So Virgin Broadband was down for about twelve hours from shortly before midnight on the 29th through to lunchtime on the 30th. They've been up since.

Now, however, I can't get through to my office from here... although I can get through just fine from various other places on the Internet that I can reach easily.

    Trace complete.

I'm just wondering whether other people are having the same trouble.

[EDIT (12:10): Now fixed. Routing borked between about half-five and about eleven this morning.]

Virgin didn't go down in The North, so far as I can tell.

Yes, it was a South and South-East Backbone failure from what I heard. I had immense problems getting through to Google, Wiki and other common sites for a few hours after it all happened but it seems to to have come back now. I assume that was DNS failures somehow. The whole service dropped out again last night as well but only briefly.
