Cumbria’s planned power cuts for Carlisle, Sedbergh and Keswick

Hundreds of properties in Cumbria will have power outages in the next week.

Electricity North West has organised nine power cuts between Monday (October 19) and Saturday (October 24), with work hopefully seeing improved reliability in the county.

Overall, 403 homes and businesses will be affected across the week.

Electricity North West says: “We invest millions every year into maintaining the local network.

“This helps us to ensure all areas of the North West region have a safe and secure supply of electricity for the future.

“Sometimes, this requires us to temporarily interrupt your supply so our engineers can work safely.

“We will always notify you in advance before we plan to interrupt your supply, unless it is an emergency situation we will not notify you.”
