The Prime Minister has told BBC Scotland that she wants

:00:07.:00:10.

the Scottish Government to be "fully engaged"

:00:11.:00:12.

in the Brexit talks - but she's emphasised that

:00:13.:00:15.

ministers in Edinburgh can have no veto over the process.

:00:16.:00:18.

We're hearing from all the party leaders

:00:19.:00:19.

Ahead of the Conservative party conference, Theresa May has been

:00:20.:00:23.

speaking to our Westminster correspondent, David Porter.

:00:24.:00:28.

One of the consequences of the Brexit vote,

:00:29.:00:31.

a new Prime Minister entering Downing Street with

:00:32.:00:33.

The full title of my party is the Conservative and Unionist

:00:34.:00:42.

party, and that word "Unionist" is very important to me.

:00:43.:00:47.

Within days, Theresa May was in Edinburgh

:00:48.:00:49.

As expected, no meeting of minds on politics but an agreement

:00:50.:00:53.

how will the Prime Minister deal with Brexit and Scotland?

:00:54.:01:06.

Well, the negotiations will be for the United Kingdom to conduct

:01:07.:01:09.

I want to ensure that we hear from all parts of the UK,

:01:10.:01:16.

from the Scottish Government, that we engage with them

:01:17.:01:19.

on the issues that particularly matter to Scotland.

:01:20.:01:22.

But what is crucial is that I'm determined we will make a success

:01:23.:01:31.

of this and I'm really clear that we there will be opportunities

:01:32.:01:34.

for the whole of the UK as we leave the European Union.

:01:35.:01:37.

We must grasp those opportunities, but I also want to be a government

:01:38.:01:40.

that works for everyone, not a privileged few.

:01:41.:01:42.

That means ensuring the benefits of economic growth

:01:43.:01:44.

For clarity, there can be no Scottish veto?

:01:45.:01:48.

The United Kingdom will have a position in the negotiations

:01:49.:01:51.

and as the United Kingdom government we will negotiate

:01:52.:01:53.

But we will listen to and take account of the particular concerns

:01:54.:01:57.

of Scotland and other parts of the UK, and we want to ensure

:01:58.:02:02.

crucially that the benefits we are able to achieve from the deal

:02:03.:02:05.

we get with the European Union, from the opportunities that

:02:06.:02:09.

will open up outside the EU in the rest of the world,

:02:10.:02:11.

Of course, it all plays into the wider

:02:12.:02:15.

On this, the Prime Minister is resolute.

:02:16.:02:21.

There are two questions about a second

:02:22.:02:23.

One, could there be? That is a process issue.

:02:24.:02:27.

I think the real question is should there be a second

:02:28.:02:29.

referendum in Scotland? My answer is no.

:02:30.:02:33.

I continue to believe Scotland is better off as part

:02:34.:02:37.

of the United Kingdom. I think that is important.

:02:38.:02:42.

People talk about what is going to happen in terms of leaving

:02:43.:02:46.

the European Union for Scotland's trade with Europe,

:02:47.:02:51.

but actually their trade with the rest of the UK,

:02:52.:02:55.

the economic importance of Scotland being part of the UK

:02:56.:02:57.

If Nicola Sturgeon came to you and said,

:02:58.:03:02.

I am planning to hold a second referendum.

:03:03.:03:04.

Would you say to Westminster, tell them they can't do it?

:03:05.:03:08.

I think there should not be a second referendum in Scotland.

:03:09.:03:11.

I continue to believe Scotland is better off as part

:03:12.:03:14.

of the United Kingdom, and I believe passionately

:03:15.:03:19.

in the strong union there has been between Scotland

:03:20.:03:21.

and the rest of the United Kingdom for so long.

:03:22.:03:24.

Our history, the economic ties that we have,

:03:25.:03:26.

I want Scotland to remain part of the UK.

:03:27.:03:32.

Brexit is the dominant issue in the Prime Minister's in-tray.

:03:33.:03:36.

As the Conservative and Unionist party, to give it its full title,

:03:37.:03:39.

gathers for its conference in Birmingham, how it impacts

:03:40.:03:43.

on Scotland is also sure to be a major talking point.

:03:44.:03:52.

A Scottish boxer is in a critical condition in hospital tonight

:03:53.:03:55.

after being injured in a fight in Glasgow.

:03:56.:03:57.

Mike Towell was stretchered from the ring during the bout.

:03:58.:04:00.

The event was being broadcast live on television.

:04:01.:04:02.

The fight was against Dale Evans in Glasgow last night.

:04:03.:04:16.

The Dundee boxer was undefeated going into the fight,

:04:17.:04:24.

but the 25-year-old was knocked down in the first round

:04:25.:04:26.

and again in the fifth, before the fight was stopped.

:04:27.:04:48.

The event at the hotel was organised by the St Andrews sporting club.

:04:49.:04:51.

They say their thoughts and prayers are with the box and his family.

:04:52.:04:54.

