BBC Power Failure

The BBC Television Centre in White City, London, was blacked out last night following a power failure.

Most of the BBC's television service on all platforms were off the air for up to 25 minutes from 21:25.

The corporation has so far failed to give full details of exactly what happened. A spokesman said: "There was a technical fault. We are investigating, what happened."

It is almost exactly a year since the BBC's output was blacked out during the Six O'Clock News, which was blamed on an electrical fault at a sub-station in Shepherd's Bush.
