Power has been restored to around 200 homes in Cowley after an earlier electrical fire.

Houses in the OX4 postcode around Hollow Way were affected for most of the day after a fire at 10.30am.

A spokesman for Scottish and Southern Electricity said a fire in an electricity link box had caused the power cut.

Initially 80-100 homes were hit while engineers put out the fire. 

An additional 80-100 homes also had their power switched off to enable the problem to be fixed.

Houses in the OX4 2NE, OX4 2NX and OX4 2NZ postcodes were affected.
