A POWER cut plunged 138 homes in Burnley into darkness this morning.

An underground cable fault in Brush Street meant homes in the Accrington Road area were without power for two-and-a-half hours from 8 a.m.

A spokesman for Electricity North West said: “We apologise for any inconvenience caused. Our engineers were out straight on site and the problem was resolved as quickly as possible.”
