it's time for the news where you are.

:00:00.:00:00.

Police have been speaking to motorists and residents

:00:07.:00:09.

in a Glasgow suburb exactly a week after three masked men

:00:10.:00:12.

broke into a woman's home and stole ?4,500.

:00:13.:00:15.

A fourth man was waiting in a getaway car in

:00:16.:00:17.

Photographs of two of the men, taken by the family,

:00:18.:00:22.

They were pursued from the house by relatives, and what then happened

:00:23.:00:31.

was there was a stand-off as they tried to make their way

:00:32.:00:34.

into the suspect vehicle to leave, and this is why I am appealing

:00:35.:00:37.

to members of the public who may have witnessed this

:00:38.:00:40.

It was a very busy road and a busy time of the evening and that is why

:00:41.:00:45.

we are making an appeal to the public.

:00:46.:00:47.

Efforts are under way to clear a major illegal waste dump which has

:00:48.:00:51.

brought swarms of flies to people's homes to the south of Glasgow.

:00:52.:00:53.

The public is being asked to help track down those responsible

:00:54.:00:56.

for the massive piles of refuse dumped at a warehouse

:00:57.:01:00.

The Scottish Environment Protection Agency says calls about the former

:01:01.:01:04.

Netherplace Dye Works will be treated in confidence.

:01:05.:01:09.

Police are investigating allegations that a former member of staff

:01:10.:01:12.

double-booked weddings at a luxury castle near Forfar in Angus and made

:01:13.:01:15.

Guthrie Castle's website has a message asking anyone who's booked

:01:16.:01:21.

a wedding or event to get in touch with them.

:01:22.:01:23.

Guthrie Castle sits here in the Angus countryside,

:01:24.:01:30.

It is a very popular venue for weddings.

:01:31.:01:36.

But the castle's website has been taken down and replaced by a message

:01:37.:01:39.

asking anyone who has booked a wedding here or other events

:01:40.:01:42.

The allegations circulating on social media are that a former

:01:43.:01:48.

member of staff double-booked weddings and pocketed the deposits.

:01:49.:01:54.

I spoke to one man who is due to have his wedding in October.

:01:55.:01:59.

He phoned the castle and they said they could not check his booking

:02:00.:02:02.

because it was a bank holiday today but they would be back

:02:03.:02:04.

Understandably, he is very concerned to know whether his wedding

:02:05.:02:10.

will be going ahead in just six months' time.

:02:11.:02:13.

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

:02:14.:02:17.

The use of recorded video updates for parents whose babies

:02:18.:02:23.

are in hospital is being trialled to help families stay connected.

:02:24.:02:27.

The pilot project at Glasgow's Royal Hospital

:02:28.:02:30.

for Children is thought to be a first in the UK.

:02:31.:02:33.

She has spent her life so far in hospital.

:02:34.:02:40.

Her parents, like many, cannot always be there

:02:41.:02:42.

So doctors have come up with a solution.

:02:43.:02:48.

We spoke to parents and said, what would be a good

:02:49.:02:50.

A father himself suggested video messaging might be

:02:51.:02:54.

Staff record and film updates of the babies

:02:55.:03:01.

Nurses hope it will also mean their phones will ring less often.

:03:02.:03:12.

We would hope in the future that we could use this

:03:13.:03:15.

for all the babies, so it would mean when the parents wake up

:03:16.:03:18.

in the morning they will see a video of their baby,

:03:19.:03:21.

they will not see the need to phone in, they will just get up and get

:03:22.:03:25.

When you were at home, what was it like to click

:03:26.:03:30.

on the link and see your baby when you are at home?

:03:31.:03:36.

It was difficult to go home but you need to.

:03:37.:03:39.

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

:03:40.:03:44.

taken during the night, things like getting weighed

:03:45.:03:46.

and when they had just changed her and she had a new outfit

:03:47.:03:49.

on or a video of her going back to sleep again.

:03:50.:03:52.

It was nice to show our older son who could not come up

:03:53.:03:55.

It is early days for this trial but clinical staff hope to offer it

:03:56.:04:04.

to any family on the neonatal ward and there has been interest

:04:05.:04:07.

in expanding the scheme to other hospitals in Glasgow and in London.

:04:08.:04:16.

The outgoing Dundee manager Paul Hartley says he's in no doubt

:04:17.:04:20.

he leaves the club in a far stronger position than when he first

:04:21.:04:24.

