Traffic lights and homes lose power
MOTORISTS faced confusion when a power cut that effected nearly 80 homes caused town centre traffic lights to stop working.
EDF Energy Networks had to isolate supplies in the Tacket Street area of Ipswich around 6.40pm tonight following a report of a suspected fault at a substation.
Supplies to 78 customers were cut off and police confirmed that traffic lights in the area had stopped working.
It included the lights close to the Regent theatre in St Helen’s Street and further along at the junction with St Margaret’s Street and St Margaret’s Green.
Engineers investigated and found the equipment was working normally so all supplies were restored within 17 minutes.
