Supplies return after Dumfries power cut

Scottish Power has got properties back online after a power cut which affected sites across a large part of Dumfries.

Supplies were lost shortly before 11:00 on Friday in the DG1 postcode area.

A Scottish Power spokesman said they had dealt with "pockets" of problems across the town.

The company said it was working to try to switch properties over to alternative supplies and many sites had been reconnected shortly after 12:00.
