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

:00:00.:00:00.

Scotland's last major steelworks, the Dalzell Mill in Motherwell,

:00:00.:00:14.

has been officially re-opened by the First Minister.

:00:15.:00:18.

It closed down last year but - under new ownership -

:00:19.:00:20.

there are renewed hopes for its future.

:00:21.:00:23.

Our Business and Economy Editor, Douglas Fraser, reports.

:00:24.:00:31.

Scotland's steel town where the rolling slab again.

:00:32.:00:37.

A warm welcome today for the return of Dalzell's thunder.

:00:38.:00:40.

The deal was brokered by the Scottish Government.

:00:41.:00:45.

The significance of this for Scottish manufacturing industry,

:00:46.:00:48.

is really important and can't be overestimated.

:00:49.:00:52.

There are already 100 people back working here,

:00:53.:00:55.

and plans that Liberty have for the future will hopefully

:00:56.:00:58.

see that workforce doubled over the next 18 months,

:00:59.:01:01.

so this is not just hanging on to an old industry,

:01:02.:01:04.

this is about reimagining the steel industry for the future and giving

:01:05.:01:07.

These slabs have been made in England and Russia.

:01:08.:01:13.

They are destined for construction and offshore energy,

:01:14.:01:16.

but they could be used for much more.

:01:17.:01:22.

symbolic of the Lanarkshire steel-making past.

:01:23.:01:41.

The partner plant of Clydebridge has yet to be reopened.

:01:42.:01:43.

It depends on finding customers and at the right price.

:01:44.:01:48.

There is no light at the end of the tunnel for the steel industry.

:01:49.:01:56.

In the UK industry there is an opportunity to serve the needs

:01:57.:01:59.

Speaking of opportunity, that return of jobs to Dalzell

:02:00.:02:03.

was not expected by those recently laid off.

:02:04.:02:04.

You don't know if you're going to be kept on, and that's it.

:02:05.:02:08.

Luckily, I was one of the ones to be kept on.

:02:09.:02:14.

Just get on with it, see where it takes us.

:02:15.:02:21.

The nearby Ravenscraig site has little on it apart

:02:22.:02:23.

Where the next generation still looks to a future built on steel.

:02:24.:02:35.

I left Motherwell because there were no opportunities.

:02:36.:02:37.

Now they are bringing more back to this sort of area.

:02:38.:02:39.

The people in our generation, I think it would build up a lot more

:02:40.:02:43.

opportunity for new jobs and stuff and giving people more experience

:02:44.:02:47.

and stuff to get into different traits like the steelworks.

:02:48.:02:49.

Battered and hard-pressed, Lanarkshire itself has been

:02:50.:02:52.

For now, at least, a brighter future.

:02:53.:03:00.

The Scottish Government has been defeated at Holyrood in a row

:03:01.:03:02.

A Labour motion noting widespread concern about proposals to downgrade

:03:03.:03:08.

Earlier, I spoke to our Political Editor Brian Taylor.

:03:09.:03:19.

Nothing riles local communities more than the faintest hint to their

:03:20.:03:27.

hospital services. When communities get riled, politicians get worried.

:03:28.:03:33.

This is Labour gathering folk from various health services across

:03:34.:03:37.

Scotland concerned about the provision of those services.

:03:38.:03:40.

Gathering outside Parliament before taking it to a vote in the chamber

:03:41.:03:46.

this afternoon. Labour's 's strategy was to pull together a whole series

:03:47.:03:52.

of issues where services are being questioned and reviewed about

:03:53.:03:56.

possible revision and demanded that ministers called in all these

:03:57.:04:00.

decisions from the various health boards and demanded that they take

:04:01.:04:06.

them themselves. In fact, they said ministers should reject the changes

:04:07.:04:14.

outright. And the ministers have been defeated? The amendment

:04:15.:04:18.

defending the record has been defeated and the Labour motion went

:04:19.:04:22.

through. You could see the exasperation on the face of the

:04:23.:04:26.

