More computers are likely to be affected tomorrow by the cyber
attack that hit many parts of the NHS, as the working
week begins and people return to their desks.
The ransomware attack is now known to have had 200,000
victims around the world, with Europe's law enforcement agency
saying new versions are being released and an international
manhunt underway for those responsible.
With some NHS Trusts still affected, we'll hear
from our Health Editor in a moment but first our Security
A cyber attack that spread like wildfire around the world
It was launched on Friday by hackers whose identity is still unknown
and what's been seen so far has already been extraordinary,
We've never seen anything like this unprecedented scale,
the latest numbers we are seeing, over 200,000 victims in over 150
countries but clearly a global phenomenon.
This is what victims have been confronted with,
they've been locked out of their computer
and they will have to pay a ransom to get back in.
In Britain the NHS teams have been the main victim.
In Russia the Interior Ministry was hit.
In France a car plant had to stop production and in Germany train
arrivals and departure boards were hacked leading to a return
This map, created by a researcher who's tracked the virus, shows the
spread of infection. What all those affected had in common was their
computers had not been upgrated to eliminate this danger. In America
the FBI and NSA are trying to find those responsible. Here Britain's
cyber security centre, part of GCHQ, says it has not seen a new wave of
attacks strike the UK since Friday, but when people turn on their
computers tomorrow, the fear is, we could see problems on a significant
scale because of malicious software which has already spread. What's
likely to happen tomorrow is that organisations that didn't know they
were affected on Friday, may find that out tomorrow and organisations
that were affected on Friday and over the weekend, might find so some
of the problems have spread. That's not to say that the attacks are new.
It's a repercussion of what happened on Friday. This is what the first
computer looked like. Colossus, built and Bletchley Park to break
German codes. Since then computers have become almost infinitely more
powerful but we've also become much more dependent on them. That means
the struggle between those seeking to protect systems and those seeking
to exploit or undermine them, matters more than ever. The risks of
insecure computer systems have been known about for decades. But it is
only in the last few days, with the extraordinary global spread of this
new virus, that people are realising what that actually means for all of
us. Out of the original 47 health
trusts in England affected by the cyber-attack,
seven are still experiencing problems restoring their IT systems
- as are 11 Scottish health boards. In some cases, ambulances have been
diverted to other hospitals and patients are being warned
that there may be disruption It was the biggest-ever attack on
health service IT networks. Today staff at those hospitals caught up
in the disruption were doing their best to get them up and running,
using paper where they had to. Questions are being asked about
whether NHS IT security was adequate. Some trusts are still
using an outdated and unprotecting operating system, Windows XP.
Ministers said there had been investment. We are spending around
?50 million on the NHS cyber systems to improve their security. We have
encouraged the NHS Trusts to reduce their exposure to the weakest
system, the Windows XP. Only 5%, less than 5% of the trusts actually
use that system any more. York Hospital's computers were affected
but managers say they weren't using the old system and they had invested
in security patches to protect against viruses We are almost
applying patches based on best advice on a weekly basis, supplied
by our providers. We are working with the biggest brains in the
industry. We run a large system. We take our responsibilities really
seriously. Labour has written to the Health Secretary, Jeremy Hunt,
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 long warned that the Government's attitude to cyber
security in the NHS was complacent. They have cut the infrastructure
budget so that the NHS couldn't put the money it needed into securing
its IT systems and I'm afraid now the chickens are coming home to
roost. Labour says if elected it'll invest billions of pounds in the NHS
to up-Grade I T systems and modern ieds hospitals and other buildings.
England's trust which includes the Royal London Hospital was one of
those hit by the impact of the atoo, the IT systems are still not running
normally. Managers say a certain number of appointments and routine
operations will go ahead tomorrow. NHS England had this advice for
patients: It may be a little bit slower when you get there because
the hospitals are using different systems, so please be patient. The
basic message is - if you have an appointment, you should attend. But
some ambulances are still being diverted. For some hospitals, this
unprecedented disruption is not over yet.
After a weekend like this, what is the advice for those
who have an appointment tomorrow at one of the affected trusts?
