Northern Power Grid says 25,000 homes are still without power in North Yorkshire, Northumberland and County Durham.
We can confirm that we have completed a major repair in Whitby and restored supplies to 12,000 properties affected.
As at 15:00, there were around 25,000 customers without power supplies across 180 identified faults on our network, with the worst affected areas being those on high ground in southwest Northumberland, west County Durham, the North Yorkshire Moors and some parts of West Yorkshire.
Our engineers are continuing to work in difficult conditions to restore power to those customers affected as quickly as possible.
