Nationwide power cut: How UK travel was affected

A large power cut has caused "apocalyptic" rush-hour scenes across England and Wales, with traffic lights down and trains coming to a standstill.

Nearly a million customers faced blackouts late on Friday afternoon after what the National Grid Electricity System Operator said were issues with two generators, which were now resolved.

Around 300,000 UK Power Networks customers were affected in London and the South East, a spokeswoman said and Western Power Distribution said around 500,000 people were affected in the Midlands, South West and Wales, with power restored to them all shortly after 6pm.
