BBC Scotland has learnt that cameras installed on boats

:00:00.:00:16.

to monitor the ban on so-called discards are being

:00:17.:00:18.

The number of them has halved in three years,

:00:19.:00:21.

and WWF Scotland says there's now no effective monitoring of the ban.

:00:22.:00:24.

Our environment correspondent Kevin Keane reports.

:00:25.:00:29.

It's a controversial practice which all sides want to end

:00:30.:00:32.

but the contention is over how to do it.

:00:33.:00:34.

Discards are the dead fish thrown back into the sea because the boat

:00:35.:00:37.

It's now being banned, a few species at a time.

:00:38.:00:45.

Three years ago, boats were offered a chance to install

:00:46.:00:47.

cameras to help the monitoring of the ban.

:00:48.:00:50.

As an incentive, skippers were allowed to bring back more fish.

:00:51.:00:53.

But for cod, the scheme has ended and the cameras

:00:54.:00:57.

are being handed back, which is causing alarm.

:00:58.:01:01.

We have significant concerns about the low levels of monitoring

:01:02.:01:04.

taking place of what's happening at sea.

:01:05.:01:08.

In fact, the number of vessels monitored is only around 1%,

:01:09.:01:12.

so we are concerned that we are not able to know what is happening

:01:13.:01:17.

and whether the ban is being adhered to.

:01:18.:01:21.

With many species found in mixed fisheries, where they swim together,

:01:22.:01:24.

a netload might fill their quota for a fish they don't want,

:01:25.:01:28.

For fishermen, the problem is not the monitoring,

:01:29.:01:33.

The cameras never did exist to do that.

:01:34.:01:38.

They were never meant as a compliance tool.

:01:39.:01:42.

We had hoped they would contribute to the science.

:01:43.:01:46.

We are nowhere near the sort of technology to allow that

:01:47.:01:49.

to happen, but in the fullness of time it might do.

:01:50.:01:52.

To use them as an extremely expensive compliance tool

:01:53.:01:55.

The Fisheries Minister has been unavailable to interview today,

:01:56.:02:02.

but in a statement, the Scottish Government said...

:02:03.:02:21.

Fishermen say the ban is inflexible and are pinning their hopes

:02:22.:02:24.

on a new, post-Brexit fishing policy to produce a solution

:02:25.:02:28.

The number of schoolchildren classed as having additional support needs

:02:29.:02:36.

has gone up dramatically in recent years.

:02:37.:02:39.

Last year, nearly a quarter of pupils had an

:02:40.:02:41.

But the number of dedicated teachers has fallen by a fifth in five years.

:02:42.:02:46.

While children with additional needs usually stay in mainstream schools,

:02:47.:02:48.

sometimes this isn't the right option.

:02:49.:02:49.

Our education correspondent Jamie McIvor reports.

:02:50.:02:51.

Falkland House in Fife is a specialist facility for boys

:02:52.:02:53.

It helps children with autism, ADHD, Tourette's and social,

:02:54.:03:01.

Some of its success stories are remarkable.

:03:02.:03:14.

When I was 12, I couldn't read or write.

:03:15.:03:17.

I went from, I'm currently now in college doing my intro to sport

:03:18.:03:23.

and hopefully be ready for university by the end of the course.

:03:24.:03:29.

You get the personal attention that you need.

:03:30.:03:32.

In mainstream schools, there are 20 people in a class

:03:33.:03:39.

He was diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder

:03:40.:03:42.

I think the authorities would have been happy for him to struggle

:03:43.:03:48.

through secondary school, but we had to get the headteacher

:03:49.:03:53.

and another support network to fight for us.

:03:54.:03:58.

Karen's ten-year-old son is at Falkland House.

:03:59.:04:01.

He has Asperger's syndrome and was desperately unhappy

:04:02.:04:03.

He was admitted into Yorkhill and the childhood

:04:04.:04:14.

He was admitted into Yorkhill and the childhood and family

:04:15.:04:16.

It was an emergency admission because things got that extreme.

:04:17.:04:20.

He did not want to be in this world any more.

:04:21.:04:22.

She also faced battle with the council.

:04:23.:04:24.

They disbanded the disability team within social work and generic

:04:25.:04:26.

social workers took over, who didn't have an understanding.

:04:27.:04:32.

Provision varies across Scotland, while the number of specialist

:04:33.:04:35.

We are lacking educational psychologists.

:04:36.:04:41.

We are training them, but the numbers are decreasing.

:04:42.:04:45.

We would like to see a review of how we are supporting

:04:46.:04:49.

the training of educational psychologists, their role.

:04:50.:04:54.

There's widespread support for the principle of trying to keep

:04:55.:04:56.

The Government is looking at the guidance.

:04:57.:05:02.

