Electricity returns to Crosspool following power cut

Hundreds of Crosspool homes were left without power tonight for one and a half hours.

The electricity supply went down at about 8:15pm. Although it returned promptly in some areas, homes and businesses on the Ranmoor side of Crosspool were left without electricity for around 90 minutes. Cardoness Drive, Barholm Road, Dransfield Road and the lower end of Watt Lane were affected, with reports of the blackout stretching as far as Broomhill.

Electricity supplier Northern Power Grid promptly announced its engineers were looking at the problem and around 9:50pm electricity started to return to Crosspool houses. By 11pm there were no more reports of power problems.
