Electricity in Jersey was disrupted for the second time in a week on 28 September because of problems with supplies from France. Although only western parts of the island were hit on this occasion, two days previously about 10,000 homes were cut off across the island, as was Guernsey and parts of Normandy.
The Jersey Electricity Company, which is responsible for distribution within the island, is waiting for a French investigation into the problem, which seems to have been caused by a breakdown in the overhead network in France. The last time that there were serious problems in Jersey was in 2007.
