The kick-off for Stoke's Premier League clash with West Ham has been delayed due to a power cut at the bet365 Stadium.

Power was lost around much of the ground just before 2:00pm and had not been recovered by around 2:35pm, at which point the Potters announced the match would not begin at three o'clock as scheduled.

Stoke wrote on Twitter: "A power surge has affected both club generators and the mains supply.

"Kick off will be delayed due to a major power outage. We will make a further announcement after 3.00pm."

The majority of fans were left outside the stadium when the announcement was made because the turnstiles could not be operated to let them in.
