AROUND 95 homes are without power this afternoon following a high-voltage fault.

Households in Puddletown and Dorchester had their electricity cut this morning when the fault happened at around 10am.

Although Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE) managed to restore power to the majority of homes within an hour, some still remain in the dark.

A spokesman said engineers are on scene and hope to have the problem fixed later this afternoon.

The company has apologised for any inconvenience caused
