Black out hits town centre

Have your say

A STRING of town centre shops was plunged into darkness after being hit by a power cut.

The blackout hit a number of stores on St Sepulchre Gate after the electricity supply was lost on Thursday afternoon.

A number of shops located along the Frenchgate Centre frontage were forced to close their doors until power was restored about an hour later.

Affected stores included Bright House, The Works and Internacionale.
