The cause of the power cut is because of damage to equipment.

A spokesperson for Electricity North West said:

Power supplies have been removed to customers to allow our engineers to safely carry out repairs. Our engineers are working to get customers power supply back on as soon as possible. We would like to apologise for any inconvenience and thank customers for their support."
