to the BBC News at Six. The NHS is the victim

:02:05.:02:07.

of a major cyber attack. Since mid afternoon,

:02:08.:02:09.

computer systems in at least 25 hospital trusts and GP

:02:10.:02:12.

surgeries up and down England In those affected, routine

:02:13.:02:14.

operations are being cancelled, patients are being sent home

:02:15.:02:18.

and ambulances are being diverted. Patients are being asked to stay

:02:19.:02:21.

away unless their condition

:02:22.:02:23.

is life threatening. The cyber attack is a form

:02:24.:02:25.

and Carlisle, Blackpool and York, to some of the big teaching

hospitals in London, and services in

the south of England. Our first report tonight

:02:56.:02:57.

from our health editor Hugh Pym. A major incident has been declared

:02:58.:03:08.

by NHS leaders in England and hospitals like this one in

:03:09.:03:11.

Colchester have been experiencing serious computer problems after a

:03:12.:03:15.

cyber attack. This is what some patients told us: the gentleman just

:03:16.:03:19.

inside the door said that all the computers have gone down, and they

:03:20.:03:23.

are not sure whether the doctors can see you forward have a reason. If it

:03:24.:03:27.

is x-rays, breakages, what have you, they will send you home. VOICEOVER:

:03:28.:03:32.

It has happened before, this hospital trust covering North

:03:33.:03:35.

Lincolnshire and gore, IT systems were closed for three days as the

:03:36.:03:39.

result of a cyber attack last autumn. Hundreds of operations and

:03:40.:03:43.

patient appointments were postponed, people were told to get to eight and

:03:44.:03:47.

the only if it was really necessary, there were warnings that NHS IT was

:03:48.:03:53.

honourable. And today staff looking in at other hospitals found this on

:03:54.:03:57.

their screens, with a message saying, your files are encrypted, if

:03:58.:04:00.

you want to recover them, you need to pay up. -- Northern Lincolnshire

:04:01.:04:03.

and Goole. -- A Ransomware, a hidden programme used by criminal

:04:04.:04:08.

hackers was being used. The NHS is vulnerable, typically it has not

:04:09.:04:12.

invested enough in computer security, using old computers and

:04:13.:04:14.

systems and if they don't keep them properly patched they will keep

:04:15.:04:21.

getting hit by attacks like this. In a statement, NHS digital,

:04:22.:04:21.

responsible for IT, has said: one doctor at this hospital in

:04:22.:04:44.

Mansfield told us how it was affecting services today: I had a

:04:45.:04:50.

meeting today, a patient with severe back pain, could potentially

:04:51.:04:59.

paralyse her. And we had to divert her to another hospital, Queens

:05:00.:05:04.

medical Centre. It is getting a bit difficult for us. We have a lot of

:05:05.:05:08.

patience here. It takes an awful lot of time for us to process the

:05:09.:05:16.

information on a paper system. Some hospitals warned local people they

:05:17.:05:21.

were experiencing significant IT and telephone problems. Some GP

:05:22.:05:24.

practices have also reported significant problems.

:05:25.:05:31.

STUDIO: Let's speak to our correspondents at some

:05:32.:05:33.

Helena Lee is at Barts in London

:05:34.:05:41.

To you first Helena, what's happening there?

:05:42.:05:48.

They have activated what they call a major incident plan for the welfare

:05:49.:05:55.

and safety of their patients. All routine appointments have been

:05:56.:05:59.

cancelled, Haitians have been told to use other NHS services if they

:06:00.:06:03.

can, and any ambulances arriving here have been diverted to

:06:04.:06:04.

neighbouring hospitals. We've just spoken to one

:06:05.:06:08.

patient who's waited months for a major heart operation,

:06:09.:06:11.

he was all prepared for the operation but it was cancelled

:06:12.:06:14.

at the last minute. Colchester general, treating more

:06:15.:06:28.

than half a million people every year, the potential here, as

:06:29.:06:31.

elsewhere, for destruction, was huge, having been inside and spoken

:06:32.:06:35.

to staff and patients, it seems to be measured and calm, one member of

:06:36.:06:39.

staff has said, tough but manageable. One of the patients, in

:06:40.:06:43.

the report, a few moans and groans but most people have been

:06:44.:06:45.

understanding when they were told they would be sent home. A couple of

:06:46.:06:50.

other patients say that they are yet to be convinced on this claim that

:06:51.:06:53.

patient's data has not in some way been compromised. This hospital

:06:54.:06:57.

works very closely with a hospital 19 miles up the road in its rich,

:06:58.:07:01.

sharing a Chief Executive, it is a sign of the patchwork nature of this

:07:02.:07:05.

at this one was affected by the other one was not. Broomfield

:07:06.:07:09.