Nchts well the sfris NHS leaders in England and Scotland is, if you have
an appointment tomorrow or planned surgery and haven't heard to the
contrary go along. Those worst-affected are still saying - go
along, we think he can go ahead with your appointment. They have managed
to sort things out with back-up records. Slightly confusingly at
least one hospital has put out a message in its area saying - go
online and check or phone, which might cause confusion. Then you have
the GP practices caught up in all this. Their systems were shut down
on Friday. What will happen when they try to open them up tomorrow
morning? They are saying come along to your apolybut at least one
practice has told patients - we won't be -- -- to your appointment
but at least one practice has told patients we might not be able to get
hold of your records. There there was a backlog of procedures
cancelled on Friday and I think the whole affect of this may be felt for
a little while to come. Thank you. Emmanuel Macron was sworn in today
as France's youngest president, promising in his inaugural address
to restore his country's He said France has to find answers
to the great crises of the time, including migration,
terrorism and climate change. Our Europe Correspondent,
Damian Grammaticas, was watching. Not since France had
an emperor 200 years ago, Just 39 years old and
inaugurated president today. Emmanuel Macron - he's got
here thanks to self-confidence The disillusion that has
fuelled populism elsewhere, has led France to back a newcomer
but from the liberal centre. He only formed his political
movement last year. His predecessor, Francois Hollande,
leaves office as France's most unpopular leader of modern time
but the task in front of Mr Macron is huge, if he's to bring
about the renaissance he's pledged. TRANSLATION: All labour laws
will be liberalised, Innovation and creativity will be
at the heart of my programme. The French feel left
behind by globalisation To achieve all that, Mr Macron needs
a majority in parliament, but his new party has no MPs
and elections are in 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 He will need more than youthful
optimism and energy to succeed. What he hopes is that
by reinvigorating France, he can make it a force once again
at the heart of the EU. TRANSLATION: President Macron will
relaunch the EU along If the British were still members,
they would be part of this, It will be on the basis
that countries who want For France and Europe, much rests
on some very young shoulders. Labour has defended its promise
to raise billions of pounds for public services with a new tax
on financial transactions Under plans for a so-called
Robin Hood tax, stamp duty currently paid on the sale of shares would be
extended to cover other types The Conservatives are promising
to build a "new generation" of social housing in England
if they win on June 8th but admitted there's no
new funding for the plan. The party says it expects thousands
of homes to be built each year over the course of the next Parliament,
paid for from the ?1.4 billion already set aside
for infrastructure. Scotland's First Minister,
Nicola Sturgeon, has admitted that literacy and numeracy have got worse
in Scottish schools. A survey last week showed less
than half of 13 and 14-year-old pupils were performing
well in writing. Ms Sturgeon told the Andrew Marr
Show that action is being taken We have identified a particular
issue with literacy and numeracy and we're also determined
to accelerate the progress We have a massive programme
of reform underway The Royal College of Nursing
is warning of a "summer of protests" unless the government drops its 1%
cap on pay for nurses. It says the cap has caused
a significant real-terms The Bank of England Governor,
Mark Carney, has said that households will be squeezed as wages
fail to keep up with rising prices. As part of our Reality Check
series on key issues in the run-up to the election,
tonight Steph McGovern examines Whether you think the politicians
are spinning you a yarn or not, the key issues being debated
are really important to lots of people, not least how
much we are being paid. If you look back over the last
decade, average wages in real In other words, the cost of living
has been going up faster than pay and that means we have been facing
a pay cut. Even though we have seen wages start
to go up over the last few years, Before the financial crisis,
average weekly earnings when you take into account
inflation, were ?476, now they By their very nature,
these figures are averages, so therefore they vary depending
on what you do and where you live but look at this map because it
shows the regional differences in terms of how much
people are earning. The darker areas being where people
on average are earning more. Paul has been doing
research on this. Explain why there are
these differences. If you look at the pattern
of investments across the country. The darker areas are tending
to attract more high skill jobs, IT, smartphone app development,
cinema special effects. Further north, the lighter areas
tend to be jobs like call centres, low skilled manufacturing
and cheaper places This leads to different types
of investment and different types of jobs and different wages
as a result. While pay has suffered,
employment has actually risen and there is more people in work
than ever before. But people are working much more
flexibly now and one of the controversial areas is zero
hours contracts and this is where you have definitely got
a job but you're just not guaranteed any hours which can of course put
pressure on people's pay Dan, this something
you have been looking at. The pay squeeze that we are set
to experience this year is coming on the back of really significant
falls in real wages that we saw So taken together that means that
sadly this decade looks like it will be the worst on record
for rising pay packets in 200 years. So why can't employers
pay people more money? We have Andy who is a local
businessman, also from the If we pay too much, then
clearly our costs will be too much and we will become unattractive
to our customers. But what does everyone
else out there think I do think it is really important
that people are rewarded fairly for what they do
