HUNDREDS of residents in Oxton were left without electricity this morning following a fault at a substation.
Scottish Power say around 400 people were affected by the shortage, caused by problems at a station in Price's Lane.

Engineers were called to the site at around 8am and the fault was repaired just over an hour later.
A spokesman for the energy firm said: "We apologize to customers for any inconvenience caused by this morning's cuts, but are happy to say the problem has now be sorted out."
