Blackberry users have again been hit by a glitch cutting off internet and messaging services.

The Blackberry support account tweeted: “Some areas have messaging delays and impaired browsing. We’re working to restore normal service as quickly as possible”.

Angry users have taken to Twitter to vent about the second outage in two days, with comments including ‘My blackberry has been down for hours already!! How quick is quickly? Two days in a row is just too much!’ and ‘What did one Blackberry user say to the other Blackberry user? Nothing’.

In Britain, Vodafone UK told customers service was not fully restored. T-Mobile UK blamed "a European-wide outage on the BlackBerry network" which it said was affecting all mobile operators.
