The UK is to admit 20,000 Afghan refugees in recognition of the “debt of gratitude” Britain owes the country, giving a “safe and legal route” to those fleeing their homes as the Taliban complete their takeover, reports The Times.

The Daily Express says “big-hearted” Britain will take the refugees with women and girls given priority among those desperate to escape the Taliban.

UK Home Secretary Priti Patel is to urge other European countries to offer “sanctuary” to Afghans fleeing the Taliban as she announces that Britain will take in 20,000 refugees, reports The Daily Telegraph.

The Daily Mail says “terrified” Afghan interpreters are in hiding near Kabul airport as dozens of others were finally airlifted to Britain.

The i also reports that Afghan residents were in hiding as militia raided homes and arrested activists, but says that the Taliban are urging people to “trust us”.

The Metro pictures two Afghan women standing up to the Taliban, showing the world the “true meaning” of courage in contrast to the Afghan army which “melted away” as Taliban forces swept into Kabul.

Temporary powers to close schools, introduce lockdowns and require the wearing of masks could be made permanent to cover any future pandemics under proposals tabled by the Scottish government, reports The Herald.

The National says that any deal between the SNP and the Scottish Greens faces a “tight” grassroots vote and will not be a “foregone conclusion” as Greens’ members get their final say on plans next week.

More than 100 experts have urged First Minister Nicola Sturgeon to double the £10 a week child payment to help 260,000 children living in poverty and to prevent “thousands more” joining them, reports the Daily Record.

The Daily Star says new shortages are causing “chaos” with pubs left without beer and Nando’s restaurant now running out of chicken.

Dundee and Angus both recorded rises in suicides last year despite the national fall in deaths, reports The Courier.

The Press and Journal leads with the story that a study has been launched into the spread of extreme right-wing influence among communities in the Highlands and Islands.

Dundee is finally winning the “war on drugs” after years of “misery”, reports the Evening Telegraph.

The Evening Express says that a “sanitiser-obsessed” man’s “slippy hands” caused him to lose control of his car and crash.

Gangs have been blamed for the piles of industrial waste laced with asbestos dumped below a motorway at a “fly-tipping hotspot”, reports the Glasgow Times.

The Edinburgh Evening News says the UK culture minister plans to put the Edinburgh Fringe festivals at the centre of an “international tourism drive”.

(SCOTLAND/NEW YORK) LATEST: Virginia Giuffre’s lawyer has confirmed that they will seek to serve the alleged ‘sex-assault papers’ on Prince Andrew who has decamped to Balmoral Castle, Scotland #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Aug.15: Virginia Giuffre’s lawyer has confirmed they will seek to serve Prince Andrew court papers in person….

#AceDailyNews says that Prince Andrew ‘will be served ‘sex assault’ court papers in person’ according to his lawyer and the Duke is currently staying at Balmoral Castle with the Queen and Prince Charles, where he is reportedly working on his legal strategy and because he is a foreign citizen, we have to do this under the Hague Convention.’

Ms Giuffre has alleged she was raped by Prince Andrew while under the age of 18 and at a time he knew she was a victim of Jeffrey Epstein’s trafficking ring.

She claims to have ‘feared death or physical injury or another and other repercussions’ if she disobeyed Epstein, his long-time associate Ghislaine Maxwell or Prince Andrew ‘due to their powerful connections, wealth and authority’.

The California-based campaigner has filed a lawsuit in New York naming Prince Andrew as the sole defendant. 

Prince Andrew continues to strenuously deny all allegations made against him.

The Queen’s second son is yet to publicly comment on the development and it remains unclear how he intends to respond.

His accuser’s representative has shed further light on how the process could proceed. David Boies told The Telegraph: ‘We present him with a copy of the complaint in a formal way.

Under international rules covering cross-border lawsuits, the serving of court papers must satisfy conditions set out in UK law even though the civil suit has been filed in the US.

An initial court hearing is scheduled for September 13, which will take the form of a telephone conference with Manhattan federal court judge Lewis Kaplan.

