Electricity has been fully restored across north-west England after snow affected power supplies.

About 4,500 properties were left without power in Cheshire and Greater Manchester following snow and high winds on Wednesday.

Electricity North West said the weather caused damage to some power lines in the region, with snow-covered roads causing problems for engineers.

All properties affected have now been reconnected.

Power was disrupted to Marple, Oldham and Scouthead in Greater Manchester, Prestbury in Cheshire and parts of the High Peak in Derbyshire after severe weather conditions.
