Downhill pensioner has electricity after 29 years
A County Londonderry pensioner who has spent 29 Christmases without electricity is hoping he will not have to spend this year's holiday by candlelight.
On Friday, 78-year-old John McCarter said men were outside his home working on a temporary connection.
Mr McCarter successfully campaigned to have electricity installed along his road three years ago.
However, at the time he was not hooked up to the grid like his neighbours.