It’s unclear whether either Prince Andrew or Ms Giuffre are required to join the call personally. 

The news comes amid reports Prince Charles could seek to distance his brother from the Royal Family to avoid reputational damage.

A source close to the future monarch told The Times this week: ‘He has long ago concluded that it is probably an unsolvable problem. 

‘This will probably further strengthen in the prince’s mind that a way back for the duke is demonstrably not possible, because the spectre of this [accusation] raises its head with hideous regularity.’

Prince Andrew denies any wrongdoing and has previously publicly said he can not recollect meeting Ms Giuffre.

He has also intimated a famous photograph of himself with his arm around Ms Giuffre in the home of Ghislaine Maxwell, who is awaiting a trafficking trial on charges she denies, may have been doctored.

(SCOTLAND) Busy Beaver Report: The number of beavers have more than doubled in the last three years, new figures reveal #AceNewsDesk report

Freedom 🎂🎂

#AceNewsReport – Aug.12: Natural environment agency NatureScot says there are now about 1,000 of the animals: Legislation was introduced in 2019 to make beavers a protected species, meaning it’s illegal to kill or disturb them….

#AceDailyNews says …Scotland’s beaver population doubles to 1000 in three years: Meet the UK’s first city beaver family: RZSS: The 2020 survey estimated there were beavers in 251 territories: The new population survey also found beavers are living in a wider range of areas across Scotland.

European beaver

The beavers were spotted in 251 territories including Tayside, Stirling, Forfar and Crianlarich.

NatureScot says that they are likely to expand into Loch Lomond in the future.

The animals were reintroduced in Scotland in 2009 and are valued for their impact on ecosystems and abilities as “natural engineers”.

However, those which disturb or destroy farmland can be removed under licence.

NatureScot said that in 2020 a total of 31 beavers were trapped and moved to reintroduction projects in England. A further 115 were killed. 

The agency’s director of sustainable growth, Robbie Kernahan, said: “Wildlife is declining in Scotland so this extensive survey is great news for nature.

“Beavers play a vital role in creating and restoring wetlands where other species can thrive, reducing downstream flooding and improving water quality.”

A previous survey in 2017 identified 114 active territories with an estimated 433 beavers. 

This increased to an estimated population of about 954 in the survey for the 2020 Beaver Management Report held last winter.

It gathered information on the locations of beaver territories, as well as assessing the health and spread of the population.

‘Ecosystem engineers’

Researchers searched on foot and by canoe across, finding 13,204 confirmed signs of beavers such as burrows, dams, lodges and crop feeding. 

Dr Roisin Campbell-Palmer, the report’s lead author, said beavers provided “important biodiversity benefits” although some impacts were challenging alongside land-use practices. 

She added: “This survey will hopefully provide valuable information to land managers and policy makers seeking to maximise the benefits and minimise the conflicts associated with the return of beavers to our rivers.”

NFU Scotland President Martin Kennedy said a management framework to help beaver populations, while limiting damage to agricultural land, had been “developed successfully”.

He added: “Farmers remain committed to playing their part in managing the species.

“However, it is vitally important that where mitigation measures are not working, and significant agricultural damage continues to occur, that licenced lethal control remains as a last resort.”

Scottish Greens environment spokesman, Mark Ruskell MSP, said the population growth did not “excuse the killing or exporting” more than a tenth of the population last year. 

He added: “Much more can be done to manage and resolve cases where conflict arises, especially through relocating animals to areas where they can thrive, creating eco-tourism opportunities and helping restore wetlands.”

#AceDailyNews says here are todays Scotland’s Paper’s: On course’ for level zero and holiday rules relax and the Scotsman carries the same story with a more hesitant take, as it highlights the case rate is the highest in Europe, as a result, some experts have called for the move to level zero to be delayed, the paper says

July.03, 2021: @acenewsservices

Mail
BBC Is Not Responsbile for constant of external sites as The Scottish Daily Mail leads with the first minister’s call for people in Scotland to get both doses of the Covid vaccine in order to “get ahead” of the virus. The paper says Nicola Sturgeon remains hopeful about the move to level zero on 19 July, meaning the country is “on course for freedom”.

