More than 300 homes in Hatfield were left without electricity yesterday evening.

Thanks to a fault in an underground cable, 303 homes lost their power supply at about 5.45pm for at least half an hour.

The power cut affected the AL9 and AL10 postcodes, and in particular the Hatfield Garden Village area.
