Power workers still trying to mend fault which cut electricity supplies to Southrepps four days ago

Power workers are still excavating a faulty cable which left nearly 300 north Norfolk village customers near Cromer without electricity for up to nine hours last Friday, March 16.

A spokesman for UK Power Networks said nobody was currently off supply following the underground cable fault which left 282 Southrepps customers without electricity at 1.10pm last Friday.

'Power was restored in stages with 160 customers having their electricity restored between 2.14pm and 2.39pm on Friday. A further four customers were restored at 3.56pm. The remaining customers were restored through generators, with 53 having electricity supplies back at 8.50pm and 65 customers at 10.01pm,' he added.

'We appreciate how difficult it is to be without electricity and apologise to all those affected.'
