from bad to worse. We'll be speaking to the party chairman. What does he

:00:00.3:59:59

The Scottish nurse Pauline Cafferkey, who contracted the ebola

:00:00.:00:13.

virus in West Africa, is back in hospital in Glasgow.

:00:14.:00:17.

She was taken from her home in Cambuslang by ambulance,

:00:18.:00:21.

with a police escort earlier today, after becoming ill.

:00:22.:00:26.

Doctors say Miss Cafferkey has tested negative for Ebola

:00:27.:00:28.

Our reporter Aileen Clarke has been following the day's events.

:00:29.:00:36.

It's just three weeks since Pauline Cafferkey emerged

:00:37.:00:37.

from a hearing in Edinburgh cleared to go back to nursing.

:00:38.:00:44.

This process has been upsetting and stressful for Pauline but she's

:00:45.:00:48.

delighted that the panel is made the decision that she

:00:49.:00:54.

As she left that day, she must have been looking forward

:00:55.:00:58.

to continuing with her nursing career but this morning

:00:59.:01:00.

she was taken from her home in Cambuslang by ambulance

:01:01.:01:02.

under police escort by hospital in Glasgow.

:01:03.:01:04.

Neighbours expressed concern and hope for

:01:05.:01:06.

She was making progress, out and about and going to work.

:01:07.:01:21.

She's come through so much and, each time she gets out,

:01:22.:01:24.

she thinks she's on the road to recovery and then

:01:25.:01:26.

Unfortunately she contracted the disease

:01:27.:01:29.

We thought she had turned the corner last time and was OK.

:01:30.:01:40.

Pauline Cafferkey contracted Ebola after going out to nurse patients

:01:41.:01:42.

in the Ebola outbreak in Sierra Leone.

:01:43.:01:44.

On her return home, she became critically ill and complex

:01:45.:01:46.

arrangements were put in place to transport her to a specialist

:01:47.:01:49.

unit in London, where she stayed for a month.

:01:50.:01:52.

Last October, the virus re-emerged causing meningitis and she was

:01:53.:01:55.

In February this year, another complication,

:01:56.:02:02.

another readmission to the specialist unit.

:02:03.:02:06.

In September, the hearing into what she had told health

:02:07.:02:09.

officials when she arrived back in the UK from Sierra Leone

:02:10.:02:11.

This morning, she was taken back to hospital as a patient.

:02:12.:02:18.

She spoke a year ago about how she didn't really know how herself

:02:19.:02:26.

It's taken me a good few months to recover.

:02:27.:02:33.

Hopefully this is the end of it, but you just don't know.

:02:34.:02:39.

The health board said they are pleased to report Pauline Cafferkey

:02:40.:02:47.

tested negative for the Ebola virus. She remains in hospital tonight in a

:02:48.:02:51.

stable condition but the health board said because of her medical

:02:52.:02:55.

history, it was appropriate precautionary measures were taken

:02:56.:02:58.

whilst further investigations were carried out.

:02:59.:03:02.

The Scottish government is banning the controversial practice

:03:03.:03:03.

The technique involves burning difficult to mine

:03:04.:03:09.

coal under the ground, and capturing the gas it gives off,

:03:10.:03:12.

Environmental campaigners are against the practice

:03:13.:03:17.

but the Conservatives argue it has the potential to boost the economy.

:03:18.:03:20.

Here's our Environment correspondent, Kevin Keane.

:03:21.:03:25.

It lies deep beneath the rippling waves and is causing alarm to

:03:26.:03:30.

communities along its banks but today the monster was silenced.

:03:31.:03:37.

That monster is coal, and this campaign has fought hard

:03:38.:03:39.

for a ban on the controversial technique to turn it into energy.

:03:40.:03:44.

Nobody knows what's above it and nobody can convince us how

:03:45.:03:52.

they are going to prevent any of it, the gas leaching into old mine

:03:53.:03:56.

The technique involves drilling to the coal seam and getting oxygen.

:03:57.:04:08.

That causes gas to rise back to the surface where it is captured.

:04:09.:04:12.

The amount mined here at the coal face was only the most

:04:13.:04:22.

accessible, just a small proportion of what exists.

:04:23.:04:26.

