Businesses and homes across Stevenage were briefly affected by a power cut this morning.

At 11.24am power went out across the SG1, SG2 and SG3 post codes.

UK Power Network issued a statement saying the outage was caused by a fault with an underground power cable which caused an ‘area wide’ power cut.

A spokesman for the firm said: “We are sorry for any trouble this may have caused you. If you are still experiencing problems try resetting your trip switches or contact us and we will be able to help.”

Some businesses told the Comet they had to temporarily close while they rebooted their computer systems.
