A minority of users were also struggling with mobile internet and TV issues, but it is unclear if these were related. 

Virgin Media is one of the most popular broadband providers in the UK.  

Unlike many others, it has its own infrastructure and does not use the Openreach network. 

Virgin customers are unfortunately accustomed to such issues, with the provider being beleaguered by crashes throughout the coronavirus pandemic. 

In July, Virgin confirmed an outage which it claimed was local only to Nottingham. 

A couple of weeks beforehand a similar outage hit London, leaving people unplugged for several hours. 

It is unknown what the cause of the current outage and how widespread it is.

MailOnline has approached Virgin media for comment.
