OVER a hundred households have been affected by a power cut in Barrow Island.

Electricity North West first received a report at 1.28pm., and predicts the time of restoration to be 7.23pm. 

155 customers in postcodes LA14 2TX, 2TU and 2TT have been left without supply. 

A spokesperson from the electricity company said: "This power cut has been caused by an unexpected incident with the underground cable that provides electricity to your home or business. We didn't know before your electricity went off that this was going to happen but now we know, rest assured we will get your power back on safely and as quickly as possible.

"Please note that all our timescales are estimated based on previous experience and may change if new information becomes available while our engineers are fixing the issue. With underground power cuts, we may need to dig to repair the cable and this can sometime extend the length of time you are without power."
