It appears that overnight an ISP block has been put on TryHackMe.com by Virgin; it can no longer be accessed without the use of a VPN. This is an educational site used by cyber security specialists including young apprentices etc. Does anyone know how this matter can be addressed by Virgin?

Whatever block there was seems to have cleared itself. Are you seeing same?

It would appear that I am still unable to access it, which, if you can access it via Virgin indicates that it is a targeted ISO block. Do you know of a way to overcome this?

if you run the following in a Command Shell on Windows or a Terminal elsewhere what result do you see:
curl -I http://TryHackMe.com
FYI set an alternative DNS on device should bypass Child Safe
