Much of the BBC website has been down this morning, as the Corporation experiences what it describes as "technical issues" with its online service.
A Tweet by the BBC Press Office says: "We're aware of a technical issue affecting the BBC website and are working to fix this now. We'll update you as soon as we can."
The glitch has affected the BBC News, Sport, Weather and iPlayer pages, to name but a few.
Sadly the BBC hopes to resume normal service soon. Indeed as we type this we can see that some pages are coming back online.
Update: The BBC has now confirmed that its web services were disrupted this morning as a results of a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack.
