Storm Diana triggers massive power cuts in Cornwall

Published by the Pirate FM News Team at 7:34am 29th November 2018. (Updated at 9:10am 29th November 2018)

Storm Diana has triggered major power cuts across Cornwall and at one point, almost 3,000 were cut off.

Marazion was among the worst-hit areas, where more than 1,000 properties lost supply on Thursday morning.

Hundreds more were left cut off near Pentewan, Landrake and St Minver in north Cornwall.

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