Scottish and Southern Electricity say their engineers are on site at the moment.

The problem was reported just after midday today (Tuesday November 20th) and is affecting 7 postcode areas in the Stratford sub Castle area:

  • SP1 3JN
  • SP1 3JZ
  • SP1 3LA
  • SP1 3LB
  • SP1 3LD
  • SP1 3LG
  • SP1 3LQ

On their website, SSEN has said:

"We're sorry for the loss of supply. We currently have a fault affecting the areas listed. Our engineers are on site working hard to get the power back on as quickly as they can."

The company's told us the reason for the loss of power is a cable fault that needs repairing.

SSEN has switched off the supply for the safety of their workers and residents while that issue is fixed,

At this stage, it's hoped that the power will be restored by 6.00pm tonight.
