Kier Starmer as well. Join me now on BBC Two. That's Newsnight with Evan.

:00:00.:00:00.

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

:00:00.:00:21.

A man has been shot in a targeted attack, as he dropped off his child

:00:22.:00:26.

at a Glasgow primary school just as other children

:00:27.:00:28.

It happened in the Penilee area of the city and it is understood

:00:29.:00:35.

Police say whoever carried out the attack had put young children

:00:36.:00:39.

and innocent people at risk. Suzanne Allan reports.

:00:40.:00:46.

Police have spent today examining the scene of this crime

:00:47.:00:49.

and reassuring the public that they are safe.

:00:50.:00:50.

It was near bell time and as parents were dropping off their

:00:51.:00:53.

children a man pushing a buggy approached another parent.

:00:54.:00:55.

One woman told me that she heard a loud noise.

:00:56.:01:00.

I thought it was an air rifle going off and the kids

:01:01.:01:04.

asked what had happened and I just said nothing.

:01:05.:01:07.

No, but I saw the children jumping and then they kept walking.

:01:08.:01:17.

These grandparents who live around the corner have a child

:01:18.:01:20.

We cannot get into our own house just around the corner.

:01:21.:01:26.

Worried that we do not know what else is happening.

:01:27.:01:32.

It is shocking for it to be at his school.

:01:33.:01:35.

And especially a primary school, with the kids there,

:01:36.:01:37.

Police believe that this was a targeted attack.

:01:38.:01:44.

The BBC understands that the victim is 35-year-old Ross Monaghan,

:01:45.:01:48.

who was cleared four years ago of the gangland murder of Kevin

:01:49.:01:51.

Carroll, who was shot dead in a car park in 2010.

:01:52.:01:57.

The force says it is putting on extra patrols

:01:58.:02:00.

This was a frightening incident for those

:02:01.:02:06.

involved and, indeed, some of the staff have been shaken

:02:07.:02:08.

I would like to reassure people that we have extra resources

:02:09.:02:15.

that are brought into the area as well as all

:02:16.:02:18.

It is the second time there has been a shooting close to a school

:02:19.:02:29.

There was another 18 months ago in Bishopbriggs and, as with this

:02:30.:02:33.

incident, there are concerns that children may be upset with what

:02:34.:02:36.

Fortunately, most of the children, almost all of them, were

:02:37.:02:39.

in the playground and they were safe and secure, but there would be

:02:40.:02:42.

latecomers and it is unacceptable that these people have chosen

:02:43.:02:45.

to target this incident outside and potentially endanger

:02:46.:02:47.

Mr Monaghan has been discharged from hospital

:02:48.:03:06.

A man has appeared in court charged with murdering his

:03:07.:03:10.

brother in a house fire in East Dunbartonshire

:03:11.:03:12.

Cameron Logan, who was 23, died in the blaze at

:03:13.:03:15.

His girlfriend was rescued from the house and is still in hospital.

:03:16.:03:19.

Today, 26-year-old Blair Logan was remanded in custody

:03:20.:03:21.

at Dumbarton Sheriff Court, charged with murder and attempted murder.

:03:22.:03:24.

Still a significant police presence in Milngavie today.

:03:25.:03:27.

As well as forensic officers working at the scene,

:03:28.:03:30.

there are floral tributes left to the young man who died here.

:03:31.:03:32.

Emergency services were called just before 7.30 in the morning on

:03:33.:03:35.

The body of 23-year-old Cameron Logan was found in the house.

:03:36.:03:40.

As they began to investigate what they called the complex scene

:03:41.:03:44.

behind me, investigators concluded that they believed the fire had

:03:45.:03:46.

Rebecca Williams, the girlfriend of Cameron Logan, is still

:03:47.:03:53.

in hospital and the brother's parents, David and

:03:54.:03:55.

Cathy, both needed treatment for the effects

:03:56.:03:56.

Today, 26-year-old Blair Logan, the older brother of Cameron Logan,

:03:57.:04:06.

appeared in court in Dunbartonshire to face a range

:04:07.:04:08.

of charges, including murder and attempted murder.

:04:09.:04:12.

He made no plea and he was remanded in custody.

:04:13.:04:18.

The date of his next appearance in court has yet to be set.

:04:19.:04:25.

The inquest has begun into the deaths of 30 tourists

:04:26.:04:27.

who were killed in a terror attack in Tunisia in 2015.

:04:28.:04:30.

Four Scots were among those who died when a lone gunman opened

:04:31.:04:33.

