NIE restores power to 1,500 west Belfast homes

Around 1,500 homes in west Belfast have had their power restored by Northern Ireland Electricity.

The outage affected around 1,500 properties around the Springfield Road and Fernhill Grove areas of the city on Thursday morning.

Engineers from NIE have been on the site since around 11.20am.

As of 2pm around 190 homes were still without power but NIE hoped to have them restored shortly.

At around 2.40pm all power had been restored.

A spokeswoman from NIE said the company was investigating the fault which they believe to be an underground cable.
