A FAULT in a power cable left hundreds of homes and businesses without electricity in Edinburgh’s Old Town early yesterday.

A spokeswoman for ScottishPower said an estimated 600 customers had their power cut between around 9.30am and noon.

She said: “We want to apologise for any inconvenience. Our staff were working in the area and there may have been some short dips in voltage throughout the day, but customers should still have had power.”
