Was an interesting hour off work we had as a result of this (we're in East Street). UK Power Networks were very quick at getting power restored to East Street but I understand St. Mary's Road may be without power until midnight.
Hope no one was hurt (the ambulance call out to this road was apparently unrelated).

Whoa. I always assumed they would blow some kind of fuse. I didn't realise they just kept on sparking.
