HUNDREDS of homes on Wearside were without power tonight.

Nearly 900 homes in the Downhill area of Sunderland were hit by a power cut shortly before 9pm.

Engineers from Northern Powergrid are working on the problem, which is believed to have been caused by a cable fault.

Power is expected to be restored by 11pm.

A spokeswoman for the electricity distributor said 889 homes in the SR5 postcode were without power.
