894 people were initially affected by the outage.

Engineers from UK Power Networks spent the morning repairing the fault and restoring the power supply to customers.

The repair work was completed and power supplies were back up and running at 2.40pm.

    Not only have we been affected in Ramsgate this morning, also this evening. We lost power at about 5pm, and did not have anything for another two to three hours. Our whole family street was left in darkness. After circulating the surrounding streets, it seemed that we were the only ones without power. It would be nice to know if the substation was again the issue, or if any other areas were affected.
