TESCO in the town centre was shut today after a power cut. Staff at the superstore redirected shoppers as they pulled up on Viaduct Street.
The petrol station, the main shop and the outside cashpoint were all out of use from between 1.30pm and 2.30pm.
None of the other nearby businesses were affected by the electrical fault.
A Tesco spokeswoman said: "Our store was closed briefly because of a power cut, but the problem was soon resolved and we were able to reopen.
"We apologise to customers for any inconvenience this caused."
