Power cut hits 1,000 households

Monday, December 31, 2012 - 15:16

HIGH WINDS have been blamed for power cuts that affected 1,000 households on the Isle of Wight today (Monday).
Strong winds brought down power cables affecting properties in the South Wight, although by 3pm just six remained without power, according to a Scottish and Southern Energy spokesman.
The spokesman said properties in the Appuldurcombe and Wroxall area lost electricity at noon, but power was restored to most throughout the afternoon, and it was hoped the remaining six households would have electricity back by 4pm.
