BREAKING NEWS: Thousands hit by huge Doncaster power cut


Thousands of people across Doncaster have been left in the dark tonight after a huge power cut.

Hundreds of homes across the town were plunged into darkness at around 7.10pm after electricity supplies failed.

The cut was centred on the Wheatley area with homes in Clay Lane, Wheatley Hills, Edenthorpe, Barnby Dun and Kirk Sandall all affected.

However, residents across Doncaster also complained of being briefly affected with power supplies and lights dimming in areas as far afield as Scawsby, Marr, Intake, Woodlands and Hatfield.

Power supplier Northern Powergrid tweeted that they were aware of the problems in the DN2 postcode area and said: “We know about the power in DN2 area, engineers are on the way” and later added: “We have restored the power in #Doncaster area. Thank you for your patience and sorry for the inconvenice caused.”
