POWER was restored to the homes of around 300 residents who were left in the dark for almost four hours.

Homeowners in Teddington Road and Prince Albert Road, Southsea, and roads nearby had their electricity cut off at about 5.30pm following a power cut.

It is unknown what caused the fault but Southern Electric engineers have been in the area fixing the problem by rerouting electricity supplies from other parts of the company’s network.

Everyone’s power was restored by 9.45pm.

As previously reported, residents were yesterday left without electricity for more than an hour after a fuse blew at a substation in Prince Albert Road.
