Reuters Servers are Down

I’m not sure what this means, but Reuters — whose HQ is on Fleet Street in London — servers are down.

"Server Too Busy" is the  given reason, but other major media are handling the post attack load. I wonder what sort of damage the communication infrastructure received in London.

    Barry: Just a note of correction…Reuters moved their headquarters from Fleet Street about a month ago….Love the site as always…TFD

    Reuters moved editorial headquarters to Grays Inn Rd. some 8 years ago. The board moved out some time ago as well. The building in Fleet Street was sold in a cost-cutting move and does not hold more than some kind of a gallery – if the pics didn’t get sold as well by now – and the Reuters foundation. Reuters was the last news organisation to leave Fleet Street.
