Work is continuing to restore power to hundreds of homes without electricity more than two days after supplies were disrupted by storms on Hogmanay.

Scottish Power said 200 homes were still without supplies but should have power by the end of day.
More than 200 engineers were working on restoring power, which has affected homes mostly in rural areas.
A spokesman apologised to customers and stressed that engineers were working flat-out to repair fallen supply lines.
The storms, which led to the cancellation of major Hogmanay events, caused severe disruption in North Lanarkshire and Ayrshire.
Parts of Fife, Central Scotland, Dumfries and Galloway and the Borders were also hit.
At the height of the bad weather, about 26,000 homes were affected.
Scottish Power said it had worked through New Year's Day to restore supplies but conditions were dangerous.
By late afternoon on Tuesday, about 2,500 people remained without electricity.
Fallen poles and trees had resulted in disruption and the company said that about 150 serious faults had been located throughout the network.
The Scottish Power spokesman said: "We understand the inconvenience, especially at this time of year, and thank people for their patience, but we have been dealing with very high winds.
"We have got hundreds of engineers out now, 60 of them have come up from England today and we are going to do everything we can to get people reconnected."
He added that all homes would have power by the end of Wednesday, either through fixed lines or temporary generators.
Fife Council has closed Kirkcaldy's local services centre, Town House, until Monday 7 January, due to damage caused by the high winds.
