Accessing Google News

If you're having trouble accessing Google News, try these steps first:

  1. Restart your computer.
  2. If that doesn't work, verify that you're able to reach other sites on the Internet.
  3. Quit and relaunch your browser application and try to connect to news.google.co.uk again.
  4. Try clearing your browser's cache.

If you're still unable to connect to Google News, here are some additional suggestions to consider:

  • If you're accessing Google from behind a firewall, proxy or anti-virus programme, disable the programme and try accessing the site again. These programmes could be configured incorrectly and, as a result, you may have problems accessing sites on the Internet; if disabling the programme resolves the problem, you may want to consult the programme's online support centre for assistance.
  • If you're on a computer network, can others on your network access Google News? If you're in a school, library or other public place, then network-security applications may prohibit you from accessing certain sites on the web.
  • Do you have the latest version of your browser? If not, downloading it may resolve the problem.
  • If you're running Microsoft Windows, do you have the latest updates and patches from Microsoft?

If none of the above suggestions help, you can try deleting your browser's cookies. Please note that while deleting your cookies may resolve this problem, it will also remove your saved settings for sites that you've previously visited.

If you've followed these instructions and are still having trouble connecting to Google News, please let us know.
