Thousands of homes still without power after storm

Latest figures this morning show there are still 15,000 properties in the East of England and 3,500 in the South East without power. The counties back to normal are:

  • Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Norfolk and Cambridgeshire
  • Engineers are aiming aim to have 98 per cent of power supplies affected by the storm restored by the end of today
  • The final homes should be restored by the end of the week

I would like to thank people who are still without power for their patience, and stress that we are working to restore all supplies as quickly as is safely possible.

A lot of hard of work is going on round the clock and we are making good progress with repairs.
