Over 10,000 homes briefly left without power in Burnham-On-Sea

Thousands of homes in Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge were briefly left without electricity on Saturday evening (November 9th) after a power cut hit the town.

Western Power Distribution confirmed to that 10,618 households were without electricity following the interruption to supplies at 5pm.

Homes were re-connected within a matter of seconds and Western Power's spokesman Andrew Causely said: "The outage was caused by a trip in our 33,000 volt network. A sub-station switched the town's supply over to a back-up."

He apologised for any inconvenience and said an investigation is underway into the cause.
