of the investigation into missing RAF airman Corrie Mckeague,

:00:20.:00:23.

was carrying a significantly heavier load than was first thought,

:00:24.:00:26.

according to police. The 23-year-old from Fife vanished

:00:27.:00:32.

during a night out with This is the landfill site at Milton

:00:33.:00:34.

near Cambridge where the police are now searching for the body

:00:35.:00:44.

of Corrie McKeague. He went missing from this area

:00:45.:00:47.

of the recent Edmunds. It is called the horseshoe,

:00:48.:00:50.

and it is full of waste bins. A rubbish lorry which made

:00:51.:01:00.

a collection from the hHrseshoe on the night Corrie went missing

:01:01.:01:03.

was involved in the early stages At the time, it was thought

:01:04.:01:06.

the lorry weighed just 11 kilos. This evening, police have revealed

:01:07.:01:09.

that the weight of the waste collection on that night

:01:10.:01:19.

was actually over 100 kilos. I don't understand how the process

:01:20.:01:22.

has allowed him to get to landfill. That was one thing I think

:01:23.:01:25.

was trying to keep me believing that Was that I was so sure,

:01:26.:01:32.

because of what the police have said to us, that he couldn't go

:01:33.:01:36.

through that process and it doesn't The police say the error was made

:01:37.:01:39.

by the company who provide the data. In a statement, Suffolk

:01:40.:01:50.

Police go on to say... Once I have found Corrie,

:01:51.:02:00.

then the questions will come as to how this happened,

:02:01.:02:03.

how he has ended up there. Finding Corrie is the only thing

:02:04.:02:11.

that we need to be thinking about. The mix-up relates to the arrest

:02:12.:02:24.

last week of a 26-year-old man on suspicion of attempting

:02:25.:02:26.

to pervert the course of justice. A second man was also

:02:27.:02:28.

interviewed under caution. Both men have been told

:02:29.:02:31.

they will face no further action. To a man who poisoned his wife.

:02:32.:03:02.

David Smith is starting at sentence for the poisoning his wife.

:03:03.:03:08.

Elizabeth Smith left court, shaken but satisfied.

:03:09.:03:09.

She had just seen her husband jailed.

:03:10.:03:10.

This man, David Smith, claimed to be an SAS war hero

:03:11.:03:13.

In reality, he was a poisoner, a lie and thief.

:03:14.:03:19.

When I first met him, he was the kindest...

:03:20.:03:21.

They were married, but he lived in England.

:03:22.:03:25.

They saw each other every couple of weeks.

:03:26.:03:27.

The plan was to buy a place together eventually.

:03:28.:03:29.

He told her he had been any SAS and involved in the siege of

:03:30.:03:32.

He seemed loving and attentive, making

:03:33.:03:36.

One day, at work at her hairdressing business, she collapsed.

:03:37.:03:47.

I was working and chatting and I would

:03:48.:03:51.

I would think, God, thinking it was my head.

:03:52.:04:00.

I was in bed for almost two years on and off.

:04:01.:04:07.

They thought I had early stages of motor

:04:08.:04:10.

He was finally caught after faking a break-in at Elizabeth's home.

:04:11.:04:22.

Thousands of pounds of her money was found in his car.

:04:23.:04:26.

For me, there were no signs of anything.

:04:27.:04:32.

Even about the SAS, everything, that part of his

:04:33.:04:33.

life, the only time, at one point, I said to him,

:04:34.:04:36.

I haven't seen anything about your past.

:04:37.:04:38.

As he left to go to jail, does she think he is a

:04:39.:04:41.

I don't think that man knows what love is.

:04:42.:04:46.

I want people to be aware that there are

:04:47.:04:49.

these people out there and they are very, very dangerous man.

:04:50.:04:54.

On sentencing him to three and a half

:04:55.:04:57.

years in prison, the sheriff told David Smith he embarks on a

:04:58.:05:00.

prolonged, evil course of criminal conduct that caused mental and

:05:01.:05:03.

Almost half of unfilled NHS consultant posts in Scotland

:05:04.:05:13.

have remained vacant for the last six months.

:05:14.:05:16.

Figures just published by health boards also show a 15% rise

:05:17.:05:21.

in the number of vacant nursing and midwifery posts

:05:22.:05:25.

Doctors and nursing unions say it's having an impact on patient care.

:05:26.:05:31.

The Scottish Government say record numbers of people are now

:05:32.:05:34.

Here's our Health Correspondent, Lisa Summers

:05:35.:05:41.

It is in areas like the Highlands that the challenge of recruitment is

:05:42.:05:44.

9% of consultant posts here are unfilled.

:05:45.:05:47.

In Shetland, paediatric orthopaedic surgeon Simon

:05:48.:05:59.

Barker has travelled from Aberdeen to provide a visiting clinic.

:06:00.:06:02.

It makes a huge difference to his patients to have the doctor come to

:06:03.:06:05.

It was difficult to go to Aberdeen every week.

:06:06.:06:10.

Stretch that foot, the naughty one there.

:06:11.:06:19.

Simon Barker says it puts additional pressure on

:06:20.:06:21.

