Lights go out at Telecity in London data outage

Hosting? We've prepared the guest suite for Mr Cockup

Anyone relying on Telecity for hosting, backup or email services will know this already: a power failure at one of its London centres has left dozens of businesses offline.

The company's PRs are currently in a meeting so we have no official response. But several Reg readers emailed us to say power had gone for about an hour earlier today. The power cut hit two floors of the Canary Wharf hosting centre. We'll update this story when we know more. ®
