Have your say

PARTS of Portsmouth were plunged into darkness after they were hit by a power cut in the evening.

The blackout covered parts of Cosham including Rosebery Avenue, Knowsley Crescent, Knowsley Road, Lonsdale Avenue, Beaconsfield Avenue and Salisbury Road.

Scottish and Southern Energy were informed and an engineer was sent out.

The company estimated the power, which cut out at around 7pm, would be back on later in the evening.
