Buildings left without power after outage in Horsham town centre


Restaurants were among ten buildings in Horsham town centre to be left without power for two hours today (Friday February 6).

Power has now been restored, a spokesperson for UK Power Networks said, after ten buildings in East Street were affected by the outage.

Strada and Wagamama were both forced to close due to the loss of power.

A note on the window of Strada read: “Restaurant closed due to no power. Sorry for any inconvenience.”

The UK Power Networks spokesperson said: “UK Power Networks engineers have restored electricity supplies to ten customers affected by a power cut in East Street, Horsham.

“A fault on the underground distribution network meant the customers lost power at 11.42am today (February 6). Our engineers worked as quickly as was safely possible and had power restored at 1.49pm.

“We appreciate how difficult it can be to lose power and would like to apologise for the inconvenience caused by this incident.”
