Jakonson on his novel about Donald Trump. Here on BBC One, it's time

:00:00.:00:00.

There are fresh allegations tonight in what is already one of Scottish

:00:00.:00:13.

football's most notorious cases of child sex abuse.

:00:14.:00:15.

A BBC Scotland investigation has spoken to former players who allege

:00:16.:00:19.

the founder of Celtic Boys Club, If all and all are a lot of personal

:00:20.:00:29.

the founder of Celtic Boys Club, Jim Torbett,

:00:30.:00:31.

sexually abused them during the 1980s and 90s.

:00:32.:00:33.

That's after he'd been removed for abusing players

:00:34.:00:36.

in a previous spell at the club, for which he was later jailed.

:00:37.:00:40.

Torbett denies the allegations against him.

:00:41.:00:40.

For Kenny Campbell, the feeling of pulling on a Celtic strip for the

:00:41.:00:49.

first time will remain with him forever.

:00:50.:00:59.

One day you're at school, the next day you're performing in a venue. I

:01:00.:01:05.

was like a rabbit in the headlights. Kenny had moved up to Celtic from

:01:06.:01:09.

the Celtic Boys Club, where his manager and hero was Jim Torbett.

:01:10.:01:16.

Because he pushed the Chief scouts to get us signed. He pushed and

:01:17.:01:24.

pushed and pushed. If the manager had asked me, it would be Geron

:01:25.:01:29.

Teed. It was as if he had a hold on us. I knew what his reasons were.

:01:30.:01:36.

Within a year of joining the Boys Club, Kenny says he was being

:01:37.:01:42.

sexually abused by Torbett. It happened time after time after

:01:43.:01:47.

time. It was just the start. Kenny says his abuse continued for

:01:48.:01:52.

up to four macro years, even when he had signed for Celtic's senior team.

:01:53.:01:58.

But could it have been avoided? According to court reports and BBC

:01:59.:02:02.

sources, Torbett's abuse of children was first brought to the attention

:02:03.:02:06.

of the Celtic hierarchy in 1974, when he was sacked by then Celtic

:02:07.:02:12.

manager Jock Stein, honorary president of the boys club. But by

:02:13.:02:15.

1980, Torbett had been allowed back into the boys club amidst

:02:16.:02:19.

allegations of a cover-up, explained in more detail into night's

:02:20.:02:24.

programme. When he was jailed in 1998, Torbett was convicted for

:02:25.:02:30.

offences only up to 1974. Kenny Campbell is the first person to

:02:31.:02:34.

speak about abuse during Torbett's second spell at the boys club. He

:02:35.:02:37.

says he is angry Torbett was allowed to return.

:02:38.:02:42.

I feel grief about it. If they had never let him in, it never would

:02:43.:02:47.

have happened in the first place. He should never have been allowed

:02:48.:02:48.

back in the area. Through his lawyer, Mr Torbett said

:02:49.:02:57.

he vehemently denies these completely false allegations.

:02:58.:03:08.

A spokesman for Celtic FC said: The boys club was a separate and

:03:09.:03:11.

distinct organisation from Celtic football club.

:03:12.:03:13.

It was vital that justice was served at this time, due to be extremely

:03:14.:03:17.

serious nature of this issue. The major Scottish FA enquiry is

:03:18.:03:22.

underway, but the true scale of historical child abuse in bulk or

:03:23.:03:23.

may never be known. And you can watch that investigation

:03:24.:03:24.

in full right after this bulletin. It has been described as a "game

:03:25.:03:27.

changer" in the fight against HIV, and from today, a drug that

:03:28.:03:31.

dramatically reduces the chance of becoming infected will be

:03:32.:03:35.

funded by the NHS in Scotland, becoming the first part

:03:36.:03:37.

of the UK to do so. Our Health Correspondent,

:03:38.:03:40.

Lisa Summers reports. Gordon was always worried about HAV

:03:41.:03:55.

after living to the aids epidemic of the 80s. He self funds anti-HIV

:03:56.:03:59.

drugs, but now he will get them on the NHS.

:04:00.:04:02.

It will make a huge difference, because from a personal point of

:04:03.:04:05.

view, being on the strike has given me reassurance. I don't have to

:04:06.:04:10.

worry about HIV any more. My physical health is better. -- being

:04:11.:04:14.

on this drug. Therefore, memorable health is better, and I can get on

:04:15.:04:16.

with everyday life without worrying about a JB. I go to the gym more

:04:17.:04:19.

often, I take Geron myself, I eat about a JB. I go to the gym more

:04:20.:04:24.

better, I have a better social life and a better worklife, because I

:04:25.:04:26.

don't have to worry about PrEP is already given to patients

:04:27.:04:39.

who have HIV, but now the NHS will fund it as a preventative measure.

:04:40.:04:46.

It will cost around ?450 per person per month to fund. The Health

:04:47.:04:49.

Secretary says it will work hand in hand with other measures. What is

:04:50.:04:53.

important is we prevent infection, and if you think about the cost of

:04:54.:04:59.

infection to the NHS, that is far greater, and therefore, this is a

:05:00.:05:03.

preventative measure, alongside, obviously, reiterating safe sex

:05:04.:05:07.

message that will help to prevent infection, save lives and avoid that

:05:08.:05:11.

cost further down the line to the NHS.

