated away by anybody else, because they are the

:07:03.:07:05.

responsibility of the Scottish Government and parliament and I

:07:06.:07:07.

think we have to make absolutely clear. We are at a very early stage

:07:08.:07:13.

in the process. We have to understand how we take forward the

:07:14.:07:19.

respective interests of Scotland and other parts of the United Kingdom

:07:20.:07:22.

and how the negotiations are going to be struck. Mr Mandela also said

:07:23.:07:28.

he is open to Scotland having a slightly different relationship with

:07:29.:07:31.

the EU than the rest of the UK post-Brexit. That is not a view

:07:32.:07:36.

shared by everybody around the UK Cabinet table. I am told there would

:07:37.:07:40.

be more information about the former ruler of Scotland in this process in

:07:41.:07:43.

the next few weeks. There will also be more toxic one forward between

:07:44.:07:48.

the UK and Scottish governments as they try to find some common cars.

:07:49.:07:51.

It is unlikely that will be simple. Plans to make emotional

:07:52.:07:53.

and psychological abuse a crime have The proposals will also see

:07:54.:07:55.

a separate offence of domestic abuse Victims' groups have

:07:56.:07:59.

welcomed the move. They say for too long the focus has

:08:00.:08:02.

been on physical violence, while mental torture

:08:03.:08:07.

can often be worse. Covering yourself up. Nobody wants

:08:08.:08:21.

to look at you. Domestic abuse takes many forms. It can go on for years,

:08:22.:08:26.

gradually gnawing away at the sense of self. It made me feel worthless.

:08:27.:08:34.

Psychologically and sexually abused, this woman's former partner was

:08:35.:08:36.

eventually jailed. She is still suffering. Depressed, isolated,

:08:37.:08:44.

anxious, always feeling you had to run things past and ask for

:08:45.:08:48.

permission. Trying to separate me from my friends who could see

:08:49.:08:55.

through him. There tends to be a lot of self blame because they have been

:08:56.:08:59.

told over and over that this is only happening because they are not doing

:09:00.:09:03.

things right. They are not behaving in a proper way, they are not

:09:04.:09:10.

cooking, cleaning properly and so that sense of personhood is eroded.

:09:11.:09:14.

It is this type of abuse the new offence is designed to tackle as the

:09:15.:09:19.

justice minister hurt when he visited a support centre. It is not

:09:20.:09:22.

just the physical aspect, it is the coercive and controlling nature of

:09:23.:09:27.

the psychological abuse associated with it. We have in existing law

:09:28.:09:31.

provisions to do with the physical aspects. What this new legislation

:09:32.:09:36.

will do is help us deal with the psychological consequences that go

:09:37.:09:39.

with domestic violence. Cases of physical domestic abuse are pretty

:09:40.:09:43.

prosecuted under existing criminal laws like breach of the peace or

:09:44.:09:47.

assault. Experts say they do not give sufficient powers to bring

:09:48.:09:52.

abusers to justice. The new law coming into place in Scotland will

:09:53.:09:55.

allow police officers to go to incidents and look at the whole

:09:56.:09:59.

story of what is happening in that relationship. It is not just about

:10:00.:10:02.

the physical assault, the sexual assault, it is about the isolation

:10:03.:10:06.

and controlling behaviour, the bad times. These can be packaged up and

:10:07.:10:13.

put to the court. We are offering protection also offering police

:10:14.:10:16.

officers or two in the war against domestic abuse. It is estimated a

:10:17.:10:20.

woman will be physically or emotionally abused at least 30 or 40

will be on her side. The UK government's

Culture Secretary, Karen Bradley, says it's for the BBC to decide

:10:31.:10:32.

whether Scotland should have an hour long TV news

programme at six o'clock. BBC Scotland's producing pilots

for a programme which could replace Reporting Scotland

for the next eleven years, the Culture Secretary said

the BBC should represent The MP for Midlothian,

Owen Thomson has called for the UK government to act urgently to allow

Aberdeenshire. Cooler where we have the frontal cloud around the east

:11:35.:11:37.

coast. Cody for Northern Ireland. Most of England and Wales have

sunshine. The heat now kicking off a number of thunderstorms. We have

disruptive weather. The torrential downpours likely to cause

England tomorrow by plane or by train. And amber be prepared one is

Shetland and the far north-east of Aberdeenshire. If you light showers

the wet weather stretching to the south-east. Some torrential

:12:27.:12:28.

downpours here. West of here it is great and deprived by the odd

:12:29.:12:32.

shower. Fresher comparator too late. Temperatures in the mid to high

:12:33.:12:37.

teens, maybe 20 Celsius. Forget the circumstances we have seen. Remember

:12:38.:12:41.

today we saw areas reaching the mid-20s. Tomorrow around 17 or 18.

fine weather in store. That fees plus sunshine is perhaps a little

more cloud building across the far north-west. The odd spot of rain.
