Around 1,300 properties in Aberdeen were without power this afternoon.

Homes in the AB15 area of the city, which includes the Craigiebuckler area of the city, lost power at around 2pm.

Power has been restored to a number of properties, but around 500 customers remain without power.

Engineers are on site at the moment with plans to restore power by 5pm.

A spokeswoman for SSEN said: “Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) was alerted to a power cut at 2pm today in Aberdeen following a fault on our network. Engineers are investigating the cause of the fault and power is being restored to customers in stages.

“SSEN apologises for any inconvenience caused and thanks its customers for their patience while our engineers work to safely restore their supply.”
