Edinburgh was plunged into darkness last night after the city suffered a huge power cut on Sunday night.
Around 88,000 SP Energy Networks customers across Edinburgh, Lothian and Border areas were plunged into “blackout” amid a fault on the transmission network.
Most customers had power restored within 20 minutes and the rest had their power back on within 25 minutes.
