Houses, and many fac­to­ries and work­places at the “top end” of the city came to a grind­ing halt when the power fail­ure struck at about mid­day. Elec­tric­ity, in an area stretch­ing al­most three square miles from Pas­ton to Wer­ring­ton, was off for about an hour. The fail­ure’s cause was un­known.
