Almost 1,000 homes in a north-east town were left without power today.
SSE engineers were called out to respond to the outage which affected properties in and around the Market Street and Park Terrace areas of Ellon.
Power went off at just after 9am and was restored about 40 minutes later.
Engineers rerouted the affected customers’ supplies to different parts of the network.
A fault-finding investigation is under way to establish the cause of the power cut.
We are en-route and expect to have the power back on by 12:00 but in most cases, we can restore the power sooner.