The club director and Mike Towell's manager travelled with him

:04:55.:04:57.

in the ambulance to the hospital and spent the night by his bedside.

:04:58.:05:00.

I know he is a good fighter and he can punch like myself.

:05:01.:05:04.

It was either going to be him or me, but nobody ever wants to see someone

:05:05.:05:08.

stretchered out of the ring and I hope he is all right.

:05:09.:05:12.

The referee was also in charge of this British middleweight

:05:13.:05:14.

title fight in March between Chris Eubank Junior

:05:15.:05:16.

and Nick Blackwell, in which Blackwell suffered

:05:17.:05:18.

a bleed in the skull, ending his career.

:05:19.:05:20.

That fight, and about last night, raised questions

:05:21.:05:22.

about the safety of the sport, but it is being defended.

:05:23.:05:24.

The way boxing is run, the medics in the game,

:05:25.:05:29.

the British board of Boxing Control do a fantastic job,

:05:30.:05:31.

I believe boxing is a relatively safe sport.

:05:32.:05:34.

Mike Towell's family remain with him at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital,

:05:35.:05:37.

where he is still in critical condition.

:05:38.:05:43.

A former Scotland international footballer has denied offering

:05:44.:05:45.

advice on how to bribe coaching staff at clubs in England.

:05:46.:05:50.

Eric Black, who's now assistant manager with Southampton,

:05:51.:05:52.

was filmed talking to undercover reporters.

:05:53.:05:57.

It was part of an ongoing Daily Telegraph investigation

:05:58.:05:59.

More from our sports reporter David Currie.

:06:00.:06:08.

This is Eric Black Bean filmed covertly. It's claimed he knew staff

:06:09.:06:22.

It all could be eges he named staff at

:06:23.:06:25.

pass on information about players to the company

:06:26.:06:43.

black denied suggesting that any football officials should be paid

:06:44.:06:56.

and said that it related to food and scupper an agency might approach.

:06:57.:07:01.

Eric Black made his name as a player at Aberdeen.

:07:02.:07:09.

The Lanarkshire born forward spent five years with Aberdeen before

:07:10.:07:17.

moving to France with Metz. He had a brief period as assistant manager at

:07:18.:07:20.

Celtic and a short time as Motherwell manager before starting

:07:21.:07:24.

his managerial career in England with Coventry City. After a number

:07:25.:07:28.

of coaching and caretaker manager positions he became assistant boss

:07:29.:07:32.

at Premier League Southampton this year. Southampton say that they are

:07:33.:07:36.

fully committed to investigating the claims and intend to work closely

:07:37.:07:40.

with the English Premier League, and the English FA.

:07:41.:07:43.

Football, and there was one match in the Scottish Premiership tonight.

:07:44.:07:46.

Hearts won 3-1 at Motherwell to move up to second place.

:07:47.:07:50.

The Edinburgh side scored through Nicolson, Paterson and Joum,

:07:51.:07:53.

before James McFadden hit a late consolation goal for the hosts.

:07:54.:08:01.

Let's get the weekend weather forecast now, from Christopher.

:08:02.:08:06.

Good evening to you. It is dry, clear and cold tonight. Touch of

:08:07.:08:17.

missed and cost as well, but generally dry. Most of the wet

:08:18.:08:20.

weather to the south courtesy of this low pressure bringing showers

:08:21.:08:26.

from Wales towards England making for a soggy Saturday year, but for

:08:27.:08:32.

us, reasonably dry. Some showers towards the North Channel but most

:08:33.:08:36.

of the mainland dry with some cloud and some spells of sunshine. But it

:08:37.:08:42.

is south of the border where the wet weather is on Saturday. Really quite

:08:43.:08:47.

soggy through parts of Wales into the Midlands and the south coast.

:08:48.:08:51.

Dry for the North of England and towards Northern Ireland with a few

:08:52.:08:55.

bright spells and showers. Similar to what we will see by the

:08:56.:08:58.

afternoon, bright spells and showers. This is a scene at 4pm,

:08:59.:09:04.

around 14 Celsius at best and feeling pleasant in those light

:09:05.:09:10.

winds. There is the chance of one or two heavier, thundery downpours but

:09:11.:09:16.

they will be later and he will be unlucky to catch one. Some showers

:09:17.:09:20.

for Orkney, Shetland should be dry and bright. By the end of the day

:09:21.:09:25.

those showers fade to leave spells of sunshine and overnight it will be

:09:26.:09:29.

cold than this coming night, but for Sunday, with a ridge of high

:09:30.:09:33.

pressure in charge across the UK, it will be dry, fine and sunny. A

:09:34.:09:40.

chilly start on Sunday, round about freezing mark but when the sun comes

:09:41.:09:43.

up it should warm up and it will be a lovely day with plenty of sunshine

:09:44.:09:50.

and blue sky. The winds light, with temperatures up a notch or two.

:09:51.:09:53.

From everyone on the late team here in Glasgow

:09:54.:09:57.

and around the country, goodnight.

:09:58.:10:01.
