Almost 150 customers in Stalham, North Walsham, Worstead, Dilham, Bacton, Mundesley, Edingthorpe and Ingham Corner lost power at 9.55am on Monday morning.

The power outage was caused by a high voltage overhead electricity line fault.

A spokesperson from UK Power Networks said: "We became aware of this power cut at 9.55am. We're sorry for any disruption this may have caused you.

"We didn't know in advance there would be a power cut, but now that we know, our teams will do everything they can to get your power back quickly.
