Sark In The Dark: Islanders Report Power Cuts

Homes and businesses across Sark have been left without electricity for several hours.

The powercut began at around 1:45am on Wednesday 19 January.

There has still been no official word on the cause of the outage, but it is believed to be due to a faulty cable.

Islanders have taken to social media sharing pictures of oil lamps and candles being used to light their homes.

It's understood that most properties had power intermittently restored as of around 9:15am.
