‘Traffic chaos’ as large-scale power cuts hit London & SE England

Trains ground to a halt and traffic lights were knocked out after a suspected failure of the National Grid left a large area of London and the South East without power, creating transport mayhem during rush hour.

UK Power Networks, which controls the power lines for London and the South East, confirmed the outage shortly after 5pm on Friday, stating that the cut was likely caused by a “failure” of the National Grid’s network. Similar outages were also reported in the Midlands, South West, and Wales, where power lines are run by Western Power Distribution.
