Power has been restored after more than 1,000 homes in Ipswich were left without electricity this morning. 

Engineers from UK Power Networks were dispatched to fix the issue, which affected a total of 1,103 properties in the town.

Some of the roads affected by the power cut included Foxhall Road, Felixstowe Road, Norwich Road and Portman Road.

A spokesman for UK Power Networks said: "Engineers worked quickly and safely to restore power to 1,103 customers after third-party damage to an underground cable saw supplies interrupted at 10.24am today.

"All properties were back on supply by 11.47am."
