The cyber-attack on the NHS is still causing disruption, three

Our health correspondent Rob Sissons is in our newsroom.
What is the picture across the East Midlands?
Well, the good news is many of our health trusts say they can no access
patient records and IT systems are running.
But not everywhere Some of the biggest problems
are at the hospital trust that runs Grantham hospital.
Most routine clinic appointments have
United Lincolnshire hospitals which also runs Lincoln county
and Boston hospitals is asking patients with routine appointments
to stay away unless they have been told otherwise.
A of course is still running, and patients expecting chemotherapy
and antenatal apointments are going ahead.
The advice from hosptials in Nottingham Derby and Leicester
seems to its largely business as usual.
The rule of thumb: attend hospitalunless you have have been
When it comes to GP practies, access to computer databases varies,
And, Rob, you've been to a GP surgery in Nottinghamshire this
morning which has no access to computer records?
Yes, with the central servers down as a precaution at this surgery
in Annersley Woodhouse, they are back to the old way
Yes, this is Dr Place having to write out prescriptions and take
For patietns it can mean longer waits, and for the receptionists
they can't access computer booking systems so don't really know
Dr Place say the NHS will want to learn some big lessons
I would probably say we were unprepared for
But we have business continuity plans and
we put those into place, so we are now working on a manual
system, we're still seeing patients, we're open for business.
How have patients reacted towards the cyber attack
Patients I've spoken to seemed very understanding and patient
but wondered how long this will all go on for.
It is outrageous. Look at the problems it is causing. And it was
an accident waiting to happen. I think everyone trusts computers too
much. I did it realise it was out at the doctors, but it was the
hospitals. If you're caught up in this, we would love to hear from
you. Alec e-mail address is on screen. More on our main programme
at 6:30pm. A man who drove without a license
and killed an elderly pedestrian after crashing has been jailed
for eight years. Matthew Hogg, aged 24,
was being chased by police last April through villages
in South Derbyshire. The police had to call off
the pursuit because they said Hogg drove into Hilton at 60mph
and hit a car which crashed into 75-year-old Barrie Arkesden,
who was killed instantly. The judge said Hogg
drove like a madman. An inquest has reopened
into the death of a 52-year-old man who was fatally injured
at the Leicester factory Tarsem Singh was injured in April
last year while he was operating a piece of machinery
at Nylacast Engineering Amy Harris has been in court
and joins us now live in Leicester. Yes, we heard this morning
Tarsem Singh had worked at Nylacast in Thurmaston for
more than 20 years. He was described an an excellent
employee who was very conscientious and hard-working
and loved his job. On Friday April 14 last year,
Mr Singh was operating a piece of machinery at the factory called
a long length rod machine that moulds plastic into long rods
of around three metres in length. Towards the end of his shift, a thud
was heard and Mr Singh was seen The court heard how the end cap
of the machine was on the floor, and it's thought it had come off
and caused injuries The impact was so severe he lost
some of his teeth, and his jaw That trauma to the chest, we heard,
caused a heart attack, Now we also hear there was no
equipment failure or fault found, and no evidence to support a case
of corporate manslaughter from the police investigation,
which is standard procedure. Leicester Cathedral has been given
more than ?3 million pounds of lottery funding towards ambitious
plans to fund its restoration The total project will cost
more than ?11 million The new heritage centre will provide
a permanent exhibition space, a meeting room
and toilet facilities. The Cathedral still needs to raise
more than ?5.5 million A grandmother who set up
a specialist school for children with autism ten years ago says
she feels vindicated. Terri Westmoreland opened Hopehouse
near Newark because she wasn't satisfied with the education her two
severely autistic A lot has changed in ten years.
Hopehouse sprang out of the disused hostel at the sheer determination of
Terri Westmoreland. She wanted a more tailored provision for her
grandson 's and other autistic children. Now it has 25 pupils and
42 star. I did it. It has been a long laborious Pask and I remember
my husband saying, it is derelict, but you have to do what you have to
do. You have to read this bit first. Severe anxiety kept 16-year-old
Holly out of school for two years. This is her second year at
Hopehouse. It is better because I can crack on my home, I have no
pressure of anybody else, there was no iron better the new and bullying
or anything like that. Matthew Lowton read and write at the school
when he was 17, two years on he is taking five GCSEs including law and
he is largely self-taught. He was to study at Cambridge and develop
treatments for autism. The secret to this place is the passion, no one is
here for the paycheque. Everyone is here for the benefit and help of
individuals. Terri Westmoreland encountered a lot of opposition at
first,. 100% vindicated because we are teaching a lots of children and
we are transforming their lives. It wasn't easy and there have been here
a few tears shed by myself, but now we are succeeding which is amazing.
In two months' time, a new location centre will be opening, offering a
break for parents and a holiday for their children.
Time now for the weather forecast. A bell, cloudy and overcast afternoon.
Lots of rain to come over the next few hours and plenty to come over
the next few days as well. It is quite muggy and close and humid, but
that all started fizzle away and clear away as we go through the day
on Wednesday. This is what it looks like this afternoon. Plenty of rain
knocking about. The majority is light, and is the potential for a
couple of slightly heavier pulses. Temperatures around 15, 16 Celsius
through the afternoon, just a touch breezy. Tonight, early hours of
Tuesday morning, the showery theme continues overnight. Quite a mild
night with temperatures not falling far, so in some areas the overnight
lows will be no different to the daytime highs, so a warm and close
start to the day on Tuesday, plenty of cloud. A few showers, not as many
as today, but if you nonetheless, still with taking an umbrella. A
touch warmer tomorrow, 17, 18 Celsius, a couple of 20s on a map as
well. Not so humid as you go through the day on Wednesday, this area of
rain is slowly making its way towards us. It is replaced by a
drier picture, a few showers on Thursday and Friday.
