New number for power cut info

If you experience an electricity power cut then here’s what you can do to obtain information or give information:

  • Phone 105. This is a freephone number and will connect you to a local operator who will inform you of reported problems. No matter who supplies your electricity, use this number.
  • Turn off appliances.
  • Leave a light on so you know when power is restored.
  • Check with neighbours. Are they ok? Do they need help? Can they help you? Is a gas cooker available to boil a kettle for a cuppa or a cuppasoup?
  • Careful with those candles please!
  • Have you paid your electricity bill? Course you have, they haven’t cut you off!

That number again is 105 and it’s free.
