More than 100 homes in Cromer are still waiting to have electricity restored after a major power cut this morning.

Over 1,000 homes and businesses in the seaside town lost power at 8.13am.

UK Power Networks said a suspected 'third party' had caused damage to an electricity cable.

Several shops had to close for part of the busy Easter holidays trading day, including Morrisons supermarket, on Holt Road, which re-opened at 10.30am, and Breakers' Café, on Garden Street, which re-opened at 10.15am.

A UK Power Networks spokesman said: 'We understand how difficult it is to be without power and apologise for any inconvenience this is causing.
