At 4.04pm UK Power Networks engineers arrived on the scene and began investigating the cause of the power outage.

A statement on the UK Power Network's website said: "We didn't know in advance there would be a power cut, but now that we know, our teams will do everything they can to get your power back quickly.

"We're sorry for the disruption this power cut may be causing. If you're worried about elderly or ill neighbours, we can offer help and support to our vulnerable customers during a power cut."

The power is expected to be fully restored to the area sometime between 10.30pm and 11.30pm tonight.
