Hello, first tonight - at least four hospitals in this

:00:10.:00:11.

region tell us they have been victims of the cyber attack

:00:12.:00:14.

A number of others have taken precautions to try to protect

:00:15.:00:19.

Well, our reporter Stuart Ratcliffe has the latest on how

:00:20.:00:24.

The first hospital to announce they had problems was the list in

:00:25.:00:36.

Stevenage and the QE2 in the Wellens and then later on we also had

:00:37.:00:41.

capturing and Northampton were also having problems with their IT

:00:42.:00:47.

systems. It seems at 11:30am the Lister and QE2 suspected an attack

:00:48.:00:51.

and decided to close their entire computer systems down to protect

:00:52.:00:56.

them. That meant they had to cancel all nonemergency appointments and

:00:57.:00:59.

they were also telling patients not to go to accident-macro unless

:01:00.:01:03.

necessary. Similar message -- measures were put in Kettering but

:01:04.:01:08.

they have not confirmed an attack actually took place there. We

:01:09.:01:14.

understand the suspected cyber attacks have not compromised any

:01:15.:01:18.

confidential patient details. Other hospitals in the region have not

:01:19.:01:21.

been affected but some of close their e-mail systems as a precaution

:01:22.:01:27.

and Peterborough City Hospital's website has been taken off-line to

:01:28.:01:32.

protect it. It has been a ransomware cyber attack and tonight the cyber

:01:33.:01:37.

crime Centre at Cambridge told us back in March Microsoft issued an

:01:38.:01:42.

emergency warning their systems could be bombed rubble to attack.

:01:43.:01:46.

In other news - An inquest jury has concluded that a string of failures

:01:47.:01:46.

contributed to the death of a prisoner at Woodhill

:01:47.:01:49.

45-year-old Michael Cameron was found hanging in his cell,

:01:50.:01:52.

He's one of 18 prisoners who've taken their own lives there,

:01:53.:01:57.

Michael Cameron had been charged with serious offences,

:01:58.:02:14.

He was dependent on alcohol and known to take drugs.

:02:15.:02:17.

The inquest heard that, while in police custody,

:02:18.:02:21.

He was assessed as being at very high risk of self harm.

:02:22.:02:26.

When he was transferred to Woodhill prison, we heard Michael Cameron

:02:27.:02:29.

He was given a 2-3-minute mental-health screening but never

:02:30.:02:34.

referred for an urgent mental health review.

:02:35.:02:38.

I think a mental health assessment should have been done for him.

:02:39.:02:43.

If he seen a doctor when he was there, he never saw a doctor,

:02:44.:02:46.

I think Michael would still be with us today.

:02:47.:02:50.

I'm so angry and nothing will bring Michael back.

:02:51.:02:54.

The jury was told that, while at Woodhill prison,

:02:55.:02:57.

razor blades were found in his cell and handed in to staff

:02:58.:03:00.

Prescription medication was not always given because staff

:03:01.:03:05.

were concerned he was under the influence of drugs.

:03:06.:03:09.

And on the day he was found hanged, his cell-mate was moved,

:03:10.:03:12.

The inquest heard that, on that day, Michael Cameron should have been

:03:13.:03:17.

But he was found hanging 36 minutes after his last check.

:03:18.:03:23.

He died at Milton Keynes Hospital two days after being found

:03:24.:03:27.

in his cell, having suffered severe brain damage.

:03:28.:03:30.

Today, the jury found there was a failure to carry out

:03:31.:03:33.

Each of these failures contributed to his death.

:03:34.:03:38.

Michael is the 14th self-inflicted death in the run of 18 between May

:03:39.:03:47.

It is dispiriting to ask the same questions, the same witnesses

:03:48.:03:55.

and have the same and have the same answers, and see the

:03:56.:04:00.

It was the conclusion Michael's mother had been hoping

:04:01.:04:06.

for but she said nothing will bring him back.

