POWER CUT: More than 2,500 homes without electricity in Maidstone

Friday 16th July 2021

MORE than 2,500 homes across Maidstone have been affected by a massive power cut.

The blackout was caused by an underground cable fault, say UK Power Networks.

Power has been restored to most homes but nearly 200 are still without electricity. It is feared the cable may not be fully repaired until 6.30pm. 

Homes in Eccles, Allington, Shepway, Penenden Heath, Downswood, Tovil, and the town centre have been most affected.
