The evening of Sunday 7th February saw a power cut across parts of Edinburgh that lasted for approximately thirty minutes.

The outage began at around 21:20 and ended roughly half an hour later.

Areas affected included Newington, Marchmont, Bruntsfield and Tollcross.

The Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, which currently houses Covid-19 patients, ran on generator power during this time.

The cause of the power cut is currently unclear.

The Student will continue to publish details as the story develops.
