“POCKETS” of properties throughout Dunbar, East Linton and North Berwick were left without power on Saturday evening.

ScottishPower received 35 calls from residents after power went off in the area at about 6.35pm.

A spokeswoman for the utility giants apologised for any inconvenience and said it was thought that the issue came from a local sub-station.

The issue affected people in the EH39, EH40 and EH41 areas and power was fully restored by 7.40pm.
