Since Monday, this website has suffered some intermittent disruption which may have affected your reader experience, as well as your access to our associated digital edition and app.

This has been caused by a series of cyber-attacks known as “distributed denial-of-service” (DDOS). 

We have been able to contain most of these attacks, but some readers will have experienced a disruption.

Please be assured that no reader or subscriber data has been accessed or compromised, and none of our systems have been damaged.

We appreciate this must be frustrating and apologise for these issues.

We are fully aware so there is no need to report these issues to us.

In the meantime, thank you for your patience and your ongoing support.
