We have received communications from our suppliers regarding the MBORC (Matters Beyond Our Reasonable Control) declaration for some areas of the country. Please find the information regarding this below:

"Parts of the UK experienced severe weather over the weekend and into this week, including heavy rain, high winds and flooding, as a result of storm Angus. This caused serious impacts to our suppliers infrastructure, with damage both above and below ground, and fault intake in affected areas at extremely high levels. Access and mobility issues are also causing serious problems for our engineering teams in these areas.

Our suppliers declared MBORC for repair activities in two areas, with effect from 23:59 22 November 2016 and two areas with effect from 23:59 23 November 2016.