and what they contribute and also that they have
got enough to live on, It would be easier if they weren't
paying people at the top so much. Then they would have money to pay
people more wages and expand the business enough to be able
to take on extra people. It is just striking a balance
of something that I can live off as well as have some money to put
on the side with having I can't be working five jobs a day
just to make a living wage. At the moment, inflation and wage
increases are following a similar pattern but if you're working
in the public sector, you will be Obviously tax and benefits play
a part in people's income, too. It looks bleak now but the Bank
of England forecast that by next year, pay packets should start
to pick up again. Steph McGovern, BBC
News, Huddersfield. With all the sport,
here's Katherine Downes Lewis Hamilton has won
the Spanish Grand Prix. Edged out at the start, he fought
back to overtake Sebastian Vettel, who now has just a six point lead
over Hamilton in the In this board,
brilliance comes through Hamilton's came with
a launch for the front. This was the result required
to close the gap but for Hamilton, this victory
means so much more. Match of the Day 2 follows later
on BBC One, so if you don't want today's Premier League news,
it's time to avert your attention. Hull City have been relegated
from the Premier League after a day of contrasting emotions at Selhurst
Park. A 4-0 thrashing at the hands
of Crystal Palace means Hull join Middlesbrough and Sunderland
in the Championship next season. But the result guaranteed
that Palace will remain It was 4-0 between Liverpool
and West Ham, too. The win moves Liverpool back up
to third and a step closer to finishing in the Champions League
places. Tottenham ended their 118 years
at White Hart Lane on a high. They beat Manchester United 2-1
to round off an unbeaten season They'll play at Wembley
while their new ground is built. British hopes of winning the Giro
d'Italia could well be over after a dramatic crash
on today's stage. Geraint Thomas and Adam Yates
were in second and third overall but they were caught up in this
collision with a police motorbike They're now more than five minutes
behind the race leader. And double Olympic champion
Nick Skelton and his horse, Big Star, both retired
from showjumping today. The pair won individual gold in Rio
to add to Skelton's team gold Is a new kind of politics and
merging in Britain ahead of the coloured rosettes? Be built to
believe the EU cut across the usual political lines and elsewhere,
established parties are facing challenges. In the first of a series
on the changing face of UK politics, our Home Editor Mark Easton has been
to Liverpool and Sunderland to examine the old left- right divide.
Sunderland used to be shipbuilder to the world.
A new vessel slipped into the water here every nine days at one time.
But the globalisation that created this proud city is now seen
I'm passing the boats to Sunderland and passing the boats
to the north-east and we haven't got any more...

Fishing boats, you could walk across the river on them,
We've got to start thinking about ourselves more.
This part of the country is being left behind.
It's your identity, you have got to protect your identity.
And you feel that's under threat by globalisation?
Throughout the world we have seen the Trumps coming up
and we have seen in France, a movement that's moving away
Traditional politics is taking a battering.
From the views of the Welcome Inn, here in Sunderland, to Brexit,
to Trump, the new French president, across the western world,
It's a longer about left or right so much as globalism
Many people in this city feel that Sunderland
That its destiny is decided beyond reach, in Westminster,
in Brussels or a boardroom in Yokohama.
I feel as if everything is much, much further away for us.
Because of the internet and because of the modern technology.
We had mining communities, we had shipbuilding communities,
there were all these big communities that would all pull together
because everybody knew each other, everybody.
The unions were a huge thing whereas the unions are fragmented.
Nobody is really turning to the unions.
The unions don't have the power that they used to have.
We have our vote but that is where it starts and stops.
Like the people of Wearside, voters on Merseyside have backed
In this part of Liverpool, they don't see globalisation
The huge cargo ships busy loading and unloading at the port

Prosperity built on immigration and international trade is central
Unlike Labour Sunderland, where most people voted to leave the EU,
a majority in Labour Liverpool voted to remain.
It is not a left-wing beer or right-wing beer,
it's about giving the people of Liverpool a voice.
It's red, it's blue, it's yellow, purple, whatever.
Liverpool is a defiant, resilient city and from its grassroots,
a new pro-globalisation movement has started to bubble up.
We're all global people in this city.
We are all daughters of the city, sons of the citybut
daughters of immigrants and sons of immigrants.
I am immensely proud of being British.
But, yes, I do feel like this is another world as well.

significant than many before it. Five years ago programmes on
online-only channels couldn't be entered. This year, after a series
of rule changes, they are not only eligible but streaming service Net
Flix's royal drama the Crown is leading the nominations. On the
night the royal drama went home empty hand and in a more
traditionally-feeling result the BBC dominated, winning more than
three-quarters of the awards, including two BAFTAs for... Happy
Valley. I thought I got through to him and he was stepping down. The
Yorkshire set crime drama won Best Series and West actress for Sarah
Lancashire. Clare Foy, you have given me the best ten hours under a
duvet, that I have ever had. The drama, Damilola, Our Loved Boy also
won two BAFTAs, including Best Supporting Actress for Phoebe
Waller-Bridge. I pray for justice for damn damn. And a couple of
awards for Plan the Earth's snakes verses iguana chase. The mini series
award went to Channel 4's National Treasure about a comedian accused of
historic crimes. The BBC News won the award and Joanna Lumley received
a standing ovation after she was received with BAFTA's highest
accolade, the Fellowship.
