A judge at the Old Bailey has been hearing how a teenager

:00:11.:00:15.

from Hertfordshire earned hundreds of thousands of pounds by developing

:00:16.:00:18.

a hacking programme - which attacked computers systems

:00:19.:00:20.

Adam Mudd admits selling his programme to criminals,

:00:21.:00:29.

while living with his parents in Kings Langley.

:00:30.:00:31.

But there are fears other teenagers may be doing the same thing,

:00:32.:00:33.

A cyber weapon designed to shut down websites

:00:34.:00:51.

It bombarded targets with data using DDOS.

:00:52.:01:01.

Or distributed denial of service attacks.

:01:02.:01:04.

And it was created by Adam Mudd when he was just 16.

:01:05.:01:08.

Internationally, this tool caused a considerable amount of damage.

:01:09.:01:15.

Mudd sold it to other criminals, making

:01:16.:01:17.

But after a massive attack in the US,

:01:18.:01:20.

the software was traced to his home in Hertfordshire.

:01:21.:01:26.

At one point, 7 million DDOS making nearly $400,000.

:01:27.:01:28.

But that's not innocent, that is like an industrial scale for the

:01:29.:01:32.

But are there other Adam Mudds out there?

:01:33.:01:41.

An online investigator shows us forums where

:01:42.:01:44.

Look, here, young people are openly discussing how to use

:01:45.:01:48.

How young are the youngest people on here?

:01:49.:01:56.

Caen I've seen youngsters from the age of 12, 13

:01:57.:01:59.

We found a user who says he is 15 and is happy to talk.

:02:00.:02:04.

I just asked him by text what age he started.

:02:05.:02:08.

The average age of cybercrime suspects is just 17, and

:02:09.:02:24.

police are so concerned they've launched this video.

:02:25.:02:29.

And they've helped put together this tech competition.

:02:30.:02:37.

Here, teenagers learn how to hack and stay

:02:38.:02:39.

on the right side of the

:02:40.:02:40.

If you know what you're doing you'll probably find the bad side a

:02:41.:02:51.

bit more interesting, more challenging, maybe.

:02:52.:02:52.

It does seem quite easy, like hints of what we've

:02:53.:02:54.

There can be a fine line between hacker

:02:55.:02:58.

After today, they should all know the difference.

:02:59.:03:05.

The Labour MP for Slough - for the past 20 years -

:03:06.:03:09.

says she won't be defending her constituency seat in

:03:10.:03:11.

June's General Election - because she's "bored of political

:03:12.:03:14.

squabbles over personality" instead of policy.

:03:15.:03:18.

Fiona MacTaggart has decided to stand down -

:03:19.:03:20.

and she spoke to our Political Correspondent,

:03:21.:03:22.

Karl Mercer about her decision - although she wouldn't quite answer

:03:23.:03:25.

It was one of the defining images of the 1997

:03:26.:03:33.

The so-called Blair Babes paraded with their leader in

:03:34.:03:36.

Tucked at the back, Fiona McTaggart, newly elected in Slough.

:03:37.:03:39.

Nearly 20 years on and she's still the town

:03:40.:03:41.

She's one of two Labour MPs in and around

:03:42.:03:48.

I had to make a decision, I wasn't expecting

:03:49.:03:52.

And I think in politics it's important to hand the

:03:53.:04:02.

baton on when you're still good at it, still

:04:03.:04:04.

difference, rather than when you've completely run out of steam.

:04:05.:04:08.

She'll carry on supporting causes close to her

:04:09.:04:13.

heart, but says the political world is and what it used to be.

:04:14.:04:16.

I'm bored of bickering about personalities

:04:17.:04:18.

because I think politics should be about ideas and policy.

:04:19.:04:20.

It's about, you know, do you like him?

:04:21.:04:27.

You know, it's like in the playground.

:04:28.:04:30.

It's like childhood squabbles and frankly that's boring.

:04:31.:04:34.

