In an update at 7.43 this morning they said: ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“Repair work is continuing. Engineers have remained on site overnight working hard to resolve this issue and we apologise for any continued inconvenience.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Worryingly for Sky broadband customers, they add; ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
