A fault on the underground power network in the Burford and Rochford area was detected at 8.23pm on Thursday.

Engineers from Western Power Distribution were in the area in just over one hour and were working on restoring the fault.

Power for some started to be restored in the early hours of Friday, but it wasn't until 4.38pm on Friday when all properties had electricity services restored.

Western Power Distribution said it was sorry for any inconvenience that was caused by the power cut.
