A large power cut which left hundreds of people in west Norfolk without power and a radio station off-air has been fixed.
The incident at Great Massingham, between King's Lynn and Fakenham, affected eight postcode areas.
Homes were affected between Wissington, near Downham Market, up to Titchwell and the Burnhams on the north Norfolk coast.
The power outage left many businesses and residents without electricity, including KLFM.
KLFM was off FM transmission due to the power outage but could still be listened to online or via a smart speaker.
The problem was fixed by UK Power Networks between 5pm and 6pm on Tuesday, November 19, although a few properties still remain without power.
A spokesperson for UK Power Networks said: "We were investigating a high voltage overhead electricity line fault which caused a power cut in the local area."
The radio station's back up generator kicked back into action at around 3pm.
