Residents of a Lightcliffe street have been hit by a third power cut in six days.

The power on Syke Lane went off at around 1pm today (Tuesday) and was restored at around 2.50pm.

The street has been blighted by cuts over the past week, the first on Thursday between 1pm and 4.15pm and the second on Friday between 7.30pm and 10.30pm.

A spokesperson from Northern Powergrid said that 57 customers have been affected by the cuts and were put on generators on Friday while work was carried out.

Generators were removed today at around 1pm in order to restore the permanent supply.

But Northern Powergrid said that further work is required to ensure the fault is fixed and customers will be notified by post when this will be undertaken.
