Thanks to VB reader Martin Gibson for alerting us to a power cut in Cowes and East Cowes.
Just before 11am a fault was reported, which affected 2,500 homes. The utility company has been working to locate and repair the fault since then and have managed to restore power to 800 homes.
They say that it is too early to say what caused the fault or how long it would take to permanently repair it, however they do say that power to homes is likely to be restored in stages over the remainder of the morning and afternoon.
We guess those our at work might be cooking the contents of their freezers tonight!
