Power has now been restored to nearly 1,000 homes in south Nottingham.

WPD tweeted the power was down in Nottingham just before 9:30am this morning, stating it would be restored by 11am.

However, the power was not back on until 2:07pm this afternoon, three hours after WPD stated it would be resolved.

The NG12 area covers Cotgrave, Radcliffe on Trent, Keyworth and Edwalton – leaving around 1,000 homes without electricity.
