Have your say

MORE than 1,000 homes were without electricity after damage caused by high winds.

Southern Electric was working round the clock, between late Saturday night and early Sunday morning, after a powercut left 1,072 houses in Petersfield without power.

Extra engineers and support staff were distributed to the affected areas to repair damages and get the power back on.
