Engineers work to find out cause of darkness in Bournemouth
8:00am Saturday 2nd February 2013 in Latest
ENGINEERS were yesterday trying to establish the cause of a fault which plunged hundreds of homes into darkness on Thursday night.
A spokesperson for Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE) said power was restored to all homes in the Boscombe area around 11am.
“There was a fault on the network, which affected around 1,700 customers,” the spokesperson said.
“Our network is flexible and we can re-route customers to minimise the time they are off.
“The fault we believe is with a fault in our underground cable network, which we will be investigating. At present we do not know what caused it but apologise for the disruption.”
