MAJOR websites including Amazon, Twitter, Reddit and Spotify went down this morning in a mass internet outage.

Problems began around 11am BST (6am ET) on Tuesday and lasted for an hour, shutting visitors out of some of the world’s most popular web pages.

The New York Times, Guardian, Bloomberg and even HMRC websites were also struck down by outages.

Visitors to affected sites were met with a “503 error” message, and were unable to load the page. The message warned of a “connection failure”.
