In a statement on their website, a spokesperson for Western Power Distribution said "Storm Eunice is now making her presence felt in our South West and South Wales regions, with gusts of 87mph recorded at Mumbles Head and 70mph in Plymouth.

"Our contact centres are coping well, with calls being answered within four seconds. The main issues our field teams are facing are falling trees and flying debris, which are bringing down overhead lines. Fallen trees also create difficulties in getting to faults.

"It’s one of the reasons why our storm preparations include putting tree trimming contractors on standby – when a tree falls on a line we have to clear the tree before we can assess the damage. Unfortunately, this can make it difficult to give accurate times of restoration but a fallen tree can weigh several tons and take time to clear.

Operations Director Graham Halladay said: “I’d like to thank customers for their understanding as Storm Eunice moves through. I’d like to reassure everyone that our teams are working to restore supplies as quickly as they safely can.

“If anyone sees a fallen power line, please call 105. Our staff have the training and equipment to deal with it. Fallen power lines can still be live, which means they are capable of delivering a fatal shock.”
