Power has been restored to hundreds of homes left without power after a stormy night in west Norfolk.

UK Power Networks said supplies had to be shut off to around 780 properties, mainly in villages between King's Lynn and Downham Market, so repairs could be carried out to the main network.

Some properties around Narborough, Middleton and East Winch were also affected.

The firm said supplies were turned back on around 9.30am.
