Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks have reported just one fault outstanding after the impact of Storm Dennis last night, with 17 properties in the Ness district off power this morning (Monday 17 February).

The homes in North Dell have been without power since 8am after wires came down in the strong winds. Engineers are on site and repairs under way, with power expected to be restored by 12 noon.

An SSEN spokesman said that the network had been ‘remarkably resilient’ during successive waves of wild weather since January and thanked any customers who may have been affected by the short outages for their patience.
