Since Friday, we’ve seen exceptionally high winds and rain across all of the areas we cover (East of England, South East and London). This caused damaged to our overhead lines as they were brought down by trees, branches and other wind-borne debris

When the storm struck last night, power was initially cut to about 300,000 customers but engineers restored it to most within two or three minutes. Our engineers then worked really hard in terrible weather conditions.

I would like to reiterate that I am very sorry to everyone who was without power over the Christmas period following the storm that hit Britain, and thank you for your patience and understanding.

The storm on Monday was the biggest we’ve coped with since 2002. Its caused lots of damage to our overhead power lines and affected more than 650,000 of our customers.

Our engineers are still working really hard to fix the damage caused in Monday’s storm. I want to share with you some photos of the damage they've seen and have since repaired.

I’m used to dealing with storms and fallen trees, I’ve worked here for 29 years and have seen my fair share. But when I got to Walcott I’d never seen anything like it. It had just been hit by the biggest tidal surge in 60 years and nothing could prepare me for the scene of devastation.

England had its windiest December since 1969. I’ve worked as a field engineer for 16 years and have experienced bad weather and flooding. But when I got to Yalding, a village in Kent, I’d never seen anything like it.

Power cuts are rare but, in the digital age, I think they are more disruptive to our daily lives than ever before. I’d find it really irritating if I couldn’t charge my mobile phone, boil the kettle or use the internet but for some of our most vulnerable customers a blackout is very worrying or may even threaten their heath.
