Large parts of Welwyn Garden City town centre have been plunged into darkness following a power cut this afternoon.
It has affected the whole of The Howard Centre, as well as some local shops and sets of traffic lights.
A message on UK Power Networks’ website said: “There is currently a power cut in this area.
“Our engineers are working hard to fix it as quickly as possible.
“We are sorry for any trouble this may have caused you.”
It says the reason for the power cut is an “underground electricity cable has faulted on our high voltage network, causing an area wide power cut”.
There is currently restricted access to The Howard Centre due to the power cut.