The proceedings, which are taking place in London, are being shown

:04:34.:04:41.

It was a special holiday for Billy and Lisa Graham from near Perth.

:04:42.:04:44.

They had gone to a resort in Tunisia to celebrate the 50th birthday of

:04:45.:04:48.

Mrs Graham, but became victims of a terrorist attack aimed directly

:04:49.:04:50.

Fellow Scots Annie and Jim McGuire also

:04:51.:04:55.

The retired couple, in their sixties, were described

:04:56.:05:01.

as being very active in their local church.

:05:02.:05:07.

It was on 26 June 2015 that a heavily-armed 23-year-old

:05:08.:05:09.

Tunisian student began firing indiscriminately on tourists

:05:10.:05:15.

It remains the deadliest terror attack on British people

:05:16.:05:24.

Relatives of those who died gathered at the Royal Court of Justice in

:05:25.:05:30.

London today, as the inquest into the deaths of the

:05:31.:05:33.

There was a minute's silence and all the names were read out.

:05:34.:05:39.

For the Scottish relatives and survivors,

:05:40.:05:41.

there was also a chance to be involved.

:05:42.:05:45.

A room has been set aside at Stirling Sheriff Court,

:05:46.:05:47.

where the relatives of those who died can

:05:48.:05:49.

watch the proceedings in London through a special TV link.

:05:50.:05:55.

The inquests are expected to last around seven weeks and this facility

:05:56.:05:58.

will be available to them for the whole time.

:05:59.:06:02.

The evidence today heard claims that Tunisian law enforcement

:06:03.:06:04.

units delayed their arrival on the scene because they were too

:06:05.:06:07.

frightened to tackle the gunman before police arrived.

:06:08.:06:12.

Relatives of the victims have waited a year and a half for the inquest

:06:13.:06:16.

to get underway and the hope now is that they will finally

:06:17.:06:18.

Additional checks are being carried on a North Sea helicopter fleet

:06:19.:06:26.

grounded last week over safety fears.

:06:27.:06:27.

It follows an incident on a North Sea platform last month,

:06:28.:06:30.

which saw an S92 spin more than 180 degrees on landing.

:06:31.:06:32.

Operators are now being told to increase inspections

:06:33.:06:34.

Scotland's biggest council has confirmed it is planning to put up

:06:35.:06:48.

It will be the first time bills have gone up in Glasgow for 12 years.

:06:49.:06:53.

It is able to put the bills up because the government is ending

:06:54.:06:56.

Earlier, I asked our local government correspondent

:06:57.:06:59.

Jamie McIvor how many other councils had intimated that

:07:00.:07:01.

3% in council tax, it is about ?3 a month for a typical property.

:07:02.:07:12.

Glasgow Council said it was likely to make the rise, joining others

:07:13.:07:17.

including Borders and West Dunbartonshire.

:07:18.:07:19.

But most have given no public indication yet of their plans

:07:20.:07:21.

and South Lanarkshire is going to freeze their bills again.

:07:22.:07:25.

I would be surprised if it was the only council

:07:26.:07:30.

to do that, although it is worth pointing out that if you're in a

:07:31.:07:38.

home classed as Band E or above, then your bill will rise no

:07:39.:07:42.

matter where you live, because of changes to the system

:07:43.:07:44.

Why have so many failed to declare at this stage?

:07:45.:07:47.

I think, to be frank, in some cases, political calculations

:07:48.:07:50.

are being made ahead of the council elections in May.

:07:51.:07:53.

The councils are deciding whether a further freeze or rise of

:07:54.:07:57.

under 3% could prove popular with some voters or

:07:58.:07:59.

On the other hand, some Labour councillors I've spoken to

:08:00.:08:03.

feel they are caught between a rock and a hard place.

:08:04.:08:05.

They argue a 3% rise in the council tax will not

:08:06.:08:08.

be enough to avoid cuts, so they're cautious basically about something

:08:09.:08:11.

that could look to the public like they're being asked to pay more

:08:12.:08:14.

On other hand, the council tax is really the only tool

:08:15.:08:22.

at their disposal when it comes to income and they could find

:08:23.:08:25.

it hard not to use that to try to mitigate

:08:26.:08:28.

what they say are cuts in savings that they do not want to make.

:08:29.:08:31.

We should know the plans of every council by mid-February.

:08:32.:08:38.

The former chairman of UKIP in Scotland has admitted in court

:08:39.:08:41.

to making sexual phone calls to ten women.

