POWER cuts are affecting two areas of Flintshire. 

Scottish Power says there is a power outage in Sychdyn and Buckley. 

The power cut in Buckley is affecting properties on St Mellors Road, Aberllanerch Drive, and surrounding streets.

The company says repairs are taking longer than expected because of a fault on the underground cable network and the extent of the repair, with Scottish Power engineers hoping to restore power by 5pm today.

The power cut in Sychdyn is affecting properties in New Brighton Road, Maes Gwalia, and the surrounding area.

Scottish Power says it expects power to be restored by 2.30 pm.
