Recent IT issues

During the week commencing 16 October 2017 there was a major power failure at FBA which has resulted in IT hardware problems. Data and websites, including the Riverfly Partnership website and ARMI database, were unavailable for a few days as a result but both have now been recovered and are functioning as normal again.
Sorry for any inconvenience caused as a result of this problem, and thank you for your patience.
