Western Power Distribution told that a total of 9,800 homes in Burnham, Highbridge and Berrow suffered an outage at 5.26pm following a high voltage fault.

A spokesman for Western Power Distribution told "Customers in the Burnham area experienced a short inturruption of power lasting between ten to fifteen seconds this evening."
