Health services in North Yorkshire are suffering major IT issues

:00:11.:00:13.

tonight because of a nationwide cyber attack on the NHS.

:00:14.:00:16.

It's among 39 NHS bodies in England and Scotland affected by malicious

:00:17.:00:22.

software that's locked computers and demanded a ransom

:00:23.:00:24.

York Teaching Hospitals Trust runs hospitals in York

:00:25.:00:30.

and Scarborough and they say they have been significantly

:00:31.:00:32.

affected by this cyber attack, but they are taking steps to keep

:00:33.:00:35.

We know there have been problems with prescriptions and discharge

:00:36.:00:41.

notes and we know that some people have had procedures cancelled.

:00:42.:00:43.

I spoke to one lady who had had her X-ray postponed

:00:44.:00:46.

until Tuesday, and another man who had had an MRI scan cancelled.

:00:47.:00:49.

But patients who have been in the hospital say it's pretty

:00:50.:00:52.

Doctors are making notes with pens and paper they are managing to see

:00:53.:00:56.

We do know that some breast screening clinics that were planned

:00:57.:01:01.

for North Yorkshire for this weekend have been cancelled and those

:01:02.:01:04.

The advice here is only come to A if it is absolutely essential

:01:05.:01:22.

and that they are investigating and taking steps to try

:01:23.:01:23.

Now, would you swap votes with someone living in another area

:01:24.:01:24.

That's what's happening in York, with just four weeks to go before

:01:25.:01:24.

Labour and Liberal Democrat supporters from neighbouring

:01:25.:01:25.

constituencies in the city are making voting deals to try

:01:26.:01:28.

and boost the chances of the pro-European candidates.

:01:29.:01:30.

Stephen and Helen are meeting for the first time.

:01:31.:01:36.

Labour supporter Helen agrees to vote for the Liberal Democrats

:01:37.:01:49.

in the York Outer constituency and Lib Dem supporter Stephen agrees

:01:50.:01:52.

I saw the vote swapper on a political website and signed

:01:53.:02:01.

up for it and thought that is fantastic, I can

:02:02.:02:04.

make my vote count and in this situation we both get what we want.

:02:05.:02:09.

I would never have tactically voted, the only reason I'm doing this

:02:10.:02:14.

is because it is a vote swap and I know you guarantee...

:02:15.:02:19.

Stephen and Helen were brought together by a new website set up

:02:20.:02:25.

by the group York for Europe to try and boost the chances

:02:26.:02:28.

of the pro-European candidates in the city.

:02:29.:02:31.

Well, on this side of the road we are in the York Outer constituency,

:02:32.:02:39.

held by the Conservatives at the 2015 general election,

:02:40.:02:43.

but if you go back to 2010 the Lib Dems came second here,

:02:44.:02:47.

On the other side of the street we are in the York Central

:02:48.:02:54.

constituency held by Labour at the 2015 election,

:02:55.:02:56.

the Conservatives were around 6,500 votes behind but they want this seat

:02:57.:03:00.

But vote swapping is not supported by Labour and the Lib Dems.

:03:01.:03:10.

I would approach it with a great deal of scepticism because one

:03:11.:03:14.

of the great things about having the right to vote, the freedom

:03:15.:03:17.

to vote is you have your own personal conscience and can make

:03:18.:03:20.

up your mind based on lots of different factors.

:03:21.:03:24.

Personally I don't like it very much.

:03:25.:03:26.

I think the idea of voting for the least worst candidate

:03:27.:03:29.

is a kind of contradiction of what democracy should be about.

:03:30.:03:35.

Vote swapping doesn't break the rules, but is it ethical

:03:36.:03:39.

Police who are looking for a man who went missing in York

:03:40.:03:50.

29-year-old Rory Johnson-Hatfield from Skipton vanished

:03:51.:03:53.

Extensive searches were carried out at the time,

:03:54.:04:01.

but specialist teams will be back in the River Ouse from Monday.

:04:02.:04:03.

There are plans for a retail and leisure development on the site

:04:04.:04:06.

of the former Orgreave coking plant in South Yorkshire.

:04:07.:04:09.

Developers Dransfield Properties say the ?50 million project

:04:10.:04:11.

near Rotherham would create 700 new jobs.

:04:12.:04:16.

