More than 150 households in four different post codes were affected by power cuts this morning.

UK Power Networks investigated a high voltage overhead electricity line fault in the Thetford area, including Barnham, Euston, Fakenham Magna, and Rushford.

The company has apologised for any disruption and estimated that power would be restored between 11.30am and 12.30pm.

However, at 12.30pm the estimated time was pushed back to 2.30pm to 3.30pm, with the number of households affected dropping to 48.

Power was restored fully to the area at 2.15pm.
