The Arc Leisure Centre in Matlock is currently closed because of a power cut.

The power cut is affecting arround 557 homes in and around Darley Dale as well as the leisure centre.

The centre’s phone lines are all down so updates are available on Arc’s Facebook page and via Derbyshire Dales District Council’s Twitter feed.

All swimming at the centre has been cancelled for this evening as even if the power comes back on as scheduled, the water pumps will need time to make the pools usable again. The council is however, hoping to re-open the gym and main sports hall.

Western Power said they estimate power will be restored by 9pm.
