A major blackout was reported by British papers early Friday night, and not only were homes in England without power, but some airports, railways, and even mobile in some areas, were temporarily unusable, so there was no signal strength.
There were problems with the power supply in London and in the South East, Midlands, South West and Wales for about an hour and there was an “incident” that caused two generators.
Among the big British newspapers, we found live broadcasts on the Telegraph site, and they already recall the memory of the Great London Power Break in 2003, which affected about half a million people.
According to the Northern Powergrid distribution company, 110,000 of the 3.9 million homes they serve were outages.
Traffic lights were confused and traffic police had to be called to many intersections. In addition, there were delays in rail travel, such as Clapham Junction, total chaos, Victoria Station, and Newcastle Airport for fifteen minutes. Fortunately, Heathrow, Gatwick and Luton airports were not affected by the outage.
PEOPLE WERE LIGHTING THEIR UNDERGROUNDED BUILDINGS WITH THEIR MOBILES, AND THE ALARMS SIGNED ALWAYS.
