Nearly 300 homes are without power in Ipswich this morning.

According to UK Power Networks, 293 customers are without power in southern parts of the town and surrounding villages.

A statement on the company's website reads: "We're investigating a high voltage overhead electricity line fault which has caused a power cut in the local area.

"We're sorry for any disruption this may be causing you."

Power is expected to be restored between 10.30am and 11.30am.

This comes as strong winds batter the county, with the Met Office issuing a yellow weather warning.
