All repairs were complete by around 2.45am but we've waited until a reasonable hour as engineers need to enter each home affected to restore power. Power has already been restored to the properties that can be accessed externally. We must go into around 160 properties altogether but hopefully everyone will be back on within a few hours.

A man has been found guilty of murdering his partner, whose body was found in his van after he crashed on his way to dispose of it.
Sian Rees, originally from Aberdare, was strangled by her partner John Doyle, 54, at their home just hours after she had undergone major surgery for breast cancer.
The 50-year-old had decided to end their strained relationship of 15 years after he arrived to drive her home from the hospital so drunk from an all-day drinking session that she had to go against medical advice and get behind the wheel herself.
The court had been told that after she packed clothes at their home in north Devon to go to stay in a hotel on June 30 last year he attacked and killed her.
En route to disposing of her body the next day he crashed his white Ford Fiesta van into a hedge.
Police officers who attended the crash site on July 1 found her body between the front seats. She had been dead for 12 hours.
A jury of four men and eight women at Exeter Crown Court took almost two days to unanimously convict Doyle of murder.
He had claimed that he accidentally killed her after she became hysterical and attacked him with a knife in the kitchen of the house.
