The headlines tonight: and on BBC One we

Sloppy security by a private firm puts thousands of NHS

:00:10.:00:12.

I would be very surprised and shocked that patient records would

:00:13.:00:25.

have been accessed. In an exclusive report,

we reveal how security was breached, A summer of disruption

of up to 10,000 NHS patients were put at risk, because of sloppy

:00:56.:01:11.

security by a private company. Contracts for ultrasound sc`ns

:01:12.:01:14.

across Staffordshire were stspended, after a whistle`blower reve`led

:01:15.:01:17.

information was being stored overseas by the firm,

:01:18.:01:21.

Diagnostic Health. In one breach, a laptop with

:01:22.:01:25.

unencrypted data was stolen. Our health correspondent, Mhchele

:01:26.:01:28.

Paduano, has this exclusive report. Most people go to hospital

:01:29.:01:34.

for ultrasound scans. At the Queen Elizabeth Hosphtal

:01:35.:01:36.

they are checking this patidnt for kidney stones, but for convdnience

:01:37.:01:39.

and to save money, portable scanners are now being used in GP surgeries

:01:40.:01:43.

by private companies. But Birmingham`based Diagnostic

:01:44.:01:48.

Health Systems failed to protect At the Queen Elizabeth Hosphtal

:01:49.:01:50.

in Birmingham, they, like all NHS Using Gmail and the Google

:01:51.:02:09.

Drive would not be allowed. I would be shocked and surprised if

:02:10.:02:27.

patient records had been accessed and given to what is an org`nisation

:02:28.:02:32.

that has an excellent record and reputation for being transp`rent and

:02:33.:02:38.

open, but that is not how NHS patient records should be h`ndled.

:02:39.:02:41.

Diagnostic Health's national headquarters is just

:02:42.:02:43.

a few hundred metres from the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

:02:44.:02:48.

The chief executive of this company said they had been transpardnt with

:02:49.:02:56.

their clients and as such the commissioner was happy for them to

:02:57.:02:59.

see their patients again and the hope that others will follow

:03:00.:03:00.

shortly. The Wolverhampton Road surgdry

:03:01.:03:03.

in Stafford is one of five hn the This lead commissioner accepts that

:03:04.:03:06.

if a whistle`blower hadn't come It is very serious and that is why

:03:07.:03:18.

we have put it hands into the information Commissioner. Hd is on

:03:19.:03:23.

to the fore looking at issuds of the serious nature and we were clear

:03:24.:03:24.

that it has to be sorted. Scanning can reveal intimatd details

:03:25.:03:28.

about our health, but Diagnostic Health didn't want intimate details

:03:29.:03:30.

about its systems made publhc so What do you mean by

:03:31.:03:33.

the public might never have known? The Information Commissioner carried

:03:34.:03:47.

out an audit but unlike with NHS organisations where that has to be

:03:48.:03:51.

made public, private companhes can refuse to make that public `nd that

:03:52.:03:56.

is what this company did. I tried several times via the Commissioner

:03:57.:04:00.

to get that information using the Freedom of Information Act `nd I was

:04:01.:04:03.

told that they would not provided to and if it has not been leakdd, we

:04:04.:04:05.

would not the details. The implications are with the

:04:06.:04:20.

qualified provider. This was not good. This company filled ott the

:04:21.:04:24.

wrong forms, other companies could be in a similar position whhch we

:04:25.:04:28.

will not know about. This is the Stafford area, again, polithcal

:04:29.:04:33.

issues. For the patients, this is stored in the cloud of lying and the

:04:43.:04:47.

No small beer ` it's worth over ?1.5 billion, but with pubs closhng every

:04:48.:04:52.

week, what's the future for our brewing industry?

:04:53.:04:57.

Rail commuters are being warned of a summer of disruption

:04:58.:04:59.

?24 million is being spent to improve services between Redditch

:05:00.:05:03.

and Birmingham but that means shutting

:05:04.:05:05.

And as Giles Latcham reports, there'll be problems

:05:06.:05:09.

They nearly closed it in thd 19 0s, but Alvechurch station

:05:10.:05:17.

in Worcestershire is now at the centre of a big schele to

:05:18.:05:21.

The station itself is being transformed and instead of the

:05:22.:05:24.

existing single track as visualised in this video, there'll be two

:05:25.:05:29.

parallel tracks over a stretch nearly two miles long ` a m`jor

:05:30.:05:33.

investment say Network Rail and testament to the popularity

:05:34.:05:35.

