Northern Ireland Electricity (NIE) has said power has been restored to all customers in Dundonald.

About 3,000 properties were affected after the electricity went off at 08:20 GMT on Thursday.

A spokesman for Northern Ireland Electricity said it had been caused by an underground cable fault.

The Ulster Hospital in Dundonald said power had been affected but back-up generators had automatically kicked into operation.

There has been no disruption to patients or procedures at the hospital.
