East cowes PowerA permanent fix has been completed on an underground cable fault that caused problems for businesses in East Cowes over Christmas and the New Year.

As the town centre battled flooding, shops also found themselves without power. 117 homes and businesses were affected. An underground cable on Ferry Road developed a fault and a temporary fix was made to ensure supplies. Southern Electric says permanent repairs have now been successfully carried out.
