  • Call 105 free of charge to speak to Power Network’s customer service team, report a power cut or damage to the electricity network
  • Tweet @UKPowerNetworksto report a power cut or to receive updates

Stay clear of power lines and report damaged power lines immediately by calling 105 free from either a landline or a mobile phone. If you see electricity lines that are down or causing significant risk to the public, call 999.

Gas leaks

To report a gas or carbon monoxide emergency, or if a pipeline is struck (even if no gas leak has occurred) call 0800 111 999 – 24 hours a day.
