The power is being switched off temporarily in planned works so that the utility company can carry out repairs in the specified areas.

It comes as some planned power cuts in the region, due to take place yesterday, were cancelled.

The work from Northern Powergrid is not unusual and follows a similar pattern from all utility companies, who often carry out work to improve the network.

The list below is taken from the Northern Powergrid directly.

If your household has not yet received advanced communication about a planned power cut, you are not scheduled to see your supply cut off.
