A power outage in parts of Haddenham began at approximately 3:30pm on Monday 23rd May.
Below are the running commentaries received from UK Power Networks:

"Our engineers are still working on site and waiting for the generators to arrive. We're very sorry for the length of time your power has been off and understand not knowing a time of restoration can be frustrating.

UPDATE at 1:51am Tues 24 May:
All the village should now have power again, as of 01:50 hrs Tuesday.
Final message from UK Power Networks:
"Update at 01:51 — We can now confirm that all power in the area should be back on. The issue was caused by an overhead fault in the Haddenham Bucks area. Our engineers have now connected a temporary generator to provide power whilst further repairs are carried out. If your power isn't on or there's anything you'd like to talk to us about, call us on 08003163105 which is free from landlines and mobiles."
The electricity failure lasted over 10 hours for some parts of the village.
Let us hope the switchover from temporary generator back to grid supply is seamless, when the time comes!
