Residents in Gosberton were relieved to get a call from Western Power explaining a number of power cuts that had affected them in the past two weeks.

A reader called the Spalding Guardian after losing power yesterday at 2pm for an hour.

We called Western Power on her behalf and within minutes the company had made calls to all residents who had complained.

Our caller said: “A few of us who had called Western Power got courtesy calls explaining what had happened.

”I had told them we were elderly and needed our tea.”

A spokesman for Western Power said: “A damaged pole and broken stay wire was discovered this afternoon, so power had to be removed to enable them to carry out emergency repairs.

“On January 1, a circuit breaker tripped but was restored automatically within a couple of minutes.”
