The Mounts Baths was closed by a power cut that hit a part of Northampton yesterday afternoon.

Motorists had to be careful during rush hour in the town centre after the traffic lights in Upper Mounts were hit by a power cut at about 3pm.

The failure also affected local businesses, including the Mounts Baths, which was closed until 5pm.

The traffic lights at Mereway, at the Tesco roundabout, were also out of action during this morning's rush-hour.