Health Secretary. She accused Labour of trying to get around the due

:04:27.:04:32.

process whereby the county council is involved in these decisions. She

:04:33.:04:36.

will report back to Parliament on each of these. Will she speed them

:04:37.:04:43.

up? I don't think so. She will say that accelerating decisions on these

:04:44.:04:48.

would cut out people from the consultation. She will look at these

:04:49.:04:53.

proposals in detail and report back to Parliament. This is a reminder to

:04:54.:04:58.

the SNP that they are a minority here at Holyrood.

:04:59.:05:01.

Scotland's Chief Constable has revealed that new allegations have

:05:02.:05:04.

been raised about members of the controversial police

:05:05.:05:06.

The allegations, made in the past three months,

:05:07.:05:11.

are of attempting to pervert the course of justice

:05:12.:05:13.

Phil Gormley has told Holyrood's Justice Committee the allegations

:05:14.:05:17.

They arise from the investigation into the murder in 2005

:05:18.:05:21.

A container ship with four cadets

:05:22.:05:32.

from a Scottish college on board has finally docked in Singapore

:05:33.:05:35.

after being stranded at sea for a month.

:05:36.:05:36.

The trainees had been stuck on the vessel

:05:37.:05:38.

in the South China Sea since its owners

:05:39.:05:40.

The ship finally docked at eight club this morning and its cargo

:05:41.:05:54.

quickly off-loaded followed closely behind by the young cadets from

:05:55.:05:57.

Scotland who flew home after being caught up in this saga at sea. The

:05:58.:06:05.

day we heard this was all going on, it was very worrying. Especially for

:06:06.:06:08.

our families who didn't know anything even. The trainee officers

:06:09.:06:15.

had been studying at the city of Glasgow College and became stranded

:06:16.:06:21.

when ports around the world refused entry to any ships owned by the

:06:22.:06:29.

parent company which had collapsed. They faced sending the ship to

:06:30.:06:37.

Singapore and running out of food. We had nine days of food left and it

:06:38.:06:42.

is a six-day voyage from Sri Lankan to Singapore. A potential three day

:06:43.:06:53.

leeway that could have ended worse. We ran out of fresh fruit,

:06:54.:07:00.

vegetables, eggs, flour. We were already well into running out of

:07:01.:07:06.

things. The ordeal ended when the Singapore High Court granted the

:07:07.:07:08.

things. The ordeal ended when the South Korean shipping giant a

:07:09.:07:13.

temporary reprieve. Much to the relief of their families. Being

:07:14.:07:19.

their mother, you want to be able to protect and help them and being so

:07:20.:07:27.

far away you felt so useless. I waiting until I see him, but getting

:07:28.:07:37.

far away you felt so useless. I excited. After flying home to the

:07:38.:07:44.

Highlands, one of his priorities is getting a haircut.

:07:45.:07:47.

The UK Labour leader - Jeremy Corbyn -

:07:48.:07:48.

has used the closing address to his party's

:07:49.:07:50.

conference in Liverpool to put activists on an election footing.

:07:51.:07:52.

he didn't mention Scottish Labour's leader Kezia Dugdale.

:07:53.:07:56.

From Liverpool here's our political correspondent, David Porter.

:07:57.:07:59.

These four lads did not do at all badly from being

:08:00.:08:01.

Whether Labour like it or not, Jeremy Corbyn is very

:08:02.:08:05.

He is not looking for pop immortality, but supporters would be

:08:06.:08:11.

delighted if some of the Stardust rubbed off on him as well.

:08:12.:08:19.

We are the largest political party in Western Europe,

:08:20.:08:22.

with over 500,000 members, campaigning in every

:08:23.:08:25.

More people have joined our party in the last 20 months

:08:26.:08:31.

Few direct references to Scotland, and tellingly,

:08:32.:08:43.

