A power cut was still affecting parts of the city more than six hours after the morning's outage first started.
The disruption is believed to have started around 11.13am on Saturday (October 16) morning due to a fault with an underground cable.
As a result, more than 50 homes and businesses are reportedly impacted by the outage, with NR1 3 and NR2 1 postcodes being hit hardest.
Having initially estimated to have power restored by 3pm, that time has been delayed.
A spokesperson for UK Power Networks said: "Thanks for your patience over today.
"We've remotely diverted electricity around the faulty part of the network, restoring power to four properties. This leaves 62 properties affected.
"Our engineers have been in contact with us to let us know that they are in the process of diverting the remaining supplies around the underground network fault.
"To give them time to do this safely, the estimated timeframe to restore your power is now between 6.30pm and 7.30pm.
