ABOUT 1,100 homes and businesses in Ryedale have suffered a power cut.

Northern Powergrid said the cut was reported in the YO30, YO32 and YO62 postcode areas at 10.53am.

YO62 covers a large area of northern Ryedale including the Helmsley and Kirkbymoorside areas.

Northern Powergrid said the cut was caused by an unexpected problem with cables or equipment serving the area and it had restored power to some customers and was working to restore it for the rest.

It estimated supplies would be restored to everyone by 12.30pm.
