Not sure who got the sudden power cut but there is a fire at the sub station at road end (so my sources tell me)

I have sent MrsPK down with the camera

I was in the dark end of the loft looking for my Christmas tableware when all the light went out, fortunately only for a minute or so.

It popped on and off here in helmshore as well. My phone switched off and on, but not had a look if anything else is flashing.
Hope nobody was hurt.

My mum lives on Holmeswood Park, they've been evacuated from their houses on there. They said Bury Road is closed too.
