Update: Intermittent power cuts hit Beccles street

Power failures have caused problems in Beccles for a second day.

Businesses along Blyburgate have seen their power go on and off from 11.30am today as engineers from UK Power service work to fix the problem.

Shortly before 11.30am a row of business were plunged into darkness.

Engineers returned to a substation near to the library, where they were yesterday, to work on the problem, and by 12.30pm power was restored to all but two businesses.

These were restored an hour later, but at 2pm other businesses had lost power.
