For quite some time you've been able to request local times in Google by searching for "time London" or "time now in London" (for example).

The result was the actual time in that location, above the main results.

This feature is now removed... I'm wondering if it's linked to the many sites who specialise in providing local times?

Matt Cutts of Google said [seroundtable.com] it is a temporary thing and we should see it come back in a week or so.

That's great to hear! I'm a heavy user of the service :)

Looks like the time search feature is back, and now it has an alarm clock icon. And if you use an ambiguous location name, such as Portland, they give you a list of "Portlands" to look at.

It looks like they've gone to the trouble of making the colour of the alarm clock icon change depending on whether it's day or night, and the hands on the icon actually shows the correct time too. Cute.
