The Times is one of the oldest newspapers in the country – it was founded in 1785 and adopted its current name in 1788. It is one of the top 10 national dailies with the highest circulation in the United Kingdom.
The British newspaper reported “some technical issues” with its digital products on Friday, posting a statement about the malfunction on Twitter. The outlet hasn’t provided additional details on the matter.
The news comes shortly after a major malfunction struck the UK Department of Health’s website, which had to be closed amid “significant demand”, as millions tried to book COVID-19 tests online.
We’re experiencing some technical issues with our digital products and working to fix them as soon as possible. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
