More computers are likely to be affected tomorrow by the cyber
attack that hit many parts of the NHS, as the working
week begins and people return to their desks.
The ransomware attack is now known to have had 200,000
victims around the world, with Europe's law enforcement agency
saying new versions are being released and an international
manhunt underway for those responsible.

the FBI and NSA are trying to find those responsible. Here Britain's
cyber security centre, part of GCHQ, says it has not seen a new wave of
attacks strike the UK since Friday, but when people turn on their
computers tomorrow, the fear is, we could see problems on a significant
scale because of malicious software which has already spread. What's
likely to happen tomorrow is that organisations that didn't know they
were affected on Friday, may find that out tomorrow and organisations
that were affected on Friday and over the weekend, might find so some
of the problems have spread. That's not to say that the attacks are new.
It's a repercussion of what happened on Friday. This is what the first

in the disruption were doing their best to get them up and running,
using paper where they had to. Questions are being asked about
whether NHS IT security was adequate. Some trusts are still
using an outdated and unprotecting operating system, Windows XP.
Ministers said there had been investment. We are spending around
?50 million on the NHS cyber systems ?50 million on the NHS cyber systems
to improve their security. We have encouraged the NHS Trusts to reduce
their exposure to the weakest system, the Windows XP. Only 5%,

Is there a new kind of politics emerging. The vote to leave the EU
cut across the political lives and elsewhere established parties are
facing challenges. In the first of a series on the changing face of UK
politics, are home editor has been to Liverpool and Sunderland to
examine the old left right divide. Sunderland used to be shipbuilder to
the world. A new vessel slipped into the water every nine days at one
time, but the globalisation that created this proud city is still
seen by many locals as a threat. They are selling us down the river.
I'm passionate about Sunderland. The welcome Tarver and would once have
been packed with merchants and sailors buying beer with the profits
of international trade but now custom comes from the struggling
neighbourhood just beyond its door. On the river, you would see nothing
but ships. Fishing boats, there was that many. Gone. Nothing. We have to
start thinking about ourselves more. This part of the country is being
left behind. Forgotten about. I am not a European, I never will be. I
want to be her proud Englishman. You have got to protect your identity.
You feel that is under threat by globalisation? Throughout the world,
we have seen the likes of Trump, and we have seen in France, there is a
movement that is moving away. Traditional politics is taking a
battering, from the viewers of the welcome end to Brexit, Trump, the
new French President, party allegiances are breaking down. It is
no longer about left or right, so much as globalism versus
nationalism. Many people in the city feel that Sunderland is losing its
foothold in the world. That its destiny is decided beyond reach. In
Westminster, Brussels or a boardroom in Yokohama. I feel as if everything
is much further away from us. The world is a bigger world, because of
the internet and all the modern technology. You had the shipbuilding
communities, there were all these big communities that would pull
together because everyone knew each other. The unions are huge thing but
now they are fragmented and they do not have the power. We have no
power. Like the people of Wearside, voters on Merseyside have backed
Labour for generations, but the outlook here is different. In this
part of Liverpool, they do not see globalisation as a threat, but an
opportunity. The huge cargo ships, busy loading and unloading at the
port are a reminder of the days when the city was richer than London.
Prosperity built on immigration and international trade was central to
Liverpool 's story. Unlike Labour, Sunderland were most people voted to
leave the EU, a majority in Liverpool voted to remain. Tell me
about this beer. It is not left-wing or right wing, it is about given the
people of voice. It has been categorised, it is read, it is blue,
it is yellow, it is purple, whatever now, but it is broken up now, there
are no categories any more. Liverpool is a defiant, resilient
city and from grassroots, as new pro-globalisation movement has
started to bubble up. We are all global people in the city. We are
all daughters of the city, daughters of immigrants, sons of immigrants. I
am proud of being British. I served by country in uniform. I do feel
that this is another world as well. There are different outlooks in
Liverpool and in Sunderland of course, but the political
undercurrents are shifting as a new politics starts to emerge.

Northern Ireland as well. In the north-west of England, Wales as
well, plenty of rain in the South West and Central and southern
England as well. This is eight o'clock in the morning and you can
see that it is not raining, not quite bringing in Kent and Sussex
and parts of Yorkshire, but and parts of Yorkshire, but
eventually, second-half of the morning into the afternoon, most of
the UK is involved with black cloud and it is going to be quite a