In a similar vein, The Courier singles out Dundee as having the highest case rate in the UK with “no sign of slowing down”. The paper quotes city council leader John Alexander who said Dundee had “stubbornly high” levels of poverty which could impact health outcomes for its citizens.

According to the Times, those who have been double jabbed in England will not need to isolate or take daily tests after they have been in contact with a positive case, under plans being drawn up by ministers. The move will put pressure on the Scottish government, the paper says, as it is “more cautious” about scrapping quarantine in favour of rules based on personal responsibility.

“Travel boost for holidays in Europe” is the headline dominating the front of the i weekend. The paper reports that the “hard-line stance” adopted by European Union countries around quarantine is softening, with Germany due to relax rules for British people who have been double-vaccinated.

The Herald reports that a new £8m programme to support the mental health of NHS staff could see them paying prescription charges and travelling to England to see specialists. According to the paper, the Scottish government said the travel measure was an “interim arrangement.”

Elsewhere, Cabinet Office Minister Michael Gove’s separation from his wife Sarah Vine is the Daily Telegraph’s lead story, with the paper saying the split raises coronavirus social distancing questions. Mr Gove is the second senior cabinet minister in a week to announce the end of his marriage, with Matt Hancock stepping down as health secretary last weekend after having an affair with an aide. As a senior government figure closely involved in making decisions about coronavirus measures, the paper says the split will prompt questions about Mr Gove’s own domestic arrangements.

The National reports that no member of the royal family has attended a Scotland or Wales football match this century, according to the official court circular. The paper also carries news of Mr Gove’s divorce after 20 years of marriage.

An attack on Glasgow’s Argyle Street dominates the front page of The Scottish Sun. The paper says a group of five carried out an assault with machetes on a 16-year-old in front of “horrified” shoppers.

The same story makes the Glasgow Times front page, which says the teenager who was injured is being treated in hospital.

The person who deliberately set fire to a Conservative councillor’s home may be wearing a mask and bandages to cover their injuries, reports the Daily Record. It is the third time Graeme Campbell’s property in Strathaven, South Lanarkshire, has been targeted since 2019.

A man who assaulted a number of women by choking them “almost to death” has been convicted, reports the Evening Express.

Talks between the Scottish and UK government over a potential freeport reached “near agreement”, according to The Press and Journal. Goods that arrive into freeports from abroad are exempt from tax charges, called tariffs, that are normally paid to the government. The paper says while talks are progressing, the deal for a Scottish freeport could still be “scuppered” after tensions arose over the name and conditions attached to the project.

A 64-year-old chip shop manager in Angus has been placed on the sex offenders register over comments he made to a 16-year-old, reports the Weekend Telegraph.

And the Edinburgh Evening News reports that campers living in the car park off Portobello Beach are “locked in a stand off” with the council, after refusing an instruction to remove their caravans.

Scotland’s Papers: Euros drive ‘COVID19 surge’ and nurses fight low pay according to a union representing nurses in their NHS has taken the “unprecedented step” of lodging a formal trade dispute with the Scottish government, reports The Herald.

Metro
Scotland’s highest daily number of Covid cases since the start of the pandemic features on the front page of The Metro. It is feared the surge is being driven by football fans gathering to watch Euro 2020 matches. Nearly 3,000 cases were reported on Wednesday and almost two thirds of cases in the 15 to 44 age group are male.

The Royal College of Nursing said it had “no choice” but to notify ministers as the row escalated. The paper also features a picture of members of the embattled travel industry protesting outside the Scottish Parliament about the impact of the Covid restrictions.

Scotsman The travel industry protest also features on the front page of The Scotsman. The paper’s lead story is that more than 150 members of the Scottish Greens, including four sitting councillors, have questioned their party’s decision to open talks with the SNP on a potential government coalition, claiming the party is “transphobic”.

