The Prime Minister has promised a new, more active Union,

:00:07.:00:09.

in an effort to strengthen the links between Scotland and England.

:00:10.:00:12.

At the Conservative conference in Glasgow, Theresa May warned

:00:13.:00:14.

against what she calls allowing the UK to "drift apart".

:00:15.:00:17.

The SNP say Conservative claims to be interested

:00:18.:00:19.

This from our political editor, Brian Taylor.

:00:20.:00:26.

They are Tory, Unionist, they don't need convincing.

:00:27.:00:28.

The Prime Minister knows that others do.

:00:29.:00:31.

She argued that Brexit made the unity of the UK more vital still.

:00:32.:00:36.

As Britain leaves the European Union and we forge a new place

:00:37.:00:39.

in the world, the strength and stability of our union

:00:40.:00:42.

She deplored a tendency for Whitehall to forget Scotland.

:00:43.:01:00.

She wanted a new, active Union, outside the EU.

:01:01.:01:04.

At all times, we will seek to strengthen and enhance the ties

:01:05.:01:08.

I am determined to ensure that as we leave the EU,

:01:09.:01:17.

we do so as one United Kingdom, which prospers outside the EU

:01:18.:01:21.

For farming and fishing, that might mean returning powers

:01:22.:01:31.

and subsidy from Brussels, only to create new common

:01:32.:01:33.

Still no word as to what the Prime Minister does if Nicola Sturgeon

:01:34.:01:42.

demands the power to hold another independence referendum.

:01:43.:01:47.

But it might go towards Scotland's interests if she does not,

:01:48.:01:52.

because if the SNP got another and lost, they can't have another.

:01:53.:01:58.

As the British Government, we should have a say

:01:59.:02:00.

on when the referendum is held and what the question might be.

:02:01.:02:05.

We do street stalls against a second referendum and people elbow

:02:06.:02:07.

each other out of the way to sign the petition.

:02:08.:02:14.

The Scottish Secretary appeals to the First Minister to ditch talks

:02:15.:02:17.

of a second referendum, but confirmed a possible process.

:02:18.:02:21.

If there is a request for an independence referendum,

:02:22.:02:24.

the process is the same as previously.

:02:25.:02:27.

There would have to be agreement between the governments.

:02:28.:02:31.

We have always been clear there could be another

:02:32.:02:33.

Our argument is that there should not be one.

:02:34.:02:40.

Back on stage, the final act was the Act of Union.

:02:41.:02:43.

We are four nations, but at heart we are one people.

:02:44.:02:47.

That solidarity is the essence of our United Kingdom

:02:48.:02:51.

and is the surest safeguard of its future.

:02:52.:02:55.

Let us live up to that high ideal and let us never stop making

:02:56.:02:59.

loudly and clearly the positive, optimistic and passionate case

:03:00.:03:06.

for our precious union of nations, and of people.

:03:07.:03:11.

A woman driver has died after a two-car collision in Moray.

:03:12.:03:21.

It happened on the A96 Keith to Elgin road

:03:22.:03:24.

Another woman driver was taken to Dr Gray's Hospital.

:03:25.:03:30.

The road remains closed and diversions are in place.

:03:31.:03:34.

The crew of a fishing boat are recovering tonight

:03:35.:03:36.

after a lucky escape when their boat began to sink off Shetland.

:03:37.:03:40.

The crew of the Ocean Way were forced to jump into the sea

:03:41.:03:43.

The crew prepare to jump for their lives.

:03:44.:03:55.

In less than a minute, their 60-foot boat sinks below the waves.

:03:56.:04:01.

Just as we got alongside, the boat started to sink

:04:02.:04:03.

and the boys jumped into the water alongside the lifeboat.

:04:04.:04:07.

We fished them in and hoisted them aboard.

:04:08.:04:14.

Once she stopped moving and was rolling, it was

:04:15.:04:16.

more difficult, which was why they jumped into the water.

:04:17.:04:19.

It was safer than getting trapped between the boats.

:04:20.:04:22.

We got them on board, got their wet clothes off

:04:23.:04:32.

It was just before 7am when the crew sent out a Mayday.

:04:33.:04:41.

It is believed the vessel's trawl door may have struck

:04:42.:04:43.

For over an hour they battled to save the vessel, taking two pumps

:04:44.:04:51.

on board to try to stem the surge of water, but it was not to be.

:04:52.:04:55.

Around 10am, the fishermen arrived back in harbour.

:04:56.:05:01.

After a checkup from paramedics, who boarded the lifeboat,

:05:02.:05:03.

The final moments were the bow of the boat sticking out of the water.

:05:04.:05:11.

