In LS16, 120 homes have been affected, where the power is not expected to be back on until 3pm.

Each area has been hit by a similar problem.

"The power cut affecting your property has been caused by an unexpected problem with the cables or equipment that serve your area," Northern Powergrid said.

"Our team are working hard to restore your power as quickly as possible."
