200 homes still without power in north Wales

Around 200 homes are still without power in north Wales after another night of heavy rain and strong winds.

Yesterday, 700 homes were without electricity after a day of poor weather conditions.

Engineers worked into the night to restore power to around 500 homes, but gales and flooding have been hampering their efforts this morning.
