A Horsham leisure centre was forced to close earlier this afternoon following a power cut.

On Facebook the Pavilions in the Park said a local power failure had forced the centre to shut at about 1.30pm.

Other businesses in the area also reported they had been affected.

UK Power Networks said an underground electricity cable faulted on its high voltage network.

The electricity provider said the problem affected homes in businesses in the RH12 1,RH12 3,RH12 5,RH12 4,RH13 8,RH12 2 area.

A statement on the company’s website read: “Our engineers worked hard to fix it and your power should now be back on. We are sorry for any trouble this may have caused you.

“If you are still experiencing problems try resetting your trip switches or contact us and we will be able to help.”

The Pavilions said ‘activities are operating as normal’ and it has now re-opened.
