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.
