The network has now recovered and our partner has taken various steps to prevent this from re-occurring whilst the issue is investigated further by their parties concerned.
The "Reason For Outage" - RFO from our hosting partner:

"We became aware of a network issue around 13:30PM BST. This issue was a similar issue to the LACP problems we saw on Monday which appears so far to be a problem with the firmware on these routers.
We understand that these problems are inconvenient. We will continue to work with the network parties to resolve this issue."
This problem has now been addressed - we will post further information when we get an update from our partner.
We are aware of a network issue impacting our hosting partners main UK datacenter. At the moment we don't know any more details about the causes.
We'll update this announcement when we have more information.
