Five NHS Trusts still have problems, after yesterday's international

:00:00.:00:09.

cyber attack, but the majority are back up and running.

:00:10.:00:14.

As ministers attend an emergency meeting in Downing Street,

:00:15.:00:17.

the Home Secretary insists the government was ready

:00:18.:00:19.

There's always more we can all do to make sure we are secure

:00:20.:00:25.

against virus, but I think there had already been good preparations

:00:26.:00:28.

in place to make sure they were ready for this

:00:29.:00:31.

Jeremy Corbyn denies senior figures in the Labour Party,

:00:32.:00:42.

are already accepting defeat in the General Election.

:00:43.:00:48.

And victory for Saracens, as they win the European Champions

:00:49.:00:50.

Five NHS trusts are still experiencing serious

:00:51.:01:17.

problems after yesterday's international cyber attack.

:01:18.:01:20.

43 of the trusts affected in England and Scotland,

:01:21.:01:22.

The attack on Friday caused ambulances to be diverted,

:01:23.:01:27.

and numerous cancellations or delays in treatment.

:01:28.:01:30.

The government's emergency committee COBRA has been meeting today,

:01:31.:01:36.

chaired by the Home Secretary Amber Rudd.

:01:37.:01:38.

It was news which shocked NHS staff and patients alike.

:01:39.:01:46.

A cyber attack which shut down some GP systems.

:01:47.:01:51.

A cyber attack which shut down some key systems.

:01:52.:01:53.

Ron Grimshaw won't forget it in a hurry.

:01:54.:01:55.

He was in the middle of having an MRI scan in hospital,

:01:56.:01:58.

but it was abruptly halted and he'll have to go back another day.

:01:59.:02:01.

As the nurse said, this is the very first time this has happened.

:02:02.:02:08.

The Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt was in a meeting of the government's

:02:09.:02:15.

emergency committee COBRA along with the Home Secretary,

:02:16.:02:17.

who denied there were weaknesses in NHS systems.

:02:18.:02:19.

I don't believe it's to do with our preparedness.

:02:20.:02:21.

There's always more we can all do to make sure we are secure

:02:22.:02:25.

against viruses, but I think there had already been good

:02:26.:02:29.

preparations in place by the NHS to make sure they were ready

:02:30.:02:32.

In England, services at 48 NHS trusts, about a fifth

:02:33.:02:42.

of the total have been affected, along with some GP surgeries.

:02:43.:02:47.

In Scotland, 11 out of 14 health boards have felt the impact,

:02:48.:02:50.

including hospitals and GP surgeries.

:02:51.:02:52.

The Scottish Ambulance Service was also affected.

:02:53.:02:55.

The NHS is now very much in the recovery phase,

:02:56.:02:58.

so there is a great deal of work on going to get systems

:02:59.:03:01.

Of course, every effort is being made to ensure any impact

:03:02.:03:05.

on patient care is kept to an absolute minimum.

:03:06.:03:09.

A small number of trusts, including Barts Health,

:03:10.:03:14.

which runs the Royal London hospital is said to be still needing help

:03:15.:03:17.

coping with the aftermath of the cyber attack.

:03:18.:03:19.

The emergency department is open, but some ambulances are being

:03:20.:03:21.

Getting the IT system up and running again is proving

:03:22.:03:25.

Others like York hospital said that while they've contains

:03:26.:03:34.

Others like York hospital said that while they've contained

:03:35.:03:36.

a virus, it could take a while to restore

:03:37.:03:38.

To get 2000 PCs back into commission will undoubtedly take a few days,

:03:39.:03:42.

but we will be working all round the clock to do

:03:43.:03:45.

At this hospital in Wigan, IT staff have been working

:03:46.:03:49.

throughout the day to try to get systems fully operational.

:03:50.:03:54.

I'm a little concerned because we don't know what will find

:03:55.:04:01.

what we will find on Monday morning when people come in and

:04:02.:04:04.

But I think we got sufficient understanding of the problem

:04:05.:04:07.

and we can be very confident we can solve whatever does

:04:08.:04:10.

Most of the English trusts hit by the attack have said to have

:04:11.:04:14.

Emergency care is being provided across the NHS,

:04:15.:04:17.

but there could still be more cancellations of routine surgery

:04:18.:04:20.

