Fire and power-cut causes traffic disruption

By Joanne Ford


A blaze at an electricity sub-station in Leicester caused disruption to traffic throughout this morning and into the afternoon.

The fire caused a power-cut across large parts of Leicester, including to some traffic lights, with police having to step in to direct traffic in places.


When this video was taken the traffic lights were already working again, but traffic was still moving slowly.

All the shops of the retail park on St Margaret’s Way in Leicester were closed due to the fire, including Halfords, The Range and Carpet Right.
