The explosion happened in Bluebell Lane in Huyton, Merseyside, just before 0700 BST. Scottish Power said it managed to restore service just after 0900 BST.

Engineers suspect there was a fault with a transformer.

Traffic lights were out because of the loss of power and police put extra patrols into the area.
