A ?200 million deal has been struck to sell the North Sea's

:00:07.:00:10.

The Forties system pumps 450,000 barrels of oil and gas every day.

:00:11.:00:17.

BP has been running it since production started.

:00:18.:00:22.

Its new owners, INEOS, already own the Grangemouth refinery

:00:23.:00:24.

Here's our business and economy editor, Douglas Fraser.

:00:25.:00:34.

The symbolic Royal start to the North Sea oil boom 42 years ago.

:00:35.:00:42.

No longer shipped by tanker the Forties pipeline

:00:43.:00:55.

was the vital link that made it viable.

:00:56.:00:58.

Since then it has carried the lion's share of 43

:00:59.:01:01.

billion barrels of oil from the North Sea.

:01:02.:01:03.

The system covers oil and gas from 40 offshore installations

:01:04.:01:05.

from 40 operators to a single landing point and then it goes

:01:06.:01:08.

through three pumping stations to Grangemouth and a terminal by the

:01:09.:01:11.

BP and all associated with them have been in the forefront

:01:12.:01:14.

of achievement on our continental shelf...

:01:15.:01:16.

When BP started operating it the company was half owned by the

:01:17.:01:19.

It is now selling it to INEOS which already owns Grangemouth

:01:20.:01:22.

INEOS have a lot of skills in running assets efficiently

:01:23.:01:34.

the same skills to the pipeline system, we are trying to extract

:01:35.:01:40.

maximum economic value out of what is, everyone understands,

:01:41.:01:42.

is a declining stock of oil and gas in the North Sea.

:01:43.:01:45.

BP insists it is still committed to the North Sea and

:01:46.:01:50.

investments like this platform West of Shetland

:01:51.:01:52.

It's about what skills are best for which assets,

:01:53.:01:56.

we are exploring and drilling wells, etc, but for INEOS, they have

:01:57.:02:09.

experience and they'll be taking Fourties pipeline

:02:10.:02:10.

to loading arms and tankers and they will be

:02:11.:02:16.

300 staff are to be consulted and no redundancies planned yet as

:02:17.:02:21.

Grangemouth workers found the hard way in 2013 INEOS can be very tough

:02:22.:02:24.

You are effectively handing the keys of the

:02:25.:02:31.

kingdom to one individual, a company driven by one individual.

:02:32.:02:34.

They were speaking about such a key asset, not

:02:35.:02:36.

just to the Scottish economy but to the UK economy.

:02:37.:02:43.

The oil that flows to the refinery and petrochemical

:02:44.:02:52.

plant here is only half of what it was at peak

:02:53.:02:54.

production for the North Sea but and is reckoned that it

:02:55.:02:57.

could still be operating 30 years from now.

:02:58.:02:59.

One small pipeline, a very big asset for the economy.

:03:00.:03:01.

Douglas Fraser, Reporting Scotland, Grangemouth.

:03:02.:03:04.

The First Minister has met the Governor of California

:03:05.:03:06.

at the start of a five-day visit to the United States.

:03:07.:03:09.

Tomorrow Nicola Sturgeon is due to make a speech

:03:10.:03:11.

at Stanford University before travelling to New York where

:03:12.:03:14.

Our correspondent James Cook reports from Sacramento.

:03:15.:03:26.

The First Minister says the focus on her five-day visit to California and

:03:27.:03:33.

New York is on trade and investment, particularly stressing links between

:03:34.:03:37.

Scottish and American companies. Here in Sacramento at the state

:03:38.:03:41.

Capitol building, she met the governor of California Jerry Brown,

:03:42.:03:46.

he's a democratic, busily opposed to President John's climate change

:03:47.:03:50.

scepticism and in that regard, he shares that position with Nicola

:03:51.:03:54.

Sturgeon. -- President Trump. She Tommy afterwards it was a great

:03:55.:04:00.

meeting. I have met once before and there is a great deal of common

:04:01.:04:03.

interest between California and Scotland when it comes to tackling

:04:04.:04:06.

climate change. We share the same ambitions and we were talking today

:04:07.:04:10.

about areas where we might collaborative in the future,

:04:11.:04:13.

particularly around offshore wind. The First Minister is now travelling

:04:14.:04:20.

to California's Silicon Valley four discussions with business leaders

:04:21.:04:24.

that and also to make a speech tomorrow at Stanford University

:04:25.:04:27.

where she is expected to discuss Brexit and also to talk about the

:04:28.:04:31.

middle east and, of course, the issue of Scottish independence. Back

:04:32.:04:35.

home, that is not going down very well. The Scottish Conservatives say

:04:36.:04:38.

she should get back to the day job. James Cook reporting.