The Government is currently reviewing what is available

:05:03.:05:05.

on the principle of mainstreaming to make sure it is appropriate

:05:06.:05:10.

for our times and meets the needs of the current educational environment.

:05:11.:05:14.

Removing a child from a mainstream school is always

:05:15.:05:16.

The fear is that a lack of money or specialist staff may

:05:17.:05:22.

sometimes make things harder for youngsters who face

:05:23.:05:25.

Celtic face a battle with the English league

:05:26.:05:36.

leaders Chelsea for one of their prize assets.

:05:37.:05:38.

Craig Gordon has already been the subject of one

:05:39.:05:40.

And his manager Brendan Rodgers maintains he wants the goalkeeper

:05:41.:05:46.

to sign a new deal at Celtic rather than head for the riches of England.

:05:47.:05:50.

He's caught the eye of the top team in England.

:05:51.:05:53.

Chelsea are also one of the richest, and could offer Craig Gordon

:05:54.:05:56.

At Celtic, though, he is key to present and future plans.

:05:57.:06:03.

He is someone I want to keep for a longer period, so I would hope

:06:04.:06:08.

that the only thing that comes out of this is that we can renegotiate

:06:09.:06:12.

with him and get him here for a longer period than the

:06:13.:06:16.

18 months he has left, and he can get on with working and playing

:06:17.:06:20.

at a club that I know he loves being at.

:06:21.:06:22.

Brendan Rodgers does not want to sell, but he did say every

:06:23.:06:25.

If Chelsea meet the valuation, what does the player have to weigh up?

:06:26.:06:32.

Will he have first-team football at Chelsea?

:06:33.:06:36.

He has it at Celtic and has performed extremely well.

:06:37.:06:40.

He has changed his whole game under Brendan and he is enjoying himself.

:06:41.:06:45.

For him to go down and the second choice...

:06:46.:06:49.

In saying that, he could work his way into the team at Chelsea

:06:50.:06:52.

Having had a bid rejected, will Chelsea come back in?

:06:53.:06:57.

I don't know about a lot of name that I rate.

:06:58.:07:10.

If the Chelsea manager does not recognise the name,

:07:11.:07:13.

He has come back pretty much from the dead to be

:07:14.:07:23.

He had a hard spell of injury at Sunderland, but he has

:07:24.:07:28.

enjoyed his football here and hopefully he

:07:29.:07:30.

The next four days will be crucial in determining that.

:07:31.:07:34.

Chelsea have until the transfer window closes on Tuesday

:07:35.:07:37.

to make Celtic and Gordon an offer they can't refuse.

:07:38.:07:50.

And now the weather with Kirsteen. We did have sunshine across much of

:07:51.:07:57.

the country this morning, however the cloud did come rolling in from

:07:58.:08:02.

the west during the day. Thank you to our Weather Watcher in the

:08:03.:08:06.

Highlands for this stunning image. Tonight, Clady is how it stays with

:08:07.:08:13.

outbreaks of rain across many areas. Snow across the high ground and

:08:14.:08:19.

hills, with sweet in the lowlands and Central Belt. As the rain

:08:20.:08:23.

bridges into eastern areas, there will be the risk of ice.

:08:24.:08:26.

Temperatures recovering somewhat as we head into Sunday morning. Hide it

:08:27.:08:36.

from most of us tomorrow morning, gradually pulling towards the east

:08:37.:08:40.

over the course of the day. Leaving a legacy of cloud behind it, across

:08:41.:08:45.

much of central and eastern Scotland. Patchy rain continuing

:08:46.:08:50.

across eastern coastal areas into the afternoon. The best brightness

:08:51.:08:54.

tomorrow will be along western coastal areas. Through the likes of

:08:55.:09:00.

Argyll the northwest Highlands, the Western Isles and sky, we will see

:09:01.:09:03.

the odd rumble of thunder possible. Try a cost much of the North East,

:09:04.:09:10.

rain in Shetland, although the winds easing here. For the rest of the UK,

:09:11.:09:15.

a similar story to ourselves, improving from the west. Showers in

:09:16.:09:21.

Northern Ireland, otherwise cloudy with some rain and highs of 10

:09:22.:09:26.

Celsius. Tomorrow evening, that rain will pull away into the North Sea. A

:09:27.:09:31.

few showers remaining across the North West, otherwise becoming

:09:32.:09:35.

clear, cold with a widespread frost developing. For a Sunday,

:09:36.:09:39.

high-pressure overhead keeping the weather dry unsettled. Elsewhere,

:09:40.:09:45.

this rain were beginning to move in. That may just reach the very far

:09:46.:09:50.

south of Scotland in the afternoon. Otherwise looking dry wood spells of

:09:51.:09:55.

sunshine. That's the forecast. Thank you very much, that's it from

:09:56.:09:58.

everyone on the late

:09:59.:10:01.
