A broken power line left 1,300 households on the Westside in the dark this morning ( Wednesday November 21st) with power supplies interrupted from 8.30am onwards.

Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) said that homes and businesses from Barvas to Ness were affected by the outage.

A team of engineers quickly located the fault and most customers were reconnected by 11am.

As of 12 noon, about 30 customers around Airidhantium remain without power and SSEN engineers are working on that local fault.

All customers are expected to be back on supply by 3.30pm at the latest.
