We had four separate times when the power dropped out for what can only be timed as only few seconds but it knocked out the sky box each time. We thought it was a storm as there was a flash each time.
Houses opposite us lost all their power but that could have been the consumer unit tripping out. Our area is Coedeva Cwmbran

We had 4 power losses for about 1- 2 second each in Bettws. It caused the computer to crash 4 times and shut the tele down along with resetting the time on a couple of clocks.
