Severe weather leaves 30,000 homes in Northern Ireland without power
James Meikle and Megan French
"About 30,000 homes in Northern Ireland were without electricity last night as gales, snow and heavy rain brought down power lines.
"Widespread damage was reported by Northern Ireland Electricity, which called in 200 extra staff to help emergency teams restore supplies. It stood down all crews at midnight as poor visibility, high winds and worsening weather prevented further repairs until morning.
"Earlier a spokesperson for the company said teams had been working on new faults as quickly as it was safe to do so."
