Storm Callum has triggered major power cuts across Cornwall - with hundreds of homes cut off.

Par was among the worst-hit areas where, at one point, more than 850 properties had lost their supply.

Dozens of others are still out, from Penzance and the Lizard to villages near Bodmin, Liskeard and Launceston.

Western Power says it is working to fix the problems and insists it is braced for the bad weather.

You can check which areas area affected and when supplies are expected to be restored here.
