Here, on BBC One, it's time for the news where you are.
A sandwich shop owner has been jailed for at least 27 years
for the murder of 15-year-old Paige Doherty.
John Leathem carried out a frenzied knife attack on the teenager
in the back of his shop in Clydebank inflicting more than 140 injuries.
Paige's mother described Leatham as a monster who had carried out
From the High Court in Glasgow, Aileen Clarke reports.
A family left heartbroken and devastated by the loss
of their daughter, but today they said they saw justice
Today we see a monster put behind bars for the unthinkable
brutal crime he committed against our daughter Paige.
A beautiful 15-year-old with a full life ahead of her and a mass
of family and friends left to carry on with her no longer here.
There is no sentence high enough to justify what has happened,
but we can now say there is one less evil man in this world,
which then makes it that bit more safer for our kids to grow up in.
John Leathem ran a deli in Clydebank.
Here he is opening up on a Saturday morning in March.
CCTV outside shows Paige Doherty popping in for a roll and sausage
She was on her way to her Saturday hairdressing job but she didn't
Within ten minutes of her buying that roll, John Leathem had
taken her through to the back and killed her.
He stabbed Paige more than 146 times.
CCTV showed him in a white T-shirt and trainers, running to a shop
next door to buy wipes and bin bags to clean up.
He went out to his car and opened the boot.
The next thing he did was carry Paige's body out
He put her in the boot and closed it.
Two days later, he dumped Paige's body just off this busy dual
The only explanation that Leathem offered the court for that savage
attack he launched on Paige just moments after she got
here was that she wanted to work here and they had fallen out
about it, but he didn't tell that to the police and the police heard
nothing from Paige's friends or family to back that up.
What he did tell the police, however, was that he was positive
they would not find any trace of Paige's blood here.
Well, he was wrong, they did, in the shop and also in the boot
No evidence of any motive has been put before me to explain
You must have struck the victim in excess of 146 times with a knife,
which on your account just happened to be handy in the back room
What you did was truly reprehensible.
It is impossible to comprehend how an apparently happily married man,
with a young child, who is running a successful business,
is capable of such an horrific level of violence.
After Lady Rae sentenced Leathem to a minimum term
of 27 years in jail, the court room which
Friends and family of Paige shouted "beast" and "monster" and one woman
relative banged on the side of the dock screaming,
Leathem didn't look up, he didn't look at them,
he kept his eyes on the floor as he was led downstairs
There's a huge piece missing in our family that can

and generous wee soul she was to the mature young woman

People in Scotland are to be asked to look out for signs that a person
has been trafficked and also consider whether goods they're
buying have been made by someone forced to work against their will.
It's part of a new strategy to address the problem
as figures show an increase in human trafficking here.

This man was trafficked to Scotland from Vietnam this year
after his brother was involved in an investment that went wrong.

The Scottish Government want people to wake up to the fact that human
It could be in remote rural areas or in high streets like this one.
Last year there were 145 victims identified, a 30% increase
Now they want customers to think about whether there could be
victims of trafficking in their local nail bar,
in their local shops, or indeed, in their car wash.
A key part of this strategy is to raise the whole issue
of human trafficking into the public's consciousness.
Many people will think this is something that doesn't affect
them or isn't happening within their community,
What we want to do is make people more aware of the risk of human
trafficking and if they have information or suspect
it is happening, then to share that concern with the police so it can
The strategy says there is a strong presumption against prosecution
where victims have been forced to commit crimes such as working
in cannabis factories, however the BBC understands some
victims have faced charges regardless.
The strategy is not enough in itself.
Awareness raising is a necessary first step, but there
By that I mean that the strategy needs to lead to actions
in our public services to identify and root out trafficking
as well as within our communities as well.
Without that whole society effort and that relentless proactivity
in our communities and public services, then we won't get
underneath this and we won't be able to identify those who really
Human trafficking is set to increase further because of
The new strategy has been welcomed but experts say everyone involved
needs to ensure its being implemented on the ground.

Let's get the weather now from Judith.
Thank you, Jackie. So far, it has been the season of mists and mellow
fruitfulness. Things are set to change over the next few days. The
high pressure which has been responsible for the dry weather over
Scandinavia shrinks away and we will see will pressure pulling him from
Spain and France, bringing outbreaks of rain and windy conditions as we
head into the rest of the week and the weekend. There are signs of
something more settled into next week. As far as tonight is
concerned, right across the West of Scotland with clear skies,
particularly for Shetland and the North West with showers coming in
from the East. Tomorrow will start dry in the West and South. Clearer
skies across the North West and possibly a touch of frost first
thing, so quite chilly. The showers beginning in the South East.
Temperatures will feel chilly with those easterly winds coming from the
North Sea and introducing some cooler and cold here. It has been
like that across the North with lower temperatures. Lighter winds
for Shetland and it looks to be staying fair tomorrow with light
winds compared to what the rest of us will see. The East of Scotland
will see those showers pick up during the course of the day. Fife
and Tayside will get the heavier showers. Very few in the West. The
best of the sunshine is across the West and North West Highlands.
Further for Northern Ireland and a lot of the UK tomorrow, although we
will start to see sunny and dry conditions feeding across the South.
Brisk winds across the East coast feeding though showers and it will
feel chilly everywhere across the board. Highs of 14 or 15 Celsius at
best. Similar values for Scotland with the wind is taking the edge of
the temperatures. Showers for the East of Scotland, drier in the West
tomorrow, and Friday, we are looking at a windy day with possible gales
up towards the North East corner. Heavy showers here as well. Drier
across the South and far West and it will feel cooler. That is your
forecast. Our next update is during Breakfast
tomorrow morning. But from everyone on the
late team, goodnight.
