Hundreds of homes in a Lancashire village have been left without power.

Engineers from Electricity North West were on their way to Chipping on Wednesday afternoon, after reports that 499 properties were affected.

The power went off at about 12.20pm, affecting areas including Garstang Road and Dunsop Road.

An Electricity North West spokesman said the issue was thought to have been caused by a fault on an overhead power line nearby.

The problem was expected to be resolved by 3pm on Wednesday.
