In Look East tonight: A cyber crime wave as more of us fall for scams,

:00:00.:00:00.

police look for new ways to tackle it.

:00:00.:00:00.

Vacancies go unfilled amid warnings of bigger class sizes.

:00:07.:00:19.

Handful baking dish and is with the risk of ice, I have all the details

:00:20.:00:23.

later. More and more of us

:00:24.:00:26.

are falling for scams online - with Cybercrime costing the UK

:00:27.:00:30.

economy billions of pounds. Police forces in Bedfordshire

:00:31.:00:32.

and Cambridgeshire have reported huge rises in the number of cases

:00:33.:00:37.

in the past year. Anna Todd has been finding

:00:38.:00:39.

out how the criminals operate and who's

:00:40.:00:41.

is most vulnerable. The internet has helped this small

:00:42.:00:45.

company go from strength to strength, but it has also had

:00:46.:00:48.

a more sinister impact. Cybercriminals sent

:00:49.:00:52.

an e-mail purporting to be from the MD, asking an employee

:00:53.:00:55.

to make a bank transfer. And she said to me, I have

:00:56.:00:59.

done the transaction you have asked me to do, but they

:01:00.:01:02.

asked for a long reference number and I couldn't fit it

:01:03.:01:05.

all in, so I condensed the reference number

:01:06.:01:08.

and it was that point, I said,

:01:09.:01:09.

what are you talking about? At that point, obviously,

:01:10.:01:11.

she went white and I did the same, we called

:01:12.:01:14.

the bank straightaway. In Bedfordshire in 2015,

:01:15.:01:18.

almost 1200 were reported. They were 370 reports

:01:19.:01:27.

the following year. They target both randomly

:01:28.:01:46.

and specifically. One method is ransomware,

:01:47.:01:49.

where victims believe they have to pay a fine,

:01:50.:01:51.

perhaps to a seemingly legitimate It is possible that big

:01:52.:01:54.

organisations are now treating this type of ransomware as the cost

:01:55.:02:02.

of doing business, and if you consider that the average

:02:03.:02:04.

amount they are paying out is around ?13,000,

:02:05.:02:07.

for big organisations it could be ?25,000, this is

:02:08.:02:09.

clearly a big problem. Police nationwide say this

:02:10.:02:23.

is a modern-day crime. We have recently held

:02:24.:02:25.

a conference with a crime unit who have got departments

:02:26.:02:26.

specifically dedicated to But some of their stats

:02:27.:02:29.

are really worrying. They said they had seen over

:02:30.:02:32.

2000 hacks on Eastern region companies this month, and

:02:33.:02:34.

that is probably not all of them, because a lot of them

:02:35.:02:37.

will not have been reported. This Cambridgeshire

:02:38.:02:44.

company was lucky. But they say that the criminals

:02:45.:02:46.

continue to try their luck So what can be done to stay one step

:02:47.:02:50.

ahead of the hackers? Well our reporter Waseem Mirza has

:02:51.:03:00.

been looking at the problem Well tonight, cyber crime experts

:03:01.:03:02.

from across the region have been meeting in Cambridge to try

:03:03.:03:07.

and find news ways of We spoke to the Police

:03:08.:03:10.

and Crime Commissioner for Cambridgeshire Jason Ablewhite

:03:11.:03:13.

who said the figures are just We are driving this agenda forward,

:03:14.:03:24.

we are getting those key messages out on how people can protect

:03:25.:03:29.

themselves by all of the sort of methods that we use all the time,

:03:30.:03:34.

and frankly I think going forward this is going to be seen as probably

:03:35.:03:40.

the biggest growth in any crime in a generation.

:03:41.:03:42.

When it comes to fighting back - there is the feeling that perhaps

:03:43.:03:45.

it's not just technology alone that could eliminate the problem.

:03:46.:03:47.

There are those like the Bedfordshire based

:03:48.:03:49.

security group Layer8 - who believe people are the best form

:03:50.:03:51.

of defence against hackers and online attacks.

:03:52.:03:57.

To keep up with these vulnerabilities what we need to do

:03:58.:04:06.

is educate on the types of emotions that perhaps the tactics will play

:04:07.:04:10.

to give people the ability to deal with any kind of crime that comes

:04:11.:04:11.

their way. Well there's a number

:04:12.:04:12.

of things which can be done Start by changing your password

:04:13.:04:15.

every one to two months. Use a completely different

:04:16.:04:17.

password for every website you shop, Enable what's called

:04:18.:04:20.

"2-step verification". It's like having another layer

:04:21.:04:22.

on top of your password. Make sure you never

:04:23.:04:26.

reveal your password to anyone. And strengthen your existing

:04:27.:04:29.

password with special characters Now you can get more advice

:04:30.:04:31.

on all this and more That's the warning from some

:04:32.:04:42.

Northamptonshire Headteachers. in the county since 2010,

:04:43.:04:53.

but the number of teachers Emma is a trainee, teaching others

:04:54.:05:20.

by cloning herself. Not enough other people want to do what she is doing.

:05:21.:05:24.

