Google investigates ‘problem’ with gmail as users locked out of accounts

Google is investigating a problem with its gmail accounts this evening (17 April) which has left some users unable to access their accounts.

In updating its users, Google has said that it was an ‘issue’ that was affecting less than 2% - around 7 million - of its estimated 350 million users. The company has also claimed that it has already restored access for some users.

At the time of writing there was no knowledge as to when the issue would be fully rectified.
