Power Outage, VOM – 01/07/2015

A large power cut caused by this afternoons storm is currently affecting service in the following areas:

Appleton Wiske, Worsall, Welbury, Newlands, Picton, West Raunton

Northern Powergrid hope to restore mains power by 5:30PM.


Northern Powergrid have now revised their estimate for the works to be completed due to a large demand for engineers to 7:15PM.


Northern Powergrid have again revised their estimated fix time, unfortunately they can’t currently give an estimated time at the moment due to the large number of areas without power.


Northern Powergrid haven’t provided any further status updates as yet.

UPDATE @ 12AM 02/07/2015

Northern Powergrid have an engineer travelling to site, some areas are estimated to have power restored by 1AM. Those sites that connect via Appleton Wiske (such as Worsall) will be offline until power is restored to our main repeater in Appleton Wiske even if local power is restored first.
