EDF Energy Networks staff are continuing their work to restore power supplies across the East of England in difficult conditions.

Although the weather is currently poor in the East of England there are no significant problems in this area at the moment.

In the South East, coastal strip of Sussex, between Polegate and Brighton, central Sussex and the Warnham area, are still the worst affected areas. Less than 2000 customers across Kent and Sussex are currently without power but this picture is changing constantly as new faults occur.

Most of the faults are localised, each affecting small numbers of customers, and more than half are affecting single premises.

Travel within the South East is still difficult and much of the work EDF are dealing with involves lengthy repairs.

Anyone with power supply problems in the South East can call EDF's free power cut helpline on 0800 783 8866 to hear a message with the latest information for their area or to speak to a customer adviser.

If you are without power, EDF recommend you:

* Keep a torch handy and try not to use candles unless they are fixed in some way

* Keep warm by staying in one room, or even in bed

* Please keep an eye on any elderly or ill people who live nearby. If you have a gas cooker, try to make sure they have hot food or drink, even if it's just a flask of hot water

* Switch off all electrical equipment, except one light which will let you know when the power comes back on

* If you have a battery-operated radio, please listen to your local radio station for the latest information
