Power has now been restored in Chichester


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.”
