A woman police officer is in intensive care and a male

:00:15.:00:20.

colleague is in hospital with serious injuries

:00:21.:00:21.

after they were deliberately run over by a car in Glasgow.

:00:22.:00:25.

Detectives say they're treating the incident as attempted murder.

:00:26.:00:29.

It happened late last night in the Knightswood area when the two

:00:30.:00:32.

officers stopped a car to speak to the occupants.

:00:33.:00:34.

A police jacket and parts of uniform mark the spot

:00:35.:00:41.

where two officers, a 30-year-old woman and her

:00:42.:00:43.

30-year-old male colleague, were seriously injured

:00:44.:00:47.

The officers as had been called here and stopped a car to speak to

:00:48.:00:58.

The car then reversed, struck them both, and

:00:59.:01:01.

drove out of the street, hitting other cars as it left.

:01:02.:01:03.

Neighbours on this quiet cul-de-sac were awoken by

:01:04.:01:05.

Today, there was shock as they learned what had

:01:06.:01:08.

happened, and great sympathy for the injured officers.

:01:09.:01:12.

Everyone has been concerned, obviously myself as well,

:01:13.:01:16.

they are the people that protect us, and how

:01:17.:01:19.

safe are the rest of the people, you know?

:01:20.:01:22.

A blue Nissan Qashqai was later found burnt out.

:01:23.:01:29.

Police think three or four people were in the car when it hit

:01:30.:01:32.

And are appealing for help to find those responsible.

:01:33.:01:42.

We want to find the people responsible, because these

:01:43.:01:44.

two officers were going about their employment,

:01:45.:01:46.

keeping people safe, doing their policing duties and were

:01:47.:01:50.

callously ran over and seriously injured, both of them hospitalised.

:01:51.:01:56.

This afternoon, the damaged patrol car was removed from the scene.

:01:57.:02:00.

The two injured officers are recovering

:02:01.:02:04.

in hospital with injuries said to be non-life-threatening.

:02:05.:02:10.

The First Minister has described Brexit talks with Theresa May

:02:11.:02:12.

and the other devolved nations as "deeply frustrating".

:02:13.:02:15.

The leaders of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland said

:02:16.:02:17.

they had been left no clearer about how the UK Government

:02:18.:02:20.

The Prime Minister said she would strike a bespoke Brexit

:02:21.:02:23.

From Westminster, here's our political

:02:24.:02:26.

Brisk and businesslike ahead of the Brexit talks,

:02:27.:02:42.

four months to the day since David Cameron resigned after

:02:43.:02:44.

the vote to leave the EU, Nicola Sturgeon

:02:45.:02:46.

pressed her successor for a special deal.

:02:47.:02:49.

Like one former Prime Minister, Theresa May wanted to

:02:50.:02:52.

stand firm - no to flexible Brexit arrangements,

:02:53.:02:53.

no to Holyrood and the assemblies approving the final deal.

:02:54.:02:59.

Many parts of the meeting were deeply frustrating, because I

:03:00.:03:04.

certainly felt as if we weren't getting any major insight, and it is

:03:05.:03:07.

incumbent on the UK Government to be more open about what they are trying

:03:08.:03:11.

to achieve, and I am determined to work as hard as I can to protect

:03:12.:03:14.

The counterparts in Wales and Northern Ireland joined in.

:03:15.:03:32.

Nicola Sturgeon got the leverage of independence.

:03:33.:03:33.

If all we get is the door being closed in our face, I am

:03:34.:03:37.

determined that Scotland should not be taken off the cliff edge without

:03:38.:03:40.

having the opportunity to choose a better alternative.

:03:41.:03:42.

The first ministers have been sent back through the gates

:03:43.:03:44.

of Downing Street as they try to forge a special deal,

:03:45.:03:47.

but Theresa May faces a tough time as she needs a special deal with

:03:48.:03:52.

-- Brussels as well that will satisfy both party and country.

:03:53.:04:11.

In the afternoon the Prime Minister updated MPs on a

:04:12.:04:13.

trip to Brussels last week and explained

:04:14.:04:15.

that she would listen to the devolved nations.

:04:16.:04:17.

What I want is for us, in determining UK position,

:04:18.:04:19.

because it will be the UK that will be negotiating with the European

:04:20.:04:23.

