Electricity has been restored to Lyttleton after a power cut that lasted nearly 15 hours.

Lines company Orion said power was lost at about midday yesterday after a failure in a cable connecting to the overhead line to Lyttleton that was difficult to fix.

1,500 properties were affected by the outage.
