EDF to be held to account over Twickenham World Cup power cut

Utility companies were warned they would be held to account over mistakes
that lead to disrupted services following the fallout from June's power cut.

At a public meeting last Tuesday the council's environment, sustainability
and community scrutiny committee questionned energy company EDF over power
cuts, which saw thousands of Twickenham residents miss England's World Cup
goal against the US. Committee chairman Councillor David Porter said: "It is important utility
companies know they have to answer for any mistakes that are made." The review of the failure which left homes, shops and businesses without
power revealed a faulty component in the ultra-high voltage power cable
network between Laleham and Twickenham.
