Temporary generators are being brought in after a power cut in West Norfolk this morning (6th Jan). 

It's believed power has been restored to the majority of properties but some may still be without. 

UK Power Networks first became aware of this issue at around 3am.

Earlier around 300 properties were without power. 

UK Power Networks posted the following update at 7:38am: 

"Our engineers have advised that there's a lot of work required on site, so we have decided to use temporary generators to provide power.

To allow time for us to get the generators out to your area and connect them, we're now estimating we'll have power back on between 11:30 and 12:30.

We're sorry to change the timeframe and will let you know when they arrive."
