A SUDDEN power cut has affected homes across parts of East Kilbride and Eaglesham.

Residents in some areas with G75 and G76 postcodes were baffled on Monday afternoon by the sudden loss of electricity.

SP Energy Networks texted customers to inform them and apologised for any "inconvenience."

“There is a power cut affecting the G75 and G76 postcode area of Glasgow,” said the message.

“We had no advance warning of this and first became aware of it at 2.34pm. Our engineers have arrived on site to find and fix the fault as quickly and safely as possible."

The company later attributed the power cut to "debris" on a power line.

A spokesperson for SP Energy Networks said: "Due to debris on a rural overhead line, 26 houses experienced a temporary loss of supply.

"Our engineers attended quickly to safely remove the debris and restore the power. We apologise for any inconvenience.”
