POWER has now been restored to almost 2,000 homes across the Chichester area after a blackout last night.
The lights went out just after 9pm in parts of Chichester, West Dean, Bosham and Fishbourne.
In a statement last night Scottish and Southern Electric apologised for the power cut and said electricity should be back on by 11pm.
A spokeswoman said: “We have 1,900 customers without power. We have four engineers on site at the moment working to get customers back on.”
