Statement given to me by EDF Energy an hour ago - as it seemed to be under control it didn't seem worth a news item, but if it's still ongoing now...

A fault on a high voltage underground cable interrupted electricity supplies to approximately 1,871 customers in the Bermondsey area at 3.49pm today (26th). EDF Energy Networks engineers restored power to 1,117 customers within three minutes and a further 57 customers at 3.59pm. We are endeavouring to restore supplies to the remaining 697 customers as quickly and safely as possible.
EDF Energy Networks apologises to all of our customers who have experienced any inconvenience as a result of this incident.
Please let us know when the power finally comes back on!
Any other updates/info welcome to help work out the extent of the affected area.
