All power has been restored to the 12,000 homes in Cambridge affected by the power cut, after a major explosion at a substation late last night.

Transpower staff restored the power by 2.15pm today after the incident left homes and businesses with no electricity.

Communications manager Rebecca Wilson said Transpower will continue to closely monitor the performance of the repaired equipment.
