Strange routing

Given this morning's Linx outage I thought I'd see which gateway I was connected to and whether it had changed for no other reason than idle curiosity as I was at work, but does the below strike anyone as strange?

 

Array
(
    [1] =>  7  ldn-bb3-link.telia.net (62.115.114.126)  4.202 ms
    [2] =>  8  ldn-b7-link.telia.net (62.115.114.185)  4.865 ms
    [3] =>  9  213.248.82.250 (213.248.82.250)  4.010 ms
    [4] => 10  166-49-211-229.eu.bt.net (166.49.211.229)  4.253 ms
    [5] => 11  109.159.254.127 (109.159.254.127)  8.846 ms
    [6] => 12  109.159.255.101 (109.159.255.101)  5.728 ms
    [7] => 13  195.99.126.139 (195.99.126.139)  6.762 ms
    [8] => 14  ae1.pcl-cr01.plus.net (195.166.129.1)  5.246 ms
    [9] => 15  te3-1.pcl-gw01.plus.net (212.159.0.205)  7.029 ms
    [10] => 16  link-a-central10.pcl-ag04.plus.net (212.159.2.173)  10.714 ms
    [11] => 17  x.x.x (80.229.xxx.xxx)  12.331 ms
)

Is traffic being routed around Linx still or is there something else going on as I normally get around 4 hops?

Re: Strange routing

It's re-routing. My trace was like that into the evening, but reverted to the normal shorter one later.

With this morning's problems it's back to the longer one again.
