Over 1,000 customers are without power this afternoon (Tuesday 11 Feb) after gusty winds brought down overhead electricity lines in Point. 
 
Lines have fallen beside Bayble, close to Sgoil An Rubha and the Point Free Church, cutting the supply to 1,115 customers between Aignish and Tiumpan Head.
 
A spokesman for Scottish and Southern Electricity Network (SSEN) said the repair would be relatively straightforward but that the necessary equipment needed to be moved to the site before the repair could commence.
 
Six engineers are on site and it is hoped that power will be restored to all customers by 5pm.
