On 12th January between 07:50 and 08:40 UTC, there was a degradation to admission flow on the FPS Simulator, submissions were not affected. Account reconciliation was impacted until 09:55.
During the impact window, a minor version update was being carried out on the database that supports the Simulator. This activity was due to be completed out of business support hours but overran. Full service was restored at 09:55.
