HUNDREDS of homes were left without electricity after a power cut. Homes in the Werrington area had their supply cut off at 6.42pm yesterday due to a fault on the underground network. Distributor EDF Energy said homes in postcode areas PE4 6, PE4 7 and PE6 7 were affected. Some regained power by 7.20pm. EDF sent out engineers and said all homes were expected to be reconnected before 11pm.
