The day the lights went out

There was a power cut on Tuesday that effected Ham Parade and the surrounding area for a few hours. The traffic lights at the main Richmond Road / Tudor Drive / Dukes Avenue junction were out but the traffic seemed to flow OK, though it probably helped that it was during the day and not at one of the peak times. The shops that could operate without electricity did so and managed their tills using pen and paper.
