An update from Scottish and Southern :We have 2 faults affecting customers with an SO postcode which went off at very similar times. The first one happened at 00:03 and took off 2694 customers however this is now down to 600 customer. The second fault happened at 00:12 and took off 1794 customer however we got 1304 of these customers back on within 2 minutes meaning we now have 493 customers off on this fault. We now have 1093 customers still off and hope to have most of these restored by 3am.