Hospital, Chelmsford, was hit, and the list in Stevenage, and in

:07:10.:07:14.

Norfolk, but others unaffected, Adam Brook scum of the biggest hospital

:07:15.:07:17.

in this region, was unaffected. -- Adam Brook 's. -- Addenbrooke's

:07:18.:07:30.

Hospital. Let's talk to our technology

:07:31.:07:33.

correspondent, Rory Cellan Jones. What more can you tell us about this

:07:34.:07:35.

cyber attack and the ransomeware The most dangerous and most

:07:36.:07:41.

important weapon in the hands of cybercriminals, we have seen attacks

:07:42.:07:43.

over the last couple of years over the years including previous attacks

:07:44.:07:48.

on NHS hospitals, this is by far the biggest we have seen, and the NHS is

:07:49.:07:53.

stressing that it was not specifically targeted, this is a

:07:54.:07:57.

wider attack, and I'm seeing evidence of that, one researcher

:07:58.:08:04.

saying that 36 bells and detections, so far, Russia, Ukraine and Taiwan

:08:05.:08:12.

leading, this is huge, reports from many places across the world, in

:08:13.:08:17.

Spain in particular. -- 36,000 detections. We will bring you more

:08:18.:08:24.

on that story as it develops later in the programme.

:08:25.:08:27.

Jeremy Corbyn says the war on terror isn't working and Britain

:08:28.:08:29.

In a speech outlining his foreign policy, he said he wasn't a pacifist

:08:30.:08:33.

and could see circumstances in which he would involve Britain

:08:34.:08:36.

in a war but he warned against what he called a "bomb

:08:37.:08:39.

Mr Corbyn accused Theresa May of pandering to Donald Trump,

:08:40.:08:42.

who he said was making the world a more dangerous place.

:08:43.:08:45.

Here's our Deputy Political Editor John Pienaar.

:08:46.:08:49.

VOICEOVER: He is used to it now, all the attention, and not always

:08:50.:08:55.

friendly, though he still tries to be. Don't push each other, OK.

:08:56.:09:00.

Labour's campaign is so much about Jeremy Corbyn, his character, his

:09:01.:09:04.

ideas, he has held here for 30 years, though some in his party

:09:05.:09:09.

which he had not, like defence, and the Labour leader today was holding

:09:10.:09:13.

to his oldest and deepest convictions, writing of years of

:09:14.:09:19.

Britain's way of war against terror. The war on terror has not succeeded,

:09:20.:09:24.

it has driven these interventions and it has not increased security at

:09:25.:09:28.

home, in fact, many would say, just the opposite. This, Britain's

:09:29.:09:34.

leader, on-site and alongside with Donald Trump, not Jeremy Corbyn's

:09:35.:09:39.

answer, more talking, less fighting, yes, and a lot less cosy and is with

:09:40.:09:43.

Washington if Jeremy Corbyn wins. We deserve better than simply

:09:44.:09:48.

outsourcing defence and prosperity to the whims of Donald Trump's White

:09:49.:09:53.

House, no more handholding with Donald Trump. A Labour government

:09:54.:09:56.

will conduct a robust and independent foreign policy. The

:09:57.:10:02.

message, when facing terrorism, to rely on peace and diplomacy, but

:10:03.:10:04.

what about Britain's nuclear deterrent? And Jeremy Corbyn's

:10:05.:10:10.

lifelong opposition to nuclear defence, or potential Prime Minister

:10:11.:10:15.

that has become a nagging question, a live election issue, and he knew

:10:16.:10:19.

it. -- for a potential Prime Minister. I am often asked if I

:10:20.:10:22.

would order the use of nuclear weapons, it is an ordinary question

:10:23.:10:26.

when you think about it, would you order the indiscriminate killing of

:10:27.:10:30.

millions of people? Would you risk such contamination of the planet

:10:31.:10:34.

that no life could exist across large parts of the world? If

:10:35.:10:38.

circumstances arose where there was a real option, it would represent a

:10:39.:10:42.

