Jakonson on his novel about Donald Trump. Here on BBC One, it's time
There are fresh allegations tonight in what is already one of Scottish
football's most notorious cases of child sex abuse.
A BBC Scotland investigation has spoken to former players who allege
the founder of Celtic Boys Club, If all and all are a lot of personal
the founder of Celtic Boys Club, Jim Torbett,
sexually abused them during the 1980s and 90s.
That's after he'd been removed for abusing players
in a previous spell at the club, for which he was later jailed.
Torbett denies the allegations against him.
For Kenny Campbell, the feeling of pulling on a Celtic strip for the
first time will remain with him forever.
One day you're at school, the next day you're performing in a venue. I
was like a rabbit in the headlights. Kenny had moved up to Celtic from
the Celtic Boys Club, where his manager and hero was Jim Torbett.
Because he pushed the Chief scouts to get us signed. He pushed and
pushed and pushed. If the manager had asked me, it would be Geron
Teed. It was as if he had a hold on us. I knew what his reasons were.
Within a year of joining the Boys Club, Kenny says he was being
sexually abused by Torbett. It happened time after time after
time. It was just the start. Kenny says his abuse continued for
up to four macro years, even when he had signed for Celtic's senior team.
But could it have been avoided? According to court reports and BBC
sources, Torbett's abuse of children was first brought to the attention
of the Celtic hierarchy in 1974, when he was sacked by then Celtic
manager Jock Stein, honorary president of the boys club. But by
1980, Torbett had been allowed back into the boys club amidst
allegations of a cover-up, explained in more detail into night's
programme. When he was jailed in 1998, Torbett was convicted for
offences only up to 1974. Kenny Campbell is the first person to
speak about abuse during Torbett's second spell at the boys club. He
says he is angry Torbett was allowed to return.
I feel grief about it. If they had never let him in, it never would
have happened in the first place. He should never have been allowed
back in the area. Through his lawyer, Mr Torbett said
he vehemently denies these completely false allegations.
A spokesman for Celtic FC said: The boys club was a separate and
distinct organisation from Celtic football club.
It was vital that justice was served at this time, due to be extremely
serious nature of this issue. The major Scottish FA enquiry is
underway, but the true scale of historical child abuse in bulk or
may never be known. And you can watch that investigation
in full right after this bulletin. It has been described as a "game
changer" in the fight against HIV, and from today, a drug that
dramatically reduces the chance of becoming infected will be
funded by the NHS in Scotland, becoming the first part
of the UK to do so. Our Health Correspondent,
Lisa Summers reports. Gordon was always worried about HAV
after living to the aids epidemic of the 80s. He self funds anti-HIV
drugs, but now he will get them on the NHS.
It will make a huge difference, because from a personal point of
view, being on the strike has given me reassurance. I don't have to
worry about HIV any more. My physical health is better. -- being
on this drug. Therefore, memorable health is better, and I can get on
with everyday life without worrying about a JB. I go to the gym more
often, I take Geron myself, I eat about a JB. I go to the gym more
better, I have a better social life and a better worklife, because I
don't have to worry about PrEP is already given to patients
who have HIV, but now the NHS will fund it as a preventative measure.
It will cost around ?450 per person per month to fund. The Health
Secretary says it will work hand in hand with other measures. What is
important is we prevent infection, and if you think about the cost of
infection to the NHS, that is far greater, and therefore, this is a
preventative measure, alongside, obviously, reiterating safe sex
message that will help to prevent infection, save lives and avoid that
cost further down the line to the NHS.
Protect yourself. HIV and aids are no longer the death sentence they
used to be, but an HIV diagnosis still means a lifetime on
medication. Medics say this preventative use of
PrEP could reduce the number of cases of HIV by up to 86%.
We do lots of other prevention for things like high blood pressure,
statins, cardiac disease. I have already mentioned contraception, a
way of preventing an unwanted outcome. So I think prevention is
the way forward, and yes, the NHS is cash strapped, and I would say that
I hope the price of the medication is that we're going to be using for
PrEP will come down fairly dramatically as we start to
them. For Gordon, it is one pill a day for
a lifetime free from worry about HAV.
Tributes have been paid to the motoring tycoon
Sir Arnold Clark, who has died at the age of 89.
He bought and sold his first car in the 1950s,

of something very big. One reason for its success was that he had
foresight and adaptability. In 1978, we were the only
manufacturer. It was called BL. I stayed with it. I went down with
them, so I decided to move. First showroom was in Glasgow, 1954.
More than six decades later, Sir Arnold had built up an empire across
Scotland and into England and new and used cars, repairs, leasing and
driver training. Just some of the numbers: More than 200,000 cars sold
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
fundraising support for Glasgow Transport Museum and backing for
charity. Arnold Clark cars put their wheels under decades of social
change in Scotland. The distinctive sticker has been on the journey into
car ownership of the more families, with affordable cars opening up

potential for directly financing customers, as long ago as 1963,
quickly followed by car hire. As sales have shifted to leasing,
the company has remained at the forefront of change. He had ten
children. In a statement today, his family said he was billowed and
inspirational, and they will carry on his vision. -- beloveds.
Well, let's get the weather outlook for tonight
Thank you. Good evening to you all. We have some rain at the moment
across the North West, but for many of us, so far tonight, largely dry
with a view clear spells towards the east, and some lovely spells of late
sunshine to end the day. This picture was taken area across Dundee
city from one of our weather watchers. Tonight, mostly cloudy
with rain across the North West, heaviest across the Highlands,
northern parts of Argyll, and also part of the Northern Isles. Through
to the morning, mainly dry across more central, southern and eastern
parts, and wind will tend to use the Shetland. So quite a chilly start
tomorrow, four Celsius at eight o'clock. Further towards the far
north and north-west, it remains cloudy and quite well. The
north-east largely dry, sunny spells the start. Temperatures 8-9, so
fairly mild conditions, and it is largely dry for Central and southern
areas too, though winds will tend strengthen during the day. There may
even be restrictions on the bridges, the fourth ante, for example, by the
afternoon. That rain looks like it will stay mainly towards the north
and north-west. Let's take a wider look at the rest of the UK. Largely
dry across the board. A bit of cloud around, making the sunshine hazy at
times. The best sunshine likely across parts of Wales in the South,
and temperatures could reach 13-16. Across Scotland, it seems the best
of the warmth and sunshine will likely be towards the Lothian 's,
borders and Fife. Towards tomorrow evening, we will have some rain for
the time being, maybe towards the west, and the wind direction becomes
more north-westerly overnight into Wednesday, drawing in colder air,
strengthening the winds, and we could have some strong winds,
especially for the North, on Wednesday, with north-westerly winds
searching Gayle to severe gale force at times. Still win the elsewhere,
the winds light it the south, and the rest of any drier, brighter
weather to the East. But from everyone on the
late team, goodnight.
