Lorry crash disrupts power supply
A lorry has crashed into an electricity pole in Devon, bringing down power cables and disrupting supplies.

The accident happened at the junction of New Street and Stoneman's Lane in Torrington on Monday morning. The driver of the lorry was unhurt.

Police said there had been some disruption to traffic because of the road's closure while fire crews were at the scene.

Western Power Distribution hopes to have supplies back by 1700 GMT.

A spokeswoman said about 100 properties are affected.