Scottish Daily Mail Several newspapers picture the British warship HMS Defender, which was shadowed by Russian aircraft and ships as it sailed near Crimea. One of the Daily Mail’s journalists was on board at the time and has written an account of how” bursts of cannon fire rang out” as Russian jets “menaced the UK destroyer”.

The TimesThe Times says Britain has responded defiantly following the military confrontation. Defence Secretary Ben Wallace tells the paper that the Navy “will always uphold the international law of the sea and will not be impeded on innocent passage”. The paper also quotes a defence source as saying: “We chose that route and are free to choose it again.”

Daily TelegraphThe Daily Telegraph reports that German Chancellor Angela Merkel has “threatened to scupper hopes” of summer holidays in Europe, by urging EU countries to introduce quarantine for Britons. Her comments come as the UK prepares to give an update on its own travel rules, the paper says, and that the Balearic Islands, Malta and some Caribbean islands could be added to the green list.

The iThe i leads with a Long Covid study which reveals two million people have suffered lingering after-effects of the virus. Those affected have complained of tiredness, shortness of breath, muscle ache and trouble sleeping.

Scottish Daily ExpressThe Scottish Daily Express’s top story is on the annual accounts published by the Royal Family, which show the Prince of Wales carried on supporting the Duke and Duchess of Sussex with money in the months after they stepped back as senior royals. The Express says it comes after Prince Harry said his family cut him off financially.

The National Two BBC Scotland chiefs admitted to worried staff that a plan to transfer two of its studios to the control of the corporation in England was not the “best deal” for the Scottish-based arm of the broadcaster and that they opposed it, according to The National.

Scottish SunTV stars Colin McAllister and Justin Ryan were “tossed around like crash test dummies” when a police car crashed into their taxi at high speed. The couple said they were lucky to survive the accident in Quebec, Canada.

(SCOTLAND) QUEEN’S OFFICIAL BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS REPORT: Has been marked with a scaled back celebration for a second year due to #COVID19 as she awarded a number of people with honours #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.13: It comes ahead of the Queen hosting US President Joe Biden on Sunday:

Trooping the Colour: Scaled back celebration for Queen’s official birthday as this year’s saw a reduced parade in the grounds of Windsor Castle, rather than in central London, led by the Scots Guards while in 2020 the event was cancelled due to the pandemic with a ceremonial tribute performed at Windsor by Welsh Guardsman and a band of the Household Division.

By Doug Faulkner
BBC News

The Queen watching the parade
The national anthem was sung during the celebrations

The monarch’s actual birthday is on 21 April but her official birthday is marked on the second Saturday of June each year.

It is traditionally celebrated with a military parade near Buckingham Palace in which the Household Division marches carrying a regimental flag, known as a colour.

The Duke of Kent – the Queen’s cousin – was also present for the ceremony, which saw the F Company Scots Guards troop the colour of the 2nd Battalion Scots Guards through the ranks of guardsmen on parade.

The event at Windsor Castle replaces the ceremony normally staged in central London

PA Media: The Guardsmen showed their precision marching skills while maintaining a social distance of just over two metres

The celebration was smaller than normal and has been dubbed a “mini” Trooping the Colour.

But the military officer in charge of planning the parade said his aim was to create a “memorable and uplifting day” for the monarch, who has been based at Windsor during the pandemic.

Lt Col Guy Stone said: “Last year we had 85 on parade, this year we’ve got 274, plus 70 horses, so we’re really excited about the event having grown and getting us back to normal for next year we hope.

“It’s been very challenging, but we like a challenge. Covid has got a lot to answer for in so many ways, it’s made this difficult but what we want to do more than anything is give the Queen a memorable and uplifting day.”

PA MediaMembers of the public gathered in Windsor and saw the Red Arrows flypast overhead

Lt Col Stone, who serves with the Welsh Guards, is Brigade Major Household Division and was also in overall charge of the military arrangements for the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral.

It was the first time the Queen’s official birthday has been marked since the death of her husband earlier this year.

The event ended with a 41 gun salute and there will also be a flypast by the Red Arrows.

