MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – Several Google services were down worldwide for about an hour Monday morning amid a major outage for the company.

Most of the issues appeared to be coming from the UK, The Independent reported.

Many people took to Twitter after failing to be able to log into their Gmail accounts, and Google Drive and YouTube, which is also owned by Google, were also down.

Those who were unable to view their email received the following error message: “We’re sorry, but your account is temporarily unavailable. We apologize for the inconvenience and suggest trying again in a few minutes. You can view the G Suite Status Dashboard for the current status of the service.”

Most of Google’s services were back online shortly after 8 a.m., however some people were still unable to access their Gmail accounts.

“Please rest assured that system reliability is a top priority at Google, and we are making continuous improvements to make our systems better,” the company said in a statement.
