Scores of people have been left without power after overnight storms uprooted a tree in Broadbridge Heath.
The tree brought down overhead power cables along Warnham Road as the area was hit by sudden strong winds and heavy rain in the early hours of this morning (July 31).
Power was cut off to more than 70 homes and branches and foliage blocked the road at the junction with Old Guildford Road.
UK Power Networks said: “Our engineers needed to turn off electricity supplies to 71 customers at 6.33am to safely complete tree trimming and repairs.
“We apologise for any inconvenience caused and work is progressing to restore all power supplies as swiftly as possible.”
