    08:55: Assisted suicide

    Proposals to legalise assisted suicide are "unnecessary, unethical and uncontrollable", according to campaigners opposed to the move.

    Care Not Killing (CNK) has launched an online petition calling on MSPs to reject a bill that would allow people to obtain help in ending their life.

    The Assisted Suicide Bill is backed by Green MSP Patrick Harvie on behalf of former independent MSP Margo MacDonald.

    Ms MacDonald died in April following a long battle with Parkinson's disease.

    08:30: Ebola warning

    A global health expert is warning that the Ebola virus is "very likely" to come to Scotland.

    Dr Devi Sridhar said isolated cases are possible, with Aberdeen one of the places most at risk because of its prominence in the oil and gas industry.

    Aberdeen councillor Barney Crockett told Good Morning Scotland: "I think we have to be appropriately concerned, but I don't think we have to make it a pressing worry to us.

    "The health service has made preparations. Our industries are used to having a worldwide approach into looking at a very careful analysis of risk. The two together, people in Scotland should take great heart from that."

    08:17: High Street sales blow

    Food sales were down 2.4%, while non-food sales decreased by 3.3% on the previous year.

    Analysts blamed uncertainty over the independence referendum and unseasonably warm weather for people staying away from the shops.

    David Martin, of the Scottish Retail Consortium, said: "September was a challenging month for retailers with a combination of factors contributing to the weakest sales performance since January 1999, excluding Easter distortions."
