HOMES were plunged into darkness last night after a power cut across Portchester and Fareham.

Southern Electric said the outage, which began at around 9pm, was being looked in to.

Engineers had restored the supply to the majority of homes in the two areas by 10.30pm.

The energy firm said the outage was due to a fault in the power supply.
