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...


The Welcome Tavern would once have been packed with merchants


and sailors, buying beer with the profits of


But now custom comes from the struggling neighbourhood


A few years ago, on the river you would have seen nothing but ships.


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


are a reminder of the days when the city was


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.


There are different outlooks on Liverpool


But the political undercurrents are shifting as a new


Stars of the small screen have been gathering


on London's South Bank for the annual British


Actress Joanna Lumley was honoured with the BAFTA Fellowship Award


in recognition of her work in film and TV over the last four decades.


Our Entertainment Correspondent, Lizo Mzimba, reports.


This report contains flash photography. On the red carpet, many


of it. V's best-known faces for a ceremony, potentially more


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.
