Nearly 200 homes and businesses across South Yorkshire have been hit by a power cut this morning.

The lights went out on about 100 properties in the Newton area of Doncaster last night following a problem with overhead power cables.

The power also went out on 40 properties in the Brincliffe area of Sheffield and about 50 in Ecclesfield at 6am this morning.

A spokesperson for the Northern Powergrid said: "Our team are working hard to restore your power as quickly as possible."
