A neighbourhood in Sheffield has had its second power cut in six days.

Houses near the Endcliffe Park and Hunters Bar section of Ecclesall Road were affected this morning as well as on Sunday night.

UPDATE: Thousands of customers affected as extent of Sheffield black out is revealed
Unconfirmed reports have said the cut could be spread over a much wider area - from the city centre out to Broomhill.

So far people in postcodes s11 and s10 have reported today's black out to Northern Powergrid.

On Twitter this morning, Steve McCarthy said: "Looks like a big power cut across Sheffield. There's a lot of thumb twiddling going on here at work."

Northern Powergrid said: "We’re working hard to get the power back on. Thanks for your patience."
