Thousands of political ads have disappeared from Facebook's public archive shortly before the general election in Britain on December 12, Reuters reports.

On December 5, the social media operator's advertising library displayed nearly 180,000 classified ads as political in the UK, starting with October 2018. On Tuesday, however, their number dropped sharply by a third, to below 120,000 ads.

"We know that people can't access ads in the archive of ads and we work to fix the issue as soon as possible," said a Facebook spokesperson, quoted by the Financial Times.

Facebook representatives did not immediately respond to requests for comment from Reuters.
