Homes and businesses in and around Wootton remain without power this morning (Wednesday) – more than 12 hours after a power cut first hit.
Supply was lost at 18:45 yesterday evening in the PO33 4 postcode area, resulting in locals being left in complete darkness as night fell.
Initially it was hoped that engineers from Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks would restore supplies by 22:00, then 04:30 and then 06:00.
Now, after more than 12 hours without power, residents have been told their supply may not be restored until 12:00 midday.
A total of 34 postcodes are listed as being affected by the main network fault.
Island Echo is told that engineers have been working at Woodhouse Farm near Barton. There has been indication of a second fault being identified though.
