RESIDENTS in an area of Morpeth have been hit by power cuts.

The loss of electricity happened on more than half-a-dozen occasions from November 3 and it affected properties in Kirkhill, including some in Abbey Meadows, Raynes Close and Simonside Close.

A Northern Powergrid spokeswoman said that after the latest incident on November 14, workers used specialist equipment to find the fault on an underground cable near the substation in the area.

She added that repairs have been carried out and there should be no more power-cut problems.
