ScotRail has been fined almost half a million pounds for failing


to meet required standards for trains and stations.


The inspection results follow criticism of the franchise


over delayed, cancelled and over-crowded trains.


Here's our Transport Correspondent David Henderson.


Well, this is another wrap across the knuckles for ScotRail. They are


already under pressure to improve their targets, for things like


reducing the number of trains that are late, reducing levels of


overcrowding on the trains. But they also assessed on soft performance


targets. Inspectors travel on the trains, go to the stations and ask


the core questions, like RB train announcements clear enough on what


is the service from staff like, are the toilets clean enough? It seems


they have failed on a number of those fronts, to put up during July


to September, targets were not met in five out of 17 areas of station


performance and ScotRail also missed ten out of 17 benchmarks on the


train. The end result is they have been hit by an enormous fine, almost


half ?1 million, which will be reinvested in the rail network but


which will hit ScotRail's profits. Some reaction tonight from the


Scottish Government to say that further improvements will be


required. They have asked transport Scotland to ask ScotRail to set out


in detail how it plans to improve performance. As far as ScotRail is


concerned, they say they will never stop striving to deliver they are


investing almost half ?1 billion in new trains and refurbished trains


and on better Wi-Fi to improve the passenger experience. They will now


know it is day-to-day services which have to improve fast.

Ever since it first appeared, Holyrood's corporate body have


wanted the camp removed, arguing it was unlicensed

It is based on the declaration of Arbroath and the act of union.


There are spiritual arguments based on the idea that Jesus has returned

But there is a serious issue of human rights

Today's ruling gives the authorities the right to apply for a court


We will apply for the order and it will probably take several days.


As soon as we are in possession of that, we will seek to remove

after leaving friends on Monday evening.


They've been searching Holyrood Park after what they describe as credible


sightings of a topless man spotted there on Monday evening.


We spoke to him last time last week on Thursday. He was extremely happy

in Scotland is urgently reviewing its guidelines on heading

Association says it would be "inadvisable" for a child to do


repetitive header drills but also rejected suggestions that football


should be avoided before exams. Rugby and Edinburgh suffered


an embarrassing defeat at home against bottom club


Zebre, losing 19-14. Better news for Glasgow who went top


with a 31-14 win over Treviso. Jonny Gray crashed over

after good work by Tommy Seymour. Rory Hughes ran a good line to score


the third before Alex Dunbar landed the bonus point just


before half time. Rory Hughes got his second


of the night in the second half but the victory was tarnished


when Langilangi Haupeakui was sent off for a second


yellow card on his debut. And both sides could soon be open


to external investment. The Scottish Rugby Union's member
