Many victims of domestic abuse have suffered in silence for years,

:00:00.:00:09.

because the law didn't recognise controlling or coercive

:00:10.:00:11.

But now the Scottish Government is to create a new law to deal

:00:12.:00:17.

with the problem of psychological or emotional abuse in relationships.

:00:18.:00:21.

This report by our home affairs correspondent,

:00:22.:00:26.

Reevel Alderson, begins with the testimony of one survivor.

:00:27.:00:31.

For seven years, Nicola was the victim of psychological

:00:32.:00:34.

Difficult to report and prove, it was insidious and damaging.

:00:35.:00:40.

I was living in terror, intense fear, intense anxiety.

:00:41.:00:50.

Not depression in the way people experience depression,

:00:51.:00:52.

but extremely unhappy and constantly, constantly on edge

:00:53.:00:57.

and in fear of danger and the consequences of not

:00:58.:01:00.

complying with the behaviour the abuser expected of me.

:01:01.:01:05.

Her abuser was arrested, but there was no evidence against him,

:01:06.:01:08.

There was financial abuse, controlling the finances in a way

:01:09.:01:13.

Controlling the friends that I saw, the way that I spoke,

:01:14.:01:22.

It was complete control of every aspect of my life.

:01:23.:01:28.

the first woman met survivors of abuse.

:01:29.:01:35.

For the first time, this bill aims to define it as a crime,

:01:36.:01:40.

The bill talks about a series of incidents, which would be

:01:41.:01:46.

If you are subject to that psychological abuse,

:01:47.:01:50.

the impact on your life can be just as severe as somebody

:01:51.:01:53.

It is important the legal system recognises that.

:01:54.:02:00.

The bill has been welcomed by survivor's groups as

:02:01.:02:02.

We know from young women they struggle to notice,

:02:03.:02:08.

recognise and address patterns of coercive control and domestic

:02:09.:02:13.

This legislation is important, because it addresses the whole

:02:14.:02:21.

pattern and spectrum of domestic abuse, including other forms

:02:22.:02:24.

The Government says it knows legislation won't end

:02:25.:02:32.

the scourge of domestic abuse, but it is hoped the bill will be

:02:33.:02:35.

Police divers have started to investigate five sections

:02:36.:02:42.

of the Monklands Canal in the search for a local girl

:02:43.:02:45.

An operation began last week to scan a section of the waterway

:02:46.:02:51.

in an attempt to find the remains of 11-year-old Moira Anderson.

:02:52.:02:55.

A convicted paedophile is suspected of her murder.

:02:56.:02:57.

This is difficult and highly skilled work.

:02:58.:03:08.

There is two metres of silt and a metre of water above.

:03:09.:03:11.

They are working in small teams because you just cannot be

:03:12.:03:14.

The search is under way to see at the remains of Moira Anderson are

here could last the best part of the week, but the hope is that at the

:04:22.:04:25.

end of it, there will be some answers for Moira Anderson's family

:04:26.:04:29.

and some kind of conclusion to an investigation which has lasted 60

:04:30.:04:30.

years. There are fresh tensions this

:04:31.:04:33.

evening between the UK and Scottish Governments over the announcement

:04:34.:04:36.

of the triggering of Article 50. Ministers at Holyrood criticised

:04:37.:04:38.

the Westminster Government after claiming they "forgot"

to inform Scotland of the date The Prime Minister was

:04:44.:04:48.

I want to ensure we get the best possible deal for the United Kingdom

that works for everyone across the United Kingdom

:04:56.:04:57.

and in all parts of the UK, I have set out my objectives

:04:58.:05:00.

and those include getting a good free trade deal,

:05:01.:05:06.

they include putting issues like our continuing working together

on issues like security We are going to be

but the darts player Jocky Wilson found fame by winning

:08:27.:08:35.

the World Championship title twice. This was at a time when darts on TV

:08:36.:08:38.

regularly drew audiences Well, Jocky's rags-to-riches story

:08:39.:08:41.

is now a stage play. Our arts correspondent

Pauline McLean reports. One dart could give him

:08:47.:08:51.

the World Championship... He may not look like

:08:52.:08:54.

