Scottish Power has said: "There is a power cut affecting the LL11, LL12 and LL13 postcode areas of Llay and Wrexham.

"We had no advance warning of this and first became aware of it at 9.55 am.

"Our engineers have arrived on site to find and fix the fault as quickly and as safely as possible. Restoration is taking longer than expected because of faulty equipment on the overhead line network and the complexity of the repairs needed , our team are now working to get your electricity supply back on as quickly and as safely as possible by 2pm. We apologise for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience."
