Those affected by power cuts not happy with compensation

People in the south east who suffered power cuts during the storms over the festive period are angry with the amount of compensation being offered.

More than a thousand properties in Kent and hundreds in Sussex were without electricity for several days.

UK Power Networks is trebling the standard compensation of £27 to £75 as a 'goodwill gesture'.

Additional payments up to £432 will be offered to those cut off for longer than 48 hours.
