A warning that the cyber attack that hit the NHS on Friday is escalating.
After dozens of hospital trusts and GP surgeries were affected,
the head of Europol says a new version of the ransomware
We've never seen anything like this, unprecedented on this scale.
The latest numbers we're seeing, over 200,000 victims
We'll be looking at the likely disruption as the working week
begins and the political row over who's to blame.
Emmanuel Macron is sworn in as France's new president,
And misery for Hull City as they're relegated from the Premier League.
The head of the European Union's law enforcement agency says the cyber
attack that hit the NHS on Friday is escalating and could affect many
more people as computers are turned on tomorrow morning.
Europol's Rob Wainwright described the global attack
Seven NHS trusts remain affected and officials are warning patients
about further disruption in coming days.
It was the biggest ever attack on health service IT systems. Today,
staff at those hospitals caught up in the disruption were doing their
best to get up and running. But the NHS was one victim of a global cyber
assault and Europe's police agency says the scale of the problem is
unprecedented and it could get worse. This will be sitting in
systems over the weekend in systems not been used and when people arrive
for work on Monday morning and turn on their computer, we will see the
numbers going up again. But questions are being asked about
whether NHS IT security was adequate. Some trusts are still
using an outdated operating system, Windows XP. Ministers said there had
been investment. We are spending around ?50 million on the NHS cyber
systems to improve security. We have encouraged the NHS Trust to reduce
their exposure to the weakest since them, Windows XP. Less than 5% of
the trust use that system any more. York hospital's computers were
affected but they were not using the old system and they were using
security patches to protect against viruses. We are applying patches
provided by our providers. We are in a large system and we take our
responsibilities seriously. Labour has written to the Health Secretary
calling for a detailed explanation and today the party went on the
attack. The government's handling of this crisis has been chaotic. We
have warned the government's attitude to cyber security in the
NHS was complacent. They have got the infrastructure budget so the NHS
could not put the money it needed into securing its IT systems. I am
afraid the chickens are coming home to roost. Labour says if elected, it
will invest billions of pounds in the NHS to upgrade IT systems and
modernise hospitals and other buildings. England's largest NHS
Trust which includes the Royal London hospital was one of those
hardest hit. The IT systems are still not running normally. Managers
say a certain number of appointments and routine operations will go ahead
tomorrow. But some ambulances are still being diverted. For this
hospital and a few others, this unprecedented disruption is not over
yet. Hugh Pym, BBC News. With me is Gordon Corera our
security correspondent. How worried should we be about how
this is likely to develop? It is not clear whether we are through the
worst of it. I think there will be a lot of people taking a deep breath
when they switch on their computer tomorrow. What happened on Friday
was a dangerous piece of malicious software. It didn't just target the
UK and it didn't just target the NHS, but it only worked on systems
which run a particular operating system and hadn't been upgraded. In
the UK, that happens to be the case with a number of NHS trusts. That is
why only one in five were affected, because the others had upgraded.
Some other computer systems may also have been affected. Officials I have
spoken to suggest they haven't seen a significant new attack at the
moment. They have not seen a new wave or a new variant. What concerns
them is there could be a number of machines out there which have been
affected with this dangerous piece of software and where it hasn't
appeared yet on their systems because they haven't switched it on
since Friday. So there is a risk on Monday it could affect their systems
and that could be a significant number. But nobody is sure how many
that will be. That be why are a lot of people will be taking a deep
breath. Nicola Sturgeon has admitted

a specialist unit to clamp Emmanuel Macron has been sworn
in as President of France, promising in his inaugural address
to bring about a cultural and economic renaissance
and rejuvenate the country. The 39-year-old former investment
banker swept to power after forming Our Europe Correspondent
Damian Grammaticas watched Not since France had an emperor 200
years ago, as it had a leader this young. 39 years old and inaugurated
president today of one of the world's most powerful nations.
Emmanuel Macron has seized his opportunity, propelled by a young
man's self-confidence and some political good fortune. The
disillusion that has fuelled populism elsewhere, has led France
to back a newcomer, but one squarely in the centre ground. Emmanuel
Macron routed the traditional parties. The outgoing president,
Francois Hollande, leaves office as France's most unpopular leader of
modern times. But the task in front of Mr Macron is huge. If this
business friendly liberal is to honour his pledge to transform
France. TRANSLATION: All labour laws will be
liberalised, companies will be supported. Innovation and creativity
will be at the heart of my programme. The French feel left
behind by globalisation and will be better protected.
To achieve that, Mr Macron needs a majority in parliament, but his new
party has no MPs and elections are in four weeks' time. Emmanuel Macron
has promised this moment will mark a decisive break from the past for
France, a moment of national renewal where all his predecessors have
promised reform and failed to deliver. He will need more than
useful to optimism and energy to succeed. What Mr Macron hopes he can
make it a force at the heart of the EU, say those who know him.
TRANSLATION: He will relaunch the EU. If the British were still
members, they would be part of this, but we will do this without them. It
is on the basis that countries who want to cooperate further, Will. For
France and Europe, much rests on some very young shoulders.

Landing the catch in West Cornwall, an area where the Liberal Democrats
A blue tide of Conservatives swept them away at the last election,
but since then, the Brexit vote has transformed the political landscape.
So how is the Lib Dem's pro-EU message going down with fishermen
The Liberal Democrats used to be really big in Cornwall,
In my opinion, that's not really a very good go is it?

as well, because I really think down here, we have major,
major problems with the NHS, education, housing and jobs.
People think, they weren't happy that we went in with