When I started on the railw`y 3 years ago we were managing

:05:36.:05:50.

redundancies and to claim and it is great that we are bringing

:05:51.:05:52.

investment and this is one of the ways to address that, holding our

:05:53.:05:56.

way out of the capacity problems that we were faced with. Today's

:05:57.:06:02.

engineers all a get of grathtude to their four fathers who when they

:06:03.:06:06.

adopt this approach in 1855 and built it wide enough to accommodate

:06:07.:06:12.

two lines, never 160 years on, that foresight is paying off. Residents

:06:13.:06:18.

living nearby say they are paying a price. Tony has a muscle wasting

:06:19.:06:21.

disease and at snag is brokdn by flashing lights and noise of heavy

:06:22.:06:27.

machinery. There is no escape. I spend all day trying to avohd the

:06:28.:06:33.

noise. Earplugs are not sufficient. If you don't out the noise, which is

:06:34.:06:38.

impossible, the vibrations shake the whole house. This will servd

:06:39.:06:44.

Redditch and 40 metres therd is also destruction. The line will be shot

:06:45.:06:52.

from early July until August. It is a great line in direct into my

:06:53.:06:59.

workplace sold to for such ` long time will be a problem. I al hoping

:07:00.:07:02.

things will improve or it whll be impossible for me to get to work.

:07:03.:07:09.

Bus services will replace the trains but there will be plenty to gain in

:07:10.:07:14.

the long term. The benefits for our passengers around the areas will be

:07:15.:07:18.

substantial. There is a minor disruption and I apologise for that

:07:19.:07:21.

but I believe the benefits outweigh the disadvantages. The benefits will

:07:22.:07:26.

be more trains which will bd more punctual. The project will be

:07:27.:07:28.

completed by Christmas. the controversy surrounding an

:07:29.:07:56.

alleged plot by hardline Muslims to take over Birmingham schools was

:07:57.:07:59.

raised in Parliament today. It follows demands for governors at

:08:00.:08:04.

some of the schools to stand down, including Park View Academy. Joanne

:08:05.:08:09.

can tell us more. Most of them want the governing body to they want to

:08:10.:08:14.

form a new one. The governors have told us that the process of school

:08:15.:08:18.

inspections they believe has been politically motivated and they think

:08:19.:08:22.

the governors are not the problem. Michael Gove was asked in the

:08:23.:08:25.

Commons this afternoon whether he would accept that schools mtst be

:08:26.:08:29.

locally accountable. The trtth is that we could action that the last

:08:30.:08:35.

government never took to de`l with extremist schools and we have

:08:36.:08:39.

introduced inspections to ensure that Her Majesty Chief Inspdctor has

:08:40.:08:45.

powers to deal with this. Joanne, more detail has emerged of some of

:08:46.:08:48.

the issues that the headteachers have faced. Yes, this afternoon I

:08:49.:08:54.

went to Anderson Park primary in this Park Hill were 98% of the

:08:55.:09:00.

children are Muslim. This is not a school involved and those

:09:01.:09:04.

said she had to deal with a minority said she had to deal with a minority

:09:05.:09:10.

of serious problems. There was a bullying racism issue involving a

:09:11.:09:14.

white child 18 months ago. When she asked a payment how they wotld have

:09:15.:09:19.

dealt with it, this was his answer. He said to me he would get the white

:09:20.:09:24.

child and put him into a corner with a white desk and a wink chedr and a

:09:25.:09:31.

white teacher and keep an away from everyone else. I said that what he

:09:32.:09:35.

said was very serious and I wrote it down. I'd ask them to imagine if I

:09:36.:09:42.

did what he suggested. If it did not work, I'd asked him what he would

:09:43.:09:47.

suggest. He told me to get rid of the white child. The headte`cher

:09:48.:09:54.

stressed to me that that was a minority view and she had vdry few

:09:55.:09:59.

problems like that. The head of Ofsted, Sir Michael Wilshaw, he has

:10:00.:10:03.

agreed to meet a group of p`rents involved in these corrosion horse

:10:04.:10:10.

allegations, that is, the school that their children attend hs

this natural resource helped the town become

:11:30.:11:32.

the brewing capital of the world. But a few years ago

:11:33.:11:36.

fortunes were changing. The name Bass disappeared

:11:37.:11:40.

from the skyline. New American owners Coors closed

:11:41.:11:43.

the town's brewing museum. But in 2014,

Major investment has just bden announced

And ?7.5 million in a new bottling line at Marston's.

So how is the town coping whth these new investments?

The town's MP says a cut in beer duty is boosting morale

By cutting the duty and givhng certain tree in relation to the ``

If they spot something diffdrent, and item in the wrong place, he can

report it. Will this be the silicone security guard of the futurd? It is

:15:44.:15:47.

not about replacing securitx officers, but he can help them to

make quick decisions about changes in the environment. Bob is `

if he gets stuck in a corner or if someone is blocking him, he will ask

for help, all you have to do is move him out of the way. He is also very

As a talented youngster, Daniel Sturridge joined the

:17:30.:17:31.

And now, he's England's star striker.

:17:32.:17:35.

Sadly, despite scoring, he was unable to mark

:17:36.:17:37.

his mum's birthday with a vhctory against Italy on Saturday.

:17:38.:17:39.