Instead, a mention of Scotland's largest council.

:08:44.:08:51.

Glasgow has introduced flexible workplaces for start-up companies.

:08:52.:08:56.

It is a proud Labour record, and each and every Labour councillor

:08:57.:09:00.

deserves our heartfelt thanks for the work they do

:09:01.:09:03.

and the difficulties they endure in doing it.

:09:04.:09:05.

He put his party on an election footing, quoting Bill Shankly.

:09:06.:09:14.

The socialism I believe in is everybody working for the same

:09:15.:09:16.

goal and everyone having a share in the rewards.

:09:17.:09:30.

That is how I see football, and that is how I see life.

:09:31.:09:33.

A traditional end to the conference with a rendition of the red flag.

:09:34.:09:36.

As delegates leave Liverpool, they know that much still needs

:09:37.:09:38.

Football now and Celtic and Manchester City

:09:39.:09:48.

played out a six goal thriller at Parkhead tonight

:09:49.:09:50.

Celtic were keen make amends following their heavy defeat

:09:51.:09:55.

by Barcelona and set the tempo for the game.

:09:56.:09:57.

Our senior football reporter Chris McLaughlin has the details.

:09:58.:10:04.

A quite incredible night of Champions League football here at

:10:05.:10:12.

Celtic Park. A roller-coaster match in the rain and what a start for

:10:13.:10:19.

Celtic. Mousa Dembele with the opening after just three minutes. A

:10:20.:10:23.

touch of offside. Celtic Park erupted. The visitors levelled after

:10:24.:10:30.

ten minutes, Fernandinho with the finish. Celtic took the lead again.

:10:31.:10:40.

This time Tierney taking a big deflection. Again, Pep Guardiola's

:10:41.:10:44.

side fought back through Raheem Sterling. The start of the second

:10:45.:10:53.

half, Dembele made it 3-2. But like a true heavyweight match, city came

:10:54.:11:03.

slugging back and Nolito level. Celtic made amends for their 7-0

:11:04.:11:05.

defeat to Barcelona. Well, It's over to Christopher

:11:06.:11:11.

Blanchett now with the weather A stormy night and tomorrow morning.

:11:12.:11:29.

A yellow warning in force. This area of low pressure trundling around the

:11:30.:11:34.

north of the country bringing high winds and squally showers. The cold

:11:35.:11:38.

front slipping south of the border and moving through England

:11:39.:11:43.

overnight. For others, the wind is the story. By eight o'clock tomorrow

:11:44.:11:50.

morning, perhaps trying to ease back but still we can see we are likely

:11:51.:11:58.

to have some disruption, not only on the ferries but on the bridges as

:11:59.:12:03.

well. Potential for brunch is being brought down, debris on the road.

:12:04.:12:09.

Some big waves around the coasts. Potential over topping on the

:12:10.:12:19.

causeways. Blustery conditions. But come lunchtime that brief spell of

:12:20.:12:24.

stormy weather should be easing off. The weather warning disappearing

:12:25.:12:31.

around one o'clock in the afternoon. The weather front pulling away from

:12:32.:12:36.

the Kent coastline by afternoon. We will have showers by afternoon and

:12:37.:12:39.

the Kent coastline by afternoon. We into the evening. Some really potent

:12:40.:12:48.

ones in central areas. Friday, a little bit calmer. A few showers

:12:49.:12:53.

becoming increasingly confined to the west. Like tomorrow, a cooler,

:12:54.:13:02.

fresher feel. The weekend, Saturday brings showery outbreaks of rain.

:13:03.:13:07.

Further north, generally drier and brighter but Sunday is the pick of

:13:08.:13:12.

the two days. Decent spells of sunshine. To night and tomorrow,

:13:13.:13:14.

it's going to be windy. Our next update is during Breakfast

:13:15.:13:17.

at 6.25 tomorrow morning. here in Glasgow

:13:18.:13:24.

and around the country - goodnight.
