Have your signals returned?
I can't find any reported faults for the transmitter nor any logged power-cuts although a brief one due to weather conditions might not be logged.
Your location could receive signals from 3 transmitters. For Findon your aerial should be pointing at compass bearing 352 degrees (that's almost due N) with its rods (or squashed Xs) vertical. Is it pointing that way?
Findon is a relay of Rowridge which is listed for Planned Engineering, so it's possible a biref interruption there may have affected Findon.
