    Toddler Madison Horn was "brutally attacked in her own home", a prosecutor has told jurors.

    Advocate depute Jennifer Bain said there was a compelling circumstantial case against the accused Kevin Park.

    Miss Bain said: "Unless Kevin Park is an incredibly unlucky babysitter he caused these injuries."

    But defence QC Mark Stewart said there had been a sub-standard forensic examination of the toddler's home and a lack of firm evidence.

    Mr Park, 27, denies murdering Madison at the family home in Kelty, Fife, in April.

    Passenger numbers at some of Scotland's major airports were higher this October than they were in 2013.

    The £50,000 legal case is being funded by public donations from those opposed to the plan. The No To Named Persons (NO2NP) campaign group claims MSPs have exceeded their powers.

    The Dundee scientists found a combination of two drugs reversed the key features of the disease in nine out of 10 patients who took part.

    The team say the work is at an early stage and a large-scale trial is needed but it could be a "potential game-changer".

  30. Rep of Ireland relish Scots tilt

    Alasdair Lamont

    BBC Scotland

    The Republic of Ireland manager Martin O'Neill says his side will go to Celtic Park in search of victory, but concedes a draw against Scotland would suit them better than it would the Scots.

    O'Neill is relishing a return to the stadium where he achieved great success as the Celtic manager, but stresses his focus is entirely on the match and not the hype surrounding his return. He says he's unconcerned about the possibility of a hostile reception for the Scots-born pair of Aiden McGeady and James McCarthy, who didn't train on Tuesday because of a hamstring problem.

    Rep of Ireland manager Martin O'Neill

    O'Neill believes both players will take any flak in their strides. Shay Given, meanwhile, reckons some of the comments regarding McGeady and McCarthy have been "out of order" and believes Ireland and the two players in particular can use that to their benefit.

    Both Given and O'Neill acknowledged the improvement in Scotland under Gordon Strachan, with Given noting the greater attacking threat the Scots now pose.

    Promoters of the Jim Clark Rally have announced they plan to stage an event in May next year after Scottish Borders Council said it could not be held.

    Three people were killed while watching this year's event.

    The local authority said the rally could not be held in May 2015 as detailed planning could not begin with investigations still ongoing.

    However, a statement from rally promoters said they planned to stage an event on the weekend of 30 and 31 May.

  35. Property market 'turning point'

    Properties in Scotland are typically selling for £8,000 more than their asking price, according to a report.

    Website S1 Homes found that there was no longer a "reality gap" in most areas of Scotland.

    Scottish flats

    The reality gap is the difference between what sellers hope to sell their properties for and the price they actually achieve.

    S1 said the latest figures marked "a turning point" in the property market and its latest quarterly house price report found flats were typically selling for £27,000 more than their asking price.

  37. Tory leader responds to abuse

    The openly gay leader of the Scottish Conservatives has hit out at homophobic abuse directed at her online.

    Ruth Davidson said the language used had been unacceptable, and urged people to join her in challenging such abuse when they see it.

    Ruth Davidson

    She spoke out after secondary teachers said homophobic bullying was still rife in schools.

    "I don't want young LGBT people reading my timeline and thinking that sort of language is OK. I don't want them believing that the only response is to just sit passively and take it," Ms Davidson wrote in the Daily Record newspaper.

    "We can help young people by calling out this abuse when we see it. We'd never let casual racism go unchallenged, so why is casual homophobia given a free pass?"

    David McKay, Portknockie: Why is it that the arts sector gets any funding at all? At a time when government and local councils are looking to makes cuts to essential services funding the arts seems to me to be an extraordinary waste of public money. If artists are producing things that the public want, they will be funded by selling their work or putting bums on seats. If they can't do that the public interest argument for supporting them goes out the window.

  39. World's End murder trial

    The accused man Angus Sinclair has been giving evidence for the first time.

    He told the High Court in Livingston he had consensual sex with teenagers Helen Scott and Christine Eadie after meeting them in Edinburgh's World's End pub.

    The Press and Journal

    A former leader of Highland Council has accused the local authority of using European legislation as "an excuse" not to subsidise the Corran Ferry.

    The Corran Ferry

    Dr Michael Foxley, who was a local councillor for 26 years, argued the lifeline service - linking the remote peninsula communities of Ardnamurchan, Ardgour and Moidart to the mainland - brought millions of pounds into the Highland economy.

    Council officers last week warned the community service committee that subsidising the route could break state aid rules by distorting competition.

  43. Midwife abortion ruling

    The UK Supreme Court will be asked to rule on whether two Roman Catholic midwives have a right to refuse to take any part in abortion procedures on moral grounds.

    Last year, Appeal Court judges in Scotland said the two had a right to conscientious objection, but Greater Glasgow Health Board is appealing the decision.

    Southern General Hospital

    Legal commentator Joshua Rozenberg explained the background to the case on Good Morning Scotland.

    "The problem is that the Southern General Hospital in Glasgow has changed its policy over the years, and now terminations are dealt with in the same ward as these two people supervise," he said.

    "As a result of that, these midwives are being asked to supervise staff who carry out terminations. They don't have to do the terminations themselves but maybe if someone goes off on a meal break they might have to find someone to step in."

