MORE than 800 homes were left without power for 10 hours.

EDF customers had electricity cut at 10.30am on Wednesday, October 14, in the Dover Road area of Gravesend after damage to an underground cable.

Supply was restored to 88 households within an hour, but the remaining 830 had to wait until 9pm for power to resume.

A company spokesman said: "We are committed to providing a reliable supply of electricity and, in a bid to reduce the number of power interruptions caused by contractors damaging underground cables, actively encourage any firm undertaking work to contact us in advance for advice and free maps to help them avoid our cables.

"This is vital for their own safety as well as for the security of electricity supplies.
