Martin Ridley: If you're loosing reception at the same time every day, there is a high likelyhood that you're suffering from electrical interference caused by something either in your home or nearby which is operating at that time. Common culprits are things like central heating pumps that contain an electric motor and are often operated on a timer, also poorly shielded LED lighting can cause electrical noise.

As StevensOnln1 says this is likely to be some form of electrical interference. If you actually mean 1.00am ie 0100hrs, this is often around the time when Economy 7 (or off-peak supply) switches onto the low overnight rate for storage and similar heating. If you or a near neighbour have this, you may have an "arcing" connection or thermostat somewhere and you should try and find it sooner rather than later.
How long does the loss of Freeview continue?
Also, you have posted on the Fenham transmitter page but your predicted transmitter should be Pontop Pike - your aerial should be pointing pretty well SW (bearing 228 degrees). If your aerial has moved in recent high winds, this could weaken your signal and make it more vulnerable to all sorts of interference.
