Message from UK Power Networks

You may have seen that bad weather is on the way and we are likely to see high winds in parts of the East of England tomorrow (Thursday 23rd February).

Our electricity network is built to be resilient but extreme weather can damage overhead power lines resulting in some customers losing their electricity supply.  Where this happens we work to restore power as quickly and safely as possible, and we have organised for additional staff in our contact centre and more engineers on the ground to be available to help customers whose electricity supply might be affected by the predicted weather.

You will be able to find regular updates on our website and social media @ukpowernetworks throughout this period.

Anyone experiencing a power cut should:

  • Call 105 to report power cuts and damage to the electricity network
  • Visit for the latest update
  • Visit and type in their postcode to view our live power cut map
  • Tweet @ukpowernetworks to report a power cut or to receive updates

UK Power Networks has a Priority Service Register for customers who may be more vulnerable and require extra assistance in a power cut.  You can find out more information on our website:

We advise people to stay clear of power lines and report damaged power lines immediately by calling 105 - free to call from a landline or a mobile phone.  If they see electricty lines that are down or causing significant risk to the public they should call 999.

Preparing for a power cut

Below is some additional advice on how you can prepare for a power cut:

  • Keep our freephone number handy
  • See the website for some useful videos offering you advice during a power cut
  • Keep spare batteries for radios and torches - local radio stations often broadcast helpful information
  • Keep an old-fashioned corded phone which you can plug in, as cordless phones won't work in the event of a power cut
  • Take care if using candles, tea-lights and other naked flames
  • Keep fridges and freezers closed
  • Remember the streetlights may also be off so take care if you go out
  • Look out for elderly neighbours and other vulnerable people; please consider taking them round a flask of hot water or hot food.
