  1. Buzzfeed's highlights of the campaign trail

    Here's Buzzfeed's election round-up for this week.

    Among its top 18 are tales from the town which looks set to switch to the Conservatives after being Labour since 1919.

    We also have an insight into the world of the "Mayllenials". First we had the Millifandom now we apparently have young women who ape the prime minister's fashion sense.

    And there's plenty of insight into how the parties are using social media to rally the internet to their side.

  2. Scotland's GP systems 'back to normal by Monday'

    A number of health boards in Scotland were among those hit by yesterday's cyber attack.

    Scotland's Health Secretary Shona Robison has been speaking to BBC Radio Scotland telling them there was "a level of confidence" that GP systems would run as normal on Monday.

    "We're very much into recovery phase now," she added.

    "Lanarkshire has been more affected in terms of its acute hospitals. The manual systems have worked safely and patients haven't been negatively impacted by that and it's important to stress that."

    Quote Message: People have worked overnight with IT suppliers in Lanarkshire and the intention today is to begin to start testing those IT systems and to gradually and safely try to bring those back on over the course of the weekend."
  3. Busy Saturday for party leaders

    It may be a Saturday but every minute on the campaign trail is precious so the party leaders won't be missing a beat.

    Theresa May, Jeremy Corbyn, Tim Farron, Nicola Sturgeon, Paul Nuttall and Caroline Lucas will all be out and about, criss-crossing the country in search of votes.

    The prime minister was emphasising yesterday that a vote for any other party was "too big a risk to take" with Brexit talks around the corner and she is likely to be making the same argument again. 

    The Labour leader is talking about pensions and restating the party's commitment to retain the "triple lock" guarantee of a minimum 2.5% annual rise in the state pension.

    The Lib Dems say if they were in power they would build 300,000 new homes a year for sale and rent, paid for by government.

    UKIP is to launch its national battle bus campaign while the Greens will set out their manifesto for women.

    Meanwhile, both Gordon Brown and John Prescott are pressing the flesh in Scotland while Nick Clegg and Michael Gove are among speakers at a Brexit conference in London. 

  4. Tory plan to let young erase online past

    The Conservatives say they want to give people the power to demand social media companies delete any embarrassing content they posted as children.

    The party has promised to introduce "new protections against internet harms" if they win the election.

    It wants to work with social media firms such as Facebook and Twitter but have not ruled out legislation.

    Labour accused the Tories of "cynically trotting out tough talk that we know will be ultimately meaningless".

    At present, users can delete their profile on social media accounts if they want to get rid of embarrassing content, but this risks losing all their online connections with people.

    The Conservatives also want to make it easier to conduct business online, by introducing the right to insist on a so-called digital signature as a replacement for signing a contract by hand.

  5. Watson: Labour determined to turn polls around

    Tom Watson

    Labour's deputy leader has warned of a "Margaret Thatcher-style landslide" for the Conservatives if his party fails to turn around current poll numbers.

    Tom Watson said Labour had a "mountain to climb" to catch up with the Tories before 8 June's vote.

    He told the Guardian: "It is going be very, very difficult... but we are determined to do it."

    In her latest campaign visit, Theresa May accused Labour of "deserting" working class voters.

    In his interview, Mr Watson asked for voters to consider that "a lot of local MPs are running on a good track record" when people head to the polling stations next month.

  6. Rudd: We will learn lessons from NHS attack

    Amber Rudd has told the BBC that the cyber attack on the NHS "did not come out of the blue".

    She told Breakfast that the government had been prepared for such an eventuality and had been giving the NHS all the assistance that it needed to deal with the fallout.

    While the focus was on ending the current disruption as quickly as possible, she said ministers "would not hesitate to learn the lessons" in terms of the protecting NHS IT systems and other vital infrastructure.

  7. Experts strive to restore NHS computers

    IT experts are "working round the clock" to restore NHS computer systems hit by Friday's ransomware attack.

    Ciaran Martin, head of the UK's cyber security agency, said it was doing "everything in our power" to get "vital services" back up and running.

    The BBC understands about 45 NHS organisations and some GP practices were hit in England and Scotland, with operations and appointments cancelled.

    The government said the NHS had been caught up in an international attack.

    Similar computer infections have been reported in a range of organisations in about 100 countries.

    Some British hospitals and GPs were unable to access patient data after their computers were locked by the malicious program.

    The NHS has not been affected in Wales and Northern Ireland. Read more
