Power Restored To 100,000 Oxfordshire Homes

Heart's been told electricity has been restored to 100,000 homes in Oxfordshire after a power cut at lunchtime.

The outage was first reported to Southern Electric at 12pm today, with engineers managing to restore power by 12.45pm.

Southern Electric have tweeted to say: "We can confirm that today's power cut in was due to a contractor striking a main underground cable. Sorry for the inconvenience".

They will carry out an investigation to work out why it happened.

One of Heart's transmitters in Oxfordshire was affected by the problem - so if you were trying to listen around midday and could not hear anything this is why!