Hartley was sacked today, with the club 11th

:04:25.:04:26.

in the Premiership - that's the relegation playoff spot.

:04:27.:04:28.

They've lost their last seven league matches.

:04:29.:04:31.

Hartley released a statement saying he respects the board's decision.

:04:32.:04:36.

The newest visitor attraction in Inverness has opened

:04:37.:04:38.

Visitors to Inverness Castle Viewpoint can get a 360-degree view

:04:39.:04:44.

of many of the famous landmarks in the surrounding area.

:04:45.:04:46.

Only 59 people are allowed on the platform at any one time.

:04:47.:04:53.

The new V Design Museum is taking shape on Dundee's waterfront thanks

:04:54.:04:56.

The building's complex curves mean none of its walls

:04:57.:05:01.

The advanced design has been made possible by a detailed three-D

:05:02.:05:06.

digital model which controls every aspect of the project.

:05:07.:05:08.

Our science correspondent Kenneth Macdonald has this report.

:05:09.:05:14.

The V Dundee will showcase the best in design.

:05:15.:05:16.

The design of its building is so complex, so curvy,

:05:17.:05:20.

it couldn't have been built five years ago.

:05:21.:05:23.

Here is one example of how complex this design is.

:05:24.:05:25.

This wall curves this way but it also curves that way.

:05:26.:05:30.

This wall, this thick, is holding the building up.

:05:31.:05:37.

It is a sculpture with the building in it.

:05:38.:05:39.

There is not a square metre of the facade which is the same.

:05:40.:05:42.

No-one sat down at a drawing board to create this.

:05:43.:05:52.

from which everything else builds. as a detailed digital model

:05:53.:06:02.

This was a building that we had to approach as a 3-D object.

:06:03.:06:05.

The structure is one big overall machine,

:06:06.:06:06.

the walls, roofs, floors, they all interact and each other.

:06:07.:06:09.

It is one piece of design so we cannot chop it up into bits.

:06:10.:06:12.

The V Dundee will open next year, packed with design classics.

:06:13.:06:15.

It's already a trendsetter in building design and technology.

:06:16.:06:17.

Kenneth Macdonald, Reporting Scotland, Dundee.

:06:18.:06:18.

Well, it's over to Kirsteen now with the weather outlook

:06:19.:06:21.

A fine end to the day with plenty of sunshine. Under clear skies tonight

:06:22.:06:33.

with light winds if I leave -- a fairly widespread and sharp frost

:06:34.:06:36.

will develop, particularly in rural areas. Temperatures are widely

:06:37.:06:41.

falling below freezing. We expect perhaps as low as -8 in some

:06:42.:06:47.

sheltered rural parts of the Highlands. Thicker cloud working its

:06:48.:06:53.

way into the north-west by the end of the night and the temperatures

:06:54.:06:59.

will return ton recover somewhat. Cold sunshine in the morning. During

:07:00.:07:04.

the day, some high cloud spills in from the west, turning the sunshine

:07:05.:07:10.

hazy across many areas. Thicker cloud in the north-west will produce

:07:11.:07:14.

some light and patchy outbreaks of rain across the Western Isles.

:07:15.:07:21.

Across the rest of the UK, cloudy in the afternoon across Northern

:07:22.:07:23.

Ireland, high pressure in England and Wales, plenty of brightness.

:07:24.:07:34.

Quite a cool feel for most of us. Freshening south to south-westerly

:07:35.:07:36.

winds across the western and Northern Isles. Tomorrow evening,

:07:37.:07:40.

cloudy for most of us and we will see the rain across the Western

:07:41.:07:44.

Isles begin to move further south and east during the night. On

:07:45.:07:50.

Wednesday, a fair amount of cloud, some rain across the south-east in

:07:51.:07:54.

the morning and then light and patchy rain working its way into

:07:55.:07:58.

Western coastal areas. The best of the brightness and sunshine will be

:07:59.:08:02.

across the north-east. It will be milder noticeably than lately,

:08:03.:08:09.

particularly in the sunshine in the north-east, temperatures at around

:08:10.:08:15.

15. Over the next few days, largely dry, some light rain in the West,

:08:16.:08:18.

the best sunshine in the east, much milder.

:08:19.:08:25.

But, from everyone on the late team, goodnight.

:08:26.:08:30.
