Derry power cuts: Over 3,000 homes left without electricity

Over 3,000 homes were left without power in Londonderry on Monday night.

Around 3,400 properties are said to be without power, according to SDLP MLA for Foyle, Mark H Durkan.

It's understood homes were affected in the Galliagh, Shantallow, Culmore and areas.

Engineers from NIE are currently attempting to deal with the outage.

It's not yet clear how long repairs could take.

Mark H Durkan appealed for those affected to check on elderly or vulnerable neighbours.

"It seems some people are already checking on their neighbours which is good," he said.

"We hope the problem is addressed as soon as possible."