In all, 99 countries across the world were affected

:04:21.:04:28.

by the cyber attack, which the EU's serious

:04:29.:04:31.

crime agency Europol, described as unprecedented.

:04:32.:04:34.

Here, investigators have promised to do everything they can,

:04:35.:04:37.

to catch those responsible, as our Home Affairs Correspondent

:04:38.:04:39.

The cyber attack which wreaked such chaos in Britain's health service

:04:40.:04:48.

Affecting Russia worst of all, but also countries as far apart

:04:49.:04:53.

This evening, the two British agencies tackling it said a complex,

:04:54.:05:01.

international investigation would be needed to catch the culprits.

:05:02.:05:05.

We haven't identified the offenders, at this moment in time.

:05:06.:05:08.

But we are deploying all covert and overt means available to us.

:05:09.:05:12.

We have a number of lines of enquiry.

:05:13.:05:14.

It's really important we pursue those quickly so we can reassure

:05:15.:05:17.

the public we are taking this very seriously.

:05:18.:05:20.

At the heart of this global cyber attack was a software worm

:05:21.:05:23.

which spreads itself from computer to computer using code

:05:24.:05:27.

originally designed by a US government spy agency.

:05:28.:05:31.

It's called Wannacrypt and it simply encrypts all the files

:05:32.:05:35.

on the infected computer and then demand a ransom.

:05:36.:05:40.

on the infected computer and then demands a ransom.

:05:41.:05:43.

By last night, at least 75,000 computers had been infected

:05:44.:05:45.

At that point, a cyber security expert managed almost by chance

:05:46.:05:52.

But all the data on the infected computers is still unusable

:05:53.:05:56.

Any modern computer that had had its software

:05:57.:06:01.

But some NHS trusts use old operating systems that

:06:02.:06:06.

Others may have simply failed to take a security update in March.

:06:07.:06:12.

Today, the national cyber Security Centre

:06:13.:06:15.

The first one is to make sure your security software

:06:16.:06:21.

The second is to employ proper, good antivirus software

:06:22.:06:31.

and the third and the most important for ransomware protection

:06:32.:06:34.

is back-up your data, because you can't be held to ransom

:06:35.:06:36.

It's been a reminder of how vulnerable vital organisations

:06:37.:06:47.

like health services are to attack by organised criminals seeking

:06:48.:06:50.

to raise money or by hostile states and terrorist groups trying

:06:51.:06:52.

The reality is, there are thousands of vulnerabilities

:06:53.:06:55.

across all the different software applications that companies

:06:56.:06:57.

So for example, if we were to look at a company of 50,000 computers,

:06:58.:07:02.

we might find hundreds and thousands of open Bumrah abilities

:07:03.:07:10.

we might find hundreds and thousands of open vulnerabilities

:07:11.:07:13.

It's also a reminder that computers are not of one-off investment.

:07:14.:07:16.

Jeremy Corbyn has denied, that some at the top

:07:17.:07:21.

of the Labour Party, are already accepting defeat

:07:22.:07:23.

It follows comments from his deputy Tom Watson,

:07:24.:07:26.

that the Conservatives could be heading for a landslide victory.

:07:27.:07:29.

Mr Corbyn said both he and Mr Watson were "working flat out" to get

:07:30.:07:32.

Meanwhile, the former Labour Prime Minister, Gordon Brown,

:07:33.:07:38.

urged voters not to give Theresa May "a blank cheque,"

:07:39.:07:41.

Our political correspondent Ian Watson reports.

:07:42.:07:45.

A former Prime Minister and a former Deputy Prime Minister enter

:07:46.:07:51.

the fray to claim the Conservatives are waging a war on the poor.

:07:52.:07:54.

You'd assume Gordon Brown might say the next Labour

:07:55.:07:56.

In fact, his message was, don't give Theresa May too much power.

:07:57.:08:03.

Mrs May's Britain will have more poverty and inequality

:08:04.:08:06.

than even the property we saw in the Thatcher/Major years.

:08:07.:08:09.

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

:08:10.:08:15.

The party's deputy leader Tom Watson insisted he was determined to turn

:08:16.:08:25.

round Labour's position in the polls, but also

:08:26.:08:27.

He said, if we get to June the 8th and Theresa May still commands

:08:28.:08:33.

a lead in the polls they had at the start of the election,

:08:34.:08:36.

she'll command a Margaret Thatcher style majority.

:08:37.:08:38.

