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


numeracy, and literacy, A survey last week showed less


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


well in writing. Nicola Sturgeon told


the Andrew Marr Show that action is being taken


to address the issues. We have identified a particular


issue with literacy and numeracy and we're also determined


to accelerate the progress We have a massive programme

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?


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


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


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


Conservative I'm going to be voting for.


Because I don't like Labour, basically.


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


Theresa May has made a smart move to force the hand

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


His supporters, confident they are tapping into discontent


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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

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

So, I think the Conservatives will take us through.


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


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


So, their job is done really, I think.
