Felixstowe: Power cut in town centre leaves businesses unable to trade

SEVERAL businesses in Hamilton Road were forced to close today after a power cut left some shops in the town centre without electricity.

The cut happened at 7.43am today, leaving five shops without power. A further three shops lost power at 10am.

The shops affected by the incident included Russell Smith, New Look and the Sandwich Shop.

A spokesman for UK Power Networks said: “UK Power Networks engineers are working as quickly as safely possible to restore power supplies to eight customers in Hamilton Road, Felixstowe following a fault on a low voltage underground cable.

“We appreciate how difficult it is to be without electricity and apologise to all those affected.”
