Three men have now been arrested in connection with the attempted

:00:08.:00:11.

murder of two police officers in Glasgow.

:00:12.:00:13.

They're expected to appear in court on Monday.

:00:14.:00:16.

The police officers were struck by a car while they attended

:00:17.:00:20.

a call-out in the north of the city on Sunday night.

:00:21.:00:23.

On Sunday night at around 11:15pm, two officers were called

:00:24.:00:30.

to a disturbance here in Knightswood and then deliberately

:00:31.:00:32.

They were seriously injured after being run over by a blue

:00:33.:00:43.

Nissan, and they were both taken to hospital.

:00:44.:00:45.

The 30-year-old woman officer was so badly hurt

:00:46.:00:47.

And as the officers had lain on the road, hurt,

:00:48.:00:54.

that blue Nissan was driven away, hitting parked cars, including

:00:55.:00:57.

Police have today arrested three men in connection with the attempted

:00:58.:01:02.

murder of the officers, a 28-year-old man this morning

:01:03.:01:05.

and a 24-year-old and 30-year-old man this afternoon.

:01:06.:01:07.

The 30-year-old is David Maclean, who detectives issued

:01:08.:01:12.

a photo of earlier today and were very keen to trace.

:01:13.:01:15.

The woman police officer, although out of intensive care,

:01:16.:01:17.

ScotRail has been fined almost half a million pounds for failing

:01:18.:01:29.

to meet required standards for trains and stations.

:01:30.:01:32.

The inspection results follow criticism of the franchise

:01:33.:01:36.

over delayed, cancelled and over-crowded trains.

:01:37.:01:39.

Here's our Transport Correspondent David Henderson.

:01:40.:01:47.

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

:01:48.:01:57.

already under pressure to improve their targets, for things like

:01:58.:02:02.

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

:02:03.:02:07.

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

:02:08.:02:11.

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

:02:12.:02:16.

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

:02:17.:02:21.

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

:02:22.:02:26.

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

:02:27.:02:30.

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

:02:31.:02:37.

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

:02:38.:02:41.

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

:02:42.:02:46.

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

:02:47.:02:51.

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

:02:52.:02:54.

Scottish Government to say that further improvements will be

:02:55.:02:57.

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

:02:58.:03:04.

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

:03:05.:03:07.

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

:03:08.:03:12.

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

:03:13.:03:17.

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

:03:18.:03:20.

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

:03:21.:03:24.

Independence campaigners, holding a vigil outside

:03:25.:03:26.

the Scottish Parliament have lost their appeal against eviction.

:03:27.:03:28.

The Court of Session upheld an earlier ruling

:03:29.:03:30.

Defiant, determined but almost out of options.

:03:31.:03:39.

The pledge from those running the camp was that it

:03:40.:03:42.

would remain until Scotland was declared independent.

:03:43.:03:46.

But today the bell tolled, as judges threw out an appeal over

:03:47.:03:49.

The handful of people at the camp today did not want to be

:03:50.:03:59.

interviewed, but the sense here was one of defiance,

:04:00.:04:02.

and as far as they are concerned, today's judgment has

:04:03.:04:05.

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

:04:06.:04:10.

wanted the camp removed, arguing it was unlicensed

:04:11.:04:12.

and a threat to Parliament's neutrality.

:04:13.:04:17.

But when they were ordered to leave, the campers took their case

:04:18.:04:25.

to the Court of Session, claiming their human

:04:26.:04:27.

Seven months of legal argument would follow, social media

:04:28.:04:30.

projecting an often surreal courtroom to the wider world.

:04:31.:04:34.

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

:04:35.:04:37.

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

:04:38.:04:40.

to Earth and is campaigning for Scottish Independence.

:04:41.:04:43.

But there is a serious issue of human rights

:04:44.:04:46.

at the basis of the case and that was what the

:04:47.:04:49.

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

:04:50.:04:54.

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

:04:55.:05:02.

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

:05:03.:05:05.

the campers if they have not left voluntarily.

:05:06.:05:08.

Our preference is that they respect the ruling and leave the site.

:05:09.:05:12.

The campers say that fundamentally this has been

:05:13.:05:14.

The Scottish Parliament say they will discuss finding

:05:15.:05:18.

an alternative way to allow that, but only once the camp has gone.

:05:19.:05:28.

The family of a missing French student say they can think of no

:05:29.:05:31.

reason why he may have gone missing in Edinburgh.

:05:32.:05:33.

Police believe that Antoine Maury may have become disorientated,

:05:34.:05:38.

after leaving friends on Monday evening.

