we have the writer and illustrator, Raymond Briggs. Now on BBC One

:00:00.:00:00.

The Prime Minister has accused the SNP of playing politics over

:00:00.:00:08.

the threat of a second independence referendum - but she refused to be

:00:09.:00:11.

drawn on whether the UK Government would block one.

:00:12.:00:15.

Theresa May was speaking in a wide-ranging interview

:00:16.:00:17.

The First Minister Nicola Sturgeon hit back tonight, saying

:00:18.:00:21.

the Scottish Government had been met by a brick wall of

:00:22.:00:25.

Jackie Bird asked Theresa May first about the aftermath of the EU vote.

:00:26.:00:56.

But when we look at what we want to do in the future in terms

:00:57.:01:00.

of the UK and its access to the single market

:01:01.:01:02.

and the European Union I want a comprehensive free-trade deal.

:01:03.:01:04.

I want to be able to see the best possible trading arrangement

:01:05.:01:07.

From Scotland's point of view, the single market that matters most

:01:08.:01:11.

in terms of trade for Scotland is the single market

:01:12.:01:13.

In recent days, Sir John Major and Tony Blair have both warned

:01:14.:01:17.

that this hard Brexit makes a second Scottish independence

:01:18.:01:19.

I am sure you have heard that Nicola Sturgeon describes it

:01:20.:01:23.

The question isn't whether there could be a referendum

:01:24.:01:26.

I think in 2014 the people of Scotland voted to

:01:27.:01:30.

It was described by the SNP as a once in a generation vote that

:01:31.:01:34.

I don't think people want a referendum today.

:01:35.:01:37.

It's about delivering for people on the issues that matter to them

:01:38.:01:43.

I can't help but feel that SNP has tunnel vision about independence.

:01:44.:01:47.

I think people want the SNP Government to get on with dealing

:01:48.:01:49.

the issues they want to see addressed day-to-day, the state

:01:50.:01:52.

Education used to be such a great flagship for Scotland,

:01:53.:01:55.

but sadly in recent years we've seen that deteriorating.

:01:56.:01:59.

These are the issues that matter to people day-to-day.

:02:00.:02:01.

They want the SNP Government to get on with the day job.

:02:02.:02:07.

We know what the SNP Government thinks and they are saying a second

:02:08.:02:10.

independence referendum is all but inevitable.

:02:11.:02:14.

You have the power to grant that or not.

:02:15.:02:18.

If they ask for it, if there is a vote in the Scottish

:02:19.:02:21.

parliament and they say, we demand a second

:02:22.:02:23.

independence referendum, will you give permission?

:02:24.:02:29.

I think the SNP needs to move away from the tunnel vision

:02:30.:02:32.

of independence and focus on the issues that matter

:02:33.:02:36.

You are saying that the Scottish Government has tunnel vision

:02:37.:02:41.

You have the power to stop that by saying, you may want a second

:02:42.:02:48.

but it isn't going to happen, focus on running Scotland.

:02:49.:02:53.

Are you saying you are not going to do that?

:02:54.:03:00.

At the moment, I think people in Scotland are clear

:03:01.:03:03.

I think the SNP is exhibiting tunnel vision.

:03:04.:03:10.

I think people want an SNP government getting

:03:11.:03:13.

So why was your clarion call, looking ahead to the local council

:03:14.:03:22.

elections, that if you vote for the Conservative Party,

:03:23.:03:26.

you are voting against a second Scottish independence referendum?

:03:27.:03:30.

In that case, you are playing the same game.

:03:31.:03:34.

No, we are saying something simple that I think is resonating

:03:35.:03:40.

with people, which is that actually I think people want to see people

:03:41.:03:43.

elected, as councillors, as MSPs, who are focusing on the issues that

:03:44.:03:48.

matter to them, and the message of the Conservative Party

:03:49.:03:50.

is that we will focus on those issues day-to-day.

:03:51.:03:56.

Do you believe the SNP Government has a mandate to call a second

:03:57.:03:59.

Obviously, significant powers have been devolved to Scotland.

:04:00.:04:07.

The SNP government have the opportunity to use those powers

:04:08.:04:10.

to improve the day-to-day life of people in Scotland.

:04:11.:04:15.

In recent days, there has been talk of powers being taken

:04:16.:04:21.

from the Scottish Government post-Brexit.

:04:22.:04:22.

I am clear, we are not going to take powers away.

:04:23.:04:27.

We need to look at those powers that currently reside in Brussels,

:04:28.:04:34.

when they come back, when the UK leaves the EU,

:04:35.:04:37.

In some areas, we will need to ensure there is a UK framework

:04:38.:04:43.

to make sure that the single market of the UK that matters for Scotland

:04:44.:04:47.

What we are talking to all of the devolved

:04:48.:04:53.

administrations about is, when we do that, when we bring

:04:54.:04:58.

powers back from Brussels, what should stay at a UK level

:04:59.:05:02.

and what should be further devolved to the devolved administrations.

:05:03.:05:07.

So no powers that are currently there will be taken away.

:05:08.:05:09.

Our political editor Brian Taylor joined me earlier from Holyrood

:05:10.:05:18.

when I put it to him that the Scottish Government had

:05:19.:05:21.

some hard-hitting words of its own tonight.

:05:22.:05:25.

You won't be surprised to know that the First Minister takes a

:05:26.:05:28.

First of all saying that the Conservative UK

:05:29.:05:41.

Government have no mandate to govern Scotland, no mandate to take

:05:42.:05:43.

Scotland out of the EU and the single market

:05:44.:05:46.

against the professed will of the Scottish people but, as

:05:47.:05:48.

you mentioned, that argument that, in the discussions that have taken

:05:49.:05:51.

place over Scotland's contribution and role

:05:52.:05:52.