PA MediaThis year’s Trooping the Colour was on a smaller scale than normal, as shown in 2019’s paradeWhat is Trooping the Colour?

Official celebrations of a sovereign’s birthday have often been held on a day other than their actual birth date, particularly when the actual birthday has not been in the summer, so that there is better weather for a parade.

Meanwhile, heroes of the pandemic have been among those to be honoured in the Queen’s Birthday Honours, with vaccine developer Prof Sarah Gilbert and former chair of the vaccine taskforce Kate Bingham among those to be recognised.

On Friday the Queen and other members of the Royal Family were in Cornwall as part of the G7 summit of world leaders.

The monarch joined the politicians for a dinner at the Eden Project.

Scotland’s Papers: Soaring Covid cases and new care home rules as the i reports that Scotland has recorded its highest number of daily #Covid19 cases since February and points out infections among children are now the highest they have been since the outbreak started in early 2020.

scotsman
The Covid crisis is on the front page of a number papers with The Scotsman focusing on new guidance regarding masks in care homes. The paper says residents are being asked to wear masks in communal areas of care homes unless exempt, but the move has been criticised by some families.

The Scottish Daily Mail reports that emergency powers for tackling the Covid pandemic could be extended to the autumn of next year under plans drawn up by the Scottish government. The paper describes the laws as “draconian” and the extension would need to be agreed by MSPs.An administrative error that led to people queuing for hours to receive their Covid vaccines is the lead story in the Edinburgh Evening News.

The National leads with a High Court ruling that the UK government acted unlawfully when it awarded a £560,000 contract to a firm run by former colleagues of Michael Gove and the PM’s adviser Dominic Cummings. The paper reports how the judge said a failure to consider other firms could be seen as suggesting a “real danger” of bias.

Scotland’s opening game in the Euro 2020 football tournament makes the front page of The Daily Record. The paper highlights how a 2pm kick-off for the game against the Czech Republic on Monday means school children will miss out on the big match.

Sticking with the Euros and the Daily Star reports that fans heading to Wembley for Scotland’s match against England will pay more than £10 for a pie and a pint at the stadium.

The Herald reports that a Tory MP has backed proposals for the UK government, which runs schools in England, to root out “undue nationalist bias” in the teaching of British history in schools. The paper reports that Andrew Bowie said the idea could help “a Unionist fightback” against independence but critics said the idea was “ludicrous”.

The Times reports that US President Joe Biden ordered officials to issue Boris Johnson with a diplomatic rebuke – something rarely exchanged between allies – for “inflaming” tensions amid the row over part of the Brexit deal called the Northern Ireland protocol.

The Daily Telegraph reports that more than 150 lecturers at Oxford University are boycotting one of the university’s colleges and refusing to teach its students in protest at the decision to keep the statue of British imperialist Cecil Rhodes.

The Scottish Sun leads with criticism of Prince Harry from former Oasis frontman Noel Gallagher.

The Daily Express’ front page is also on the royals, following the headlines about whether Prince Harry and Meghan had spoken to the Queen before naming their newborn daughter Lilibet, her nickname since childhood.

The Glasgow Times leads with the story of a man admitting harassing SNP MP Carol Monaghan.

Dundee’s Evening Telegraph reports on the jailing of an engineering student who raped a woman after grabbing her off the street and dragging her into a block of flats.

Aberdeen’s Evening Express reports on the impact of dozens of Spar stores across Scotland which are to close their Post Office counters over the next six months. A total of four branches in Aberdeen are affected.

The Courier reports how a murder investigation is under way after a man was found dead at a flat in Perth. The body of Ian Menzies, 55, was discovered after emergency services were called to the property in Scott Street at about 20:50 on Monday.

The Press and Journal leads with tributes to a father-of-two who was killed in a motorcycle crash in Moray.

