United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust computers were affected in the nationwide attack last Friday.

As a result, mobile breast screening appointments in Horncastle will not take place this week.

A spokesman said the NHS Trust hopes to resume appointments at the town unit next week.

Appointments at Lincoln Hospital and Boston Pilgrim Hospital will go ahead as normal.
