A number of people across the globe reported a series of issues with WhatsApp on Friday morning. 

The service was down for users in areas on the continent of Europe, as well as other countries like Singapore, Iran, India, Mozambique and Vietnam. 

According to a website called DownDetector, a great number of people were heavily affected in the Netherlands, as well as in areas across Germany and Switzerland. 

Major cities like London, Barcelona and Madrid also faced some disruption to the service.
