EU students in Scotland have been promised funding for another year.

:00:00.:00:14.

Deputy First Minister, John Swinney, who made the announcement at the SNP

:00:15.:00:17.

conference in Glasgow, also challenged UK Ministers

:00:18.:00:18.

to guarantee the right for EU students to stay

:00:19.:00:20.

This from our political editor Brian Taylor.

:00:21.:00:34.

After the Brexit vote, the university here promised their study

:00:35.:00:39.

places were secure. But still, they fret. For themselves and for those

:00:40.:00:44.

who want to follow them. A lot of my friends are EU students. So it was

:00:45.:00:51.

worrying for every single person. At the SNP conference, John Swinney

:00:52.:00:54.

promised to extend funding to EU students for another year, covering

:00:55.:01:00.

2017/18. He wants UK ministers to guarantee their right to stay,

:01:01.:01:04.

regardless of Brexit negotiations. These people are not cards to be

:01:05.:01:09.

played. They are fellow human beings, to use them as negotiating

:01:10.:01:14.

chips is be scene and this party -- obscene and this party and SNP

:01:15.:01:18.

Government will have none of it. The conference broadened the theme by

:01:19.:01:22.

welcoming the Brain family from Australia, who eventually won the

:01:23.:01:26.

right to stay in Scotland. Alex Salmond said the story showed the

:01:27.:01:30.

Conservatives' true intent. If we stick to London rule, we know

:01:31.:01:34.

exactly what lies in store for it, it will boil down to its essence, a

:01:35.:01:39.

closed, intolerant, backward looking society. Theresa May's little

England. And the new Deputy Leader had an explicit warning for Theresa

:01:45.:01:48.

May. If you continue to ignore the expressed will of the people of

:01:49.:01:53.

Scotland, if you refuse to even consider how we might protect

Scotland's place in the EU, then be in no doubt, your days as Prime

Scotland's place in the EU, then be Minister of a United Kingdom are

numbered. But does it all add up to an early independence referendum?

:02:10.:02:13.

Tell bats are not entirely -- delegates are not entirely certain.

:02:14.:02:18.

Some argue yes. The message is this: The days of Scotland being side

:02:19.:02:21.

lined is over. Remain means remain. Our voice will be heard. The next

:02:22.:02:30.

independence referendum must be one we are confident we can win when the

:02:31.:02:37.

time is right. I do urge caution, while a plaud the sentiment of the

:02:38.:02:43.

resolution, my concern is that we're tying the independence referendum

:02:44.:02:48.

solely to the trigger of Brexit. Reflecting on that dilemma, Nicola

:02:49.:02:52.

Sturgeon stoled delegates, "Welcome to my world." Welcome indeed to post

:02:53.:02:57.

Brexit politics, rarely pure, never simple.

:02:58.:03:00.

Hundreds of mourners have attended the funeral

:03:01.:03:02.

of the boxer Mike Towell, who died after a bout in Glasgow.

:03:03.:03:05.

The service at St Andrews Cathedral in Dundee was also attended

:03:06.:03:07.

It's emerged that in the weeks before the fight Mike Towell had

:03:08.:03:12.

been suffering from headaches but had put them down to stress.

:03:13.:03:16.

The family of Mike Towell say the two weeks since his death have been

:03:17.:03:31.

surreal for them. This morning, they gathered at St Andrews cathedral in

:03:32.:03:36.

the boxer's Dundee home to say their final goodbye. They weren't alone.

:03:37.:03:44.

Around 300 people joined them - friends, ordinary community members

:03:45.:03:47.

and the boxing fraternity wanting to pay their respects. Among them was

:03:48.:03:50.

Dale Evans, the fighter who delivered the blow which floored

:03:51.:03:55.

Mike Towell. He later paid his own tribute to Mike at this mural. In a

:03:56.:03:58.

statement, the family said: That spirit of generosity was also

:03:59.:04:14.

evident in the funeral service. One of his friends spoke. He was very

:04:15.:04:18.

humorous. He talked warmly about Mike's life, the type of upbringing

:04:19.:04:23.

he had. He was a guy with a great sense of humour, a guy who was very,

:04:24.:04:27.

very much loved among friends and family and the boxing community

:04:28.:04:32.

generally. The funeral's not the only way Dundee is remembering Mike

:04:33.:04:36.

Towell. There's a huge amount of respect and affection for Mike

:04:37.:04:41.

Towell and his family here in Dundee, but questions remain about

:04:42.:04:44.

the state of his health in the lead up to that fatal fight. Mike died

:04:45.:04:53.

after his life support machine was switched off following his collapse

:04:54.:04:58.

in this fight last month. It later emerged he was suffering headaches

:04:59.:05:02.

during training. What is clear, is that his family is devastated, but

:05:03.:05:07.

they say they'll also smile every day at his memory.

:05:08.:05:11.

The two-year-old girl, who was killed after being hit

:05:12.:05:13.

by a car in Perthshire, has been named as Harlow Edwards

:05:14.:05:16.

