A power cut is affecting homes and businesses in Ryde’s busy shopping district this morning (Wednesday).
Some 13 postcodes in the Union Street, St Thomas’ Street and Union Lane area are without electricity supply as a result of a fault that developed just before 09:20.
It means that shoppers may find local shops, eateries and banks closed for business.
Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks say they are aware of the issue and engineers are working to resolve the situation as quickly as possible. It is currently predicted that power will be restored by 12:40.
UPDATE – Power has now been restored to affected properties.
