Major power failure affects homes and transport

London, Aug. 9 (Petra)-- Hundreds of thousands of people have been affected by a major power cut across large areas of the UK, affecting homes and transport networks.

National Grid said it was caused by issues with two power generators but the problem was now resolved.

Blackouts were reported across the South East, Midlands, South West, North East and Wales.

Trains were delayed and cancelled across England and Wales, and traffic lights in London stopped working.
