A power cut left 352 homes in Brean and Berrow in the dark on Tuesday evening (November 14th).

A Western Power Distribution spokesman confirmed to Burnham-On-Sea.com: “We had 352 properties without electricity in Brean for about an hour this evening from 5.05pm.”

“It follows third-party damage to the power supply after a contractor dug through an undergroud line.”

Power supplies in the Burnham-On-Sea are also flickered at the time of the incident.