Little now remains here of the industry that these

:04:27.:04:29.

They once supported tens of thousands of jobs,

:04:30.:04:33.

and some have predicted that gasification would prompt

:04:34.:04:35.

The techniques might be different to fracking but the protests covered

:04:36.:04:44.

them all and today ministers confirmed what was a first victory

:04:45.:04:53.

It doesn't come at any price and we have to take a balanced,

:04:54.:04:57.

proportion of view, listening to the scientific evidence

:04:58.:04:59.

Underground coal gasification is very different to fracking.

:05:00.:05:12.

Last week, the first imported shipment shale gas

:05:13.:05:14.

The Scottish Conservatives say these technologies have

:05:15.:05:17.

This ban is nothing short of environmental nimbyism.

:05:18.:05:24.

It's clear that the SNP is happy to allow shale gas to be

:05:25.:05:27.

imported from Pennsylvania and America and today,

:05:28.:05:30.

when asked, there was no ban on importing any

:05:31.:05:32.

For now, one controversial technology is dead in the water

:05:33.:05:39.

but the bigger battle against fracking here

:05:40.:05:41.

A new report has warned that Scotland could lose between thirty

:05:42.:05:50.

thousand and eighty thousand jobs, as a consequence of leaving

:05:51.:05:52.

The report - from the Fraser of Allander Institute -

:05:53.:05:59.

suggests the relative impact on the rest of the UK

:06:00.:06:01.

The issue dominated questions to the First Minister,

:06:02.:06:06.

Here's our political editor Brian Taylor.

:06:07.:06:11.

Scotland trades with the European Union, and that's

:06:12.:06:14.

potentially affected by Brexit, especially if tariffs replace free

:06:15.:06:23.

The report commissioned by Holyrood puts

:06:24.:06:26.

It tracks the extent to which Scotland disengages

:06:27.:06:29.

Under the best scenario, the economy would shrink by at least 2%,

:06:30.:06:33.

Under the worst scenario, the economy would contract by 5%,

:06:34.:06:37.

The report says that Brexit may have a worse impact

:06:38.:06:45.

than on the remainder of the UK because Scotland is less exposed.

:06:46.:06:55.

It insulates Scotland slightly from the shock of Brexit.

:06:56.:06:58.

It isn't surprising when you think of the trade composition

:06:59.:07:00.

of the Scottish economy and the UK economy.

:07:01.:07:02.

Nicola Sturgeon said the report underlined the need to minimise any

:07:03.:07:05.

disruption caused by Brexit but she was challenged

:07:06.:07:07.

by Ruth Davidson of the Tories to say what she would do.

:07:08.:07:13.

My position is to face up to the realities ahead of us,

:07:14.:07:16.

to mitigate risks and take advantage of opportunities,

:07:17.:07:19.

and this Parliament now faces a choice about whether to put

:07:20.:07:23.

the lions share of its efforts into examining practical

:07:24.:07:25.

solutions or simply complaining about the results.

:07:26.:07:27.

Ms Sturgeon said the Tories brought about Brexit.

:07:28.:07:38.

Unlike Miss Davidson, my position hasn't changed.

:07:39.:07:41.

I continue to think that Brexit is a bad idea and I continue

:07:42.:07:44.

to think it's my responsibility to protect Scotland from it.

:07:45.:07:47.

These foreign workers are our neighbours,

:07:48.:07:48.

-- the idea of an audit of foreign workers.

:07:49.:08:05.

The First Minister offered a suggestion.

:08:06.:08:07.

To call on the UK Government to stop using human beings as bargaining

:08:08.:08:10.

chips and give them the guaranteed right to stay where they belong,

:08:11.:08:12.

Supporters of Brexit said it would open opportunities

:08:13.:08:16.

The report authors concede circumstances may change

:08:17.:08:23.

with passage of time and under political direction but,

:08:24.:08:25.

as of today, the Scottish take on Brexit is wholly negative.

:08:26.:08:31.

The Auditor General is warning that two Scottish health boards

:08:32.:08:34.

are facing prolonged and serious financial challenges.

:08:35.:08:39.

NHS Tayside needs to make savings of one hundred and seventy

:08:40.:08:43.

five million pounds over the next five years, while the bill

:08:44.:08:46.

for NHS-24's new IT system has soared by seventy five per cent.

