More than 450 left without power tonight have had their electricity restored.

Earlier tonight some 469 homes had no electricity and the company’s power map said it could be 3am before power is restored.

But by 7.30pm the company said it had restored energy to more than 400 homes.

And within an hour of arriving on-site, the company said just 137 homes were left without power.
