London offices grind to a halt after power cut

Update: 15.55 The power is back on. Around 3,700 homes and businesses were affected.

Many offices in London are still without electricity after a power cut.

The power outage affected SE1, SE4, SE8, SE10 and SE14 – which includes the London Bridge area where many of the capital’s big offices are based.

Some offices have reported their power is back, after UK Power Networks diverted power around a fault.

Engineers are on their way to the scene and it is hoped power will be restored soon.

People based in the area have reported alarms going off, while others have said they are using the opportunity to go watch the Tour de France which goes through the area this afternoon.

We’ll bring you more when we have it.
