Thousands of Wirral homes hit by power cut
May 27 2008 Kevin Core

THOUSANDS of homes had no electricity after two power stations were unexpectedly disconnected from the National Grid.

Businesses in Wallasey, Birkenhead, Ellesmere Port and even as far as Runcorn were also hit at around 11.30am.

Scottish Power was inundated with calls but they were able to quickly isolate the national power source as the problem.

A spokeswoman for the National Grid, the country’s biggest utility, said: “Two power stations came off the network unexpectedly within two minutes of each other, shortly after 11.30am this morning.

“This caused a drop in frequency.

“The system is designed to protect the majority of UK electricity demand, by automatically disconnecting a small proportion of demand to bring frequency back to safe operating levels.

“All available electricity generation was brought onto the system as soon as possible and we are now working with the electricity distribution network operators to reconnect customers as possible".

Aye the power went off here too, and it was off at Landican crematorium and it went off at Rhea's this morning.

Pain in the ass it was haha I thought it was just me at first.

Driving around locally was murder with no lights on anywhere!!

It amazes me how the national grid, given we are developed country and highly dependent on electric, can put so many lives in risk by doing stupid things like this... 2 power stations were unexpectedly disconnected wtf, they need to sort it out so it dont happen again or jib off and let someone else run it lol!
