BT Paddington flood/fire update
As an update to the flood problems reported yesterday that caused a fire in BT's North Paddington exchange, power has been largely restored to most of the site after flood water was pumped out of the building overnight. Communications services are currently being restored, and work will continue throughout the day to get things back up and running. Tiscali LLU services based at the exchange were restored by 08:30 according to a status update from Gradwell.
A recorded update on the status of the work here, for BT Total broadband customers, is available at 0800 1690199 which should detail when all is working again as there is currently no estimated time for a fix.
A photo posted to Flickr by BTCare shows the extent of the flood water which had risen to more than 18 inches.
