6:30 pm
would not dream of. many congratulations to him and all of his family. thank you for your company. now the weather with darren bent. hello, there is some welcome rain for farmers and growers on the way over the week ahead and initially it is coming from this area of low pressure that is heading from a long way south towards the uk and it is going to draw up some warm air which holds some moisture, hence the chance of rain. the cloud is on its way up from the south—west already. this band of cloud brought a band of rain earlier on. that has cleared away and we have seen showers and sunshine. the showers will fade away this evening and will be clear for good parts of the night across eastern areas, but out towards the west thickening cloud with that area of low pressure approaching and some wind and rain on the way. ahead of that temperatures are eight or nine degrees. heading into monday morning and we have got the rain beginning to spill its way in across much of scotland for the rush hour. quite wet across the south—west, argyll and bute, brighter
6:31 pm
towards the north of scotland. still largely dry towards the east of the pennines, but heavy rain for cumbria and lancashire. a wet start for northern ireland as well. outbreaks of rain coming into wales, always wetter in the west of wales, and we have got this rain across southern england just beginning to arrive in the london area. much of eastern england starting dry, perhaps some hazy sunshine, but it will be thickening and we will see some outbreaks of rain pushing into eastern areas as well. the wettest weather will always be over the hills in the west, the south—west of scotland, north—west england and west wales. not much rain arriving in the south east and the rain easing off during the afternoon. we may get some brightness, a bit of sunshine to the east on high ground, but even with the cloud it is going to be quite a warm day with temperatures at 16 or 17. the first dose of rain comes on that whether there and we get another pulse of heavy rain returning overnight and then this weather front is pretty much stuck across the uk but where is difficult to say. at the moment it looks like it will be more across yorkshire down to wales and the south—west of england where we will see
6:32 pm
some rain at times. north of that blustery winds and bands of rather sharp showers. east anglia and the south east of england may be dry and we have got some warm and muggy air here. temperatures could be higher than 22, but not particularly cold elsewhere either. 17 or 18 typically. but on wednesday we see the rain down across east anglia and the south east of england and this will be the wettest day of the week for this part of the uk. some sunshine follows on and some blustery showers in the north—west and temperatures begin to drop away. the last of the warm and humid air gets pushed away into europe and instead cooler air is heading our way with sunshine and showers. a warning that the cyber attack that hit the nhs on friday is escalating. the head of europol says a new version of the ransomware
6:33 pm
is being circulated. we've never seen anything like this, unprecedented on this scale. the latest numbers we're seeing, over 200,000 victims in over 150 countries. so clearly a global phenomenon. we'll be looking at the likely disruption as the working week begins and the political row over who's to blame. also on the programme: emmanuel macron is sworn in as france's new president, promising to rejuvenate the country. and misery for hull city as they're relegated from the premier league. good evening.
6:34 pm
the head of the european union's law enforcement agency says the cyber attack that hit the nhs on friday is escalating and could affect many more people as computers are turned on tomorrow morning. europol‘s rob wainwright described the global attack as "unprecedented in its scale". seven nhs trusts remain affected and officials are warning patients about further disruption in coming days. here's our health editor hugh pym. it was the biggest ever attack on health service it systems. today, staff at those hospitals caught up in the disruption were doing their best to get up and running. but the nhs was one victim of a global cyber assault and europe's police agency says the scale of the problem is unprecedented and it could get worse. this will be sitting in
6:35 pm
systems over the weekend in systems not been used and when people arrive for work on monday morning and turn on their computer, we will see the numbers going up again. but questions are being asked about whether nhs it security was adequate. some trusts are still using an outdated operating system, windows xp. ministers said there had been investment. we are spending around £50 million on the nhs cyber systems to improve security. we have encouraged the nhs trust to reduce their exposure to the weakest since them, windows xp. less than 5% of them, windows xp. less than 5% of the trust use that system any more. york hospital's computers were affected but they were not using the old system and they were using security patches to protect against viruses. we are applying patches provided by our providers. we are in
6:36 pm
a large system and we take our responsibilities seriously. labour has written to the health secretary calling for a detailed explanation and today the party went on the attack. the government's handling of this crisis has been chaotic. we have warned the government's attitude to cyber security in the nhs was complacent. they have got the infrastructure budget so the nhs could not put the money it needed into securing its it systems. i am afraid the chickens are coming home to roost. labour says if elected, it will invest billions of pounds in the nhs to upgrade it systems and modernise hospitals and other buildings. england's largest nhs trust which includes the royal london hospital was one of those ha rd est london hospital was one of those hardest hit. the it systems are still not running normally. managers say a certain number of appointments and routine operations will go ahead tomorrow. but some ambulances are
6:37 pm