complete and cataclysmic failure, it would mean world leaders have

:10:43.:10:46.

already triggered a spiral of catastrophe. That sounded like a no,

:10:47.:10:52.

he wanted nuclear defence reconsidered as well. We cannot

:10:53.:10:55.

decide what a review would decide otherwise we would not have a

:10:56.:11:00.

review. Would you say to -- what you say to supporters British military

:11:01.:11:05.

power, it is not clear when you would sent forces into battle,

:11:06.:11:09.

including strikes against Islamic State Western Mark McGrath I doubt

:11:10.:11:11.

many if any would have questioned the legitimacy ultimately of the

:11:12.:11:18.

Second World War because of the catastrophe of the rise of the

:11:19.:11:19.

Nazis. -- against Islamic State? British air strikes on so-called

:11:20.:11:28.

Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, which Jeremy Corbyn has opposed, he

:11:29.:11:33.

is glad now that he has joined the marches against the Iraq invasion,

:11:34.:11:37.

which drove down support for Labour in government, he wanted British

:11:38.:11:41.

raids against IS reviewed. Examine what they are doing straightaway,

:11:42.:11:45.

and their presence, but above all, that fits into the whole point I am

:11:46.:11:48.

saying, I would do everything I possibly could in order to reignite

:11:49.:11:56.

the peace process. Some, not all Labour supporters, agree, others,

:11:57.:11:59.

very far from it. A Labour Party led by Jeremy Corbyn that would simply

:12:00.:12:06.

chuck away at ability to defend ourselves is crazy and not the way I

:12:07.:12:10.

want so. You see defence policy sucking in billions of pounds on

:12:11.:12:15.

Trident, at a time when a conventional defence Force has seen

:12:16.:12:18.

cut after cut after cut. Approval for the leaders line here, today,

:12:19.:12:23.

but Labour needs converts, lots of them. -- leader's line.

:12:24.:12:31.

Well Theresa May was campaigning in the north-east today,

:12:32.:12:33.

in an attempt to win over Labour voters.

:12:34.:12:37.

She accused Jeremy Corbyn of deserting what she called

:12:38.:12:41.

"proud and patriotic" working class people.

:12:42.:12:44.

And as Mr Corbyn was outlying Labour's foreign policy plans,

:12:45.:12:46.

Mrs May didn't rule out a future parliamentary vote

:12:47.:12:49.

on joining American military strikes against Syria.

:12:50.:12:50.

Here's our Political Editor Laura Kuenssberg.

:12:51.:12:53.

What the Tories might expect, a raw reception in much of the Northeast

:12:54.:12:59.

England. The Tories will ruin our environment. Can the Conservatives

:13:00.:13:05.

win around here, no! Definitely not! No chance! A very small selection of

:13:06.:13:09.

people canvassing for the Tories, we have a huge following for the

:13:10.:13:15.

Labour. Inside, Theresa May believes she can swell these polite ranks of

:13:16.:13:20.

her supporters, trying to stir up national pride, with talk of

:13:21.:13:24.

security, and defence, while slamming her Labour opponents, who

:13:25.:13:28.

have been in charge round here for a long time. Proud and patriotic

:13:29.:13:33.

working class people, in towns and cities across Britain, have not

:13:34.:13:38.

deserted the Labour Party, we respect the parents and grandparents

:13:39.:13:42.

taught their children and grandchildren that Labour was a

:13:43.:13:45.

party that share their values and stood up for their community. But

:13:46.:13:52.

across the country today, traditional Labour supporters are

:13:53.:13:54.

increasingly looking at what Jeremy Corbyn believes in, and are

:13:55.:13:59.

appalled. Beyond the attack lines, on safety and security, what might

:14:00.:14:05.

she do if she stays in charge? You have thought a lot about Patrick

:14:06.:14:09.

isn't today, would you think it patriotic to join the United States

:14:10.:14:15.

in more strikes against Syria, or will you rule out having a

:14:16.:14:18.

parliamentary vote on that? We are, as you know, the United Kingdom is

:14:19.:14:25.

part of the coalition that is operating in Syria and Iraq, with

:14:26.:14:28.

the United States, but with other countries as well, when I look at

:14:29.:14:32.

the decisions we will be taking in terms of defence and foreign policy,

:14:33.:14:35.

