United Kingdom

Virgin Media is DOWN

Virgin Media appears to have crashed across the UK, leaving thousands of locked-down Britons working from home unable to get online.  

According to outage tracking site downdetector.co.uk, 40 per cent of reported issues are with cabled internet, but it seems Virgin's mobile network is also affected. 

The cause of the outage is unknown but started around midday, with more than 1,700 reported problems as of 12:40pm. 

MailOnline has approached Virgin Media for comment.

Earlier today Netflix also went offline for around an hour. 

Virgin crashed yesterday at almost the exact same time, with thousands of user complaints around midday.    

Yesterday's outage was primarily with the mobile network, with people having problems with 4G, making and receiving calls and sending messages. 

This issue appears to have reared its head again, but with the added problem of a large broadband dropout.
