The Prime Minister and the First Minister have held talks

:00:15.:00:22.

After the meeting, in Glasgow, Nicola Sturgeon said

:00:23.:00:25.

she remained "frustrated" at the lack of any progress

:00:26.:00:27.

towards a distinctive Brexit deal for Scotland.

:00:28.:00:29.

But Theresa May insisted her aim was a good deal for the whole UK,

:00:30.:00:32.

The move to trigger Britain's departure from the EU

:00:33.:00:35.

This from our political editor Brian Taylor.

:00:36.:00:38.

A meeting of ministers, but not necessarily of minds.

:00:39.:00:56.

Talks followed a day devoted to Scotland's future.

:00:57.:00:58.

The Prime Minister also announced plans for

:00:59.:00:59.

As Brexit moves closer, no talk of a referendum.

:01:00.:01:23.

Now is the point when we triggering Article 50, starting

:01:24.:01:25.

formal negotiations for leaving the European Union

:01:26.:01:27.

when we should be pulling together, not hanging apart.

:01:28.:01:30.

Pulling together to get the best possible deal for the whole

:01:31.:01:33.

of the UK including the people in Scotland and, also,

:01:34.:01:35.

it would be unfair for the people in Scotland to ask them

:01:36.:01:38.

to make a significant decision before all the facts

:01:39.:01:40.

Can you envisage a referendum happening in the not-too

:01:41.:01:44.

about a second independence referendum.

:01:45.:01:49.

The Department for International Development in East Kilbride.

:01:50.:01:52.

Theresa May argued their efforts to tackle global poverty proved

:01:53.:01:55.

British strength and continuing dedication to moving forward.

:01:56.:02:00.

The strength and stability of our union will become

:02:01.:02:04.

Nicola Sturgeon characterised the talks as cordial,

:02:05.:02:12.

but without any concessions on offer.

:02:13.:02:16.

I continue to be frustrated by a process that appears not to be

:02:17.:02:20.

listening, not just to Scotland, but any of the devolved

:02:21.:02:22.

administrations and I made that point to her.

:02:23.:02:24.

I reminded her again that we had membership of the single

:02:25.:02:37.

market ruled out without any discussion.

:02:38.:02:39.

I had hoped that we would hear a different approach, in terms

:02:40.:02:42.

Whether that is the path they want to take, whether they want to be

:02:43.:02:51.

part of an independent country, the people

:02:52.:02:53.

of Scotland must make an informed decision.

:02:54.:03:03.

The scene moves back to Holyrood tomorrow, when MSPs

:03:04.:03:05.

will decide whether to back an independence referendum.

:03:06.:03:09.

The Scottish government has been accused of betraying women who have

:03:10.:03:12.

suffered debilitating side effects after being given mesh implants.

:03:13.:03:14.

The procedure is often used to treat incontinence, but an independent

:03:15.:03:16.

review was commissioned into its safety, after

:03:17.:03:18.

Ministers today published their final report and were immediately

:03:19.:03:27.

accused of diluting its findings. Lucy Adams has the background.

:03:28.:03:31.

Almost three years ago, these women came to Parliament

:03:32.:03:33.

to call for a review of the procedure that had left

:03:34.:03:36.

I have asked the acting Chief Medical Officer this week to

:03:37.:03:42.

write to all health wards, to request them

:03:43.:03:44.

to immediately suspend these procedures, both procedures.

:03:45.:03:56.

The former Health Secretary called for an investigation into

:03:57.:03:57.

Earlier this month, the two patient representatives

:03:58.:04:01.

on the group resigned, claiming the final report

:04:02.:04:02.

The ball is in their court to save this review.

:04:03.:04:16.

Today, as the final report was published, the tenacity

:04:17.:04:19.

The report was independent of government, the detail of how it is

:04:20.:04:26.

laid out, I cannot answer for you, but what

:04:27.:04:30.

I will say is, due to the tireless campaigning

:04:31.:04:34.

of the women who had been injured, we have a review that gives us

:04:35.:04:37.

all of the evidence as to the safety of the use of mesh for incontinence

:04:38.:04:40.

The former Health Secretary, who called for the review,

:04:41.:04:54.

originally, said the whole process should be investigated.

