A Glasgow vet who was caught up in Presdent Trump's American flight
ban has learned a crowdfunding appeal has raised enough to pay
Hamaseh Tayari was told she could not fly from Costa Rica
via New York as she travels with an Iranian passport.
Half-day holiday in the paradise of Costa Rica, Hamaseh Tayari and her
boyfriend found themselves caught up in a nightmare because she travels
on and uranium passport. We arrived at the airport and they were doing
the checking for others to fly to New York and then from there to
Glasgow. The people at the check-in told me it was not allowed. I was
really upset, I'm still upset. And a little bit afraid. Hamaseh Tayari is
a vet and a specialist animal anaesthetist. As well as completing
postdoctoral studies at Glasgow, she has been teaching there. And makes a
lot of us feel very ashamed of behalf of America, because most of
us don't want to keep anyone out, especially well meaning people who
are just taking their way the world. The universities say they will give
her all the support they can. We will do all we can it supports
Hamaseh Tayari as she travels from her holiday and any practical
support we can offer. From my point of view, it is also about supporting
all of our staff and students if they are caught up in situations
like this, because the university is about the freedom of movement of
people, ideas and intellect. Donald Trump says his travel by will keep
terrorists out of the United States, Trump says his travel by will keep
though the order has now been suspended by a US judge. Meanwhile,
an online appeal set up last night raised all the money to pay for new
flights home for Hamaseh Tayari and her partner.
A ceremony has been held to mark the centenary
32 men died when the boilers of a submarine blew up.
The incident was one of the first submarine rescues.
Reevel Alderson reports from Faslane.
Colours lowered in Faslane's Cemetery to commemorate a submarine
disaster a century ago. This steam fired submarine sank in 50 feet of
water in the Gareloch when the engine room was flooded, killing 32
men. Among those who died was this man whose great-grandchildren were
at the ceremony. My grandmother was 15 and they were pretty much
penniless. When they were down there, my grandmother met my
grandfather who was also in the Navy and that led to the two of us here,
so there's a direct link between us being here and the submarine, in a
way. The men who died our board and the cemetery maintained by the
Commonwealth War commission. Among them were six men from the shipyard
and they were due to hand the vessel over to the Navy. The ceremony was
also a celebration of an incredible rescue of a further 48 men who were
trapped for 57 hours on the sea bed before being freed. They kept their
cool down there. They were careful to conserve air and knew it was
running out, but they knew how to minimise the amount of oxygen they
used. They took all the right precautions for the people inside as
well as outside and they thought about it hard. The summary was
recommissioned and since then, the Royal Navy has never given a vessel
recommissioned and since then, the is unlucky number 13.
Football, and Celtic have broken a 50-year-old club record today.
Their 4-0 Premiership win over Hearts surpassed the previous
that was established by the legendary Lisbon Lions.
Our senior football reporter Chris McLaughlin
It is an achievement that should not be underestimated, especially given
the side who set the record half a century ago. The famous Lisbon
Lions, led by the manner with the standard named after him and the
statue also. Brendan Rodgers not quite up there yet, but he has
brought the feel-good factor back to this club. He says he does not
expect this site to go the whole season unbeaten, be given today's
showing, it is difficult to see just who will stop them.
The organisers of the Great Scottish Run half-marathon have been out
measuring the distance of the course.
Some runners in last year's event thought the course was too short.
It also raised a question mark over the Olympian,
It's 530 in the morning and we are outside Pollok country Park and the
organisers of this Run were out early this morning measuring the
course accompanied by police riders clearing the road ahead of them.
Why? Well, many of the runners who took part last year said they
thought the cause was shorter than usual, but 200 metres shorter than
the 13.1 mile for the half marathon it is supposed to be. For many of
the thousands who took part, that distance probably won't make much
difference, but for a professional runner, it could be crucial, not
least Callum Hawkins, the Scot who won last year's event and set a new
record as well. The cause is being measured, the organisers behind the
run said they will release results tomorrow.
In Bowls, it's a fifth world title for Scotlands Paul Foster.
The man from Troon claimed the top prize at the world
indoor Championship, beating England's Greg Harlow
Let's get the weather for this evening and the start of the week -
It's been a lovely day of weather for most, with spells of sunshine
for many. Tonight though, those clear skies Meaney will be cold and
frosty. South of the border, pretty wet. But the low pressure was
pulling away. A South easily will introduce a moist air for Scotland
overnight and could lead to fog. The many, cold and frosty and the cold
start to Monday morning. The fog moving to the Lowlands and it could
be stubborn to clear. Mild on the West Coast and across the aisles.
Through Monday, the best of the sunshine across northern parts of
Thailand and Grampian. Elsewhere, cloudy. Any fog patches could be
stubborn. South of the border, and it try a weather across the eastern
counties of England and through the Midlands, Wales and the South, rain.
Same for Northern Ireland. Best of the sunshine tomorrow. Cloud imports
of Ayrshire, Dumfries Galloway. Elsewhere, largely dry. Brightening
up for most. It will be cold, especially where there is no. Quite
windy on the West Coast. Monday night, cloud builds and the rain
arrives. Tuesday morning, pretty soggy. Lunchtime, most of it will
have gone, dryer, still cloudy but milder with temperatures opening --
have gone, dryer, still cloudy but approach in double figures.
Our next update's just after the ten o'clock news.
