  • Homes in parts of Taunton and Devon were also affected.
  • Supplies were restored at around 12noon.



Power has been restored to some homes but engineers are still working on the fault so supplies may go off and on again.


WPD says there is a high voltage fault in the area. Engineers are currently fault finding so people may see their power going off and on.
