Instagram users have been left distraught after the photo-sharing app crashed.

Many were faced with an error message when they tried to access the platform from their mobile phones on Monday evening.

Selfie-lovers took to Twitter to vent their frustration, with many turning to humour to dull their pain.

Ella King posted: "Instagram is down??? Now how will I seek validation from strangers on the Internet??"

Ako Akinrele wrote: "Instagram isn't down, my last selfie was just that good."

Sonya Ali tweeted: "Instagram is down. Everyone freak out."

Instagram responded: "We know some Instagrammers are experiencing issues with the app. We're working on a fix."

The desktop site did not appear to be affected by the glitch.
