A supermarket has reopened after it was forced to shut due to an electrical fault.
Asda in the High Street, Ramsgate, reopened at 12.50pm but is not selling any fresh or frozen produce because of the issue.
A delivery is expected at around 5.30pm with an emergency order expected to arrive tomorrow morning.
A spokesman for Asda said: "Due to a power cut in the local area we were forced to close our Ramsgate store early last night.
"We're pleased to say the store is open again now and our colleagues are working hard to ensure our shelves are stocked as quickly as possible.
"We're really sorry for any inconvenience caused to our customers during this time."
Power was lost at around 8.30pm last night, affecting more than 20 houses in the area as well as the supermarket.
Engineers attended the scene about an hour later but a specialist cable repair team was required. They were deployed this morning.
A UK Power Networks spokesman said: "We were made aware of a power cut in the High Street area of Ramsgate at around 8.30pm on Friday, December 1.
"Engineers were on site by 9.40pm to investigate and found that a specialist cable repair team were required to restore supplies.
"The team attended on Saturday morning and all supplies were restored by 8.57am. We apologise for any disruption caused by the power cut."
