Businesses hit by power cut
TOWN centre businesses were without electricity after a power cut affected more than 200 properties.
There were 223 premises in the SK11 postcode left without power when it was first reported on the morning of Thursday, August 3.
Engineers from Electricity North West attended to work on the problem and all properties had power restored by just after 7pm.

“Power at all properties was restored at 7.03pm and there was no further issues with this fault.”
