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

:00:00.:00:13.

And now the news for the East Midlands, I'm Dominic Heale.

:00:14.:00:17.

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

:00:18.:00:20.

In parts of the East Midlands, some GP surgeries have no access

:00:21.:00:26.

One of our hospital trusts has also cancelled most routine outpatient

:00:27.:00:32.

Our health correspondent Rob Sissons is in our newsroom.

:00:33.:00:38.

What is the picture across the East Midlands?

:00:39.:00:44.

Well, the good news is many of our health trusts say they can no access

:00:45.:00:48.

patient records and IT systems are running.

:00:49.:00:51.

But not everywhere Some of the biggest problems

:00:52.:00:54.

are at the hospital trust that runs Grantham hospital.

:00:55.:00:58.

Most routine clinic appointments have

:00:59.:01:00.

United Lincolnshire hospitals which also runs Lincoln county

:01:01.:01:05.

and Boston hospitals is asking patients with routine appointments

:01:06.:01:07.

to stay away unless they have been told otherwise.

:01:08.:01:09.

A of course is still running, and patients expecting chemotherapy

:01:10.:01:12.

and antenatal apointments are going ahead.

:01:13.:01:17.

The advice from hosptials in Nottingham Derby and Leicester

:01:18.:01:21.

seems to its largely business as usual.

:01:22.:01:23.

The rule of thumb: attend hospitalunless you have have been

:01:24.:01:26.

When it comes to GP practies, access to computer databases varies,

:01:27.:01:34.

And, Rob, you've been to a GP surgery in Nottinghamshire this

:01:35.:01:41.

morning which has no access to computer records?

:01:42.:01:43.

Yes, with the central servers down as a precaution at this surgery

:01:44.:01:47.

in Annersley Woodhouse, they are back to the old way

:01:48.:01:50.

Yes, this is Dr Place having to write out prescriptions and take

:01:51.:01:55.

For patietns it can mean longer waits, and for the receptionists

:01:56.:02:00.

they can't access computer booking systems so don't really know

:02:01.:02:04.

Dr Place say the NHS will want to learn some big lessons

:02:05.:02:10.

I would probably say we were unprepared for

:02:11.:02:19.

But we have business continuity plans and

:02:20.:02:24.

we put those into place, so we are now working on a manual

:02:25.:02:28.

system, we're still seeing patients, we're open for business.

:02:29.:02:32.

How have patients reacted towards the cyber attack

:02:33.:02:34.

Patients I've spoken to seemed very understanding and patient

:02:35.:02:39.

but wondered how long this will all go on for.

:02:40.:02:49.

It is outrageous. Look at the problems it is causing. And it was

:02:50.:02:57.

an accident waiting to happen. I think everyone trusts computers too

:02:58.:03:02.

much. I did it realise it was out at the doctors, but it was the

:03:03.:03:15.

hospitals. If you're caught up in this, we would love to hear from

:03:16.:03:19.

you. Alec e-mail address is on screen. More on our main programme

:03:20.:03:24.

at 6:30pm. A man who drove without a license

:03:25.:03:31.

and killed an elderly pedestrian after crashing has been jailed

:03:32.:03:33.

for eight years. Matthew Hogg, aged 24,

:03:34.:03:35.

was being chased by police last April through villages

:03:36.:03:38.

in South Derbyshire. The police had to call off

:03:39.:03:39.

the pursuit because they said Hogg drove into Hilton at 60mph

:03:40.:03:42.

and hit a car which crashed into 75-year-old Barrie Arkesden,

:03:43.:03:46.

who was killed instantly. The judge said Hogg

:03:47.:03:50.

drove like a madman. An inquest has reopened

:03:51.:03:59.

into the death of a 52-year-old man who was fatally injured

:04:00.:04:02.

at the Leicester factory Tarsem Singh was injured in April

:04:03.:04:04.

last year while he was operating a piece of machinery

:04:05.:04:07.

at Nylacast Engineering Amy Harris has been in court

:04:08.:04:09.

and joins us now live in Leicester. Yes, we heard this morning

:04:10.:04:13.

Tarsem Singh had worked at Nylacast in Thurmaston for

:04:14.:04:23.

more than 20 years. He was described an an excellent

:04:24.:04:27.

employee who was very conscientious and hard-working

:04:28.:04:29.

and loved his job. On Friday April 14 last year,

:04:30.:04:32.