:04:55.:04:56.

As long as there are outstanding allegations

:04:57.:04:58.

about tampering of evidence and report, the report has no

:04:59.:05:01.

credibility, until these allegations are proven true or untrue.

:05:02.:05:03.

All strands of the investigation into whether

:05:04.:05:05.

this report was tampered with, whether the evidence was tampered

:05:06.:05:07.

with and, if that is the case, heads should roll.

:05:08.:05:14.

And after her report, Lucy Adams spoke further about

:05:15.:05:16.

the response to the allegations, as well as their implications.

:05:17.:05:27.

The allegations are that the report was diluted.

:05:28.:05:28.

The allegations from the three members of the expert group

:05:29.:05:31.

who say an entire chapter was removed.

:05:32.:05:34.

Today's main report does not contain that chapter,

:05:35.:05:39.

For the campaigners for those women who say they have been

:05:40.:05:41.

disabled by this surgery, they say this report

:05:42.:05:43.

For the hundreds of women who say they have been disabled, this does

:05:44.:05:50.

This was meant to be the final word on mesh implants for the Scottish

:05:51.:05:56.

government and for the women who have undergone this procedure.

:05:57.:05:58.

But with these sorts of allegations hanging over it,

:05:59.:06:00.

The oil exploration firm Hurricane has made what has being described

:06:01.:06:07.

as the "largest undeveloped discovery" of oil in UK waters.

:06:08.:06:09.

It says one billion barrels of oil is contained within an area 60

:06:10.:06:12.

The company hopes to begin production in 2019.

:06:13.:06:20.

Tributes have been paid to a young boxer who died in Thailand whilst

:06:21.:06:24.

20-year-old Jordan Coe from Falkirk died of suspected heatstroke

:06:25.:06:27.

during a training run. It is thought he was dehydrated

:06:28.:06:29.

after trying to sweat off weight before a bout.

:06:30.:06:35.

Friends said he was internationally renowned.

:06:36.:06:42.

I am still in shock. I was talking to him just on Wednesday. I cannot

:06:43.:06:52.

process that he has passed away. He was weighing in on Sunday morning.

:06:53.:07:01.

Even tote for a run on it before. He had the sweat suit on. Every boxer

:07:02.:07:08.

does it. He has been around the world. He recently fought in Japan

:07:09.:07:15.

and became ranked within the world's top ten. He was only 20.

:07:16.:07:22.

Final-year medical students at Glasgow University will have

:07:23.:07:24.

to resit an exam after evidence of "collusion" was uncovered.

:07:25.:07:26.

About 270 undergraduate students at the university's medical

:07:27.:07:28.

It emerged that a handful of students had shared information

:07:29.:07:32.

The students responsible are now facing a disciplinary and fitness

:07:33.:07:36.

The fresh exam has been timetabled for early May.

:07:37.:07:57.

Developers have started moving into the first new tone for 50 years. It

:07:58.:08:06.

will eventually become home to 15,000 people.

:08:07.:08:13.

A multi-million pound centre for medical research is to open

:08:14.:08:15.

Among other renovations, it will allow the human

:08:16.:08:18.

body to be scanned in greater detail than ever before.

:08:19.:08:21.

The Imaging Centre for Excellence is a collaboration of science,

:08:22.:08:23.

Glasgow University's Imaging Centre for Excellence is based

:08:24.:08:26.

at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital.

:08:27.:08:27.

It is a collaboration of science, business and the NHS.

:08:28.:08:30.

Here's our Health Correspondent, Lisa Summers

:08:31.:08:31.

This pineapple is what we're using to test the scanner.

:08:32.:08:34.

It's like our brains, mainly made out of water.

:08:35.:08:36.

It isn't the most sophisticated research tool, but the perfect way

:08:37.:08:39.

The imaging is so detailed, it unravels the layers of the

:08:40.:08:43.

pineapple and it will do the same with our brain.

:08:44.:08:46.

What brain processes give you is a prediction of

:08:47.:08:48.

If you're on an escalator you're not moving, you

:08:49.:08:51.

feel it in your body because you have the internal expectation it

:08:52.:08:54.

