BBC Two, 11.00pm in Scotland. Here on BBC One it's time

:00:00.:00:26.

Nicola Sturgeon argued the top priority was to maintain access to

:00:27.:00:34.

the European single market in goods and services. Political opponents

:00:35.:00:38.

challenged her to drop her back-up plan for an independence referendum.

:00:39.:00:47.

Nicola Sturgeon in Edinburgh, in search of common ground. I think

:00:48.:00:51.

there is a real opportunity to present to the UK Government a

:00:52.:00:59.

unified Scottish position. And all Scotland coalition of politicians,

:01:00.:01:03.

businesses, universities, and a whole range of others to resist a

:01:04.:01:08.

hard Brexit. The aim to put weight behind Scotland's demand to stay in

:01:09.:01:19.

the single market. There is a high risk that these companies will go to

:01:20.:01:26.

other parts of Europe. It is important to retain a Scottish

:01:27.:01:31.

identity and to retain some form of focus on Scotland in the single

:01:32.:01:37.

market. There is real anxiety as well. I don't care if you are male,

:01:38.:01:45.

female or kangaroo, I just want certainty, so I can give that to my

:01:46.:01:52.

staff. This matters. Scotland trades heavily with the EU. An

:01:53.:01:56.

staff. This matters. Scotland trades report reckoned Brexit could cost up

:01:57.:02:01.

to 80,000 Scottish jobs. Yellow macro and the issue of clarity in

:02:02.:02:09.

relation to Brexit... The Prime Minister says she understands. What

:02:10.:02:13.

might happen? A single market consists currently of the EU member

:02:14.:02:22.

states, plus Iceland, Lichtenstein and Norway, surviving members of the

:02:23.:02:27.

free trade Association. Switzerland has access to the market through

:02:28.:02:33.

multiple treaties. The Swiss have now voted for migrant quotas and

:02:34.:02:38.

some question them membership. All members of the market of full,

:02:39.:02:42.

autonomous states, not like Scotland. EU legal experts spell it

:02:43.:02:52.

out. That poses a challenge for Scotland. The starting point he

:02:53.:02:56.

says, would be to get UK Government on side. Scotland needs new powers

:02:57.:03:02.

under the devolution settlement, not only to sign up to an organisation

:03:03.:03:07.

might this but to be able to comply with all the rules the organisation

:03:08.:03:13.

has, such as rules on product standards, rules on financial

:03:14.:03:17.

services and rules on immigration. Doctor Locke stresses anything is

:03:18.:03:23.

possible if the will was there. Green and was allowed to leave the

:03:24.:03:29.

EU, while remaining part of Denmark. Could the Scotland answer lie here?

:03:30.:03:40.

Belgium has a limited access to free trade. If the Belgian provinces --

:03:41.:03:47.

be Belgian provinces are not in the single market. That is reserved to

:03:48.:03:52.

Belgium. This sort of conundrum might appeal to wear name and greet,

:03:53.:03:55.

the surrealist artist. Meanwhile fishing industry leaders

:03:56.:04:02.

in Scotland say they're encouraged by talks they've held in London

:04:03.:04:04.

with the UK government on the opportunities and challenges

:04:05.:04:07.

presented by Brexit. The organisation, which campaigned

:04:08.:04:09.

for a Leave vote in June's referendum, says control over

:04:10.:04:11.

British waters will bring huge potential benefits

:04:12.:04:13.

to Scottish fishing. We have a very strong handfuls that

:04:14.:04:19.

that is completely understood by the Secretary of State. We are asking

:04:20.:04:26.

both governments for us in Scottish fishing, both relevant governance,

:04:27.:04:30.

to work together on this. This is one of the best patches of maritime

:04:31.:04:32.

real estate in the world. A campaign's growing to cut speed

:04:33.:04:39.

limits in a Perthshire town after the death of a two

:04:40.:04:42.

year old girl. In recent days someone took matters

:04:43.:04:44.

into their own hands in Coupar Angus Flowers still marked the scene where

:04:45.:04:54.

