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

:00:00.:00:07.

The Scottish Government throws its weight behind

:00:08.:00:09.

It described the third runway at Heathrow as the best for Scotland.

:00:10.:00:28.

It is expected decision by the UK Government will be made this month.

:00:29.:00:34.

They may be over 400 miles away, but the future of Heathrow and Gatwick

:00:35.:00:38.

Airport does matter to the Scottish economy. Today, the Scottish

:00:39.:00:41.

Government said they would back Heathrow, as they secured a deal to

:00:42.:00:46.

secure jobs and growth here. Increased flights, more regular,

:00:47.:00:50.

easier to get to London. He is London and the rest of the world to

:00:51.:00:54.

get us. Of course, we want additional direct flights Scotland,

:00:55.:00:59.

but people are interested in connectivity. The Scottish

:01:00.:01:03.

Government and Heathrow have signed a memorandum of understanding. This

:01:04.:01:10.

includes... But over several decades. And ?200 million of

:01:11.:01:18.

construction related work. Prestwick airport is helping to increase its

:01:19.:01:21.

role as a cargo hub. That means shipping components and machines

:01:22.:01:25.

made by Scottish companies down to London. Aberdeen and Inverness also

:01:26.:01:30.

want better access to Heathrow for worldwide flights. We're hoping to

:01:31.:01:34.

have access ability for the regions, regions like ours will be competing

:01:35.:01:38.

for additional slots at a reduced rate, which is what Heathrow have

:01:39.:01:42.

undertaken to do. For us today, we have a single flight to and from

:01:43.:01:45.

Heathrow. I'm hopeful that providing Heathrow gets the go-ahead, we could

:01:46.:01:50.

be up to perhaps two flight stray within as many years. But everyone

:01:51.:01:55.

is happy. Rival Gatwick and its sister business say the deal will

:01:56.:02:00.

make passengers more reliant on London. It has been put off long

:02:01.:02:04.

enough. Whatever the decision is, whether Heathrow or Gatwick, we need

:02:05.:02:08.

to make sure that Scotland has the connectivity and flights and

:02:09.:02:12.

services into those airports to allow our residents to benefit from

:02:13.:02:17.

the investment and expansion. Other campaigners are sceptical about the

:02:18.:02:21.

boost to business. And fear the cost to the environment. I think there is

:02:22.:02:24.

a great overestimate of the number of jobs and economic benefit of

:02:25.:02:28.

airport expansion, and completely ignoring the climate change impacts.

:02:29.:02:32.

The Scottish Government have decided what they think is the best plan for

:02:33.:02:36.

this country. A decision is expected in around ten days.

:02:37.:02:48.

The time for Brexit is unclear, but the city of Glasgow has commissioned

:02:49.:02:55.

a report highlighting the challenges and opportunities of Brexit. It also

:02:56.:03:03.

has a wish list for politicians. The UK as a whole has decided to get out

:03:04.:03:09.

of the European Union. That was the result. Do we know yet what it

:03:10.:03:15.

means? This morning, Glasgow's City Council published a report on the

:03:16.:03:18.

challenges and opportunities facing the city after Brexit. The most

:03:19.:03:22.

important success is the potential loss of EU funds, totalling ?780

:03:23.:03:29.

million, which pay for training, development and social funds. They

:03:30.:03:36.

want a guaranteed by Westminster and Holyrood, but is that likely at a

:03:37.:03:41.

time of political uncertainty? Let us not nasal gave about

:03:42.:03:45.

constitutional arrangements. We need practical, pragmatic proposals to

:03:46.:03:48.

give confidence back to the business community. Bringing investment

:03:49.:03:53.

forward early, finding ways we can make sure that European structural

:03:54.:03:57.

funds are still kept in the Glasgow economy. The report's also calls on

:03:58.:04:03.

the ?1 billion city deal to be exonerated. Fast forwarding the

:04:04.:04:07.

proposed rail link to Glasgow airport. Glasgow's strengths include

:04:08.:04:11.

its retail sector, second only to London's West End. But there is fear

:04:12.:04:17.

that any future trade tariffs will make imports more expensive.

:04:18.:04:21.

Although a weaker pound could bring more tourist shoppers. Business

:04:22.:04:25.

leaders fear that their concerns are not being taken seriously. At the

:04:26.:04:28.

very best, we have to continue to make the arguments. We feel at the

:04:29.:04:33.

moment as if the government has taken a slightly anti-business

:04:34.:04:36.

perspective at Westminster. That is incredibly dangerous position to be

:04:37.:04:40.

in. And it is not just the tourist trade that may go elsewhere.

:04:41.:04:49.

Academic leaders are also worried. They say 15,000 foreign students are

:04:50.:04:52.

in the city, more than 6000 of those are from the EU as well as more than

:04:53.:04:56.

1000 staff. And ?25 million worth of grants from the EU go to Strathclyde

:04:57.:05:00.

University alone. Cancel and business people know that they will

:05:01.:05:04.

have to work hard to protect Glasgow during Brexit. They also know that

:05:05.:05:08.

other cities across the UK are clamouring just as loudly.

