ondoners have been hit by blackouts following a power outage in the capital on Tuesday afternoon.

UK Power Networks confirmed the power outage for areas in east London although their own outage map, showed cuts in multiple areas across London.

It is estimated up to 5,000 households have been affected by the blackout which has impacted 37 postcode areas.

UK Power Networks said: “We’re aware of a power cut affecting the E1, E1W and E14 areas of London.

“Our engineers are working to get the power on as soon as possible.

“For the latest information in your area visit our power cut map.”

UK Power Networks said reported the outage at 12.30pm.

While a nucleus of outages has been reported in the Whitechapel area, there have also been reports of cuts in Belgravia, Westminster and Pimlico.

The blackouts were caused following a fault on a high voltage underground electricity cable, UK Power Network said.

One man told MyLondon: “Yes Limehouse and Wapping affected whole blocks of flats out of power and traffic lights not working. Rotherhithe tunnel being closed.”
