Cove Burgh Hall opened its doors today to offer a warm space to anyone left without power.

The village hall announced this morning that they could provide power points for charging devices and kitchen facilities if anyone needs them.

Power was restored after 1pm and the hall then closed.

A spokesperson said: "Cove Burgh Hall has been opened to provide a warm, safe space for all those in the village without power.

"As well as warmth, the hall can provide power points for charging devices, as well as kitchen facilities for making hot drinks and heating up food - bring along your own food and drinks, please, and we can supply the facilities, including cups, dishes and cutlery if required.

"Please let anyone without internet or transport know and offer information and lifts to those who may require it.

"There's no need to let us know you're coming along - just pitch up and you'll find the building open."

In an update after 1pm, the hall said: "We hope having the hall available was helpful and would like to thank our amazing volunteers for manning our warm space for all those in the community who needed it."
