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

:00:00.:00:08.

A sandwich shop owner has been jailed for at least 27 years

:00:09.:00:12.

for the murder of 15-year-old Paige Doherty.

:00:13.:00:16.

John Leathem carried out a frenzied knife attack on the teenager

:00:17.:00:19.

in the back of his shop in Clydebank inflicting more than 140 injuries.

:00:20.:00:22.

Paige's mother described Leatham as a monster who had carried out

:00:23.:00:25.

From the High Court in Glasgow, Aileen Clarke reports.

:00:26.:00:33.

A family left heartbroken and devastated by the loss

:00:34.:00:35.

of their daughter, but today they said they saw justice

:00:36.:00:37.

Today we see a monster put behind bars for the unthinkable

:00:38.:00:44.

brutal crime he committed against our daughter Paige.

:00:45.:00:46.

A beautiful 15-year-old with a full life ahead of her and a mass

:00:47.:00:49.

of family and friends left to carry on with her no longer here.

:00:50.:00:52.

There is no sentence high enough to justify what has happened,

:00:53.:00:55.

but we can now say there is one less evil man in this world,

:00:56.:00:58.

which then makes it that bit more safer for our kids to grow up in.

:00:59.:01:04.

John Leathem ran a deli in Clydebank.

:01:05.:01:06.

Here he is opening up on a Saturday morning in March.

:01:07.:01:09.

CCTV outside shows Paige Doherty popping in for a roll and sausage

:01:10.:01:12.

She was on her way to her Saturday hairdressing job but she didn't

:01:13.:01:17.

Within ten minutes of her buying that roll, John Leathem had

:01:18.:01:22.

taken her through to the back and killed her.

:01:23.:01:26.

He stabbed Paige more than 146 times.

:01:27.:01:29.

CCTV showed him in a white T-shirt and trainers, running to a shop

:01:30.:01:33.

next door to buy wipes and bin bags to clean up.

:01:34.:01:36.

He went out to his car and opened the boot.

:01:37.:01:38.

The next thing he did was carry Paige's body out

:01:39.:01:41.

He put her in the boot and closed it.

:01:42.:01:46.

Two days later, he dumped Paige's body just off this busy dual

:01:47.:01:49.

The only explanation that Leathem offered the court for that savage

:01:50.:01:58.

attack he launched on Paige just moments after she got

:01:59.:02:00.

here was that she wanted to work here and they had fallen out

:02:01.:02:04.

about it, but he didn't tell that to the police and the police heard

:02:05.:02:07.

nothing from Paige's friends or family to back that up.

:02:08.:02:11.

What he did tell the police, however, was that he was positive

:02:12.:02:14.

they would not find any trace of Paige's blood here.

:02:15.:02:18.

Well, he was wrong, they did, in the shop and also in the boot

:02:19.:02:21.

No evidence of any motive has been put before me to explain

:02:22.:02:29.

You must have struck the victim in excess of 146 times with a knife,

:02:30.:02:39.

which on your account just happened to be handy in the back room

:02:40.:02:42.

What you did was truly reprehensible.

:02:43.:02:52.

It is impossible to comprehend how an apparently happily married man,

:02:53.:02:56.

with a young child, who is running a successful business,

:02:57.:02:59.

is capable of such an horrific level of violence.

:03:00.:03:07.

After Lady Rae sentenced Leathem to a minimum term

:03:08.:03:09.

of 27 years in jail, the court room which

:03:10.:03:12.

Friends and family of Paige shouted "beast" and "monster" and one woman

:03:13.:03:18.

relative banged on the side of the dock screaming,

:03:19.:03:21.

Leathem didn't look up, he didn't look at them,

:03:22.:03:26.

he kept his eyes on the floor as he was led downstairs

:03:27.:03:29.

There's a huge piece missing in our family that can

:03:30.:03:35.

I am thankful for the 15 years we had with Paige, from the kind

:03:36.:03:39.

and generous wee soul she was to the mature young woman

:03:40.:03:42.

She may not be with us any more but she will live

:03:43.:03:46.

on through her brothers and sister and through all the

:03:47.:03:48.

People in Scotland are to be asked to look out for signs that a person

:03:49.:03:58.

has been trafficked and also consider whether goods they're

:03:59.:04:00.

buying have been made by someone forced to work against their will.

:04:01.:04:04.

It's part of a new strategy to address the problem

:04:05.:04:06.

as figures show an increase in human trafficking here.

:04:07.:04:11.

More from our political correspondent, Lucy Adams.

:04:12.:04:17.

This man was trafficked to Scotland from Vietnam this year

:04:18.:04:21.

after his brother was involved in an investment that went wrong.

:04:22.:04:24.

TRANSLATION: The gangster said they would kill my family

:04:25.:04:27.

if we could not pay back my brother's debt.

:04:28.:04:31.

My brother was killed as a warning, and for my family's safety,

:04:32.:04:34.

The Scottish Government want people to wake up to the fact that human

:04:35.:04:40.

