It's not currently listed for Planned Engineering and I can't find any listing of a fault BUT as it's a Relay of Waltham and Waltham is listed, work there could be having an effect.
Also, it might be Current weather conditions -
Tropospheric Ducting - causing interference from more distant transmitters in Europe or the UK. This can be very variable and is usually short term at any instant but conditions have been persisting for several days, different parts of the UK are being affected at different time. Not all multiplexes will be affected at any instant. Both Freeview and the BBC have issued warnings about short term interference to reception.
IF you were correctly tuned, Do NOT retune, whatever the cause, as this usually just clears your correct tuning if you have no signals or badly pixellated pictures. You'll then have to retune again when signals are normal and as you won't know when that is you may have to try several times.
