Eyemouth - EU cod laws
A fishing boat heads out to sea at Eyemouth harbour, in the Scottish Borders. The small Scottish fishing town of Eyemouth has experienced tragedy from the sea but now the community faces a new and even greater threat from across the water. * Residents still remember the disaster of 1881 when 189 fishermen died within sight of their loved ones as their boats struggled to reach the harbour. And now they fear for the future of their fishing community once again as the European Commission sets out its proposals to conserve cod fish stocks. European scientists last month proposed a blanket ban on cod fishing - a move which would effectively close the seas around Scotland and throw thousands of fishermen on the dole. 19/12/03: A new European fishing deal was secured today, after 30 hours of gruelling talks in Brussels. Agreement came after all-night negotiations as fisheries ministers fought to head off another round of drastic cuts to avoid the collapse of cod stocks. 07/12/04: According to a report from the Royal Commission on Environmental Pollution, fishing should be banned in almost a third of UK waters to protect the marine environment and save threatened fish species. Today the commission finds that policies to control fishing have failed and radical change is needed to shift their focus from commercial over-exploitation to long-term protection of the marine environment.
Weather - Snow - Stirling, Scotland
Sheep graze on a snow-covered field near Stirling, Scotland, as the first snows of winter hit Scotland after one of the warmest autumns on record. The temperatures have now slipped down to freezing, although it will be feeling even colder than that in some parts of the country because of a bitterly cold north-wind. The snowfalls and cold spell follow the warmest October since records began in 1659.
Princess Royal opens National park in Scotland
A Dalmatian dog takes a walk along the banks of Loch Lomond which was formally opened by the Princess Royal as Scotland`s first National park with the Trossachs. 08/08/02 : Police today warned youngsters not to swim in unsupervised waters, following the death of a teenager who drowned in a loch during a recent mini heatwave. The 19-year-old was playing with friends at Balloch Bridge, on the southern shore of Loch Lomond near Dumbarton, when he got into difficulties at about 5pm yesterday. Members of the public were unable to save him. 14/11/02 : The future shape of Scotland s second national park was today being announced by the Executive. Deputy environment minister Allan Stewart was set to make the announcement in Edinburgh, after a summer of controversy over the boundaries of the national park for the Cairngorms. The minister was also expected to give the final Executive verdict on how planning matters should be handled within the national park. The country s first national park, covering Loch Lomond and the Trossachs, has planning powers over what happens within its boundary. But when draft details of the Cairngorms national park were outlined in May, planning powers were to be shared between the park authority and local authorities. That, and the size of the park - critics say the present proposals amount only to a Northern Cairngorms National Park, splitting many Cairngorm summits in half - has proved fiercely controversial.
