There is nothing for us to sort.
1) This is an independent free helpsite for people with reception problems, we don't maintain the transmitters or the electricity network or National grid or control the weather.
2) You may have noticed from the post following yours that the BBC reported the "fault".
The "fault" was actually due to one of the many power outages cause by severe damage in many places as a result of Storm Arwen! Had you referred to Electricity NorthWest's website, you might have been aware of it!
3) Did you not experience any power outages yourself? If not, you were lucky because some others in your postcode did!
