We can confirm that there was a power cut in York on Thursday 26 April at around 12.40pm, which affected 3,282 properties in the YO23 and YO24 areas of the city. Power was restored to 2,133 properties by automatically re-routing the electricity supply on the network at round 2.20pm yesterday afternoon.
The remaining 1,149 properties were restored via generators connected to the substations lastnight at 11.40pm.
