A popular food and crafts market has temporarily shut after an electrical fire triggered a power outage.
Fire crews were called to the The Old Kent Market in Fort Hill, Margate on Friday evening to reports of an electrical box alight.
Two fire engines arrived around 6pm and crews used dry power fire extinguishers to put the blaze out and isolate the power.
However, cuts to the supply meant businesses who occupy the property were unable to ply their trade.
Yesterday the market posted on social media: "Hi all, unfortunately we have been struck by a power cut here at the market and will not be open today or tomorrow.
"Hopefully this will be fixed ASAP. I will keep everyone updated when it has been fixed."