I think it is probably one of the most rewarding and challenging

:05:25.:05:28.

professions there is that it is definitely worth it, if you're

:05:29.:05:32.

willing to commit, give a lot of time to something you love then it

:05:33.:05:37.

is something you should consider. Head teachers say they are

:05:38.:05:40.

struggling to recruit and that is causing some to worry about the

:05:41.:05:44.

future. We may not have a teacher for a class of students and you may

:05:45.:05:48.

have to think very carefully about how you arrange that, it might be

:05:49.:05:52.

having to have larger class sizes, it might be the headteachers

:05:53.:05:58.

teaching for part of that and just things around that. I hope it will

:05:59.:06:02.

not happen. Try and stop it happening today but in to ensure

:06:03.:06:06.

candy cans or wants the promotional video and website to attract more

:06:07.:06:12.

people to the profession. There are currently 84 teacher vacancies in

:06:13.:06:15.

Northamptonshire for classrooms like this but the county council say that

:06:16.:06:18.

because of a growing population over the next five years 33 new schools

:06:19.:06:23.

will be needed and that is hundreds more teachers. We are working very

:06:24.:06:28.

hard to promote the best of what we have here, we have good quality

:06:29.:06:33.

housing, relatively low-cost compare to the south-east for example. We

:06:34.:06:37.

have a fantastic cultural offer and excellent tones are working hard to

:06:38.:06:44.

develop what they offer. The stakes are high, at the school in

:06:45.:06:46.

Wellingborough they have previously advertised one teaching job and

:06:47.:06:51.

doubly applied. Yellow might if I am being honest I think that the job is

:06:52.:06:53.

incredibly challenging, it is very incredibly challenging, it is very

:06:54.:06:57.

hard work, I have seen my young teachers particularly working long

:06:58.:07:02.

hours, all teachers work long hours but actually there isn't an

:07:03.:07:06.

appreciation amongst a lot of the public on how demanding the role is.

:07:07.:07:11.

It is a commitment, you have to be prepared to work late nights and on

:07:12.:07:15.

Sundays, have to be prepared to do lots of different things for the

:07:16.:07:18.

school and if you have that commitment and that drive and

:07:19.:07:20.

especially if you have the passion for your subject then you absolutely

:07:21.:07:26.

love it. More people will now have to learn to love teaching if the

:07:27.:07:29.

growing number of classrooms are going to be filled.

:07:30.:07:32.

Next, as part of our series celebrating 50 years

:07:33.:07:35.

of Milton Keynes, today we're looking at its vibrant arts scene -

:07:36.:07:37.

as the town bids to become the European Capital

:07:38.:07:40.

Around the many corners of Milton Keynes we will find public statues

:07:41.:07:57.

and food Subs: -- fluid sculptors, like this horse standing outside a

:07:58.:08:02.

bank with the same logo. This is shopping centre installation

:08:03.:08:04.

celebrates the accessible art that has always been at the heart of the

:08:05.:08:08.

town. Art is always about thinking about what might come next, Milton

:08:09.:08:14.

Keynes is a town this. Process, how to construct a space that will work

:08:15.:08:18.

in 50 years and 100 years, so it makes sense that the integrated

:08:24.:08:26.

performed here. And cable bathing in the heyday of stadium tours. From

:08:27.:08:34.

pop royalty to Jazz royalty, Sir John Dankworth and Dame Cleo Laine

:08:35.:08:38.

founded the stables at live and on, a melting pot for all types of

:08:39.:08:44.

music. But they had plenty of Milton Keynes was about to be developed

:08:45.:08:48.

when they bought the real property. At first they were very all know we

:08:49.:08:52.

did not want this but then my dad really grew to love Milton Keynes

:08:53.:08:59.

and my mum, two, we have been very supportive of the stables and of

:09:00.:09:03.

course now the stables is a big touring venue. Stadium MK is also

:09:04.:09:08.

developing as a concert venue, future is thriving and MK gallery is

:09:09.:09:11.

undergoing a major expansion. The A6 in Northamptonshire

:09:12.:09:13.

will remain closed between Rothwell and Desborough until the end of

:09:14.:09:15.

February. The road was shut last week

:09:16.:09:17.

following the discovery Now Northamptonshire Highways

:09:18.:09:19.

say the issue is "more significant" than first thought,

:09:20.:09:22.

and poses a potential safety risk. A bit of football finally -

:09:23.:09:27.

and Peterborough United lost at Oldham Athletic

:09:28.:09:29.

in the Skybet League 1 tonight. The final score in the North West

:09:30.:09:32.

1-0 Oldham's winner a penalty They'll now play Yeovil Town

:09:33.:09:35.

in the quarter final of the Checkatrade Trophy on Tuesday

:09:36.:09:48.

the 7th of February. And more freezing temperature ahead

:09:49.:09:52.

tonight - so let's get the weather now with Alex,

:09:53.:09:54.

but from me and the rest Good evening, the visibility

attraction. This file is likely to become quite expensive as we go

:10:20.:10:22.

through the night, most areas are likely to be affected. Temperatures

:10:23.:10:26.

will be a degree or two below freezing for many places, perhaps

:10:27.:10:30.

below in those frosty prone areas. We start the day on a cold frosty

not, high-pressure starting to move eastwards but still a very cool

:10:37.:10:38.

picture across the region and compare it with the relatively it

:10:39.:10:42.

will be cloudy after tomorrow so it will feel colder. That missed and

fog lifting through the morning into low-level clouds, perhaps just the

:10:47.:10:51.

odd bright spell through much of the day and it is expected to save other

overcast with highs of 4 degrees. The National weather coming up that

then milder again come the weekend. This shot taken earlier by a weather

:11:25.:11:29.

hours in many south-eastern parts of England.

:11:30.:11:34.

Much, much milder, further north and west. Let's concentrate on that
