Power restored after massive London power outage

Thousands of Londoners were left in the dark Wednesday morning thanks to a widespread power outage.

Large chunks of central and west London were impacted with London Hydro’s Nancy Hutton confirming roughly 25,000 customers were offline at the peak of the outage that started shortly after 8 a.m.

Power was restored to most customers a little more than an hour later.

As to what caused the outage, Hutton says the answer remains unclear.

“We’ll be investigating the outage and trying to determine the cause of it,” said Nancy.

“It’s difficult to say… but at this time, we’re not expecting any further outages.”
