Electricity restored to almost 500 homes following power cut
Almost 500 homes across Suffolk are without power this morning following problems with an overhead line.
Homes across a number of areas including Sudbury, Hintlesham, Hadleigh and Somersham are thought to be affected.
The power cut initially affected more than 1,000 homes in the area but UK Power Networks, which looks after power lines locally, said it had managed to re-route power to more than half of the homes affected.
Engineers were sent to the area at around 9am to fix the issue, which UK Power Networks had hoped would be fixed between 10.30am and 11.30am.
By Thursday afternoon only 46 homes remained without power.

UK Power Networks said in a statement on its website: "At this point we think the issue is an overhead fault that initially interrupted power to 1,219 properties.
"Engineers are now on site, carrying out investigations into the fault. Once they have completed their assessment, they will carry out repairs."
