Homes lost heating and light just after 6pm on Friday evening.  Eletectity supplier UK Power who is the area power supplier said that power was likely to be off until at lease 9.30pm on Friday.

They said we’re sorry for any disruption this may be causing you.  They estimate the power will be back on by 9.30pm
