Millions of people have been having problems with their mobile phones this morning, after the O2 network went down.

O2 have assured customers that they are working as hard as possible to get the networks up and running as soon as possible. Work is now ongoing to fix the fault and customers are being encouraged to use wi-fi where possible.