As Labour MPs battle to get back here to Westminster,

:08:39.:08:43.

we are now seeing, if you like, a tale of two campaigns.

:08:44.:08:46.

The official one, emphasising what Labour would do in government

:08:47.:08:49.

and an unofficial one, where some candidates

:08:50.:08:50.

are telling me they are going beyond what Gordon Brown

:08:51.:08:53.

and Tom Watson are saying, telling voters on the doorstep,

:08:54.:08:55.

they are simply campaigning to become a stronger position.

:08:56.:08:58.

And in some local leaflets like this, there's no

:08:59.:09:00.

Instead, the whole emphasis was on reining in Theresa May.

:09:01.:09:08.

Jeremy Corbyn wanted to keep his focus on the election issues.

:09:09.:09:10.

He said he was working flat out for victory and rejected suggestions

:09:11.:09:17.

that any of his colleagues were throwing in the towel.

:09:18.:09:21.

Is it that senior Labour figures now are already admitting defeat?

:09:22.:09:24.

I am out round the whole country, the party is out right

:09:25.:09:30.

round the whole country putting out a message, we are a party

:09:31.:09:32.

We will invest in our NHS, our education system.

:09:33.:09:36.

We will protect our pensions and pensioners and we will ensure

:09:37.:09:39.

there is an expanding economy that works for all.

:09:40.:09:43.

So Jeremy Corbyn doesn't think he needs to shore up his support,

:09:44.:09:47.

but he and his deputy leader both agreed the party faces a huge

:09:48.:09:51.

challenge to turn the political tide before June the 8th.

:09:52.:09:53.

The Liberal Democrats say their election manifesto

:09:54.:10:00.

will include proposals to build 300,000 new homes a year,

:10:01.:10:02.

The leader Tim Farron, also says developers who stockpile land

:10:03.:10:09.

without building on it, would be penalised.

:10:10.:10:12.

And Theresa May's been campaigning in Northern Ireland today.

:10:13.:10:15.

She called on politicians there to work together

:10:16.:10:17.

Controversy over a botched renewable energy scheme,

:10:18.:10:22.

led to the collapse of the Stormont executive in January.

:10:23.:10:27.

North Korea's reported to have launched another missile,

:10:28.:10:30.

In recent months the state has tried, and failed,

:10:31.:10:35.

to successfully launch other ballistic missiles.

:10:36.:10:38.

This time though, the missile is said to have flown some 400 miles.

:10:39.:10:42.

Japan's condemned the launch as a violation of UN resolutions.

:10:43.:10:52.

More than 800 children and teenagers who'd lost a parent

:10:53.:10:54.

while serving in the Armed Forces, have attended a garden party

:10:55.:10:57.

They were welcomed by the Duke and Duchess

:10:58.:11:00.

Among them was the widow and son of the Fusilier Lee Rigby,

:11:01.:11:04.

who was murdered in a terror attack in 2013.

:11:05.:11:06.

Our Royal Correspondent Nicholas Witchell reports.

:11:07.:11:08.

It's a very large garden accustomed to formal events

:11:09.:11:10.

like garden parties, but it's the perfect place too

:11:11.:11:14.

for a children's party, which is exactly what was happening

:11:15.:11:17.

800 children had been invited to the Palace by the Duke

:11:18.:11:28.

and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry for

:11:29.:11:30.

Each of these children has lost a parent serving

:11:31.:11:33.

One of them was Jack Rigby, the six-year-old son

:11:34.:11:38.

of Fusilier Lee Rigby, murdered by extremists

:11:39.:11:41.

It's a chance for the parents to meet each other and to know that

:11:42.:11:51.

you're in a safe environment, you can ask advice off the other

:11:52.:11:57.

parents, they've been through similar things

:11:58.:12:01.

and at different points had to go through the same things you have,

:12:02.:12:04.

the questions, the explanations of what has happened.

:12:05.:12:12.

It is a fantastic opportunity for the parent and the children.

:12:13.:12:17.

They met Prince Harry, who was demonstrating plate spinning.

:12:18.:12:19.

The Royals joined in, posing for pictures and entertaining

:12:20.:12:22.

the crowd, all of it with a serious message.

:12:23.:12:26.

We, as a family, we as a nation, and we up and down the country,

:12:27.:12:30.

will never ever forget about the sacrifices every single

:12:31.:12:33.

