These are the areas still affected by the power cut.

But despite efforts by Northern Powergrid teams, power isn’t expected to be restored to the 150 premises until around 8pm.

The power cut has been caused by an unexpected problem with the electricity cable that serves the area of TS26.

Now, over 100 other properties in the Hartlepool area have been affected by the unexpected power issue.
