Don't believe if someone tells you that power cuts in the UK are rare. Residents in Little Lullaway, Basildon are feeling powerless after being left without power. They say the issue has been on going for about four years.
They tell "3rd party damage to electrical equipment causing the power cut". People say: "I saw a girl put her card in a cash machines and it was swallowed. Chefs are standing outside restaurants because they can't cook. Everything has just stopped."
Do you wanna be trapped with lions, tigers and gorillas around? No! Then don't hit power poles near zoo. :) A driver was trapped in the vehicle after a crash outside Christchurch's zoo, New Zealand, after hit a power pole.
They believe it was a bird caused a power cut in Abergele. A Scottish Power spokesman said: "Engineers are investigating what happened, but it is believed a bird struck a power cable". “Bird strikes are rare occurrences, but they do happen from time to time.”
