Originally, 553 homes were without power for up to 70 minutes.

A UK Power Networks spokesman said: “We appreciate how difficult it can be to experience a power cut and would like to apologise for the inconvenience caused by this fault.”

  • Our street was affected by the power cuts. However, a real community spirit took over with people coming out into the streets with torches to chat and see what was going on. Those who could access social media kept everyone up to date as well. Will there be a baby boom in Norwich around NovDec 2014?
