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."
