Scotland’s roads thrown into chaos as security ramped up at Fife naval base in wake of Manchester bombing

security threat chaos

But the measures were still warmly welcomed by those affected as a ring of steel is thrown up around key locations

SCOTLAND S new national security level caused major road delays today as commuters got to grips with enhanced security measures ordered by Prime Minister Theresa May in the wake of the Manchester bombing. But the measures were still warmly welcomed by those affected as a ring of steel is thrown up around key locations including the strategically important dockyards and travel hubs in Fife.

Scotland's Roads Thrown Into Chaos As Security Ramped Up At Fife Naval Base In Wake Of Manchester Bombing

Increased security checks are standard when threat level is critical at naval bases

Staff at Rosyth Dockyard, an integration site for the Royal Navy s newest aircraft carriers, went through rigorous security checks this morning causing huge tailbacks towards Dunfermline and Edinburgh. Commuters waited for hours as traffic came to a standstill, while bus services were thrown into chaos.

A union chief said increased security at naval bases is standard practice during heightened terror threats. Bob MacGregor, regional officer at Unite, said: We at Unite welcome this decision which will give our members increased protection. The move comes two days after Manchester Arena was nail bombed by terrorist Salman Abedi1.

The Brit-born suicide bomber, 22, was unmasked 2as Theresa May raised the UK threat level to critical for the first time in ten years with up to 3,800 soldiers on the streets because another terror attack could be imminent .

The frantic family of missing Scots teen Eilidh MacLeod3 are continuing their desperate search for her following the attack. The 14-year-old had travelled to see pop star Ariana Grande with pal Laura MacIntyre4, 15, when horror struck on Monday night. The pair had made the long trip south from Barra to see their favourite singer.

Laura s relatives received news last night that the teenager had been found alive in hospital and is being treated for serious burns.5

Police Scotland announced this morning there would be increased security at sites across Scotland. Chief Constable Phil Gormley said: My thoughts and those of everyone at Police Scotland continue to be with those who have lost loved ones or who were injured in the attack in Manchester.

With the threat level now at Critical, we have now established a multi-agency co-ordination centre to lead and co-ordinate the response across the country along with key partners.

Police Scotland will be increasing our operations to protect the people of Scotland, our businesses and public places.

This may include a range of options aimed at increasing security at these sites, reassuring residents, businesses, workers and visitors so they can go about their daily lives as normally as possible.

Yesterday morning, we increased the number of armed police on patrol at key locations and the public should expect to see armed officers on foot patrol.

We are reviewing all significant events along with event organisers taking place within the next 14 days and will increase the security footprint around those events where it is deemed appropriate.

We have well-rehearsed plans to respond to major incidents and we will be continuing to work with our partners to address the current heightened threat.

However, there is no intelligence to suggest there is any specific threat to Scotland but I would ask the public to remain alert and report anything suspicious.

Cyber attack: 100000 organisations hit in 150 countries as experts fear virus escalation

International efforts are under way to track down the perpetrators behind a cyber attack which threw the NHS into chaos and affected businesses across the world. Europol, the EU’s police agency, revealed on Sunday that 100,000 organisations across at least 150 countries were targeted, and there are fears that many more people may be hit by the virus on Monday when they return to work. Speaking on ITV’s Peston on Sunday, Europol director Rob Wainwright warned that “all sectors” were vulnerable to attack1 and urged organisations to ensure they updated their systems.

At this time the identity of the attackers who deployed the ransomware bug remains unknown. But Europol said its cybercrime specialists had begun a “complex international investigation” to identify the culprits. And Oliver Gower from the National Crime Agency, said: “Cyber criminals may believe they are anonymous but we will use all the tools at our disposal to bring them to justice.”

Europol said the current challenge was the fast-spreading capabilities of the malware, which locks up data and demands a payment for it to be released.

However, it appears that few have paid the ransom the software demands. Meanwhile a British cyber security researcher known online as MalwareTech has warned that another attack could come as soon as Monday. He was hailed an “accidental hero” after helping prevent the virus from spreading further when he and another researcher stumbled upon a “kill switch”2 in the malware code.

The 22-year-old said: “We have stopped this one, but there will be another one coming and it will not be stoppable by us.

“There’s a lot of money in this . There’s no reason for them to stop . It’s not really much effort for them to change the code and then start over. The NHS systems are believed to have been hit by a ransomware cyber attack using malware called “Wanna Decryptor”.

Version 1 of WannaCrypt was stoppable but version 2.0 will likely remove the flaw . You’re only safe if you patch ASAP.

The attack that began on Friday is believed to be the biggest online extortion attack ever recorded, disrupting computers that run factories, banks, government agencies and transport systems. Forty-five NHS division were affected by the attack . Operations and appointments were cancelled for patients across the country as 48 trusts in England and 13 health boards in Scotland were attacked by the ransomware. Medical staff reported seeing computers go down “one by one” as the attack took hold, locking machines and demanding money to release the data.

There have been calls for an inquiry into the circumstances surrounding Friday’s major incident, with the government and NHS chiefs facing questions over their preparedness and the robustness of vital systems. On Saturday a former head of the body managing the NHS’ cyber security system said an online attack on the health service was “always going to happen”. He said although the government has invested in protecting against a cyber attack, it can be “difficult” to ensure trusts spend money on cyber security.

The Home Secretary said patient data does not appear to have been accessed . Credit: ITV News

Speaking after a Cobra meeting on Saturday, Home Secretary Amber Rudd admitted “there’s always more” that can be done to protect against cyber attacks. But she stressed that attack had affected organisations in scores of countries.

“If you look at who’s been impacted by this virus, it’s a huge variety across different industries and across international governments . This is a virus that attacked Windows platforms . The fact is the NHS has fallen victim to this,” she said.

“I don’t think it’s to do with that preparedness . There’s always more we can all do to make sure we’re secure against viruses, but I think there have already been good preparations in place by the NHS to make sure they were ready for this sort of attack.”

NHS Digital, which manages the health service cyber security, said fewer than 5 percent of devices within the health service still use the old Windows XP system.

Nissan UK confirmed it was affected3, but said there had been “no major impact”. It is understood its plant in Sunderland is not due to have another production shift until Sunday night. A spokesman said: “Like many organisations around the world, some Nissan entities were recently targeted by a ransomware attack.

“Our teams are responding accordingly and there has been no major impact on our business .

We are continuing to monitor the situation.”
