A Kent family who have been without power since December 23 are bracing themselves for yet another night without electricity.
Alexandr Prisyazhnyuk, 41, relocated to a local hotel with his wife and three children after trees fell on overhead power cables and left their home without power.
Mr Prisyazhnyuk said: "It's pretty bad, I would say, as I haven't had any response from the power company, and all the time they just promise to restore power and they haven't. According to the news, all homes had been reconnected. After that I thought everybody had ignored me and my family."
He now faces further problems as the hotel he has been staying in is fully booked for New Years Eve.