It could be in remote rural areas or in high streets like this one.

:04:41.:04:46.

Last year there were 145 victims identified, a 30% increase

:04:47.:04:49.

Now they want customers to think about whether there could be

:04:50.:04:55.

victims of trafficking in their local nail bar,

:04:56.:04:58.

in their local shops, or indeed, in their car wash.

:04:59.:05:02.

A key part of this strategy is to raise the whole issue

:05:03.:05:05.

of human trafficking into the public's consciousness.

:05:06.:05:09.

Many people will think this is something that doesn't affect

:05:10.:05:11.

them or isn't happening within their community,

:05:12.:05:13.

What we want to do is make people more aware of the risk of human

:05:14.:05:19.

trafficking and if they have information or suspect

:05:20.:05:21.

it is happening, then to share that concern with the police so it can

:05:22.:05:25.

The strategy says there is a strong presumption against prosecution

:05:26.:05:31.

where victims have been forced to commit crimes such as working

:05:32.:05:34.

in cannabis factories, however the BBC understands some

:05:35.:05:38.

victims have faced charges regardless.

:05:39.:05:42.

The strategy is not enough in itself.

:05:43.:05:44.

Awareness raising is a necessary first step, but there

:05:45.:05:46.

By that I mean that the strategy needs to lead to actions

:05:47.:05:50.

in our public services to identify and root out trafficking

:05:51.:05:53.

as well as within our communities as well.

:05:54.:05:55.

Without that whole society effort and that relentless proactivity

:05:56.:05:59.

in our communities and public services, then we won't get

:06:00.:06:02.

underneath this and we won't be able to identify those who really

:06:03.:06:05.

Human trafficking is set to increase further because of

:06:06.:06:08.

The new strategy has been welcomed but experts say everyone involved

:06:09.:06:18.

needs to ensure its being implemented on the ground.

:06:19.:06:20.

Donald Trump's two Scottish golf courses together lost

:06:21.:06:27.

about ?9.5 million last year, according to accounts filed

:06:28.:06:30.

The Trump Turnberry golf resort in Ayrshire, which the US

:06:31.:06:36.

presidential hopeful bought for an undisclosed sum in 2014,

:06:37.:06:38.

Mr Trump's other Scottish course - Menie in Aberdeenshire -

:06:39.:06:45.

The American has said he would invest ?200 million

:06:46.:06:49.

in Turnberry, having bought the resort from

:06:50.:06:50.

NHS Lothian says there is one more confirmed case of measles

:06:51.:06:58.

The total number of patients in the current minor

:06:59.:07:03.

Most of those affected by the virus are students

:07:04.:07:06.

at Edinburgh University, where special clinics are being set

:07:07.:07:08.

up for anyone who may not have had both doses of the MMR vaccine

:07:09.:07:11.

Output from the Scottish economy grew by 0.4% in the second

:07:12.:07:19.

quarter of this year, according to the latest statistics.

:07:20.:07:23.

That's compared with a growth of 0.7% for the UK

:07:24.:07:26.

It follows no growth in Scotland over the first

:07:27.:07:32.

Rail passengers have been warned to expect disruption ahead

:07:33.:07:37.

of engineering work getting under way across the network.

:07:38.:07:42.

ScotRail said some services were being cancelled, while many

:07:43.:07:44.

Earlier I spoke to our reporter Andrew Black

:07:45.:07:51.

about what the engineering work was for.

:07:52.:08:02.

Scotland is promising a revolution in real services and it wants to

:08:03.:08:08.

improve and make vastly improved services. Firstly it is saying that

:08:09.:08:14.

passengers will have to experience some pain. The rail operator ball

:08:15.:08:17.

start the latest round of engineering works which will affect

:08:18.:08:21.

services in Central Scotland, including the services which runs

:08:22.:08:25.

here from Glasgow Queen Street station. That begins on weekends

:08:26.:08:32.

from the 22nd of October and continues into the 20th of November.

:08:33.:08:38.

There were no direct trains between Glasgow and Dunblane and Edinburgh

:08:39.:08:42.

and stumbling, that is one of the big changes but other changes exist

:08:43.:08:46.

as well and some services will be cancelled, some will be replaced by

:08:47.:08:50.

buses and it will probably need tuning systems at Key stations as

:08:51.:08:56.

well. ScotRail have suggested passengers look at the alternative

:08:57.:09:00.

pin cable that has been put in place before travelling. Earlier I spoke

:09:01.:09:04.

to the boss of ScotRail and he told me that the work they were carrying

:09:05.:09:10.

it was vital. We have got a huge workload that must be completed to

:09:11.:09:15.

bring in this faster, greener and longer electric trains next year.

