1,000 properties in west Cumbria hit by power cut

One thousand premises were left in the dark, after a power cut hit an area of Workington.

Electricity North West confirmed that a fault with an underground cable affected the Moss Bay Road area of the town at about 9.15pm.

Firefighters and police were both called to the area after the power cut set off automated fire and burglar alarms.

A spokesman for the utility company told the News & Star: “Just over 1,000 customers were affected by a power cut in Workington last night.

“We were able to get power restored to customers by 10.40pm.”

He apologised to those affected by the cut.

The biggest scotch egg in the world - can Cumbria crack the record?

Yes. There's nothing we don't know about food - or portion control.

Hope so - another feather in our cap.

What a waste of time. Just silly.
