THOUSANDS of homes in Glasgow's East End have been left without internet. 

Residents in areas such as Dennistoun and Bridgeton say their Wifi went down last night and remains out of action today. 

Openreach engineers have rushed to an exchange in the city but it is understood it could be Thursday before the issue is resolved. 

Bosses at the firm say they have received more than 600 reports of outages and it is likely thousands of homes have been affected.

According to website Down Detector, locals on providers such as Talk Talk, BT, and Sky have all reported issues since yesterday. 

Dennistoun councillor Allan Casey said: "I have had multiple reports of an internet outage across Dennistoun from a number of different internet providers.

"I will be contacting each provider to try and ensure any repairs are carried out ASAP, given how many people are working and learning from home." 

An Openreach spokesman said: “A power incident in Bridgeton, Glasgow, last night has had a knock-on effect on our digital network.

"We’ve had 600 fault reports so far and believe thousands of local households are affected.

"Engineers are working to restore services but the nature of the repairs, at a busy central junction, are very complex and may take some time, so please bear with us.

"We’re sorry for the unexpected disruption to services meantime.”

This is a developing story and we will have more as we get it