there is one thing that will drive the decisions, that those decisions

:14:36.:14:39.

will be taken in the British national interest. Not quite a no

:14:40.:14:44.

will stop and she really take the Tories beyond small pockets of the

:14:45.:14:47.

north-east? Look at the side of the bus to see how they hope. -- not

:14:48.:14:52.

quite a no. Her name in giant letters, you almost need a

:14:53.:14:57.

magnifying glass for the party. We will deliver for Britain. She may be

:14:58.:15:03.

well ahead in the polls, the Tory manifesto is not even published yet,

:15:04.:15:09.

how far can she really reach? I was Labour if you year ago, when I first

:15:10.:15:13.

started voting, but my views are changing, working life and what is

:15:14.:15:16.

happening in this world, in this country, my views are changing.

:15:17.:15:19.

INAUDIBLE QUESTION I haven't. You will be voting

:15:20.:15:26.

Conservative the first time? Yes, strong opinions on "Brexit", that

:15:27.:15:30.

has changed my mind, that is where I want to see the country go,

:15:31.:15:33.

stand-alone, move forward that way. Getting on the road in the

:15:34.:15:36.

north-east is part of a deliberate strategy, not just in trying to win,

:15:37.:15:41.

but in trying to pump up the majority. I've used virtually every

:15:42.:15:46.

form of transport you can think of in this election campaign, except

:15:47.:15:50.

horses. However she travels and whatever the polls say today,

:15:51.:15:54.

shifting huge numbers of votes in Labour territory is a hard sell.

:15:55.:15:59.

Theresa May has already been to more than 20 Labour seats, including some

:16:00.:16:04.

here in the north-east which should traditionally be safe as houses. The

:16:05.:16:07.

Tories say that she is selling a positive message, every day they are

:16:08.:16:11.

trying to display contrast between her and Jeremy Corbyn, brutally

:16:12.:16:15.

trying to strip away the Labour vote. I'm the only one more

:16:16.:16:19.

important than the Prime Minister! LAUGHTER

:16:20.:16:23.

Convention suggest whole chunks of the North of England, Scotland and

:16:24.:16:27.

Wales are not safe for the Conservatives but Theresa May wants

:16:28.:16:31.

to 's persuade you that the country's future is only safe with

:16:32.:16:38.

her. -- wants to persuade you that the country's future is only safe

a teenager who died from an allergic reaction to his school lunch

:17:32.:17:36.

could possibly have been saved if staff had given him the adrenalin

injection he needed. 14-year-old Nasar Ahmed,

who had severe asthma and a wide range of food allergies,

:17:42.:17:44.

collapsed at a school Our correspondent Sarah Campbell has

:17:45.:17:46.

been at the inquest today. Nasar Ahmed love maths and science

:17:47.:17:59.

and wanted to be a politician. He also suffered a severe asthma and

:18:00.:18:04.

food allergies. His family have heard in detail how he came to die

:18:05.:18:08.

after having an extreme allergic reaction to an ingredient in a curry

:18:09.:18:14.

he had for lunch while at school. A couple of hours after Nasar had

:18:15.:18:17.

eaten, he told staff here that he couldn't breathe. There was

:18:18.:18:21.

confusion as to what might be wrong and his personal medical box was

:18:22.:18:25.

found. It contained an adrenaline injector pen, or EpiPen, but there

:18:26.:18:29.

were no instructions as to how or when to use it. So nobody did. The

:18:30.:18:34.

coroner concluded that if the EpiPen had been used promptly and Nasar had

:18:35.:18:41.

been administered adrenaline, there was a possibility but not a

:18:42.:18:44.

probability that this would have changed the outcome. Nasar died four

:18:45.:18:48.

days later in hospital. His family said the school let them and their

:18:49.:18:55.

sundown. They failed in their care of duty for my son, they failed to

:18:56.:19:02.

give the right injection. If they gave the EpiPen injection at that

:19:03.:19:07.

time, five minutes before the ambulance came, it would have saved

:19:08.:19:12.

his life. The school issued a statement today are saying following

:19:13.:19:17.

Nasar's death, we have reviewed safety procedures and are providing

:19:18.:19:20.

more training for staff across the board. The coroner will be writing

:19:21.:19:24.

several reports including to Nasar's School in an effort to prevent

:19:25.:19:30.

future deaths. She will also suggest to the Chief Medical Officer that if

:19:31.:19:34.

more EpiPens were available and more widely understood, lives could be

:19:35.:19:38.

saved. Sarah Campbell, BBC News, east London.