What this event does, is bring together three

:12:34.:12:38.

of the issues in which William, Kate and Harry take

:12:39.:12:41.

Young people, the Armed Forces and bereavement.

:12:42.:12:45.

And for a few hours, in the grounds of Buckingham Palace,

:12:46.:12:48.

those wider cares could be put to one side.

:12:49.:12:52.

Nicholas Witchell, BBC News, at Buckingham Palace.

:12:53.:12:57.

With all the sport, here's Katherine Downes

:12:58.:12:59.

An historic night for Saracens, they're European Champions

:13:00.:13:07.

for a second successive year, beating French side Clermont

:13:08.:13:09.

Patrick Gearey was watching at Murrayfield.

:13:10.:13:22.

Edinburgh, city of performing arts. And the stage for a team that has

:13:23.:13:29.

made performing its art. Saracens, European champions last year, back

:13:30.:13:34.

to defend their title. Wherever Saracens go, their fans expect the

:13:35.:13:39.

best. They are 17 games unbeaten in this competition, one much from the

:13:40.:13:44.

record, one match from greatness. That status is earned on occasions

:13:45.:13:48.

like this when the best drown out the surround sound. Chris Ashton

:13:49.:13:55.

went down the runway. That made him the European cup's top try scorer.

:13:56.:14:01.

Saracens were rampant and another try was coming. George Kruis was

:14:02.:14:10.

forceful. Deja vu for those in blue. Clermont have lost 13 major finals,

:14:11.:14:15.

but they had hoped. Saracens edged further ahead but Clermont were on

:14:16.:14:22.

to something. They sent roars echoing into the middle of France.

:14:23.:14:28.

One point in it. Alex Goode saw a chance, the man who created the

:14:29.:14:32.

first try, scored the decisive one. Owen Farrell's mastery of John

:14:33.:14:37.

Matri, improve the arithmetic. Job done, trophy one.

:14:38.:14:41.

Swansea took a huge step towards Premier League survival,

:14:42.:14:43.

Man of the Match Fernando Llorente and Kyle Naughton sealed a run

:14:44.:14:52.

If results go their way tomorrow, they'll secure their Premier League

:14:53.:14:57.

And in the day's other Premier League fixtures,

:14:58.:15:00.

Manchester City moved up to third, beating Leicester 2-1 -

:15:01.:15:02.

Leicester had a penalty controversially disallowed.

:15:03.:15:05.

And Arsenal continued their charge towards the Champions League places,

:15:06.:15:08.

In the Scottish Premiership, Rangers secured a third place finish -

:15:09.:15:14.

Barrie Mcaye scored the second half winner.

:15:15.:15:23.

Elsewhere Motherwell's win over Hamilton means they swap

:15:24.:15:25.

positions in the table, leaving Hamilton in

:15:26.:15:27.

Manchester City's women have completed a domestic treble.

:15:28.:15:30.

Jill Scott scored the last of their goals as they beat

:15:31.:15:33.

Birmingham City Ladies 4-1 in front of a record crowd at Wembley,

:15:34.:15:37.

to add the FA Cup to their league and Continental Cup titles.

:15:38.:15:40.

Lewis Hamilton secured pole for tomorrow's Spanish Grand Prix

:15:41.:15:43.

He was less than a tenth of a second faster than Sebastian Vettel -

:15:44.:15:49.

after the German made a mistake on the final corner.

:15:50.:15:51.

Hamilton's Mercedes team-mate Valterri Bottas is in third.

:15:52.:15:54.

And double Olympic boxing champion Nicola Adams has

:15:55.:15:56.

years, Adams stopped Mexico's Maryan Salazar

:15:57.:16:06.

And finally, in case you stayed up this late and somehow missed it.

:16:07.:16:23.

The winner of this year's Eurovision Song Contest was Portugal.

:16:24.:16:27.

Other highlights from the 62nd competition, held in Kiev,

:16:28.:16:29.

included this dancing gorilla from Italy!

:16:30.:16:39.

As for Britain, Lucie Jones' ballard 'Never Give Up On You' scored 111

:16:40.:16:42.

You can see more on all of today's stories on the BBC News Channel.

:16:43.:16:54.

But from me and the team, have a very good night.

:16:55.:17:06.

Good evening. If you're hoping for a bit of rain, many of

:17:07.:17:08.
