Work is continuing in Diss to resolve a fault involving an underground cable, which has been responsible for a spate of power cuts in the town.
Electricity to more than 2,000 homes was affected on Christmas Day and EDF Energy engineers have been working to resolve a fault in the Mount Street area.
A town centre road - Church Street - remains closed to traffic today after being shut over the weekend to repair the underground cable.
Around 150 households experienced another power cut between 8am and 12.45pm on Saturday after a replacement generator in the Mount Street car park experienced a technical fault.
