Google Down in the UK

People in the UK trying to access Google may be experiencing connectivity issues. A DigitalPoint Forums thread shows how several folks are reporting Google to be down.

Have not been able to access any Google site for the past 5 mins in the UK

Well I can't access Google OR login to Adsense OR get Adsense ads on any site - from the UK - using BT broadband

Down for me.... I'm in the Oxford area at the moment, on a BT broadband line.

Danny Sullivan just informed me that he found Google to be "sluggish." Danny is based in the UK.

I can confirm that it is down for me too, I wonder if this is a worldwide problem as despite being a uk based site my server is in the USA. It is now 20.17 looks like we will have all lost a few dollars today then! Is this something to do with the recent news items about click fraud perhaps, they could possibly be installing some new software. Who knows but if it carrys on there will be millions lost so I am sure they must be beavering away somewhere.

Same here; last few days I had small outages with the BT Total Broadband 8mb/s package, esp. on Google.

Google's not much liked by the government.

I can't get You Tube either: It seems like all Google services are down. Pinging doesn't get any packets returned either.