Paralympic champion Kadeena Cox has collected her MBE

:04:17.:04:18.

The double gold medal winning athlete, who's from Leeds,

:04:19.:04:23.

received the honour from Prince William.

:04:24.:04:27.

She's been recognised for services to athletics.

:04:28.:04:32.

Network Rail has been criticised for felling trees

:04:33.:04:33.

It's nesting season for birds and the RSPB says destroying

:04:34.:04:37.

the nests of any wild birds at this time of year is illegal.

:04:38.:04:40.

The firm says the work's being done for safety reasons.

:04:41.:04:47.

The railway snakes on a single-track past Silkstone Common.

:04:48.:04:50.

Alongside a street of houses by the station, workmen have spent

:04:51.:04:53.

We've had no notification this was going to be taking place,

:04:54.:04:58.

the habitat is being destroyed, we've got bird boxes being taken

:04:59.:05:00.

down by Network Rail and also the shrubbery,

:05:01.:05:03.

they're putting weedkiller down, so there's blackberry bushes,

:05:04.:05:05.

various vegetation that run along the tracks, not just the trees,

:05:06.:05:07.

With concern for spring wildlife, the residents have

:05:08.:05:13.

contacted the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds.

:05:14.:05:15.

In a statement, Network Rail have told us the work that is going

:05:16.:05:37.

on at Silkstone Common, is part of their planned

:05:38.:05:39.

Large bushes or trees can get in the way of the view

:05:40.:05:45.

of the line for the driver, obstructing safety critical signals.

:05:46.:05:47.

They also say, they are fully aware of the act they have to comply

:05:48.:05:50.

with in terms of respecting wildlife and they're confident they have

:05:51.:05:53.

carried out the correct checks and processes.

:05:54.:05:56.

Well, from a parish council point of view, we're really disappointed

:05:57.:05:58.

that Network Rail didn't even have the courtesy to inform

:05:59.:06:02.

us that this work was going to be carried out.

:06:03.:06:05.

The contractors did not want to be filmed.

:06:06.:06:07.

They stopped work while we were there with our cameras.

:06:08.:06:09.

But later, the sound of chainsaws once again mixed

:06:10.:06:12.

In the Challenge Cup quarterfinals it was a comfortable 54-6 victory

:06:13.:06:24.

for Wakefield Trinity against Dewsbury Rams.

:06:25.:06:32.

Good evening. A decent weekend weather-wise with dry and bright

:06:33.:06:43.

weather on both days and most of the rain will fall overnight. A lot of

:06:44.:06:47.

clout out there at the moment and damp and drizzly conditions

:06:48.:06:51.

developing in the Pennine chain and further east via conditions and

:06:52.:06:54.

breaks in the far east, with temperatures dropping no lower than

:06:55.:06:57.

nine or 10 degrees, so another mile like to come. A lot of cloud to come

:06:58.:07:02.

tomorrow and we have drizzle for a time and anywhere could catch the

:07:03.:07:06.

odd shower into the early afternoon. We could see very hit and miss and

:07:07.:07:17.

in the afternoon it brightens up with decent sunny spells developing,

:07:18.:07:19.

especially later romp. Fine evening to come with a high of 17 or 18.

:07:20.:07:22.

Overnight rain into Sunday and then dry and bright start to the day. In

:07:23.:07:25.

the late morning there is the risk of the odd shower but they are very

:07:26.:07:29.

hit and miss and there is a lot of dry weather. I'm next week. I leave

:07:30.:07:32.

you with the summary and the National

:07:33.:07:38.

A bit of a mixed bag earlier on today, some of us were cloudy with

:07:39.:07:45.

rain. This is the view from one of our weather watchers in Cornwall.

:07:46.:07:51.

But in the Highlands of Scotland, it was completely different, find,

:07:52.:07:56.

sunny and warm. The satellite and radar picture shows the variety of

:07:57.:08:01.

weather we have had. It brightened up into the afternoon, early

:08:02.:08:10.

evening. The north-east of Scotland and England have extensive low

:08:11.:08:15.

cloud, missed, fog. If you showers getting into the south coast by the

:08:16.:08:18.

end of the night. It is not a cold night. Into the morning, many

:08:19.:08:24.

Southern counties will do quite well. There is the chance of a

:08:25.:08:29.

shower or two, most of them are gone by

:08:30.:08:31.
