More now on NHS England having to declare a major incident today,

:00:14.:00:17.

after a computer cyber-attack hit its IT systems.

:00:18.:00:20.

Staff in several North West Hospitals found themselves locked

:00:21.:00:22.

out of their computers, after receiving an email

:00:23.:00:24.

Our health correspondent Gill Dummigan reports now from one

:00:25.:00:29.

of the hospitals affected, the Royal Blackburn.

:00:30.:00:33.

Well, it was about 2:30pm this afternoon when we first started

:00:34.:00:36.

The north of the region seems to have been

:00:37.:00:41.

I am outside the Royal Blackburn, one of those hospitals

:00:42.:00:45.

Also it is so Napster hostel but personally, Blackpool,

:00:46.:00:50.

the Royal Lancaster, Kendal, Westmorland General,

:00:51.:00:53.

also Furness General in Harrow, Preston and Chorley,

:00:54.:00:56.

Southport and Ormskirk Hospital and also in Greater Manchester,

:00:57.:00:58.

Wigan, Trafford and Manchester Royal Infirmary as well.

:00:59.:01:04.

Now, of those with A, they are stressing that none

:01:05.:01:07.

What they are saying is that it has to be a genuine

:01:08.:01:11.

Other things that have been affected in the hospitals,

:01:12.:01:14.

things like patient discharge because they couldn't access

:01:15.:01:19.

the records, so the problems there, because of course it is Friday,

:01:20.:01:22.

they are trying to get people home for the weekend.

:01:23.:01:24.

Now, it is not just hospitals which have been affected,

:01:25.:01:27.

I spoke to one GP from Blackburn earlier this evening.

:01:28.:01:32.

Slowly every computer, a lot of messages one by one came

:01:33.:01:38.

They told us we need to be careful about that.

:01:39.:01:46.

And then you can try it, but don't open any other programs.

:01:47.:01:46.

But it is every two seconds popping up and we couldn't see patients.

:01:47.:01:56.

We need to use paper, pen and paper like olden days.

:01:57.:01:59.

But people and patients are really understanding.

:02:00.:02:01.

So, they helped us to run it smoothly until the evening.

:02:02.:02:05.

So, of course people working very hard to sort all this out,

:02:06.:02:07.

but it will be Monday now before we see what the lasting effect is.

:02:08.:02:14.

An inquest jury has found that an 83-year-old man with dementia

:02:15.:02:18.

died in Cheshire after staff at the care home where he was living

:02:19.:02:21.

Police spent six days searching for Roy Tomlinson before

:02:22.:02:26.

finding his body in a building less than half a mile from Brookfield

:02:27.:02:29.

A father, whose son had had to take the decision to put him in secure

:02:30.:02:36.

care after dementia began to affect his behaviour.

:02:37.:02:39.

On 26 January last year, Mr Tomlinson was given the drug

:02:40.:02:41.

He should have been monitored to see how it affected him, but he wasn't.

:02:42.:02:48.

That afternoon Mr Tomlinson walked out of the home.

:02:49.:02:51.

The jury was shown CCTV footage of him wandering

:02:52.:02:54.

Despite a huge police search, it was six days before his body

:02:55.:03:00.

was discovered in a building less than half a mile from the home.

:03:01.:03:04.

He'd died of hypothermia and pneumonia.

:03:05.:03:06.

Returning a narrative conclusion, a jury here in Warrington found

:03:07.:03:09.

there was no adequate supervision of the fire door and side gate

:03:10.:03:14.

at the home and it's likely Mr Tomlinson left through them.

:03:15.:03:17.

They decided that all reasonable efforts were made to find him,

:03:18.:03:22.

but he probably died the day after he was reported missing.

:03:23.:03:25.

You've taken the decision to put him in there.

:03:26.:03:28.

Would I make the same decision again?

:03:29.:03:32.

