A spokeswoman for UK Power Networks said: "Originally, we believed the issue to be a fault on our network, but we have been made aware that due to a tree coming into contact with our overhead cabling, our engineers have had to turn power off remotely in the interest of public safety."

Power was fully restored to the area just before 4pm this afternoon.
