Interruption to service

A quick blog to apologise for the interruption to the service on the BBC Sport website last night.

Our editorial team were unable to publish any updates to the main pages of the website from about 18:50 until after 23:00 - this affected News and other parts of the BBC website as well.
It appears to have been caused by damage to the links between our London buildings, which meant we lost network connectivity between our publishing systems and the BBC web servers.

On a busy night of Champions League football, this meant we were unable to bring you our normal live text commentary and photos, other football scores and statistics updates, or reports and quotes as soon as the games finished.

Which was just as frustrating for us as it obviously was for all of you unable to get any updates or information.

We hope normal service has now been resumed, but our technical teams will continue to investigate and work on ensuring that is the case.
