TITCHFIELD Primary School has been closed this morning after a power cut.

The school is currently shut due to it having no power or heating but is due to open at 10am while SSE resolves the problem.

The issue, which involves a fault on a transformer, has also affected 24 customers on the High Street. 

Engineers from SSE have been on site attempting to sort the problem out from 8am.
