Saturday Night Power Cut Affects Several Thousand

Tuesday February 11 2014


We Are Barnsley We Are Barnsley


NEARLY 2,000 homes in the town were without power on Saturday evening.

WABers flocked to the page to say there were issues in parts of the town centre, Dodworth, Hoyland and Royston.

A spokesman from Northern Powergrid confirmed that a power cut had affected the area around the S70 area.

He said: "We received reports at 7.50pm on Saturday evening about the problem in Barnsley, but power was restored at 8.29pm.

"A fault with underground power cables was to blame, but the team responded quickly and the 1,900 customers who were affected soon had their power back on."
