A POWER cut has affected homes and businesses in Fareham.

JoJo Gelato in West Street, suffered a power cut of around one hour and 30 minutes.

Owner JoJo Cheung said: ‘We had about an hour’s power cut.

‘The ice cream was affected a little bit.’

She added her sister business L J Chinese, also in West Street, had to close as the company could not operate.

‘We’ve had a couple of deliveries and takeaways we’ve had to cancel.’

A spokeswoman for SSE said around 30 properties, including 12 households, were affected.

Low voltage has caused the outage and power should be restored to everyone by 11pm, she added.
