That's all from us. Now it's time for the

:00:00.:00:14.

An Australian family facing deportation from the UK

:00:15.:00:19.

have been granted leave to remain in the Highlands.

:00:20.:00:21.

Gregg and Kathryn Brain and their son failed to meet

:00:22.:00:23.

a deadline to qualify for a new visa and were told

:00:24.:00:26.

But the couple have now found work, which meets

:00:27.:00:30.

The Brain family face a more certain future this evening, after

:00:31.:00:41.

being told the leave the UK six weeks ago,

:00:42.:00:43.

they've now found work which means they can fulfil a dream

:00:44.:00:45.

Seven months now we have been without work and,

:00:46.:00:57.

you know, struggling and fighting through this whole process.

:00:58.:01:03.

Kathryn Brain came to study in the Highland and Islands University. It

:01:04.:01:14.

was understood that she would be able to stay here, but rules are

:01:15.:01:20.

changed, making that difficult. Now she has secured a key reacher post

:01:21.:01:25.

with the hotel chain, that secures them Leave to Remain in the UK. We

:01:26.:01:29.

with the hotel chain, that secures have a brilliant employer on board.

:01:30.:01:35.

They needed to get a certificate of sponsorship for this position. The

:01:36.:01:38.

position itself meets all the criteria for the Home Office. We

:01:39.:01:42.

feel like we have been guided. We followed the path are needed to

:01:43.:01:48.

happen and we quite often found that we get reminded that things happen

:01:49.:01:57.

in the 59th minute. After a high-profile campaign was launched

:01:58.:02:00.

for them to stay, the Home Office argued that it gave the family a

:02:01.:02:05.

number of extensions, allowing them time to secure a job which would

:02:06.:02:10.

meet immigration rules. There are local MP says lessons must be

:02:11.:02:13.

learned by the ways they were treated. All this grief and effort

:02:14.:02:17.

that people have had to put up with was unnecessary. It demonstrates

:02:18.:02:23.

that we need control of immigration policy here in Scotland, so we can

:02:24.:02:27.

make decisions based on our own needs and criteria. I hope no one

:02:28.:02:30.

else has to go through this kind of thing that the family have gone

:02:31.:02:34.

through over the last couple of months. After months of living in

:02:35.:02:39.

temporary accommodation, the unallocated for a permanent home.

:02:40.:02:43.

They have one final hoop to jump through at the request of their son.

:02:44.:02:47.

What do you want to have in the backyard of this house? A

:02:48.:02:49.

trampoline. A trampoline. A social worker involved in the case

:02:50.:02:55.

of the murdered Fife toddler A watchdog found Lesley Bate guilty

:02:56.:02:58.

of twelve charges involving It said her misconduct

:02:59.:03:02.

amounted to neglect. But it also criticised her employer

:03:03.:03:04.

and some of the witnesses Panel members heard five days of

:03:05.:03:17.

evidence and today delivered their judgment on Lesley Bate is. She has

:03:18.:03:24.

stayed away. The charges against higher ran into five pages. She was

:03:25.:03:29.

found guilty on all but one of them. 12 charges involving 15 children

:03:30.:03:33.

over a three-year period. Some were at risk of physical and sexual

:03:34.:03:39.

abuse. One of those children was Liam Fee. The childminder first

:03:40.:03:45.

raised concerns in January 2013, she had a massive bruise on his

:03:46.:03:49.

forehead. There were further concerned about a neck injury. More

:03:50.:03:54.

than a year later, Liam was murdered by his mother and her partner.

:03:55.:04:00.

Lesley Bate had visited Liam's home after the first injury. His mother

:04:01.:04:05.

had said he had fallen out of his cot. Mrs Bate accepted that. She

:04:06.:04:09.

failed to follow up on the later concerns. None of these would have

:04:10.:04:13.

surprised those who feared for Liam's safety and tried to get him

:04:14.:04:17.

help. The whole community is completely knocked by this. The

:04:18.:04:22.

worst part is a lot of people were speaking up and we were not taken

:04:23.:04:28.

seriously enough. We SSSC panel found Lesley Bate left Liam Fee and

:04:29.:04:34.

other children at risk of actual or potential harm and her serious

:04:35.:04:40.

misconduct amounted to neglect. Fife Council says it has every confidence

:04:41.:04:44.

in the professionalism and integrity of the stuff they give evidence.

:04:45.:04:48.

Tonight there are calls for a wider review. It is very clear there was

:04:49.:04:52.

no joint working and the communication seems to have been

:04:53.:04:55.

extremely poor throughout this case. We need to make sure there are no

:04:56.:04:59.

others that are allowed to slip through the net. Whether the

:05:00.:05:04.

authorities could have done more to stop them, it is now being

:05:05.:05:08.

investigated by a significant case review. Fife Council declined to be

:05:09.:05:12.

interviewed today. In a statement they said, the Lesley Bate Kreis

:05:13.:05:25.

does not reflect high standards of professionalism it expects from its

:05:26.:05:26.

staff. -- Leslie baked. The Scottish Labour Party is to have

:05:27.:05:33.

more decision making power under plans agreed tonight by the UK

:05:34.:05:36.

party's ruling body - the NEC. The NEC has approved devolving

:05:37.:05:39.

control over policy constituency parties and Westminster

:05:57.:05:58.

Almost a quarter of young women in Scotland have reported they've

:05:59.:06:00.

self-harmed that's according to a comprehensive survey

:06:01.:06:02.

