Guthrie Castle's website has a message asking anyone who's booked
a wedding or event to get in touch with them.
Guthrie Castle sits here in the Angus countryside,
It is a very popular venue for weddings.
But the castle's website has been taken down and replaced by a message
asking anyone who has booked a wedding here or other events
The allegations circulating on social media are that a former
member of staff double-booked weddings and pocketed the deposits.
I spoke to one man who is due to have his wedding in October.
He phoned the castle and they said they could not check his booking

The castle have not made any comment but Police Scotland have confirmed

Staff record and film updates of the babies
Nurses hope it will also mean their phones will ring less often.
We would hope in the future that we could use this
for all the babies, so it would mean when the parents wake up
in the morning they will see a video of their baby,
they will not see the need to phone in, they will just get up and get
When you were at home, what was it like to click

We got e-mails to go online and look at videos that the nurses had

The new V Design Museum is taking shape on Dundee's waterfront thanks
The building's complex curves mean none of its walls
The advanced design has been made possible by a detailed three-D
digital model which controls every aspect of the project.
Our science correspondent Kenneth Macdonald has this report.
The V Dundee will showcase the best in design.
The design of its building is so complex, so curvy,
it couldn't have been built five years ago.
Here is one example of how complex this design is.
This wall curves this way but it also curves that way.
This wall, this thick, is holding the building up.
It is a sculpture with the building in it.
There is not a square metre of the facade which is the same.
No-one sat down at a drawing board to create this.
from which everything else builds. as a detailed digital model
This was a building that we had to approach as a 3-D object.
The structure is one big overall machine,
the walls, roofs, floors, they all interact and each other.
It is one piece of design so we cannot chop it up into bits.
The V Dundee will open next year, packed with design classics.
It's already a trendsetter in building design and technology.

Well, it's over to Kirsteen now with the weather outlook
A fine end to the day with plenty of sunshine. Under clear skies tonight
with light winds if I leave -- a fairly widespread and sharp frost
will develop, particularly in rural areas. Temperatures are widely
falling below freezing. We expect perhaps as low as -8 in some
sheltered rural parts of the Highlands. Thicker cloud working its
way into the north-west by the end of the night and the temperatures
will return ton recover somewhat. Cold sunshine in the morning. During
the day, some high cloud spills in from the west, turning the sunshine
hazy across many areas. Thicker cloud in the north-west will produce
some light and patchy outbreaks of rain across the Western Isles.
Across the rest of the UK, cloudy in the afternoon across Northern
Ireland, high pressure in England and Wales, plenty of brightness.
Quite a cool feel for most of us. Freshening south to south-westerly
winds across the western and Northern Isles. Tomorrow evening,
cloudy for most of us and we will see the rain across the Western
Isles begin to move further south and east during the night. On
Wednesday, a fair amount of cloud, some rain across the south-east in
the morning and then light and patchy rain working its way into
Western coastal areas. The best of the brightness and sunshine will be
across the north-east. It will be milder noticeably than lately,
particularly in the sunshine in the north-east, temperatures at around
15. Over the next few days, largely dry, some light rain in the West,
the best sunshine in the east, much milder.
But, from everyone on the late team, goodnight.
