More than 700 properties in Swansea were without electricity for about an hour-and-a-half after a power cut in the SA1 area of the city.

Western Power Distribution confirmed 732 properties were affected when the power went down at about 15:45 GMT.

Engineers restored power just before 17:15 after fixing the fault.

The SA1 area covers parts of the city centre, waterfront restaurants, hotels, homes and apartments and the bay campus of Swansea University.
