Adrian Marden from Present Surprise said: “We’ve had four power cuts recently which meant we had to close.

“I always seems to happen around lunchtime which is annoying as it’s our busiest time.”

Scottish and Southern Electricity engineers visited shops today and in a letter apologised, saying it hopes to have solved the fault.