:08:42.:08:43.

Arthur Misty Thackeray, who was chief of staff

:08:44.:08:45.

for the party's MEP David Coburn, pleaded guilty at Glasgow Sheriff

:08:46.:08:47.

Court to the offences over a five-year period.

:08:48.:08:49.

The salmon fishing season has opened in the Tay with the announcement

:08:50.:08:57.

of plans aimed at significantly boosting fish stocks.

:08:58.:09:00.

It is claimed that restoring water to a 17-mile section

:09:01.:09:02.

of the river system will do more for salmon fishing in the area

:09:03.:09:05.

than any other single project. Steven Godden reports.

:09:06.:09:07.

It begins with pipes and drums in the village square.

:09:08.:09:09.

A procession towards the banks of the Tay.

:09:10.:09:13.

After the whisky blessing, the ceremonial

:09:14.:09:15.

first cast, marking the start of salmon season.

:09:16.:09:19.

We never knew them before and we met them here on the banks of the river.

:09:20.:09:29.

It is a good day out and, hopefully, this year, a nice

:09:30.:09:32.

catch of fish was up with a shared goal they come from all

:09:33.:09:35.

It is always on the radar of fishing, whether it is

:09:36.:09:41.

salmon fishing or any other kind, millions of pounds coming

:09:42.:09:43.

That all depends on a thriving salmon population.

:09:44.:09:50.

As a new season arrives, developments elsewhere

:09:51.:09:52.

in the catchment of those managing the river cause

:09:53.:09:54.

This is the River Garry, an important tributary of the Tay.

:09:55.:10:02.

Today, the snowmelt is flowing, but over the past 50 years or so,

:10:03.:10:05.

the hydroelectric scheme has left this part of the river

:10:06.:10:08.

Work is underway to change that, by opening up a new stretch

:10:09.:10:13.

We estimate it could produce about 1,500 extra spring salmon into

:10:14.:10:20.

the Tay catchment, a significant addition to the river.

:10:21.:10:26.

And there is no other project in Scotland that

:10:27.:10:28.

anyone could do, and individual project, that could actually be

:10:29.:10:31.

Prompted by an EU directive, there is a trade-off.

:10:32.:10:41.

Clearly, we will lose some generation - around

:10:42.:10:43.

0.5% of our annual hydro generation capacity.

:10:44.:10:50.

So, it is not insignificant, as I say, but we say

:10:51.:10:53.

that the River Garry is a special case where it makes sense to

:10:54.:10:56.

Last autumn was poor, but spring catches have

:10:57.:11:04.

improved in recent years, with conservation

:11:05.:11:06.

More fish in the river means more chance of catching one.

:11:07.:11:16.

For these guys, something worth drinking to.

:11:17.:11:26.

Over to Kirsteen now, with the weather outlook

:11:27.:11:28.

An area of high pressure to the south west of the UK

:11:29.:11:36.

will drift its way over towards the North Sea

:11:37.:11:39.

leaving us with a mild south-westerly airflow.

:11:40.:11:44.

Some clear spells this evening, initially in the east.

:11:45.:11:46.

However, clouding over as the night progresses,

:11:47.:11:48.

with some and patchy outbreaks of rain continuing to feed

:11:49.:11:51.

Misty and murky conditions for many of us,

:11:52.:11:53.

with extensive hill fog around the west and south, especially.

:11:54.:12:01.

as we go through the day, leaving largely dry conditions.

:12:02.:12:19.

Lots of cloud, but look at these temperatures.

:12:20.:12:26.

Double figures for all of us, with highs of around 12 Celsius.

:12:27.:12:37.

The best of any greatness in eastern areas. Across the rest of the United

:12:38.:12:45.

Kingdom, cloud affecting the north of England. The best of the

:12:46.:12:51.

brightness in the far South east. In Scotland, eyes of 12 Celsius, more

:12:52.:12:55.

than double for the average this time of year. Tomorrow, largely dry.

:12:56.:13:03.

Wind strengthening from the South west. Perhaps touching gale force at

:13:04.:13:17.

times. Into Whitley, little in the week of change. The best of any

:13:18.:13:25.

sunshine in the east. Temperatures and 10- Northern Celsius. I thirsty,

:13:26.:13:30.

on repeat once again. A very similar picture.

:13:31.:13:40.

Parents are facing an explosion in the number of children saying

:13:41.:13:45.

It was like a battle, like in a war zone. She would literally scream.

:13:46.:13:49.
