A power cut has left nearly 2,000 homes without electricity this morning.

Homes and businesses in Aldeburgh and the surrounding villages have been affected by the issue. 

UK Power Network engineers are at the scene and are working hard to fix the problem. 

A spokesman for the power company said:"We believe the issue is an overhead fault that initially interrupted power to 1953 properties.

"However, we have managed to divert power back to some properties, so 303 properties are still affected.

"Specialist engineers from our control room will continue to divert power remotely, so your power may come back on at any point.

"Sometimes we can't restore everyone this way, so we're also sending staff to check our equipment."

Power is expected to be restored by 9.30am.
