Here, on BBC One, it's time for the news where you are.

:00:00.:00:08.

Police investigating a house fire on New Year's day, which killed

:00:09.:00:12.

a man and left his girlfriend critically injured say they want

:00:13.:00:14.

to trace the occupants of a car, which was seen nearby.

:00:15.:00:20.

23-year-old Cameron Logan died in the blaze, which police say

:00:21.:00:23.

was started deliberately at the family home in Milngavie.

:00:24.:00:25.

Teams of police officers searching hedgerows, bins and pavements along

:00:26.:00:40.

the road where half a mile ago from the scene of the fire and this

:00:41.:00:44.

investigation comes as detectives revealed that they are keen to trace

:00:45.:00:51.

a dark coloured car parked in a lay-by about the time the car was

:00:52.:01:02.

started. Unusually, the car had its engine running. There could be a

:01:03.:01:10.

reason why it was there, but we are appealing for anyone to come forward

:01:11.:01:13.

and say where that car was there. There may be a reasonable

:01:14.:01:19.

explanation. Get in touch with those and give as information. The fire

:01:20.:01:28.

that killed Logan, left his girlfriend in hospital. Her boss

:01:29.:01:32.

said the thoughts with everyone at the company where with her family.

:01:33.:01:41.

The crime scene is described as complex with officers also checking

:01:42.:01:45.

local CCTV and talking to neighbours. Detectives say the fire

:01:46.:01:49.

was started deliberately and was a targeted attack but they won't say

:01:50.:01:54.

whether or not they think the man was the intended victim. We are

:01:55.:01:58.

satisfied that it was not the wrong house that was picked, given that we

:01:59.:02:02.

know this was a deliberate fire, we are satisfied that it was targeted,

:02:03.:02:09.

however we're trying to work away to establish who intended to... The

:02:10.:02:15.

police will be keeping a high-profile presence in the area.

:02:16.:02:19.

Rescuers say a couple who survived a night in the Cairngorm mountains

:02:20.:02:21.

Bob and Cathy Elmer from Leicester were caught out when a planned

:02:22.:02:26.

They sheltered with their dog in survival bags in white out

:02:27.:02:29.

conditions, before they were found by a mountain rescue team.

:02:30.:02:32.

This was the moment members of the Cairngorm Mountain rescue team came

:02:33.:02:48.

across Bob and Cathy. The pair had been hill walking in Scotland for

:02:49.:02:53.

around 25 years, but they admit that despite their experience and

:02:54.:02:55.

equipment they were unprepared for the conditions they were to face

:02:56.:02:58.

when they ventured out on the first day of the year. We knew as winter

:02:59.:03:04.

time, we probably didn't quite judge really how long it was going to

:03:05.:03:12.

take. It became an issue when I got two thirds of the way down and Cathy

:03:13.:03:16.

were struggling to keep up with me. Then I knew that it was going to

:03:17.:03:20.

take a lot longer than what I had and has abated. With their collie

:03:21.:03:23.

take a lot longer than what I had dog in tow, they found themselves in

:03:24.:03:27.

deep slow in darkness and with the batteries in the head torches giving

:03:28.:03:29.

out. -- in snow. The snow was of 12 batteries in the head torches giving

:03:30.:03:36.

waste and we decided we couldn't go on any further because we didn't

:03:37.:03:39.

know where we are going. You couldn't see a hand in front of your

:03:40.:03:45.

face so we got the survivals bag out and got down in the night in them.

:03:46.:03:49.

face so we got the survivals bag out Mountain rescuers say that despite

:03:50.:03:53.

temperatures of -6 and high winds, their decision to stay put and

:03:54.:03:56.

weight of the daylight probably saved their lives. It probably was

:03:57.:04:07.

the decision that saved their lives to stay on Cairngorm even though it

:04:08.:04:13.

wasn't attractive. You can go up and Nevis on a summers day and you can

:04:14.:04:19.

be knee-high in snow. We've been there and done it. So, you have to

:04:20.:04:25.

go equipped and have the right kit even if the sun is shining on the

:04:26.:04:31.

ground. We are now well into the winter climbing season and while

:04:32.:04:35.

Scotland's weather can be unpredictable at the best of times

:04:36.:04:38.

that is especially the case or peer and during the winter months. The

:04:39.:04:44.

message to anyone venturing into the hills is make sure you have the

:04:45.:04:48.

right equipment, and skills and always be prepared to turn back.

:04:49.:04:51.

A hill walker has been airlifted from the Cairngorms

:04:52.:04:53.

It's understood two young mountaineers found the man

:04:54.:04:56.

in the Northern Corries and carried him for

:04:57.:04:58.

Mountain rescuers were flown in by helicopter to help,

:04:59.:05:04.

and the casualty was given medical treatment and airlifted to hospital.

:05:05.:05:08.

Compensation paid out by Police Scotland has reached

:05:09.:05:10.

by the Scottish Conservatives through a freedom of

:05:11.:05:18.

