Power cut in Ropsley

Have your say

ROPSLEY and the surrounding area has been without power for most of the afternoon (Monday).

It is not yet known what is causing the problem, which started at about 3pm.

The electricity company which supply the area, Western Power Distribution, are looking into the problem but were unable to comment because their computer systems are down.

James Sentance, who lives in the village, said: “Hopefully it will be back on soon, fingers crossed!

“Being in the sticks, everything is electric, cooker, shower the lot so until it comes back on, it’s just going to be a chilly long night.”
