Brexit blamed for clothing website Asos crashing

Popular clothing website Asos is back up and running after a power outage took it out.

The website has been down for more than a day, coinciding with Britain's decision to leave the European Union.

Earlier, some took to social media to blame the outage on the Brexit while Asos deny it has anything to do with politics.

According to BBCNewsbeat Natalia Serantes-James from the company said it is because of a power outage at a third party data centre that hosts their servers.

"This has impacted our businesses hosted by the centre. Our tech team are working hard to restore services which involves replacing damaged hardware.

"That's why it's taking longer to get back online. We are keeping customers informed on social media," she said.
