There was an issue affecting access to some network services located in Huntingdon and Manchester on the 7/01/2010 from appro 6pm until midnight.

The cause was seperate failures of our two links to Huntingson (one via Manchester the other direct from London to Huntingdon.

One we were aware of the incident we used another backup link to provide access to most services in Huntington and Manchester although a small number of servers could not be reached via this route. We are waiting details from our supplier a to the cause of the main link (the other link was taken down for an upgrade that is to be completed in the morning).

We apologise for any issues that this may have caused and we are working to ensure this does not happen again
