Power cut leaves supermarket in the dark

By Luke Williamson

A Loughborough supermarket was plunged into darkness after power-cuts hit the town on Sunday(JAN31).

Morrisons in the Gorse Covert Shopping Centre suffered the outage in the afternoon, and B&M in Willowbrook Park was also hit.

Western Power Distribution said the power cut happened at around 3:15pm.

Residents living around the shops reported power cuts in Knightthorpe Road and Windsor Road, but others said their power flicked on and off, or that their broadband cut out briefly.

Western Power apologised for the disruption on Twitter and had the services back up and running by 5pm.
