Fault to blame for power cut

ALMOST 1600 customers at Walla, Jindera and Gerogery lost power last night following an electrical fault.

Essential Energy cut supply to homes about 3.30pm after a fault was detected on the network. Southern region manager Steven Ilitch said crews from Albury worked to make the area safe and restore power. The company was able to backfeed supply to most customers but many were still without electricity last night. — blair thomson