Carl Edwards was killed here two weeks ago. She was walking along

:04:55.:04:58.

this pavement when she was struck by a car after it had collided with

:04:59.:05:03.

another vehicle. The funeral of the two-year-old took place yesterday.

:05:04.:05:07.

Her older brother and teenage sister are recovering from serious

:05:08.:05:11.

injuries. An investigation into the cause of the accident is continuing.

:05:12.:05:15.

It has shocked people in the town and led to renewed calls full speed

:05:16.:05:20.

limits to be cut. There is a 30 mile an hour limit in force will stop a

:05:21.:05:26.

couple of hundred yards further on it changes to 60. People here say

:05:27.:05:30.

they have campaigned for years to have a 20 mile an hour limit

:05:31.:05:35.

throughout the town and this death adds urgency to that campaign.

:05:36.:05:39.

Opinions on whether that would work are divided. There were lots of

:05:40.:05:44.

people knocking around. I think 20 miles an hour would be reasonable. I

:05:45.:05:51.

think it is a very good idea. I don't know if it will help. In

:05:52.:05:56.

recent days, someone took direct action, changing some of the signs

:05:57.:06:01.

to 20. They have been changed back but it is perhaps a sign of

:06:02.:06:07.

frustration. But some people man crew. That was an illegal action. It

:06:08.:06:14.

might have given people some cheer, it was soon rectified. Whoever did

:06:15.:06:19.

it and removed it very quickly. Police have issued a stern warning.

:06:20.:06:22.

They regularly carry out speed enforcement activity in the area and

:06:23.:06:28.

altering statutory science risks jeopardising police efforts to

:06:29.:06:32.

enforce the existing legal speed limit. Perth and Kinross Council

:06:33.:06:36.

said they are planning a range of other measures to continue to

:06:37.:06:40.

discourage speeding on this road. The death of this little girl

:06:41.:06:44.

appears to have made campaign is more determined to get a permanent

:06:45.:06:46.

lower speed limit in their town. Judges are to issue a written

:06:47.:06:54.

decision on whether a private prosecution can be brought

:06:55.:06:56.

against the Glasgow bin lorry crash Final legal arguments were heard

:06:57.:06:59.

at the court of Session Relatives of three of the six people

of the Scottish Parliament has set up an independent commission

:07:09.:07:15.

on Parliamentary reform. Ken Macintosh has established

:07:16.:07:17.

a review group to examine how Holyrood holds Government

:07:18.:07:19.

to account, how it scrutinises legislation, and how public

:07:20.:07:21.

engagement can be improved. Politics in Scotland has become

:07:22.:07:34.

tribal and divisive over the last decade. I want the public to

:07:35.:07:37.

re-engage with Parliament and be confident we can carry out duties on

:07:38.:07:40.

behalf of the people of Scotland. RAF serviceman Corrie McKeague has

:07:41.:08:03.

been missing for over a month. The 23-year-old from Dunfermline

:08:04.:08:06.

was last seen near his base in Bury St Edmonds,

:08:07.:08:08.

and despite widespread coverage of CCTV showing him after a night

:08:09.:08:10.

out, his disappearance His mother says she believes

:08:11.:08:13.

he was taken in a vehicle. From Suffolk, Katherine Nash

reports. Searches took place north of Bury St

:08:17.:08:20.

Edmunds, one of the possible routes back to RAF Honington. He went

:08:21.:08:23.

missing after a night out in Bury St Edmunds on Friday 23rd of September.

:08:24.:08:27.

He was later seen on CCTV in the town in the early hours of Saturday

:08:28.:08:32.

morning. Following a number of police appeals, earlier this week a

:08:33.:08:35.

man came forward with a possible sighting of him on an industrial

:08:36.:08:40.

estate just behind the sugar beet factory in Bury St Edmunds. Earlier

today I spoke to his mother, who has factory in Bury St Edmunds. Earlier

come down from Scotland full Suchy spent the last month in Suffolk. I

:08:47.:08:54.

asked how she is holding up. As each day goes by, how we are feeling is

:08:55.:08:59.

starting to change. Initially, it was possible, although he had never

:09:00.:09:04.