  44. Murray aims to serve up victory

    Andy Murray faces Milos Raonic this evening with his ATP World Tour Finals hopes on the line.

    The Scot lost his opening Group B match in straight sets against Kei Nishikori and now faces a battle to qualify for the semi-finals.

    Murray is likely to require two victories and it could come down to how many sets or games have been won.

    Andy Murray

    "I'm going to have to win those two matches and try to win them well if I can," Murray said. "It's going to be tough and I'll need to play better than I did on Sunday.

    "But that's the nice thing about the round-robin - if this was another tournament I'd be going home, whereas here at least I have another opportunity to try and get back in the tournament."

    Six priority areas for Scottish wildcat conservation have been identified following research commissioned by Scottish Natural Heritage.


    Mixing with domestic cats, disease and loss of habitat have led to wildcats becoming an endangered species.

    The six areas are The Angus Glens, Strathbogie in Aberdeenshire, Strathavon in Moray and Morvern, Strathpeffer and Dulnain in the Highlands.

  49. Rail injury

    A 21-year-old man has been taken to hospital after being found with burns on a rail line in Glasgow.

    British Transport Police were called to the scene, near Nursery Street, behind the Tramway Theatre, at about 06:40.

    It is believed the man may have come into contact with overhead power lines.

    The incident led to many train delays during the morning commute.

  50. Energy bills 'social tariff'

    Steven McKenzie

    BBC Scotland Highlands and Islands reporter

    Councillors and campaigners on the Western Isles have urged SSE to push on with its work towards a "social tariff" for energy bills.

    Comhairle nan Eilean Siar and Western Isles Poverty Action Group want an end to the 2p per unit surcharge consumers in the Highlands and Islands pay.


    The surcharge is levied because of the higher cost of delivering power there.

    In a meeting on Lewis, SSE said it was committed to a national price which would spread network costs evenly, but any change to the pricing would require the approval of the energy regulator Ofgem.

    During Monday's meeting, a petition of more than 1,150 names calling for the surcharge to be removed was presented to SSE representatives.

  51. Scotland v Republic of Ireland

    It has been predicted the pair will be targeted because they were born in Scotland but pledged their allegiance to the Republic of Ireland.

    And Houghton, who was also born in Scotland but played for Ireland, said: "You're going to get some stick from the fans. So what?

    "If you're a top player you get that."

    BBC Scotland

    Inverness based theatre company Dogstar will hold a meeting tonight to decide whether to dissolve the company after being refused funding by Creative Scotland.

    They say being refused three-year funding for the third time in their 15 year history was the final straw.

    Around 100 organisations had their funding applications turned down. There were twice as many applications as funds available.

    Creative Scotland said talks were ongoing with different organisations and that it couldn't discuss the details. But Chief Executive Janet Archer said she was keen to help them find alternative funds.

  59. Payday loans

    BBC Radio Scotland

    Citizens Advice Scotland (CAS) has welcomed new curbs on payday loans - but says they should have gone further.

    The Financial Conduct Authority will limit daily interest rates to 0.8% - and says no borrower will ever pay back more than twice what they borrowed.

    Fraser Sutherland, from CAS, told Good Morning Scotland the repayment cap should have been lower and a cooling off period should be introduced to stop people taking on repeat loans.

  60. Dennistoun rape

    A 26-year-old woman was raped on her way home from a night out with friends in Glasgow at the weekend.

    She was offered a lift home after leaving the Sanctuary Nightclub in Dumbarton Road and got into the car, possibly a taxi, with two men.

    Firpark Street

    When she got out in Firpark Street, Dennistoun, in the early hours of Sunday morning, one of the men attacked her.

    Det Insp Liz McLean said: "This young woman thought these men were going to help her when in reality they were intent on causing her harm. She is extremely distressed by what has happened and it's vital we trace both men."

  67. Child abuse

    BBC Radio Scotland

    Martin Crewe, director of Barnardos Scotland, says there is no room for complacency on the issue of child abuse in Scotland.


    The Scottish government will announce new measures later to tackle the problem.

    Mr Crewe told Good Morning Scotland he doesn't think the "exact nature of Rotherham is happening in Scotland now", but a range of problems exist including some organised abuse.

    "A lot of the youngsters we deal with don't see themselves as being exploited," he added. "They think they have an older boyfriend who cares for them, even when they are in an abusive relationship."

    Some of Scotland's biggest councils will have to save at least £150m between them next year, according to figures collated by BBC Scotland.

    But many have warned this is a drop in the ocean compared to how much they will need to save in the future.

    Councils are currently working out what cuts in spending to make next year to balance their books.

    Most will reach their final decisions in February. One of the biggest budget consultations is in Highland, which faces distinctive challenges.

    New plans to tackle child abuse will be announced by Scottish education secretary Michael Russell later.

    It follows calls from a number of charities for a national action plan.

    Concerns have been raised about systematic child sexual exploitation of the type uncovered in Rotherham.

    A recent report by the Care Inspectorate in Scotland warned that agencies north of the border could not afford to be complacent.

    In September, it was revealed 1,400 children had been abused in Rotherham in South Yorkshire between 1997 and 2013.
