More than 200 properties have been left without power in Wymondham because of a fault with underground cables.

UK Power Networks has reported that 209 customers have been affected by the cut, which was first reported at 9.03am today (Wednesday, April 12).

A spokesman said an underground electricity cable had faulted on the high-voltage network, causing an area-wide power cut.

He said properties with postcodes NR18 0, NR18 9 and NR18 10 were potentially affected.

The estimated time for the power to be restored is between 10.30am and 11.30am.
