Power cut affects 700

Worcester News: Power cut affects 700 Power cut affects 700

A TOTAL of 700 people were affected by a power cut in Worcester this morning.

The power cut, which was caused by an underground cable fault, affected Western Power Distribution customers - including the Worcester News offices - in St John's, Barbourne and Bevere at 11.30am.

The majority of people had power restored within the hour, but around 100 people are still without power.

A spokeswoman for the power company said it is hoped they will be back on in the next couple of hours as a generator is on its way to the site.

Workmen are trying to locate the fault in order to repair it.

Yes we lost power at about 8pm last night and it was not restored until 06.45 this morning, but I did receive a lovely phone call from Western Power apologising for the loss of power. I wish all service providers were like them. :)
