Xmas power cuts hit Tockwith and Sherburn-in-Elmet

SCORES of householders in a village west of York have lost their power supplies for much of Christmas Day.

Northern Powergrid said 60 homes in Tockwith had lost their power at 11.26am because of an unexpected problem with the cables or equipment serving the area.

It originally estimated supplies would be restored by 2.30pm but it now expects this to happen by 7pm.

Sherburn-in-Elmet was hit by a power cut this morning but supplies were later restored.
