Abstract: The electron beam in the Diamond Synchrotron Light Source is stabilised in two planes using the Fast Orbit Feedback system. This feedback system takes the beam position from 168 Libera electron beam position monitors, for both planes, and calculates offsets to 336 corrector power supplies at a rate of ~10 kHz. The design and implementation will be summarised, and system performance and first operational experience presented. Current and potential future developments of the system will be considered.
