Reading power cut affects 1,000 homes

About 1,000 homes in west Reading were without electricity following a power cut on Tuesday night.

The power went off around 19:00 GMT in the area of Wilson Road, Kenilworth Avenue and Southcote Lane, but was restored at about 20:30.

Southern Electric said it would now begin "a fault-finding exercise to find out what caused the problem".

The company said it had switched electricity supplies around in an effort to restore power.
