Blackberry services working again

After a 20-hour blackout, Blackberry services across Europe, the Middle East and Africa have been restored.

Blackberry maker RIM issued a statement at 05:50 BST which said all services were now "operating normally".

Millions of Blackberry users were left without email, web browsing and messaging services following the crash about 11:00 BST on 10 October.

Chris Green, a technology analyst with the Davies Murphy Group, told BBC Radio 4's Today programme that the glitch is "yet another public failure" for Canadian company RIM.
