More than 300 homes in Gorleston and Bradwell went several hours without electricity on Sunday following a power cut.

People living in Burgh Road and the St Hugh’s Green area of Gorleston suffered a power cut at 10.10 on Sunday morning.

A spokesperson for UK Power Networks said an underground cable fault was the reason for the interruption.

It said: “UK Power Networks engineers worked quickly and safely to restore power in stages, with the final 140 customers back on supply at 12.45pm.

“We apologise for any inconvenience caused.”
