A power cut in East Kilbride is affecting hundreds of homes and businesses, including the town's main shopping complex.

It is understood there has been a fault at an electricity sub station.

A spokeswoman at the 260-unit East Kilbride Shopping Centre said she hoped full power would be restored by 15:30.

Many shops have been forced to close and the electronic barriers in the centre's car parks are being operated manually.

Earlier, large parts of Dumfries were affected by a power cut. Scottish Power said it was dealing with the faults.
