Some Islanders Affected By Power Cut

power station 1Some Scilly residents were without power at around 1pm yesterday lunchtime.

Western Power Manager Ritchie Christopher says the cause of the outage wasn’t clear but there were similarities with the effects of a bird flying into an overhead wire.

The power cut affected users on the so-called ‘Tresco circuit.’

Customers between that island and the power station, including McFarlands Down and the Lower Moors, were without electricity for around 25 minutes.
