Amazon UK goes down for an hour at lunch time today

Amazon UK went offline for some users for almost an hour at midday today.

Amazon Down

Those try to access Amazon were displaying a message which read “We’re Sorry! There was an internal error in our system. We logged the problem and will investigate it later. Our apologies for the inconvenience.

Amazon is back up and appears to be running normally, so those on Twitter who were lamenting being unable to shop without leaving the house can get spending again.

Did you notice Amazon were offline. Has there been an appreciable blip in sales today?