She's been critical of Jeremy Corbyn's leadership.

:04:35.:04:35.

Many people believe that part of the reason

:04:36.:04:37.

I have, I have well-documented run-ins with more

:04:38.:04:45.

than one leader of the Labour Party, let's be utterly honest.

:04:46.:04:48.

So, you know, you can't say I'm going

:04:49.:04:50.

I publicly said that I thought that Gordon Brown

:04:51.:04:53.

Look into your crystal ball, Fiona, and

:04:54.:04:56.

tell me what the state of the country is going to be and who is

:04:57.:05:00.

I've stopped making political predictions

:05:01.:05:04.

along time ago, when I realised I'd never lost a political bet.

:05:05.:05:07.

I thought, if I carry on making them,

:05:08.:05:09.

You are asking me to make a prediction.

:05:10.:05:18.

I've just told you I'm not making a prediction.

:05:19.:05:20.

I believe that the best option for Britain is a Labour

:05:21.:05:22.

We'll find out if the voters agree on June the 9th.

:05:23.:05:36.

A schoolboy on work experience at Barts Hospital -

:05:37.:05:39.

has come-up with an award winning idea, to save victims

:05:40.:05:42.

Ben Wald thought it'd be useful to insert a unique 'code'

:05:43.:05:48.

into the chest of patients - so in future - doctors

:05:49.:05:51.

would immediately have life saving information at their finger tips,

:05:52.:05:56.

without having to first wait for a patient's complete

:05:57.:05:58.

Just lucky enough to ask the right question at the right time, which

:05:59.:06:08.

was whether you could use the surgical wires, external wires used

:06:09.:06:15.

to close the breast plate after bypass surgery, and sculpt them into

:06:16.:06:18.

letters to leave an imprint inside the patient as to what had been done

:06:19.:06:22.

during surgery. What an incredible achievement. It is the London

:06:23.:06:28.

Marathon this coming Sunday, thousands of people wondering what

:06:29.:06:31.

the weather has in store. Hoping it's not going to be too warm,

:06:32.:06:37.

Sarah. It's going to be quite chilly bursting on Sunday. Runners and

:06:38.:06:40.

spectators might want to wrap up first thing but it'll turn warmer by

:06:41.:06:44.

the afternoon on Sunday and likely to stay dry. That is the theme

:06:45.:06:48.

through tomorrow and much of the weekend. Things largely dry with

:06:49.:06:53.

some sunshine. At the moment, quite a lot of cloud, which is big enough

:06:54.:06:57.

for the odd spot of light drizzle overnight and the early hours. It

:06:58.:07:02.

should be a frost free morning, not as cold as the morning to be seen.

:07:03.:07:09.

The odd spot of light rain here and there but most places are avoiding.

:07:10.:07:13.

By the afternoon more in the way of sunshine. Top temperatures around

:07:14.:07:18.

about 15 degrees or so. For Sunday a chilly start of the morning, but

:07:19.:07:22.

things are looking dry with some sunshine and by the afternoon those

:07:23.:07:26.

temperatures will be up there into the mid-teens. Largely dry for the

:07:27.:07:30.

marathon. Here is the outlook for the weather

:07:31.:07:32.

marathon. Here is the outlook for the weather for the next few days

:07:33.:07:35.

and Helen Willetts has the National forecast.

:07:36.:07:41.

While unusual to see snow in May, it will be a shock to the system. We've

:07:42.:07:51.

seen some interesting contrast. 19 degrees cost is in Scotland in the

:07:52.:07:54.

sunshine today. In the sunshine only 11. The differences we are behind a

:07:55.:08:02.

cold weather front. Seeing a stepped down in temperatures. The cold air

:08:03.:08:05.

filtering sound so there will be a widespread ground frost across the

:08:06.:08:09.

country. The week weather front still with us so we could cheat

:08:10.:08:16.

patchy mist and fog. The best chance of

:08:17.:08:18.
