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.

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.

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.

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.

When will we get power back to all customers?

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.
