Anger over Windermere power cuts

Businesses in Windermere are angry about a series of power cuts that have been affecting them since February.

They say it's led to a loss of trade and want the problem to be sorted out as quickly as possible.

Electricity North West says there were four short power cuts in February and March caused by two separate faults at a local substation, which affected 40 customers.

There have since been two more cuts on the 1st of August which affected 22 people.

The cause is being investigated but Electricity North West thinks it is due to an increase in demand in the area.

"I would like to apologise to customers. We are closely monitoring the local network to locate and resolve the issue as quickly as possible.

"If customers experience any issues with their electricity they can call our 24 hour emergency line on 0800 195 4141."