The England goal that briefly raised our hopes of beating Italy

Can the same man repeat the trick against Uruguay this Thursd`y?

:17:46.:17:51.

Celebrated by Daniel Sturridge in Manaus and 5,000 miles away

:17:52.:17:55.

This is where young Daniel grew up as a kid.

:17:56.:18:01.

The old Sturridge family hole is just a couple of miles away

:18:02.:18:04.

And this is the painted goal he used for target

:18:05.:18:09.

practice, honing the skills that would eventually take him all

:18:10.:18:11.

Daniel used to shoot into that goal, it was painted 13 years ago. To go

:18:12.:18:28.

back to the Midlands and whdre he grew up and learn about football, he

:18:29.:18:30.

has especial feeling inside of him and it makes him perform at a higher

:18:31.:18:31.

level. He played in the Premier Le`gue

:18:32.:18:33.

for Derby, Leicester and Wolves Another uncle, Simon, played

:18:34.:18:37.

for Birmingham City and Stoke. And Daniel's dad Michael was signed

in the Sturridge family gends. Daniel has taken it on to that extra

:18:45.:18:56.

level, that higher level, wd knew he had it in him. Everyone in the

:18:57.:19:02.

Academy knew about his potential and for him to achieve that and not get

:19:03.:19:07.

distracted by the things th`t can come around football and kedp his

:19:08.:19:10.

focus, we are all very proud of him. If you're looking

:19:11.:19:14.

for a good omen for Thursdax's big game in Group D, look no further

:19:15.:19:16.

than the London Olympics. Two years ago, Team GB beat Uruguay

:19:17.:19:19.

1`0, and it was Sturridge who scored holiday when Daniel Sturridge scored

:19:20.:19:31.

at the Olympics but if Engl`nd reached the knockout stages, all of

:19:32.:19:35.

the annual's family will be on the first flight to Brazil. We `re all

:19:36.:19:42.

looking forward to this gamd, it is a huge task but we are not worried

:19:43.:19:46.

about any individuals or worrying about Uruguay. We have to worry

:19:47.:19:48.

about what we do as a team. So England's number nine is clearly

:19:49.:19:51.

in good shape And back home, Daniel's uncle Dean

:19:52.:19:53.

and the rest of the Sturridge family are hoping it'll be game, sdt and

:19:54.:19:57.

match against Uruguay on Thtrsday. Well, back home there's been angry

:19:58.:20:03.

reaction from West Bromwich Albion fans to the appointment

:20:04.:20:05.

of their new head coach. The former Preston and Sheffield

:20:06.:20:08.

Wednesday manager Alan Irvine Our reporter Dan Pallett has been

:20:09.:20:10.

looking at some of the reaction Baggies Russ described Irvine's

:20:11.:20:15.

appointment as one He won't be renewing

:20:16.:20:22.

his season ticket. Ryan Hill said he's never bden

:20:23.:20:29.

so disappointed. He says Irvine is a Championship

:20:30.:20:31.

manager ` shocking. Ser Kal thinks Irvine will be

:20:32.:20:37.

gone after just five games. And for Albion fans looking

:20:38.:20:42.

for hope, this from a Sheffheld He says Irvine is

:20:43.:20:43.

the worst manager they've ever had. And Dan's down in the West Lidland

:20:44.:20:52.

studios where they're broadcasting Have those sentiments been dchoed

:20:53.:20:55.

in the calls? They have

:20:56.:20:58.

and the backlash continues. We are live on air at the moment.

:20:59.:21:00.

One person has said it One person has said it is a

:21:01.:21:11.

disgusting appointment. We have not spoken to one support who is happy.

:21:12.:21:18.

One did say that he deserved a chance. I would say that thdy have

:21:19.:21:24.

talked about being shell`shocked, saying it is a disgrace, he will be

:21:25.:21:27.

under a lot of pressure frol the word go to get results. Thex have

:21:28.:21:33.

cited the likes of Alex McLdish David Jones, Malky Mackay, `ll

:21:34.:21:38.

managers that they would have preferred to see at the hawthorns.

:21:39.:21:44.

Tim Sherwood was also mentioned What about the timing of thhs? That

:21:45.:21:50.

is an interesting point. It was announced on Saturday evening just

:21:51.:21:52.

before England played Italy. The first caller said it was silply to

:21:53.:22:01.

bury bad news on the evening of the huge World Cup match. It did not

:22:02.:22:06.

escape the attention of the West Bromwich Albion fans, they have been

:22:07.:22:10.

quick to react with those b`nners. Others have said it lacks

:22:11.:22:14.

conviction, what you think? They could have had Tim Sherwood, it

:22:15.:22:18.

looks like they are bringing him in on the cheap. Looking at Al`n Irvine

:22:19.:22:27.

and Rob Kelly, Robert is an amazing coach, but it is a huge task, who

:22:28.:22:31.

will they be able to attract to the football club? We will hear from the
