More than 100 homes have with out power for almost 12 hours in Frizington.

Electricity North West currently has engineers on site.

A spokesman for the energy supplier 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 time scales 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."
