:00:24.:00:25.

by the current cyber attack, but BBC London has seen papers

:02:01.:02:04.

is likely to fail and they warned it is likely to result in catastrophic

:02:05.:02:10.

implications for the trust. There is a real risk that it could go wrong.

:02:11.:02:16.

They told us they are aware of the risks and have taken steps to reduce

:02:17.:02:25.

the load on the systems. They say they are developing a long-term

:02:26.:02:29.

strategy to deliver improvements to the IT systems. The Home Secretary

:02:30.:02:36.

says there is always more to be done to protect us against computer

A boy from Afghanistan - found alone at Heathrow airport -

:03:03.:03:08.

has been ordered into 'council care' by a High Court judge

:03:09.:03:10.

The youngster, thought to be aged about 12,

:03:11.:03:12.

said his travel had been "planned" by his mother - who thought

:03:13.:03:15.

he'd have a "better and safer" life in Britain.

:03:16.:03:21.

The Home Office will decide on his immigration status.

Asian men - and the issues they face over identity and a belief that

:04:25.:04:39.

other reason. It is important to be proud of the person you are. I am

:04:40.:04:49.
