    Sounds like a local problem then.

    The flat I used to live in would often lose power, 4 or 5 times each winter, along with the 5 or 10 adjoining properties.
    Across the rosd was still on.

    It was a fault in the big green trasformer box down the road.
    As far as I know it's still not been fixed yet, but I moved so it does't bother me any more.
    I don't know everything. - But I'm good at searching for, and finding, stuff.

    Silly them not fixing it where you used to live Nuke.

    Yes seems the power cut to do some urgent works kicked off this problem because It's been fine until then. I cooked dinner & it wasn't burnt so very pleased I asked. And hopefully anyone else who is having problems will get sorted out start of next week. I'm guessing they might have to cut the power to fix it.

    Sounds like a transformer problem and they are running it at reduced power until they can fix it properly.
    Which as you say will probably mean it going off again.

    The one at my last place has had problems for years, but it will need heavy lifting gear to replace it and access is limited so they just keep patching it up.

    Just another thing, you can call 105 to report a power cut (I believe this allows you to check to get updates as well.)

    We had a bit of flickering with yesterdays storm, but thankfully not power cuts. Despite quite a few in the county overall

    Arh can understand why it's not getting fixed then Nuke, but one day the patching up will stop working.

    Thanks for the link TheFlyingKidney have bookmarked it

    Will see what happens this week with the electric, hopefully if they do switch it off it will be in daylight hours this time
