Homes in Kenninghall were left without power as Storm Katie wreaked havoc across the country.

A tree fell on an overhead power line in the south Norfolk village on Sunday, leaving 17 properties without electricity.

We understand how difficult it is to be without power and apologise for any inconvenience caused

It happened in Fersfield Road, just before 1.30pm.

A spokesperson for UK Power Networks told the Diss Express: “UK Power Networks engineers worked as quickly and as safely as possible to restore power to 17 properties after a tree fell on an overhead line in Fersfield Road, Kenninghall, just before 1.30pm on Sunday.

“Fourteen properties had their electricity supplies restored at 4pm and the remaining three were back on supply at 8.44pm when the overhead line was repaired.

“We understand how difficult it is to be without power and apologise for any inconvenience caused.”

A fire crew from Diss had also been at the scene, from 2pm to 3.30pm, before leaving the incident in the hands of UK Power Networks.