:08:47.:08:52.

The financial watchdog said the difficulties faced by the boards

:08:53.:08:55.

would "continue to have an impact on the way they operate

:08:56.:08:58.

Now feeding people is an important part of the Sikh religion,

:08:59.:09:05.

and every temple offers free food to anyone who goes there.

:09:06.:09:09.

This week, Sikhs across the world are taking this principle a step

:09:10.:09:20.

further, by serving free food - known as lungar - on the streets

:09:21.:09:23.

They hope to target those in need, and to promote peace....

:09:24.:09:27.

These women in Edinburgh meet every week to prepare food for anyone

:09:28.:09:30.

who comes to the temple, regardless of faith or background.

:09:31.:09:34.

And, for the past two years, they have been making extra portions

:09:35.:09:38.

on Wednesday to take onto the streets of the capital.

:09:39.:09:42.

We make a curry with potatoes and rice.

:09:43.:09:46.

We also give hot tea, coffee, hot chocolate, sweets, biscuits.

:09:47.:09:57.

The stall is set up in the centre of Edinburgh for anyone

:09:58.:10:05.

In this Langar Week, the scene is being repeated in many countries.

:10:06.:10:15.

Some people are busy and we thought we would do Langar Week every year.

:10:16.:10:19.

We are here to help anyone in anyway.

:10:20.:10:40.

The smell and taste of the curry cheering up an autumn evening.

:10:41.:10:42.

Many people seek Langar as a welcome service.

:10:43.:10:44.

If it was not for themselves, the homeless would be hungry

:10:45.:10:53.

Even after Langar Week the Sikhs in Edinburgh are hoping to increase

:10:54.:10:59.

the amount of free street food they provide.

:11:00.:11:07.

Time now for the latest weather forecast, with Kawser.

:11:08.:11:13.

Good evening, a fine evening so far and overnight tonight we will see

:11:14.:11:22.

more cloud increasing but staying largely dry the many of us. The risk

:11:23.:11:28.

perhaps of a few showers developing across the southern borders on the

:11:29.:11:32.

South easterly wind drawing in cloud and showers on the coast. For most

:11:33.:11:37.

of the country, dry with clear spells and clear spells across the

:11:38.:11:41.

North West with temperatures dipping to four or 5 degrees with patchy fog

:11:42.:11:48.

on the great Glen area and inland. Tomorrow morning, a fair bit of

:11:49.:11:53.

cloud around, showers and die away, more sunny spells developing so 8am,

:11:54.:12:01.

the risk of showers across parts of the West Coast but in the north a

:12:02.:12:06.

good deal of sunshine to start the day, a chilly start and some

:12:07.:12:08.

sunshine for the Northern Isles. Still breezy Orkney. A wider look,

:12:09.:12:15.

much more cloud tomorrow across England and Wales and Northern

:12:16.:12:19.

Ireland, the risk of showers as the wind becomes more easterly. Across

:12:20.:12:23.

the North East the best of the sunshine and temperatures reaching

:12:24.:12:29.

up to 16 Celsius. We still have high pressure across Scandinavia bringing

:12:30.:12:32.

settled fine conditions and keeping these were the sisters at bay but

:12:33.:12:36.

the wind direction becomes more easterly with a fresher feel looking

:12:37.:12:40.

ahead to the end of the week and towards the weekend. For the

:12:41.:12:47.

weekend, sunny spells, the risk of a few showers mainly towards eastern

:12:48.:12:51.

areas and feeling cooler with temperatures down to average for the

:12:52.:12:56.

time of year. Saturday, the best of any sunshine in the west, more cloud

:12:57.:13:01.

in the east and showers will be fairly isolated and well scattered

:13:02.:13:06.

and light with sunny spells between and temperatures around 13 or 14

:13:07.:13:11.

Celsius. The wind is like inland, fresher on the coast. A similar day

:13:12.:13:13.

on Sunday. Our next update is during Breakfast

:13:14.:13:15.

at six twenty five tomorrow morning. But, from everyone on the late

:13:16.:13:21.

team here in Glasgow and around the country -

:13:22.:13:23.

goodnight.
