Shops in York's Shambles lose a day's trading because of power cut
BUSINESSES in the historic heart of York have suffered an all-day power cut today on one of their busiest days of the year.
Northern Powergrid said an underground cable fault in Shambles affected electricity supplies to 46 properties in the street, and also nearby streets including Silver Street and Little Shambles.
A spokesman said the fault was reported at 8.40 am and supplies were restored to all but one property by 5.24 pm.
Cox's Leather Shop in Shambles tweeted: "Half of Shambles had no power today so closed on one of our busiest days of the year. Npower will not compensate."
