Lauren Abbott, who lives on the estate, said: “It was on this morning but went off at about 8am.

“When I left the house at about midday it wasn’t back on.

“I phoned BT and said the storm had knocked something out.

“It happened about two or three weeks ago with the last storm too, it seems that every time there’s a bit of bad weather, it can’t hold it’s own.”
