A warning that the cyber attack that hit the NHS on Friday is escalating.

:00:08.:00:10.

After dozens of hospital trusts and GP surgeries were affected,

:00:11.:00:13.

the head of Europol says a new version of the ransomware

:00:14.:00:16.

We've never seen anything like this, unprecedented on this scale.

:00:17.:00:22.

The latest numbers we're seeing, over 200,000 victims

:00:23.:00:24.

We'll be looking at the likely disruption as the working week

:00:25.:00:37.

begins and the political row over who's to blame.

:00:38.:00:39.

Emmanuel Macron is sworn in as France's new president,

:00:40.:00:47.

And misery for Hull City as they're relegated from the Premier League.

:00:48.:01:14.

The head of the European Union's law enforcement agency says the cyber

:01:15.:01:18.

attack that hit the NHS on Friday is escalating and could affect many

:01:19.:01:24.

more people as computers are turned on tomorrow morning.

:01:25.:01:27.

Europol's Rob Wainwright described the global attack

:01:28.:01:29.

Seven NHS trusts remain affected and officials are warning patients

:01:30.:01:39.

about further disruption in coming days.

:01:40.:01:41.

It was the biggest ever attack on health service IT systems. Today,

:01:42.:01:59.

staff at those hospitals caught up in the disruption were doing their

:02:00.:02:04.

best to get up and running. But the NHS was one victim of a global cyber

:02:05.:02:09.

assault and Europe's police agency says the scale of the problem is

:02:10.:02:12.

unprecedented and it could get worse. This will be sitting in

:02:13.:02:18.

systems over the weekend in systems not been used and when people arrive

:02:19.:02:21.

for work on Monday morning and turn on their computer, we will see the

:02:22.:02:25.

numbers going up again. But questions are being asked about

:02:26.:02:28.

whether NHS IT security was adequate. Some trusts are still

:02:29.:02:35.

using an outdated operating system, Windows XP. Ministers said there had

:02:36.:02:41.

been investment. We are spending around ?50 million on the NHS cyber

:02:42.:02:46.

systems to improve security. We have encouraged the NHS Trust to reduce

:02:47.:02:51.

their exposure to the weakest since them, Windows XP. Less than 5% of

:02:52.:02:56.

the trust use that system any more. York hospital's computers were

:02:57.:03:03.

affected but they were not using the old system and they were using

:03:04.:03:07.

security patches to protect against viruses. We are applying patches

:03:08.:03:16.

provided by our providers. We are in a large system and we take our

:03:17.:03:20.

responsibilities seriously. Labour has written to the Health Secretary

:03:21.:03:25.

calling for a detailed explanation and today the party went on the

:03:26.:03:29.

attack. The government's handling of this crisis has been chaotic. We

:03:30.:03:34.

have warned the government's attitude to cyber security in the

:03:35.:03:38.

NHS was complacent. They have got the infrastructure budget so the NHS

:03:39.:03:42.

could not put the money it needed into securing its IT systems. I am

:03:43.:03:47.

afraid the chickens are coming home to roost. Labour says if elected, it

:03:48.:03:52.

will invest billions of pounds in the NHS to upgrade IT systems and

:03:53.:03:57.

modernise hospitals and other buildings. England's largest NHS

:03:58.:04:02.

Trust which includes the Royal London hospital was one of those

:04:03.:04:06.

hardest hit. The IT systems are still not running normally. Managers

:04:07.:04:10.

say a certain number of appointments and routine operations will go ahead

:04:11.:04:16.

tomorrow. But some ambulances are still being diverted. For this

:04:17.:04:20.

hospital and a few others, this unprecedented disruption is not over

:04:21.:04:22.

yet. Hugh Pym, BBC News. With me is Gordon Corera our

:04:23.:04:24.

security correspondent. How worried should we be about how

:04:25.:04:33.

this is likely to develop? It is not clear whether we are through the

:04:34.:04:37.

worst of it. I think there will be a lot of people taking a deep breath

:04:38.:04:41.

when they switch on their computer tomorrow. What happened on Friday

:04:42.:04:45.

was a dangerous piece of malicious software. It didn't just target the

:04:46.:04:50.

