Stoke-on-Trent properties hit by power cut

Power cuts have affected hundreds of homes and firms in an area of Stoke-on-Trent.

An estimated 1,700 homes and businesses in Tunstall lost power at about 0330 BST because of a fault on the high-voltage network, a spokesman for Eon Central Networks said.

Engineers restored electricity to about 1,000 properties within several hours.

Power was restored to the remainder of the properties by 0900 BST, the firm said later.
