Five NHS trusts have yet to return to normal

:00:24.:00:29.

following an international cyber attack on Friday, which caused

:00:30.:00:37.

Ambulances have been diverted, and patients to have treatment

:00:38.:00:48.

Speaking after an emergency meeting of the government's COBRA committee,

:00:49.:00:51.

Home Secretary Amber Rudd said 48, or a fifth of all trusts,

:00:52.:00:54.

were affected - but that the vast majority were now

:00:55.:00:56.

The cyber attack hit hospitals in Scotland as well.

:00:57.:00:59.

This report from our Health Editor Hugh Pym.

:01:00.:01:01.

The news shocked staff and patient alike. The cyber attack shut down

:01:02.:01:04.

key systems. Ron Grimshaw won't forget it in a hurry. He was in the

:01:05.:01:07.

middle of having an MMI scan but it was abruptly halted and he will have

:01:08.:01:13.

to go back. I was stunned, obviously stunned, and the nurse said this is

:01:14.:01:17.

the first time this has happened. I was thinking, why me? There we are.

:01:18.:01:25.

Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt was at a meeting of the emergency committee

:01:26.:01:29.

along with the Home Secretary, who denied there were weaknesses in NHS

:01:30.:01:34.

systems. I don't believe it is to do with being prepared. There is always

:01:35.:01:38.

more we can all do to make sure we are secure against viruses but I

:01:39.:01:43.

think there had already been good preparation in place by the NHS to

:01:44.:01:46.

make sure that they were ready for this sort of attack. In England,

:01:47.:01:53.

hospital and Ambulance Services have been affected at 48 trusts along

:01:54.:01:59.

with GP practices. In Scotland 11 out of 14 health boards have felt

:02:00.:02:02.

the impact including health boards and GP surgeries. The Ambulance

:02:03.:02:08.

Service was also affected. The NHS is very much in the recovery phase.

:02:09.:02:12.

There is a great deal of work on going to get systems back to normal

:02:13.:02:17.

and every effort is being made to ensure any impact on patient care is

:02:18.:02:25.

kept to a minimum. AMD is working normally. They say while they

:02:26.:02:28.

contained the virus it could take a while before they restorer nonurgent

:02:29.:02:36.

services. 2000 have been taken out of commission. Each one will need

:02:37.:02:43.

reimaging. That takes time. It will take a few days but we will be

:02:44.:02:48.

working round-the-clock to do that as fast as we can. Staff have been

:02:49.:02:56.

working flat out to get systems up and running normally. I'm concerned

:02:57.:03:02.

because we don't know what we will find on Monday morning. I think

:03:03.:03:07.

we've got sufficient understanding of the nature of the problem that we

:03:08.:03:11.

can be very confident we can solve whatever comes up on Monday morning.

:03:12.:03:15.

All but five of the English trusts have restored their networks. There

:03:16.:03:22.

could be more cancellations of routine surgery and appointment next

:03:23.:03:23.

week. Well in the last half hour

:03:24.:03:25.

the National Crime Agency has said it will do everything in its power

:03:26.:03:28.

to catch those behind Our Home Affairs Correspondent

:03:29.:03:31.

Daniel Sandford joins me. What more have they been saying? The

:03:32.:03:40.

head of the crime agency was standing shoulder to shoulder with

:03:41.:03:44.

the leader of the national cyber Security Centre and said they did

:03:45.:03:49.

not believe the NHS had been specifically targeted but it was the

:03:50.:03:54.

main organisation affected. She said their absolute focus was to catch

:03:55.:03:56.

the criminals who did this but at this stage they don't know if it was

:03:57.:04:02.

a sophisticated criminal gang or a collection of hackers. We haven't

:04:03.:04:06.

identified the offenders at this moment in time but we are deploying

:04:07.:04:11.

all means available to us and we have a number of lines of enquiry.

:04:12.:04:15.

It is really important we pursue those quickly so we can reassure the

:04:16.:04:17.

public we are taking this very seriously. She had one specific

Ian Watson reports. The Conservatives are waging a war

:05:06.:05:10.

You might expect it to say that the next Labour government. It but his

:05:11.:05:14.

emphasis is on holding Theresa May to account. Her Brittan will have

more inequality and poverty than what we saw in the Thatcher years.

:05:22.:05:27.

No Conservative Prime Minister should ever be given a free hand.

:05:28.:05:31.

The deputy leader Tom Watson insisted he was determined to turn

:05:32.:05:35.

round Labour's position in the polls but warned of the dangers of a big

:05:36.:05:41.

As Labour MPs battle to get back to Westminster we are seeing a tale of

two campaigns. The official one emphasising what they would do in

government and the unofficial one where some candidates tell me they

:06:00.:06:03.

are going beyond what Gordon Brown and Tom Watson are saying. They are

:06:04.:06:09.

telling voters they simply are campaigning to become a strong

opposition. In some local leaflets there is no mention of Jeremy

:06:13.:06:18.

focus on the election issues. He said he was working flat out for

victory and he did not recognise talk of defeat. Not at all. I'm out

round the whole country putting out a message. We are a party to the

will protect our pensions and pensioners and we will ensure there

is an expanding economy that works for all. Jeremy Corbyn doesn't think

:06:50.:06:54.

he needs to shore up his support but he and his deputy reader both agree

the party faces a huge challenge to turn the political tide before June

Nicholas Witchell reports. It's a very large garden accustomed