:04:39.:04:41.

Almost 40% of Scots are physically inactive.

:04:42.:04:43.

A study by the British Heart Foundation warns that 1.6 million

:04:44.:04:46.

of us have an increased risk of heart disease and early death.

:04:47.:04:49.

Woking up an appetite, these fitness fanatics in Glasgow

:04:50.:04:58.

regularly squeeze in an exercise class in their lunch hour.

:04:59.:05:06.

day, gives you a better outlook, something to do when I go back to

:05:07.:05:11.

work I am energised, refreshed, focused.

:05:12.:05:14.

You just end up putting on weight when you work in

:05:15.:05:16.

It makes me feel good, means I can get away

:05:17.:05:20.

hour, come to the gym, meet people, and it keeps me fit.

:05:21.:05:27.

It seems so simple but the British Heart

:05:28.:05:29.

Foundation say not enough of us are doing it.

:05:30.:05:34.

The charity estimates 1.6 million people in Scotland are physically

:05:35.:05:36.

They say the average man spends around 84 days

:05:37.:05:45.

And overall women are 24% more likely to be classified as

:05:46.:05:51.

What we should be doing according to medical

:05:52.:05:56.

guidelines is 150 minutes a week

:05:57.:06:01.

spread over a few days of something that gets the heart

:06:02.:06:04.

moving, a brisk walk, running or cycling.

:06:05.:06:10.

For some people that is part of their daily

:06:11.:06:17.

Inactivity is something that can really creep up on you.

:06:18.:06:21.

And apparently it is creeping up on around one quarter of us.

:06:22.:06:24.

Of course you will find people sweating

:06:25.:06:25.

in the gym but just a few hundred yards away

:06:26.:06:28.

how active are people on the streets outside?

:06:29.:06:30.

I didn't figure that I was unfit until a doctor

:06:31.:06:32.

actually said, you need to do more exercise than just walking.

:06:33.:06:35.

Not a lot of people do sport, I can't

:06:36.:06:37.

think of one of my friendship group that does it.

:06:38.:06:43.

I see lots of many people walking on the streets, maybe

:06:44.:06:47.

they are going in taxis than they should walk.

:06:48.:06:49.

The British Heart Foundation say it is no laughing

:06:50.:06:51.

matter and doing regular vigorous exercise like this will

:06:52.:06:54.

significantly reduce the risk of coronary heart disease or early

:06:55.:06:56.

:06:57.:06:59.

A legal battle between a grandmother and the Aberdeenshire Golf Resort

:07:00.:07:01.

owned by President Donald Trump is underway at the

:07:02.:07:04.

It's an unlikely case which is being brought by the woman

:07:05.:07:14.

after she was filmed by Menie Golf Resort staff

:07:15.:07:16.

She says filming was a breach of data protection law.

:07:17.:07:20.

Rohan Beyts, left, arrives at court, one woman taking on a large company,

:07:21.:07:33.

she's making a claim against Donald Trump's

:07:34.:07:37.

This is her at home, she told the court she likes to take

:07:38.:07:42.

long walks, on April 11 last year she went for a walk on

:07:43.:07:46.

She passed the golf course, when she was on the beach she

:07:47.:07:57.

realised she needed the toilet urgently.

:07:58.:07:58.

She said she went into the sand dunes where she thought no one

:07:59.:08:01.

could see her and she said she followed mountaineering Scotland

:08:02.:08:04.

guidelines on what to do if you need to go outdoors.

:08:05.:08:06.

Three days later there was a knock at the door and police

:08:07.:08:09.

charged her with relating in a public place in a manner

:08:10.:08:12.

which would have caused or was likely to have

:08:13.:08:14.

She said that she was shocked to think that she was in

:08:15.:08:25.

Police later said that three men, two of whom

:08:26.:08:28.

were employed by the development, had secretly filmed her.

:08:29.:08:30.

She said she knew she hadn't done anything

:08:31.:08:32.

wrong and the Procurator Fiscal took no action.

:08:33.:08:34.

But, upset, she took out a claim instead.

:08:35.:08:38.

I felt that people should not be filmed when they are

:08:39.:08:40.

out in the country doing something that...

:08:41.:08:43.

It is something that many walkers, many climbers, people who

:08:44.:08:48.

