40 police officers are involved. They are investigating the discovery
of human bones near Gosford house. Police say recovering and recording
that remains is painstaking work. They've contacted the family of
Louise Tiffney, a 43-year-old Edinburgh woman who went missing
shortly after this footage of her with her son when he appeared on
court in another matter. He stood trial for her murder. The case was
not proven, it is thought he left the country. At the time, searches
were made of the water of Leith near her home. Officers have spent a
further day exploring the area around Gosford house. They stress
the investigation is at the early stages and it could be many more
days before the identity is known. As that investigation
was continuing, across the country a fingertip search of a remote area
of woodland was underway - in what's being described
as a "crucial stage" of another 27-year-old Emma Caldwell
was last seen alive A month later her body was found
in woodland in south Lanarkshire. Our Home Affairs Correspondent
Reevel Alderson reports on the developments
in this long-running case. This is one of the last positive
sightings of our Coldwell. She was working as a prostitute to fund a
heroin habit. Despite a number of arrests nobody has been charged with
her murder. Today, her parents were with police as a new search was
announced. Her mother praised their persistence. They addressed the
killer directly. Living with the guilt of taking her life must be
dreadful but if you have no conscience then be aware my family
and I will never give up fighting for justice on error's behalf. We
can do no less because we love and miss her every day, not just today.
The new search is concentrated in the woods where the body was found
but this is only part of a reinvigorated investigation. There
are 13,000 people on the police database connected with this case.
Officers have seized 9000 items and viewed 4000 hours of CCTV footage.
Police are keen to speak to any woman who may have been involved in
prostitution and may have been brought to these words to come
forward. They are keen to trace a black BMW which Emma might have got
into. It is believed to originate from Dumfries. The motorway is only
a couple of miles from this location. This search will see
police divers in a pond nearby. We have returned to this area on the
back of information we received through witnesses and through
consultation with national search advisers. We will undertake those
searches. This phase of the investigation will
last a week with detectives idyll to use new techniques including
enhanced DNA techniques. It's often claimed that Scotland has
a reputation for welcoming An organisation which helps asylum
seeks in Glasgow says it's come across examples
of destitution, harassment Olivia fled to Scotland from Zambia
in 2005 on humanitarian grounds. She has since suffered health problems
and lost count of the number of times she's had to move. In January,
after a threat of legal action, she was offered a flat in Ibrox where
she lives with her ten-month-old son. I've been staying somewhere,
they told me the contract was... Existing on ?25 a week has been a
shock. When I write down the list of what I need I need to ignore myself.
We've been offered accommodation, thankfully. Last week she gave
evidence to the Holyrood committee. The Red Cross told the committee it
had seen a significant rise in the number of destitute asylum seekers.
Please Scotland talks of a high risk these vulnerable people face of
being targeted by criminal gangs. In three separate sessions, the
committee has been presented with claims of how asylum seekers have
been illegally evicted from properties, given no notice to quit
or finding locks changed. We hear regularly of situations
where asylum seekers have been bullied, intimidated, derogatory
comments have been made by the very people meant to support them. A
researcher says there needs to be a consistent approach from local
authorities I would like to see a consistent approach for people and
levels of financial support increased and accommodation secured
in a timely fashion. To date, Glasgow is the only local authority
to take on asylum seekers under the dispersal programme but other
councils are showing interest. The equalities and human rights
committee will publish its findings later this month.
Final submissions have been heard in the case of a grandmother pursuing
Trump International. She says her privacy was breached after she was
told she was filmed during eating near the Trump golf course in
Aberdeenshire. This time next year we will be
watching the opening ceremony of the 2018 Commonwealth Games. Teams

Temperatures may be less specific but there is nothing tepid about the
skills of the team. We are trying to show people that it is a sport you
can play in Scotland. The popularity of the sport is growing so we want
to attract more people to the sport. The most successful was Glasgow 2014
with a record 53 medals won. Teams Scotland's most successful overseas
games was in 2006. What is the expectation one year from now? We
are looking at our best overseas performance for the team. We will be
looking for a top six performance. We know that they will be able to
deliver that. More than 29 medals and we will have our best overseas
performance. Some of those performers got together to try their
performance. Some of those hand in beach volleyball, a chance
to meet other athletes. Most of them are Ball sports peoples of the
better at volleyball. It is nice meeting them. I've met them before
but they are all really nice and I'm really excited to be in a team with
them. I suppose the terrible question I have to ask you is about
bikinis. Do you wear them? Not in Scotland. When you compete you need
to wear it if it is the temperature. If it is above 16 degrees. So there
you go. Just one year to go. In football, and two games
in the Scottish Premiership tonight Aberdeen beat Inverness
Caledonian Thistle 1-0 Neil Lennon and Jim Duffy have both
been issued a notice of complaint by the FA's compliance officer
following their touchline fight. Tempers flared in the Championship
clash. Both clubs have been charged with alleged misconduct of their
players and staff. Let's get the weather now. For many of us it has
been a cloudy evening but fine end to the day. Whilst it is fairly
cloudy elsewhere we've had some blustery showers. Heavy ones across
parts of Shetland with the odd rumble of thunder. Here we will have
the strongest winds. It was wide into Shetland. By morning, there
will be breezy conditions and the showers will be towards the West. If
you're heading out, it is drier for Orkney. Elsewhere, towards the
Highlands and Islands, some shoppers here. Well scattered towards the
east. During the rest of the day we will see the shower is coming in
across the Northwest. Some sunshine here and fairly dry conditions
elsewhere. Let's take a wide look at the rest of the UK. High pressure is
controlling our weather. It is largely dry. A few showers across
Northern Ireland as well. Temperatures for all of us reaching
around 11 to 13 Celsius. High pressure for the rest of us as well.
That is introducing more in the way of cloud for Northern Ireland. We
will see isobars towards the North as well. Breezy conditions will
continue. We will look ahead to the rest of the week. Here is the
picture. The best of the showers developing along the east Coast.
That is Reporting Scotland. Good night.