:09:16.:09:18.

bring in this faster, greener and Part of this is the new -- the

:09:19.:09:20.

renewal of tracks and it will happen Part of this is the new -- the

:09:21.:09:24.

over the weekends. The electrification of the line is also

:09:25.:09:28.

necessary. We would ask customers to be patient with us, we understand

:09:29.:09:34.

this has a negative impact on some journeys. The Scottish Government

:09:35.:09:38.

has said that ScotRail's performance this year has not quite been at the

:09:39.:09:42.

level that is expected and that is the backdrop to the announcement

:09:43.:09:50.

today. The Dutch owners have been running the service since last year

:09:51.:09:52.

and says it is determined to make improvements. On the engineering

:09:53.:09:57.

works and ends today, Scott Kriel know that some people will not be

:09:58.:10:00.

works and ends today, Scott Kriel happy but insist this work will

:10:01.:10:04.

transform the rail network in Scotland into one of the best.

:10:05.:10:09.

Passengers will need to endure some short-term pain for long-term gain,

:10:10.:10:11.

the tellers. -- they tell us. A man who died after falling

:10:12.:10:18.

during a climb on the north face of Ben Nevis has been named

:10:19.:10:21.

as Fraser Campbell He was injured on Friday

:10:22.:10:23.

while climbing with another man and airlifted from the scene

:10:24.:10:26.

to hosptal early on Saturday after what rescuers

:10:27.:10:29.

described as a "difficult The next Moderator of the Church

:10:30.:10:30.

of Scotland's General Assembly has called for the Church to respond

:10:31.:10:34.

to changes in society and help bridge gaps between individuals,

:10:35.:10:37.

communities and nations. The Reverend Dr Derek Browning,

:10:38.:10:39.

a minister at Morningside Parish Church in Edinburgh,

:10:40.:10:41.

will take up his position next year. The charge is no longer the same as

:10:42.:10:47.

it was ten, 20, 30, 40 years ago and one of the things I find exciting is

:10:48.:10:50.

the way that the church is embracing different communities, different

:10:51.:10:54.

ways of doing worship but also doing things that people find valuable. We

:10:55.:10:59.

have to be a church that this fit for purpose for the 21st-century.

Plans to rebuild the main stand at Tynecastle football stadium have

:11:04.:11:06.

been approved by Edinburgh City Council.

:11:07.:11:07.

?11 million will be spent on the upgrade at the Hearts ground,

:11:08.:11:10.

which will increase its capacity to more than 20,000.

:11:11.:11:12.

The club hopes work will start next month and be finished

:11:13.:11:15.

Let's get the weather now from Judith.

:11:16.:11:20.

Thank you, Jackie. So far, it has been the season of mists and mellow

:11:21.:11:27.

fruitfulness. Things are set to change over the next few days. The

:11:28.:11:31.

high pressure which has been responsible for the dry weather over

:11:32.:11:35.

Scandinavia shrinks away and we will see will pressure pulling him from

:11:36.:11:38.

Spain and France, bringing outbreaks of rain and windy conditions as we

:11:39.:11:42.

head into the rest of the week and the weekend. There are signs of

:11:43.:11:46.

something more settled into next week. As far as tonight is

:11:47.:11:50.

concerned, right across the West of Scotland with clear skies,

:11:51.:12:00.

particularly for Shetland and the North West with showers coming in

:12:01.:12:02.

from the East. Tomorrow will start dry in the West and South. Clearer

:12:03.:12:06.

skies across the North West and possibly a touch of frost first

:12:07.:12:08.

thing, so quite chilly. The showers beginning in the South East.

:12:09.:12:12.

Temperatures will feel chilly with those easterly winds coming from the

:12:13.:12:15.

North Sea and introducing some cooler and cold here. It has been

:12:16.:12:20.

like that across the North with lower temperatures. Lighter winds

:12:21.:12:23.

for Shetland and it looks to be staying fair tomorrow with light

:12:24.:12:26.

winds compared to what the rest of us will see. The East of Scotland

:12:27.:12:30.

will see those showers pick up during the course of the day. Fife

:12:31.:12:35.

and Tayside will get the heavier showers. Very few in the West. The

:12:36.:12:39.

best of the sunshine is across the West and North West Highlands.

:12:40.:12:45.

Further for Northern Ireland and a lot of the UK tomorrow, although we

:12:46.:12:48.

will start to see sunny and dry conditions feeding across the South.

:12:49.:12:52.

Brisk winds across the East coast feeding though showers and it will

:12:53.:12:56.

feel chilly everywhere across the board. Highs of 14 or 15 Celsius at

:12:57.:13:02.

best. Similar values for Scotland with the wind is taking the edge of

:13:03.:13:07.

the temperatures. Showers for the East of Scotland, drier in the West

:13:08.:13:11.

tomorrow, and Friday, we are looking at a windy day with possible gales

:13:12.:13:15.

up towards the North East corner. Heavy showers here as well. Drier

:13:16.:13:20.

across the South and far West and it will feel cooler. That is your

:13:21.:13:24.

forecast. Our next update is during Breakfast

:13:25.:13:26.

tomorrow morning. But from everyone on the

:13:27.:13:29.

late team, goodnight.
