On its website, the operator said: “There was a power cut in this area earlier. Our engineers worked hard to fix it and your power should now be back on.

“We are sorry for any trouble this may have caused you.”

It advised anyone still experiencing problems to try resetting trip switches or to get in touch directly.

The power cut was attributed to engineers having to redirect power due to a fault on the electricity network.
