Jersey's links to French power lines have been reconnected.

The island experienced a major power failure on Sunday night after problems with submarine cables to France. Local back-up generators had to be used.

Jersey Electricity said the island's power was now coming from both the local generators and France.

Chris Ambler, from the firm, said on Monday engineers in Jersey and France had been working to find the cause of the power cut.
