Hundreds of homes in parts of Norfolk and Suffolk were left without power after a fault.

UK Power Networks said 458 properties in postcode areas starting with IP24 1, IP24 2 and IP24 3 had been affected - the area around Thetford.

They said they had become aware of the power cut at just before 8am on Sunday, March 7.

Engineers were sent to the scene and the company said that, by just after 9am power had been restored to all but a handful of customers.
