About 100 homes were left without power after vandals attacked an electricity sub-station in County Armagh on Wednesday morning.

A number of cables were cut and fuses removed from the sub-station at Mandeville Drive in Tandragee.

NIE said those responsible risked their lives by breaking into a place full of live cables. Power was restored to affected homes within two hours.

Police have appealed for anyone with information to contact them.
