Many households across north-east Scotland and the north of England are waking up to their sixth day without power in the aftermath of Storm Arwen. Military personnel have been drafted in to the worst-hit areas in Aberdeenshire, while some families have been forced to relocate to temporary accommodation.
Military personnel are being drafted in to help the recovery effort in Aberdeenshire in the wake of Storm Arwen, with thousands of people still without power after six nights.
British troops could be deployed to help deal with the fallout of Storm Arwen after more than 30,000 homes have been left without power in sub-zero temperatures.
What people are saying?
s2plu82 It isn’t the fault of the government though. If the electric companies don’t have the infrastructure to sort the damage then the government are doing us a favour by providing extra resource.
LindaMullin Why did they wait almost a week when they knew straight off it was as bad as it is? folk been with no power for almost a week! terrible slow response!