With hindsight, the answer would be a solid no,

:03:33.:03:34.

but you don't have hindsight when you make those decisions.

:03:35.:03:37.

I think a lot of it is, you know, you have got to rely on the CQC

:03:38.:03:41.

and the governmental agencies to assess the care homes,

:03:42.:03:44.

and the care home owners and operators have got to make sure,

:03:45.:03:49.

Today the owner of the care home offered condolences

:03:50.:03:53.

Mr Tomlinson's son says he's discussing his options

:03:54.:04:06.

If you're a Tranmere Rovers fan you might already have one or two

:04:07.:04:17.

Tranmere are preparing for one of their biggest matches in recent

:04:18.:04:22.

Rovers take on Forest Green Rovers in the National

:04:23.:04:26.

And if they win they'll be promoted back into the Football League.

:04:27.:04:30.

For Tranmere Rovers, their whole season has come

:04:31.:04:40.

What's massive, you hear stories of how far the fans are travelling.

:04:41.:04:48.

The numbers that they have travelled here in, it's huge.

:04:49.:04:52.

So we're delighted that we're able to represent such a fantastic club.

:04:53.:04:56.

It's been a tough few seasons for Rovers, with the end of 94 years

:04:57.:05:00.

Tranmere Rovers is a club that is reinventing itself in many

:05:01.:05:06.

ways, moving forward to this new training ground is part of that.

:05:07.:05:10.

But of course, the main objective is to get back

:05:11.:05:13.

And the whole team is determined to make sure they don't let

:05:14.:05:17.

And for those who've gone through the two recent

:05:18.:05:22.

relegations, the determination is particularly clear.

:05:23.:05:26.

Back-to-back relegations, obviously it wasn't nice for myself

:05:27.:05:28.

But they have come in and turned the upside down.

:05:29.:05:33.

You know, I really hope we do it for them and all the fans.

:05:34.:05:40.

Tranmere booked their place at Wembley with a convincing

:05:41.:05:42.

It's a massive honour, isn't it, to be at Wembley.

:05:43.:05:52.

But very quickly, we'll get ourselves into the game mode

:05:53.:05:57.

and focus on the important thing, and that's trying to win a game

:05:58.:06:01.

And if his team can finish the job at Wembley on Sunday,

:06:02.:06:06.

Tranmere's fans really will start to feel it's the beginning

:06:07.:06:09.

One football match tonight, and Ross Barkley's goal

:06:10.:06:16.

settled Everton's meeting with Watford at Goodison.

:06:17.:06:22.

And in the Rugby League Challenge Cup tonight,

:06:23.:06:24.

That aside from me. Now the weather forecast. We knew today would be the

:06:25.:06:38.

day when things change and it turned out that way. Some pretty good

:06:39.:06:42.

pictures across the north-west of England. But it has been about the

:06:43.:06:47.

showers. In the morning it was longer spells a friend. Drier

:06:48.:06:50.

through the afternoon with some spells of sunshine. But with the

:06:51.:06:55.

vast couple of hours more showers. Some of them will be fairly heavy. I

:06:56.:07:02.

dry spell as they push away to the north-west but in the early hours

:07:03.:07:09.

there will be more, it will not be too welcome through the weekend.

:07:10.:07:14.

Overnight temperatures 11 or 12. Damp tomorrow morning as well but

:07:15.:07:19.

that should push north as the day goes on. Past lunchtime brighter

:07:20.:07:25.

skies. Not a blind date but in the sunshine in the afternoon

:07:26.:07:29.

temperatures won't be too bad, 17 or 18. The

:07:30.:07:38.

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

:07:39.:07:44.

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

:07:45.:07:50.

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

:07:51.:07:55.

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

:07:56.:08:01.

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

:08:02.:08:09.

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

:08:10.:08:14.

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

:08:15.: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 9am. A lot of dry weather.

:08:30.:08:33.

Variable cloud, some

:08:34.:08:34.