(SCOTLAND) Prehistoric Animal Carvings Report: Archaeologist discovers ‘Animal Carvings’ in tomb that is believed to be 4,000 – 5,000-year-old depictions and first of their kind #AceHistoryDesk

#AceHistoryReport – June.04: Depictions of red deer discovered inside a tomb in Scotland are the country’s first known prehistoric animal carvings, dating back some 4,000 to 5,000 years to the Neolithic or Early Bronze Age:

Amateur Archaeologist Discovers Prehistoric Animal Carvings in Scottish Tomb: The 4,000- to 5,000-year-old depictions of deer are the first of their kind found in Scotland

The carvings show the large antlers of adult male red deer. (Historic Environment Scotland)

As Tom Gillespie reports for Sky News, local man Hamish Fenton, who has a background in archaeology, chanced upon the carvings while looking inside a burial chamber at Dunchraigaig Cairn in Kilmartin Glen, a site on the western coast of Scotland that features numerous burial sites and monuments.

“I noticed a pattern on the underside of the roof slab which didn’t appear to be natural markings in the rock,” says Fenton in a statement from Historic Environment Scotland (HES), which has confirmed the artworks’ authenticity. “As I shone the light around further, I could see that I was looking at a deer stag upside down, and as I continued looking around, more animals appeared on the rock.”

Per the Guardian’s Severin Carrell, the carvings depict two male red deer with full antlers and several other animals believed to be young deer. Previously, all known prehistoric rock art in Scotland—as well as most examples found in the United Kingdom—consisted of abstract geometric markings. In particular, cup-and-ring marks are common in many sites across the U.K., including at Kilmartin Glen.

“While there are a few prehistoric carvings of deer in the U.K., the only other ones created in the Early Bronze Age are very schematic,” says archaeologist Tertia Barnett, principal investigator for Scotland’s Rock Art Project, in the statement. “It is remarkable that these carvings in Dunchraigaig Cairn show such great anatomical detail and there is no doubt about which animal species they represent.”https://www.youtube.com/embed/eR4s80-ggiw

BBC News notes that early communities in the area prized red deer for their meat and hides, as well as their bones and antlers, which prehistoric people used to make a variety of tools. As NPR’s Barbara J. King reported in 2017, animal images are the most common type of ancient rock art, showing up in more than 100 countries around the world. The oldest known example may be a painting of a pig found on a cave wall on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi; researchers estimate that the artwork dates to 45,500 years ago.

Barnett says Kilmartin Glen is now the only known site in Britain where ancient people carved both animal designs and cup-and-ring motifs. But the practice was common in other Neolithic and Bronze Age societies, including in Scandinavia and Iberia. Some scholars believe the cup-and-ring pattern references water, appearing like ripples created by raindrops hitting a lake. It’s unclear whether people living in different places invented the design independently or if it has a common origin.

The Kilmartin Glen area is also home to monuments known as the Nether Largie standing stones and Ballymeanoch stones, both of which were erected more than 3,000 years ago. Dunchraigaig Cairn, one of five burial cairns that form a cemetery, is about 100 feet across and contains three burial chambers. The chamber where the deer carvings are located held the remains of up to ten people, some of them cremated, as well as a whetstone, a greenstone ax and a flint knife. The grave was first excavated in the 1860s, but the carvings went unnoticed until now.

“To me, discoveries like this are the real treasure of archaeology, helping to reshape our understanding of the past,” Fenton says in the statement.

HES has closed the cairn to visitors while it continues to study the carvings and puts measures in place to protect them.

Jonathan Appleyard, hoofstock team leader at Edinburgh Zoo, said: “It is incredible to welcome giraffes back to Edinburgh Zoo.

“Our brand-new giraffe house has been designed with high level walkways which means visitors will be able to meet these wonderful creatures face-to-face, giving them an amazing opportunity to connect with nature and be inspired to join us in protecting them from extinction.” 

Up to three more male giraffes will be arriving at Edinburgh Zoo in the coming weeks.

Eve Massie, spokeswoman for animal protection charity One Kind, said: ”One Kind believes there’s no good reason to keep wild animals captive in zoos.

“It’s generally not possible to provide good welfare standards for wild animals in a captive environment so we are not supportive of the giraffes and the new enclosure at Edinburgh Zoo.”