like a sporting hero, but Jocky Wilson put darts,

:08:55.:08:59.

and Scotland, on the map. You're on your own,

:09:00.:09:04.

with the punters at your back, expecting you to play

:09:05.:09:07.

like a champion. This new show revives

:09:08.:09:09.

the story of Jocky Wilson He's your classic underdog,

:09:10.:09:13.

not just in terms of any disadvantage he ever had

:09:14.:09:19.

in his life, and becoming world champion in spite of that,

:09:20.:09:22.

even in the darts world, he was at a slight disadvantage

:09:23.:09:25.

because he was about 5ft tall, and the darts board was further away

:09:26.:09:30.

to him, proportionately. How many pints would you have

:09:31.:09:34.

during a fairly tense game? Jocky was a household name,

:09:35.:09:39.

and people loved him. But just as quickly as he stepped

:09:40.:09:52.

into the limelight, he withdrew from it,

him with my dad, the way he played. They always said, the worse his

:10:11.:10:19.

snatch got, the better he played. So, some of the stories about him,

:10:20.:10:34.

some boy. The new world darts champion...

:10:35.:10:36.

The play focuses on an early episode in Jocky's life when he hitchhiked

:10:37.:10:39.

So, no need to recreate the smoky bar rooms of the past.

:10:40.:10:47.

The fact that the drinks were involved, it does not mean

:10:48.:10:50.

that they weren't really determined and under pressure and practised

:10:51.:10:53.

In this show, at least actor Grant O'Rourke doesn't

Well, it's over now to Kirsteen for the weather.

:11:03.:11:15.

Good evening. Spring appears to be taking a break for a couple of days.

:11:16.:11:25.

Being replaced by distinctive wintry conditions. Today, we have had

:11:26.:11:30.

plenty of showers rattling through on brisk westerly winds. Tonight and

:11:31.:11:35.

tomorrow morning, the showers will turn increasingly wintry with some

:11:36.:11:38.

snow in the forecast and the risk of some icy stretches. A Met Office and

:11:39.:11:43.

yellow warning in force. Especially through western and central areas,

:11:44.:11:48.

some snow even at times to lower levels, accumulating over the high

:11:49.:11:52.

ground, leading to some difficult driving conditions. The occasional

:11:53.:11:56.

rumble of thunder and some hail, and with clearing skies, it will also be

:11:57.:12:01.

the risk of some ice on untreated roads and services. The show is very

:12:02.:12:05.

much continuing as we head into tomorrow morning. If you are heading

:12:06.:12:09.

out around eight o'clock, much of southern Scotland, and eastern

:12:10.:12:13.

Scotland looking dry albeit a cold and frosty start. Plenty of sunshine

:12:14.:12:17.

for these areas during the day. Snow showers continuing through the

:12:18.:12:21.

central belt, the likes of Argyll, much of the Highlands and up towards

:12:22.:12:25.

the North West. But going through the day, snow showers becoming

:12:26.:12:28.

confined to the hills and mountains, with rain showers to lower levels

:12:29.:12:32.

and some spells of sunshine in between. As we go through the day,

:12:33.:12:37.

the best of the sunshine should be towards eastern and southern

:12:38.:12:41.

Scotland, although the showers very much keeping going through western

:12:42.:12:43.

and central areas. Across the rest much keeping going through western

:12:44.:12:48.

of the UK tomorrow afternoon, very much in the same boat, some showers

:12:49.:12:51.

and smells of sunshine. These showers will be fairly frequent and

:12:52.:12:57.

heavy across Western heroes, especially, and a cold and raw feel

:12:58.:13:01.

with temperatures around 429 Celsius. -- four domain sources.

:13:02.:13:10.

Back on home turf tomorrow, the showers easing, frost developing and

:13:11.:13:14.

the risk of ice. By Wednesday, some uncertainty regarding this area of

:13:15.:13:17.

low pressure bringing some rain and some hill snow.

:13:18.:13:19.

Our next update is during Breakfast at 6:25 tomorrow morning.

:13:20.:13:24.

But from everyone on the late team here in Glasgow and around

By the time we find her it'll be too late.