It also found eight percent have attempted suicide.

:06:03.:06:05.

The figures in the Scottish Health Survey further highlight the link

:06:06.:06:08.

between poor health and anxiety with deprivation.

:06:09.:06:10.

Our home affairs correspondent Reevel Alderson has more.

:06:11.:06:18.

How do we feel about ourselves? The annual health survey highlights

:06:19.:06:24.

changes in personal well-being among Scots. It shows a level of anxiety

:06:25.:06:32.

and depression being felt. Those in the most deprived areas are more

:06:33.:06:38.

likely to suffer symptoms. 9% of women self harmed. The woman for end

:06:39.:06:42.

was 6%. Among young women, the figure is 23%. For men it is 13%. 8%

:06:43.:06:51.

of these young women and 4% of young men have attempted suicide. Mental

:06:52.:06:55.

health charities say they are not surprised by these figures. They

:06:56.:06:58.

have been receiving an increased number of calls from young people

:06:59.:07:02.

seeking help. We know from the research and evidence we have been

:07:03.:07:06.

looking at over the last couple of weeks that young women and body

:07:07.:07:09.

image is a real issue. There is a lot going on in people's lives and

:07:10.:07:14.

therefore, the increase in self harm, particularly with young women,

:07:15.:07:21.

is a way that they can control situations themselves. The health

:07:22.:07:25.

survey also reveals an increase in the number of people using

:07:26.:07:28.

electronic cigarettes and a further decline in those smoking, although

:07:29.:07:32.

it shows one in five still smokes. It also shows fewer children are

:07:33.:07:37.

exposed to second-hand smoke in the home. The survey's aim is to provide

:07:38.:07:44.

the Government information needed to tackle Scotland's health problems.

:07:45.:07:48.

We are able to look at some of the key indicators in Scottish health

:07:49.:07:53.

and be able to provide a picture of the nation's health and how that has

:07:54.:07:58.

changed over time. What we are able to see on measures like smoking, for

:07:59.:08:03.

example, is that there has been a long-term decline. Clearly,

:08:04.:08:07.

information campaigns are not enough. Only one in five Scots meets

:08:08.:08:10.

the recommendation of five portions of fruit and veg a day. That is the

:08:11.:08:13.

same level as 13 years ago. Today's health figures also show

:08:14.:08:15.

there's been almost no change in levels of physical

:08:16.:08:18.

activity in Scotland. A quarter of all children

:08:19.:08:20.

and a third of adults are failing to meet activity

:08:21.:08:22.

guidelines set by the This is despite a promise

:08:23.:08:25.

that the Commonwealth Games would inspire people

:08:26.:08:28.

to become more active. This is the sort of cheap and

:08:29.:08:45.

cheerful activity that can encourage healthy habits. We are stuck outside

:08:46.:08:50.

all day. I think it is really fine and it helps you get healthy and

:08:51.:08:56.

fit. The daily mile has been adopted by schools up and down the country.

:08:57.:09:01.

It did not have any connection to the Commonwealth Games. Glasgow 2014

:09:02.:09:07.

was clearly popular. A catalyst for regeneration in the east end of the

:09:08.:09:12.

city. It helped create a wave of elite athletes. When it comes to

:09:13.:09:16.

mass participation in sport, we do not seem to be getting the message.

:09:17.:09:23.

Why do politicians say it will? Inactivity is the second biggest

:09:24.:09:26.

killer in Scotland. The Government set targets to combat it. It is

:09:27.:09:33.

falling far short of this. Activity levels Remain stagnant, obesity

:09:34.:09:37.

levels are poor. There has been no significant rise in children

:09:38.:09:44.

participating in sport since 2008, before the Olympics and Commonwealth

:09:45.:09:47.

Games came along. I do not accept that. The games have been an

:09:48.:09:53.

important part in ensuring sport remains high on the agenda. The

:09:54.:09:56.

whole investment in physical education and getting that 10% of

:09:57.:10:02.

schools doing two hours to 90 98% of schools. It was a legacy of the

:10:03.:10:08.

Commonwealth Games. Researchers say to change inactivity, will require a

:10:09.:10:13.

cultural shift. Sport is not the first option for those people. We

:10:14.:10:17.

need to look how we will get them active through active living,

:10:18.:10:20.

cycling, walking, gardening and those kinds of activities, rather

:10:21.:10:22.

than sport themselves. This is the those kinds of activities, rather

:10:23.:10:28.

sort of thing, walking groups. Small steps, big benefits. First of all,

:10:29.:10:33.

keeping in touch physically. It improves mobility and balance. We

:10:34.:10:38.

are all very sociable. There is lots of talking, sometimes far too much

:10:39.:10:43.

talking and less concentration. The attitudinal shift to get people

:10:44.:10:48.

active is not going to come about by hosting a big sporting event.

:10:49.:10:50.

The Scottish FA is investigating claims that the Rangers

:10:51.:10:53.

player Joey Bartonbroke its gambling rules

:10:54.:10:54.

The SFA prevents players from betting on any football games.

:10:55.:10:58.

It's understood the allegations centre around

:10:59.:10:59.

a bet placed on Celtic's recent Champions League match

:11:00.:11:03.

Well, It's over to Kirsteen now with the weather outlook

:11:04.:11:09.

:12:43.:12:46.

its journey eastwards, allowing dry areas in the west. As we look ahead
