Around 1,250 homes in Cumbria are without electricity this morning after severe weather battered the region.
A spokeswoman for Electricity North West said: "Engineers will be out at first light to try and restore power to affected homes."
Up to 3,500 were cut off at the height of the power outages last night following strong winds and heavy rain.
