HOMES have been left without electricity after a power cut.

An unplanned power cut hit homes in High Wycombe this morning (November 14).

Residents in the HP12 4LA and HP12 4LD postcode area in Castlefield were left without power at about 8.22am.

SSE apologised to its customers over the sudden loss of supply.

“We currently have a fault affecting the areas listed. Our engineers are on site working hard to get the power back on as quickly as they can,” the provider said.

Power is expected to be restored by 1.30pm, SSE estimated.

The power cut comes just as the Met Office warned of a thunderstorm moving across Buckinghamshire and south of England.
