Power has been restored to almost all homes in Suffolk for Christmas Day.
UK Power Networks engineers have been working to reconnect homes in the region after high winds and debris brought down power lines in Monday’s storms.
This morning there were around 150 properties in the county still without power, following gales in the early hours of yesterday.
A spokesman for UK Power Networks said nearly all homes in the East of England had now been reconnected.
She said: “Things are virtually back to normal now in the east of England, apart from a few isolated areas where engineers are working to restore supplies this morning. To report any power cuts in the East of England customers can ring 0800 783 8838.”
