Every power cut planned in for Cumbria this week with hundreds to be affected

More than 300 homes and businesses will be hit by planned power cuts over the next few days.

Work is being carried out to maintain and improve electricity supplies across Cumbria this week.

In total, 365 customers will be affected including in South Lakeland, Carlisle and Maryport.

“We invest millions every year into maintaining the local network,” Electricity North West said.

“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.”
