Power cuts

You can call 105 to report or get information about power cuts in your local area. You can also call 105 if you spot damage to electricity power lines and substations that could put you, or someone else, in danger. If there’s a serious immediate risk, you should call the emergency services too.

You should call your electricity supplier for any other issues eg if you are having metering or boiler problems.

Call 101 for all non-emergencies

After dialling 101, you will be given four options:
