    Police search

    Researchers at Dundee and Napier universities studied a pilot run by Police Scotland's Fife division between November and February, which aimed to improve public perception of search procedures.

    The report concluded that "confusion and bad feelings remain" and stop-and-search should be used only as a "last resort".

    "Two deaths in a year at the quarry just cannot be allowed to go on."

  11. Body of man found in River Clyde

    The body of a man has been recovered from the River Clyde in Glasgow.

  13. The battle ahead for Scottish Labour

    Brian Taylor

    Political editor, Scotland

    What does Labour in Scotland need? A prolonged period of study and debate, to examine what has gone wrong for the party and to work out how to put it right.

    Will it get that? Nope. Elections are pending - elections are always pending - this time for Holyrood. OK, they are not until next May. Hands up those who think Scottish Labour is ready and raring to go for that contest. Yes, thanks. Hands down.

    Ken Macintosh and Kezia Dugdale

  14. Football: Who is in, who is out?

    Celtic will not be signing Scotland internationals Steven Fletcher and Ikechi Anya, according to John Collins.

    The 22-year-old originally joined the club on loan from Dundee in January and recorded 17 starts and scored three goals before suffering a knee injury at Falkirk at the start of May.

    Boyle underwent successful surgery to repair his medial ligament in the summer and the Edinburgh-born winger says he is delighted to have secured his future with Hibernian.

    And Dundee United boss Jackie McNamara says the club's position on Nadir Ciftci is unchanged.

    "She was very cold, dehydrated and frightened," he said.

    A judge has ruled that air accident investigators should hand over the black box from a North Sea helicopter crash in which four people died.

    Scotland's top law officer had sought the cockpit voice recorder from the accident off Shetland in 2013 to examine whether or not anyone was criminally responsible.

    Coastguard rescue helicopter

    The Air Accidents Investigation Branch had previously claimed that releasing the recorder would hamper their work.

  47. Council to make £100m cuts

    Good Morning Scotland

    BBC Radio Scotland

    The leader of Glasgow City Council says the authority is "ahead of the curve" when it comes to making £100m of savings to their budget over the next two years.

    Gordon Matheson

    Gordon Matheson told the BBC's Good Morning Scotland programme: "If we more efficiently run our services, like for example using technology more effectively, using our back office by reducing issues like duplication and so on, by altering work patterns, that is the way in which you can reduce budgets without impacting on services.

    "We are ahead of the curve. We're forecasting the challenges and we've got a strategic plan for dealing with them.

    Mr Matheson denied he was setting out his stall for future council tax rises.

    He said: "This is not a game." He added: "The council tax generates something like 15% of the income that I spend and to be honest I'm more interested in the other 85%, plus the billions of pounds that is spent elsewhere across the public sector."

    Mr Matheson said: "The truth is that when you look at the figures, local government has taken a disproportionate cut in our budgets but I'm not on here to winge. "

  48. Hard work ahead for Labour in Scotland

    Brian Taylor

    Political editor, Scotland

    With the nominations for the Scottish Labour leadership race due to close later. BBC Scotland's political editor, Brian Taylor, has offered his expert analysis.

    Speaking on Good Morning Scotland he said: "[Kezia Dugdale] is offering the 'fresh face, fresh thinking' pitch, despite having been the deputy to Jim Murphy, whose period in office now can be seen as an interregnum between mere decline and disaster - not that it was necessarily his fault."

    Scottish Labour leader candidates Kezia Dugdale (left) and Ken Macintosh (right)

    He added: "Ken Macintosh, when he launches his formal campaign later, will be referring back on Johann Lamont's statement that Labour in Scotland was treated like a 'branch office'.

    "He will try to remedy that with structural changes including moving the head office from Glasgow to the capital Edinburgh, to make it very much a national party headquarters."

    Mr Taylor went on to say: "Scottish Labour needs a long term rebuilding process but it hasn't got time for a long term rebuilding process because of the Scottish elections in May.

    "I don't think there's much of a mood for a separate party [from the UK], certainly among those contending for the leadership roles."

    The Sea Falcon hit the Apache's Forties Echo platform in March, causing significant damage to both the topside and the ship itself.

  51. Can Kezia dig Scottish Labour out of a hole?

    Nominations for the leadership of the Scottish Labour Party close today and so far, only two names are in the hat - former deputy leader Kezia Dugdale and Ken Macintosh.

    Kezia Dugdale with former Scottish Labour leader Jim Murphy

    The party's former leader, Johann Lamont, is supporting Ms Dugdale because she believes she "represents the new, post-referendum generation".

    Ms Lamont said: "[They are] undamaged by the arguments and the battles we had in the creation of the Scottish Parliament.

    "If she works alongside people with experience, people who have an understanding of that longer journey that we have taken and if she is supported then I think her capacities, talents and abilities will come through."

  53. Sturgeon on EU negotiations

    Good Morning Scotland

    Glenn Campbell

    Political correspondent, BBC Scotland

    BBC Scotland's political correspondent Glenn Campbell said there would be no rush from Westminster to set up a new mechanism for talks after Nicola Sturgeon's call for devolved administrations in the UK to have a say on EU negotiations ahead of the referendum.

    "She will be hoping that her idea will find some sympathy with the Labour First Minister of Wales Carwyn Jones and with the Democratic Unionist Party and Sinn Fein leadership in Northern Ireland.

    Union Jack and EU flag

    "I don't think the UK government is going to be rushing to set up some forum for these discussions to take place.

    "Downing Street has said that there was routine consultation with the devolved administrations.

    "Talking to one government source, who said Nicola Sturgeon is asking for something that she's already got because there are joint ministerial committees that exist to allow Scottish ministers to exchange views with the UK government.

    "There was a joint ministerial committee on Europe earlier this week attended by the Scottish government minister Humza Yusaf, which touched on the EU referendum issue."

    Eleanor Bradford

    BBC Scotland Health Correspondent

    "I feel like I've won the lottery," said Kerry Reid who recently benefited from a new stroke treatment.

    Just before Christmas in 2012, the then 37 year-old from Dundee woke up to find she was paralysed on one side and could not speak.

    Kerry Reid

    She was nine weeks pregnant at the time, but went on to make a full recovery and give birth to a healthy baby boy, called Sonny.

    Now, specialists are urging the Scottish government to make the new technique for removing blood clots in the brain more widely available as studies suggest it doubles the chance of recovery for people who have suffered an ischaemic stroke.

  55. Sturgeon on EU referendum

    Good Morning Scotland

    BBC Radio Scotland

    Nicola Sturgeon says the Scottish government, alongside other devolved administrations, should have a say in the UK government's current negotiations with the EU.

    The first minister told BBC Scotland: "This issue of European membership can't simply be put into a reserved box because the decisions the European Union takes, the terms of the UK's membership, impacts on our economy, impacts on jobs, impacts on industries like fishing and farming and issues like climate change.

    "These are all responsibilities of the Scottish government. So you can't simply put it in a box and say it's got nothing to do with the Scottish government. These things matter a lot to people right across this country."
