Good evening.

0:00:160:00:18

Wales' Six Nations title hopes have come crashing down,

0:00:180:00:20

after they were thumped by an impressive Scottish

0:00:200:00:22

side at Murrayfield.

0:00:220:00:23

They were beaten 29-13, and failed to score a single

0:00:230:00:26

point in the second half.

0:00:260:00:28

Coach Rob Howley says the result is hugely disappointing.

0:00:280:00:31

Bruised and battered, Wales' championship hopes

0:00:310:00:34

ended by a Scottish side who simply outplayed them.

0:00:340:00:37

Fans inside Murrayfield, with its swirling wind,

0:00:370:00:39

expected a physical game - and they weren't disappointed.

0:00:390:00:41

At times it was brutal.

0:00:410:00:46

But it was Wales that looked full of running,

0:00:460:00:48

and they went ahead thanks to the quick thinking

0:00:480:00:50

of scrum-half Rhys Webb.

0:00:500:00:52

The quick tap taken, and the Scottish defence stretched,

0:00:520:00:56

Halfpenny knowingly Liam Williams would be on the outside

0:00:560:00:59

and the winger across for the game's first try.

0:00:590:01:06

With tackling that was at times ferotious, the Welsh

0:01:060:01:10

defence was outstanding.

0:01:100:01:12

And the penalties kept coming thick and fast,

0:01:120:01:15

but it was Wales who were up at half-time and went

0:01:150:01:17

into the break with a 13-9 lead.

0:01:170:01:19

The second half, though, was simply a different story.

0:01:190:01:21

It was Scotland that were fired up, and their first wave of attacks

0:01:210:01:24

saw Tommy Seymour going over in the corner -

0:01:240:01:26

a brilliant finish, and the conversion taking Scotland

0:01:260:01:28

into the lead for the first time.

0:01:280:01:30

With Lions' coach Warren Gatland keeping a close eye on who might be

0:01:300:01:33

catching the plane to New Zealand with him, it was Scotland

0:01:330:01:36

that kept building.

0:01:360:01:37

They were simply outstanding.

0:01:370:01:38

The home side in total control.

0:01:380:01:41

And Tim Visser caused more pain for Welsh fans as he went

0:01:410:01:44

through to put the men in blue even further ahead.

0:01:440:01:50

COMMENTATOR: Scotland break out, and their lead grows!

0:01:500:01:52

As the final whistle went, elation for the Scots sending Wales

0:01:520:01:55

home to think again.

0:01:550:01:56

It's about pride.

0:01:560:02:00

The next couple of games, we've got Ireland at home.

0:02:000:02:02

So it's getting back to the intensity, the execution,

0:02:020:02:04

the accuracy which we had a home.

0:02:040:02:06

It's a disappointing and frustrating second half.

0:02:060:02:08

Scotland were better than us and deserved to win.

0:02:080:02:13

So the assessment into what went wrong now begins for Wales.

0:02:130:02:17

There's much work to do before Ireland in 13 days.

0:02:170:02:21

The rest of the days' news now, and a student from Bangor

0:02:210:02:22

The rest of the days' news now, and a student from Bangor

0:02:270:02:30

is fighting plans to deport her back to Sri Lanka.

0:02:300:02:32

20-year-old Shiromini Satgunaraja is studying for a degree

0:02:320:02:35

in electronic engineering, but has been taken to a detention

0:02:350:02:37

centre after being refused asylum.

0:02:370:02:38

The National Union of Students has written to the Home Secretary,

0:02:380:02:40

asking her to intervene.

0:02:400:02:41

The Home Office says it doesn't comment on individual cases.

0:02:410:02:45

It's claimed up to 600 jobs could be created in north Wales,

0:02:450:02:50

if the UK Government chooses to build a small-scale

0:02:500:02:52

nuclear reactor at the site of the decommissioned

0:02:520:02:54

power station at Trawsfynydd.

0:02:540:02:56

The Snowdonia Enterprise Zone's chair, John Idris Jones,

0:02:560:02:58

will promote the small reactors at a conference next week.

0:02:580:03:01

Opponents argue the technology is untested.

0:03:010:03:07

600 engineers are still working to restore power

0:03:070:03:10

connections on Anglesey, following Storm Doris on Thursday.

0:03:100:03:13

Around 70 homes woke to find they had no power

0:03:130:03:16

again this morning, as Rhiannon Wilkins reports.

0:03:160:03:20

If ever the weather could reflect the mood,

0:03:200:03:22

it's here on the Anglesey coast.

0:03:220:03:25

Even so, it's better conditions than three days ago.

0:03:250:03:27

But Storm Doris has left her mark.

0:03:270:03:30

70 households on Anglesey woke this morning to find

0:03:300:03:33

they still have no power.

0:03:330:03:35

Food trucks have been providing hot food and drinks to them.

0:03:350:03:40

For days, hundreds of ScottishPower engineers have been trying

0:03:400:03:44

to resolve the damage.

0:03:440:03:46

This was the scene in Amlwch yesterday.

0:03:460:03:48

The energy provider told us it is challenging work.

0:03:480:03:51

This site here, it's very difficult.

0:03:510:03:53

We've had to build the road into this particular site.

0:03:530:03:57

We've got a number of posts that's in, and had to get to areas.

0:03:570:04:00

So it's been very difficult.

0:04:000:04:03

Replacement bus services have been running on a Arriva Trains Wales

0:04:030:04:06

between Llandudno and Blaenau Ffestiniog.

0:04:060:04:09

And Llanelli and Shrewsbury, due to damage to trains and overhead

0:04:090:04:12

wires caused by the storm forecast is called "weatherbomb".

0:04:120:04:15

In resulted in chaos and disruption across the country.

0:04:150:04:19

20 homes on Anglesey remain without power tonight.

0:04:190:04:23

The work to restore normality continues.

0:04:230:04:30

Onto football, and in the Premiership Swansea City lost

0:04:300:04:32

0:04:510:04:55

Tomorrow's weather - and a mostly dry start with some

0:04:550:04:57

brighter spells further east, but rain will soon spread

0:04:570:04:59

in from the west making it a wet afternoon for most of us.

0:04:590:05:02

Feeling mild, with highs of 12 Celsius.

0:05:020:05:04

I'll have our next update at 17:50 tomorrow evening.
