    Thousands of residents in the Auckland suburb of Flat Bush have been affected by a power outage after a car crashed into a power pole overnight

    Thousands of residents in the Auckland suburb of Flat Bush have been affected by a power outage after a car crashed into a power pole overnight


    Emergency services were called to Chapel Road around 11.30 last night to the single-vehicle incident.

    It's thought around five-thousand properties have been affected, although Vector redirected power flows for some customers within 30 minutes of the outage.

    A Vector spokesperson says crews are onsite installing a new power pole, which is currently being tested.

    Power is expected to be fully restored by 9am.
