Homes hit by power cut

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION -

THOU­SANDS of homes and busi­nesses in Ash­ford and Ken­ning­ton were left with­out power on Tues­day evening af­ter an elec­tri­cal fault.

The power cut lasted al­most an hour, and af­fected houses in Lit­tle Bur­ton, By­brook and Si­mone Weil Av­enue, where Sains­bury’s su­per­mar­ket was left with­out elec­tric­ity.

Re­becca Hopkinson, spokes- man for elec­tric­ity firm EDF En­ergy, said: “Sev­eral thou­sand cus­tomers in the Ash­ford area ex­pe­ri­enced an in­ter­rup­tion to their power sup­ply at 5.40pm, fol­low­ing a fault on a piece of elec­tri­cal equip­ment at one of our sub­sta­tions.

“EDF En­ergy Net­works en­gi­neers worked to re­store power as quickly as pos­si­ble and all sup­plies were re­stored at 6.32pm.”
