in principle with the RMT union to end a dispute over driver

a guarantee that a conductor will be kept as a second member of staff

the door is on trains. Do you need a guard or can the driver to

:00:32.:00:36.

everything themselves? The RMT union said having a second member of staff

:00:37.:00:42.

on the train was vital for passenger safety. ScotRail says the deal means

:00:43.:00:47.

that second person will be there. It should mean an end for the

industrial action which disrupted some rail services earlier in the

plans and say the officials will be reporting to the RMT National

likely to mean a company wide ballot until the dispute can be formally

that they have one. -- won. Edinburgh airport says it has

:01:25.:01:30.

received thousands of responses to its public consultation

:01:31.:01:33.

on changing flight paths. The first phase ends today,

a week later than planned after the airport was forced

to apologise after losing Scotland's busiest airport is

getting even more popular. Passenger numbers are up 12% on this time last

:01:56.:02:01.

club say they want to hear. Certainly, the airport expansion

:02:02.:02:04.

will raise the profile of the area and raise the profile of West

:02:05.:02:08.

Lothian. The more people and more awareness we can make of our golf

club and others in the area, can only be good. To grow, Edinburgh

Airport wants to attract more flights in, but it also wants to

:02:18.:02:22.

increase the frequency of outbound flights to one per minute. It wants

to expand the flight path is it uses. This consultation gave the

public it say on proposed envelopes of the space that could be utilised.

:02:33.:02:40.

In some parts of the countryside, like blackness, local residents say

:02:41.:02:44.

the tranquillity has already disappeared. We are fighting against

:02:45.:02:49.

a giant and we are a small group of people. Because of the rule area,

:02:50.:02:54.

they are not many people who live here. It is like David and Goliath.

One is every two minutes the few thousand feet above you rattling in

programme has had a bumpy ride. It cancelled flight path trial and an

:03:22.:03:25.

omission of lost data. The airport 's ABI listening. We have the chance

:03:26.:03:35.

to redesign the sky. We can look to alleviate the problems that are

:03:36.:03:39.

there already through a variety of things, modernising the Ritz or

:03:50.:03:55.

A small number of children from the Angus area have been

:03:56.:03:58.

quarantined in hospital as investigations continue

:03:59.:03:59.

NHS Tayside says they're being treated

:04:00.:04:03.

within a dedicated area of Ninewells hospital in Dundee.

:04:04.:04:05.

Some of the children are confirmed to have the infection while others

:04:06.:04:07.

The leader of the Scottish Liberal Democrats, Willie Rennie,

:04:08.:04:13.

has accused the SNP and the Conservatives

:04:14.:04:17.

of campaigning on "fear, not hope" in his speech

:04:18.:04:19.

Earlier, I spoke to our political correspondent David Porter

:04:20.:04:22.

in Brighton, and put it to him that they're not the party of government

:04:23.:04:26.

No, they are not. That is part of the reason the language we are

:04:27.:04:40.

hearing this evening. He is very keen like other Liberal Democrats to

:04:41.:04:45.

get people to hear his views. With the UK general election and the

:04:46.:04:49.

general election. It is fair to say that the Liberal Democrats are

:04:50.:04:51.

feeling marginalised at the moment. feeling marginalised at the moment.

:04:52.:04:55.

-- Scottish parliament elections. The only have one MSP at -- five MSP

:04:56.:05:03.

's and one MP at Westminster. It will be out looking and optimistic,

:05:04.:05:09.

Willie Rennie says. He is aware that the only show in town at the moment

:05:10.:05:13.

is Brexit and the reaction to that, hence the comments he has been

:05:14.:05:19.

making today. He has accused both the SNP and the Tories of trying to

:05:20.:05:23.

make party political advantage of that EU referendum almost three

:05:24.:05:31.

months ago now. It is a dismal scene that has been visited upon us by the

:05:32.:05:38.

Conservatives and the SNP. Stalled investment, uncertain future for EU

:05:39.:05:44.

citizens, divided families, economic instability, tensions between the

:05:45.:05:49.

nations of the UK. This is the work of the terrible twins of divisive

:05:50.:05:56.

politics. I believe the former leader Lord Ashdown has been

:05:57.:06:00.

thinking out loud today Koziello yes, he has. Three months on from

:06:01.:06:05.

that EU referendum he has been thinking about what it means for

:06:06.:06:08.

Scotland and whether Scotland remains part of the UK. He believes

:06:09.:06:14.

the monks on the prospect of the union, are less dire than directly

:06:15.:06:21.

after that referendum. He believes that any moves for a second

:06:22.:06:24.

independence referendum, Nicola Sturgeon, in his words, will try to

:06:25.:06:28.

play things long. He does say that if Britain does not say part of the

:06:29.:06:32.

single market, he believes that will strengthen Nicola Sturgeon's hands

:06:33.:06:38.

and any calls for a second referendum in Scotland. --

:06:39.:06:43.

independence referendum. Depending on the way that the Brexit

:06:44.:06:46.

negotiations go, he thinks the Prime Minister could be tempted to call an

:06:47.:06:51.

early UK general election. Perhaps as early as May next year.

