A POWER cut has hit homes in the Newport area.
The fault was reported shortly before 2am this morning (Wednesday) and seven postcode areas remain without power.
Southern and Scottish Energy said it hoped to restore supplies by 9am.
A statement posted on its website said: “We apologise for the loss of supply. Our engineers are on site working to get the power back on as quickly as they can. If you need more information, please call us on 0800 072 7282 and quote reference CR9282.”
The company advised customers yesterday of possible power cuts due to high winds.
