Appointments and planned operations due to take place tomorrow have been

:00:12.:00:15.

cancelled at two of the region's hospitals affected

:00:16.:00:17.

There'll be no surgery or clinic appointments

:00:18.:00:20.

at the James Paget in Gorleston, and Colchester Hospital has

:00:21.:00:23.

Computer systems at Broomfield in Chelmsford have also

:00:24.:00:25.

been hit by the virus, which encrypts files and demands

:00:26.:00:28.

From the outside, all appeared calm at Colchester Hospital this

:00:29.:00:41.

afternoon, but staff have been using pen and paper,

:00:42.:00:43.

and the hospital did cancel some operations.

:00:44.:00:44.

It's also asked people not to use A unless absolutely necessary.

:00:45.:00:54.

We have contingency plans for these major events,

:00:55.:00:56.

As you say, Sally, we've had to cancel some non-elective work.

:00:57.:01:08.

We will bring those patients back in a timely manner,

:01:09.:01:09.

but it's a credit to the staff and indeed to the patience

:01:10.:01:17.

of our patients that we've been able to manage this crisis

:01:18.:01:17.

Some patients we spoke to were annoyed but most

:01:18.:01:26.

If it's x-rays or breakages or what have you, they're

:01:27.:01:28.

going to send you home, but if it's only minor things

:01:29.:01:31.

But we sat in the waiting room for another 15, 20 minutes,

:01:32.:01:35.

and they came out and said "We're very sorry," and they just

:01:36.:01:38.

Basically now, patients' details can be hacked, can't they? Sold.

:01:39.:01:46.

There is no evidence at this stage that there's been any compromise

:01:47.:01:47.

of patient sensitive data so we will be looking as we recover

:01:48.:01:49.

over the weekend to be absolutely sure of that.

:01:50.:01:52.

Tonight the James Paget Hospital at Gorleston, also hit

:01:53.:01:54.

by the cyber attack, told us there will be no surgery

:01:55.:01:57.

Hospital staff are working without computers to contact

:01:58.:02:00.

patients with appointments to arrange new dates.

:02:01.:02:12.

The Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt has been at the Princess Alexandra

:02:13.:02:15.

During his visit, he promised to make the building

:02:16.:02:18.

The A department was originally designed for 60,000 people but now

:02:19.:02:30.

This from our Health Reporter, Nikki Fox.

:02:31.:02:33.

A hospital described by its previous chief executive

:02:34.:02:34.

Built in the '60s, staff even complained about raw sewage

:02:35.:02:38.

Campaigning is not allowed within the hospital,

:02:39.:02:49.

so the photocall took place outside the local chemist.

:02:50.:02:51.

There is a real need for a new hospital here.

:02:52.:02:53.

I want to make a commitment now because, you know,

:02:54.:02:56.

it depends on future funding settlements but what I'd say

:02:57.:02:59.

is that it would be a high priority for a future

:03:00.:03:01.

So, just how badly does Harlow need a new hospital?

:03:02.:03:07.

In December it was the fullest in England, up to 100 beds short.

:03:08.:03:19.

A attendances rose by 27% in five years.

:03:20.:03:21.

And the maintenance backlog, ?50 million.

:03:22.:03:23.

It's about finding the right site for the hospital,

:03:24.:03:25.

it's about getting the funding, which will need to come not just

:03:26.:03:28.

from developers but also from central government.

:03:29.:03:34.

Part of the problem is the growing population.

:03:35.:03:36.

Designed for 60,000, 85,000 now live there.

:03:37.:03:41.

It's something we pointed out here in Harlow from Ukip.

:03:42.:03:43.

If we stopped giving so much money to the EU,

:03:44.:03:46.

within a couple of weeks we would have enough money

:03:47.:03:51.

to build the new hospital that we need here in Harlow.

:03:52.:03:54.

The Green Party is keen on introducing an NHS reinstatement

:03:55.:03:57.

act, that would repeal the health and social care bill introduced

:03:58.:04:00.

in 2012 because ultimately what we think is that the NHS does

:04:01.:04:03.

need more funding, it does need support, but it doesn't need that

:04:04.:04:06.

The Liberal Democrat candidate wasn't available but the party says

:04:07.:04:11.

1p on income tax will increase the NHS budget.

:04:12.:04:15.

For the Health Secretary, no time to wait around, especially

:04:16.:04:19.

And no promises, just a pledge to look at a new hospital again.

:04:20.:04:28.

There are serious doubts tonight whether a multi-million pound

:04:29.:04:33.

project in Harwich to build a replica of the famous 16th Century

:04:34.:04:36.

ship, the Mayflower, will ever be completed.

:04:37.:04:37.

It was described as a "brilliant audacious project" by

:04:38.:04:40.

Sir Richard Branson and has been mainly funded by public money.

:04:41.:04:51.

The Harwich Mayflower Project set out to raise ?4 million

:04:52.:04:54.

Forget Plymouth - the original ship was actually built in Harwich.

:04:55.:04:59.

Local captain Christopher Jones and his crew took the pilgrims

:05:00.:05:01.

With your valued support, a traditional wooden boat-building

:05:02.:05:08.

A promotional video helped raise ?30,000 from crowdfunding.

:05:09.:05:18.

The aim - to train a new generation of wooden ship-builders in the town.

:05:19.:05:22.

But of the replica, this is all there is to see so far.

:05:23.:05:26.

The keel laid, the stern post, and just one of the ribs in place.

:05:27.:05:29.

Robert is one of a group who call themselves

:05:30.:05:32.

He and other members of his family made ?30 donations to the project.

:05:33.:05:36.

He believes the charity is misleading the public.

:05:37.:05:38.

We think they must stop living in a fantasy world and telling

:05:39.:05:44.

No building has taken place for five years.

:05:45.:05:51.

Graham Richardson is general manager of the project and he's

:05:52.:05:53.

He showed me the new visitor centre, where local school children will

:05:54.:05:58.

The once almost derelict railway station is being

:05:59.:06:06.

converted into a transport and maritime museum.

:06:07.:06:08.

He believes the site will become a major attraction but knows

:06:09.:06:11.

Funding has been difficult, I will agree, but we are

:06:12.:06:17.

We have got a bid in with the Heritage Lottery at the moment.

:06:18.:06:21.

You are still determined this ship will be built?

:06:22.:06:24.

We are. Yes, we're positive.

:06:25.:06:25.

The Charity Commission says concerns have been raised about progress,

:06:26.:06:27.

but it was satisfied with the role of the trustees.

:06:28.:06:31.

With ?1.4 million spent so far, some worry this scale model will be

:06:32.:06:34.

the only Mayflower produced at these workshops.

:06:35.:06:42.

Those are your top stories tonight but I'll leave you with the weather.

:06:43.:06:45.

Tonight it will be largely dry with some clear spells and a few

:06:46.:06:57.

scattered showers. A mild night, most stay in double figures although

:06:58.:07:03.

some spots could drop to eight Celsius. On Saturday, the day of

:07:04.:07:08.

sunny and bright spells and a few showers. Some could be on the heavy

:07:09.:07:15.

side. Temperatures could reach 21 Celsius. On Sunday this cold front

:07:16.:07:20.

rattling through, producing a few millimetres of rain overnight, but

:07:21.:07:25.

that should be gone by the morning, then another day of sunshine and

:07:26.:07:29.

showers. In a moment the national forecast but I will leave you with

:07:30.:07:31.

the outlook. A bit of a mixed bag earlier on

:07:32.: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.
