AN area of Tring is without power while repairs to an underground cable are carried out.

Engineers have switched off the electricity in the Brook Street area, which affects the Shell-owned fuel station.

UK Power Networks spokesman Tracey Sparling said: “This work was planned in advance and required the power supply to be switched off temporarily so that our engineers could work on the cables in safety.

“On Tuesday, we notified the 57 customers whose power supplies would be affected from 9am to 4pm so that they could make alternative arrangements if necessary.

“We would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused and aim to restore power by 4pm, or sooner if at all possible.”