:05:39.:05:40.

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

:05:41.:05:44.

sightings of a topless man spotted there on Monday evening.

:05:45.:05:52.

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

:05:53.:05:59.

to be here. Every time I spoke to him on the phone he was very happy

:06:00.:06:04.

to be here. He was succeeding in his exams. He was very interested in

:06:05.:06:08.

what he was doing. A plane was diverted and escorted

:06:09.:06:09.

to land under military escort The flight had lost contact

:06:10.:06:12.

with air traffic control, which led to RAF Typhoon

:06:13.:06:16.

jets being scrambled. People along the west

:06:17.:06:18.

coast heard sonic booms as the jets went supersonic,

:06:19.:06:22.

breaking the sound barrier. Police said the Airbus A320

:06:23.:06:25.

was travelling from Toulouse The governing body of youth football

:06:26.:06:27.

in Scotland is urgently reviewing its guidelines on heading

:06:28.:06:36.

the ball following new evidence A Stirling University study

:06:37.:06:39.

suggested repeated heading could impair recall

:06:40.:06:45.

for up to 24 hours. The Scottish Youth Football

:06:46.:06:47.

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

:06:48.:06:50.

repetitive header drills but also rejected suggestions that football

:06:51.:06:53.

should be avoided before exams. Rugby and Edinburgh suffered

:06:54.:07:03.

an embarrassing defeat at home against bottom club

:07:04.:07:05.

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

:07:06.:07:10.

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

:07:11.:07:14.

for the first try before centre Mark Bennett ran 40 metres to score

:07:15.:07:18.

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

:07:19.:07:24.

the third before Alex Dunbar landed the bonus point just

:07:25.:07:28.

before half time. Rory Hughes got his second

:07:29.:07:33.

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

:07:34.:07:36.

when Langilangi Haupeakui was sent off for a second

:07:37.:07:39.

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

:07:40.:07:44.

to external investment. The Scottish Rugby Union's member

:07:45.:07:47.

clubs have voted unanimously in favour of a proposal that

:07:48.:07:50.

would allow some or all shares in Glasgow Warriors and Edinburgh

:07:51.:07:53.

Rugby to be put on the market. At the moment they are funded

:07:54.:07:56.

entirely by the SRU. It's over to Christopher now

:07:57.:08:05.

with the weather forecast Good evening. Fairly cloudy and

:08:06.:08:15.

largely dry tonight. Quite chilly at the moment across the North East but

:08:16.:08:20.

the cloud will build here and the temperature will recover. While high

:08:21.:08:23.

pressure is nearby and generally in charge we have this weather front

:08:24.:08:28.

straddling across the country. Bringing outbreaks of rain overnight

:08:29.:08:32.

for the West and north-west. That is how we starting tomorrow morning.

:08:33.:08:35.

They cloudy and damp morning in places with some mist around. The

:08:36.:08:39.

rain moving to the hills by the afternoon. Many areas dry but

:08:40.:08:43.

brightness will be limited as we head through towards the afternoon.

:08:44.:08:46.

Worst of it likely across the North East. In the UK as a whole high

:08:47.:08:51.

pressure is in charge, so it is largely dry, little in the way of

:08:52.:08:58.

wind but cloudy. Temperatures on the mild side for this time of year, low

:08:59.:09:03.

to mid teens. A closer look for us, by mid afternoon a fuse box of rain,

:09:04.:09:07.

mainly over the hills but temperature wise -- a few spots of

:09:08.:09:15.

rain. Generally it is dry but fairly cloudy. Towards eastern Scotland

:09:16.:09:19.

through parts of Perthshire in towards Angus and Aberdeenshire,

:09:20.:09:22.

we're likely to see something a bit brighter by the afternoon. Maybe 15

:09:23.:09:27.

Celsius. Further north and north-west quite drizzly across

:09:28.:09:30.

Shetland for most of the day and cloudy and damp in that area.

:09:31.:09:36.

Staying fairly proudly and little change in the evening. They largely

:09:37.:09:40.

settled day on Sunday. They cloudy and damp start a central and

:09:41.:09:44.

southern and eastern Scotland should dry up with a dry but cloudy

:09:45.:09:51.

afternoon in store. Staying wet in areas in the far north-east. Don't

:09:52.:09:55.

forget the clocks go back one hour. That is forecast for now.

:09:56.:09:57.

Our next update is tomorrow evening at 5:50pm.

:09:58.:10:01.

But from everyone on the late team here in Glasgow, have a
