Cosmetics firm Lush have been forced to take down their website due to technical problems on Boxing Day.

The Poole-based firm, who saw people queuing outside their Bournemouth store throughout the first day of their post-Christmas sale, tweeted around 11.30am to say their site had crashed.

 


Inundated with complaints from people halfway through their orders, the company later updated customers, just before 5pm, to say: "The website has temporarily been taken down for maintenance. We would like apologise for the disappointment caused by today's issues."

 


The company say they are working to fix the problems as soon as possible.

Customers are being told the website is down while the issues are sorted. There is no estimated timeframe for it to be fixed at present.