:06:52.:06:56.

Accusations of homophobic language have been made after a satirical Rap

:06:57.:06:58.

song was performed on Sunday at an Independence convention.

:06:59.:07:03.

using a word considered by some to be offensive to gay women.

:07:04.:07:07.

John McManus' report contains some language you may

:07:08.:07:09.

Westminster, you have not even wet your whistle. This was the satirical

:07:10.:07:26.

wrap sketch that was performed at the Independence Convention on

:07:27.:07:31.

Sunday. Singers representing Scotland's female leaders obstruct

:07:32.:07:35.

the stage, making jokes and innuendo. You are about to get hit

:07:36.:07:42.

with the wit from the Cabinet. What has caused controversy is that Ruth

:07:43.:07:48.

Davidson character is introduced as Ruth date deed. She called the song

:07:49.:08:00.

hilarious. The Conservative MSP also disagrees. She has written to them

:08:01.:08:07.

asking to apologise. In this day in age, we are trying to educate and

:08:08.:08:11.

have inclusive education for children with in our schools, yet,

:08:12.:08:15.

we have a member of Parliament saying that was OK. It was hilarious

:08:16.:08:21.

and it was just satire. It certainly was not. Ruth Davidson recently

:08:22.:08:23.

and it was just satire. It certainly announced she was engaged to her

:08:24.:08:28.

partner, Jennifer Wilson. She has made jokes about lesbians as well.

:08:29.:08:33.

The Labour and Green Party also have gay leaders. Stonewall Scotland says

:08:34.:08:38.

that homophobic language can still be heard in workplaces and schools.

:08:39.:08:44.

Not everyone believes language brings discrimination. There is a

:08:45.:08:48.

difference between people saying things or cracking crude jokes and

:08:49.:08:52.

people being violent and we should get back to recognising there is a

:08:53.:08:56.

great different and one does not directly lead to the other.

:08:57.:09:00.

great different and one does not Cherry MP has released a response

She says she regrets the offence that was caused and will continue to

Joey Barton for three weeks following a training-ground dispute

:09:37.:09:40.

with a team-mate. The midfielder was sent home last

:09:41.:09:42.

Tuesday and returned to Ibrox Our senior football reporter

:09:43.:09:45.

Chris McLaughlin can tell us more. The player was sent home from the

:09:46.:10:00.

club's training ground last week following words that were exchanged

:10:01.:10:05.

between players and the manager, Mark Warburton. He was told to stay

:10:06.:10:10.

away from the club until today. This morning, he met with the manager

:10:11.:10:14.

here at Ibrox Stadium and following that meeting, the club released this

:10:15.:10:17.

statement. They said... That could be interesting. Why's on

:10:18.:10:47.

Thursday, Joey Barton releases his book titled No Nonsense, over the

:10:48.:10:57.

next 48 hours he has a number of radio interviews and TV interviews

:10:58.:11:02.

all to highlight the break. The controversial nature of his past

:11:03.:11:05.

will no doubt be mentioned in that book. The big question, relating to

:11:06.:11:14.

Rangers, has this latest bus stop ended his career here before it even

:11:15.:11:16.

got started? Well, It's over to Chris now

:11:17.:11:17.

with the weather outlook Did evening. It is dry tonight and

:11:18.:11:27.

the cloud will continue to thin and break, making things quite chilly

:11:28.:11:33.

with those clear skies. Temperatures in towns and cities are nine or 10

:11:34.:11:40.

Celsius. Cooler in the countryside. By tomorrow morning at around eight,

:11:41.:11:46.

up to 11 and 12, generally a bright morning. Cloud around the lowlands.

:11:47.:11:54.

Mist patches lifting. More cloud for the Hebrides and some shower here.

:11:55.:11:58.

For most of us, it is dry and bright Tuesday morning. Like today, the

:11:59.:12:04.

cloud will build and bubble up but we will hold onto some bright and

:12:05.:12:09.

sunny spells. The winds are generally light away from the West

:12:10.:12:14.

Coast. Across the UK as a whole, we have a weather front across east

:12:15.:12:19.

Anglia and Kent, Sussex and Hampshire producing cloud. Further

:12:20.:12:26.

west is drier and for the north of England and Scotland and northern

Ireland, some bright spells and sunshine. The cloudy afternoon

:12:31.:12:34.

compared with the morning. The wind strengthening around the West Coast.

:12:35.:12:39.

Those showers managing to give one or two showers pushing up the east

:12:40.:12:43.

coast as well. Inland is chilly but come Wednesday morning, it is dry

:12:44.:12:49.

for most. You can see across the UK, fairly settled conditions but this

:12:50.:12:52.

weather front is just pushing through Wales and some strong winds

:12:53.:12:57.

towards the West Coast of Scotland and some outbreaks of rain. As we

:12:58.:13:01.

Wednesday, turning west in the west Wednesday, turning west in the west

:13:02.:13:10.

-- wet in the west. As we look ahead to Thursday, that rain clears away

:13:11.:13:14.

and largely bright and breezy for most. Some showers in the west and

:13:15.:13:18.

turning and settled for the end of the week. Fried into Saturday, windy
