Power cut affects Banbury homes and businesses


For a short time 2,155 properties were without electricity

171 Banbury properties went without power for around four hours yesterday evening (Monday) after a problem with the high voltage supply in the area caused a cut in their supplies.   Parts of the Bankside estate and Sainsbury’s supermarket were affected.

National Grid say they were first notified of the problem at 7.43pm.

A further 1,984 properties in the wider area lost their electricity supply for a short time at around 10.30pm when engineers had to isolate supplies so they could work on the problem.

The issue was finally resolved at 11.04pm.
