Scottish and Southern Energy said power has now been restored to all but one property in Wiltshire following storms on Friday night.

At one stage more than 10,000 homes in the county were without electricity.

A spokesman said the company drafted in 1,000 staff over the weekend and provided hot meals for those affected.

He said conditions were "challenging" for engineers, and flooding and fallen trees had hampered efforts to carry out the repairs.