Union, our future relationship, that we take into full account and

:04:24.:04:25.

understand properly the impacts and the particular issues that are of

:04:26.:04:28.

concern to the devolved administrations.

:04:29.:04:33.

its frustration at the Scottish Government.

:04:34.:04:35.

I think it is quite clear the SNP want another

:04:36.:04:37.

It wouldn't matter what came out of these

:04:38.:04:40.

negotiations, it wouldn't matter what the economic arguments for

:04:41.:04:44.

The SNP is committed to independence and holding another referendum.

:04:45.:04:56.

There was one happy couple in Westminster today,

:04:57.:04:58.

cementing their relationship, but some older unions

:04:59.:05:04.

are proving to be a little fruitless and frustrating at the moment - for

:05:05.:05:08.

A police inquiry is underway following the death

:05:09.:05:15.

of a three-week-old baby girl in Fife.

:05:16.:05:17.

Officers were called to a flat in Cupar in the early hours

:05:18.:05:20.

They're currently treating the infant's death as unexplained.

:05:21.:05:26.

A drug user is receiving treatment for suspected botulism in Aberdeen.

:05:27.:05:28.

NHS Grampian's Health Protection Team is investigating.

:05:29.:05:30.

If injected, it can cause infections and result in nerve paralysis.

:05:31.:05:43.

An 11-year-old Rangers fan, who was injured when a bottle

:05:44.:05:46.

was thrown at his head, has told the BBC about the incident.

:05:47.:05:48.

Kraig Mackay was walking to Sunday's Old Firm match

:05:49.:05:51.

at Hampden after his bus broke down, when the bottle hit him.

:05:52.:05:55.

Police Scotland have condemned the attack.

:05:56.:05:59.

But Kraig says he still wants to see the next Old Firm match.

:06:00.:06:06.

I just feel it will be safe at the next one,

:06:07.:06:10.

because it is at home, and I do not think...

:06:11.:06:12.

The only reason we were in that spot was because of the bus.

:06:13.:06:15.

So I do not think there is any chance of that

:06:16.:06:18.

New research from Stirling University has found that just one

:06:19.:06:21.

practice session of heading a football can lead to an immediate

:06:22.:06:24.

decrease in brain function, and a halving of memory recall.

:06:25.:06:27.

It's the first time this direct link has been found

:06:28.:06:29.

There are calls for Scotland to consider following the America

:06:30.:06:33.

in banning heading for very young players.

:06:34.:06:34.

Science has known for some time about the issue of concussion in

:06:35.:06:49.

Now heading a ball in football is under the spotlight.

:06:50.:06:58.

We have a way to assess where there are immediate

:06:59.:07:00.

changes in the brain, and we can measure that by looking at the

:07:01.:07:04.

signal as it travels from the brain to the leg.

:07:05.:07:06.

So we measure people before and after they head the football to

:07:07.:07:13.

We found that after heading the ball,

:07:14.:07:20.

the release of inhibitory chemicals in the brain was higher.

:07:21.:07:30.

So just heading a football has an immediate

:07:31.:07:35.

The testing was designed to replicate what you see

:07:36.:07:42.

If I do this and just head a football, I get memory loss

:07:43.:07:46.

Even the academics themselves weren't expecting the link to

:07:47.:07:51.

This is the thing that is surprising for me, that we found these

:07:52.:07:57.

changes in relation to heading practice, which one would think

:07:58.:08:02.

And certainly colleagues were quite sceptical

:08:03.:08:08.

about the study, about whether we would find

:08:09.:08:10.

any link, so I think it is quite a surprising result.

:08:11.:08:12.

Some think it is time to copy the Americans and ban heading for

:08:13.:08:15.

In America, they were the first one to look at it, and

:08:16.:08:19.

they have taken heading the ball out of the game for younger kids.

:08:20.:08:22.

We haven't done that yet, and it might

:08:23.:08:24.

If you had your time again, would you play football

:08:25.:08:32.

I would still want to play, I would still agree to play football,

:08:33.:08:41.

because that is what I wanted to do more than anything else, and I would

:08:42.:08:45.

The researchers say that two thirds of the players

:08:46.:08:49.

tested had symptoms that took 24-hour is to resolve.

:08:50.:08:54.

They said further testing is needed to assess

:08:55.:08:56.

whether there are any long-term affects.

:08:57.:08:58.

The winner of the Man Booker Prize will be announced in

:08:59.:09:03.

