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

The significance of this for Scottish manufacturing industry,


is really important and can't be overestimated.


There are already 100 people back working here,

A Labour motion noting widespread concern about proposals to downgrade


Earlier, I spoke to our Political Editor Brian Taylor.


Nothing riles local communities more than the faintest hint to their


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


This is Labour gathering folk from various health services across


Scotland concerned about the provision of those services.


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


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


of issues where services are being questioned and reviewed about


possible revision and demanded that ministers called in all these


decisions from the various health boards and demanded that they take


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


outright. And the ministers have been defeated? The amendment


defending the record has been defeated and the Labour motion went


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


the SNP that they are a minority here at Holyrood.

The trainees had been stuck on the vessel


in the South China Sea since its owners


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


Highlands, one of his priorities is getting a haircut.

by Barcelona and set the tempo for the game.


Our senior football reporter Chris McLaughlin has the details.


A quite incredible night of Champions League football here at

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


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


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

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


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


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


stormy weather should be easing off. The weather warning disappearing


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


at 6.25 tomorrow morning. here in Glasgow


and around the country - goodnight.
