    Disruptions in the service have been reported since 11:26 GMT. Most of the complaints are related to the website's operation or watching videos.

    YouTube is down for thousands of users across the globe, according to DownDetector, a service registering distruptions on popular websites.

    In the UK, a maximum of 7,513 crash reports were submitted to the site, while in the United States, the figure reached 21,849.

    Both countries reported problems watching videos and using the site, while a smaller portion of users had problems logging in.

    The video service has so far provided no explanation as to what caused the malfunction.