Scientists say a better understanding of the way our

:08:55.:08:57.

brain works can help medics work out what can cause it to go wrong.

:08:58.:09:03.

The EU-funded project is led from the Imaging Centre for Excellence.

:09:04.:09:05.

It is part of the campus at Scotland's largest

:09:06.:09:08.

hospital, which officially opens this week, a collaboration of

:09:09.:09:11.

business, NHS and Glasgow University.

:09:12.:09:16.

The concept behind this is that scientists want

:09:17.:09:20.

to tailor-make treatments to an individual's characteristics.

:09:21.:09:31.

There isn't one breast-cancer or one ovarian cancer.

:09:32.:09:34.

There are several subtypes and if we get it right, we get

:09:35.:09:37.

the right drug to the right patient at the right

:09:38.:09:39.

time and without causing any adverse reactions.

:09:40.:09:48.

The centre will create around 400 jobs and generate ?88 million,

:09:49.:09:51.

but there are concerns about the impact of Brexit.

:09:52.:09:54.

The government says it will work to ensure the UK remains a world

:09:55.:09:57.

leader in research but it is a worry for those

:09:58.:10:00.

My entire lab is financed by EU money.

:10:01.:10:10.

The money is very important to finance post-doctoral's and Ph.D.

:10:11.:10:20.

Students, but on top of that, it allows us to work with the top

:10:21.:10:24.

With the deal still to be brokered, the focuses on bringing in more

:10:25.:10:28.

focused research to be a world leader in medicine.

:10:29.:10:32.

A project to boost the number of golden eagles in Dumfries and

:10:33.:10:35.

has secured a ?1.3 million funding award.

:10:36.:10:38.

At the moment, there are fewer than four pairs of the bird

:10:39.:10:41.

The Heritage Lottery cash will be used to bring young

:10:42.:10:44.

The Scottish tourism industry "outperformed"

:10:45.:10:50.

The Association of Leading Visitor Attractions said it saw an increase

:10:51.:10:54.

of just over 7% across all its UK sites last year,

:10:55.:10:57.

but in Scotland, the rise was over 15%.

:10:58.:10:59.

The National Museum of Scotland topped the list,

:11:00.:11:01.

with 1.8 million visitors. Edinburgh Castle was second.

:11:02.:11:11.

Now, it is over to Anne Lundon, with the weather outlook

:11:12.:11:14.

good evening. Sunshine was not in short supply over the weekend. Today

:11:15.:11:32.

was no different. We had the top temperature in the Hall of the

:11:33.:11:37.

United Kingdom in Scotland. 19 Celsius in Aviemore. In sharp

:11:38.:11:47.

contrast, the Shetlands struggling at just eat Celsius. Overnight

:11:48.:11:54.

maintaining, a trainee. More in the wee of cloud and we have been used

:11:55.:12:01.

to in recent days. Temperatures dipping down to freezing in the

:12:02.:12:08.

Northwest. Tomorrow morning, a eight o'clock, quite a contrast to what we

:12:09.:12:12.

have been used to in the recent days. Perhaps some elderly greatness

:12:13.:12:22.

in coastal areas in the West. Some light rain or drizzle through parts

:12:23.:12:28.

of Orkney and Shetland. A lot of dry weather to come for most of us. East

:12:29.:12:38.

of Scotland may have the odd shower. For the rest of the UK, some showery

:12:39.:12:44.

outbreaks of rain. That will push north and reach the South of

:12:45.:12:50.

Scotland later in the afternoon. The best of any brightness in the

:12:51.:12:57.

south-east. A top temperature down South of 18 Celsius. Temperature is

:12:58.:13:01.

returning to what would we expect at this time of year, 12-15 C. Rain

:13:02.:13:08.

pushing north during the course of the evening. High-pressure moving

:13:09.:13:17.

away. Low pressure dominating. Quite a cloudy and wet picture for more

:13:18.:13:21.

spices on Wednesday. Most of the scenes some rain at some point.

:13:22.:13:23.

Our next update is during Breakfast at 6.25am tomorrow morning.

:13:24.:13:28.

But from everyone here on the late team in Glasgow, good night.
