Cable fault hits power in Glasgow and East Dunbartonshire

Several hundred homes and businesses in East Dunbartonshire and Glasgow were left without electricity on Friday morning after a power cut.

Scottish Power said a cable fault in the Killermont area had affected customers in the G20, G21, G22, G23, G61, G62, G63 and G64 postcodes.

The problem was reported at 09:40 and power was fully restored at 10:18.

Glasgow City Council had warned parents it may have to close schools at short notice if the problem continued.

Scottish Power has apologised to customers for loss of supply due to the cable fault.
