Power outages are being reported across parts of Hadleigh, Layham and Raydon after UK Power Networks reported a lorry had damaged an overhead wire in the area.

The outage has also struck the Hadleigh Health Centre, leaving it without telephone lines and computer systems. However visitors to the centre say the staff are coping well under the conditions.

Two outages are currently being reported in the area, one due to the damage after the lorry collision and another so engineers can carry out emergency works to fix the problem.

It is believed the collision happened in Inkerman Close, Hadleigh.

UK Power Networks say more than 400 of the affected homes should have power restored by 12.30pm today (Monday, July 1).

Another 87 homes have not been given an estimated time for the repair.
