About 1400 customers around Normanby and Hawera had to endure Christmas power cuts because of a fault on Powerco's electricity network.

Powerco network operations manager Phil Marsh said the power cut occurred about 1.20pm yesterday because of a fault on an overhead line at Murray Ave in Hawera.

Supply was restored to all but 30 of those affected by 2.05pm.

All supply was restored by 3.30pm, Mr Marsh said.

What do you think of Maori trying to restrict access to the breakwater?

It's a ridiculous move and won't help.

Good on them for standing up for themselves.

It's a non-issue since they can't fully cut off access.

Don't know, don't care
