BBC News down? Infinite redirects?


Anyone else in the UK struggling to access news.bbc.co.uk? I did set my geographic profile on the new homepage today.

I don't think this is just a cookie issue though, look at what happens with the http 1.1 requests without cookie support.



If this isn't an issue with my ISP then it could be the Beeb's IP based geo-dectect system playing up.

Update: What ever it was... it was brief. The Beeb's back.

Update 2: Yeah. the 302 from news.bbc.co.uk was probably just to news.bbc.co.uk/. Oh well. We may never know - but I'm still interested to discover whether anyone else had access issues after picking a preference on the new site.

Down again today. Election results day. Apparently they're short of nodes.