UK and it didn't just target the NHS, but it only worked on systems

:04:51.:04:54.

which run a particular operating system and hadn't been upgraded. In

:04:55.:05:03.

the UK, that happens to be the case with a number of NHS trusts. That is

:05:04.:05:06.

why only one in five were affected, because the others had upgraded.

:05:07.:05:09.

Some other computer systems may also have been affected. Officials I have

:05:10.:05:13.

spoken to suggest they haven't seen a significant new attack at the

:05:14.:05:16.

moment. They have not seen a new wave or a new variant. What concerns

:05:17.:05:22.

them is there could be a number of machines out there which have been

:05:23.:05:25.

affected with this dangerous piece of software and where it hasn't

:05:26.:05:29.

appeared yet on their systems because they haven't switched it on

:05:30.:05:33.

since Friday. So there is a risk on Monday it could affect their systems

:05:34.:05:37.

and that could be a significant number. But nobody is sure how many

:05:38.:05:41.

that will be. That be why are a lot of people will be taking a deep

:05:42.:05:43.

breath. Nicola Sturgeon has admitted

:05:47.:05:50.

than half of 13 and 14-year-old pupils were performing

well in writing. Nicola Sturgeon told

:05:56.:05:59.

the Andrew Marr Show that action is being taken

:06:00.:06:01.

to address the issues. We have identified a particular

issue with literacy and numeracy and we're also determined

:06:47.:06:52.

in as President of France, promising in his inaugural address

:06:53.:06:59.

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

:07:06.:07:07.

Damian Grammaticas watched Not since France had an emperor 200

:07:08.:07:30.

years ago, as it had a leader this young. 39 years old and inaugurated

:07:31.:07:39.

president today of one of the world's most powerful nations.

:07:40.:07:42.

Emmanuel Macron has seized his opportunity, propelled by a young

:07:43.:07:48.

man's self-confidence and some political good fortune. The

:07:49.:07:57.

disillusion that has fuelled populism elsewhere, has led France

:07:58.:08:02.

to back a newcomer, but one squarely in the centre ground. Emmanuel

:08:03.:08:07.

Macron routed the traditional parties. The outgoing president,

:08:08.:08:11.

Francois Hollande, leaves office as France's most unpopular leader of

:08:12.:08:17.

modern times. But the task in front of Mr Macron is huge. If this

business friendly liberal is to honour his pledge to transform

:08:22.:08:24.

France. TRANSLATION: All labour laws will be

:08:25.:08:27.

liberalised, companies will be supported. Innovation and creativity

:08:28.:08:33.

will be at the heart of my programme. The French feel left

:08:34.:08:38.

behind by globalisation and will be better protected.

:08:39.:08:42.

To achieve that, Mr Macron needs a majority in parliament, but his new

:08:43.:08:48.

party has no MPs and elections are in four weeks' time. Emmanuel Macron

:08:49.:08:52.

has promised this moment will mark a decisive break from the past for

:08:53.:08:57.

France, a moment of national renewal where all his predecessors have

:08:58.:09:00.

promised reform and failed to deliver. He will need more than

:09:01.:09:07.

useful to optimism and energy to succeed. What Mr Macron hopes he can

:09:08.:09:14.

make it a force at the heart of the EU, say those who know him.

:09:15.:09:21.

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.

A teenager has been killed and two others injured

in a knife attack in London - the latest in a spate

:09:44.:09:46.

An 18-year-old died of stab wounds following reports

:09:47.:09:49.

A 19-year-old and a 17-year-old, who were injured, are both

Nurses are to hold a series of protests this summer over pay.

:09:55.:09:58.

The Royal College of Nursing is calling for an end to years

:09:59.:10:01.

of below-inflation wage increases, and it's threatening

:10:02.:10:02.

balloting for strike action unless the government

:10:03.:10:05.

Back to the General Election, and the South-West of England was,

:10:06.:10:14.

for many years, a stronghold for the Liberal Democrats.

:10:15.:10:16.

But in 2015, they lost every one of their seats there,

:10:17.:10:18.

Then, last year, the West Country voted very decisively for Leave,

:10:19.:10:22.

Our political correspondent Vicki Young has been to Penzance

:10:23.:10:27.

to talk to people about how they intend to vote next month.

:10:28.:10:34.

Landing the catch in West Cornwall, an area where the Liberal Democrats

:10:35.:10:37.