:04:07.:04:12.

A judicial review looking at a high rate of deaths is concluding later

:04:13.:04:18.

this month but the prison itself says there have been no

:04:19.:04:22.

self-inflicted deaths at the prison this year saying changes have all

:04:23.:04:26.

ready been made based on recommendations from the prison

:04:27.:04:27.

ombudsman. Well earlier I spoke to Mark Day

:04:28.:04:29.

of the Prison Reform Trust. I asked him how widespread

:04:30.:04:32.

the problem of self-harm and suicide The statistics show that 47%

:04:33.:04:35.

of women and 21% of men in prison have attempted suicide at some point

:04:36.:04:45.

in their life and this compares to just 6%

:04:46.:04:50.

of the general population. This is a worrying trend

:04:51.:04:55.

and the number of suicides you say The causes are complex

:04:56.:04:57.

and it is important to pay attention to the particular circumstances

:04:58.:05:05.

of individual cases but we can certainly point to the decline

:05:06.:05:09.

in the numbers of staff, this comes on top of systematic

:05:10.:05:14.

overcrowding in the estate, we are at 20,000 people currently

:05:15.:05:20.

housed in conditions overcrowded and we also have this very high

:05:21.:05:24.

level of vulnerability Let's look specifically at Woodhill

:05:25.:05:27.

prison, what are your concerns Well, a series of inquests

:05:28.:05:33.

and prison and probation ombudsman reports have shown a failure

:05:34.:05:41.

of the establishment to learn the lessons of previous deaths

:05:42.:05:47.

and implement the recommendations of the inquests and the ombudsman

:05:48.:05:51.

so there seems to be particular circumstances at Woodhill which have

:05:52.:05:54.

contributed to this alarming level A crackdown has been launched

:05:55.:05:57.

on anti-social behaviour Eighty pound on the spot

:05:58.:06:05.

fines can be issued - for infringements including -

:06:06.:06:10.

riding on pavements It's part of efforts to make town

:06:11.:06:11.

centres more user-friendly. In rugby, Northampton Saints

:06:12.:06:19.

could still qualify for next season's European Champions Cup

:06:20.:06:21.

after Gloucester lost the European Challenge Cup final

:06:22.:06:23.

tonight to Stade Francais, It means Saints are now

:06:24.:06:27.

into a play-off where they'll face Conaught in the semi-finals next

:06:28.:06:32.

weekend at Franklin's Gardens. Time for a look at the weather now -

:06:33.:06:37.

and after a chilly week and rain today, let's hope it's

:06:38.:06:41.

a good weekend ahead. A largely dry night with some clear

:06:42.:06:50.

spells and a few isolated showers. For most of us, we stay in double

:06:51.:06:56.

figures or bro spots could drop down to eight or nine Celsius. Saturday,

:06:57.:06:59.

bright or sunny spells but a scattering of showers but I do not

:07:00.:07:02.

think the showers will be for everyone but one or two could be on

:07:03.:07:07.

the sharp side. In the best of the sunshine, temperatures up to 20 when

:07:08.:07:13.

Celsius. Saturday night into Sunday, a cold front whips through producing

:07:14.:07:16.

a couple of millimetres of rain but it should be gone by Sunday morning

:07:17.:07:21.

leaving us with a day of sunshine and showers and some showers could

:07:22.:07:26.

be on the heavy side. In a moment, the national forecast but I did with

:07:27.:07:30.

the Outlook. Monday, rain in the morning and try and bright, Tuesday

:07:31.:07:32.

dry but largely cloudy. A bit of a mixed bag earlier on

:07:33.:07:42.

today, some of us were cloudy with rain. This is the view from one of

:07:43.:07:48.

our weather watchers in Cornwall. But in the Highlands of Scotland, it

:07:49.:07:52.

was completely different, find, sunny and warm. The satellite and

:07:53.:07:57.

radar picture shows the variety of weather we have

:07:58.:07:58.
