Hampshire nursing home left without power for three days

Elderly residents in a nursing home were left in freezing conditions for three days after storms across the UK led to a power cut.

Residents at the Grange Nursing Home in Sherborne St John, Hampshire had to be kept bed-bound for warmth until power was restored at 16:30 GMT on Thursday.

Senior sister Joanna Bell said the conditions were "unacceptable".

Southern Electric Power Distribution (SEPD) said its engineers were working "tirelessly" to restore power to homes.
