Flynn to a court appearance shortly before she disappeared. At the time,

:00:38.:00:41.

searches were made of the Water of Leith near her home and parts of

:00:42.:00:46.

East Lothian, but there was no sign of her. Her family made an emotional

plea for information. Hannah is missing you. We miss and love you.

:00:53.:01:00.

Louise, please let us know where you are and that you are safe. In 2005,

:01:08.:01:12.

in Perth, the charge against him was found not proven. Louise's family

was left distraught. She is dead and there is no doubt about that. Her

:01:18.:01:20.

name has been dragged through the mud by her son and by his father.

After more than a decade, Sunday brought a major development in the

:01:27.:01:30.

case. Human remains were found by a cyclist on the road in the entrance

:01:31.:01:34.

to Gosford house in Longniddry. Police had suspected they were the

:01:35.:01:38.

remains of Louise Tiffney. Today came the confirmation. We can now

:01:39.:01:43.

confirm the remains found out that of Louise Tiffney. It was a long and

Reporting Scotland, Edinburgh. A drunk driver who killed a woman

:02:08.:02:09.

on the Isle of Mull while driving a high-performance car has been

:02:10.:02:12.

jailed for 12 years. Thomas Wainwright was on the wrong

:02:13.:02:15.

side of the road and travelling Theresa Wade was 29 years old when

:02:16.:02:30.

she died. She had been a vet on the Isle of Mull. The job she had always

:02:31.:02:37.

wanted. On the 20th of October 2015, she was driving home in her van. She

:02:38.:02:42.

never arrived. Our partner of ten years, who also worked with her in

:02:43.:02:45.

the surgery, answered the door to police. When the police arrived,

:02:46.:02:54.

they informed me, they gave me the preludes to that news and asked me

:02:55.:02:59.

to sit down, at half past four in the morning, I knew something

:03:00.:03:04.

that'll had happened. And when they told me, I felt like I had been hit

:03:05.:03:12.

by a sledgehammer. Thomas Wainwright was drunk, he had been driving speed

:03:13.:03:16.

of up to 95 mph on the wrong side of the road. He had been drinking beer

:03:17.:03:21.

and cider for eight and a half hours since the morning. When he left this

:03:22.:03:26.

pub, a concerned member of the public asked him who was driving.

:03:27.:03:31.

Wainwright says the car knew its own way home and said he had a clear

:03:32.:03:36.

head. During the trial, he tried to blame Theresa Wade for the crash.

:03:37.:03:40.

Sentencing, the judge said he found some difficulty in finding any

:03:41.:03:45.

mitigating factors in this case. He said Thomas Wainwright had shown no

:03:46.:03:49.

remorse for his actions and the arrogance he had shown while giving

:03:50.:03:53.

evidence was quite staggering. He sentenced him to 12 years in prison

:03:54.:03:57.

and banned him from driving for 15 years. Outside court, Theresa Wade's

:03:58.:04:03.

partner paid tribute to her. Theresa was my best friend. She was the

:04:04.:04:08.

kindest, kindest of soul mates. She was the most compassionate people.

:04:09.:04:13.

She was a caring veterinary surgeon, she was professional and although

:04:14.:04:18.

she did, she was a dedicated person. Thomas Wainwright lived in the South

of France but had been on Mull to visit his sick grandmother when the

and destabilising way The First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon,

met the former US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton,

in New York last night. They chatted backstage at the Women

:05:13.:05:15.

in the World conference, where they each gave

:05:16.:05:17.

separate live interviews. From New York, here's our political

:05:18.:05:20.

correspondent, Glenn Campbell. They welcomed her like a celebrity,

:05:21.:05:35.

and the interviewer invited her to comment on the US election.

:05:36.:05:39.

President Trump is the President of the United States and I respect

:05:40.:05:43.

that. She took care not to renew her criticism. I am here as a guest of

:05:44.:05:50.

the United States just now. But I want to be allowed back in in

:05:51.:05:57.

future! But she praised Germany's Angela Merkel for standing up to the

:05:58.:06:01.

President and heaped praise on his defeated rival, who she met

backstage. I look at Hillary, and she has been a trailblazer for women

in politics, whatever you think she has been a trailblazer for women

about her politics, but she had made it easier for women like me in

:06:15.:06:18.

politics and opening for that, I and women across the world really owe

:06:19.:06:24.

Hillary Clinton a debt of gratitude. The First Minister was asked to

:06:25.:06:28.

explain why Holyrood has three female leaders. Something in the

:06:29.:06:35.

water! Or something in the whisky, perhaps. And to describe a

relationship with Theresa May. -- her relationship. We both like

:06:41.:06:42.

relationship with Theresa May. -- shoes, which is a good starting

:06:43.:06:46.

point! She criticised the treatment of female politicians in the media

:06:47.:06:51.

after this front page. So, this tendency to reduce women to body

:06:52.:06:58.

parts or what they wear or what their hair looks like, it is not

:06:59.:07:02.

innocent and it is not something we should laugh off, it is a deliberate

:07:03.:07:09.

attempt to demean women. Overall, her contribution was well received.

:07:10.:07:13.

She was actually my favourite person speaking today. My God, perfect! She

:07:14.:07:20.

was really good, I loved watching her to say, you know. We need more

:07:21.:07:28.

women like her. Yeah, I loved her. Overseas endorsement for a

Let's get the weather now with Kawser.

:08:05.:08:12.

Good evening. It has not been a bad night supper. Mostly dry with clear

not just us enjoying the sunshine, not much in the way of cloud in the