It is a fact of life, there are not toilets out

:08:49.:08:54.

At the time Trump International wasn't licensed to

:08:55.:09:00.

hold such data, in view of strict data legislation laws, Rohan Beyts

:09:01.:09:10.

said she made no secret of the fact that he opposed the development

:09:11.:09:14.

from the early stages and was involved in a Facebook page,

:09:15.:09:16.

The lawyer for the organisation said that from her

:09:17.:09:19.

She continues to challenge the claims.

:09:20.:09:24.

The case will be heard again tomorrow.

:09:25.:09:27.

After Celtic's league title win at the weekend,

:09:28.:09:29.

their manager Brendan Rodgers has assured fans he's

:09:30.:09:34.

Here's our senior football reporter Chris McLaughlin.

:09:35.:09:44.

If you are happy and you know it, raise the flag.

:09:45.:09:48.

At the Celtic training ground today it was pretty

:09:49.:09:54.

This was them powering their way past Hearts yesterday.

:09:55.:10:06.

Like so often this season they put on a show to go with the

:10:07.:10:11.

The architect of the club's success was once again the

:10:12.:10:14.

When you shine in Scotland, it is often noticed in England.

:10:15.:10:25.

The man who has been now is not interested for now.

:10:26.:10:28.

18 months after the Liverpool job, I was

:10:29.:10:30.

The other reality is his players are on course

:10:31.:10:38.

for a treble and a possible season unbeaten.

:10:39.:10:42.

I know you do not like to talk about it but there must be

:10:43.:10:46.

something you focus on in that dressing room.

:10:47.:10:52.

It would be very nice to do. Of course.

:10:53.:10:59.

It is the history that people talk about for years and

:11:00.:11:02.

To get the squad to do that, I believe we have the potential.

:11:03.:11:06.

We just need to keep working hard, as I

:11:07.:11:08.

But they know when they do they get the rewards.

:11:09.:11:14.

It's over to Kirsteen now with the weather forecast

:11:15.:11:16.

Good evening. A cloudy wet evening across most of the country. That

:11:17.:11:28.

trend will continue to clear way into the North Sea leaving largely

:11:29.:11:33.

dry conditions behind it, some clear spells, allowing a touch of frost to

:11:34.:11:38.

develop in the sheltered these. Some showers moving in and they will be

:11:39.:11:42.

accompanied by a brisk westerly winds. Tomorrow gets off to a

:11:43.:11:46.

reasonably dry start. If you are heading out around eight o'clock

:11:47.:11:50.

tomorrow morning, expect some brightness, sunshine across much of

:11:51.:11:53.

southern, central and eastern Scotland. The chilly start however

:11:54.:11:57.

particularly so in the eaves. Always that bit more in the way of cloud

:11:58.:12:02.

across the north. Showers affecting the Western Isles. Also strong to

:12:03.:12:08.

gale force winds across the foul north during the day and increasing

:12:09.:12:13.

further towards the evening. During tomorrow, the cloud will tend to

:12:14.:12:17.

spill in from the north west. There will still be some hints of

:12:18.:12:21.

brightness and sunshine at times. The showers will continue to affect

:12:22.:12:26.

the far north. Across the UK as a whole, a fine afternoon to come

:12:27.:12:30.

across Northern Ireland and after a fairly cloudy, damp start across

:12:31.:12:34.

much of Wales and the south-west of England, it is an improving picture

:12:35.:12:40.

tomorrow afternoon. Some and sunshine. Across East Anglia and the

:12:41.:12:44.

south-east of England, remaining fairly cloudy with outbreaks of

:12:45.:12:48.

rain. Temperatures down a notch on today's values and for us in

:12:49.:12:51.

Scotland, somewhat fresher feel than we have been used to of late with

:12:52.:12:55.

these winds. During tomorrow evening, the winds will strengthen

:12:56.:12:59.

further across the Northern Isles reaching severe gale force for a

:13:00.:13:03.

time and only very gradually easing during tomorrow night. As we look

:13:04.:13:06.

ahead to Wednesday, and indeed over the next few days, we have this area

:13:07.:13:11.

of high pressure moving in from the self which will result in largely

:13:12.:13:15.

dry and settled conditions although we always hold onto that bit more in

:13:16.:13:19.

the way of cloud and a breeze in the north. That is the forecast.

:13:20.:13:21.

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

:13:22.:13:25.

From everyone on the late team here in Glasgow
