More than 300 homes and businesses have been left without electricity after a powercut.
Buildings in west Norfolk towns and villages including King's Lynn, Castle Rising, Dersingham, Titchwell, Burnham Market, East Rudham and parts of Downham Market were affected by the cut.
UK Power Networks were made aware of the power cut at 1.38pm on Thursday, February 20.
The reason for the powercut is thought to be a high voltage overhead electricity line fault.
UK Power Networks said: "We didn't know in advance there would be a power cut, but now that we know, our teams will do everything they can to get your power back quickly.

"However, using an average timescale for this type of power cut, we're hoping to have the power back on between 5pm and 6pm.
"This timeframe may change if the fault is more complex than anticipated, but we'll keep you updated with our progress."
