Village Power Cuts

Just spoken to SSE about the spate of electricity outages in North Waltham over the last few weeks ( the ones I recorded are: 17/9/16; 19/9/16 and 23/9/16). The time and effort needed to re-set timers and clocks is really getting beyond a joke. It appears that the outages are caused by birds or squirrels etc. setting off the safety switches on the high voltage overhead lines. I suggested that perhaps SSE need to check to see why this is happening so much at present...I have made a complaint. If you have been inconvenienced by the power outages you can call SEE on 0800 072 7282 and do the same.      See full story...
