Power cut hit homes



First published in

Homes in Headington, Oxford, were left without power for 12 hours because a parked car was blocking access to an electricity substation.

More than 700 homes in the Demesne Furze area lost power at 5.10pm on Sunday. About 600 of those had power restored by 6.10pm, but another 131 had to wait until 5am yesterday.
