Tree branch cuts power to Ropsley

Have your say

HUNDREDS of residents in the Ropsley area were without power for eight hours on Monday afternoon after the wind knocked a tree on to power cables.

The power went out in the 560 homes affected at 1.49pm and was not restored until 7.50pm.

James Sentance, who lives in the area, said: “We couldn’t use the cooker, shower or anything, it just messed the day up. We are prone to power cuts, something should be put in place for it not to happen in the first place.”
