Homes lose power for the evening

HUNDREDS of homes in Henley, Wargrave and Crazies Hill were left without power for more than nine hours on Tuesday evening.

Scottish and Southern Energy Network sad the problem was caused by damage to an overhead electric cable in Wargrave.

The traffic lights on Henley Bridge and at Conway Bridge in Wargrave Road were knocked out and businesses in Thames Side and Hart Street, Henley, were affected. An SSEN spokeswoman  said: “At 4.55pm on Tuesday, a wire came down in the Wargrave area, resulting in loss of power for 384 customers in Henley, Wargrave and Crazies Hill.

“Engineers worked to safely restore the power and all customers were back on supply by 2.36am on Wednesday.

“SSEN would like to apologise to customers who were affected and thank them for their patience.”