:05:12.:05:16.

Protect yourself. HIV and aids are no longer the death sentence they

:05:17.:05:20.

used to be, but an HIV diagnosis still means a lifetime on

:05:21.:05:22.

medication. Medics say this preventative use of

:05:23.:05:26.

PrEP could reduce the number of cases of HIV by up to 86%.

:05:27.:05:31.

We do lots of other prevention for things like high blood pressure,

:05:32.:05:35.

statins, cardiac disease. I have already mentioned contraception, a

:05:36.:05:38.

way of preventing an unwanted outcome. So I think prevention is

:05:39.:05:43.

the way forward, and yes, the NHS is cash strapped, and I would say that

:05:44.:05:47.

I hope the price of the medication is that we're going to be using for

:05:48.:05:50.

PrEP will come down fairly dramatically as we start to

:05:51.:05:52.

them. For Gordon, it is one pill a day for

:05:53.:05:58.

a lifetime free from worry about HAV.

:05:59.:05:59.

Tributes have been paid to the motoring tycoon

:06:00.:06:01.

Sir Arnold Clark, who has died at the age of 89.

:06:02.:06:04.

He bought and sold his first car in the 1950s,

:06:05.:06:06.

and his business went on to become the largest independent

:06:07.:06:08.

Here's our business editor, Douglas Fraser.

:06:18.:06:21.

of something very big. One reason for its success was that he had

:06:22.:06:30.

foresight and adaptability. In 1978, we were the only

:06:31.:06:34.

manufacturer. It was called BL. I stayed with it. I went down with

:06:35.:06:40.

them, so I decided to move. First showroom was in Glasgow, 1954.

:06:41.:06:46.

More than six decades later, Sir Arnold had built up an empire across

:06:47.:06:49.

Scotland and into England and new and used cars, repairs, leasing and

:06:50.:06:55.

driver training. Just some of the numbers: More than 200,000 cars sold

:06:56.:07:01.

every year, turnover of more than ?3 billion. 200 dealerships, which have

helped a a family fortune of more than ?1 billion. That has helped

:07:29.:07:32.

What sort of price range really in? Sir Arnold was quick to see the

:07:33.:07:37.

potential for directly financing customers, as long ago as 1963,

:07:38.:07:41.

quickly followed by car hire. As sales have shifted to leasing,

:07:53.:07:54.

Well, let's get the weather outlook for tonight

:07:55.:07:56.

Thank you. Good evening to you all. We have some rain at the moment

:07:57.:08:03.

across the North West, but for many of us, so far tonight, largely dry

:08:04.:08:08.

with a view clear spells towards the east, and some lovely spells of late

:08:09.:08:12.

sunshine to end the day. This picture was taken area across Dundee

:08:13.:08:16.

city from one of our weather watchers. Tonight, mostly cloudy

:08:17.:08:20.

with rain across the North West, heaviest across the Highlands,

:08:21.:08:23.

northern parts of Argyll, and also part of the Northern Isles. Through

:08:24.:08:29.

to the morning, mainly dry across more central, southern and eastern

:08:30.:08:33.

parts, and wind will tend to use the Shetland. So quite a chilly start

:08:34.:08:38.

tomorrow, four Celsius at eight o'clock. Further towards the far

:08:39.:08:41.

north and north-west, it remains cloudy and quite well. The

:08:42.:08:45.

north-east largely dry, sunny spells the start. Temperatures 8-9, so

:08:46.:08:50.

fairly mild conditions, and it is largely dry for Central and southern

:08:51.:08:53.

areas too, though winds will tend strengthen during the day. There may

:08:54.:08:58.

even be restrictions on the bridges, the fourth ante, for example, by the

:08:59.:09:04.

afternoon. That rain looks like it will stay mainly towards the north

:09:05.:09:07.

and north-west. Let's take a wider look at the rest of the UK. Largely

:09:08.:09:12.

dry across the board. A bit of cloud around, making the sunshine hazy at

:09:13.:09:15.

times. The best sunshine likely across parts of Wales in the South,

:09:16.:09:21.

and temperatures could reach 13-16. Across Scotland, it seems the best

:09:22.:09:24.

of the warmth and sunshine will likely be towards the Lothian 's,

:09:25.:09:30.

borders and Fife. Towards tomorrow evening, we will have some rain for

:09:31.:09:33.

the time being, maybe towards the west, and the wind direction becomes

:09:34.:09:38.

more north-westerly overnight into Wednesday, drawing in colder air,

:09:39.:09:41.

strengthening the winds, and we could have some strong winds,

:09:42.:09:45.

especially for the North, on Wednesday, with north-westerly winds

:09:46.:09:48.

searching Gayle to severe gale force at times. Still win the elsewhere,

:09:49.:09:52.

the winds light it the south, and the rest of any drier, brighter

:09:53.:09:54.

weather to the East. But from everyone on the

:09:55.:09:56.

late team, goodnight.
