Electricity North West, the company that owns and maintains the North West’s electricity network, has stepped in to help with the aftermath of the storm and dispatched 50 engineers and linesmen to restore power to those affected.

Greg Fernie, operations director for Electricity North West, said: “We are happy to be able to help UK Power Networks restore power for their customers following the exceptional weather. Thankfully the storm did not affect the North West, although we always monitor conditions closely to ensure that we have engineers available to respond to incidents in our area too. Our engineers have worked tirelessly to restore power in the south and will continue to help for as long as necessary.”
