Over one hundred homes in Barnstaple were without electricity for over nine hours last night due to a power outage.
At least 106 properties in Orchard Road, in the Newport area, went without electricity after a fuse blew just after 5pm.
Western Power Distribution sent engineers to the scene at 5.45pm following several calls from members of the public.
Crews worked at the scene into the early hours to establish the problem and resolve it.
Western Power confirmed the outage was due to an underground cable fault.
The fault was rectified and power was gradually restored to properties from 2.31am.