A blue tide of Conservatives swept them away at the last election,

:10:38.:10:46.

but since then, the Brexit vote has transformed the political landscape.

:10:47.:10:48.

So how is the Lib Dem's pro-EU message going down with fishermen

:10:49.:10:51.

The Liberal Democrats used to be really big in Cornwall,

:10:52.:11:00.

In my opinion, that's not really a very good go is it?

:11:01.:11:10.

We are coming out and people are saying we want an easy deal,

:11:11.:11:13.

It needs to be Brexit for us, I can't speak for everyone,

:11:14.:11:17.

but for us, that's what it needs to be really.

:11:18.:11:20.

Conservative I'm going to be voting for.

:11:21.:11:21.

Because I don't like Labour, basically.

:11:22.:11:24.

It's between the two of them, isn't it?

:11:25.:11:26.

Theresa May has made a smart move to force the hand

:11:27.:11:28.

for the Brexit negotiations, but as a fishing community,

:11:29.:11:31.

The Lib Dem leader, Tim Farron, is working this patch hard.

:11:32.:11:38.

His supporters, confident they are tapping into discontent

:11:39.:11:41.

over Brexit but some worry that won't be enough.

:11:42.:11:49.

There is a strong revive in the south-west and when you talk

:11:50.:11:52.

to people out on the streets, you can feel it.

:11:53.:11:55.

And you've got to keep away, to a degree, from the Brexit issues

:11:56.:11:58.

as well, because I really think down here, we have major,

:11:59.:12:00.

major problems with the NHS, education, housing and jobs.

:12:01.:12:03.

People think, they weren't happy that we went in with

:12:04.:12:05.

But I think they are now returning greatly to us and we'll carry on.

:12:06.:12:14.

If Theresa May is to achieve her aim of a decisive election victory,

:12:15.:12:17.

she'll have to hold onto the dozens of seats the Conservatives won

:12:18.:12:20.

And that means fighting off any suggestion of

:12:21.:12:24.

The Tories think Brexit could be their winning card.

:12:25.:12:31.

In many Cornish seats, Ukip performed strongly two years ago,

:12:32.:12:36.

but recent local elections show them on the slide and the Tories

:12:37.:12:39.

are ready and waiting to plunder their votes.

:12:40.:12:41.

Last time I voted for Ukip because I wanted out

:12:42.:12:44.

So, I think the Conservatives will take us through.

:12:45.:12:51.

How do you think Ukip will do in the south-west now?

:12:52.:12:54.

Their main thing was to get us out of the European Union

:12:55.:12:57.

So, their job is done really, I think.

:12:58.:13:01.

Very strong woman, very strong woman.

:13:02.:13:05.

He's going to be looking out for my interests.

:13:06.:13:13.

Labour's always struggled to convert votes into seats in this region

:13:14.:13:16.

and in most constituencies, it's a long way back

:13:17.:13:18.

No wonder, privately, Conservatives are sounding confident

:13:19.:13:22.

Football now, and Hull City have relegated from the Premier League.

:13:23.:13:31.

They were beaten 4-0 by Crystal Palace, who themselves

:13:32.:13:34.

Every club strives to be in the Premier League,

:13:35.:13:43.

no one wants to leave it, the threat of relegation

:13:44.:13:46.

And when Hull City conceded after just two minutes,

:13:47.:13:50.

it seemed their fears would be realised.

Nobody has let in more headed goals than Hull this season,

:14:04.:14:07.

Christian Benteke the latest to benefit.

:14:08.:14:10.

Both of these teams have improved since appointing

:14:11.:14:12.

new managers, yet on the day, that was where the

:14:13.:14:14.

Milivojevic made it three from the spot.

:14:15.:14:21.

Patrick van Aanholt completed the rout,

:14:22.:14:24.

Palace required only a point to guarantee their survival

:14:25.:14:29.

Hull needed a win to stand any chance and what seemed inevitable

:14:30.:14:36.

for much of the campaign, was now a reality.

:14:37.:14:38.

Lewis Hamilton has won the Spanish Grand Prix.

:14:39.:14:43.

Having started on poll, lost the lead to rival

:14:44.:14:47.

Sebastian Vettel at the start of the race, only to regain it

:14:48.:14:49.

He moves to within six points of Vettel in the drivers championship.
