Instagram has suffered an outage across the UK with users racing to other platforms to complain about it.
There has been no word on scheduled maintenance from the social network’s bosses so it appears that another issue is to blame.
Reports started to emerge on the outage-tracking website DownDetector at about 2pm.
The outage appears to be centered around London, but other parts of Europe have also been hit. The issues is believed to be affecting thousands of Instagram users.
‘Tried restarting phone, deleting and re-downloaded app, still not working. Anyone else?!’
Others turned to Twitter to start lamenting the lack of an available Instagram to scroll.

‘Since last night no ones IG displays any content, including mine… just says “can’t refresh feed”‘ lamented one Instagram user.
