Is the BBC website down?

Just wondering if anyone else is having problems getting on to www.bbc.co.uk

I've been unable to access it since at least 7am this morning

Is it down or could it be a routing issue

Haven't found any other websites I'm unable to access and everything else appears OK

Anyone else around Stoke on Trent unable to access it?

Problems getting on to linked pages thereafter.

Re: Is the BBC website down?

I've just rebooted my modem and it's back !!!!

Maybe just a coincidence - seems like there could be some routing issues out there though

Re: Is the BBC website down?

I had problems accessing the BBC main site this morning.
The last few days the main BBC.co.uk domain had problems. First the refreshing because /ok? was appended to the end. Now it just doesn't plan work.
I suggest you just try news.bbc.co.uk instead.

Re: Is the BBC website down?

I think that it is down again now and that is why the number of guests viewing the thread is going up, currently 496 guests, was 414 guests before I just registered to post this.
