All of Scotland's NHS boards, except Lothian, Orkney and Shetland,
have been hit by the cyberattack which has also disrupted
The Scottish Ambulance Service has also been hacked.
Most of the disruption has been to GP practices.
The Scottish Government's resilience committee
The Health Minister says there's no evidence of any breach
At hospitals in Lanarkshire tonight 's staff are still unable to access
patients' medical histories by computer. In Monklands, and Wishaw
patients' medical histories by hospitals, there was a cyberattack
this afternoon and since then they have had to rely on paper records,
fine for current patients are problematic for new arrivals, so
they're asking for public help. If people have an emergency
situation over the next couple of days, it would be helpful to bring
with them a list of their medications and their current
medications, to help us in terms of understanding what their clinical
history is, and also if they attend... If they had an opportunity
to bring a member of their family with them who could help provide
that collateral medical history to help us in these difficult
situations we find ourselves in. NHS Lanarkshire refused to be the
only area in Scotland were hospitals have been affected - apart from
Lothian, Orkney and Shetland, all of Scotland's health boards have been
breached in this massive cyberattack, but in most areas it
has been just a small number of GP surgeries which encountered
problems. The thing I want to make clear is that there is absolutely no
evidence of any breach of any patient data at all, so we were able
to give that level of assurance to patients out there that there is no
evidence of any patient data being breached at all.
So everybody is working very hard and are IT people are working hard
through the night and over the weekend to help to resolve these
issues. Though the Scottish Ambulance
Service was also hacked, it has not affected their operations. The next
resilience meeting chaired by the Scottish Government takes place
early tomorrow morning. Proposals to ban parents in Scotland
from smacking their children have been opened up
for public consultation. At the moment, there is a legal
defence of "justifiable assault". All it takes is a firm voice
from Mum to let a child know they're misbehaving,
but, for some parents, a smack can be an effective
way of disciplining, and banning it could
send the wrong message. It's risky and it could criminalise
parents who are genuinely, Smacking children is not
something I agree with, but maybe a better approach
would be educating people. If your child is old enough
to reason with them, then do that, and if they're not enough,
then they don't understand A plan is being set out today aiming
to close the legal loophole of "justifiable assault",
which enables the It still allows parents or carers to
use physical punishment when disciplining a child. The proposed
bill wants to bring Scotland in line with many other countries and give
children full protection from salt, the same that adults currently have.
Attitudes have changed and research shows that people,
in reducing numbers, are using alternatives.
It is not about criminalisation but equal protection for children.
For some, an outright ban on smacking is unnecessary.
There's already a ban on hitting with implements
It doesn't make much sense because if you say all children
should treated like adults, you don't say to adults, go up
It doesn't make any sense. To me it is a virtue signalling and a waste
of time. Members of the public now have
until August 4 to respond Confidence in the ability
of prosecutors to convict for crimes against birds of prey
is being undermined, Our rural affairs correspondent
Kevin Keane reports. A dead pheasant is placed
on what looks like the top Next, the man fumbles
with a line, possibly a spring, designed to hold any bird
which tries to grab the bait. This type of trap has been
illegal for a century. It won't kill the bird,
but hold it until someone The loop is laid on top
of the pheasant and set. The next day he's
back to do it again. This film was to be used
as evidence in the trial of Craig Graham, a gamekeeper
from Angus, but the case It seems to send out a message that,
even if there is an overwhelming piece of evidence that links
an alleged suspect with a crime, it In that way the law is being
undermined. a protected bird is shot
at its nesting site. A man carrying a shotgun

the carcass before walking over He reaches down and
clears up the site. Again, this film was to
be used as evidence, These charges were against Stanley
Gordon, a gamekeeper from Murray. This legal expert says
it's important to know If it genuinely was research and
they record a crime incidentally, But if there's any hint that
surveillance was set up in order to prevent wildlife crime,
that would be inadmissible. This is a trapped goshawk
being trapped into a bag. We don't see what happened to it.
But on this occasion we do see the fate of the bird...

RSPB Scotland says the court should have been allowed
The Crown Office says it has to apply the law fairly.

form the centrepiece of the display

The robes from the ceremony at Westminster Abbey in 1937
are the personal property of the Queen.
She was so kind and I think enthusiastic that it was in memory
of her mother. And I think it is truly lovely, and I am thrilled with
the exhibition. In football, Celtic secured a 3-1
