More than 230 homes in Norwich were without power for an hour following an unexpected power cut.

UK Power Networks became aware of the power cut which affected 236 homes in the NR2 3 postcode shortly before 10pm on Wednesday night (May 22).

Engineers arrived on the scene at 10.10pm to investigate the outage which was found to be caused by a fault on an underground electricity cable on the high voltage network.
