Have your HD channels returned? I can't find any reports by Freeview or the BBC about any faults affecting the Glossop transmitter which is what I'm assuming you receive (or other nearby ones that you might receive!).
There has been some very variable Tropospheric Ducting around which can affect individual frequencies at different times and come and go. See Effect of tropospheric ducting on Freeview | Help receiving TV and radio
