'Instagram down': App 'crashes again' for hundreds of users and E4 has stopped working, according to reports

HUNDREDS of Instagram users have reported the app has crashed again after a number of alleged meltdowns this week.

Brits are struggling to use the popular online photo-sharing and social networking service, according to Down Detector.


Users have also told the site they are having issues with Channel 4, with a number of viewers complaining E4 is down.

Down Detector tweeted this evening: "User reports indicate Instagram is having problems since 4:48 PM EDT."

According to the site, more than 1,000 Instagram users had reported outages by 9.43pm.

Another 777 TV viewers said they were struggling to view Channel 4 services.

Down Detector only tracks outages by collating status reports from a series of sources – including user-submitted errors – on its platform.

It means the outages may be affecting more people than reported.

A number of Instagrammers and Channel 4 fans took to Twitter tonight to complain.

One person asked: "Am I trippin or my IG is not working #instagramdown".

Another said: "Yup we know why we're here again #instagramdown".

Meanwhile, a baffled viewer trying to watch TV, wrote: "Does anyone know what the story is behind @E4Tweets@Channel4’s problems right now?

"I feel like channels would rarely just go down so often. Are they short-staffed? Someone off sick? Bored? Call for help?"

Another added: "E4+1 channel down. No other channels. Just this one!!!!!!"

Earlier this week Down Detector said Instagram had been subject to complaints on three occasions in little more than a week.

And last week, Facebook and Instagram were down for millions of users for hours in what was Facebook's worst global outage since 2008, according to reports.

The Sun has contacted Instagram and Channel 4 for details.
