RE: Site Speed
Unfortunately, not. If I could find out the range of IP addresses that's hammering us, I'd block them but Cloudflare (who we use for our web firewall) doesn't provide that information

Edit to add
It looks like things have calmed down a bit now - the bandwidth has reduced down again (top line)

Great pic to look at 6 times :-)

Just double posted for me. Third time too. Thought it might be a problem with my phone, or tapatalk but not if others are finding the same with pc.

RE: Site Speed
Apologies to everyone again for these issues, we were again getting flooded by network traffic.

I have temporarily bypassed Cloudflare for the site as it gives us more control over the traffic and I can block individual IP addresses (which I've now done, having located the rogue IP address from the Netherlands). It does mean some things might be a bit slower but overall the site should be better now
