Residents have been met with a 'server not found message' when trying to access Swindon Borough Council's website.

This meant people living in the town were not able to do things like report potholes, pay or check their council tax or look at planning applications, causing annoyance among some posters on X.

But on Wednesday the council said it has 'rolled out a fix' and everything should return to normal within '48 hours'. 

A council spokesperson said: “A solution is currently being rolled out to restore full public access to the council’s website.

“Since an issue was first identified, many residents have already had their access restored. Access should be returned to everyone within the next 48 hours.

“The fix is being cascaded out via internet service providers (ISP), so the precise timing will be dependent on which ISP residents use at home. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.”

The borough council initially apologised for the issue when it first arose on Tuesday. 

In a post on Facebook, the local authority said. "We're currently working to resolve an issue with our website which is affecting access.

"Our customer services team and other SBC departments are experiencing the same access issue, so please only call for very urgent issues.

"Sorry for any inconvenience caused while we get this fixed."
