Hundreds of homes on the Norfolk and Suffolk border saw power supplies disrupted due to a faulty overhead cable.
UK Power Networks said more than 650 homes and businesses around Scole, Dickleburgh, Eye and Fressingfield had been affected by the power losses at about 9.15am today (December 9).
Engineers were called in to reconnect supplies. The affected postcodes include IP21 4, IP21 5, IP23 7 and IP23 8.
At 9.45am UK Power Networks said: "We think the issue is a faulty overhead cable that initially interrupted power to 660 properties. However, by rerouting electricity in the area, currently 237 customers are still affected."
All the affected properties were reconnected by midday.
