Hundreds of homes were left without power for more than 11 hours after a supply problem struck during England's Euro 2020 victory over Denmark.
As the nation watched and held its breath, those living in 295 east Norfolk homes were missing out on the drama after their electricity went off.
UK Power Networks said they were made aware of the issue at 8.26pm on Wednesday.
It affected some people living in Acle and numerous villages further south such as Tunstall, Southwood and Cantley, as well as some homes in Caister-on-Sea and the outskirts of Great Yarmouth.
As of 7am on Thursday, 295 properties were still without power.