:05:09.:05:17.

Police searching for a 15-year-old girl on the banks of say a baby has

:05:18.:05:25.

been found. She was last seen at power. Police say -- body has been

:05:26.:05:35.

found. Leaked documents say Royal Bank of Scotland try profit from

:05:36.:05:42.

ailing businesses. They say the bank profited from ailing businesses.

:05:43.:05:49.

Staff could then gain cash from squeezing the firms in what was

:05:50.:05:55.

called a dash for cash. It has been denied that they

:05:56.:05:59.

How important is your mental health compared to your physical health?

:06:00.:06:08.

If you think it's just as important but you don't take the time to look

:06:09.:06:12.

A survey to mark World Mental Health day suggests a significant

:06:13.:06:16.

number of us don't look after our psychological well-being.

:06:17.:06:18.

So, addressing that is the message of a Scotland-wider arts

:06:19.:06:20.

Our arts correspondent Pauline McLean reports.

:06:21.:06:23.

Experts in a short trousers is a piece of theatre for five rods and

:06:24.:06:27.

their families. These aliens have piece of theatre for five rods and

:06:28.:06:33.

been crash landing into spaces across Scotland -- for

:06:34.:06:37.

five-year-olds. Yeah it is lovely to come from such a young age. It is

:06:38.:06:41.

about finding spaces to realise that people are different. And busy we

:06:42.:06:45.

are aliens, so very different. But also space to recognise what people

:06:46.:06:52.

are strong at. What began ten years ago is a small film Showcase has

since become a major festival. Alongside films are theatre,

exhibition and theatre. And shows all across the country. Among them a

1960s. The band have set themselves that back then, there wasn't a great

deal known about a lot of these issues. And people are now much more

:07:19.:07:24.

aware and knowledgeable. And in my opinion, have did not get the help

:07:25.:07:30.

and treatment they needed. Today, that has changed, not least thanks

:07:31.:07:34.

to festivals like this where mental health can be discussed openly. It

:07:35.:07:40.

is much more talked about in popular culture. A lot of TV shows deal with

:07:41.:07:44.

mental health very well and sensitively now. We'll bring

:07:45.:07:48.

together organisations and artists and individuals that might not

:07:49.:07:51.

otherwise worked together. It is quite a powerful thing. But there is

:07:52.:07:55.

still some way to go, although the vast majority of Scots consider

:07:56.:08:00.

their mental health as important as physical well-being. The message is

:08:01.:08:06.

finding the time to do anything about it. Find the time, and use it

representing your country's equally important. Scotland phase is like

:11:10.:11:14.

inside with no points for their opening two games, and an even more

:11:15.:11:18.

desperate need of a victory than these Scotland players. Let us get

:11:19.:11:25.

the weather now. We have had a fine day and evening so far, especially

:11:26.:11:28.

further across the West, where we have some clear spells and lovely

:11:29.:11:32.

sunsets sent in from our weather watchers. This is from Angus. Across

:11:33.:11:38.

the East, more in the way of cloud building and we start to see more in

:11:39.:11:42.

the way of showers keeping in, too. All away from Orkney, the coastline

:11:43.:11:46.

and down to the Borders. One or two is running across to Glasgow as

:11:47.:11:49.

well. The best of clear spells across the North West. Temperatures

:11:50.:11:55.

could close to freezing, maybe some frost and frost and mist and fog.

:11:56.:11:59.

Elsewhere, temperatures could climb up to five or 10 degrees. Tomorrow

:12:00.:12:04.

morning, a cloudy start from many of us with showers still around. There

:12:05.:12:08.

will be some sunny spells, too, across the Galloway coast. One or

:12:09.:12:13.

two showers at around 80 towards the east. Temperatures nine or 10

:12:14.:12:19.

degrees. The best of the sunshine -- at around eight a. Add the rest of

:12:20.:12:27.

the UK, those showers line all the way across the East Coast. Further

:12:28.:12:31.

towards the west, from the south-west, Northern Ireland and

:12:32.:12:35.

western parts of Scotland. Sunshine and temperatures here could climb up

:12:36.:12:38.

to 14 or 15 degrees. Towards the east, cooler as the winds start

:12:39.:12:42.

increase. That area of high pressure still with us across Scandinavia.

:12:43.:12:46.

The wind coming from East draws in more moisture from the North Sea.

:12:47.:12:51.

More in the way of showers. The wins will start to strengthen on

:12:52.:13:01.

Wednesday and Thursday, making it feel fresher. For Wednesday, those

:13:02.:13:03.

showers still with us further towards the East with a few

:13:04.:13:05.

spreading in across parts of the central lowlands. Towards the West,

:13:06.:13:07.

the best of any brighter spells. Temperatures 12 to maybe 14 Celsius.

:13:08.:13:11.

With the strength of that wind, it will feel fresher, especially for

:13:12.:13:15.

coastal areas, up over hills as well. Some chilly nights to come to.

:13:16.:13:20.

You can get the rest of the details on the BBC weather website with the
