MOBILE phone users across the Isle of Wight are facing network problems this morning, as 4G and data services on O2 have stopped working.

Companies such as Tesco Mobile, Sky Mobile and GiffGaff, that share the O2 network, are also experiencing problems.

Writing on Twitter, O2 said this morning: "Outage Update: One of our third party suppliers has identified a software issue in their system. Our technical teams are working extremely hard to resolve this.

"We'd encourage you to use Wi-Fi wherever you can and we are really sorry."

Islanders have vented their frustration on social media.

One said: "My mobile network has been down all morning so far. No data signal, nothing."

Another said: "It's doing my head in."
