The Scottish nurse Pauline Cafferkey, who contracted the ebola
virus in West Africa, is back in hospital in Glasgow.
She was taken from her home in Cambuslang by ambulance,
with a police escort earlier today, after becoming ill.
Doctors say Miss Cafferkey has tested negative for Ebola
Our reporter Aileen Clarke has been following the day's events.
It's just three weeks since Pauline Cafferkey emerged
from a hearing in Edinburgh cleared to go back to nursing.
This process has been upsetting and stressful for Pauline but she's
delighted that the panel is made the decision that she
As she left that day, she must have been looking forward
to continuing with her nursing career but this morning
she was taken from her home in Cambuslang by ambulance
under police escort by hospital in Glasgow.
Neighbours expressed concern and hope for
She was making progress, out and about and going to work.
She's come through so much and, each time she gets out,
she thinks she's on the road to recovery and then
Unfortunately she contracted the disease
We thought she had turned the corner last time and was OK.
Pauline Cafferkey contracted Ebola after going out to nurse patients
in the Ebola outbreak in Sierra Leone.
On her return home, she became critically ill and complex
arrangements were put in place to transport her to a specialist
unit in London, where she stayed for a month.
Last October, the virus re-emerged causing meningitis and she was
In February this year, another complication,
another readmission to the specialist unit.
In September, the hearing into what she had told health
officials when she arrived back in the UK from Sierra Leone
This morning, she was taken back to hospital as a patient.
She spoke a year ago about how she didn't really know how herself
It's taken me a good few months to recover.
Hopefully this is the end of it, but you just don't know.
The health board said they are pleased to report Pauline Cafferkey
tested negative for the Ebola virus. She remains in hospital tonight in a
stable condition but the health board said because of her medical
history, it was appropriate precautionary measures were taken
whilst further investigations were carried out.
The Scottish government is banning the controversial practice
The technique involves burning difficult to mine
coal under the ground, and capturing the gas it gives off,
Environmental campaigners are against the practice
but the Conservatives argue it has the potential to boost the economy.
Here's our Environment correspondent, Kevin Keane.
It lies deep beneath the rippling waves and is causing alarm to
communities along its banks but today the monster was silenced.
That monster is coal, and this campaign has fought hard
for a ban on the controversial technique to turn it into energy.
Nobody knows what's above it and nobody can convince us how
they are going to prevent any of it, the gas leaching into old mine
The technique involves drilling to the coal seam and getting oxygen.
That causes gas to rise back to the surface where it is captured.
The amount mined here at the coal face was only the most
accessible, just a small proportion of what exists.
Little now remains here of the industry that these
They once supported tens of thousands of jobs,
and some have predicted that gasification would prompt
The techniques might be different to fracking but the protests covered
them all and today ministers confirmed what was a first victory
It doesn't come at any price and we have to take a balanced,
proportion of view, listening to the scientific evidence
Underground coal gasification is very different to fracking.
Last week, the first imported shipment shale gas
The Scottish Conservatives say these technologies have
This ban is nothing short of environmental nimbyism.
It's clear that the SNP is happy to allow shale gas to be
imported from Pennsylvania and America and today,
when asked, there was no ban on importing any
For now, one controversial technology is dead in the water
but the bigger battle against fracking here
A new report has warned that Scotland could lose between thirty
thousand and eighty thousand jobs, as a consequence of leaving
The report - from the Fraser of Allander Institute -
suggests the relative impact on the rest of the UK
The issue dominated questions to the First Minister,
Here's our political editor Brian Taylor.
Scotland trades with the European Union, and that's
potentially affected by Brexit, especially if tariffs replace free
The report commissioned by Holyrood puts
It tracks the extent to which Scotland disengages
Under the best scenario, the economy would shrink by at least 2%,
Under the worst scenario, the economy would contract by 5%,
The report says that Brexit may have a worse impact
than on the remainder of the UK because Scotland is less exposed.
It insulates Scotland slightly from the shock of Brexit.