In the year to the end of last March, the force spent almost one

:05:19.:05:26.

point three million pounds in damages claims.

:05:27.:05:27.

A spokesman for Police Scotland said the sum paid out in compensation

:05:28.:05:30.

was a tiny percentage of the annual budget of more than

:05:31.:05:33.

Scottish Labour is rejecting the idea of joining up

:05:34.:05:39.

with their arch-rivals, the SNP, to help defeat

:05:40.:05:41.

Labour say they're "hated" by the SNP,

:05:42.:05:47.

but nationalists say their door is always open to a deal.

:05:48.:05:50.

This comes as a Labour-leaning think-tank said the party was too

:05:51.:05:52.

Our political correspondent Andrew Kerr reports.

:05:53.:06:04.

Remember this man, it will be 20 years in May since Tony Blair swept

:06:05.:06:12.

to power, but now a think tank closely linked with the new Labour

:06:13.:06:17.

movement warns that the party is too weak to win... Posters certainly

:06:18.:06:27.

agree with that analysis. This position in the opinion polls seems

:06:28.:06:32.

to be weaker than in 2015, to that extent we're asking ourselves how

:06:33.:06:38.

badly can they do not whether they have any prospect of winning the

:06:39.:06:42.

election. The idea from the Fabian Society is for the leader, Jeremy

:06:43.:06:49.

Corbyn to win enough MPs to former governing partnership with other

:06:50.:06:53.

parties. If Labour can gain some more MPs, but not get an majority

:06:54.:06:58.

Iniesta think about working with the Lib Dems or the SNP. Winning more

:06:59.:07:06.

Iniesta think about working with the seats might be a distant goal for

:07:07.:07:12.

one former Labour MP who was ousted in 2015, while a partnership with

:07:13.:07:17.

the SNP is ruled out. This is a party who hates the Liberal party,

:07:18.:07:22.

who views the destruction of the Labour Party as their way of gaining

:07:23.:07:27.

independence. -- who hates the Labour Party. The message of

:07:28.:07:33.

solidarity means to take hold. The Conservatives used this to warn

:07:34.:07:38.

about the SNP calling the tune in the 2015 election. The nationalists

:07:39.:07:44.

insist they are ready and waiting in Labour want to come forward. As far

:07:45.:07:49.

as the SMP concerned the door has always been open, but Labour need to

:07:50.:07:52.

as the SMP concerned the door has decide whether staying on their own

:07:53.:07:56.

is more important than forming progressive alliances to oppose the

:07:57.:08:00.

right wing, Tory government that we see just now in Westminster. Labour

:08:01.:08:05.

says it comes down to a straight choice for the SNP, back a Labour

:08:06.:08:12.

government or a Tory one. But, as the Labour think tank says in the

:08:13.:08:16.

polling evidence indicates, Labour in power is still a very distant

:08:17.:08:17.

prospect. The number of oil and gas companies

:08:18.:08:19.

in the UK going out of business is at an all time high,

:08:20.:08:23.

It follows a slump in A report by accountancy firm

:08:24.:08:26.

Moore Stephens said a total of 16 firms became insolvent last year,

:08:27.:08:36.

up from two the year before, Nearly one year on, residents

:08:37.:08:39.

in a flood hit area of Aberdeenshire say they're living in fear it

:08:40.:08:44.

could happen again. Almost one hundred people living

:08:45.:08:46.

in Inverurie and Port Elphinstone had to leave their homes,

:08:47.:08:48.

when the river Don burst Rebecca Curran has been

:08:49.:08:51.

Elphinstone and it was an unforgettable start to 2016. Heavy

:09:06.:09:11.

rain caused the river to burst its banks and roads tend to leave their

:09:12.:09:18.

homes. The river was getting higher and there was no less tasty or

:09:19.:09:25.

heating so we had to get her out. -- no electricity. Kevin and his family

:09:26.:09:29.

moved back in July, but the past year has been hard. Even when we got

back here it took was a while to settle back, especially my son

:09:35.:09:39.

because every bit of rain, he thinks Wiggin to flood again. There's no

:09:40.:09:46.

point of talking to him, you're better letting him cry and sit back

:09:47.:09:51.

to him when he is, and tell him it is only a wee bit of rain, it's not

:09:52.:09:57.

going to happen again. It came careering down here and Dell use, it

:09:58.:10:00.

was like this in arming, as I call it. This woman's home was badly hit

:10:01.:10:08.

and her friend was trapped inside surrounded by rising water. Within

:10:09.:10:16.

minutes the water came up past our ankles and we had to evacuate as

:10:17.:10:22.

well. This is where the water came from, a bank has now been installed

:10:23.:10:26.

to protect the area from a future Lord. Some fear it's not enough.

:10:27.:10:32.

That's all they've done, I think, they need to be doing more

:10:33.:10:39.

especially round by the canal. It could quite easily happen again. No

:10:40.:10:46.

qualms about that. As we building work here continues Aberdeenshire
