Ronnie Barbour, currently presenting the morning show on BBC Essex, visited UK Power Networks training centre in Risby, Suffolk, to learn a bit more about the training our engineers go through and how we fix faults on the network.

I’m really proud to let you know about a new telephone number that you can call 24 hours a day if you ever have a power cut. Here at UK Power Networks we’ve been working with other electricity companies across the UK to make sure anyone across England, Scotland or Wales can call it to get through to the right company during a power cut.

Over the last few months we’ve been busy contacting trade associations and accreditation bodies to help raise awareness of the risks when working near electricity. We especially want people to look out for electricity cables that are buried underground and in the walls of buildings.

I started with the company in the same year England won the World Cup, as an apprentice electrical fitter, aged just 16. Back in my apprentice days, they said that if you stayed for the first five years, then you would stay for the rest. Well, that certainly turned out to be true in my case!
