Electricity cut off at 1,000 homes in Bromham

About 1,000 homes in a Wiltshire village have been without electricity since 11:30 BST on Monday.

Properties in the village of Bromham, near Devizes, have been affected.

A spokeswoman for SSE - formerly Scottish and Southern Energy - said the power outage had been caused by an overhead line being brought down.

Engineers are working on the problem and are hoping to restore power by 18:00 BST.