tried to walk back to base before, he would have been capable of doing

:09:05.:09:10.

it. Now it is very hard to think of anything else that has happened to

:09:11.:09:15.

him, other than he has gone in a vehicle, because there is just no

:09:16.:09:22.

evidence to say he has not. 5000 man-hours have been put in for the

:09:23.:09:27.

surge. Not only are the police and RAF involved but also volunteer

:09:28.:09:32.

groups. So far no trace of him has been found. Police are still

:09:33.:09:35.

appealing for witnesses who may have been in the area at the time to

:09:36.:09:37.

contact them. More than 30 police and experts have

:09:38.:09:56.

been searching for the 21-year-old Anton Morley. The public is being

:09:57.:10:05.

urged to check gardens, outhouses and garages. He lost his footing

:10:06.:10:10.

from the lock. There is water and it was freezing cold on Monday night.

:10:11.:10:13.

It would be treacherous if someone fell in. That is the cause of our

:10:14.:10:19.

concern. A Dundee-born scientist has died

:10:20.:10:25.

in Antarctica after the snowmobile 50 year old Dr Gordon

:10:26.:10:27.

Hamilton was killed after the vehicle plunged 100

:10:28.:10:34.

feet on Saturday. Dr Hamilton was a professor

:10:35.:10:36.

at the University of Maine A plan is in place for

:10:37.:10:41.

the Scottish Government to take over the running of the country's

:10:42.:10:56.

railways, if Scotrail fails to meet More than 19,000 people have

:10:57.:10:59.

signed a petition calling on the Transport Minister Humza

:11:00.:11:02.

Yousaf to strip the Dutch firm Abellio of the Scotrail contract

:11:03.:11:04.

if they fail to improve. Mr Yousaf told MSPs that contingency

:11:05.:11:07.

plans were ready for ministers Let's get the weather. Over to

:11:08.:11:10.

Christopher. Fairly cloudy but largely dry. Clear

:11:11.:11:32.

conditions across the North East. A touch cooler. Tomorrow morning, we

:11:33.:11:37.

will have a weather front in the north-west. Breezy with of rain.

:11:38.:11:43.

Tomorrow morning, some fairly dense fog patches. There could be some

:11:44.:11:49.

disruption to flights in and out of airports. Back home, tomorrow

:11:50.:11:54.

morning, eight cloudy start. The odd spot of light rain and drizzle.

:11:55.:11:59.

Generally drive. Certainly frost free first thing. Perhaps the odd

:12:00.:12:04.

bright spell across the north-east. Pretty wet across the North West

:12:05.:12:07.

with a weather front approaching. Windy here as well. The rain stayed

:12:08.:12:13.

foremost of the day across the Highlands and Islands. Elsewhere,

:12:14.:12:17.

after the early spit and spot of rain, drying up with sunshine coming

:12:18.:12:24.

through. Sunny intervals coming and going. In the Northwest, some heavy

:12:25.:12:26.

rainfall with strong winds. Potentially gale force for a time. A

:12:27.:12:32.

windy day. Tomorrow, south of the border, largely dry and bright.

:12:33.:12:36.

Closer to the high pressure here and temperatures responding into their

:12:37.:12:42.

mid-teens and we will have 13, 14 Celsius. Soggy across the North West

:12:43.:12:46.

on Thursday evening the weather front will work its way southwards.

:12:47.:12:52.

But as we head through Friday, that rain will have cleared and the

:12:53.:12:56.

high-pressure starting to nudge its way northwards a bit. The gradient

:12:57.:13:02.

opening out and the winds easing. Generally dry with some bright

:13:03.:13:06.

spells. Some and patchy rain in the West and south-west by the end of

:13:07.:13:10.

the afternoon. Towards the weekend, a bitter battle between

:13:11.:13:14.

high-pressure in the near constant and low pressure in the Atlantic. We

:13:15.:13:18.

think this high will keep the weather friends and rain at bay.

:13:19.:13:24.

Saturday and Sunday, largely dry but largely cloudy. That is the

:13:25.:13:29.

forecast. That is reporting Scotland. From all of us, good

:13:30.:13:30.

night.
