Hundreds TWICE left without power in Scunthorpe - DN15 to DN19 postcode areas
Two power cuts this morning (Thurs Feb 7) left hundreds of Scunthorpe homes, offices and shops in the dark.
A fault in the electricity network occurred at 10.23am.
Northern Power Grid said it was unable to give a forecast when supplies would be restored to postcode areas DN15, DN16, DN17 and DN19. But the power supply was restored at 11.11am.
However, at 11.30am the lights went out again - for about 15 minutes - before appliances sprang back into life for a second time this morning.

Scunthorpe General Hospital switched over to back-up generators while the grid supply was off.
A spokeswoman for North Lincolnshire Magistrates’ Court, off Laneham Street, said: “We were affected by the power cuts for a couple of minutes in the back offices and the power in the court house went off twice, but no cases were delayed.”
