Fault causes Shetland-wide power cut
A power failure left most of the isles without electricity for up to 40 minutes last night.
It happened at 9.40pm and affected around 12,000 homes from Sumburgh to Unst as well as Lerwick.
A spokesman for Scottish and Southern Energy said the failure was caused by a fault in the connection between Sullom Voe and the Lerwick power station, but could not give any specifics as to what had caused it.
Engineers were able to repair the fault in stages, with the supply reconnected to all homes by 10.20pm.