We have a worsening crisis of longer term vacancies in

:06:22.:06:28.

There is a huge amount of pressure on clinicians in

:06:29.:06:36.

that apartment to maintain the service.

:06:37.:06:38.

At the other end of the country, they are having recruitment

:06:39.:06:42.

I worked in hospital here and it was very

:06:43.:06:45.

difficult to try to get doctors to come and work.

:06:46.:06:49.

They can't seem to get doctors that want to come here.

:06:50.:06:55.

I don't know if it is because it is such a small place.

:06:56.:07:01.

This local GP practice has been advertising for

:07:02.:07:04.

Now it is to be taken over by the health board.

:07:05.:07:12.

Most of us are close to retirement age and there

:07:13.:07:16.

are very few GPs who will still be GPs in ten years' time.

:07:17.:07:23.

The Government points to record levels

:07:24.:07:25.

of training places and says 1000 new staff have been taken

:07:26.:07:28.

The Health Secretary says even then the

:07:29.:07:33.

Government is working to fill vacant posts.

:07:34.:07:37.

We are working with networks across more than one hospital, for

:07:38.:07:39.

example, to help those rural general hospitals

:07:40.:07:47.

posts that are more difficult to fill if they were stand-alone.

:07:48.:07:51.

We have brought in things like recruitment bonuses for GPs in

:07:52.:07:53.

Nursing unions say the recruitment crisis is having

:07:54.:07:58.

Nurses come out every day, trying to do a

:07:59.:08:02.

good job, to look after the most vulnerable in our society.

:08:03.:08:05.

If they are telling us they don't have the

:08:06.:08:12.

resources to do the job to the best of their ability, we should to that.

:08:13.:08:16.

Today's figures are a gauge of the pressures on NHS staff.

:08:17.:08:19.

A workforce plan for the future is due in

:08:20.:08:21.

New laws will be introduced to address legal concerns

:08:22.:08:25.

in the controversial named person scheme meaning a further

:08:26.:08:27.

The Supreme Court ruled last year that information-sharing

:08:28.:08:30.

elements were incompatible with human rights law.

:08:31.:08:33.

The Conservatives say the whole idea should be abolished.

:08:34.:08:37.

Here's our political correspondent Andrew Kerr.

:08:38.:08:44.

The Conservatives like to think they have been driving

:08:45.:08:46.

the opposition against the named person scheme.

:08:47.:08:48.

The party leader was on a visit to Lothian buses this morning.

:08:49.:08:51.

She voiced her anger again at the controversial plan.

:08:52.:08:55.

At the same time, the Education Secretary was

:08:56.:08:58.

trying to beat his policy into shape.

:08:59.:08:59.

John Swinney came to parliament to tell MSPs what he

:09:00.:09:02.

I propose to bring forward a bill that will include new

:09:03.:09:07.

provisions on when and how information can be shared by hand

:09:08.:09:09.

The new provisions will ensure that we

:09:10.:09:14.

address the Supreme Court judgment, live up to our objective of

:09:15.:09:17.

supporting children and young people, and give them and their

:09:18.:09:19.

family reassurance that their rights are fully respected.

:09:20.:09:27.

The new provisions mean information will be

:09:28.:09:28.

shared without consent, only in exceptional circumstances.

:09:29.:09:32.

Ministers expect that will address the Supreme

:09:33.:09:34.

Court's ruling that elements of policy were incompatible with the

:09:35.:09:38.

It is hoped the plan for young people

:09:39.:09:46.

to have a single point of contact, such as a teacher or health visitor

:09:47.:09:50.

to look out for their welfare, will be in place by next year.

:09:51.:09:54.

The Conservatives continue to dismiss

:09:55.:09:55.

The whole scheme is an absolute dog's breakfast, it has

:09:56.:09:59.

been kicked into the long grass, it was ruled unlawful, John Swinney

:10:00.:10:03.

came to Parliament to try to clarify things.

:10:04.:10:04.

He has not actually given any information about what exactly

:10:05.:10:07.

We know parents across the country do not want this, that

:10:08.:10:10.

He would be better off swallowing his

:10:11.:10:14.

pride, scrapping the whole thing and starting again

:10:15.:10:15.

John Swinney accused the Conservatives of fuelling

:10:16.:10:20.

The Education Secretary says he is strong and robust on

:10:21.:10:24.

It is clear John Swinney is determined to

:10:25.:10:29.

keep fighting on this controversial issue.

:10:30.:10:31.

He will face plenty of Parliamentary battles ahead.

:10:32.:10:42.

Almost 500 Scottish youth football coaches

:10:43.:10:43.

and officials have been suspended for failing

:10:44.:10:45.

A BBC Scotland investigation in December revealed more

:10:46.:10:50.

than 2,000 coaches were working in youth football

:10:51.:10:53.

The Association asked all to complete the checks

:10:54.:11:00.

Holyrood's Health and Sport Committee heard those who didn't

:11:01.:11:05.

comply have been suspended, and are not permitted to take part

:11:06.:11:07.

around 10 Celsius. Not feeling too bad if you are at shelter from wind.

:12:55.:12:59.

The rest of the afternoon, we see those showers coming in. We have a
