Widespread power cut left 100’s of homes without power on Wirral


An investigation is underway after a widespread power cut hit 100’s of homes across this morning, caused by a high voltage power cable failure.

“The network has been re-set and we do not expect the supply to go off again. The fault is still being investigated.”

“We would like to apologise for any inconvenience that was caused.”
