Plymouth Barbican restaurants forced to close doors due to power cut
AN UNDERGROUND cable fault has been blamed for a six hour black out on the Barbican at the weekend.
Customers of Western Power Distribution on the Barbican were without power for almost six hours on Saturday night.
A spokesman said the fault was responsible for the supply cut off which began at 3.38pm on Saturday and affected 33 customers.
The Barbican Kitchen was forced to cancel all table reservations booked after 6pm and the restaurant was closed for the evening as a result.

Junior assistant, Heidi Wilkinson, said: "We ended up closing the restaurant for the evening. We lost an entire evening's trade."
A spokeswoman for WPD said: "We had an underground cable fault it affected 33 customers.
"It started in the afternoon at 3.38pm and we had some problems trying to locate the fault.
"Some customers may have gone back on for an hour but we had to take them off once we had located the fault in order to repair it. We had 22 customers back on at 9pm and the other 11 went on in the early hours of Sunday morning."
The cause is still not known.