still being diverted. for this hospital and a few others, this unprecedented disruption is not over yet. hugh pym, bbc news. with me is gordon corera our security correspondent. how worried should we be about how this is likely to develop? it is not clear whether we are through the worst of it. i think there will be a lot of people taking a deep breath when they switch on their computer tomorrow. what happened on friday was a dangerous piece of malicious software. it didn'tjust target was a dangerous piece of malicious software. it didn't just target the uk and it didn'tjust target the nhs, but it only worked on systems which run a particular operating system and hadn't been upgraded. in the uk, that happens to be the case with a number of nhs trusts. that is why only one in five were affected, because the others had upgraded. some other computer systems may also have been affected. 0fficials i have spoken to suggest they haven't seen
6:38 pm
a significant new attack at the moment. they have not seen a new wave or a new variant. moment. they have not seen a new wave or a new variant. what concerns them is there could be a number of machines out there which have been affected with this dangerous piece of software and where it hasn't appeared yet on their systems because they haven't switched it on since friday. so there is a risk on monday it could affect their systems and that could be a significant number. but nobody is sure how many that will be. that be why are a lot of people will be taking a deep breath. some other news today: nicola sturgeon has admitted numeracy, and literacy, have got worse in scottish schools. a survey last week showed less than half of 13 and 14—year—old pupils were performing well in writing. nicola sturgeon told the andrew marr show that action is being taken to address the issues. we have identified a particular issue with literacy and numeracy and we're also determined to accelerate the progress in closing the attainment gap. we have a massive programme of reform underway right now to do that.
6:39 pm
the conservatives are promising new powers to help local authorities build thousands of homes for rent, if they win the general election. sir michael fallon, said £1.11 billion had been allocated in last year's autumn statement, but he acknowledged there would be no new funding to pay for the plans. labour says it will raise billions of pounds for public services with a new tax on financial transactions, a so—called ‘robin hood' tax. the party says the levy would bring in £26 billion over the course of the next parliament. they say they would also create a specialist unit to clamp down on tax avoidance. emmanuel macron has been sworn in as president of france, promising in his inaugural address to bring about a cultural and economic renaissance and rejuvenate the country. the 39—year—old former investment banker swept to power after forming his own political movement. 0ur europe correspondent damian grammaticas watched the ceremony in paris.
6:40 pm
not since france had an emperor 200 yea rs not since france had an emperor 200 years ago, as it had a leader this young. 39 years old and inaugurated president today of one of the world's most powerful nations. emmanuel macron has seized his opportunity, propelled by a young man's self—confidence and some political good fortune. the disillusion that has fuelled populism elsewhere, has led france to back a newcomer, but one squarely in the centre ground. emmanuel macron routed the traditional parties. the outgoing president, francois hollande, leaves office as france's most unpopular leader of
6:41 pm
modern times. but the task in front of mr macron is huge. if this business friendly liberal is to honour his pledge to transform france. translation: all labour laws will be liberalised, companies will be supported. innovation and creativity will be at the heart of my programme. the french feel left behind by globalisation and will be better protected. to achieve that, mr macron needs a majority in parliament, but his new party has no mps and elections are infour party has no mps and elections are in four weeks' time. emmanuel macron has promised this moment will mark a decisive break from the past for france, a moment of national renewal where all his predecessors have promised reform and failed to deliver. he will need more than useful to optimism and energy to succeed. what mr macron hopes he can make it a force at the heart of the
6:42 pm
eu, say those who know him. translation: he will relaunch the eu. if the british were still members, they would be part of this, but we will do this without them. it is on the basis that countries who wa nt to is on the basis that countries who want to cooperate further, will. for france and europe, much rests on some very young shoulders. a teenager has been killed and two others injured in a knife attack in london — the latest in a spate of stabbings in the capital. an 18—year—old died of stab wounds following reports of a mass brawl in enfield. a 19—year—old and a 17—year—old, who were injured, are both expected to recover. nurses are to hold a series of protests this summer over pay. the royal college of nursing is calling for an end to years of below—inflation wage increases, and it's threatening balloting for strike action unless the government lifts its current 1% pay cap. back to the general election, and the south—west of england was, for many years, a stronghold
6:43 pm
for the liberal democrats. but in 2015, they lost every one of their seats there, to the conservatives. then, last year, the west country voted very decisively for leave, in the eu referendum. our political correspondent vicki young has been to penzance to talk to people about how they intend to vote next month. landing the catch in west cornwall, an area where the liberal democrats are hoping for a comeback. a blue tide of conservatives swept them away at the last election, but since then, the brexit vote has transformed the political landscape. so how is the lib dem's pro—eu message going down with fishermen in a region that voted to leave. did you vote in the referendum? yes, i was very heavily leave.
