Hatfield residents are experiencing power cuts as Storm Doris wreaks havoc.

Residents of Sovereign Place, Mount Pleasant Lane and surrounding areas say they have lost power.

A spokesman for UK Power Networks said: “Power supplies have been affected by the severe weather across parts of the East of England and South East electricity network and we have engineers working to restore supplies as quickly as possible.

“We are also remotely restoring many of the electricity supplies.

“Our electricity networks are built to be reliable but extreme weather can sometimes damage overhead lines.

“We monitor the weather very closely and have robust plans in place to respond to the high winds, including extra engineers and call takers on duty.

“We urge anyone who sees an overhead line down to call our emergency power cut helpline on 0800 3163 105.”
