Over 3,000 homes and properties in Lincoln were left without electricity today after a fault on the power grid. The buildings affected are supplied by E-on, who have reported the problem to be a “high voltage” fault.

Power blackouts began in the morning on Thursday, November 25th, with residents in the Doddington Park area hit by power outage around 10:30am.
