Virgin Media Business issues update on adverse weather
Virgin Media Business has confirmed normal service has been resumed in many parts of the UK following the adverse weather.

The business broadband provider revealed a number of areas, including Croydon, Mansfield, Nottingham and Tunbridge Wells, are no longer likely to be hit by delays or cancellations to installations, deliveries and other appointments.

However, the Virgin Media subsidiary warned the conditions are still directly and indirectly affecting services in other regions, including south-east and west Scotland, Newcastle and Northumberland, and the Tees Valley.

A build-up of work has been created in some of these parts of the country, while the weather also caused faults to the company's infrastructure that need repairing.

"We're working to recover all backlogs as soon as [these] areas are clear of snow and ice," said director of business provisioning and access planning at Virgin Media Business Julie Agnew.

This announcement comes after the Met Office warned overnight temperatures could dip close to freezing this week, which may result in black ice forming.
