Aldershot power cut hits 10,000 customers

A power cut in Hampshire temporarily left about 10,000 customers without electricity.

Southern Electric said the outage, affecting the Aldershot area, happened shortly before 21:00 GMT.

A spokesman for the company said power had been restored to about 7,000 homes by 21:30 GMT.

The company was unable to say when power would be restored to the remaining 3,000 homes in the GU11 and GU12 postcodes.
