Power went off this afternoon in Moffats Lane. I see from the UK Power Networks site (http://www.ukpowernetworks.co.uk/internet/en/power-cuts/list-of-powercuts/) that it was reported at 14:50.

Thanks for that. I see from that link that "An underground electricity cable has faulted on our high voltage network, causing an area wide power cut", and that 733 customers are affected.
