A cable fault caused a power cut in the Sliema, Msida area this afternoon.

Sliema was the main area impacted though the generator has been forced to power up Mater Dei Hospital.

Power in Sliema was restored within an hour or so but some areas in Msida, Gzira and Ta' Xbiex remained without power for longer.