Six novels are in the running for the ?50,000 prize including

:09:04.:09:06.

a book by a small Scottish publishing house about a triple

:09:07.:09:09.

Our arts correspondent Pauline McLean reports.

:09:10.:09:19.

This place bills itself as Scotland's book town but, this year,

:09:20.:09:22.

there is one book in particular causing a real buzz.

:09:23.:09:33.

Of all the individuals in this parish, however, one is least

:09:34.:09:39.

surprised to learn of the perpetrator.

:09:40.:09:39.

Graeme Macrae Burnet's novel is not so much

:09:40.:09:41.

I wanted to write a novel about a murderer who writes an

:09:42.:09:50.

eloquent account of why he did what he did,

:09:51.:09:52.

and the documents were an important part of the

:09:53.:09:54.

It is a tale which captivated local people at a recent

:09:55.:09:58.

book event just as it captivated a small

:09:59.:10:00.

It is absolutely beautifully written,

:10:01.:10:12.

but you cannot help root for the character.

:10:13.:10:18.

You are so immersed in it that I personally felt I could have

:10:19.:10:21.

Judges of the Man Booker Prize heartily agree, they have short

:10:22.:10:26.

listed it for their ?50,000 prize which will be announced

:10:27.:10:28.

It is a significant cultural moment for Scotland, and it

:10:29.:10:37.

is not that Scotland has been dumbed down

:10:38.:10:39.

in the Man Booker Prize, it has

:10:40.:10:41.

been well represented over the years but we haven't had it for a little

:10:42.:10:44.

while and everybody likes the underdog.

:10:45.:10:47.

Win or lose, this is already a success story.

:10:48.:10:51.

A small publisher on an international stage

:10:52.:10:53.

and a previously unknown author outselling everything on the list.

:10:54.:11:04.

It just puts the boot in people's hands.

:11:05.:11:06.

All you want is for people to read your book.

:11:07.:11:10.

Let's have a look at the weather with Judith.

:11:11.:11:18.

Thank you. The first time I've used a frosty globe this year. A stunning

:11:19.:11:25.

weather while the picture set in by one of our team hill walking Weather

:11:26.:11:33.

Watch is, this photographer. I can pronounce his name, but here it is.

:11:34.:11:37.

Stretching over the view of the mountains. As far as the night is

:11:38.:11:40.

concerned, a lot of dry weather. A widespread forgery spreading across

:11:41.:11:46.

the north. One or two showers across eastern areas, they will continue to

:11:47.:11:51.

die away. It will be mainly dry, Miss and Ford patches forming. High

:11:52.:11:54.

pressure still holding onto what's the moral. It is already cold, it

:11:55.:11:59.

will still be called tomorrow. The main focus of the forward will be

:12:00.:12:03.

any cell. Measures below freezing across the northern part of the

:12:04.:12:09.

country -- half. Already, temperatures higher at one the West

:12:10.:12:12.

Coast. A sign of things to come later. As we had through the rest of

:12:13.:12:16.

the morning, a glorious day. Mist and fog and burning of, some patch

:12:17.:12:21.

is quite stubborn but we lose any showers along the coast with a

:12:22.:12:27.

better day to come than today. Still a brisk wind but just a few showers

:12:28.:12:35.

across Shetland. Temperatures at around 10-12dC. The northern half of

:12:36.:12:41.

the UK with good overall. Quite mild, and temperatures for South

:12:42.:12:46.

Wales and walls London -- Wales, will be a lot higher as well. That

:12:47.:12:51.

is what you will see for tomorrow. Bank of Scotland, it's stays nice

:12:52.:12:54.

toward the end of the day. Then cloud picks up and thickens up. Rain

:12:55.:13:01.

will be a bit patchy and the wind. To strengthen as well from the

:13:02.:13:04.

south-west, meaning milder air across the country. Here is the

:13:05.:13:07.

pressure chart. You see a weather front pushing in. We haven't seen

:13:08.:13:10.

one of those were a while. Not too much on the front, not exactly heavy

:13:11.:13:16.

rain but a bit windy and some patchy showers. The wind and the rain do

:13:17.:13:23.

clear away, but it will not be brightening up any time soon.

:13:24.:13:25.

Our next update is during Breakfast at 6:25am tomorrow morning.

:13:26.:13:28.

But, from everyone on the late team here in Glasgow and around