Less than one minute from when they decided to jump

:05:12.:05:16.

Marine accident investigators have launched an enquiry

:05:17.:05:27.

There is a warning that we are hurtling towards larger waistlines

:05:28.:05:30.

Cancer Research UK says the risk is being fuelled

:05:31.:05:35.

Tempting, isn't it, a shop full of sweets?

:05:36.:05:44.

Guidelines say that sugar should form no more than 5% of our diet,

:05:45.:05:48.

but on average, adults and children in Scotland consume

:05:49.:05:50.

According to the report, 39% of Scots will have at least one

:05:51.:05:59.

sort of confectionery every day, including sweets, cakes

:06:00.:06:03.

and biscuits, compared to 30% in England,

:06:04.:06:06.

And these statistics have led cancer specialists to give this warning.

:06:07.:06:14.

Only one in four Scots recognise that obesity is the leading

:06:15.:06:17.

It is the single leading preventable cause after smoking.

:06:18.:06:23.

Levels of awareness are low, and we know the biggest contributor

:06:24.:06:26.

Physical activity is important but diet is key, and we have seen no

:06:27.:06:33.

change in overweight or obesity rates in Scotland in a decade.

:06:34.:06:38.

Two thirds of adults and over a quarter of children in Scotland

:06:39.:06:41.

One idea from Cancer Research UK is to call on the Scottish Government

:06:42.:06:48.

to get restrictions put on promotions like multi-buys

:06:49.:06:52.

of foods that are high in sugar, fat and salt.

:06:53.:06:58.

Ministers say they are committed to tackling

:06:59.:06:59.

We will be engaging with the food industry, but we are already

:07:00.:07:06.

Barrs have announced they are re-formulating their recipe.

:07:07.:07:14.

Tesco and other retailers are changing practices as well.

:07:15.:07:18.

But why is the healthy eating message not getting through?

:07:19.:07:21.

We eat what we want, as far as I'm concerned.

:07:22.:07:27.

Advertisements in shops, I do not think they put enough

:07:28.:07:33.

out there to tell people that it is not good for you.

:07:34.:07:38.

People have formed their own food traditions, and it is very difficult

:07:39.:07:41.

I think a wee bit of chocolate is allowed.

:07:42.:07:48.

So it seems changing tastes and attitudes will take far longer

:07:49.:07:51.

than it does to choose in the sweet shop.

:07:52.:08:00.

Let's get the weekend weather forecast now, from Kirsteen.

:08:01.:08:07.

Good evening. We have had some lovely spells of sunshine again

:08:08.:08:14.

today across the North. And a lovely sunset this evening. Thank you to

:08:15.:08:19.

one of our weather watchers in the Highlands for this picture. Tonight,

:08:20.:08:23.

a cloudy prospect for most. Outbreaks of rain, the clearest

:08:24.:08:29.

skies will be across the far North. Perhaps a touch of frost. Tomorrow

:08:30.:08:34.

is mostly cloudy, but there are bits of rain pushing North during the

:08:35.:08:38.

morning. Due to the persistent and at times heavy nature of the rain

:08:39.:08:42.

across parts of the East and North East, we have a Met Office yellow

:08:43.:08:46.

warning for the risk of some localised flooding and hazardous

:08:47.:08:50.

driving conditions. Tomorrow afternoon, I think we should see

:08:51.:08:54.

considerable improvement across the light of the prison Galloway,

:08:55.:08:57.

towards the Borders, with skies brightening here at times. Across

:08:58.:09:02.

much of the Central Belt, a drier prospect tomorrow afternoon, albeit

:09:03.:09:06.

rather cloudy. Across much of the North, we hold onto Clodius guides

:09:07.:09:10.

and are bits of rain. The very driest and perhaps conditions in

:09:11.:09:16.

these areas tomorrow afternoon will be across Shetland. A cold feel for

:09:17.:09:20.

most, a brisk East to north-easterly wind. For the rest of the UK,

:09:21.:09:26.

tomorrow afternoon, a fairly cloudy prospect with outbreaks of rain.

:09:27.:09:31.

Generally central and eastern areas doing better with some brightness.

:09:32.:09:35.

Back on home turf, tomorrow evening, the rain continues to track North

:09:36.:09:40.

may eventually becoming confined to the Northern Isles with strong to

:09:41.:09:45.

gale force winds here into Saturday. Otherwise, largely dry. Sunday, we

:09:46.:09:49.

will have a mixture of bright spells and showers. Heaviest and most

:09:50.:09:51.

frequent in the South and West. From everyone on the late team

:09:52.:09:54.

here in Glasgow and around

:09:55.:09:59.
