HUNDREDS of Barnsley homes were left without power on Sunday afternoon.

The widespread issue saw scores of people flock to We Are Barnsley's Facebook and Twitter pages to report the problem, with areas such as Barugh Green, Cudworth and Dodworth encountering faults.

A Northern Powergrid spokesperson said: "We were made aware of the outage and engineers restored supplies at around 2.30pm. We are sorry for the inconvenience it caused."
