Home Secretary Amber Rudd will chair a meeting of the Government's emergency COBRA committee later.

NHS organisations across the country were on alert for a possible recurrence of Friday's cyberattack as staff returned to work on Monday.

Hutchins, who uses the name MalwareTech online, is now helping the National Cyber Security Centre with their investigations.

But in the last few minutes a statement on the hospital website confirmed that the radiology services that were affected have now been restored.

The NHS announced on Monday that it was "open for business" but acknowledged that some hospitals and GP surgeries are still suffering disruption.

"This incident emphasises the importance for all of us - the public and private sectors, as well as the general public - to have the appropriate measures in place to protect against these kinds of attack".

UK's state-run National Health Service (NHS) was limping back to normalcy today, even as experts have warned of a second wave of ransomware cyberattacks on IT systems around the world.
