A second blackout in just over a week, hit not just Los Gigantes but the whole of Tenerife for several hours early this morning.

The problem occurred at 1am at a sub-station in Las Caletillas. 50% of power was restored by around 5am to Santa Cruz and the south of the islands. Full power should be resumed during the course of today.

The emergency services had few serious incidents to deal with because the blackout occurred during the night, but a few people had to be rescued from lifts.