It isn't surprising when you think of the trade composition
of the Scottish economy and the UK economy.
Nicola Sturgeon said the report underlined the need to minimise any
disruption caused by Brexit but she was challenged
by Ruth Davidson of the Tories to say what she would do.
My position is to face up to the realities ahead of us,
to mitigate risks and take advantage of opportunities,
and this Parliament now faces a choice about whether to put
the lions share of its efforts into examining practical
solutions or simply complaining about the results.
Ms Sturgeon said the Tories brought about Brexit.
Unlike Miss Davidson, my position hasn't changed.
I continue to think that Brexit is a bad idea and I continue
to think it's my responsibility to protect Scotland from it.
These foreign workers are our neighbours,
-- the idea of an audit of foreign workers.
The First Minister offered a suggestion.
To call on the UK Government to stop using human beings as bargaining
chips and give them the guaranteed right to stay where they belong,
Supporters of Brexit said it would open opportunities
The report authors concede circumstances may change
with passage of time and under political direction but,
as of today, the Scottish take on Brexit is wholly negative.
The Auditor General is warning that two Scottish health boards
are facing prolonged and serious financial challenges.
NHS Tayside needs to make savings of one hundred and seventy
five million pounds over the next five years, while the bill
for NHS-24's new IT system has soared by seventy five per cent.
The financial watchdog said the difficulties faced by the boards
would "continue to have an impact on the way they operate
Now feeding people is an important part of the Sikh religion,
and every temple offers free food to anyone who goes there.
This week, Sikhs across the world are taking this principle a step
further, by serving free food - known as lungar - on the streets
They hope to target those in need, and to promote peace....
These women in Edinburgh meet every week to prepare food for anyone
who comes to the temple, regardless of faith or background.
And, for the past two years, they have been making extra portions
on Wednesday to take onto the streets of the capital.
We make a curry with potatoes and rice.
We also give hot tea, coffee, hot chocolate, sweets, biscuits.
The stall is set up in the centre of Edinburgh for anyone
In this Langar Week, the scene is being repeated in many countries.
Some people are busy and we thought we would do Langar Week every year.
We are here to help anyone in anyway.
The smell and taste of the curry cheering up an autumn evening.
Many people seek Langar as a welcome service.
If it was not for themselves, the homeless would be hungry
Even after Langar Week the Sikhs in Edinburgh are hoping to increase
the amount of free street food they provide.
Time now for the latest weather forecast, with Kawser.
Good evening, a fine evening so far and overnight tonight we will see
more cloud increasing but staying largely dry the many of us. The risk
perhaps of a few showers developing across the southern borders on the
South easterly wind drawing in cloud and showers on the coast. For most
of the country, dry with clear spells and clear spells across the
North West with temperatures dipping to four or 5 degrees with patchy fog
on the great Glen area and inland. Tomorrow morning, a fair bit of
cloud around, showers and die away, more sunny spells developing so 8am,
the risk of showers across parts of the West Coast but in the north a
good deal of sunshine to start the day, a chilly start and some
sunshine for the Northern Isles. Still breezy Orkney. A wider look,
much more cloud tomorrow across England and Wales and Northern
Ireland, the risk of showers as the wind becomes more easterly. Across
the North East the best of the sunshine and temperatures reaching
up to 16 Celsius. We still have high pressure across Scandinavia bringing
settled fine conditions and keeping these were the sisters at bay but
the wind direction becomes more easterly with a fresher feel looking
ahead to the end of the week and towards the weekend. For the
weekend, sunny spells, the risk of a few showers mainly towards eastern
areas and feeling cooler with temperatures down to average for the
time of year. Saturday, the best of any sunshine in the west, more cloud
in the east and showers will be fairly isolated and well scattered
and light with sunny spells between and temperatures around 13 or 14
Celsius. The wind is like inland, fresher on the coast. A similar day
on Sunday. Our next update is during Breakfast
at six twenty five tomorrow morning. But, from everyone on the late
team here in Glasgow and around the country -
