newsimg.bbc.co.uk

Anyone else having real problems with the BBC news site? Not the text, that's fine, just the images from newsimg.bbc.co.uk.
Its loading but really slowly and a traceroute shows:

Edited to add.
Thisisgloucestershire is sulking too with the pages just hanging.

So I guess its a wider problem
Which suddenly seems to have cleared up for the beeb:

and for tig

[/tt]
But its odd that the IP addresses seem to have changed. I'm using dnsmasq locally which is querying off OpenDNS and PN's DNS servers so I'm not sure where the problem lies.

Re: newsimg.bbc.co.uk

I have no problems with either of those sites.
