In a statement today, a Hampshire Constabulary spokesperson said issues with the 101, non emergency number had arisen following a power outage and anyone trying to call may not be able to get through and continued: 

"We would greatly appreciate your patience whilst the 101 number is being repaired, we have a team working to fix this as quickly as possible. We would like to thank everyone for their patience whilst this is being sorted."

A team of engineers is working to fix the problem as quickly as possible. Please be assured that the 999 emergency number is unaffected but may be busier than usual.
