Businesses and homes in Lancaster were left without electricity on Wednesday night following a power cut.

Electricity North West said that 53 customers in North Road and Chapel Street were affected by the outage, which started at 6.40pm on Wednesday, November 12.

A spokeswoman said that the cut was caused by an underground cable fault, and that ongoing United Utilities nearby was not linked to the problem.
