Holbeach homes hit by power failure

Have your say

MORE than 2,000 properties were left without power in the Holbeach area following a fault with an underground cable.

The electricity went off at about 4am on Saturday.

It came back on within minutes at some homes, while all properties had power restored by 5.30am.

Michael Clarke, spokesman for Western Power Distribution, said: “We apologise for any inconvenience this power cut may have caused.

“We managed to locate the fault and get the power back on as soon as possible.

“The faulty underground cable was then repaired on Sunday.”
