There were reports of widespread loss of power late morning, though in some places the electricity was off for only a short while.

It is understood Orwell High School was one of the places which suffered a power cut.

Concern has been growing in Felixstowe over the number of blackouts and whether the town's electricity supply is adequate, especially with plans to build thousands more homes.

The town council has written to EDF Energy to voice its concern.
