There is an unplanned power cut in the SY21 postcode area of Welshpool affecting properties in Haven Court, Severn Road and the surrounding area.

The power cut started at around 11.15am today (Wednesday, December 11).

SP Energy Networks said it will be necessary for its engineers to carry out an "emergency shutdown" at 3pm in order to allow for an unstable tree that poses a threat to the substation to be removed.

"This may affect the supply to your property. We will work to get you rower back on as quickly and as safely as possible. We apologise for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience," a spokesperson said.

It is expected for the power to be restored by 8pm.
