Yeah, our daughter woke us up at around 2am - absolutely pitch black with the odd house alarm going off.

We did notice that there seemed to be torch lights around the flats in the Sandbrook area - wasn't sure if it may have been police or just somebody out at that time of the morning with a torch??

Power soon restored though thank god - my reptiles were getting cold, ha ha.

Still don't know why it happened though

I went out with a torch to check on the neighbours houses etc, it was out for some time - there is a rumour, there was a car crashed into an electrical box in wallasey village - not sure if this is true or not though! the whole of Leasowe was in darkness, including Leasowe road! which was quite a sight!

All the lights were out at J1 at about 3am'ish... however, they were working fine between J1 and J2, and on the connecting roads, from about Tesco onwards, and from about Max Spielman onwards. Not sure if my flat was affected, but it didnt seem a massive cut, however loads of people said they were affected for about an hour.

My mum said her alarm clock was flashing, she is in Moreton, and my auntie said she was awake when it happened, and she is on Reeds Lane in Leasowe, so it must have been bigger than it appeared.

All the street lighting seemed to be working in the local area's apart from J1 however.

I did'nt notice myself cos I wasnt in, but ill ask the goldfish if their filter went off later on haha! The TopUp TV was not downloading anything until 5am onwards but they all worked, so it must have been between 2am and 5am, my auntie said it was about an hour and street lights in Leasowe were out and there was a bang when they came back on lol... oh and the Spar alarm was going off.

I live in Murrayfield Drive and the lights dmmed for a moment and then all the electric went off around 1.38am including the street lamps. At about 3am I was looking down the road and noticed the lights coming on in the houses as if in turn, the street lamps dimmed and then mine came back on. I heard that a power line went down on the motorway.

Im in Wallasey Village, just off leasowe road, and we experienced the power cut aswell. Went out in the street with a torch to see what was going on and loads of people were out talking, could hear the party people from the rugby club on cross lane cheering. we lost power around 1:20am and when I woke up this morning at 7am, power was back and the alarm clock was showing 4:30am, so I calculate the power came back on around 2:30am and was off for just over an hour.
