POWER has been restored to hundreds of homes across Newbury and Thatcham following a fault earlier today.

Properties in the area were left with no electricity for much of this morning because of the cable fault between Love Lane substation and The Lawns.

SSEN (Scottish and Southern Energy Networks) has confirmed all but three homes are now back on supply.

A SSEN spokesperson said: “We would like to apologise to customers in the Speen area following a powercut today.

"Our engineers were made aware of a fault affecting 805 customers at 9:43am. Once on site, our engineers located a cable fault between Love Lane substation and The Lawns.

"The majority of customers are now back on supply with the exception of three properties that will be restored via a generator at approximately 4pm.

"We will then return to site to carry out the full repairs.”
