The BBC are reporting a fault.
Whilst the BBC have reported fault details on their individual transmitter page, they have NOT (yet?) added it to a page which is an engineering list of Freeview faults which is where the updates to this site come from.
From 9:05:23am on 27th Nov 2021 BBC A / BBCB HD Off the air due to a fault
This is most likely due to current abysmal weather conditions, and if due to a power outage you'd best be looking for details regarding such outages in your area. I can't find any further updates at present.