Her six-year-old brother and 17-year-old sister were also hit,

:05:17.:05:21.

when the car mounted the pavement, after being in a collision

:05:22.:05:24.

They're both in hospital with serious injuries.

:05:25.:05:28.

The accident happened on the A94 yesterday afternoon.

:05:29.:05:30.

Police say they're very concerned for the welfare of a woman from Ayr

:05:31.:05:33.

who's gone missing with her two children.

:05:34.:05:35.

29-year-old Farah Fadli, who's also known as Farah Gillespie,

:05:36.:05:38.

was least seen by a friend on Wednesday morning.

:05:39.:05:40.

It's believed she was with her ten-year-old son McKenzie

:05:41.:05:43.

In just over a week, the Burrell Collection in Glasgow

:05:44.:05:50.

will close its doors for four years for a multi-million

:05:51.:05:53.

While the A-listed building is refurbished, the collection

:05:54.:05:58.

of more than 9,000 artefacts will be moved.

:05:59.:06:01.

Our arts correspondent Pauline McLean reports.

:06:02.:06:06.

I've got a beautiful and unique carpet fragment from Afghanistan

:06:07.:06:16.

from the ancient city of Herat. It was made there by weavers in 1610

:06:17.:06:25.

AD. Deep in the basement of the Burrell collection lie many

:06:26.:06:28.

treasures which have never seen the light of day. It's lived in this

:06:29.:06:33.

stores for very many years. We're hoping in the new refushish Burrell

:06:34.:06:36.

stores for very many years. We're it will apair in a story about fig

:06:37.:06:42.

ative imagery in Islamic art, is it permissible or forbidden given it's

:06:43.:06:47.

a controversial issue. Less than a fifth of the collection is out on

:06:48.:06:52.

public display. In the new building it will be nearer 90%, including the

:06:53.:06:56.

basement, which will be open to the public for the first time. This is

:06:57.:07:01.

the biggest undertaking since the Burrell collection opened in 1983.

:07:02.:07:06.

It must be great satisfaction to you to see this building open and its

:07:07.:07:11.

treasures so well displayed. The parkland site, far from city centre

:07:12.:07:14.

pollution, a condition of the bequest. Ascy shipping magnate, Sir

:07:15.:07:20.

Whirl Burrell was concerned about keeping his treasures safe. It was

:07:21.:07:24.

why he insisted it never tour abroad. The City argued this was

:07:25.:07:29.

outdated. After a lengthy legal battle overturned the condition.

:07:30.:07:33.

While the Burrell is closed, key art works will tour the world, raising

:07:34.:07:37.

the collection's profile as well as funds. This has been a great pivotal

:07:38.:07:42.

achievement for us. It means that we're really released on the world

:07:43.:07:46.

stage now for the first time. That means it encourages great

:07:47.:07:49.

collaboration with international partners, such as the museum of fine

:07:50.:07:55.

art in Houston, where four of our pictures will go on display

:07:56.:07:59.

imminently. Most of the 9,000 artefacts will go into storage,

:08:00.:08:02.

imminently. Most of the 9,000 carefully wrapped and boxed and

:08:03.:08:06.

catalogued in the coming months. Ready to go back on display in the

:08:07.:08:09.

new Burrell museum in 2020. Let's get the weekend weather

:08:10.:08:13.

outlook now, from Judith. Good evening. We did actually see

:08:14.:08:21.

something sunny coming through towards the end of the day.

:08:22.:08:27.

As far as tonight's concerned, we have a weather front introducing

:08:28.:08:32.

outbreaks of rain across Eastern Scotland, mainly dry in the west. It

:08:33.:08:35.

will be windy particularly across the far north. Tomorrow it's a wet

:08:36.:08:40.

and windy start for many of us. Where we're not seeing the rain, it

:08:41.:08:47.

will spread to western areas, accompanied by strong, gusty, east

:08:48.:08:54.

or south-easterly winds. It stays dry for Shetland tomorrow, though.

:08:55.:08:58.

For the rest of the UK, we see the rain across Northern Ireland. That

:08:59.:09:01.

moves away northwards. Further south, there's a lot of dry weather.

:09:02.:09:04.

Temperatures getting milder in the south. The winds here go to the

:09:05.:09:11.

south, 18 at best. Showers band together across south-west Wales,

:09:12.:09:14.

heavy down pours in the mix. Back here in Scotland, we see highs of 15

:09:15.:09:18.

Celsius, when the sun comes out. Drier conditions feeding into the

:09:19.:09:22.

south-west. Still a brisk easterly wind taking the edge off the values.

:09:23.:09:27.

Shetland staying dry with sunshine wind taking the edge off the values.

:09:28.:09:34.

further north. Not looking too bad. The rain moves north into the

:09:35.:09:38.

evening, brighter for the south. The rain clears away. Low pressure never

:09:39.:09:42.

too far away. We will see a number of showers courtesy of that low

:09:43.:09:46.

pressure on Saturday. Still a lot of bright, sunny weather with a fresh

:09:47.:09:48.

southerly wind. From everyone on the late

:09:49.:09:50.
