MORE than 400 homes are still without electricity following a power cut this morning.

Properties in Speen, Donnington and Wickham are being affected by a fault in the circuit that occurred just after 9.30am this morning.

Engineers have been working since 9.45am and expect power to be restored to all homes by 2pm.

Up to 3,000 homes were originally without power, but the number has now been reduced to 414.

A spokesman for Southern Electric Power Distribution said: "We apologise to customers for any disruption or inconvenience caused. Engineers are working hard to resolve the issue."
