From The Register:

The London Internet Exchange (LINX) suffered a major failure yesterday afternoon, leading to a significant slowdown of UK traffic.

The initial failure has been isolated to a network switch which then "cascaded", causing more problems, said spokesman Richard Yule.

Investigations are ongoing as to whether the glitch was in hardware or software, or a combination of both, he added.
