We are currently aware of an issue in the North Paddington Exchange affecting leased lines, DSL and PSTN based circuits. Damage to the exchange has reportedly been caused by flooding and fire although the sequence of the events is not clear at present. We have been advised though that the fire is now out and flooding has been stopped. Water pumps are currently on site to clear water from the exchange, at which point engineers will be able to fully assess the damage.
An initial ETR has been set as 12:00 on the 02/04/2010 although further updates will follow as and when they become available.
