Hundreds of homes have been without power this morning because of a fault on the network.

UK Power Networks said power had now been restored to all but one customer, whose electricity was expected to be back on by 1pm.

Areas affected in the west of the county included Outwell, Terrington, Castle Rising, Watlington, Middleton and Narborough.

UK Power Networks said an underground electricity cable faulted on its high voltage network, causing what it described as "an area wide power cut".
