Wasdale switch on

The residents of Wasdale Head in the Lake District are being re-connected to mains electricity today.

Power to the remote village went off on Christmas Eve last year due to a fault with an underwater cable in Wast Water.

The villagers have had to make do with a noisy generator for the past ten months.

The remote village of Wasdale Head in the Lake District will have its power switched back on today. It has been relying on generator power since December 2011 when a cable under Wastwater (England's deepest lake) was damaged.
