A large area of mid Norfolk is currently without electricity following a power cut.

Properties in the 'NR20 3' area of the county were hit by the outage at around 11.36am this morning (September 27).

Having been made aware of the power cut, UK Power Networks was forced to switch off electricity across the area just after midday, allowing its engineers to repair an underground network fault.

Mattishall, Hockering and Elsing are among the locations affected.

Power was restored by engineers at around 1pm.
