Last month, residents of Blewitts Cottages, New Road, Rainham contacted Jon Cruddas MP regarding continuous power cuts. Residents had experienced cuts to power three or four times since the start of the new year, leaving some vulnerable residents with no light or power for medical equipment.

Jon Cruddas urgently contacted UK Power Networks on the 6th of March, expressing the danger vulnerable residents are facing when being left without power. Within days UK Power Networks were present along Blewitts Cottages carrying out works to fix the continuous issue.