Donald Trump has warned his former FBI director James Comey

:19:40.:19:41.

against leaking stories to the press, saying

:19:42.:19:43.

on Twitter that he'd "better hope there are no tapes"

:20:16.:20:19.

also sounds like Donald Trump has been taping conversations that have

:20:20.:20:22.

been taking place in the White House in the Oval Office. That has strong

:20:23.:20:27.

echoes of another president, Richard Nixon, who was brought down by those

:20:28.:20:31.

tapes. I am not sure that is the territory where Donald Trump wants

:20:32.:20:37.

to be. He is about to give a briefing, or his spokesman is about

:20:38.:20:40.

to give a briefing. He is bound to be asked, are you taping

:20:41.:20:43.

conversations with people who come to visit? Other things Donald Trump

:20:44.:20:47.

had to did this morning, and we have come to expect the unexpected, he

:20:48.:20:51.

said about the briefings, as a very active president with lots of things

:20:52.:20:55.

happening, it is not usable for my surrogates to stand at the podium

:20:56.:20:58.

with perfect accuracy. In other words, maybe what we are telling you

:20:59.:21:02.

is not strictly true. Then he goes on "But let's cancel the briefings,

:21:03.:21:06.

maybe, and we will just give you written statements in future". This

:21:07.:21:11.

all comes as Donald Trump has had some good news today on a trade deal

:21:12.:21:14.

with China. But all of that is getting completely lost in the

:21:15.:21:19.

threat that has been issued to his former head of the FBI. Jon Sopel at

:21:20.:21:23.

the White House, thank you. In the run-up to the general

:21:24.:21:25.

election, we've been asking you about the subjects that you care

:21:26.:21:27.

about and want covered. A lot of you have got in touch

:21:28.:21:30.

about business rates - the tax based on how much a business

:21:31.:21:32.

property is worth. Some independent shops in England

:21:33.:21:35.

are facing big increases after their property values

:21:36.:21:37.

were revalued by the government. Elaine Dunkley has been to Southwold

:21:38.:21:39.

in Suffolk to find out more. Business rates are a massive issue

:21:40.:21:48.

for small businesses. I'm Rebecca Bishop and I'm the owner

:21:49.:21:56.

of Two Magpies Bakery in Southwold. Nobody was foreseeing the massive

:21:57.:22:02.

increases that we were suddenly It is a really important

:22:03.:22:05.

issue because it's not just my business I'm thinking of,

:22:06.:22:17.

it's all the other Rebecca's bakery is classed

:22:18.:22:20.

as a small business. Her rates have been capped

:22:21.:22:23.

until April next year, but after that, she says she doesn't

:22:24.:22:26.

know what will happen. It will become just another nail

:22:27.:22:31.

in the coffin for businesses that are fighting, some

:22:32.:22:34.

of them, to survive. A lot of small independents,

:22:35.:22:38.

we're almost looking at a species wipe-out of whole areas that

:22:39.:22:41.

are just being overtaken Part of the problem is that property

:22:42.:22:43.

prices have gone up in the town. The locals say that's driven

:22:44.:22:52.

by holiday lets, second homes But we're looking

:22:53.:22:55.

forward to the summer. I'm the owner of Mills

:22:56.:23:11.

Sons family butchers. Charlie could be facing rates

:23:12.:23:17.

of up to ?17,000 a year. If we can't make a profit,

:23:18.:23:23.

we won't be able to stay. So we shall have to look

:23:24.:23:26.

at other alternatives. Southwold has become

:23:27.:23:36.

an expensive place to stay. Maybe it's a little too expensive

:23:37.:23:38.

for independent shops. For the butcher and the baker

:23:39.:23:42.

and the other small businesses, this is a big election issue,

:23:43.:23:44.

a vote decider. I would be looking to vote

:23:45.:23:48.

for a government that is giving support to the notion of diversity

:23:49.:23:51.

on the high street, valuing independent businesses

:23:52.:23:54.

and what they bring to our society And if you want to find out

:23:55.:23:59.

more about what policies the parties are offering you,

:24:00.:24:10.

or indeed find out how to contact us with an issue you want exploring,

:24:11.:24:13.

then our website is Let's return to our main story

:24:14.:24:16.

and the cyber attack on the NHS. This has been breaking since this

:24:17.:24:38.

afternoon and we are finding out more about who is involved in which

:24:39.:24:41.

hospitals have been affected. Updaters on what you know so far? It

:24:42.:24:47.

seems that it is about 25 organisations in England. That is

:24:48.:24:51.

trusts and some in Scotland. That is the extent of it that we know about.

