Good evening. First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has called for a veil
explanation following reports that a Trident missile veered off course
during a test. The UK Government has underlined its stake in the Trident
system amid concerns about the reliability of the Clyde -based
nuclear deterrent. Newspaper reports suggested there
was a malfunction when an unarmed missile was test launched from
nuclear submarine Vengeance of the coast of Florida. Instead of heading
into the Atlantic Ocean, it appeared back towards America. The claims
prompted for the SNP to call for a full disclosure of the events. This
is a very serious issue, and issued in which the means to be
transparency. If people had known what had taken place, at the very
least there would have been some searching questions asked. This is
utterly wrong, this is using secrecy about these matters to actually
overcome scrutiny. Just weeks later, the Commons voted to spend billions
of pounds replacing Trident but there was no mention of the misfire
from the government. Today, the Prime Minister refused to say
whether she knew of the incident at the time of the crucial vote.
Did you know? There are tests that take place all the time regularly
for our nuclear deterrent. What we were talking about...
In a statement, Downing Street and the MoD said the capability and
effectiveness of the Trident missile was unquestionable.
The Scottish Government's Brexit minister says the SNP will vote
against triggering Article 50, which will lead to Britain within the
European Union. Mike Russell says he does not think there is any
possibility of SNP MPs supporting the bill. The Scottish Conservative
figures confirmed that the SNP had no interest in working
constructively with the UK Government on Brexit.
Andy Murray's dreams of a first-ever Australian open winner over. He
suffered a shock defeat overnight to Germany's competitor. He had been
the favourite to win after Novak Djokovic was knocked out on
Thursday. A disappointing loss today for sure. A tough one. You know, one
of the biggest events and one that I wanted to do better at. But, yes, I
have other drawbridges in my life now. A disappointing end to last
year. Try to understand what I could have done a little better and
improve, come back and then try again.
There were 2/4-round ties in the Scottish cup today. Scotland meet
Albion 300 and the other match between Celtic and Albion finish
1-0. Heads will meet winners of the replayed match in the next round.
Film stars and hundreds of fans have turned out for the premiere of
Trainspotting two in Edinburgh tonight. 20 years on from the first
film, the original actors were all out in force and our arts
correspondent has been talking to them.
Something something very emotional and deep about it. I think because
these are people that we know. Cut these are people that we know. Cut
-- Spot, Diane, there are people that we sort of know. When I read
the script again, here they are and this is what they have been up to
and this is what they are thinking now. It is amazing to step back into
their shoes and hear their voices again, it was a very special.
Choose life, choose Facebook, Twitter and hope that someone from
workers. They are missed you, man. I missed you too, Spot. For all of us,
this time, these stories are fundamentally shaped our careers and
it felt like if you were going to seriously try and do it again you
have to try to do it properly. We should make it in Edinburgh and then
we felt that we should end it by having the premiere here as well. It
is a lot easier logistically to having it in London. Everything
happens they are but these stories belong here. 20 years of the good
invitation to people to see it in a certain context. You know, it is not
just like 14 years later, this is like this amount of time. It is...
In another 20 years? Watch this space!
Let's have a look at the weather. Hello, Cezanne, thank you. Good
Hello, C zanne, thank you. Good evening to you all. Most of us have
had quite a lot of cloud around today and it is good enough, with
some spectrum spots of rain. Cast your mind back if you lived in the
north-east with this beautiful sunshine earlier today. The good
news is that is more widespread tomorrow across the country, largely
crisp, finance dry conditions in store. Back to tonight, there is
still a bit of clothing east. Thick enough for some outbreaks of patchy,
light rain. Across the West, clear conditions by the end of the night,
pushing in eastwards. A widespread frost as temperatures widely dipped
below freezing. Maybe some patches of ice on untreated roads and
services and some isolated patches of frog, Iqbal lately across
Dumfries and Galloway pushing into the central belt. A crisp start to
tomorrow but a good deal of sunshine if you're heading out first thing.
The problem is further towards the south of England, summer Stalker
unfold across much of southern England. In May of this year will be
aware weather warning is in course during the morning so check ahead if
you have any travel plans with your reports, flight disruption possible.
Temperatures widely around 4-7 C, so cold under the sunshine. Tomorrow
evening, we started to see a change. The wind direction coming in from
the south. Win32 strength across the West al. Outbreaks of rain pushing
in the clouds pushing in across parts of the south-west, with
isolated for developing as well. It may be quite stubborn to clear and
by Tuesday, cloudy conditions and outbreaks of rain. The best of any
sunshine for the use and for all, notably milder.
That his Reporting Scotland. Our next update it as at 6:25am tomorrow
morning. Until then, good night.
