A spokesman said: “Electricity supplies were interrupted to 490 customers in the Ethelbert Road area of Deal at 11.18am today.

"The majority of supplies, 403, were restored just after 12.30pm.

"The final supplies were reconnected in stages between 1.18pm and 1.40pm.

"It was caused by a fault on our underground electricity network. We’re sorry for any inconvenience caused."

It comes after 453 homes in Worth and Sandwich lost power yesterday.

UK Power Networks explained the issue was due to a fault on overhead lines.