Mr Singh was operating a piece of machinery at the factory called

:04:33.:04:36.

a long length rod machine that moulds plastic into long rods

:04:37.:04:40.

of around three metres in length. Towards the end of his shift, a thud

:04:41.:04:46.

was heard and Mr Singh was seen The court heard how the end cap

:04:47.:04:50.

of the machine was on the floor, and it's thought it had come off

:04:51.:04:55.

and caused injuries The impact was so severe he lost

:04:56.:04:58.

some of his teeth, and his jaw That trauma to the chest, we heard,

:04:59.:05:04.

caused a heart attack, Now we also hear there was no

:05:05.:05:10.

equipment failure or fault found, and no evidence to support a case

:05:11.:05:15.

of corporate manslaughter from the police investigation,

:05:16.:05:17.

which is standard procedure. Leicester Cathedral has been given

:05:18.:05:19.

more than ?3 million pounds of lottery funding towards ambitious

:05:20.:05:22.

plans to fund its restoration The total project will cost

:05:23.:05:25.

more than ?11 million The new heritage centre will provide

:05:26.:05:30.

a permanent exhibition space, a meeting room

:05:31.:05:35.

and toilet facilities. The Cathedral still needs to raise

:05:36.:05:39.

more than ?5.5 million A grandmother who set up

:05:40.:05:42.

a specialist school for children with autism ten years ago says

:05:43.:05:53.

she feels vindicated. Terri Westmoreland opened Hopehouse

:05:54.:05:55.

near Newark because she wasn't satisfied with the education her two

:05:56.:05:57.

severely autistic A lot has changed in ten years.

:05:58.:06:13.

Hopehouse sprang out of the disused hostel at the sheer determination of

:06:14.:06:18.

Terri Westmoreland. She wanted a more tailored provision for her

:06:19.:06:20.

grandson 's and other autistic children. Now it has 25 pupils and

:06:21.:06:28.

42 star. I did it. It has been a long laborious Pask and I remember

:06:29.:06:33.

my husband saying, it is derelict, but you have to do what you have to

:06:34.:06:39.

do. You have to read this bit first. Severe anxiety kept 16-year-old

:06:40.:06:43.

Holly out of school for two years. This is her second year at

:06:44.:06:48.

Hopehouse. It is better because I can crack on my home, I have no

:06:49.:06:52.

pressure of anybody else, there was no iron better the new and bullying

:06:53.:06:57.

or anything like that. Matthew Lowton read and write at the school

:06:58.:07:01.

when he was 17, two years on he is taking five GCSEs including law and

:07:02.:07:07.

he is largely self-taught. He was to study at Cambridge and develop

:07:08.:07:12.

treatments for autism. The secret to this place is the passion, no one is

:07:13.:07:18.

here for the paycheque. Everyone is here for the benefit and help of

:07:19.:07:23.

individuals. Terri Westmoreland encountered a lot of opposition at

:07:24.:07:30.

first,. 100% vindicated because we are teaching a lots of children and

:07:31.:07:35.

we are transforming their lives. It wasn't easy and there have been here

:07:36.:07:41.

a few tears shed by myself, but now we are succeeding which is amazing.

:07:42.:07:46.

In two months' time, a new location centre will be opening, offering a

:07:47.:07:49.

break for parents and a holiday for their children.

:07:50.:07:55.

Time now for the weather forecast. A bell, cloudy and overcast afternoon.

:07:56.:08:05.

Lots of rain to come over the next few hours and plenty to come over

:08:06.:08:09.

the next few days as well. It is quite muggy and close and humid, but

:08:10.:08:13.

that all started fizzle away and clear away as we go through the day

:08:14.:08:17.

on Wednesday. This is what it looks like this afternoon. Plenty of rain

:08:18.:08:23.

knocking about. The majority is light, and is the potential for a

:08:24.:08:28.

couple of slightly heavier pulses. Temperatures around 15, 16 Celsius

:08:29.:08:32.

through the afternoon, just a touch breezy. Tonight, early hours of

:08:33.:08:37.

Tuesday morning, the showery theme continues overnight. Quite a mild

:08:38.:08:42.

night with temperatures not falling far, so in some areas the overnight

:08:43.:08:47.

lows will be no different to the daytime highs, so a warm and close

:08:48.:08:51.

start to the day on Tuesday, plenty of cloud. A few showers, not as many

:08:52.:08:58.

as today, but if you nonetheless, still with taking an umbrella. A

:08:59.:09:03.

touch warmer tomorrow, 17, 18 Celsius, a couple of 20s on a map as

:09:04.:09:09.

well. Not so humid as you go through the day on Wednesday, this area of

:09:10.:09:13.

rain is slowly making its way towards us. It is replaced by a

:09:14.:09:19.

drier picture, a few showers on Thursday and Friday.

:09:20.:09:24.

At the back with East Midlands Today at 6:30pm. Had you can join as then.

:09:25.:09:29.

Have a good afternoon. Goodbye. When it came to my TV habits,

:09:30.:09:46.

I'd watch anything. But now I can sign in online

:09:47.:09:50.

:09:51.:10:02.

:10:03.:10:04.

on subjects I'll like. I can get the seven-day weather

:10:05.:10:06.

forecast from my safe place. THUNDER
