More than 750 homes in Cornwall have woken up without power.

More than 500 were off in Truro on Tuesday morning.

Western Power says it is also working to fix problems in Hayle, St Buryan, Mevagissey and Illogan.

Bosses say all should be sorted out by lunchtime with many much sooner.

It is after the remnants of Hurricane Gonzalo ripped across the Duchy, with winds of up to 50mph.
