Vulnerable families are being urged to join a special register to get help if there is a power cut.

UK Power Networks has a priority services register aimed at families with children aged up to two-years-old and elderly or disabled people.

They will be given extra help, if needed, in partnership with the British Red Cross but it does not mean electricity supplies can be restored any quicker.

The service is free.
