More than 100 homes in a north Norfolk town are without power because of an electricity line fault.

UK Power Networks is working on restoring electricity to 119 homes in the North Walsham area, and expects to have their power back on between 2pm and 3pm today (Thursday, October 11).

The utility said: “We were investigating a high voltage overhead electricity line fault which caused a power cut in the local area.”

UK Power Networks said it had received 35 calls from customers about the outage, which has affected addresses in the NR28 0 postcode.
