The power was thought to be out until midnight in this Swindon blackout however power was restored within hours. However, SSEN apologised because there were instances where some people in some parts of Swindon were left without power for a whole day, unfortunately. Borough and surrounding areas outside of the town such as Shrivenham, Sevenhampton, Wanborough and Bourton were all also left without power.
