Portsmouth roads plunged into darkness for third night in a row
PARTS of Portsmouth have been plunged into darkness for the third night running after a power cut.
Besieged residents living in the PO4 postcode area have been left without power after yet another blackout took place around 6.30pm this evening.
People living in Westfield RoadÂ and Eastfield Road, as well as Eastney Road, have been told their power may not be back on until midnight.
Engineers from Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) are currently attempting toÂ resolveÂ the issue.
The fiasco comes after nearly 50,000 people were affected by a huge blackout across the city on Monday.
Last night also saw another power cutÂ as peopleÂ again living in theÂ PO4 postcode were thrown into darkness.
The power giant has been forced to apologiseÂ for the last two nights.
A spokesperson for SSEN said tonight: '˜We've had reports of some isolated incidents of no power '“Â it is notÂ widespread. Our engineers are on site to investigate whether it is a power cut or just low voltage. I would hope the issues will be resolved this evening.'Â