Scotland of Brexit, Nicola Sturgeon argues

:05:53.:06:01.

that she has offered consensus and compromise and has been met

:06:02.:06:03.

by a brick wall of Tory intransigence.

:06:04.:06:05.

It might suit both governments to maintain

:06:06.:06:07.

discussions at some level and in some fashion for a wee while.

:06:08.:06:10.

It might suit the UK Government as they

:06:11.:06:12.

seek to find some way, any way, of pre-empting a second

:06:13.:06:15.

independence referendum and it might suit Nicola

:06:16.:06:20.

Sturgeon as she seeks to demonstrate to the people of Scotland that she

:06:21.:06:23.

has sought every avenue, pursued every potential by way within the

:06:24.:06:32.

ambit of the UK, short of moving instantly to that referendum.

:06:33.:06:35.

Do I think there is likely to be a referendum on independence?

:06:36.:06:37.

Fans and major figures from the world of football have been

:06:38.:06:42.

paying tribute to the former Celtic defender and Lisbon Lion

:06:43.:06:44.

Tommy Gemmell, who has died at the age of 73.

:06:45.:06:49.

He scored one of the goals in Celtic's 2-1 victory in the 1967

:06:50.:06:53.

European Cup Final against Inter Milan.

:06:54.:06:55.

50 years on from Celtic's greatest triumph, supporters and fans from

:06:56.:07:21.

other clubs remember the man who turned the dream into a reality.

:07:22.:07:23.

Tommy Gemmell scored Celtic's opening goal in their 2-1 win over

:07:24.:07:26.

Inter Milan in the European cup final in Lisbon.

:07:27.:07:28.

Nobody could see us winning the match.

:07:29.:07:30.

We had a couldn't care less attitude and we played with the class

:07:31.:07:33.

and style that we played with throughout the season.

:07:34.:07:35.

As I say, we didn't have any pressure at all.

:07:36.:07:38.

Tommy Gemmell's goal that day was one of the great iconic moments

:07:39.:07:41.

It is imprinted on the mind, not just because of its significance

:07:42.:07:49.

but because of the spectacular nature of the goal.

:07:50.:07:53.

He had a long stride, covering the ground quickly,

:07:54.:07:55.

tremendous leg strength and a superb shot, and that all came distilled

:07:56.:08:00.

At Celtic Park today, two of Tommy Gemmell's former

:08:01.:08:13.

team-mates shared memories of a friend and former Lisbon Lion.

:08:14.:08:16.

He was one of the best fullbacks in Europe at the time.

:08:17.:08:18.

The most important thing for us was the dressing room,

:08:19.:08:25.

because he was so close to each of us.

:08:26.:08:28.

I know he looked like him, but he believed he was.

:08:29.:08:32.

As well as a career with Celtic, Tommy Gemmell played

:08:33.:08:40.

18 times for Scotland, with mixed results.

:08:41.:08:49.

COMMENTATOR: Oh, that was uncalled for.

:08:50.:08:51.

Everybody feels sorry for him but at the time it's

:08:52.:08:54.

just a sort of thing, you can't stop yourself doing it.

:08:55.:08:56.

It's on the spur of the moment and that's it.

:08:57.:08:59.

The undeniable fact is that Tommy Gemmell will be remembered

:09:00.:09:03.

mainly for his Celtic performances and as a Lisbon Lion.

:09:04.:09:10.

For us, in this particular year, the 50th anniversary, it's so sad.

:09:11.:09:15.

Although we are mourning Tommy, I would hope we can celebrate

:09:16.:09:25.

some way as well, celebrate who Tommy was and what

:09:26.:09:28.

he did for this club and what that team did for Celtic.

:09:29.:09:33.

A report into the death of a fisherman from Newton Stewart

:09:34.:09:35.

has concluded that he might have survived if he'd been

:09:36.:09:38.

31-year-old Scott Rennie never recovered consciousness

:09:39.:09:44.

after spending ten minutes in the water when he fell overboard

:09:45.:09:48.

from the Kirkcudbright-based scallop dredger King Challenger.

:09:49.:09:50.

Its owners have since issued new safety guidance to crews.

:09:51.:10:01.

The Aberdeen chairman says the club's proposed ?50 million

:10:02.:10:03.

new stadium complex could help prevent the city becoming

:10:04.:10:05.

a backwater after the recent decline in the oil industry.

:10:06.:10:08.

Despite some local objections to the project, Stewart Milne

:10:09.:10:10.

wants to move the club from its traditional Pittodrie home

:10:11.:10:12.

to a new site just outside the city at Kingsford in time for the start

:10:13.:10:16.

Not only will we be setting Aberdeen Football Club up

:10:17.:10:20.

for hopefully the next half century at least, it can play a major

:10:21.:10:26.

bearing in how Aberdeen as a city is perceived out there in a wider

:10:27.:10:31.

world, that we are a city determined to go places.

:10:32.:10:39.

We want to build on the reputation we've got and not, as the North Sea

:10:40.:10:44.

oil starts to fall off, end up being a backwater.

:10:45.:10:50.

Tennis - Andy Murray saved seven match points

:10:51.:10:54.

in a second set tie-break, before beating Philipp

:10:55.:10:56.

Kohlschreiber in the Dubai Championships quarterfinals.

:10:57.:11:00.

The world number one needed eight set points to edge the German

:11:01.:11:04.

20-18 in the tie-break and level the match.

:11:05.:11:08.

Murray then raced to victory in the final set to win the match.

:11:09.:11:13.

Let's get the weather outlook for tonight

:11:14.:11:14.

Good evening. We are under Cleveland Gaza crossing after night. There is
