YouTube is experiencing major problems with many users unable to access the website.
According to DownDetector the site went down for users in Europe at around 6pm GMT.
The video streaming site is still working intermittently for some users, but others are seeing a message which reads: “500 Internal Server Error”, alongside multiple lines of code.
A message reads: “Sorry, something went wrong. A team of highly trained monkeys has been dispatched to deal with this situation.”
