Hundreds hit by city power cuts

Have your say

Hundreds of homes in the Capital were left without electricity by two separate power cuts.

Homes in the north of Edinburgh lost electricity for about half an hour following a cable fault in Telford Road at around midday yesterday.

At 8pm, fire crews were called to a smoking manhole cover when fuses in an underground linkbox blew, with 80 customers cut off in Gorgie.

A ScottishPower spokeswoman said: “We apologise for any inconvenience.”
