|Two hurt in pole felling incident |
(about 11 hours later)
Two people are in a stable condition in hospital after an electricity pole was cut down in west Belfast.
About 1,400 homes in the area were left without electricity following the incident. Police said they were treating the incident as criminal.
Kirsty Forsyth from NIE said engineers were working to restore power to the area.
"An NIE pole has been cut down at one of our main substations on the Glen Road," she said.
"I would appeal to people to stay away from the area and let our crews get on with their work."
