BBC Homepage – July, 2013

BBC blocks logo


We received complaints from users who were unable to access their local news/weather pages for a few days.

Response from the Homepage team

The BBC homepage was subject to technical problems which led to the site being unavailable for a few short periods recently. In order to stabilise the service and continue to provide the main items of news, sport and TV the team turned off all the feeds that supply local information so the problem could be addressed. Localisation of news and weather has now been reinstated.
