More than 200 homes and businesses in Chorley have been hit by a power cut.

A spokesman for Electricity North West said they received the first call at 9.15am today and there were 201 properties without electricity in the PR6 area.

The power cut was due to an underground cable fault and engineers are working to repair it.

Electricity supplies have been restored for 53 properties, with the remaining 148 expected to have power again by 1pm.
