Update: WordPress upgrade

The below upgrade has been completed successfully – many thanks for your patience.

The web development team will carry out an urgent WordPress upgrade at 12.30pm today to address a security vulnerability, which will be resolved by upgrading to the most current release of WordPress (v4.2.3). This should take a few minutes per WordPress site and users will see a maintenance message whilst it is unavailable.

After the upgrade is complete, normal service should be restored. If users experience any issues, please contact the IT Service Desk.