:24:52.:24:56.

But it seems as if there could be more to come and it is a national

:24:57.:24:59.

incident being monitored at the highest levels of the NHS in

:25:00.:25:03.

England. They have put out a statement reassuring patients that

:25:04.:25:06.

if they need the NHS and it is an emergency, they should go to A and

:25:07.:25:11.

normal service is available. But they are asking people, if they

:25:12.:25:15.

don't need to be at A, to be elsewhere. We have had reports of

:25:16.:25:17.

trauma cases heading for one hospital and being switched to

:25:18.:25:21.

another. The message is that urgent care is still available at the NHS.

:25:22.:25:27.

What about nonurgent care, patients who have operations scheduled, GP

:25:28.:25:30.

appointments? What should they do? We have heard from patients going

:25:31.:25:35.

into this afternoon being sent away because their routine outpatient

:25:36.:25:38.

appointment couldn't happen or a test. It seems likely there will be

:25:39.:25:41.

disruption for several days and that routine surgery will be put off

:25:42.:25:45.

while they try to get to the bottom of the IT problem. The last time it

:25:46.:25:48.

happened in Lincolnshire at the end of last year, it was two or three

:25:49.:25:52.

days before things got back to normal. We are hearing from GPs that

:25:53.:25:57.

there are serious issues for them. They are having difficulty providing

:25:58.:26:01.

patient care. They are able to talk to patients and advise them, by

:26:02.:26:07.

getting hold of records has been impossible. So possibly a lot of

:26:08.:26:09.

disruption to GP appointments running well into next week. Hugh,

:26:10.:26:10.

thank you. The Highlands of Scotland were the

:26:11.:26:22.

case to be today for sunshine and warmth, whereas elsewhere across the

:26:23.:26:25.

UK, there was a good deal of crowd, some outbreaks of rain and a bit of

:26:26.:26:28.

sunshine. Here is the satellite and radar picture, which was quite

:26:29.:26:34.

messy. A lot of cloud and rain moving away from the north-west of

:26:35.:26:37.

England, heading towards Northern Ireland. We will see rain pushing

:26:38.:26:42.

into the south of Wales. Parts of Scotland are also quite wet. But

:26:43.:26:48.

other parts of England are largely dry. It is not a cold night. By nine

:26:49.:26:57.

in the morning, it is dry and bright and breezy across the south of the

:26:58.:27:00.

UK. Most places will be dry. There will be a shower or two, but the

:27:01.:27:04.

cloud will break and allow sunshine through. In the north of Wales, more

:27:05.:27:08.

cloud and outbreaks of rain, as you will find in the south-west of

:27:09.:27:11.

England. Northern Ireland will also see outbreaks of rain. Still pretty

:27:12.:27:17.

great along the eastern side of Scotland. And we will keep it rather

:27:18.:27:28.

grey as well. Looks like the south-east will be largely dry in

:27:29.:27:31.

the afternoon. Temperatures are quite warm. Through the evening, we

:27:32.:27:37.

start to see a band of rain work from west to east. Shouldn't last

:27:38.:27:41.

too long in any given location and by dawn on Sunday, it will clear

:27:42.:27:46.

into the North Sea. Some of it may linger for a time in the north-east

:27:47.:27:49.

of Scotland, but even that clears away and then it is a bright and

:27:50.:27:52.

breezy day on Sunday. There will be lengthy spells of sunshine, but

:27:53.:27:55.

there will be a few showers as well. Most of those will be in the

:27:56.:27:59.

north-west, but some will crop up in the Midlands as well. And a slightly

:28:00.:28:04.

fresher feel to things. The NHS is being hit by a major

:28:05.:28:16.

cyber attack as computers go down, patients are being sent home and

:28:17.:28:17.

ambulances are being diverted. That's all from the BBC News at six,

:28:18.:28:19.

so it's goodbye from me and on BBC One, we now join

:28:20.:28:22.

the BBC's news teams where you are.

:28:23.:28:24.
