ELECTRICITY to around 100 homes on the Isle of Wight was lost during the early hours of this morning (Friday).

Scottish and Southern Electricity (SSE) engineers were called out to repair a fault on a section of underground cable in East Cowes just before 2am and were on site within the hour.

Engineers were able to restore power to half the affected homes by 5.30am and all but two customers had their power back by midday, a spokeswoman said.
